What about beer dear or wait what about legal drug dealers like doctors I spose their not part of the gateway myth. For your information when the republicans were having their debates for a presidential nominee one of the candidates stood up and said its time to change the drug policies in the U.S. and a conservative crowd roared in a approval. Again propaganda has brain washed your mind into believing in something that is not necessarily true or even fair to argue. We go to football games where its worshiped like a god and whose advertising ah beer companies maybe we should make them scapegoats for all thats wrong in the world and mean while we will pay drug addicts to bust other drug addicts. Our tax dollars support a drug war with the enemy being the biggest consumer from this to that and we want to blame pot. America the greatest crooked country in the world.

I totally agree! How many car accidents do you hear about because someone was high compared to drunk? How many people do you hear become violent and abusive when high compared to drunk? If alcohol is legal then marajuana should defintely be!

I completely agree it should be legal and not just for "medical" use.

I've smoked "weed" before and never thought of touching anything else. It hasn't killed anyone or caused the death of anyone. Alcohol does and so does cigarettes, yet both are legal!

Not to mention how much money will be brought in to the government from legalizing it! BILLIONS gained, and billions saved from wasting money on busting people with a joint or a small bag.

Even if the states legalize it, you still have federal to deal with. I'm sure once all states legalize it the federal government will too once profits start coming into the states.

If weed was as bad as some "claim" it to be, states wouldn't be legalizing it.:P

Many arrests and convictions that are listed in the news are under OVI this is operating vehicle impaired, this is often pot, scrips, heroine, can even be texting. I would think at least Laura would know this, I mean she says she had even started cop academy, lol. Yes, lots of people cause accidents after smoking pot, it does impair your judgement and reaction time, so, are you saying smoke and don't drive, or are you saying smoke, and you can still get in a two ton vehicle and take off?

problem is once impaired then you don't have the judgement to not drive, so we have a legal product that you are to not use and drive, we can see how well that has worked out, so let's legalize another product that you should use and drive, lol

Well you would be 1 out of 1,000 then. Ask any convicted felon what they started with, and see what they tell ya. Ohhhhhh dudeeeeeeee light me up another maaaan. lmao Burn up some more brain cells their cupcake.
The greatest majority of convicted felons drank. I'd also venture a guess the the majority of violent offenders never smoked pot in their lives. Most consider themselves Christians or Muslim. Ohhhh Goddddd hold my hand while I puke my guts out! Destroy that liver as you kill ten times as many brain cells with every six pack. Geez what an idiotic post.

If marijuana was legal, fewer people would risk incarceration by using harder illegal drugs. It's sadistic to not consider legalizing for medical purposes and illogical to outlaw something that is no more addictive that a chocolate candy bar!

I would advise you to be careful with what you consume, your brain cells are so few you haven't any to spare.

LOL oh yes I know it all since the ORC book changes every few months if not before, my ORC book is just 1 series of out of date books but magically changes to be up to date.

But to answer that question, yes I did know being "high" while driving can be a DUI or an OVI. If they caused an accident while high they were high on something other then just "weed". The police probably just found weed on them and just assumed it was the cause.

I'm still all for legalizing it, I've not known a single person who smokes it to become impaired or slow on reaction. If anything I've seen those people be quicker to noise or sudden movement. Only impairment I seen was people becoming lazy and wanting to just sit and eat because they were relaxed not because they couldn't move.

People can debate this until they are blue in the face but it will eventually be legal in most if not all 50 states. Then I can smile and say ha ha! Only reason I do not smoke it is because it is illegal and costs more then what I'm willing to pay to get it.

Can't forget farms who work so hard only to be dumped on by fucked up weather changes lately and already made little as it is. They wouldn't have to rely on food stamps or medicaid because they would make a lot by growing and selling weed products!

I would imagine that even if it is legal we will still have a growing number of people who claim to need SSI and get it when the only thing wrong with them is a broken finger or foot.

or those like you who pop out babies like there is no tomorrow in order to get SSI checks, food stamps, health care, etc. Really, Laura, what is the going SSI rate for four kids with no daddy these days? and what IS the qualification for food stamps and medical assistance?

You know what's funny is you don't hear of people over dose on marijuana. . The worst thing you got to worry about weed is someone eating all your food. You know why people and go to rehab for weed. It's bc it's safer then any other drug including most prescriptions. It's funny how all you dumb a$$es who bitch about weed. The only reason your putting your two cents in is bc your life is so lame and boring you like to start drama. Get over it. It's going to be legal every we're sooner or late SO GET OVER IT.

