    I can't see why anyone would need a rehab for marijuana. If there is a need then I am sure the market can provide it and groups like AA and NA already exist. Don't you know what Bob Saget did for his addiction?

    I have heard people say they would support it so long as there were no taxpayer funded rehabs and only if there were. I have heard all sorts of other conditions. I see no reason for any conditions, other than to restricting its availability to minors. We are GOING to legalize it whether the drug warriors like it or not. The polls are headed in one direction on this issue.

    The government should not be arresting people for plants. Period.

    Re: Legalisation of Marijuana

    i've read a lot of comments saying that it isn't any worse then alcohol so we should legalize it.

    Doing this can cause multiple problems. Start with one type of drug (ie. Alcohol) and legalize it. okay fine. Do I agree with Alcohol being legal? No. I don't agree because of incidents involved in its use. However, that's a different topic for another day. Legalize marijuana, you could see increased high-school drop outs, increased debt (improper use of income) and possibly more problems then what I have listed. Bottom line is, when we bring another drug into America to be legal, it starts a chain. In one or two decades, pot could be legal. Marijuana is already legal in California and look how their economy is doing on a state-to-state level (of course other figures are involved also).

    That argument assumes that there will be a sizable increase in those that use post legalization, studies of places where their stance has became more lenient does not bear out this assumed increase in usage.

    Those who use for the most part use already -granted there will be some that will try due to it no longer being illegal - however this could and would be offset by taking the appropriate steps to delay the age of first use - keep it out of the hands of adolescents and teenagers.

    Anyhow, I could care less what an adult does to their body, it is theirs to as they please with - so long as they do not harm others. If they do harm others then they face legal ramifications for their actions - just as it is now for alcohol - DUI? legal ramifications. bar fight? again legal issues, have a cpl beers watching a football game (or even get ****faced during the football game) so what. try to drive home after getting ****faced, or beat your wife, or get in a fight, or run naked through the streets? then there are issues. Lets not make redundant laws just in case another could potentially be broken. Potential crimes are not crimes.

    My belief is that it should be, and two major parties here already advocate it. What are your thoughts?
    I believe it should be legal for recreational use. Locking someone up for smoking or selling weed is just wrong and totally excessive.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So, should it be illegal for a man to be lazy and un-motivated ?
    Marijuana should be legal, taxed and controlled, just as alcohol is.
    Evidentially, people remember NOT prohibition as I do.

    No such thing as too much sex - this is one of the best possible exercises.

    And the same applies to marijuana users.
    IMO, both of these are risky, but man must be allowed to do risky things.
    And its been proved that prohibition does not work, a thousand times over..
    What on earth does it take ?

    It should be regulated and discouraged in the same way anything that is smoked is covered. Cigarettes, Cigars, whatever. And please not around me.

    if they put the other people'S lives on the line it becomes more than risk taking as an example of drunk driving .
