It is legal to grown tobacco, or make alcoholic beverages for your own consumption subject to certain regulation, but selling is taxable. Edible or extracted forms of certain types of marijuana has real medical benefits for some. It is more effective against pain than oxycontin but far less toxic. Marijuana is less harmful to society than either tobacco or alcohol, and prohibition only funds the criminal element and prisons. Legalizing alcohol after prohibition did not result in an increase in alcoholics, it will be the same with marijuana. Let our police and prisons focus on real criminals and generate funds through the sin tax.
That claim about pain depends on the person and the reason. Not a true statement the way you presented it. I agree with it being less harmful then cigs and booze. It should be legal, but studies have shown that when people smoke it, they don't drink alcohol or smoke tobacco as much. Those are big industries fighting it. Also if you put a heavy tax on pot, then it will be cheaper to buy it on black market. Or grow it yourself.

I don't smoke it either and I agree with what you wrote. I don't think it will ever happen. It is complicated, but basically to many parties have to much to lose if it was legalized. Also, I think there is an issue on the federal level because of a treaty that Nixon signed with other countries. Congress would have to vote to break that treaty first.

Prohibition is the fuel of criminality and terrorism. We know this now. Send the prohibitionists in jail. With the room leaved by the MJ smokers and dealers, you will have plenty of places.

<quoted text>No one would need to come to your home to regulate - if the neighbors don't see it, it doesn't exist. And I'm betting at least one person on your street grows now! A locked room tends to keep everybody out. There are ready to use mouth swab drug tests that are available to detect marijuana use within the last 24 hours. Most Probation offices have these already, to catch probation violations - they are pretty inexpensive and reliable. And they don't take any longer than a breathylizer for a result. They also detect meth use. They should actually be standard equipment in a police car now.

I agree, that will happen when the pot is heavily taxed and people can buy it cheaper from a neighbor. We can sell tomatoes from our yard, why not pot?
