Alcohol and tobacco are more of a health threat to this country than weed. The only problem is that weed is not enough of a cash crop for the corrupt politicians.
Our politicians aren't responsible enough to handle manufactured marijuana as a cash crop. The sharks already operate like a mob, could you imagine tossing Government mandated marijuana into the mix? We'd have our own modern day Mexico in the U.S.

As much as I'd love to see it decriminilized (too many good people go to jail for miniscule amounts of marijuana) I really don't trust our Government enough to hold them accountable for something like that. All I have to go on is the way they've handled responsibility in the past, and honestly, they take no liability for anything.

IF, and that's a big IF, they were to not only decriminilize, but legalize and manufacture marijuana, they would junk it up with thousands of addicting carcinogenic chemicals, just like they did with tobacco, and ruin the organic nature that makes it appealing in the first place.

It's nice in theory, but we've got a bunch of old-money-grown-children-frat- boy-wanna-be idiots running this country. They already can't carry their plates from all the crap they've piled on it. They sure as heck can't handle this.

I believe that.let people keep up to 5 plants for themselves and get licensed to sell it.I don't think them goverment could handle it either.for the little man its a great opportunity.maybe a couple thousand extra every 3 months.

I like your thinking. Hell, even two...even ONE...I bet crime would drop like crazy. Not to mention, they would probably be hesitant to decriminalize since they've spent the last 3 decades preaching "SAY NO" and "MARIJUANA IS A DANGEROUS DRUG" Wouldn't want to seem hypocritical, now would they? Wait...they did that a long time ago. Nevermind, then. I've got nothing.

jeff k, do you work in the prison? How do you know they are going to release child molesters? Quit spewing lies and lay off the pipe.

Actually, I am a former cop and took people to jail; but did not actually "work" in a prison. Trust me, though, I know some of the games played by the criminal justice system -- and a "drug conviction" scores a lot of brownie points versus larcenies, burglaries, etc., etc., when it comes election time. I've seen some chaps get more time for drug possession than for manslaughter - but that's another topic for another day, sir.

It's not necessarily a "one for one" deal where the state will release child molesters and other violent felons in order to house a junkie......but there are only so many prison beds to go around; so you do the math. Look at how many non-violent prisoners (don't like the term "inmate" - since that is someone in a mental health facility) are taking up space & resources and how many really bad guys are getting early release/parole, especially in states such as California and New York.

Don't worry about me having to "lay off the pipe" at all. My vice is bourbon, which is legal and I don't imbibe when having to drive somewhere. If they made pot legal tomorrow, I would never touch the stuff. I need what few brain cells I still have!

I was trying to change my font/color....I guess that won't work here.

:(

I am not a "stoner" by any stretch, and get irritated at anyone who expresses a non-prohibition viewpoint being lumped in as such.

My opinions on such matters are swayed by two major issues: First, there is the question of who "owns" your body, you or the state. I believe that prostitution should be decriminalized for similar reasons.....but that is an entirely different subject for another day.

Second, we only have limited law enforcement resources available in our state & nation. I would rather see efforts focused on those who are truly dangerous to others - and those who would steal or commit violent crime against innocent people.

I worry more about a mugger, rapist, murderer, car thief, bank robber or kidnapper more than the local junkie toking up in his bedroom on a Sunday night.

The only upside; most ( I repeat MOST) weed users don't commit violent crimes...side effects of smoking weed-laziness and stupidity.
