    Should marijuana be legalized for recreational purposes

    This is of course, assuming these restrictions were in place:
    - a strictly enforced age limit
    - a ban on public usage
    - a ban on operating machinery while under the influence
    - and a ban on social services to those who produced positive urine tests.

    Thanks

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Should a substance that is less addictive than caffeine and which may have genuine benefits to our pharmaceutical and energy infrastructure be made legal?

    Hm...that is a tough one.

    It should be legal. The Fed Gov should stay out of it. Each state should set the regulations on it. Marijuana is better for you than alcohol.

    I'm all for those except the last. I don't think we should do drug testing for those who get social services.

    I agree. Just because they test positive doesn't mean they bought it.

    They shouldn't test for marijuana but they should do testing for heroin and crack.

    No it shouldn't be legalized for consumption.

    Re: Should marijuana be legalized for recreational purposes

    I believe it should not be legalized for recreational purposes either. It's a schedule 1 drug for a reason. I don't buy the propaganda of "it's natural, non toxic, and herb maaan." It's a mind altering substance that should be kept illegal. We don't need more cancerous and mild altering drugs.

    Re: Should marijuana be legalized for recreational purposes

    Marijuana should be legal but not for any of the reasons mentioned above. The only reason why Marijuana and almost everything else should be legal is because the illegality of Marijuana and almost everything else imposes the state on it's subjects, erodes the sovereignty of the individual and erodes the free market. The reasons above suggest that if other goods do not meet the supposed criteria that Marijuana does that it should be illegal too. This is the message conveyed even though you had no intention of showing that.
