<quoted text>Those who chose to smoke this drug are stupid and when they are caught get what they deserve. We have enough problems with out adding to them in society. I will vote NO.. I would rather pay for more undercover officers for these lowlifes using drugs. I have seen too may childrens lives be messed up because the parents are spending their money on pot. I say grow up and spend your money on better things then pot and cigarettes that are ruining your health too!
Confused citizen,

So you are a socialist. Can I count on you to vote for Persident Obama next election?

We are already becoming a socialist do nothing country anyway. Why not bring on the drugs to medicate us all day. Our president was a stoner in his high school days.
I would rather have a President that smoked weed and can read than the brainless Republicans like Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Michelle "bat shit" Bachmann, Michael Steele, and others.

rand paul is very much alike ron paul. and i know that ron paul is an advocate of the decriminalization of pot. and lumping his name in with the likes of sarah palin, etc. only shows your ignorance.

btw your weed smoking president does nothing to decriminalize it, but he found the time to rape our tax dollars for the ceo's of the major banks and had the insurance companies right up that awesome health care bill.

Knowitall19-Get a clue. Even if your comments were funny which they're not, your comments making light of a subject you obviously know NOTHING about, your comments are a perfect example why the ignorance about marijuana continues. Your name "knowital19" says it all. You've got a lot of growing up to do yet. I am having to take Morphine tablets for chronic back pain when I would rather try to treat my pain with marijuana but can't because of the politics involved. What the hell is a gateway drug anyway? No science to back that theory up at all. Learn the difference between a "correlation" and cause and effect.Do you think sex is a gateway drug, almost every addict has had sex? I think the laws against pot expose the users to drug dealers who offer them harder drugs. No law, no profit for dealers, no street corner dealers when you can grow your own. If marijuana led to addiction, I guess a lot of us who smoked marijuana in the past including some past presidents should all be heroin addicts now huh? Please people! I can't believe we even have to debate this issue. Remember Prohibition which failed and helped establish organized crime.

You are really sounding like an idiot. Have you ever heard of history? or books? Your post is so full of false information I wouldn't know where to start to educate you.Are you for real or just posing as a fool. Do you even know what the health care bill is? Do you even know what political party pres Obama belongs to? Do you know HE is the one trying to reign in the banks and Wall Street and insurance Co.s and NOT Republicans? Wow, we are in trouble if you have had an education in the US.

That's "KIA9" - And I happen to think that some of my quips are butt slappin' funny - I personally don't care which way the vote goes - Just stating my many opinions - Keep the convo going - The more that read this stuff , the more that will be informed , one way or another - I would rather have the morph than the shots I take in my spine , so I can sympathise with you just a bit - Stay calm - It'll be all right eventually -

do you like to believe everything they feed you? obama is on the same side as bush, money. he hasn't done anything about the war, healthcare, or the banks. but he's not the guy you should be concerned with. the federal reserve is the one in charge.

As long as you are willing to do the same for alcohol (far more intoxicating, lethal and addictive) and cigarettes then I think you may have a winning platform, lol.
