    Should Marijuana be legalized?

    Simple but controversial question. It's a well know fact that it is less dangerous than Tobacco and Alcohol yet we imprison almost 1 million people every year for simple possession. The government spends billions every year fighting Marijuana yet it just proves to be futile. It is also considered medically useful for over 200 diseases and illnesses.

    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!

    the unprompted hyperbole about the opposition does not help the case, nor is it a good set up for what if any potential this thread/poll may have... although they usually all usually end up covering the same ground and the same pattern.

    Otherwise I am on your side, as evidenced by my signature.

    It should be legalized, but only under strict regulatory controls.

    the opposition was meant as a joke but all the things I stated were things the opponents of Marijuana legalization have used or still use as propganda against it.

    I don't consider marijuana to be less dangerous than tobacco and alcohol. Just not worse than either. Whether or not marijuana takes away all motivation and turns you into a pacifist, stoners are still lazy imbeciles and they'll continue to be lampooned as such in movies even to the point of glamorization as if it's ok and it's right to be an idiot pothead loser. Something else that pisses me off is all of this bob marley crap and the pipes and bongs and such always have to have some stupid trippy design on them and there's always some idiot wearing a marijuana leaf like it's the cross or something. I hate the sight of that leaf symbol because whenever I see it I conjure up images of a legion of morons doing cartwheels, going bananas, hooting and hollering at the mere mention of 420. Very annoying lot. They want everyone to mellow and be laid back and cool but whenever they see some kind of marijuana symbol they spin around like the tazmanian devil, in a fit of pandemonium excitement. Pathetic. These bozos have helped me grow an appreciation for the massive drunken hordes who get all stoked about going to the bar for some almighty beer.

    Regardless, I am all in favor of decriminalizing it and should it be sold I don't think there should be an unreasonable tax applied to it.

    Of course it should.

    I see no difference between alcohol and marijuana. There is no reason to ban marijuana unless alcohol is going to banned too

    I got the joke, although my doubts are for others who may not, this especially holds for the second sentence. the crazy black, men raping white women - while real hysteria at one time - is about 80 years dated, the rest is still fresh and reflects others beliefs.. no sense pre-screening them and closing their minds off to reasonable debate prematurely. Take my criticism with a grain of salt, I have just seen too many threads that started out hyperbolic that have crashed and burned and that have done more harm than good.

    So I am a lazy imbecile? Wow...you'd be surpised at the sheer amount of intelligent people who have admitted to smoking Marijuana or still do.



    maybe this will make you reconsider.

    Re: Should Marijuana be legalized?

    Other then being a substitute for opiates, I see no good in legalization. There simply are not enough people in this country who value personal reliance that could use it responsibly. Simply put, my desire for self preservation is greater then my desire for legalization.

    but health wise a daily Marijuana user is much better off than a daily user of Alcohol or Tobacco, shouldn't you give people the choice of a safer alternative. And why should government have the right to tell me what I can and can't smoke?
