It's probably safer than alcohol and tobacco. I won't do pot and I won't have it on my property or vehicle or person as long as it's illegal but I think it should be legal for those over 18. Why not?! I also think 18 should be the age to drink. One can have sex at 18, die for our country at that age, smoke, star in, buy, or watch adult material, why not pot and alcohol?

I voted to support the legalization of pot. It wouldn't let me submit the vote. Here is my reason: It's probably safer than alcohol and tobacco. I won't do pot and I won't have it on my property or vehicle or person as long as it's illegal but I think it should be legal for those over 18. Why not?! I also think 18 should be the age to drink.

When I clicked support and gave my reason it didn't go through originally. For some reason my posts have submitted but are multiplied. Sorry about that Topix but it was your system that did that. I didn't post it more than once intentionally.

I believe marijuana is a less dangerous drug than alcohol and alcohol is legal. You hear of drunk driving and the deaths caused by it, but when was the last time you heard of someone dieing from marijuana use!?!

It seems like more people in the U.S. support pot smoking which is illegal than same-sex marriage which is legal in some places. I can only think that someone would oppose a legal (not religious) contract between two loving, consenting adults based on their personal religious views and/or hatred of gays. Wouldn't people who are religious be against pot smoking too? Seems like people have a lot of double standards.

I think consenting adults who are not hurting anyone else should be able to live their life they way they want. I don't care whether someone wants to marry the same sex, smoke pot, or buy a prostitute or star in a porn film. That's their business, not mine. I don't force my views or religious beliefs on anyone. I do follow the law though.

good point. I am all for the pot smoking thing, however I feel that the same sex marriage thing is kind of twisted and weird. Look at it like this- If 2 gay males are engaging in anal sex, it is spreading diseases from the feces. That is just plain nasty. And they want the world to know that they engage in that by getting married???(Men are suposed to marry women, not other men. The "rear end" is for getting rid of waste, an "exit only", not for being invaded by a penis- the vagina is designed for that!) It is a proven fact that anal sex actually causes infectious disease, and should not be attempted. Why don't people just go around scooping up dog poop and play with it like playdough? because its poop and it is nasty! but gays wanna stick thier 'thing' up another gays rear? That is nasty, nasty, nasty!(I hope that this post stirs up some controversy- thats what these forums are for!)

You really don't know what you are talking about as far as gays are concerned and they aren't sick and they don't play with feces, etc. They would be together whether they married or not so I can only see denying them marriage as society punishing and exacting revenge on a minority they disapprove of. You are going by a bunch of stereotype and lies you've heard. Straight couples aren't not prone to STDs and couples gay or straight who get tested and use protection can prevent diseases. Even many of those who disapprove of same-sex marriage do not feel as extremely as you do on the issue as far as the things you've said about the LGBT as a whole. Do you know that many heterosexual couples enjoy anal activity and that there are many gays who do not participate in anal intercourse? Educate yourself before you start spouting off nonsense. You just sound like a full fledged homophobe to me. Denying someone the rights of marriage just because you think it's weird is not right? No one is telling you you can't marry someone. Why should you have any say so in who else marries? At least you didn't use religion. I'll give you credit for that.

Same-sex marriage will exist in this entire country and federal recognized just like in Canada one day. It's going to happen eventually. I'm sure some people thought interracial marriages would never be allowed but they are.

Well i really don't care what gay people do, I just don't think that it should be glorified by plastering it on the news channels and the internet. I don't want to hear about it, as most straight people dont either. I cannot imagine why a man would want to stuff his penis in the rear of another man- that is just NASTY!!! Its like "here, lets force this thing in a deep dark hole full of poop because we can't find anything else to do" its like, come on! Can't the homo's just face the fact that they act like little girls, so why not just do it with a girl? I mean, REALLY!!! But no, they want to shove it into a mans butt full of stinky poop... Well each to there own, i guess- its just not for me. I find lesbians hilarious though, a woman dressing up like a man and acting all "butch" and all that. If they are against men, why do they use dildos which are basically a simulation of a penis??? LOL!!! go figure...

Whatever! You are very ignorant on the subject and don't know all what you are talking about and it gets exhausting giving the same rebuttals over and over to the same people like you who will never change your mind on it anyway. Most Americans are fair minded and don't feel as strongly about your views as you do. It's going to be on the news and online. There is really nothing you can do about it. If you don't like it don't read or watch it. Are you upset that a lesbian might prefer a woman over you or might not let you watch or join? Get over it!

Apparently a lot of homophobia exist in this country and I don't know why because what two dudes or two chicks do really doesn't concern or affect anyone else. Who cares who marries who? They should be protected under laws like anyone else and not be able to be fired from jobs or denied housing or services simply because they are gay. I'm sure there are many who will disagree on this though.

I oppose because I don't think ANY kind of drugs should be legal. All it does is ruin lives, tears families apart, and causes more crimes in communities over money and 'drug deals gone bad.' Just recently my husband's niece and husband were arrested and their 4 children taken into state custody due to drug addiction and unsafe/unsanitary environments. If they spent more time worrying about their children and their safety/health than drugs, they wouldn't be facing 20+ years and loosing their beautiful babies. DRUGS DON'T SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS, IT JUST MAKES THINGS WORST! You still have your problems after your high, only you're then broke and craving more drugs.

to angel, it sounds like there were more issues present with that arrest/child custody deal than just drugs. pot is not a drug, it is an herb that grows out of the ground that has many uses. if a person cannot handle it, then don't smoke it. if you have an alergic reaction from eating tomatoes, why would you keep eating them? i smoke pot daily and have no adverse effect from it. i have cancer and i absolutely refuse to get chemo treatments and pot takes away my pain, increases my appetite and helps to improve my mood. without it, i would suffer greatly. as far as children go, i don't have any and don't want any of my own. it clearly sounds like you had a bad experience with a family member and their 'drug use' but that doesn't mean that someone else should not be able to make up their own mind on what is best for themselves. i don't tell you how to wipe your butt, what kind of toilet paper you are allowed to use and i don't dictate what you are gonna wear to work or what church to go to, so don't push your NOBODY SHOULD USE DRUGS crap on me. its the users choice as to what the do or don't do. if you wanna play SAVE THE WORLD why don't you go picket in front of bars and take down the plate numbers of ALL the people who drive away drunk or become a bible teacher and ask god to cure my cancer so i can live instead of die. think about that for a minute.

As an adult with many pain problems which the goverment has regulated as dangerous. I am unable to get relief and there by live a life with many pains throughout my body. as a user of weed in my earlier years i learned the affects and reliefs of it. as well the negatives. you never saw a ;person in a fit of rage kill or other wise hurt any one on pot. It is not a gateway drug or i would have been addicted many times over. help us older as well younger folks in need of medical or even enjoyment of weed. better than a drunk or alchol as i have never heard of a person driving too fast on pot and it happens every day on alchol. time to open up the coffers and tax something many people would purchase and get this country out of debt. look at Colorado.
