Medical MJ is okay I think.  I mean, if I understand it correctly ... it's produced for specific results in pain relief, anxiety control, etc.  Personally, as a recreational drug, I've never enjoyed it.  In my heyday of the 60's/70's I wasn't too much of a fan.  I went in another direction, or directions I should say.  Glad I outgrew that phase of life!  Chuckle.

I support medical use of marijuana ... plus legalization can and hopefully will make a dent in the drug problems around the country. Once legal those fools who sell it illegally won't make such a profit. (or then maybe big business makes the profit.) Hmm too early for me to have this conversation! Chuckle.

The prohibition of marijuana has done a 1000 times more damage to our society than marijuana will ever even begin to do. Marijuana doesn't ruin lives, people do, be it either done by themselves or by others (more often by others).

All of these statistics that are thrown around - have any of them been researched?

A few years ago a woman on the Taconic Parkway in NY got on the road going in the wrong direction.She hit an oncoming car and killed 2 passengers in that car......herself.....and 4 children in her car.I believe 1 other child was seriously hurt but survived.

Research?When you ask that question this topic should go in the comic section.

BTW.....the autopsy showed there was weed in her blood.

Should you smoke pot? Of course not.  You also shouldn't eat sugar or drink alcohol. Should it be legal? Of course it should.
I have heard plenty of decent reasons here why people should not smoke it but still not one decent reason why it should be illegal. Just one decent reason guys, and I'll be on board.

marijuana stays in your system for up to a month. Therefore she could have smoked it another day. I don't know anybody that is that dumb to drive on the wrong side of the road even under the influence of pot. i'm a great high driver. Please source this "research"

I'm not in a position to say it's wrong.  I've (Thank the Lord) never had a need for using marijuana.  For those that turn to it for medical reasons' that's there choice and to have it available to make there lives easier than so be it.  Maybe I or a loved one will be in that same position someday.  In the mean time I feel as though it's up to each individual as it's there business and nobody else has a place to judge.  Now if marijuana is being used a drug to get high and just act stupid - I'm against it.  There are plenty other things that can bring joy to ones life.

Zal again you have to scroll up and see how he used the 30 days it stays in your system when i explained the woman killed many people driving.

NEVER did it seem hed admit it may have contributed to a massive loss of life....why???Cos he is hooked on the stuff and wants to defend it!!

Case closed.

Im gonna compete with Judge Judy!!
