    They have required drug testing for welfare before and they found that not many welfare recipients were actually doing drugs.

    I just want to make sure on this.. you are for including alcohol in these sentiments as well right? I see no substantial reason why alcohol should get an exemption while other drugs do not if we go down this road.

    Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    The real reason why pot was outlawed in the first place, in the words of the person behind it, Harry J. Anslinger


    "There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US,
    and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers.
    Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage.
    This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations
    with Negroes, entertainers and any others."

    How about the money it would cost to treat dopers that are hooked who started with grass or dopers who got behind the wheel and injured all the passengers in both cars in and accident? I haven't had and accident since 1964 but if dope was made legal I think I might give up my license......Its bad enough to drive on the road with the alkys but then you add crazed dopers......I pass.......

    I am a very casual drinker.........If alcohol was illegal I would quit drinking just like I did smoking in 1966 when the surgeon general came out with his report that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer.........

    Florida requires a drug test to get welfare now and when they instituted it the welfare rolls were cut in half........

    When you grow older have a family you might be more Conservative...I was not a liberal but I did vote for JFK in 1960 and as I acquired better morals and being married family values my thinking changed.
