Many countries have huge drug problems. America is the most violent next to Mexico because of probition police aggresion. Not because of the drugs. Take the money away. The rest will end also.
America was not a violent country until Reagan introduced the hard drugs. Then he created millions of jobs to end it.

Well in our great country you have three options for POTUS, let me guess, you threw your vote away on a 3rd party so you could feel good about yourself and tell people on topix how smart you are? Enjoy your life.

Do we really want poeple like Jared Lee Loughner to smoke pot legally? He could already do it illegally. If they legalize pot will convicts have legal access to it? Will the taxpayers be footing the bill for pot smoking in prison?
As we see in this tragic event, the legality of a substance mattered not. Had he been a drunk, is that any better? Would using legal alcohol have prevented this? Hardly.
Do you keep yourself awake wondering if parolees are allowed to purchase legal alcohol?
Do we really think they'll allow prisoners to smoke pot when they already cannot have cigarettes?

The sky is falling, chicken little.

Mexico needs to declare an act of war on the cartels and turn us loose to take them out unless they surrender. Then they must execute or imprison them for life. They know who they are and can do it. Short of that won't do it. If you legalize, the same people won't quit crime, they'll just go over to other crimes and there are plenty of them. Kidnapping for starters.
Just like the other corporate criminals...

Oh but here comes the argument from the prohibitionists that we "Can't add ANOTHER substance to our problems. We don't need ANOTHER alcohol."
They LOVE this argument, because it totally ignores the chemical makeups of each respective drug, the addictive potentials, societal ramifications, etc. If pot were legalized, and people switched to pot from alcohol, it's quite possible things could get better based on the science of the drugs. But that is never even considered.
Alcohol bad= Pot bad. Logic? Who needs it!
Said argument also ignores the fact that we ALREADY HAVE marijuana, and it's a bigger problem because of its illegality not despite it. Legalization would free up billions of dollars spent on enforcement, prosecution and incarceration of otherwise harmless individuals and would generate revenue. If marijuana is such a danger to society, why make it worse by throwing the thick headed, low brow approach that law enforcement brings to the mix? Are we really that determined to ruin families and lives because of a plant?

Don't bother with hi, Len. He's trolling for opportunities to abuse people whenever this subject comes up. He's either an utter BS-er or he's a self-righteous, George W. Bush style dry drunk. Whatever the case, he isn't worth your time or energy.
