Great, lets waste some more tax dollars locking up nonviolent drug offenders for marijuana. Don't smoke that organic natural safe marijuana, it is dangerous. Better head over the rite aid and pick up some vicodin and a fifth of liquor like a respectable person. To the government and to my fellow citizens, STAY THE FUCK OUT OF MY PERSONAL LIFE. I work full time, pay my taxes, and I don't bother anybody. The only crime that I EVER commit is possessing and using marijuana. Where is the victim of this crime? Who is it hurting? How does what I do effect any of you?

Your point about marijuana being far less harmful than alcohol or prescription medication is entirely apt.
Unfortunately, this guy also tested as nearly 2.5 times the legal limit of blood alcohol content for operating a motor vehicle. I'm glad he was arrested before he had a chance to negligently kill someone by act of stupidity.

Boozers and pillheads behind the wheel are the real terrorists here. You never know what car you see on the road might be driven by a drunkard (or pill popper) that could could plow into your vehicle and kill you and your loved ones. That is terrifying.

Another upstanding citizen, with a minimum wage job, who's nothing but a pot head in their free time. No wonder our world is so screwed up, druggies believe some drugs are ok but others aren't. If pot was legal, wouldn't be long before you'd cry about another drug you want to use should be legal. People are unbelievable, just obey the law and stop crying that your own problem isn't legal for your own personal sake.

Marijuana may not be harmful, or have an immediate harmful affect...However, the resin does gather in your lungs which is equal to or worse than that of smoking cigarettes...Plus it alters how your thinking, which is what makes it dangerous. No drug is a safe drug..Even Tylenol isn't safe. If you want my honest opinion though, I would love for the druggies to have unlimited use of the drugs they do, so they can hurry up and stop polluting our country with their stupid senselessness...Might be a cruel way to look at it, but really what good is a druggie? They are good for stealing our hard earned things, and snorting or smoking our hard earned tax dollars...

Even though you seem to be about 3 IQ points away from being a full blown retard I will respond. I have smoked pot for over 10 years and I don't do other drugs. Why would I want other drugs to be legal? They cause problems, and weed does not. This isn't an issue as simple as "just obey the law". I love America, and the American way is not forcing your will on others. The American way is not remaining silent when obviously unjust laws are being forced upon the citizens of the United States. This is not a simple issue, there are many things to consider. Can you explain to me exactly how locking up nonviolent pot smoking kids in dangerous federal prisons benefits society? Can you explain how we benefit from paying roughly $20,000 per inmate per year in tax dollars to lock these people up for a nonviolent victimless crime? When you put these kids in prison they emerge criminals with no job prospects and chances are we will end up paying for them again. Also consider that almost 80% of drug arrests are for marijuana. Something that causes relatively few problems aside from health related issues is filling our prisons, wasting law enforcement resources, and causing billions of tax dollars to be wasted. And for what? How has the drug war worked out for us? Are there still not drug dealers on every block and street in this country?

I am not sure what this is supposed to have to do with marijuana in any way whatsoever. Of course alcohol and pills are horrible drugs that cause countless deaths each year in America. But pot is not booze and pills, so I am not sure what kind of point you were trying to make here.

Since when is our federal government responsible for the health of its citizens? Didn't see that one in the constitution, you know what that is right? If the government were responsible for our health chances are they wouldn't let us drink or smoke cigarettes either. So why can they tell me no marijuana is unsafe while at the same time telling me cigarettes and alcohol are fine, even though they kill hundreds of thousands of people a year? Does that honestly make sense to you? Alcohol was once illegal in this country as well. How many of you who condemn me for smoking pot would oppose a law to illegalize alcohol again? And if you feel that way then you are a hypocrite, and you should really examine your personal beliefs. I am not going to sit here and argue with a bunch of stupid middleaged losers anymore. Some of you need to be sterilized for the good of mankind, and probably your dumbass pillhead children as well.

A nonviolent drug? Look at how many are killed over marijuana deals each year. There will always be drug dealers on the streets as long as there are idiots like you buying drugs from them. There will always be people killed over drugs, as long as idiots like you feel that you must have them. There will be innocent people caught in the crossfire because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time, thanks to people like you. You think laws should be made based upon your opinion? If that were so, it would be a sad sad world. It's people like you as to why I have to worry about who talks to my kids, because you believe marijuana is ok, as I do not, and since it's illegal and dangerous then I believe I am easily in the right. If you wish to smoke what little brain cells you have left away, and continue to earn minimum wage in a job they don't drug test, then go ahead. Just don't try to bring the rest of society down with you. Go flip me another hamburger!

