Yes. It makes no sense that marijuana is illegal. Especially so when considering the facts about what already is. Alcohol by comparison is far more intoxicating. It loosens inhibitions, heightens aggression, and interferes with motor function. Side effects include death. Tobacco, by comparison is highly carcinogenic, terribly addictive, and again, deadly. Marijuana has none of these effects. Therefore, it makes absolutely no sense for it to be illegal. People want to smoke it? I say go right ahead. Its a more responsible decision than what the legal options currently are and that's the truth!

There is no rational basis for prohibition of such an innocuous substance, and quite a long list of reasons to legalize it.

So typical. You guys always seem to think anyone in support of legalization must be a hippie, liberal, dreg, or all of the above.

I'm sorry, Eric has been having some emotional problems lately. I'm sure some cheesy poofs will make him feel better. Maybe you have munchies and want some too?

The only reason it isn't is because of lobbyists for competing industries over the years.

Just for economic reasons alone Marijuana should be legal. The sales tax on marijuana could help short falls in government and at the same time removed the burden of paying officer, court systems, and incarceration of people in jails. Then there is also the issue of putting drug cartels out of business in Mexico, Isn't that one of the reasons for illegal immigrants coming in to America, because it is dangerous to live around these drug cartels? Here in America, a new crop for farmers, resins can help solve the petroleum plastic problem, use of an old source of omega3. The list of benefits goes on for a while.

Taking the profit out of the product for the Mexican drug gangs would be the resulting benefit. Of course, this will never happen because illegal drugs is how some say the Government finance Black Ops.

It is about time we pulled our heads out of the sand and embraced the benefits from this action. No more seedy drug dealers and we have extra tax money in the coffers for our community.

Because I don't support funding Mexican cartels. I support freedom of choice and believe the use of cannabis is a personal civil right.
