    decriminalize weed, the inanimate object, and criminalize people being drunk or high in public, the act of abusing the inamimate object.

    I could be wrong but I didn't see your name on the "which drugs should be legalized for recreational use" poll.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I could be wrong but that doesn't answer the question and has nothing to do with the topic. Do you have anything to actually say about the topic and my question or are you just derailing?

    If you are going to bring up alcohol and tobacco in a marijuana legalization debate then it is just as right to bring up other drugs. If you think some drugs should be legal for recreational use and some shouldn't then why wonder what my views are on alcohol and cigarettes?

    Except you didn't bring up anything, other than another thread. If you want to ask me about other drugs, then ask me, don't ask if I'm participating in another thread. However, don't expect to ask me a question and me answer it when you wont' even asnwer mine.

    I ask you about Alcohol becasue every single thing you stated was problematic about marijuana being legalized ALSO directly applies to alcohol. However, harder drugs have more issues OVER TOP of what Alcohol and Marijuana have, with higher physical addicting properties than either of them, more mental damage than either of them, and longer after affects and quicker deterioration than them. Indeed, Marijuana and its issues from use are far closer to the dangers of alcohol than most heavier drugs. As such, all the things you listed as a reason for keeping Marijuana illegal can equally apply to alcohol, where as with harder drugs there'd be additional reasons. As such, I ask again...

    If those things you stated are your reason for keeping marijuana illegal, why to are you not calling for alcohol to become illegal because it fits the exact same criteria.

    Share your opinions.

    WTF is a Class C drug?

Couple that with the fact that these areas tend to work Outside as I believe your source mentioned (open-air) or when they do operate out of mobility (vehicles) these vehicles are usually poorly maintained and usually easy targets of equipment violation traffic stops (broken tail light, etc) which then result in drug arrests.

    I think it has less to do with a "LETS ARREST US SUM' BLACK SUNSA BITCHES" than people who use these statistics tend to think.

    Bah, I could care less about living forever in that sense.

    Its being the worthless peice of garbage waste of human DNA that you become when you become seriously addicted to drugs is what I don't want to be or see.

    Which is why I don't see a problem with legalization of marijuana, as long as people can stay productive when being a user of it (I don't mean currently high at work).
