    I highly doubt either of these accounts, but if that is a reason not to legalize then you better outlaw booze this instant.

    What is the carnage annually on highways directly caused by drunk drivers in comparison to two deaths thought to be linked in two average everyday deaths in the United States. If you want to reverse the legalization in Colorado based on these two lonely reports against a backdrop of millions dying on the highways, thousands dying by hand gun. In the second you might as well ban hand guns.

    Considering how many use it, how long its been around, the proven medical benefits, proven social benefits, two highly suspicious cases in a weak fulcrum n which to leverage further restrictions.

    Lots of things in this world are far far far more harmful than pot, you just believed all the BS the anti pot crowd lied about for decades.
    Too many scientists/physicians disagree with you, I have my reservations on legalization because of the adverse affects it could have on society. I would feel better if associations of these scientists from sociologists to psychiatrists and those who deal with addictions would not be against legalization.

    Mornin F&L. Tell you what, when the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the American Society of Addiction Medicine no longer oppose legalization, then I will no longer have any reservations.

    Not true. Again, there have been zero cases of anyone ever dying from overdosing on pot. Marijuana has medical uses, it is used all the time.

    Adverse affects on society? Drunks beat their wives, start fights, etc, someone on pot doesn't. I'd rather have a stoned society than a drunk society.

    For decades the US blocked all kinds of studies into marijuana, because the failed war on drugs and hysteria and hype. We are learning all kinds of wonderful things about this plant.

    People smoke pot, and the sky didn't fall. It is a safe product, borne out by the facts. You don't want to see that....yet, you are OK with liquor being legal, pure hypocrisy.

    Like I stated to F&L, the day the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the American Society of Addiction Medicine no longer oppose legalization, then I will no longer have any reservations.

    The Canadian Medical Association, The British Columbia Medial Association, the Supreme Court of Canada and the Canadian College of Psychiatrists are all on board.

    That is good enough for me.

    And when a mainstream media outlet has real evidence, not hearsay on a blog, reports an actual serious medical problem I will have a second look.

    Monday, 200,000 people gathered in Vancouver to sell, promote, smoke and celebrate marijuana. I checked. 17 medical calls from ENT's on hand, the worst was sprained ankle. Reported acts of violence: 0. Worst case for cops, crowd control.m Most interesting call as cops as first responders: a woman going into hyopthermia because she was topless and in shorts.

    The record is pretty clear

    Yes, of course! Treat it like alcohol, and there you go.

    Adverse impact on society...tax money raised for education, less people in jail, knocks down the drug cartels. Works for me. Marijuana isn't addictive, certainly nothing like alcohol or tobacco, which you don't want to ban.
