never in the history of civilization have drugs been even a coincident factor to the downfall of the collective. data suggests that they only enhance life and provide for medicines otherwise not found in nature.

the only thing we need to make illegal is greed.

If alcohol is legal and more dangerous than weed, then weed should be legal.

Anti-Anxiety drugs make companies millions, pot is a proven anti anxiety self remedy. Its the drug companies that secrectly lobby congress to oppose legalization.

This is supposed to be the land of the free. That means do what you want that doesn't impinge on anyone else!

Also we could use the tax money more than the cost of prosecution and jails.

This is the land of the FREE. That means do what you like unless it hurts someone else!

The ecconomics helps too. Taxes not jail bills!

come on people... cigarettes are legal and kill hundreds of thousands of people in our world each year....in the US the number of recorded deaths from marijuana are...0! and look at our prison systems especially in VT...over 50% of people in VT prisons are in there just for a small possestion of weed. thus we are letting out murderers rapist and child molestars to make room for people who like to smoke some weed. however i dont believe in legalizing all drugs like coke heroin meth etc. but come on...a little weed never hurt anyone. plus why would God put it on the earth if it didnt have some sort of meaning...

yes I think it is with me right to legalize marijuana in Burlington Vermont. It is no different than drinking alcohol if you ask me.I would like to know the difference between drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana which one is worse for you I would like to see some kind of comparison on a television or something written up on it on the news and the newspaper or some kind of local paper. Thank you

That taxing and regulating a non addictive plant that has a thousand good purposes, including its recreational qualities, is still being debated is ridiculous. Legalize it already.
