Let's stick to the subject, legalization of marijuana (only). Also, if marijuana and other drugs were legalized they would plunge in street value, therefore negating the need by addicts to commit crimes to gain money for their habit, also eliminating violent street gangs centered around selling expensive "currently illegal drugs." If everyone could grow marijuana and opium they would be virtually free, just like growing your own tomatoes.
I highly doubt we would close prisons if we legalize marijuana. If pot was legalized, people would still drive while high on marijuana and there would be a rapid increase in car crashes, pedestrians getting hit, and bicyclists being run over. All these pot heads would be going right back to jail, not because they smoked pot, but because they killed someone.

Come now, my man, 60% of fatal car crashes are now caused by completely sober people, while only 40% are caused by drunk drivers! It seems to me that the justice system has it all wrong; they truly should be arresting sober drivers, since it would apparently do more good than arresting the drunks!!!

Driving while under the influence of marijuana is not nearly as bad as drunk driving

Legalize it but do NOT tax it. Let people grow their own for personal use and keep the stupid federal gubmint out of the picture.

You're so funny. That's like saying killing 7 people is not nearly as bad as killing 9 people. Common now be a man and not a coward, put the pot away and be happy. Pot is for losers.

Winner? So I am ignorant for wanting people to live? I am uneducated claiming that people who drive while on pot will kill more people than if they were not on pot? Please tell me how human life is less important than getting a buzz from pot. I'll wait.

Legalize and tax marijuana, so that we can close many of our overcrowded prisons, filled largely with non-violent drug offenders, saving New York State 10's of millions of dollars!

This is a no-brainer people; we would not only gain a source of tax revenue, but we would save 10's of millions of dollars a year by closing unused prisons!!!
