Yes and the government should tax it. Think about how many tax dollars marijuana could bring in. They could regulate its use like they do with alcohol.

I agree, the same work restrictions would apply. Show up drunk/high your done. On the drug test note one stays in your system a lot longer than the other.

Does anyone know if NORML(National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws) is still active - Keith Stroup had a great opportunity in the late 70's and early 80's to move toward legalization - however, he wouldn't just argue the pot issue, but had to include hard drugs as well - that turned a lot of people off - was hoping to see it legalized in my lifetime, but they better hurry! I raise my own, now, but it would certainly help reduce the crime rate if it were legalized -

Yes, it is still around. The reason you stated is about one of the only reasons that it hasn't been decriminalized yet. Junkies want everything legalized. Potheads just want their green.

what's the biggest doobie you ever rolled? back in the early 70's when pot was $90 a lb (in some places in memphis), we would glue 8 job's together and roll an entire bag (oz)- take a hit and enjoy "darkside of the moon"

Some believe that prostitution should be legalized and regulated by the government.

Would it lower the number of STDs spread?
Could it also be taxed?

An interesting concept to consider.

it is inaccurate to say "they all just want to set there and do nothing" - i've been smoking pot for 40 years - have my BBA and MBA - am considered "successful" by most standards - Pot is like any other substance - abuse it and you lose - Look at fat people who abuse food - many die an early death because they could not control the urge to eat - your statement is nothing but illiterate propaganda - i don't claim to be an expert in a lot of areas - i do know how to make companies profitable, know how to buy companies that are on the verge of bankruptcy and bring them back to life and i DO know pot - the key, sir, to any thing is moderation!! drink a shot of whiskey every day and you probably will live a normal life - drink a quart of whiskey every day and you may not live quite as long!- Again, self control is moderation, my friend - u r right about one thing, however - it would reduce the crime rate - oh yes, about your comment, it is "sit" and not "set" - unwind, smoke a joint and try and not to sterotype all of us "potheads"

has been argued and advocated by some groups for several years - imagine the tax base for prostitution and marijuana - government could establish a moderate rate and price the "black market" out of business - prostitutes could get their weekly check-ups and help prevent the spread of STDs - if you really wanted to reduce crime drastically, use the Dr Timothy Leary concept - establish drug farms out in the deserts, legalize everything and allow all druggies to move to the provided "drug havens" - crime would be reduced because druggies would no longer need any $$ to purchase their habit - good in theory - better in practice!!!
