if marijuana were legal and taxable, we wouldn't have this problem of wasting tax payers' money and valuable law enforcement time busting someone for growing a substance far less dangerous than alcohol.

Well Seaside police detectives and officers are really making many people proud. Seaside police are constantly doing what it takes to make Seaside safe even if they have to jump cities and bust drug dealers that decide to bring their evil to our town. We do not want Seaside to be the way it was a few years ago. Bravo to Seaside Police, we back you all the way!

I don't know all the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana, but some years ago a friend told me something very surprising. He is a very intelligent, well educated man, and as straight an arrow as they come. He drinks little and has never used illicit drugs of any kind. His career is in law enforcement/security.

He said nearly all his encounters with violent people showed that they had been using alcohol whereas "the potheads" were usually pretty mellow. He said if it were up to him, he would legalize marijuana, and either make alcohol illegal or much more strongly regulate its use.

This made a strong impression on me, because he was about the last person from whom one would expect to hear such a thing, but I've often wondered if there are any studies that confirm his perception.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
