    The fact proves you wrong, mr. Varvel, based on the Washington experince. Legalization seems the only right way forward on a national scale

    The same lie again! As it is now, it’s easier for kids to buy pot than beer.

    Don’t legalize pot children will die.

    Wonder what the NRA has to say about that?

    What an idiot, his big government just released a study showing that legal pot doesn’t mean more kids smoking pot.

    Isn’t that a bit harsh?

    Folks, pot has not been legal in enough places long enough to determine what the long term consequences (or lack thereof) will be.

    Oh yeah. There’s a logical voice of reason.

    Not totally. Marijuana has a long substantiated risk of development of mental health disorders (especially Schizophrenia.) Marijuana use does increase the risk of other drug usage – just ask almost any substance abuse counselor or mental health social worker.

    Nevermind that much of the marijuana sold is distribution ally controlled by large drug cartels……perhaps you have seen the news in the past 4-5 years of the nonsense going on in Mexico.

    Marijuana MAY have some health benefits, but lets all be honest here. It is NOT benign.

    One thing that gets me about the people pushing for marijuana legalization is that they want its open use, but we have spent the last 50+ years pushing tobacco usage into the shadows. So why is it that we want to make it ok to legalize and use something that is at least as bad to smoke as tobacco based upon a large volume of medical literature?

    We already have liquor for all your self-medicating needs. And liquor has never, ever, ever, ever caused anyone to do anything dangerous, or neglect others.
    .
    Whereas we have scientific proof (I heard from a friend of a friend) that even smelling marijuana smoke on someone’s clothes immediately sends you into a homicidal rage and drives you to kill everyone within fifty square miles. Don’t ask me how the person who smoked the marijuana didn’t kill you first- questions like that mean you’re just a dumb, irrational, homicidal pothead.

    Adults only. Extremely limited advertising. Try not to glorify it. Hold people responsible for bad behavior, high or not.

    Other than that, stop telling me what to do.

    While it is true that marijuana has been linked to schizophrenia, alcohol consumption (THE gateway drug) is linked to way worse. We tried prohibition; all that did was establish a black market and empower the mob. We should learn from this.

    Large drug cartels have diversified. Cocaine and heroin are much easier to transport and more lucrative. Marijuana is the number one cash crop in California, and many dispensaries in California deal exclusively with local growers. And you won’t find any legal dealers who would prefer to deal with a Mexican cartel.

    It is not benign. Agreed. People have been smoking it for decades. People will continue.

    Cigarette smoking has absolutely no health or recreational benefits, especially when loaded with additives chosen for flavor and to increase addictiveness. To compare tobacco to marijuana is like apples and oranges. They’re both fruits, but….

    It is interesting that people who believe that the entire scientific community would agree to lie to the world regarding man’s contribution to climate change will blithely accept “scientific” conclusions about marijuana based on studies which are restricted in scope and in supply by the very government which has spent hundreds of billions trying to justify its classification as a schedule one drug.

    That reminds me of the episode of the old show Dragnet. A couple had a child in the bath tub when friends stopped by and they started smoking the bad ole Reefer and forgot about the kid in the tub and he drowned.

    Dragnet 1967: Season 2, Episode 8
    “The Big High”
