Why do people feel that hating pot smokers is a nescessity why do many of these people always stereotype someone who loves to smoke pot? A pot smoker can lead a very productive life! Bust Your Ass you clearly know nothing about marijuana so please put your arguments and hatred to rest and put your mind on somthing else. Anyone here want further discussion email me at defalt_neun00@yahoo.com
Maybe people hate it because the revenue gained from the sale of pot finances so much crime.

Your so sick. I can only hope that you are over 50. Only when you and your generation of feermongered hippy haters are dead will this great country become free for all people. You blamed the social disorder and problems of thei great nation on "drugs". Well you know what the government and all the stooges that support it are crooks and shamsters. They spew lies and disinformation and people like you eat it up by the shovel full. The federal government is out of bounds with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. You talk of communism as if your views were radically different, when in fact you would have everyone of us held under the gun of the federal government. Today in Florida if i were to put a bumper sticker on my vehicle that said "Legalize It" I would be fired by my boss, I would be pulled over by the cops every day. Thatís not political freedom is it. When we can not have a rational conversation based of fact not moral objection thatís oppression and thatís closer to communism than freedom. You are a sheep.
Mike,

I am a bit unclear regarding the tempreature of your response. First off I am over 50, and I fail to understand what my age has to do with how I feel about MJ or anything for that matter. I am also unclear in regards to what you mean by "great country become free for all people". Individual freedoms are subject to the laws we craft to benefit the MAJORITY of all citizens. The laws are not, and never should be tailored to meet the needs of a small minority of squeaky wheels. Only you can choose how you best fit into a system which is refined to meet the needs of a diverse population. If you don't agree with the laws, you have some hard choices; those choices are yours to act on...which equates to freedom. If legalizing POT is more important to you than living in a country that offers soooo much more than euphoria and munchies, you really ought to look into living in Scandinavia. Your boss there might pull you aside and ask if you have a spare roach clip.

Please point out when and where the American people were given a choice on the legallity of MJ. There was never a vote concerning this drug therefore no American ever had a say in whether it should be legal or not. That decision was made behind closed doors with in colusion with the timber industry that was threatened by the myriad of uses associated with this plant. The studies showing MJ as harmful were a smoke screen (pun intended).
Friend you have a new job. You have been self-appointed to get out and market your cause. If the law passes, I will acknolwedge it...if not, you are shit out of luck. Ball is in your court.

You are the kind of person who made the last 8 years of our lives as Americans hell on earth. Saying such racist things in your post as "ragheads" shows me that you do not have the brain power to fix anything. If you would only wake up from that stupper your in and realize that all we want is Freedom! We are not asking you to became a so called "Doper" even if that term should be given to all those perscription pill addicts and alchies that vote for war and racism. You probly still believe women shouldn't vote and blacks, Asians and Hispanics aren't human. Well the majority will rule and YOU will see that the problem isn't Pot but the lack of freedom that we have!
None,

your response reflects everything you criticize in Bust's post. While bashing him for use of incendiary labels, you use the same approach in your reply.

Can you please define "freedom" in the context of this conversation?

For the time being the greatest damage attributable to MJ is the crime that is funded with the money spent on purchasing it. Does it make good sense to continue funding crime while MJ remains illegal? Wouldn't the responsible thing to do be to abstain from buying a substance that contributes to so much anarchy? People who purchase MJ don't give a wit about the crime their money enables until it snaps back in their face. Even then they fail to make the connection.

I had a neighbor who bought a set of stolen tires for his vehicle at $20 a tire. He was so pleased with the bargain. A week later he was robbed and complained bitterly about the injustice of it all. The same kind of hypocrisy rules the minds of pot smokers. Think about it. You know it's true.

Did it ever cross your mine that the easiest way to curtail the crime associated with MJ would be to legalize it? Prohibition led to the greatest rise in criminal activity than any other period in our history. Ever hear of Al Capone? Legalization would negate all of your arguments.

Did it ever cross your mind that while it remains illegal, the pot you buy finances crime? Do you have to have it so badly that you don't care how the money you spend on it is used? Try negating that. There are legal avenues for advancing your cause. But it requires patience, perseverance, and above all, respect for the laws of the nation that shelters you (not to mention placing a higher value on human life than you do getting wasted on your precious pot).

First, you are acting under the assumption that I purhcase and partake of MH. This is a false assumption. I obey the laws whether I feel they are justified or not.
As a libertarian, I have and will continue to work against laws that I feel infringe on the liberties of all Americans.
As for the laws that 'shelter' me, I have earned those through my own service to my country. Your holier than thou attitude is not appreciated.

