Funny no president wants to be remembered for allowing pot but they will insisting on going down in history for doing some really blinkingly awful things. It would be nicer to be remembered as someone who actually helped save America and her residents.

Agreed. The mail carrier is the victim here. All the illegal drugs together do less physical damage to users in the USA than alcoholic beverages and tobacco products, all of which are legal. My own theory is that this situation continues because the government is dependent on the huge tax revenues their sale provides. Hopefully in the future the USA will have "zones" like the Netherlands where grownups can go and do whatever. Prohibition never works.

So, according to the news story, a 19 year old kid was buying weed off this guy since he was in high school. So let me explain something: If marijuana were regulated, this kid probably wouldn't have even touched the stuff prior to turning 18!!
When a government (such as ours) decides to penalize marijuana smokers and dealers, it is hurting our citizens in the long run. To start, kids are selling pot in middle school nowadays!! If the stuff were regulated, similar to the way we regulate alcohol, then it would significantly curb the pot problem that consumes middle schools and high schools across the country.

Do you want your middle schooler selling pot? I mean, your 8th grade child can certainly find pot way easier than he or she can find cigarettes or booze, thats for sure.. and your middle schooler will jump at the idea of selling it. FREE MONEY! FREE WEED! Prohibition creates problems like these.

Picture if alcohol was illegal, similarly. We'd definitely have a bunch of drunk kids. After all, who will the teenager listen to? Who holds the most influence on your teenager? Its safe to say its not the parents. Its the KIDS!!!

They don't go to the mall with their parents you idiots, they go to the mall with their FRIENDS. the people they identify with.. and surely these are the people whose behavior they'll imitate.
Meanwhile, alcohol abuse plagues our country and causees death and injury to hundreds and thousands of americans per year due to Cirrhosis, drunk driving accidents, alcohol overdoses, alcohol detox, alcohol poisoning, bar fights, domestic fights, THE LIST GOES ON!!!!
Yet at the same time people, Rastas of Jamaica have been smoking pot every day of their lives in Jamaica and are in their 70s... their lung screens show them to be in perfect health. Maybe they like things slowed down a bit from time to time... but the bottom line is that if America as a country voted on whether or not Marijuana should be legal, in this day and age, we all know what the response would be...
LEGALIZE ALREADY!!

Potheads aren't on the streets, they go to 7-11 or drive thru and go back to a friends house and that's it.

You should be more concerned about the crackheads, meth heads, and rapist......

Actually it does. Despite being a stickler for spelling and correct grammar, I'm wondering everyone expects people to use correct grammar in a comment section. We must be bored.

I thought CA was liberal on pot. Too bad. I would have liked that trend to spread.

When the money is an issue or if the paycheck is less than desired, some people will improvise when the opportunity presents itself. I guess that the deal costed him his job and landed him in the detention facility, e.g., out of the limelight and into the pokey.

I just want to add that we dole out Zoloft, Xanax (sp), Vallium and all other types of Rx's. A lot of these "drugs" can result in overdoses and addiction...no one has ever DIED from MJ and it has been scientifically proven that you cannot become addicted. Dependent yes just like we are dependent on meat we don't need it but we consume it every day. So instead of taking crazy Rx's we should all light up! LOL...and to note the one thing that makes MJ bad for you is the actual smoke. If you drank it in tea or ate it those problems would go away....so to all the "legal" peeps keep taking your zoloft and so on...hope it does you well!
