    I worked for 40 years as a machinist and smoked weed most of that time. I contributed much more to the company than a fork lift operator.

    Bad idea. Christie's appetite alone would result in an increased demand which would drive the prices up.

    Ignorant people dont examine all the factors and information and apply critical thinking.

    Because it's politically correct? Because they dont want it in the hands of kids? Because they go hand in hand with Big Pharmacy which doesnt want to see it legalized? If caffeine was illegal, would you support the AMA keeping it that way? Plenty of evidence that it's harmful, esp. in large quanties. Or..should they just start a movement to make it illegal?

    And you continue to ignore that their approval has nothing to do with whether or not things are 'legal.' Like sugar, white flour, transfats, cigarettes, caffeine, alcohol. Do you want all those things that arguably do more damage to Americans that abuse them should be illegal? Get the govt to really become a nanny state?

    Yes, you should have included the other drugs as well. Nothing like attempting to slant your information. People certainly act differently on meth and angel dust and heroin. And they have to pay a buttload more to do those drugs and hence more criminal activity. Pot is pretty cheap compared to 'other drugs' and it mostly makes people non-violent.

    You havent produced the links to the 'truckloads of pot' coming out of CO yet and a couple of us asked....

    He's not posting anything that isnt peer-reviewed science (that I've seen. I didnt click everyone of his links but many I've seen supported before).

    So? There were plenty more deaths from 'recreational use' of bicycles in CO Accidents happen....people slip and fall and die in their kitchens preparing healthy food! Again, what kind of nanny state do you want to live in?

    Re: Should Marijuana Be Legalized Nationwide?

    I tend to lean towards yes but I do recognize the dangers of those drugs. There are two parts for me that makes me lean towards yes: the first is that people should have the choice to consume or intake whatever they want as long as it doesn't give physical harm to someone else. The second is that many of these things, such as marijuana, comes from the Earth and is totally natural and so if the Earth provides it for us then who are we to determine that as natural beings of the Earth we can't interact the way we see fit. On the other hand drugs have ruined many lives and families and will continue to have that effect on individuals regardless if those drugs are legal or illegal. Education about usage and consequences should be at the forefront but should be void of scare tactics and false information. Just be honest about where it comes from and what the possible dangers are and let people decide their next step in my opinion.

    Excellent post.
    What are your thoughts on the following, and please know that my understanding on addiction is limited.
    If pot were legalized, and people could grow, even sell, the product, making a bit of money on the side, would we see i.e. less meth labs?