There's still one glaring flaw in your position in that you haven't addressed the damage done by the pot smokers whose freedom to smoke has become your personal crusade. Your attitude regarding the laws of the country that shelters you are also suspect. You appear to be more interested in working against them than for them. Furthermore, you have not "earned" anything through your "service" to your country. It is your duty to serve. Everything else is a privilege. If you wish to earn something, try earning respect. That has to do with character. People of good character respect and uphold the laws of the land, especially when it's their native land. There are nobler issues to champion than advocating for people who want to get stoned. My guess is you'd like to get stoned. What could possibly be respectable about that?

If it's true that you don't use MJ in deference to the law, it's equally true that you have demonstrated no alarm over the conduct of people who do use it to the detriment of law and order.

By the way, your holier than thou attitude is not appreciated.

i find it funny that you think that drug users should be in jail. these people are ruining thier lives not yours, this country was originally based on freedom, the freedom to smoke weed if i choose. what i do in my house is none of your concern, it doesnt affect you in any way.

however you are entitled to your opinion.

Marijuana was made illegle because the powers that be at the time saw how the hemp industry would affect thier oil company's, there were also a few large corporations that owned hundreds of thousands of acres of trees in the pacific northwest that would be worthless if hemp were to remain legal. so they got together and strarted the refer madness campain.

in WWII era you could pay your taxes with a hemp crop. oh and btw everyones favorite general, George Washington, was a hemp farmer. so put that in your big fat ass pipe and smoke it.

We should look at source of supply not distributers.
Americans are naive, government knowingly let the main suppliers move free. among them are these judges, police chiefs, the multi billionaires and other high ranking figures.
They don't touch them so that prisons can be fill and government get money. The prison system is a business run by criminal enterprises along with the feds. They make money out of it while poor men and women spent years behind bars. The best way is to educate our children to stay away from that and if they don't find a way, they can close their bloody business. If there is no drugs, prisons shall be empty, that mean many judges shall be laid off, these contractors looses money and many other prison workers shall loose these jobs.. practically speaking, it is up to us to close the door from that. Most people don't know the secrets behind this criminal business enterprise run by feds.
teach and re-educate your kids about drug dangers and we should live by example.

Ever notice the anti cannabis people never have credible evidence to back up their ridiculous assertions. Bust your ass sounds like a typical redneck pig who must be a real big hit at parties! By the way there is no such thing as pot 'addiction.'

We should decriminalize weed. Third ticket and you're deemed an addict. Then you get to pee in a cup once a week until you stay clean for 12 months. When you go to the pee palace, you have to stand in line like at the DMV. While you are waiting you can watch the large screen LCD T.V. with videos of beheadings and mass graves of the 28,000 Mexican People who have died in the past year in this victimless crime. I don't care if you legalize it, there is a black market for everything including booze and cig's. As long as you can shave the tax you'll find a buyer.
I don't oppose anyone being free to smoke their lives away. It just cuts the competition down in the real world Andy. What I can't get wrapped around is how you don't get a buzz-kill when some low life stuff's a baby with tar to smuggle it over the border so you can get your fix.

The fault dosen't lie with "smugglers" or users. It lies with the closed-minded. Marijuana has proven to be useful in many different cases. Maybe one day someone very close to you will get some kind of cancer and not be able to get the medical marijuana they need to give back their appatite or to take away the pain. Then how will you look at it? If everyone was as closed-minded as you, this country would be taken over by Nazi's or something. No person ever in history will stop people from smoking weed. Ever. The only reason people think so bad of marijuana is the government and their propaganda. If Obama had a brain in his head, he would create a BILLION dollar indusrty in America. That would put a couple MILLION of people back at work. Wake up people. Freedom isn't free. Everyday the government tries to take away more and more rights of it's own people. You wanna know what I say, I say fuck America. It's nothing but a big chunk of land full of old people and old rules. "Don't smoke weed and have a good time. Go buy a bottle of booze and beat your wife and kids, or go drive down the highway and kill innocent people." One day I'll run for president and set everything straight. HAHA. Someone needs to get this country back on track.
Jeez

Bill, think OUTSIDE the box. Pot dosen't finance crime. If pot was legal. There would be no pot-related crime. No smuggling. No possesion charges. Nothing. The only reason we have so much crime is because it's illegal. Supply and demand. I demand pot, someone has to supply it. It's kinda like the black market. I will keep buying it(as will billions of americans) and keep smoking it. All this fuss over a plant. Timber companies would've bankrupted if hemp would've remained legal. They started making up lies about some woman slaying her family after smoking "the demon plant". Here's where the term "reefer madness" comes in to play. All because some money hungry fat fucks wanted to keep their wallet stuffed.
