Full story: Fox 8 WGHP

In her 88 years, Florence Siegel has learned how to relax: A glass of red wine. A crisp copy of The New York Times, if she can wrest it from her husband.

I quit smoking it a few months ago, and since I have. Those aches and pains of arthritis, degenerative disk disease in lower back has caused me to reconsider going back to smoking it. I am 52 years old. I think that the weed should be legalized to help us with our aches and pains and our diseases. Not only will it help with that, the Law Enforcement will have more time to work in more areas of crime and the court systems will be lessened over the use and possession of this drug. I would rather see this drug being sold or used than Alcohol. Legalizing Pot will help our economy as it will create jobs, farming and in our state and in any state that is in need of recovery.

Legalized for medical use only. The last thing we need is a bunch of stoned people added to the drunk people driving an automobile. I realize that Darwinism will "weed" (sorry for the pun) out the totally stupid but they'll take innocent people with them. If you need it for medical reasons, then it should be treated just any other prescription, controlled substance. But that won't be enough for the addicted. They'll want it to be just like beer and sold everywhere.

I wish the fossils in congress would start smoking pot. Maybe then they would legalize it for 21+.

Fine by me if it's legalized but I don't care to have everyone driving around after smoking pot as it does affect reaction time. Just use the same guidelines as for drinking and driving. If people want to light up when they're at home for the night go for it but don't get behind the wheel of the car.
