I don't smoke it and if politicians make it legal, I still won't smoke it. Most all folks are that way. So now, politicians, legalize it and use the tax money for something good........INSTEAD OF PUTTING IT IN YOUR POCKETS !!!!!

The prohibition of cannabis by the federal government is unconstitutional under the 9th and 10th amendment.
Amendment IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Amendment X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

How about crack, meth, heroin etc, shouldn't they be legal also? Why stop at cannabis? It seems to me a lot of those on the the "lets do away with criminalization" don't seem to have the "stones" to advocate for all drugs. Why? They like pot. What about the crack head, shouldn't you be helping them out too? It just seems cowardly to me, for this group not to include the other drug users.

For over 17 years the Mullins-Tisdale Crime Ring sheltered dope houses and allowed illegal dope sales to go on in Oakland. Dead dog scams, transmission scams and shot badge scams--this was the menu of government in Oakland. The notorious stool pidgeon Presson was instrumental in bringing forth the the information on all criminal activity, that for over 17 years the mullins Tisdale Crime Ring wreaked upon the good citizens of Oakland. The horrendous impositon of the Mullins-Tisdale Crime Ring is still apparent with the debate promoting the legalization of illicit substances! Will no one rid us of the meddlesome influences of the Mullins-Tisdale Crime Ring which for over 17 years had it's deviant way with the citizens of Oakland. Out damn spot! I say out with the Mullins Tisdale Crime Ring!

logical nextstep from arlington, not memphis, who could have known there were two, or more likely a fool using my name! Regarding his post, he is actually correct regarding most of what he says about mullins and tisdale. Both are now convicted felons (mullins 3 felony convictions), other than their probation, I think we are done with these two. This doesn't mean some of the damage they did won't take time to repair, but they are just bad memories now, nothing more than a couple of old convicts. Why waste time with a post like that?

This continual obsession you have with Mullins or Tisdale is making you sound more and more like some jilted lover! If they have upset you so much, why not confront them one on one, or simply face the fact you were thrown over a woman?
Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for this same kind of obsession.

Some time back I posted elsewhere earnestly asking if pot was actually good against pain. There were honest replies saying yes. But I finally gave in and recently had three vertabrae fused together in my back. When leaving the hospital I was given a "drug" prescription for pain. I can understand the post above but it's a rather broad statement. At times drugs are rather necessary and, of course, children have to be taught wisely. I still haven't tried smoking it, mainly because I don't know where to buy it.

The law does more harm than good. Legalize pot and use the money saved to go after meth dealers with a vengence.

So you don't want legalization of a naturally growing substance, but you'll let your doctor put any FDA-approved garbage into your kids if they say it will help them turn into a drug-addicted zombie who will grow up misaligned and unstable and potentially snap and shoot everyone?

How many of you "mothers" are on prozac, pain meds, lyrica, etc..that have a TON of side effects such as drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, even DEATH??

Oh that's right, it's okay to take those because the GUBMINT tells you it's okay.

Anyone here drink alcohol? Ever get drunk? It's a DRUG.
Anyone smoke? Nicotine is a DRUG.
Anyone drink coffee? Caffeine is a DRUG
Ever drive drunk or buzzed?

Nicotine addiction has been studied to be worse than heroin addiction when you try to kick it cold turkey, I've been there..shakes, sweats, nausea, headaches just to kick a habit the government still approves because they make BILLIONS off of everyone's misery and even more by treating it.

How about educating yourself on WHY marijuana is illegal, it's not because it's a drug, or a "gateway" to other vices...it's because it DOES help with pain, helps with chemo patients overcome nausea and pain, glaucoma, and other ailments with no side effects and very little chance of addiction.

The reason is because the FDA can't regulate it and make money off of it (although they are realizing it now in Washington and Colorado), and because the original reason it was illegal was the paper industry was scared that hemp would take it over due to its long lasting qualities and other products that could be made with it, so they got in bed with the GUBMINT and created a propaganda machine that included the film "reefer madness".

So before you come posting here how pot smokers are "losers", look around you, if you drink, smoke, can't make it without your pot of coffee, you're just as big a loser as the pot smokers you crucify. The only thing pot does is help drive the price of Doritos up.
