    Most people I know who have criminal records have them for one of only two reasons:

    1. Drunk Driving
    2. Marijuana possession

    It would be nice to rid the nation of reason number two.

    When they develop a test for marijuana that works at the roadside, like they do for alcohol, I will support legalization. But I want to know if the guy who hits and kills that person in the crosswalk is high or not, just like I would want to know if he/she were over the alcohol limit; .08

    It should be treated like booze, including allowing people to grow their own.

    Practice makes perfect for marijuana users. Alcohol can render a person unconscious.

    Either we legalize pot or we put the same restrictions on liquor. I remember the days when having pot on you would send you to prison while at the same time, people were getting boozed up, driving cars and killing people.
    I feel so much better now since I've completely given up all hope.

    Get high all you want. Just stay in your mother's basement where you won't hurt anyone while driving.

    I agree with half of it. It should be legalized, however, each conviction should be evaluated separately. There are people in prison for trafficking large amounts of marijuana. That isn't the same as a pot head. Some convictions are more about the action than the product. The act of trafficking and bringing illegal substances into our streets is wrong and should not be overturned.

    Possession related charges I'd have no problem with.
    I reply to almost every post. If I don't reply it is because our conversation reached a conclusion or because you are on ignore and I don't consider you worth talking to.
