    Me too. I'm really not seeing that many actually arguing against it. Maybe it's the feds.

    The purpose of law is not to protect us from ourselves, but to protect us from others. Pot laws protect us from no one, and, in fact, make our lives more dangerous as the gangs and cartels fight it out to see who gets to sell illegal drugs.

THC is available in prescription form via the trade name Dronabinol. Dronabinol is a CII. Why not just legalize other CII's like morphine, Oxycontin, and other drugs for public recreational use? Doing so is foolish. Marijuana should not be legalize. THC does have some medical benefits, which is why there is prescription THC available. There is no need to legalize weed.
    I'm in favor of legalizing all those things, along with LSD, shrooms, ecstasy, cocaine, etc etc. The only drugs I don't favor legalizing are the ones that make people violent, such as meth and PCP. Aside from that, what you put in your body is entirely your business. I do think that certain activities should disqualify you from certain state funded medical services. If you give yourself cancer smoking, don't expect me to pay for it.

    Alright, that was mostly a joke, but is anyone else sketched out by this? There's only one person arguing against legalizing in the thread. How come there are 27 votes against both hemp and marijuana? I smell a votebot.

    A fair point. Alcohol doesn't necessarily make you violent, though. It just makes you stupid. Either way, that's one battle I'm not gonna fight.

    According to a 1998 government study, over a third of violent crimes involved alcohol consumption, and that in two-thirds of incidences of domestic violence, the participants had been drinking. (http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/pub/ascii/AC.TXT) Alcohol is, by far, the most socially destructive drug.

    Well, maybe they should just smoke a bowl and chill out instead. Like I said, that's one battle I'm not planning on fighting.

    Yes theres no good reason why it shouldn't be. Prohibition failed and always will. Besides, alcohol is by far more dangerous.

    Farm it, tax it and sell licences to private growers.

    Not only would it stop millions of people criminalising themselves to smoke a bit of weed but it would also generate valuable revenues at a time when most governments seem to have a cash shortage.
