    It's possible I think but there's no way I could ever say for certain. 99% of people know that drugs aren't exactly good for you or that it's something that they should actively be seeking out and trying, however, they do, and it's like the people that smoke cigarettes or chew tobacco when they first tried it they got sick but for some reason they did it a second and third and fourth time and now are hooked. It's hard to explain people's choices sometimes but it can't be cookie cutter. I personally think that if people could grow and sell a drug like weed then ultimately it will lose its allure over time. Look at smoking, less and less people are smoking now as people see the hazards first hand and either dont start or quit. As for reducing things like meth labs and stuff like that I don't think that putting one drug ahead of the other will do much to reduce meth usage but I do think that ultimately it comes down to just good, honest education and raising kids the right way. If you want to reduce meth labs then you have to reduce the buyers of the meth and you do that by changing peoples wants or desires and the reasons for using drugs in the first place. Anyway, that's my point of view and it could be naive but I just don't believe in scare tactics and black and white rules.

    It's adorable how you think that people don't get high and drive already, and that it would still be illegal to get high and drive if pot were legal.

    It's already been pointed out that the same rules as alcohol apply while driving, working or baby sitting.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Why give people an even bigger group of things to get disoriented on to harm others on the road? Has DUI or Vehicular Homicide stopped people from drinking and driving? Nope. Its why I am all for medicinal marijuana it has medical purposes that help....just not for recreational.

    I know they do but let's not make it legal so even MORE people do so.

    Grow it locally and there will be less of a market for 'imports'. Even if they try theres no way Cartels will be able to afford to be better armed then the Mexican government by growing a plant, its literally a weed whose only economic value comes from the fact its illegal.

    Actually much of the higher grade Cartel pot is grown in the US.
