Having had experience with marijuana, I know it is not the dangerous intoxicant that the conservative right makes it out to be. Experience in Colorado shows how the states can benefit from the increased tax revenues cannabis generates...it is going to be bought and sold whether it is legal or not.

I agree. Tax and Sell it like liquor. Liquor has effects.. but it makes people either happy or mad intensified. Weed, it calms and mellows.. Something everyone could use in this world. Just have the same laws with alcohol with weed. No smoking and driving.. but don't be an A-hole about it was pull over anyone and everyone who could just be smoking a cigarette.

Marijuana is no more a drug then tobacco or alcohol. It should be an individual choice.

1. Our POT LAWS are driving people to do harder drugs, which do not show up on drug test after 3 days.

2. THIS DISCUSSION, in public can cause you to loose your job, your license, your family, your life?

3. Many large industries do not want any change in the current laws, because of their large profits.

4. The most dangerous thing about POT is the chance of being BUSTED.

5. POT is here, easier for our children to get than alcohol or cigarettes, because they are legal but regulated.

6. Pot laws are killing MEXICO, also funding huge ORGANIZED CRIME gangs.

7. Our POT lAWS are making US ALL MUCH LESS SAFE!

8. Don't agree? Post your arguement

"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this." - Albert Einstein quote on Hemp

Marijuana is in its prohibition period and will soon be legalized as the masses experience its effects. Baby boomers tried it and society has proven better for it. Not everyone trying marijuana will be a full blown heroin addict. Those wishing to abuse anything will do it at all costs. Marijuana allows people to get moderately high and still be able to function, unlike alcohol or texting which can totally wipe out all concentration.

I would rather see people smoking weed than them being on herion all noded out never heard some one rob them when they smoke weed. To bad our government could get out of debt if it was legal. It's 4:20 United Pot Smokers stand up for our right to smoke.

You may be surprised who smokes. I am an executive in STL and live 8 miles outside Belleville. I am very involved in my community. I have three wonderful children and married almost 20 years. My annual income is over 200k. Please don't stereotype marijuana users as what you see on metro. There are many responsible users medical or recreational. Should we stereotype all people who use alcohol as bums or alcoholics? In fact do some research comparing safety of alcohol compared to marijuana. I do not use alcohol btw.
