Are you a fool? The very major reason why marijuana should be legalized IS because of this violence.
Marijuana does not cause crime. Drug lords that sell it illegally in a black market are making billions of dollars and that is what is fueling this violence.
Not to mention recent crack downs by the new president of Mexico.
You don't know anything. Locking up low level pot users isn't a wise use of justice resources and keeping Marijuana illegal forces lawful citizens to purchase marijuana in a black market.
Marijuana consumers are responsible citizens who smoke marijuana to relax and most especially for the relief of suffering and pain.
We are not low life criminals, we are citizens made out to be criminals.
Marijuana is a good and beneficial plant, the most versatile and profitable resource in the world, and not just for smoking.
Those cartels make 70 percent of their money from illegal marijuana sales.
Bingo, legalize it and you kill two birds with one stone.
We stop wasting money prohibiting our nation's number one cash crop, the high black market prices disappear, people grow their own legally, in a regulated and taxed, legal marijuana market.
That's a sound answer.
Continuing to waste over 40 billion dollars a year JUST in drug prohibition actions is a completely irresponsible.
It is our prohibitive marijuana laws that are directly contributing to the violence across the boarder, not marijuana consumers themselves.
And let idiots like you become drug lords and then politicians? If you try to promote pot, you have an agenda and you are up to no good.

Research on cannabis is done outside of the United States BECAUSE of our foolish prohibition of Marijuana.

This is valid research, and the rest of the world could care less what we think.

America is wrong about Cannabis.

It is a great medicine and safe recreational substance.

No one should be sent to jail for smoking Cannabis, period.

It's unethical and a severe waste of limited justice resources, and these monies wasted in ill fated attempts at curbing drug use, could be instead spent on public education and healthcare.

I do have an agenda, and so do 14 states within the the Union.

Our 'agenda' is one of compassion and common sense.

It isn't common sense nor is it compassionate, to lock up the sick and suffering for choosing the safest and most effective medicine for their own needs.

Nor is it wise to harass recreational users of Marijuana.

Marijuana is safe, no one has died of smoking it, and no one ever will, the science shows this to be impossible.

Those who support the legalization of marijuana understand that wasting 40 billion dollars a year JUST in drug enforcement cost is very wasteful.

We respect freedom and liberty, of our own bodies most especially.

We respect logic and science, not political malarky.

We should treat this issue as a public health issue, not as a criminal one.

Over 30 years of drug prohibition hasn't changed the rate of drugs use, ever.

This war is a failure, it's a war on innocent people.

It needs to stop, which is why we must work through politics.

Our leaders won't listen to the will of the people, so the people must impose their will upon their leaders.

Or they will find that re election is not as easy as they think, when overall 42 percent of the nation supports the legalization of marijuana, and as much as 52 percent in the Western states fully support outright legalization.

California is at 56 percent and above, ensuring that the legalization of Marijuana will be attained this November.

God help you, you horrible hate monger.

The truth shall set you free, Cal.

You shouldn't have hatred towards your fellow man.

Judge not or lest ye be judged accordingly.

God also told the faithful to return hate with love.

So, God bless you with enlightenment.

Should you choose to continue in your hate, I pray your horrible attitude will stay behind closed doors.

No one want's to hear people like you.

Marijauna laws are unethical because they allow for legalized discrmination (mandatory drug testing) as well as creating an atmosphere of distrust and confusion.

Africans make up a very small percentage of those who smoke Marijuana, yet, people of colour in general bear the disproportionate brunt of these laws' enforcement.

Locking up people for low leve pot possession wastes resources and space that could be dedicated to rehabilitating and incarcerating the truly violent criminals in our society.

It's unethical to arrest a sick person and throw them into jail.

That causes more harm to the person than their marijuana smoking ever could.

As compassionate beings, we are supposed to value justice and liberty above all, yet we lock up over 800,000 people a year for JUST smoking marijuana.

A plant, created by God, with the intent of blessing mankind.

that is just crazy.

I was a teen in the 80's when pot was the drug of choice. I have smoked it and I do know that it does impair you. Maybe it is not the same type of impairment as alcohol, but impaired thinking is what it is regardless of the level. I also know that the people that I knew that smoked daily or several times per week to this day have several burnt brain cells! You can still tell that they were stoners just by talking to them. I am all for legalizing it for medicinal purposes, but I am afraid that it will be abused just as Oxycontin is. It was intended for cancer patients and now people with "chronic pain" take it. I have lots of bone issues and never have a pain free day but I don't even take Tylenol on a daily basis bc I have just learned to live with it. I think it will be a long time before KY legalizes it.

For most people, they ARE NOT willing to live with pain, and they shouldn't have to.

If you have bone disease, then medical marijuana will help.

One of the few remaining legal, federal marijuana patients is a stock broker and he has a rare bone disease as well.

He was placed in the compassionate new drug programme, the same one that Bush senior shut down as soon as he was elected.

You are correct, there will always be abuse potential.

There will always be stoners. They aren't hurting anyone and they certainly don't deserve to be thrown in jail.

We desperately need to reform this unfairly harsh laws.

Wrong buddy boy, completely wrong. Yes, dealers make it bad, because most don't care about their clients.

If they are out of pot, they might just offer you something else.

Taxing and regulating cannabis would return control to the state and the union, and wasting over 40 Billion a year in drug enforcement is absolutely horrible when we are at record high deficits and people are hungry for education and real healthcare.

Don't you think we could be treating this situation differently?

Over 30 years of prohibition has not decreased the level of use, which means this 'war on drug' is a massive failure and the American people are tired of footing the bill.
