These drug laws are so ridiculous, how far back do we have to go to find a president who has never smoked pot. I see these kids who get caught and have their life derailed over a drug arrest and wonder who they might have become and what they might have done.

seeing how he has had the DEA and other federal agents raid more dispenseries and such twice as often as Bush, i would say he has not.

Since Obama took office, more states have went Medical or recreational. Since that time, Obama has gotten an even heavier hand in dealing with those states.

States rights issue? Not to Obama...

The tide is turning. One by one, states with huge budget deficits are trying to figure out how to honor their pension funds and pay their bills. They look at their bottom line and realize that not only can legalizing marijuana help their budget shortfalls, it will create jobs both commercial and agricultural. It's a win/win for everyone.

There is no logical or legitimate reason why alcohol is legal and marijuana is not. Never mind it's medicinal value, no one dies smoking pot but millions have died from the effects of alcohol. Our generation knows this but sadly, "Reefer Madness" is what most of the old white legislators think will happen if people smoke a joint. It would be funny if it weren't so sad.

Thanks a lot Mr. Hearst. In your efforts to make millions on your land, you demonized hemp in Reefer Madness to sell your trees and destroy one beautiful forest after another.

People who smoke pot might vote, and, then again, people who don't smoke pot might vote. It's all very confusing for Obama.

Marijuana has destroyed two generations of Americans with delusional, hallucinatory, self-validating thinking and weakness. The ineffectiveness, outright destruction and racism coming from a drug deluded President should be a wake up call. A relevant reporter would ask him if he's gotten his daughters stoned in order for them to become baby murdering slime like himself.

All legitimate short and long term scientific studies of marijuana's impact on humans show its destructive impact. You've just not done your research.

Fooling the endocrine system into lessening the production of certain brain chemicals because they are replaced by an inferior, slightly different substitute that impairs proper synapse firing is not good for people, or the babies they produce with altered DNA because of their drug use. We have an increase in the number of genetic flaws resulting in homosexuality because the hormonal levels of young women were changed by their marijuana use. Other increased percentages of genetic destruction can be seen in the increased incidence of everything from Downs Syndrome to Autism. You're long term effect on the genetic structure of humankind is negative even with your silly promotion of drug usage.
