    just for the record navy, i have never smoked weed...with that being said, if you are worried about taxes, i would think you would be all for legalizing it, as your tax money, my tax money, is spent to jail alot of people whose only crime is smoking weed...why should our tax money be going to lock these people up? you conservatives/republicans always screaming taxes are way to high, well hells bells, here is a way to save the taxpayer alot of money!!! legalize it, and tax the snot out of it, like we do alcohol and cigs!!!

If I have a right to use and abuse alcohol, what gives you jurisdiction to throw me in prison for using a substance that is, by any rational measure (and as a scientist, you should know this) magnitudes less harmful than alcohol or tobacco?

    My reasoning is that drugs like oxycodone, morphine, and others are tightly controlled under the law due to their effects (highs) and abuses (using the medication for a high and not fore treatment). Marijuana is a schedule I drug, which makes it illegal.
    One of the absolute worst manifestations of marijuana prohibitions (on par with elevating criminal punishments for crack vs. powder cocaine)

    Oxycodone and others listed are schedule II which means they are legal but tightly controlled. By your logic should people have the right to pick up any schedule II drug and use it for any purpose?
    So long as they, themselves pay for it and pay for all consequences (medical emergencies, addiction, etc.) associated with its use.

    What about all medications that are legal only with a prescription? Just because you tack on the word "right" to something really doesn't make it your protected right.
    Read the Tenth Amendment and get back to me on that one. If you wish to control marijuana on a federal level, you may petition your representatives to propose an amendment to the constitution. Until then, it is a violation of our Bill of Rights.

    Yes, you're talking like it's 1942 and no one knew anything about marijuana and not like it's 2012...do some research that was done recently and I think you'll be surprised...

    for example...

    "People who smoke marijuana for recreational or medical purposes might now breathe easier. Scientists report in the Jan. 11 Journal of the American Medical Association that occasional cannabis users donít experience any loss of lung function.

    In a 20-year study that included lung tests and a specific accounting of marijuana use, scientists also found that people who smoke more than 20 times a month and accumulate many years of use might have a slight drop in lung capacity over time. But the researchers are unsure of that finding since it was based on scant data."
