    Yes. No hesitation from me in that answer. Just make it 21 and over.

    Yes. Legalize it, handle it like alcohol, and lightly tax it. Look at it this way, Republicans can use all the money saved on prisons and the failed "War on Drugs" effort, for more useless wars with everyone they want to fight.

    Win win!

    Care to elaborate on why? I'm not aware of any valid reasons why it wouldn't be an improvement.

    No.
    It should be left to the states to decide by vote of the citizens.
    But I hold that view on a lot of social things. I always thought it was wrong for the government to overturn those state votes who banned abortion and SSM even if they had civil unions in place. I don't believe a group of political appointed people in robes have the right to do that.

    I interpret the question to mean this. Legalize it federally, which would then allow the states to make their own decisions.
    Oy vey!

    For how long Radcen? Until the next political appointed justice comes along and says differently denying the voters of any state who wished to see it banned? We see it happening over and over again with all "social" issues. The overwhelming number of people in many states have voted to ban certain things only to have their vote taken away by some political activist judge. I don't call that freedom, do you?

    yes, the government has no right to restrict it.
