I slam this guy everytime he makes a stupid decision or comment, which is quite often, so I guess I should give him kudos when we agree.

I'm telling you this is the perfect issue for conservatives to tackle since it falls under their desire for smaller government and more liberty AND it allows them to get their other messages out to people who wouldn't ordinarily listen. If they run with marijuana legalization and make it 'their' issue it will gain them more voters at a time when they are hemorrhaging voters at an unsustainable rate.

And once again, you missed the entire point. People love the element of danger. Take the element of danger and defiance out of it, tax the crap out of it, and it stops being an issue. Then people will have to find something else to find "dangerous" and defiant to do.

Well your experiences and reality are often two different things. I know several 'producers' who partake including the owner of a large business (which shall remain nameless) in downtown Grand Rapids, in fact just about everyone I know who has smoked it or still does is a 'producer' according to your definition of it.

I haven't smoked any in a long time and haven't been a regular user in probably 15 years so I have no pipe to put down. That's another example of your ignorance on the subject---thinking that all who are for legalization must be a regular user of it.

Many college kids grow up and concentrate on careers...... 15 years and it shows today.... If you could only be in a DARE program all those years ago........ Most people that I pinched were young and dumb..... Many lost good paying jobs for their level of skill sets...... They drive old cars but they got their pot..... After they take their govt benefits and

We never would have guessed you were a dope smoker! Just what we need more dopes walking around!

It should be legal and not regulated. We should be able to grow it in our own yards and use as we see fit. Not sell it or try to make a living off of it. I smoked it for over 30 years the only reason I quit is because of drug testing at my job. I disagree with you on this one batch. I worked at Steelcase for 28 years and smoked daily for a long time never had a problem getting to work doing my job and making a living. But now out of respect for myself and wanting to stay employed I don't smoke okay rarely. The job I have now they do instant drug tests on sight so its not worth it... I support this legislation...though it does not go far enough for me.

Oh let's just legalize it because everyone you know including yourself is a dope. You are dangerous while under the influence of dope or other drugs. How many die from digs each year? Lets compare it to guns. One you want to take away even though it does lots of good. The other you want to legalize because you enjoy it making you stupider than you already are. It kills people and in the hands of people like you does absolutely no good.

"But now out of respect for myself and wanting to stay employed I don't smoke okay rarely."
Are you trying to say it is not good for you? Or maybe not good for the children of this country? This is a issue I really not care about to be honest. But as long as rights are being taken away from gun owners that do nothing to stop crime. And mental health is not being addressed. I think it is ridicules to legalize more mind altering poisons that the sane as well as the insane or under age can get.
