    This whole controversy surrounding marijuana is insane and it so obviously being skewed by politics, which is ironic, because every year, more and more people agree to just legalize the damn stuff already. So where is all this political pressure coming from that keeps it in this BS legal-limbo state?

    I doubt it. Look how the government taxes cigarettes. And consider how strict the laws are regarding the sell of cigarettes.

    Not only shouldn't it be allowed to become legal, consumable alcohol and tobacco should be made illegal as well. There is no need for any of those products.

    my guess is that it will take a solid 60 percent majority of public opinion to get legalization. we might be ten years away from that. politicians are more concerned with covering their asses.

    when enough people get tired of having their kids get criminal records for possession of something that they themselves got away with, that might help turn the tide. and some kids even lose their grants because of this failed, idiotic attempt at neoprohibition, so that should chip away at support for the failed war on pot, as well.

    LOL. Any child of mine would be BEGGING the cops to hold onto them, if they were ever caught with Pot on them. They'd by 1000 times more scared of ME than of the police in that sort of situation. Then again, I turned in a college roommate for possession of marijuana during my freshman year in college and got him expelled.

    While I don't like you at all anyway.

    I like you even less now, which is hard to do but there it is.

    Dick move.

    The college I went to has a Zero Tolerance Policy (or at least did) for alcohol and drugs on campus. They also did probably 3-4 unscheduled room searches every trimester (11 week term). If contraband was found, everyone in the room got expelled. No questions asked. I gave him two warnings over a four day period, then turned him in. No way was I going to lose MY education because he couldn't follow the rules..... alcohol in the room. drugs in the room. tobacco in the room. Attempted to date rape his girlfriend in the room one night while I was there (about 2am and he was drunk as a skunk). Trust me, this guy had no business being at a college to begin with.

    Re: Marijuna

    I'm all for legalizing weed, because I know several people that actually contribute to society that smoke it. My biggest pet peeve though is when these stoners claim to have "medical problems". "I need my medicine," blah, blah, blah. Its all just a bunch of bull**** to get high easier. These morons are abusing something that some actual sick people need. Cancer patients deserve every right to have access to marijuana, but some of these damn pot heads that are constantly complaining about being in pain, depressed, need to get off their ass on do something. You feel so much better when you finally stop smoking anyways. Marijuana causes anxiety and depression, trust me. There is nothing wrong with doing it every once in awhile or on the weekends, but this everday, even at work BS is annoying as hell to me.

    Make it legal at the federal level and let states and municipalities handle how they want.

    In my life, I have yet to hear a good reason to keep marijuana illegal.
