ME!!!
i'll compare my father to willie nelson because they share the same views - they love their pot and don't give a damn what society thinks!. i grew up seeing it and so i never knew it was BAD. my father has never been arrested, always worked and now is retired and living off some nice and hefty investments so, pot did not stunt his abilities to live a sucessful life.  having said that, i never even liked pot until i was in my mid 20's. so, i'll never see it or compare it to those  "real" drugs. People can smoke pot and not become one of those stereotypical druggies. Many people smoke from all walks of life, you're not going to spiral down by smoking!

I believe pot should be legalized and would financially help this nation get back on it's feet with the taxes it could charge.

i don't think that there is anything wrong with pot. just as long as you don't do something you will regret after you smoke it ;D

I think pot is innocent and wouldn't consider it a drug.It's natural and from the earth.I
I do agree that alcohol,crack,meth,etc. would be considered drugs.
Drugs are man made.....Pot is a plant that grows and if you should so happen set it on fire,there could be some side affects....lol
I say yes to legalizing it!!!Consider it Natural Herbal Therapy.

i definitely think it's innocent.
look at drinking.. how many accidents are caused due to drunk driving and just plain stupidness from alcohol intoxication. now look at how many accidents are caused by pot.. can you tell me much about those? no, you really can't. because you really don't hear about things like that. marijuana is less harmful to lungs than cigarettes, which are completely legal. cigarettes kill thousands of people every year. can you say that pot alone can do the same thing? no, you really can't. plus, look at the medicinal benefits of pot.

i really see nothing wrong with it.

Personally, I think it's better than coke, meth, etc.  BUT that depends on who uses it.  I have a girlfriend who pays her bills first, puts some cash in her savings account, than buys her pot.  She only smokes on Fridays and Saturdays so it doesn't interfere with work.  On the other side of the fence I have a guy friend who smokes all day, every day.  He's 28 YO, works at a pizza joint delivering pizzas, and sells his weed.  He doesn't make any money off selling it, though, because he only sells to friends and feels bad about charging them.  He has no goals for his life and has no money.  I think it just depends on if you let it control your life or use it as a pleasurable past time.  

Although, I have to disagree with some of you.  I wouldn't want a person who's high driving anymore than a person who's drunk.  They aren't any better drivers, both impair your abilities and perceptions.  I don't want to take any chances while my kids are in the car.  You do hear about it but most people hear "driving under the influence" and automatically think alcohol.

I do agree that if they taxed it, it could bring some much need financial help.

BTW, if you look at medical data weed isn't any better for your body or brain in the long term than any other drug.

I guess I'm on the fence.  There would definitely have to be some laws.

I'm not for the whole drug scene; but I have to agree: why is it illegal to smoke something that grows naturally, yet spend billions to find a way to give eighty year old men erections?
I think its from a song or something.

I feel the punishment for pot makes it dangerous to have. I also think the criminalization creates a bigger problem as people get involved with drug dealers to get pot which i think makes it a gateway drug.

It'd be nice if people stopped saying "it's okay cause it's natural."  That's wonderful.  A lot of things are natural, and they're terrible for you.  Anthrax is natural, poison ivy is natural, lions are natural but I wouldn't fight one, etc.

I'm 100% supportive of legalization of marijuana and it's only illegal due to cotton growers/pharmaceutical companies lobbying against it and marijuana, but the argument that it's natural is one of the worst in this debate.

I feel the punishment for pot makes it dangerous to have. I also think the criminalization creates a bigger problem as people get involved with drug dealers to get pot which i think makes it a gateway drug.

Numerous studies have shown that it's not a gateway drug and that the gateway drug theory isn't all that reliable.  Of course, a number of other studies have said the opposite.  Suppose it's not going to be agreed upon any time soon.

Personally, I think it's better than coke, meth, etc.  BUT that depends on who uses it.  I have a girlfriend who pays her bills first, puts some cash in her savings account, than buys her pot.  She only smokes on Fridays and Saturdays so it doesn't interfere with work.  On the other side of the fence I have a guy friend who smokes all day, every day.  He's 28 YO, works at a pizza joint delivering pizzas, and sells his weed.  He doesn't make any money off selling it, though, because he only sells to friends and feels bad about charging them.  He has no goals for his life and has no money.  I think it just depends on if you let it control your life or use it as a pleasurable past time.

BTW, if you look at medical data weed isn't any better for your body or brain in the long term than any other drug.

I guess I'm on the fence.  There would definitely have to be some laws.

Perhaps the guy with "no goals" (perhaps your definition of goals/success is different than his?) was going to be that way anyway.  Maybe he didn't care, because he simply wasn't a motivated person and his personality or upbringing did not promote doing anything higher than delivering pizzas.  Maybe he was attracted to weed because he was already content with his life and didn't care to be a "success" by society's standards?  It's certainly possible he has "no goals" and isn't really that ambitious because of the weed, but it's probably more likely that he had "no goals" and wasn't that ambitious of a person prior to his smoking.

There are no medical data or medical studies done on marijuana in the long term.  That's what makes the discussion somewhat difficult as there is nothing to really base a stance on from the perspective of health.  People want to say it's bad for you or that it's not harmful at all even in the long run, but those are both fairly baseless statements considering the research into the long term effects of marijuana is basically nonexistent.

what would you do with free bud? sell it? smoke it? call police?

honestly you know how much money the US would make if they legallized that stuff?  We'd be debt free in like 5yrs.

I could go on & on about this subject, but suffice to say that it should definately be legalized.


Way safer than alcohol, and even safer & better then many prescription drugs.

The reason it is not legalized now is because of the big "pill pushers" (Glaxo, Phizer, etc). Their lobbyists in Washington are the most anti-legalization proponents, and for obvious reasons.

About 80% of Americans think it should be decriminalized or legalized altogether, yet is not even close. Why do you think that is?
It's amazing that the will of the people in this country is not even recieving an open ear. If they were, it would have been legalized years ago.
