Why not?  Although it should be sold in stores just like alcohol, then it will get taxed and help our debt. problem if only by a little.  I must say though that I was surprised when I heard it had passed in Co. and WA., especially when people have been trying to get medicinal marijuana passed for years.   :peace:

I see nothing wrong with the legalization of marijuana.  You want to smoke pot, go right ahead.  HOWEVER... be prepared - your stash will be of a lower quality, have unwanted chemicals, will cost you more, and will be taxed, taxed, taxed.  You can also expect LOTS of others to be "complaining" about YOUR personal habits.  Pot smokers will now be the new and improved cigarette smokers.  Lotsa luck with that.

I have no problem with it. I am however allergic to it. For some reason it triggers lupus flare for me. And we thought it might help with pain lol! No such luck for me !

I personally don't have a problem with it!! I personally don't use it because of allegies to it. I tried it in my younger years and I did not have a good reaction to it! I would not count on it staying legal, federal law "always" trumps state law. And there has already been talk in Fed areas that the states that just passed the law will not be able to be enforced! Who knows - I guess the next few months will tell. It still remains a federal crime to possess or use Marijuana.

The only reason that it is legal in California is that it has a medical reasoning behind the law in cal. The new one's that passed on election ballots is for recreational use.

Why not, its up to the person using it how to control him/herself, just remember always that too much is bad for the body.

It didn't pass in Oregon...bummer.  But we do have medical marijuana...I live in the country and when you look on google maps nearly every other house is growing.  We're on the right track.  It should be legalized and taxed.  Smoking marijuana has been around since the indians...and probably before...and will be around for as long as there is earth.

YAY to the states that legalized pot! Imagine if everyone smoked......this world would be such a happy, laid back place where there would be no talk or action of war, terrorism and such like.  ;D

i think it's absurd that small substance crimes (marijuana)
are a contributing factor to prisons being overrun.

legalize it, tax it if you must, and let everyone be happy  :icon_rr:

I wrote a very extensive and researched post on another thread in this forum criticizing the criminalization of marijuana. Hardly anyone commented any substantial counter argument, which leads me to conclude that the general census (at least on this forum) is that we should legalize marijuana. The main problem is that the people creating the laws (like they so frequently do) just shut their ears and pretend to not hear anyone but themselves or their special interest.
