I think right now its is too broad of a step to try to legalize marijuana for recreational use.  However, I don't see any reason why every state has not legalized marijuana for medicinal use.

I think right now its is too broad of a step to try to legalize marijuana for recreational use.  However, I don't see any reason why every state has not legalized marijuana for medicinal use. 

Why is it a broad step? So because the government has failed to use science and reasoning to make adequate changes to laws that where originally created because of racism, we should not legalize marijuana for personal use even though there is no evidence at all (None, not a bit, nada, zip, not a single shred) that is can not only cause someone to cause harm to others but also case harm to one self (which is a completely illogical reason to make something illegal)?

There are countless drugs with similar effects that marijuana induces that is perfectly and completely legal. Alcohol, Caffeine, and tobacco are proven to cause harm to one's self and yet they are legal. Alcohol is proven (in sufficient quantities) that it can cause someone to harm someone else, and yet they are legal. Our laws not only need conciseness, they have to make logical sense. What logical sense is there to make marijuana illegal? That it makes people calmer, happier, with less pain, and cannot under any circumstance cause and overdose?

It is not to broad a step to legalize marijuana. It was already a broad step to make it illegal, and its a broad step to continue making it illegal considering the overwhelming numbers of victimless crimes being committed and perfectly healthy non-violent people are being thrown in jail. What do putting these people in prison accomplish? Do you think once they're out they'll stop using marijuana and become perfectly happy civilians? More than likely they'll either continue to use pot (there fore wasting tax payer money, people's time, and taking away 6 months to many years of a non-violent human being) or being in jail made them more susceptible to violent tendencies.

Its time to end this madness, and that time is now.

HMMMMM, interesting question. It wouldnt bother me although I dont use it. I know some people who do and seem to function better with marijuana then alcohol. Our state just turned into a no smoking state so it would be interesting how they would handle that.

So....thoughts on it being legalized?
Its about time this country followed the footsteps of other countries around the world, including Canada and the Netherlands.

Singers smoke it
And players of instrument too
Legalize it, yeah, yeah
That's the best thing you can do
Doctors smoke it
Nurses smoke it
Judges smoke it
Even the lawyer too

So you've got to legalize it
And don't criticize it
Legalize it, yeah, yeah
And I will advertise it

~ Bob Marley

I do agree  :thumbsup:

I think now that it's legal people aren't gonna want to try it nearly as much and it's gonna be taxed so much that people are still gonna sell it illegally

The war on drugs costs us a lot of money with few results. Our jails are way overcrowded we should only worry about serious offenders.

I always say the same thing when ever I am asked this question.  You can debate it all day long till you're blue in
the face but one thing stands.  Would you want your 1st grader, your child, your lil sister or brother or niece or nephew
to get on the school bus when the driver has just gotten high?   :-

I have absolutely no problem with it being legal; however, I completely, totally and utterly dislike the smell, one of the reasons I stay away from it and avoid being around people who use it. On the other hand, if there is, or there will ever be, an odorless kind, I'd be fine with people using it around me. It still wouldn't be for me, though. I just don't have any reasons whatsoever to use it, no pain, no sleeping problems, no unmanageable stress. Furthermore, I hate the effect it causes on me, it makes me dull, uncoordinated, clumsy, I feel stupid and tired, symptoms I don't need in my life.

Additionally, I think most of users aren't honest with themselves and everybody else, they just find these "reasons" to justify the use, when in reality, it's just an excuse, probably because they are embarrassed to admit they are addicted. If it truly was recreational, they wouldn't be looking to do it, the sooner they have the opportunity. I don't have a problem with the addiction, or the use or the user, just be honest and tell me you use it because you want to and you like it, and if you really are addicted, don't tell me it's recreational. I appreciate honesty. Having said all that, I have no objection to legalization, except perhaps, eliminating the smell out of it? lol  :wave:

i don't see why it cant be legalized all the way except the government wants money off of it.  it does way less damage than alcohol and thats legal.

Rumor has it if it is legalized it will actually go down in use because those who think it's "cool" will have lost their interest!

Did you know? 15 of the 17 states require proof of residency to be considered a qualifying patient for medical marijuana use. Only Oregon has announced that it will accept out-of-state applications. It is unknown if Delaware will accept applications from non-state residents once the program is established.