Actually, according to the DEA, marijuana smoked now days has a greater affect on people who smoke it than it used to in the 70s and 80s making more dangerous. They have tried to legalize marijuana more than once, and because of the health risks, it has not passed. Sounds to me that you all are the whiny twits because it's not legalized. I obey law, unlike you drug heads. I am standing by what is right. You are the one crying. Get your facts straight before you open your mouth.

You're complaining to the wrong people. If you want to get pot legalized take it up with the legislature. Start a petition and get a couple hundred thousand signatures. I personally think pot needs to be de- criminalized. As a tax paying citizen I'm tired of paying these jails to take care of pot smokers.

Right now it is ILLEGAL!! Try to change that legally if you don't like it. Quit your belly aching and get to work!

You are delusional. First of all no one wants to get your kids hooked on drugs. Unlike you I don't care what other people are doing when it doesn't effect me, why would I care if they smoke pot or not? Second of all, legalizing and regulating pot like alcohol would make it way harder for kids to get. A state licensed dispensary would require ID, street drug dealers do not. And as far as marijuana related violence between street level dealers how could that even exist anymore if pot were legalized? There would be no street level dealers of pot anymore. It would be just like a liquor store or a medical marijuana clinic. Sure these places get robbed but s9 do every other type of business. You know, for someone who keeps questioning my intelligence you have yet to directly address one point that I have made so far. Not one. I am begining to wonder if you are even capable of doing so.

By the way, your insane accusations and assumptions about someone you know absolutely nothing about speaks volumes about your intelligence and mental capacity, or lack thereof. I have honestly gotten quite a bit of amusement from being called stupid and told to flip another burger by someone who is barely even literate at a high school level. You might honestly be the most ignorant person I have ever talked to in my entire life. It is very unfortunate that you reproduced and further contaminated the human gene pool. We can only hope that your kids aren't as stupid as their dipshit hick father. Have a good evening.

Ghetto, you are wasting your breath. People like "Wow" were brainwashed by the Reagan-era Just Say No garbage. I am a health care professional, and any intelligent person knows that weed is much less harmful than alcohol. I mean, how often do you hear of someone being killed in a "marijuana driving accident"? Or a high person (on weed) starting some violent incident? And Wow says he/she obeys the law, but has wow ever sped on the interstate? Or Jay-walked? That is illegal, and a crime. Also, 150 years ago slavery was legal. So did that mean slavery is ok? No. Just like something being illegal does not mean it is wrong. But some people will never think for themselves. They will just wrap themselves in the flag and say that whatever the idiots on Capitol hill decides is ok with them. Pathetic.

Actually you're just ignoring my points I've been making to suit your own argument. Legalizing it, wouldn't make it harder to get for kids, only easier which also shows how intelligent you really are. Just like alcohol, have someone of age buy it, then the kids walk away with it. Legalize pot, they'll do the same. Just making it easier to access. Glad you thought that one out dumbass!
And to the "health professional". I believe alcohol should be illegal as well, but I can't change that. They both mess with your brain and motor skills. When did this become a comparison of alcohol and marijuana? Jesus you people are retarded when trying to make an argument to justify your drug usage. You are prime examples of why not to smoke weed.
And it is illegal to drive when high, it's still DUI.

I haven't been ignoring your points, you just haven't made any logical ones. They give kids that are in school a drug and alcohol surrvey and a majority of them said marijuana is much easier to get than alcohol. That is because a kid can't walk into 7-11 and buy a 12 pack but a kid could walk to the bus transit and buy 3 dime bags from any shady drug dealer there. You honestly don't see how this makes sense?

"Penalties against possession of a drug
should not be more damaging to an
individual than the use of the drug itself;
and where they are, they should be
changed. Nowhere is this more clear than
in the laws against possession of marihuana in
private for personal use... Therefore, I support
legislation amending Federal law to eliminate all
Federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to
one ounce of marihuana."
- Jimmy Carter, U.S. President
