    Re: National Legalization of Marijuana

    I'm against and i'm still think that all legalized drugs(i'm sure that after weed we will legalize something else, more strong) are very dangerous for our society! Not only for health but for "brains" too.
    pot usage will lead to moral degradation!

    Marijuana appeals to youths, and for that reason, regulation is appropriate.
    Yes, regulation is appropriate. Ceding control to an unregulated black market insures that it can easily find its way into the hands of those youths you are so concerned about. If you want it regulated, that could and absolutely should occur with legalization - regulation does NOT occur as it stands right now.

    Your argument could've just as easily been against the legalization of PlayStation. It's telling that you focus on weed as the problem.

    So I'm clear, you feel that's the appropriate policy for marijuana?

    We aren't talking about other drugs right now.

    yes....for growers, sellers, and distributors

    i could care less if the penalties/fines etc for users are reduced

    i want the people who market the drugs...who sell the drugs....who transport them across the country to know that if and when they are caught, it wont be a slap on the wrist

    mine may not be the majority opinion, but i wouldnt call it a fringe opinion either

    You can't strongarm adults into behaving the way you want. You have to convince them.

    We managed it with tobacco without putting smokers in prison. We can do it with marijuana.

    really?

    we cant strongarm people into doing what we want them to do?

    do you WANT to pay taxes? why do you?

    do you WANT to drive the speed limit? why do you?

    of course you can strongarm people in behaving as you like....all you have to do is make the penalties harsh enough that they voluntarily stop the behavior

    you ever raised kids? parents strongarm them ALL the time.....

    So I assume you'd put McCain in jail for 15 year minimum as well, since he's a drug kingpin? We'd need to add the CEOs of our pharmaceutical companies too!

    In case the point isn't clear, our society doesn't actually care about people taking 'drugs' or getting high. You're suggesting we carve out some drugs used by some people for incredibly harsh treatment while drugs just as harmful and just as deadly are freely sold everywhere. It just doesn't make any sense unless you're a prison lobbyist and want to guarantee that our jails and prisons remain full forever, hopefully shatter our own world record on numbers and numbers per capita incarcerated.

    you dont like alcohol....get the laws changed

    see if i give a damn

    illegal drugs....pot, cocaine, heroin, pills, crack and many many more are harmful to our society, and to the individuals that consume them

    i have seen it firsthand.....

    i will fight the legalization of all drugs, period

    you will fight for the other side.....we both seem to have our minds completely made up

    and maybe you dont care if people take drugs or "get high".......i do

    Do whatever the **** you want man. All I will say to you is that people will do what they want, and no matter what you do pot will live on past your efforts to stop it. If you feel like being aggressive with people that are just having a good time and enjoying life is worth your efforts, then that is your choice and I hope you have fun with it.
