    Legalizing may still be better than throwing thousands of otherwise law abiding citizens in jail.

    Wrong. We have lots of private, for-profit prisons, so the more crimes and the more people incarcerated, the better it is for the executives of those prisons, and that’s the important thing.

    Ted maybe we could hang out. Brilliant observation! I am all for legalizing it. I want to stop paying to make it harder to get to. I also think it will make it easier to spot and even smell the stupid! As long as they don’t try to be a protected minority group or something I say go for it. Yes it is legal now, but you still have to put on your pants to ride the bus.

    @DaSharkie

    .we now want to make it OK to do the same damage to your bodies with marijuana. Explain the logic to me again?"
    Simple, we are to be free here. If man wants to slowly poison him self with cigs then we should let him do so in Private or even in a private owned business. Smoking in a public setting in some places we went to far. I am against banning it say in a bar or even a private eatery. Why? It is the owners right to attract the customer it wants. it has never been about what the person does to them self. It should have always been I don’t want to go to the college quad ash tray after class. But if they want to hang out in one of them cages down wind. good.

    The war on drugs is a 40 year massively expensive failure.
    Legalize everything."
    NOOOO, do not swing to far the other way! The war should not be on the drugs. You can not legislate behavior by attacking the tools.
    If it can be grown legalize it! You can NOT police a weed! Pot grows you can not stop that! Now if you have to chemically process stuff, well that should be decriminalized to the point it is easier to get help then “police it” A pot farm is not going to blow up next to you like a meth lab would. just some thought as to why everything should not be legal.

    How about the traceable psychological damage of several months to several years in prison. Or the financial cost of such. Or the damage to ones career of having a criminal record

    @Mr. King

    Mr. King, you are wrong!
    The users are already idiots! It is a matter of law enforcement going to far for our own good. There are enough laws on the books. Let us enforce those laws.

    You conservative will NOT stop “hope and change”"
    How can you stop something that is so void and empty that anyone can and will fill in their own little “I will get mine” meme while chanting? How does one stop what was never a goal in the 1st place?

    I’m opposed to opiates and true hard narcotics being sold out there, but ignorance and “Reefer Madness” are still the “right wing” argument against MJ, but oddly, not booze that is a lot more dangerous, and physically lethal to many folks every year. Name one person whose actually overdosed on marijuana.


    Which, after putting up with side effects of all the pain and other medications from “big pharma”, I’m now putting in for my medical marijuana card to grow my own, as it’s more effective for my medical “problems”, and actually leaves me clearer headed, and dosage is much easier to adjust.


    MY “objections” to recreational use, is the lack of regulation on DUII using PRESCRIPTION MEDS, AND ALCOHOL, implies DUII on pot (rarely as dangerous) may be a problem. BUT, given all the drug dogs out there being used to stop “trafficking” the odds are the police are more likely to pick up those smoking pot than smashed on alcohol. (Hmm, retrain the dogs to sniff out alcohol???)

    you have to process the coke and opium. MJ is grown and dried.

    Pot vs Alcohol? For one they are both very different. One effects what your body produces the other gets into your brain and messes with it.
    http://science.howstuffworks.com/marijuana3.htm
    THC is a very potent chemical compared to other psychoactive drugs. An intravenous (IV) dose of only 1 milligram can produce serious mental and psychological effects.
    http://science.howstuffworks.com/life/inside-the-mind/human-brain/alcoholism4.htm
    Alcohol affects brain chemistry by altering levels of neurotransmitters. alcohol increases the amount of the chemical dopamine in the brain’s reward center, which creates the feeling of pleasure that occurs when someone takes a drink.

    One you can do social and it does not “change” your reality. It suppresses what is there and rewards the pleasure. the other is a flat out drug that will warp your reality and the goal is to be changed and get “high”

    @CCNJ's say the sky is falling

    Just like with getting drunk, but not every one gets “stoned out of their head” when using it.

    Citizens of the USA are a passive people. Hard to believe with all the killings going on with guns yet it is still true.

    In the 1% with some kind of schizophrenia should not ingest in any way marijuana.
