    We got some Dem lawmakers here on the Texas border who would definitely not want it legalized.

    I disagree, even though it seems rather tongue in cheek. Even if pot is legalized street sales will still be illegal and there will still be an illicit drug trade in pot.

    It is tongue in cheek. If you'd like it spelled out: There are a lot of posters who wouldn't be able to justify police shootings without marijuana.

    It seems to be the first thing they'll run to when screaming that a cop is justified: "Omfg! This person had mari-yuana in they system! The horror. The audacity!"

    As if marijuana did anything other than make people lazy and laugh at Beavis and Butthead reruns.

    Does not change my opinion.

    Ex-pot smoker here. I fully support, unconditionally, the complete legalization of pot, present and retroactively.

    That said, if the day ever comes that weed is legalized and you're still bitching incessantly about pot, I will personally push for the life imprisonment of every man, woman and child who ever came into contact with marijuana. Because compared to people who don't have free elections, access to clean water, education, housing, electricity, and health care, I am so unbelievably sick of listening to your crap.

    Try sticking with the topic of the thread. You made the assertion that the feds have absolute control over legality of pot so it doesn't matter what the states decide. Your solution was for the feds to keep it illegal and the states to vote for legalization. As it stands, the only way the states will regain their power to decide on this one is if the feds legalize it. This would NOT make it legal in all states. It would only make it legal on federal land. The states' vote would then be honored as to legality of the drug.

    When a state votes to ban things that they don't have a right to ban....and the court steps in and overturns the ban...yes that absolutely is Freedom. There are many things that are not subject to a popular vote and they usually involve basic fundamental rights.

    And once again you fail to recognize all it takes is a federal judge to strike down any states vote. They have done it with abortion. They have done it with SSM, as somehow you think miraculously they will respect the vote of the citizens on marijuana.
