    Legalize it, end the war on drugs use 1/10th of the savings on drug education and treatment programs (reluctantly as it's not my problem if you use drugs).

    i could give a **** less whether or not you think i am a libertarian

    i have said previously in countless posts, it is the "closest" box i can check related to how i lean

    as far as your second statement.....it isnt your problem?

    maybe, maybe not

    I do not fit on your list. On the list of issues I think our politicians should work on, it simply does not appear. I would tend to question any politician who makes it an issue in the campaign simply because I think his priorities are ****ed. There should be a good reason to change laws. I am not opposed to legalization, but lets worry about important stuff first.

    There is a dirty little secret. SOME people can use marijuana just like they use alcohol. Function perfectly well during the week, hang out, smoke a few joints and get mellow once or twice during the week and maybe get lit on the weekend...life is good. Others...others are addicts. Psychological addiction comes with a cost. Homelessness, joblessness, increase in crime, increase in health care costs, to say nothing of the increase in those populations from homeless people in other states moving to a state with friendlier drug rules. Its far too early to tell what kind of long term impact it will actually have on schooling, graduation rates, college attendance, job prep, etc.

    Will there be identified gains? Sure. Incarceration costs may immediately decrease. And as far as 'addictions' go, its an easily treated disorder. Essentially...there is no treatment for marijuana addiction. But...all addicts tend to suffer greater health problems. Someone is going to have to foot the bill. To that end, Colorado would be wise to bank that money.

    Thinks? I know, your posts are big government authoritarian. Sorry.


    i have said previously in countless posts, it is the "closest" box i can check related to how i lean
    How do you lean that way? what philopsophy and positions do you hold.


    as far as your second statement.....it isnt your problem?
    Nope, I don't care who you ****, marry, or do drugs with, not my problem (libertarian)

    maybe, maybe not

    but when a stoner gets behind the wheel and takes out someone you love.....remember that statement

    Stoners drive at 5mph.... but in all seriousness, reckless driving is reckless driving whether its beer, booze, weed, or a ham sammich. negiglent homiced is the same.


    maybe it will give you solace.....maybe

    lol. playing to my emotions? how's that working.


    What are your libertarian ideals?>


    Do you support marriage equality?
    Ending the war on drugs?

    Do you support ending domestic spying?
    Do you support ending non-due process detainments of american citizens?
    Do you support ending all coporate welfare?
    Do you support reducing our military to a defensive force?
    Do you support ending prison terms, and laws against victimless crimes?


    Anything else you want to add?

    Oh I agree, that it won't be used for that, and ultimately it shouldnt, but if we have a gov truly concerned for the health of drug users, I'd rather see the money go to treatment.

    As far as "skyrocketing use", can you extapolate the data you want me to see? thing is huge. Any increase is a honeymoon period, you'll see the same with cuban cigars as they are made available.

    Addiction to marijuana?

    what's the withdrawal like? how many people are currently addicted?

    I'm still curious about this "marijuana addiction".
