    Honestly, the government can tell me what they want, but if I am not violating another individuals liberties, then I don't care. Be smart about smoking and you will never have a problem with the law.

    ok, I understand but If people are going to do it and it doesn't violate others individual liberties then why not just legalize it?

    Wow...you'd be surpised at the sheer amount of intelligent people who have admitted to smoking Marijuana or still do.
    No, I would not be surprised and it's very likely that I still wouldn't value them for other reasons.



    maybe this will make you reconsider.
    What's the point of having me reconsider if I'm not into the vilification of marijuana?

    Because people deserve a ticket if they do something stupid and get caught. Plus. I see no purpose for pot to be outside the home unless you are driving to pick it up from your dude and go home. Also, there are a lot more important things to worry about right now.

    Why should we continue to allow a black market and its propensity to be mired in violence to be in control of distribution? next to no harm in the users activities, yet immense harm via the distribution methods.

    you said every pothead was a lazy imbecile and that you didn't consider Marijuana less dangerous than tobacco.

    If you don't giggle at 420 references/occurances and if you don't buy framed pictures of that Bob Marley jackass and if you don't do any of that other lame/stupid pothead crap, then you're just someone who smokes marijuana and there's no reason to label you as pothead since that's like saying coke junkie or alcoholic or something.

    you --don't-- consider Marijuana less dangerous than tobacco.
    Is there an echo in here?

    Re: Should Marijuana be legalized?

    if marijuana is legalised, it needs to be highly regulated, there should be laws against smoking it in public, and driving while under its effects, selling to minors etc.

    i'd prefer if it wasn't legalised, but it appears to be inevitable.

    Now see, you are touching on a few of the reasons I am for legalization. With legalization comes the ability to regulate, control, and establish barriers to hinder accessibility to minors that are currently non existent.

    I agree with all that you have stipulated, the one tricky part is a reliable test to show active THC as opposed to derivative metabolites that can linger in the bloodstream for weeks for the DUI aspect of it.

    Ok my intro is somewhat biased

    to counter my point

    Marijuana makes black people go crazy and rape white women. It also kills brain cells and takes away all motivation and turns you into a pacifist!
    All recreational drugs should be legalized and regulated.
