From seed to display case, think of the amount of jobs it would create, not to mention revenue.

End the bloody drug war now. See the movie "Savages". Then either light up, or leave me alone.

Drugs create a nation of dopes, under-achievers, and add to an apathetic, clueless, uneducated, ill-informed, psychologically detached citizenry easily manipulated by smooth-talking Dictators because they've grown accustomed to being so lazy that they prefer other people doing the thinking for themselves unto the loss of their own freedoms and decimation of their own nation -- just as long as they can get their next hit! If you love your children or America you would never want them to have authority over the safety of Americans because they are inherently too self-absorbed to care about anyone else but themselves and their addiction and idleness.
Liberals, Socialist, and Communists are promoting the legalization of Marijuana to create more tuned-out, clueless, unaware voters that are easy to manipulate and command because the drug addict and marijuana addict inherently hates critical thinking and analyzing hard data for facts. Democrats depend on public idleness and the lazy so they can create a society of dependent in need of a hand out.
All these Pro-marijuana groups are only trying to destroy America's intellectual stamina and weaken the American society as a whole. It is all apart of a Communistic push toward creating an apathetic society that will elect dictators order them. This "stupid generation" will make light of everything important because they whave been psychologically program

Obama has already destroyed the credibility of the election process in America by no requiring a photo ID before voting. The degradation of America began with the degradation of its morality first.
Over two decades ago, Americans have been unaware of the communist strategy to topple America through Drug addiction, but Ronald and Nancy Reagan were aware. We must remember their legacy and follow their lead now more than ever. We have been unaware how Russian have been infiltrating America and used our universities to promote propaganda about how Marijuana is a harmless drug. In the book The Soviet Art of BrainWashing on page 22 it exposes the Communist intent to make the next generation drug addicted in order create the necessary conditions of idleness and worthlessness so that a communist regime can takeover as a nanny state, and take over more power from the people (with much of the populous oblivious and too apathetic and isolated in their addiction to push back against their agenda).
This is SUCH AN IMPORTANT ISSUE that even some leading conservatives especially libertarians are falling right into the Communist play book by supporting the Legalization of the gateway drug - Marijuana. What is the quickest way to create an apathetic, docile, easily controlled voter base?
Answer: Get there minds addicted to Drugs, Narcotics and Porn that they'll become too clueless to really care what is going in the world around them. All the liberals need are enough tuned-out voters they will be able to shift the culture to left in no time, because a drug addicted mind doesn't care about their own future let alone their nations future nor the value of truth. The drug addicted person is too self-absorbed and too idle to care about anything or anyone except their next hit!
This has got to be the most insane paranoid commentary I have read about cannabis legalization! You sir are no professor and a moron! You have failed to provide any credible evidence to back up your insane claims!

It's about freedom in one's own house. I don't smoke either, but don't care about others who want to do so in their own homes.
You're free to smoke MJ in your house and will be able to possess small amounts BUT getting caught driving is still a DUI and having MJ in your system on company premises,on company time will get you fired if you work in a drug free workzone and being subject to random testing. The issue headed to court is how far the state laws can go overriding Federal laws as the government still has MJ classified as a CLASS I narcotic. ABCNEWS.go.com/us/pot-laws-colorado-washingto...

Tell me, what is so much worse about adults smoking marijuana as opposed to adults drinking alcohol? Why do you seem to think that there is some magical property of THC which drives you to start smoking crack and shooting heroin? Using one substance cannot possibly make you crave another. That is not possible. It isn't the marijuana itself that is a gateway, that is just ridiculous. It is the prohibition, forcing marijuana users to buy their marijuana from shady drug dealers who often also push the harder stuff as well which is the true gateway. Why are you worried about people getting stoned when you don't care about people getting drunk even though it causes 10x more problems in society? Don't you think that is a little bit hypocritical?

Who would set the yes/no boundries on this?? Remember,the Feds still have MJ listed as a CLASS I narcotic. If you get caught in any Federal situation, the Federal laws will override state laws. That will take court action to overturn. Tread lightly when and where you use until that's decided.
