it probably make it a little cheaper, but we dont have to worry about that..they cant figure out how to tax it, and then, there's no way to keep it from going further with cocaine, or ecstacy.    :wave:

For all the non-believers:

(1) Cannabis is not as addictive as alcohol, tobacco or certainly "harder" drugs like cocaine and heroin; (2) Marijuana is much less physically debilitating than "harder" drugs, as well as many legally-prescribed synthetic painkillers; (3) Deaths from a marijuana overdose are extraordinarily rare; and (4) There's a significant and growing amount of evidence that cannabis helps relieve symptoms of many serious medical conditions -- including cancer, glaucoma, and AIDS -- and can be a better alternative to narcotic painkillers.

heck no.....start with that, then whats next, cocaine? :dontknow:
NO nothing is next. You think people are gonna say okay now we gotta legalize much worse substances as well just because we legalized weed???

Marijuana is unlike ANY of the other drugs, its a plant that you take straight from the ground, dont add any chemicals too, you cant overdose on it, you dont get truely depended on it, you dont black out on it, ect ect. Alcohol is legal and you cant say any of those things about it! Heck even cigarettes have chemicals and are extremely addictive, and you actually can overdose from nicotine.

And besides, those who smoke weed, are going to smoke it wether its legal or not, why not make billion of tax dollars on it, rather then spend billions of tax dollars to combat it???

 8) Yes yes and yes.  I am in the older generation but regardless, I believe God created all living plants and I think its a natural substance that helps a lot of people.  I don't get it, booze legal, weed not.  Go figure.  I am all for it and think its a waste of tax payer money to go after folks who smoke and a waste of prison space when they have bad people out of on the loose.  So theres my 2 cents.   :thumbsup:  :peace:  ;D

Are you serious LOL. Cocaine is completely the opposite of Marijuana lol. Marijuana is not a gateway drug that is just something that have never done it say. I don't even smoke pot, I have once or twice in my highschool years, but I don't smoke now, it makes me sleepy and lazy and I don't like that feeling. But there is nothing wrong with it. It needs to be legalized. And I don't see it not being fun any more if it's legalized. I would think you would enjoy doing it more if you didn't have to look behind your shoulder every time you bought a bag. Or worry about goin to jail if you got pulled over with it. I think the government wastes tooo much money on fighting this battle. If we legalized it here, we could grow our own and not get it from other countries.

Why don't you vote for Ron Paul if you want to legalize pot? He is the only candidate that cares about personal liberties. This has been going on for years and yet you don't vote for him. Why?

Yes it should be legal to 18yrs or older, its been show in other country to actually lower the underage use of it for one and keep the crime rate down. Which brings me to another point it wouldnt just make the government money from taxing it, it also brings down money spent in the justice system on charge and trying to convict a person for a possession charge, which the dont make enough after most states just fine you 200-400 dollars and cost more then that with the time spent with court or even if you are sentence to jail on it, it still cost the people tax money to house a person in jail for it.. So its a win win for everyone and everything. you bring down the crime rate you make money on taxes and you lower the money spent to convict.. And about the cocaine thing no it wouldnt be next and it happens to be used in an aesthetic it a certain surgery. And Roxicodone,oxycotin, and other pills  happens to be okay thou more people are OD on that now and it medically legal!

I totally agree with the "booze legal, weed not" comment here.  It's a proven fact that alcohol (also a "drug", by the way) is responsible for more deaths than marijuana ever has been or will be.  Drunk drivers kill thousands of people every year (how many times do you hear about a stoned driver killing anyone? LOL) and folks dying from alcohol poisoning... and yet we continue to allow it.  I'm a fan of legalization for a number of reasons, medicinal and recreational among them.  I don't smoke, because of my job -- but if it were legal, I would upon occasion.  I also agree that continuing to fight the "war on drugs" over something so benign is a ridiculous waste of money and manpower.  I also find it humorous that we allow all sorts of hemp-based products on the market, but not the smokeable kind!  It's okay to grow it for some things, apparently.....  LOL

8) Yes yes and yes.  I am in the older generation but regardless, I believe God created all living plants and I think its a natural substance that helps a lot of people.  I don't get it, booze legal, weed not.  Go figure.  I am all for it and think its a waste of tax payer money to go after folks who smoke and a waste of prison space when they have bad people out of on the loose.  So theres my 2 cents.   :thumbsup:  :peace:  ;D

Weed should be legal. It's no worse than alcohol and it it's a God given plant. God put it here for a reason. It's a known fact cannabis oil has healing properties and known to destroy certain cancer cells. It's rumored the Christ Jesus used the oil in His healings.

George Washington grew it. Back then it was a law farmers had to grow it. It's not legal cause there's no way it can be patented.  :thumbsup:  :fish:

Ron Paul is against gay marriage. Isn't the ability to marry someone you love regardless of gender a "personal liberty"?

No.  Once a society starts sliding down the proverbial slippery slope there's no stopping.

It should be made legal and taxed like alcohol. and the taxes should be used for education.

This is how i feel about it also. they could make it so you have to be a certain age to buy it. Like 18 or 21 and have basically the same rules as alcohol.
