if you had actually read erinlyns posts, you would understand her point of view. she is not espousing legalization of all drugs, just marijuana. sorry you are too ignorant to read before you shoot off a post.
you are as dumb as a post!
you closet pot smoking troll!
I believe he/she might have a difficult time reading. Obviosly, the trolls can't spell or form a coherent sentence. I would also like to point out to the trolls' that I would smoke if my career wouldn't be effected. I get random drug tests.

I fail to see why marijuana shouldn't be legal-after all it is only a plant.Used for thousands of years by many different cultures throughout the world-it doesn't appear to have destroyed the world in the past few thousand years.
If it gives relief from the pain of arthritis,multiple sclerosis and a host of other medical conditions then it must be a good thing.
Recreationally,it is no worse than alcohol-the long term effects of abusing any substance-legal or illegal- are well documented.
I believe that one of the main reasons that it has remained illegal is that the governments of the world could not control it enough to tax it.
Distilling your own whisky takes a lot more effort and cost than planting a few seeds and tending them as you would any other plant till harvest time.
There will always be disagreements over the legalisation of marijuana.
I say legalise it and monitor it for 10 years-if there is an adverse social effect then gradually modify the law to make it legal but with closer controls.

Up here in Canada sometimes the cops take it away from ya, if you make them mad.

As for for 'grow your own' my best advice is keep it under 50 plants otherwise the Judge may give you a 100.00 fine. And pay your Hydro Bill too. They get madder than a hornet if you steal the juice!!

Unfortunately, banning a drug or item of any kind only leads to a blackmarket. If illegal drugs were legalized, it would help bust up the black gangs. Legalization would add dollars to the tax base, rather than take from it.

Just my thoughts on this issue.

The pharmaceutical industry has been denying the American public the medical benefits of Marijuana for their personal gain while the Judicial system has confiscated properties and arrested those that have done no harm in society for the riches of the lawyers and mental health and counseling industry.

Of course it should be legal due to following reasons:

1) According to WHO it's less dangerous for human body then alcohol and tobacco. If these drugs are legal then why marihuana is not?
2) People did, are, and will be using marihuana. so it's better if they do it legal and PAY TAXES to their country, then buy illegal and sponsor mafia.
3) Marihuana is proved to be curious for cancer
4) Marihuana tree is a rich source of cellulose. We can use it instead of cellulose from trees and save the forests and environment!
5) Legalizing marihuana will eliminate mafia growing
6) Buying legal stuff you are sure You will buy good quality stuff. Otherwise you can buy something strange, mixed with some chemicals, and destroy Your health ;/
7) Country can earn a lot of money on tourists (look at the example of Netherlands).
8) Example of Netherlands show that when something is legal is less atractive. After legalising light drugs in this country, using of them has decreased!
9) The prisons are overfilled, so why punish marihuana-users and destroy their future? It's better to have these places in prison for real criminalists (murders, thieves, robbers, rapers)!

I guess that there could be many more of these reasons.
Of course it should be legal only for adults (just like an alcohol).
Unfortunately in my country (Poland) it's also illegal, but at least thanks to Schengen Agreement we are able to go to Netherlands and buy everything we need there, and then bring it to our country without any problems ;-). It is only a pitty that our country is so stupid that it does not want to earn monay on this business. The Netherlands earns instead.

the government never likes to admit wrongs pot laws were established years ago to discourage mexicans or blacks from being any part of this great nation. well that plan worked out well. booze continues to caulse far more problems in this society. murder rapes & robberies are often done while under the influnces of hard drugs and booze. fear of jail caulses some potheads to act out violently survival is still a strong human behavior. if leagle more preson space would allow violent people could be incarserated. taxed inproved economy kids would be less tempted to try it, after teens don't respond to adults telling them not to, the mystery would be less intense. fewer kids experamenting
