Liquor has found a fairly stable place in our world, there's no great epidemic of alcoholism or DUI. Everyone gets it pretty much. Pot has always been here doing just what it's doing right now. The law is almost the same as present liquor law. at least concerning personal use. The use of pot in the presence of a minor - can't you wait til the little f*cker's gone? If pot isn't a part of your life now, it won't be after Nov. 2 either.
"stable'? This is from 2001: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which published the study, estimated that 34,833 people in 2001 died from cirrhosis of the liver, cancer and other diseases linked to drinking too much beer, wine and spirits. Another 40,933 died from car crashes and other mishaps caused by excessive alcohol use.

I know someone who got hooked on pot and they went crazy and stole a car to feed their habit.

Carol, imagine if the addiction was to cigarettes or alcohol. The outcome would be far worse. This is the fault of co-dependency which is a mental disorder. It is NOT the fault of cannabis. Cannabis is not going to make a person crazy or dangerous, they'd be equally crazy or dangerous while sober or under any other substance.

Those are the facts, ma'am. I hope you remember the episode about two young parents who got stoned and forgot about the baby in the bathtub. First time on the job, Gannon got sick. Wasn't pretty.

2001 is 13 years ago and things are about the same. I'm gonna keep tokin' LEGALLY, stayin' out 'a the street, and Out of trouble.
..mishaps indeed - don't encourage me to make use of naturally occurring traps, pitfalls and self-induced SHIT-ASTERS people have earned for themselves. How many died of terminal stoopiditty - I can assist a few more into police cars and ambulances.
A person must VALUE good manners and personal conduct. Most who do were taught this by example and it felt good. People who say they don't like it have never tried it. The pot is pretty good too.

That is the only study that says that. Cannabis smoke contains cannabinoids whereas tobacco smoke contains nicotine. Available scientific data, that examines the carcinogenic properties of inhaling smoke and its biological consequences, suggests reasons why tobacco smoke, but not cannabis smoke, may result in lung cancer. Please read the scientific studies before posting false information and site accurate sources. You will find support to my statement here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1... With that said, I use pot but never smoke it.

I'm not against marijuana if that's what you think. It's got to be way better for you then the drugs from drug companies.
I just think it's very ironic that Cali was the first to ban smoking then is the first to legalize marijuana.

Norton, voting no means destroying the country even further. Prohibition is an expensive waste. Also, cannabis is not at ALL harmful like tobacco. Yes, smoking cannabis excessively will cause insignificant and easily reversible damage, but this STILL pales in comparison to cigarettes, and is the fault of combustion, not cannabis. You can avoid this entirely with edibles and vaporizers. Also, cannabis does NOT cause cancer as tobacco does. Cannabis actually cures cancer.
