Stereotype anyone? "For others, particularly those who say "man" a lot when they talk, the news is, like, "far out, man."

"For some, this trend sends the wrong message about drug usage and obeying the law."
Prohibition fills the drug lords coffers with untaxed cash and our legal system makes criminals out of productive citizens. Not every marijuana user is a hungry, lazy, mentally handicapped individual. The media glorifies the dumbest section of smokers and condemns athletes, musicians, and politicians for being users. Some people are born idiots and they happen to smoke. Some people are born idiots and they do not smoke.

Did we not learn anything from alcohol prohibition?
Marijuana prohibition has been an indisputable failure. Legalize it and take the money out of the black market. Marijuana is less dangerous than either alcohol or tobacco yet both of those substances are legal (and should be). Every year our prison system releases violent offenders to make room for non-violent pot smokers. That is just plain insanity. Think of how better society would be served if our law enforcement efforts were directed more towards dealing with violent individuals. We would also save millions of dollars on prosecution costs and jail expenses. Have you ever seen a "COPS" episode where the police were called out to an incident because someone was high on pot? How about because someone was on alcohol?
There is also substantial evidence indicating marijuana has numerous medical uses as well.
This is a plant, legalize it and regulate it. We need to look at this issue using nothing more than basic common sense. Isn't it time to drop the "Reefer Madness" stupidity?
