    It depends on how much the authorities enforce the ban.

    So which will it be?

    Legal like cigarettes? Or legal like Booze?
    Let the states decide for themselves.

    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.
    Then water should be made illegal. Here are some facts about this dangerous substance.

    Ideally speaking, what would it accomplish?

    Higher prison populations? Larger, more intrusive government? Those are the only things I can think of...

    You could make the same argument about enforcing any law.
    What it would accomplish is less cannabis on the streets if the law was enforced strongly enough.

    And that would be worth the increase in prison populations and government intrusiveness?

    Throwing non-violent drug users into PRISON is something you find acceptable?

    If we are going to allow cannabis to be legalised then it would be more sensible to have pot which is less dangerous.
    If someone wants to get wasted on alchohol or pot then there is not much we can do to stop them.
    low THC marijuana is arguably MORE dangerous in that you have to smoke more of it to get the same effect.

    Which is worse: someone drinking 120 ounces of beer, or someone drinking 15 ounces of Scotch, which is 8 times as concentrated???

    This is like saying an 800 mg motrin is more dangerous than a 400 mg. - If I take (2) 400 mgs, or if I take (1) 800 mg motrin, to get the exact same effect, they are equally as dangerous.

    Of course if you want to play the "high THC content is so much more dangerous" game, then why is there a prescription 100% THC pill available that is touted as a "safer" alternative?

    If 20% THC is so much more dangerous than 5% THC, than 100% THC has to be MUCH MUCH more dangerous than 20%.

    your reasoning is FATALLY flawed. Concentration changes dosage.


    Absinthe not only has a high alchohol content but also contains wormwood which has the same effect as thc so my argument stands.
    has the same effect as THC? it interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the brain and causes the same intoxication??

    the effects of absinth are a result of the drug Thujone, which has its own specific effects, it is nothing like a cannabinoid.

    your argument stands as well as a two legged stool.

    How is that vague? The states will create their own regulatory framework. Seems pretty clear to me.

    Without more specifics being linked to the poll question,... I can't vote.

    In reference to the poll question,... are we to consider pot being 'legal' like cigarettes? Or like booze?

    They are two completely different vices.

    Think open containers, second hand smoke, public buildings, operating machinery, driving school busses,. etc.

    Would it be legal to drive and smoke pot if pot were to be made legal?

    The poll question is too vague for me,...

    that's all.