What data do you base this assumption on? Aspirin is a drug, but it doesn't cause one to lose his ability for rational thought. I challenge you to show me one scientific study that proves the use of Marijuana,(Not THC ) has such an effect on a consumer that it cause the consumer to lose his ability to make rational decisions.

Quite watching those "Reefer Madness training videos! They were debunked decades ago. Truth, not opinion based on heresay or Rhetoric.

You are too stupid to for logic, therefore you resort to irrational generalizations that are impertinent to the topic. TROLL ALERT! Crawl your simple ass back under the bridge. You never worked a day in your life, admit it your wife works while you sit around the burning barrel with all your drinking buddies, hiding from the cops because you owe so much back child support from all you prior marriages. Good luck in the future finding a liver donor!

What are some of the immediate effects of smoking marijuana?
Some immediate physical effects of marijuana include a faster heartbeat and pulse rate, bloodshot eyes, and a dry mouth and throat. No scientific evidence indicates that marijuana improves hearing, eyesight, and skin sensitivity. Studies of marijuana's mental effects show that the drug can impair or reduce short-term memory, alter sense of time, and reduce ability to do things which require concentration, swift reactions, and coordination, such as driving a car or operating machinery.
Are there any other adverse reactions to marijuana?
A common bad reaction to marijuana is the "acute panic anxiety reaction." People describe this reaction as an extreme fear of "losing control," which causes panic. The symptoms usually disappear in a few hours.
What about psychological dependence on marijuana?
Long-term regular users of marijuana may become psychologically dependent. They may have a hard time limiting their use, they may need more of the drug to get the same effect, and they may develop problems with their jobs and personal relationships. The drug can become the most important aspect of their lives.
What are the dangers for young people?
One major concern about marijuana is its possible effects on young people as they grow up. Research shows that the earlier people start using drugs, the more likely they are to go on to experiment with other drugs. In addition, when young people start using marijuana regularly, they often lose interest and are not motivated to do their schoolwork. The effects of marijuana can interfere with learning by impairing thinking, reading comprehension, and verbal and mathematical skills. Research shows that students do not remember what they have learned when they are "high".
Love the way you toss scientific studies in there to make your rhetoric sound more like fact. Scientific studies have contradicted themselves when it comes to the studies of the effects of marijuana. It depends on the source. Of course if you stick a monkey in an air tight enclosure and pump pot smoke in you will get these effects! It's called oxygen deprivation.

Nice how you include what benefits marijuana DOESN"T provide. That is irrelevant.

Panic! I've known only one person who experience this while smoking pot and he had a history of mental illness to begin with. He freaked out because he believe all the fairy tales and though he was going to overdose.(Not possible) Far for your insinuation that this is a common occurrence.

Psychological Dependency is a way to define anything that is liked without causing Physical Dependency. Harmless!

You delve into the effects of long term use by preceding each symptom with the term, "may cause." Lacks any responsibility of verification, therefor these too are based on invalid assertions.

I quote, " Research shows that the earlier people start using drugs, the more likely they are to go on to experiment with other drugs." Yes research does show that addictive personalities can develop in adolescence, that's why regulation is included in the laws regarding legalization. No one in endorsing legalization for minors.

I don't know about any of you but I sure as hell have never had any "anxiety" from smoking marijuana. My father used to be an alcoholic and I watched him die more and more everyday. He was out of my life and in and out of jail and rehab for years. Since he quit drinking, he is a heavy pot smoker and I thank god everyday for putting it on our earth. Quit being so "1920's" people, you think if it was killing people and "addictive" like some of you morons make it out to be they would be legalizing it? You think they would FIRST legalize it for MEDICAL PURPOSES? Get your heads out of your asssses and think for once. Marijuana is not a gateway drug, who you choose to hang out with and try is what the gateway is. Being drunk is what makes people disoriented and causes them to do things they wouldn't normally do, makes them forget things that happened, makes them black out! And you are against marijuana? Its completely natural, it was put on this earth for a reason, to help. The only reason everyone is against it is because it's illegal, so I cannot wait until the day more and more states legalize it and all of you are shut up. Everyone wants to find a cure to cancer but no one agrees with a method of helping a cancer patient with pain. Do you understand what I mean? All you close minded individuals that come on here and rant on and on about how pot heads are terrible, are the cause of all the junkies in this town, you should be ashamed. It's the one thing that is happening in this country that is a positive change thank god for Obama. Thank you god.
