    And let us not forget the heavily documented link of marijuana use to numerous mental health problems – bipolar, schizophrenia, etc..,

    And we have fought for decades to ban smoking in public, tax the heck out of tobacco, and demonize smokers…….we now want to make it OK to do the same damage to your bodies with marijuana. Explain the logic to me again?

    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.

    As to panel 1: Cite source please.
    .
    As a +50 YO having come through the ‘70s, I know of many many people in the next three generations that are still smokers. But they’re not “still young”.
    .
    More to the point, Pot got to be so expensive as to be a rich man’s sport (like skiing). Heck, heroin is cheaper than pot these days.

    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.

    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.

    Interestingly recreational drugs as one of the means to pacify the population is one of the ingredients of social control in Bertram Gross’s prophetic book “Friendly Fascism”.

    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.

    And its all President Obama’s fault, is it not, MrConservative….

    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?

    “If it can be grown legalize it!”
    .
    You mean cocaine and opium should be legal?
    .
    Maybe they should be, but I’m not sure.
