"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"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I think there should be medical "marijuana" available in all states. It should be regulated by the states, whether they ban it, decriminalize it or make it completely legal, with or without regulations (although I do think there needs to be at least some basic regulations, such as the regulations tobacco sale and use face). I personally feel it should be decriminalized at least and that no one should actually go to jail based on simple possession or use of marijuana.
I also feel though that employers, both private and public, should be able to still test for it and either refuse employment or terminate employment based on its use (or possession at work). If someone has a prescription for it, then that could be taken into account for testing positive for it, however I also feel that medical marijuana should be in vapor or oil form rather than being smoked (I've read/heard that the pills simply don't work, but vaporizing marijuana works really well). There is no reason that it would have to be used /done at any job though. It should not be prescribed more "openly" than other medications either though.

The arguments for legalization are incredibly long and logical. Legalization means billions more dollars for governments, less non-violent people in jail, less money for organized crime and more money for police to catch real criminals.
I am guessing almost everyone who is against it has never been stoned. You should try it...it's no big deal. In moderation, it's no more debilitating then alcohol is in moderation (if not less so)...just in a somewhat different way.
The stigma around pot is WAY overblown.
Having said that, I am not a huge fan of the stuff...makes me a tad paranoid if I overdue it.
