Violence involved with pot? I think the mere fact of paranoia lessens that to a certain extent...

I feel that marijuana is much LESS dangerous than alcohol... because most potheads I know are content to stay in and play video games or watch the Three Stooges, instead of driving around.

Look, God put it here right? So what's it to be used for? Rope? Then why make it psychoactive?

Face it good people of faith, God put it here for Man to ingest. I recommend not pissing Him off by passing on it.

How about they do some real work and solve some murders or find some rapists now that they took this terrorist off the street.

I believe the poster was referring to the violence involved BECAUSE of its illegal status. Having a multi-billion dollar commodity in the hands of a black market means violence.

$100,000 worth. Sounds like a pretty expensive habit.

I do have to say that its truly nice to come onto a thread here where everyone seems to agree. Not only that, but we all agree that the destructive policies of the past are worthless and need to be amended. You can tell from the various posters that many people have shed the ignorance of the past and in educating themselves about cannabis, they have come to find nothing wrong with it. America has hope after all.

Right on. If we can allow illegal aliens in the country and flount the law then why not a little weed. Once civil disobiedience starts there is no stopping it.

that's nothing compared to the crystal meth drug trade by law enforcement in Rusk and Cheroke Counties to the south of Tyler, TX.

I have an older brother he is around 65yrs. he has brain cancer,,this is the one of the many things that he does to survive,,I know in some states,Im not sure which ones that a certain amount is legal if used as medicine. I dont know much about this but I know that I think his life would be unbearable without it,,,I dont participate,,mainly because i would probably die in jail,,the article sounds like there was alot growing 100,000 street value,,sounds like it wasnt a personal thing,,,Its against the law!!
