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

    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

    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???)

    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.

    Wrong the War on (Some) Drugs started in 1914 so it is 100 years old/

    The War on (Some) Drugs is on you an me. 100 years of failure and destruction of human lives and still being funded. Over $1 trillion spent and still climbing.

    The Some Drug War is just another disease. Makes things more expensive and dangerous. Sows fear and lies and loss of our freedoms. yes after 100 years a good time to stop it.

    @dtroutma

    Just so you understand, alcohol is a hard narcotic. It is responsible for 100’s of thousands of deaths every year as does tobacco.

    You are taking about distillation. Just make a cocaine leaf tea. Not anywhere like concentrated powdered cocaine at all.

    Harley: alcohol doesn’t stop muscle spasms and pain, pot does. Prescription drugs don’t work as well, and leave you a lot more “stoned”. Opiates, highly addictive and dangerous, pot – not.

    Ted, you forgot to mention that pot is probably a very effective tool for vote suppression.

    Waitthe election was yesterday?

    True. LIttle hope left and spare change.

    If weed makes people passive, how come there was so much public dissent and uproar in the 1960s, when it first became popular among White folks?
