Leave it where it is and simply build more prisons. Construction is the lifeblood of our economy.

You are a complete idiot why should some one who enjoys a safe substance then both Beer or Alcohol be in prison? Do you have any clue that all the facts are now out there that Pot is not what the government told you it was. The idiot that helped pass the law making it illegal at the first part of last century also claimed one important reason to make it illegal was because "it made blackie think he was as good as the white man" This was the governments lead guy. The truth was all economical, Dupont had just invented nylon and its main competitor was the Hemp industries so they spread false propaganda to panic the naive people of the day to ban its use. We are the only civilized country not helping our farmers by allowing them to at least grow the male version of the plant for its industrial uses. Its small brained thinking like yours that shows how uneducated people are on the topic. Do some research then leave comments on a subject.

I was going to respond to your reply. But then I read it completely and carefully. And realized what an utter waste of time that would have been. Dupont, black people and nylon. You're much too intelligent for me to tangle with.

Could be regulated like alcohol and would generate tax revenues while destroying the black market demand.

Ok, you tell me you understand the connection between Dupont, the black man and nylon as a realistic summary of the issue. And the issue, my good friend, is not HOW it became illegal so many years ago, but is legalizing it now a positive step for the future.

I know all about the hemp farmers plight in those years. That is not the argument raised in it's defense in the present time.
And this fine scholar attacked my integrity first for no real reason, eye for an eye. You wanna civil debate, try a little civility. Dude.

You are correct. And for all we know he might have just watched family guy. Or it could be what he's pieced together based on everything he knows. No way to tell. I just didn't like the fact that you didn't state your opinion on the issue. I will explain mine, if you so wish in return.

My opinion is simple and it's reasoning is valid enough for me.

I have a 30 year old son who doesn't smoke pot. I do and in 40 years haven't had any problem getting it.

I would prefer my son not have it any easier than me, knowing that if he chooses to, it is readily available and will be for the rest of human history. But leave the current hurdles in place. It is somewhat self regulating, humans by instinct cherish their addictions and will abuse any length of rope you give us.

I'll back of the satire, make the fines higher. Americans do not think of prison much. But they are obseessed with the quality of free life. Put 'em in prison and they'll become depressed. Take away their car, steak dinner and big screens and make them sit at home alone with the family and they'll become violent.

Increase the fines, leave the sentences where they are and let those who want to do it use their cunning and wits to obtain it. It makes us smarter.

So for my son's sake and my grandkids, leave it where it is. Drug violence? I'll buy him a gun for Christmas and a big box of ammo. But I'm not giving him a pound of pot for the holidays.
