    Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    Independent-

    If only life was so simple that many folks who end up in prison could have just picked a life of work rather than crime. For most first timers in prison it was a dumb thoughtless action not a serious selection like in some high school career day. It isn't as if the line for Judge, Jury, and executioner was too full so the guy picked repeat felon.

    Not saying there are no bad apples but making blanket statements is best left to the old curmudgeons who think they know all...

    While the old heroin comes on the heels of pot song is the traditional 'example' of the death trap blowing a doobie can be, these days most harder drugs come from GrandPa's medicine cabinet not from overseas. This isn't the 70's. Rush Limbaugh knew exactly how to get his oxycodone, and if that old fat holier than thou could figure it out anyone can.

    Legal or illegal, people who want any drugs can find them. Bet within two blocks of where anyone lives these days there is at least one person who knows where, and for how much. Bet within a block there is at least one dealer/meth lab/convict with a drug conviction.

    War on Drugs has been going on for most my adult life, can't says I can see any progress or a victory parade in sight.

    Me too. It should be legalized, across the board, with the exception of minors.

    I disagree. It should remain illegal and the states who have "legalized" it for medical purposes need to be brought to court. They violate federal drug laws by doing so.

    Of course, alcoholics all started with their first beer... and guys that drive get-away cars in bank robberies all had learner permits.... but that opposite is hardly true. Only a small portion of those that have that first beer or first joint end up addicted. If you have addictive behavior, then you may become addicted to addictive things.

    Federal drug laws violate the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, unless you're willing to use the commerce clause to have the feds circumvent the Bill of Rights on all matters.

    There is no logical reason to prohibit marijuana, ESPECIALLY on the federal level. State governments should be free to make this decision on their own, but it is absurd to prohibit a seemingly benign substance.

    You know when I was still in the Navy the Chiefs on the ship I was on took a trip over to the Fort Tripler Army hospital..........we visited a ward called the LL ward.........The patients were all drug addicts probably like some of you dopers are.......In one section there was a bunch of kid addicts.......Most of them were so spaced out they did not even know where they were. Some had not even spoken the whole time they were there....The majority of them started on grass and graduated to hard stuff.......It really got my attention and I will never forget it........Put that poison in your body if you like but be prepared for the consequences.......
