    Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. Let the state tax it with a sin tax like they do alcohol, tobacco and gambling. Let's reserve our prisons for actual victim-crimes. Let's stop ruining the lives of otherwise law-abiding people by putting felonies on their record and condemning them to lives of under-employment and public assistance -- and other criminal behavior as they try to support themselves in a world where a felony marijuana conviction is a scarlet letter for life.

    Enough already.

    Colorado stash: $184M in marijuana taxes

    Colorado expects to take in about $184 million in tax revenue from marijuana in the first 18 months after legislation -- and much of that money will be funneled into teaching kids to stay away from pot.
    There you go, 184 million reasons for legalization, not to mention the money saved from dealers not being incarcerated. All that money was going into the pockets of gangs and thugs.

    I would support the legalization for medical use.

    Also for recreational use, but only if use disqualified the user from welfare, Medicaid and there were extra penalties for crimes committed by users under the influence and crimes committed to support a drug habit.

    Legal (and regulated).

    Can't stand the stuff myself, though.

    Totally one-sided issue. The only arguments against are unfounded horror stories with no basis in the scientific history of medicine. It's never killed anyone, ever and it's not a 'gateway' drug. Compare the fatalities stats for cigs and booze and it's beyond a joke. The government just wants to preserve its blank cheque for a 'war' that was lost before it started.

    The real question is: what gives the government the right to decide what you can and cant put into your own body?

    Yes, acquiring and possess even controversial forms of private property is declared inalienable and indefeasible in most State Constitutions in the US. And, not only that, but there is also federal precedent in support of that very same concept.
