I agree it should not be illegal, I don't think it is as harmless as some believe,but it is no more so than alchhol and ciggerettes. I believe that public intoxication should still be against the law, it should be left at home or certain social gatherings

Being a big Ron Paul supporter, I do think that it should be legal. You should have the freedom to do what you wish as long as it doesn't hurt/kill anyone else or damage anybody's property. If you do, then there are consequences for that. Think of all the money we're wasting for jailing people for just having weed on their person, it's ridiculous. What's going on in Mexico and the border with the cartels is the same thing that happened in the 20's with prohibition that gave rise to guys like Al Capone and the other mobs. Didn't we learn anything from that? The whole concept that the gov't can legislate morality is just a farce. The thing with freedom is that it makes people responsible for their own actions. Just because something would be made legal doesn't mean that everyone and their dog would be stoned the next day. Regulate it, tax it and go on to bigger and better things.

Legalize it, subject it to the same regulations as alcohol and tobacco, and tax the hell out of it. Goodbye cartels, grow houses, wasted law enforcement time, and wasted jail space.

Yes, it should be legalized.  Alcohol is much worse, imo, and it's perfectly okay for someone to go to the store and buy that.  Makes absolutely no sense to me.  This coming from someone who's never done the stuff and never even been drunk...and I'm 35 years old.

Most people against it being legal use the "Well, if it were legal then everyone would be high". Last I checked, Alchohol and tobacco are legal, but I don't see everyone and their dog drunk and with a cigarette in their mouth.

So true, Kords.  Not only that, what's it to somebody if someone wants to sit in their house baked all day?  People need to start worrying about themselves and stop trying to dictate how other people should live.

I agree bvance. What people do in their own home is their business. As a nation we spend way too much money on this "war on drugs" that only serves to enrich the CIA and other shady organizations. All it has done is empower the cartels and ruin people's lives by putting them in prison for trivial reasons. Live your life and let others do their thing. If someone high on drugs causes harm to someone else in some fashion, there are consequnces for that. I just think the gov't needs to get out of people's lives and stop trying to run it. Last I checked the gov't had racked up enormous debt, is that an entity that you want running your life? Not me.

my question to all who respond, Should canabus be legal in all 50 states or not. Let me know!!!!
[I've heard a lot about how it can be helpful in certain medical instances so, I'll try not to judge but for uses other than that I think it should be treated like alcohol taxed and controlled and licensed. >:(/quote]

Some state have legalized "medical" marijuana. However, the feds have gone in and raided businesses legally selling in those states claiming it violated federal drugs laws. Arizona has recently passed a similar law for the second time. The Governor has filed a suit asking the federal courts, to rule on whether the actions of the Federal Gov't is legal. She has suspended the application process for stores to get the license, as she fears the Fed will also go after state employees for conspiracy, as they have threaten.

As me for I would be in favor of legalizing it with the same tax and regulations we have for tobacco and DUI alcohol laws.

I was lying in bed the other night, looking up at the stars, and thinking, "Where in the heck is my roof?"

Any form of substance whose use can harm people who are nearby and not actively using should be banned. This includes tobacco. Why do people spend money on perfume and cologne and then stick one of those stinking things in thier mouth? Disgusting!

Legal, taxed, and controlled by existing alcohol and smoking regulations. Oh, and you'd better not smoke that stuff anywhere near me.

LEGALIZE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
All other areas of the world don't worry this much about plants, why should we!!! Not to mention if it go gov. regulation our country would make zillions and not to mention, there would be less crime. People don't commit serious crimes while stoked. There will probably be some snack thieves :thumbsup:

The world would be a better place if we all toked a bit!!!!!!!!!!!!

With that said, I am not a pot head, I have a wonderful successful life with a career, husband, child, house and all the fixens. I only partake in this act on an occasional basis, mostly weekends.
