Absolutely yes.  Its the best natural gift on the planet; If more people smoked weed, the world would be a much nicer place.  Then there's the ecofriendly hemp products, its wonderful, natural medicinal uses and how if legalized our country would have a fairly quick and rather large contribution to national debt.  And the jobs created in and around the entire product, from farming to manufacturing to small business shops.  :thumbsup: :peace: :heart:

I just had to jump in with another comment here, and APPLAUD Floorlady for a great post.  Thank you for being intelligent, open-minded, and articulate!   :peace:

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?

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

Thats a little different. You could take what you said and make the argument " well then isnt it a personal liberty to allow marrage to someone you love regardless of any discrimination? So you'd be okay with a brother and sister getting married? What about a Mother and Son, or Father and son? or Father and Daughter or Aunt and Nephew? How about 3 people or 4 people all being married together at the same time? Or 1 man having 6 wives? ect ect. , by what you said that would also be a personal liberty."

Im not actualy making that argument, just saying when talking about personal libertys and marrage between 2 partys (or more!) its not the same as an individual partaking in a medicinal substance that legitamitly sooths the pain, or even a recreational use.
You cant compare them, thats like saying someone is for legalizing the sale of liquor on sundays and no time limit to buy alcohol but they are against abortion.. 2 completely different things.

I would just like to jump in here about Ron Paul. Although his personal opinion is against gay marriage he believes the federal government should have no part in deciding who gets married. He believes the states should decide for themselves whether or not it should be legal. Unlike many politicians he does not try to impose his personal spirituality on the entire country. If you and your state say gay marriage should be legal then the federal government should not overturn this but instead have no part in it whatsoever. This is constitutional. He feels the same way bout so-called drugs like marijuana. He doesn't advocate its use, but instead merely feels the government should not be fighting a senseless, expensive, and deadly drug war when it does nothing to stop people from using it. 
For the record I am pro gay rights, I am heterosexual and in no way feel two people of the same sex getting married in any way affects my life, just as my marriage does not affect theirs. We should all be free to live and do what makes us happy, those are our personal liberties and that is what Ron Paul protects.
Thank you Jennjontry. I think our country would be a better place if people had a more open-minded attitude, and realize there is no use in policing each other all the time.

I don't really care if it is legal or not.  I just find it hard to believe Alcohal is legal.  It's far much worse than weed, in all aspects.    :peace:

I am not sure, I know how much it relived my mom, who passed away with cancer. Thanks to some one for getting for me. As for myself have not ever tried it. But if someone is in great pain and it is they only thing too ease it then yes. But for fun no.

No I dont want that, then again I also dont want the school bus driver picking up kids just after he drank alcohol, or took his prescription pills, yet alcohol and prescription pills are already legal and they impair driving ability much worse.
If weed was legalized it would still be illegal to be on it while driving just like alcohol or prescription drugs.

In my opinion most people who think marijuana should not be legalized must also believe that alcohol and prescribtion drugs should also be outlawed, OR your just a hypocrite since alcohol and prescription drugs have all the same negatives to a worse degree then marijuana.

Marijuana as a medicine has less harmful side affects then most if not all prescirption pills
Marijuana as a recreational use has less harmful side affects and impairment then alcohol - not to mention does not lead to any were even close to the number of car accidents and deaths

I think it should be legal with the same or similar restrictions that alcohol has - an age limit, no driving on it, no being wasted on it in public, ect ect OR at the very least medicinaly legal and enforced the same way as prescription pills are

I think if it was legal, it would be safer, less expensive, and better quality.  DUI includes under the influence of any drug, not just alcohol, so the current laws would still apply.  Besides, I bet there would be plenty of jobs created by allowing fancy pipes and bongs in homes.

I'd vote yes, because, its natural, theres not worse than smoking a cigarette, and at the same time, reduces revenue to drug cartels. Maybe the us can start exporting weed?

I'm so sorry about your mother Vickysue. Losing a loved one is tough, but you saw that marijuana was useful to her. There are plenty of examples of individuals using this herb to help them through their pain and being prosecuted or harassed by government officials for using it. I just think it is foolish to keep going after these people who are using it as medication. As far as recreational use goes I do not see how it is different than cigarettes or alcohol.

I don't care if you smoke weeds. My garden is full of them. Come knock yourself out.
I was lying in bed the other night, looking up at the stars, and thinking, "Where in the heck is my roof?"

The truth of it all is that legal or not legal, the people that use it will not stop doing it. I personally dont use it but respect everyone that does. To me its a Whatever, its still gonna be there  :peace:

I think it's a slippery slope and can be a gateway drug for so many people.  I have many addicts in my family and have watched them struggle with drugs, nicotene, and alcohol.  Just one more thing to say it's ok, but can have serious consequences.  I would vote no.

I smoked it when I was younger, many years ago.   8) I found after a while I was always spacey (spelling?)   :dontknow: and didn't really have to drive to do things much.  I quit fairly easily, and it took weeks to get rid of the haziness in my thoughts, but I could tell a difference quickly.   :wave:
 Now the things that keep me from achieving and keep me spaced out feeling, sense of defeat, etc...   :BangHead: all relate to politics and the greed of corporations controlling our governments actions.  Dang, I think I felt the same way back when I was stoned.  :icon_rr: I guess things haven't changed much over the years.

I think they should make weed legal, a lot of people would quit using it and they should tax it

yes, if weed is illegal then smoking regular cigarettes and drinking alcohol should be illegal as well. Both of those are more dangerous for you than smoking weed.
