control over quality and additional tax revenue

Not a "dangerous" drug. We waste too many tax dollars on marijuana enforcement. It is a waste. Marijuana was made illegal on ZERO medical facts. A company didn't like the competition so they pushed a bill to make it illegal. Legalizing it will diminish the mexican drug cartel greatly. Hopefully, destroy it since marijuana is it #1 cash crop.

Our country already has a lazy work force and lower productivity, why increase it by creating a lot more "legal" pot heads?

You have no historical proof for your statement, maybe you can make a case that the person you are talking about was lazy to begin with, but there is no evidence that marijuana causes someone to become lazy. Another comment from someone that believes every thing someone tells them. I got some ocean front property in Arizona I can make you a good deal on.

It is not a good use of resources for our police officers to arrest and charge individuals for smoking marijuana or for having marijuana in their possession. I would like our police officers to spend their time arresting people who COMMIT CRIMES AGAINST OTHERS. For example; those who assault, burglarize, menace, steal, kidnap or break into others property. In addition our police officers time would be best served protecting the people from those who have the SERIOUS POTENTIAL TO HARM OTHERS. For example; those who are driving under restraint, driving without a valid license, driving recklessly, driving under the influence of alcohol, or unlawfully carrying a weapon.

Agreed. But not legalizing it has done nothing to control it, has not reduced violence - nothing.

It's a lesser threat than alcohol. I also think the plant applications could be a much eco friendly alternative than much of our current timber industry.

Its less dangerous than alcohol and it could be regulated and taxed. Plus unlike alcohol it has a medicinal benefit

I believe adults should be able to make the choice for themselves if they want to use-medicinally OR recreational-a PLANT. After all, CANNABIS is far safer than alcohol & that scourge on families and society is what is the problem with those who cannot get off the REEFER MADNESS propaganda? Are we not enlightened enough in this day & age to see the idiocy of spending billions fighting a War on Drugs that has been a COMPLETE FAILURE, incarcerating millions for what amounts to a FLOWER., wasting money we should be spendig doing positive things instead of chasing marijuana users &'s harmless and industry doing amazingly well in the tough economic times!

A)This drug which I do not use but know people who do is clearly less harmful or addictive than other legal drugs like tobacco or alcohol.
B)Many good citizens use this drug, let's make some tax dollars from it to support the lagging economy of our municipalities.
C)We can take the crime and cartel out of this drug and make it safer to use and safe to produce and distribute.
D)If marijuana is illegal then make alcohol and cigarettes illegal too.

I feel a man or woman should be free to choose alternatives such as cannabis, for medical use of coarse. But also responsible persons over the age of 21 should not be restricted from use of cannabis on a recreational basis either. In my opinion weed is less impairing than alcohol, and far less dangerous.

It's an incredibly helpful medicine and the people who use it for recreation do less harm to society than people who use alcohol.

Marijuana Cures Cancer. US Government Has Known Since 1974.

September 01, 2010

(Includes 2 videos with instructions for making cancer cure "Hemp Oil")

The ominous part is that this isn’t the first time scientists have discovered that THC shrinks tumors. In 1974 researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, who had been funded by the National Institute of Health to find evidence that marijuana damages the immune system, found instead that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice — lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia.

The DEA quickly shut down the Virginia study and all further cannabis/tumor research, according to Jack Herer, who reports on the events in his book,“The Emperor Wears No Clothes“. In 1976 President Gerald Ford put an end to all public cannabis research and granted exclusive research rights to major pharmaceutical companies, who set out — unsuccessfully — to develop synthetic forms of THC that would deliver all the medical benefits without the “high.”

In 1983 the Reagan/Bush Administration tried to persuade American universities and researchers to destroy all 1966-76 cannabis research work, including compendiums in libraries, reports Jack Herer, who states,“We know that large amounts of information have since disappeared.”

The New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times all ignored the story, even though its newsworthiness is indisputable: a benign substance occurring in nature destroys deadly brain tumors.
