Crime will continue to rise. Make it legal, so there is no money for the crooks to fight over. ---where is that pipe??

    I hear this argument a lot, but it doesn't make sense to me. There are heavy taxes on tobacco, but you don't see people growing it in their basements to get around paying the tax.

    As far as the issue in general goes, I'm fairly neutral towards it. There are some benefits and drawbacks to legalizing it in about equal measure. At the very least it should be legalized for medical use.

    I'm so glad I didn't vote with Vader.

    Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    Definitely it should be. I don’t know if I’d go to the length that “All” drugs should be. There are some that are HIGHLY addictive whose damage is very quick and very long lasting that I believe may be in the best interest to keep from being distributed. However, there are many, Marijuana chief among them, whose addictiveness and danger is not that far off from Alcohol or Tobacco in short or long term use.

    I don’t have an issue with a “sin tax” on it as long as a “sin tax” is still on Alcohol and Tobacco as I’d consider it in the same vein as them. I think it should be sold and regulated with a mixed model of alcohol regulations and laws and harsher public smoking laws (since 2nd hand marijuana I believe does have a more proven affect on others around it than even cigarette smoke).

    I disagree with the notion that a strong black market will start up. There will be one for a short time after but within 5 to 10 years that’ll be mostly nill. Homegrown Tobacco isn’t a huge thing, and honestly neither is black market booze when compared to the over arching sale of alcohol. In reality the majority of those that use it will end up going for the route of safer, more convenient, likely higher quality for the price, and most of all legal options than a black market one when given the choice. I wouldn’t be surprised to see low quality “bottom shelf” type variations akin to how one could buy aristocrat instead of Absolut.

    I disagree. I've been smoking over fifty years and I never met anyone it has killed. The dea lies and even says that it is addictive. That's total bull.

    Water is more dangerous than pot. A contestent recently died from water intoxication.

    I get a kick out of the lies the media tells about it. They often say that so and so was smoking marijuana during a crime but fail to mention that so and so was drunk out of their minds, too. They blame the pot and disregard more abusive drugs.

    It can bring on depression and make people delusional.
    If you have been smoking it for fifty years and you have never met a 'pot head' then you couldnt have been looking.
    You dont die of an overdose and it doesnt usually make people violent but its still a nasty drug

    Ugg I swear to ****ing god, people like you and idiotic ridiculous arguments like this and paranoid ranting is one of the largest reasons why its going to be difficult for the next 10 to 20 years to actually get this legalized. Cause god forbid people listen to the folks addressing this in sane and reasonable matter that reasonably discusses Marijuana and other drugs without both grossly under stating or over stating its effects, dangers, and draw backs.
