to legalize the drug would enable users to purchase maryjane by the pack like cigs. would hurt the finances of the dealers as they could not peddle it on the streets. the jail overcrowding here in the middwest would be less. the cops could be freed up to catch real criminals like coke dealers etc.use the same law that applies to drunk driving when catching one under the haze (influence).whats the difference of driving while intoxed or alkied up?

The police need to focus on violent crimes to keep us all safe.

One problem though. How do you determine "how high" someone is? Would you want cops, firemen, bus drivers, etc... doing their jobs high? If you cant determine how much is in their system...how do you punish them like drunk drivers?

Yea, due to legal alcohol haven't you noticed all the cops, firemen, bus drivers, etc, coming to work drunk? Big problem. I'm worried about all the athletes that will come to play wheezing when they make cigarette's legal. Oh wait...

thats a good point and i agree but i think thats what a lot of people don't seem to comprehend-i for one do not want authoritative bodies;cops,teachers,fireman,b us drivers all high on dope working...this causes a high risk of accidents because people's judgement and performance will be impaired .....i understand why people are angry with drunk driving..it kills innocent lives
but as i said if authoritative bodies are doing their jobs high....initially there is a problem here what if they arrive somewhere (say in the event of an emergency) without something needed to rescue a life in danger cause they were all high on dope...that would be pretty dam sorry and low in my opinion ...good point im glad someone sees something the way i see it..but thats just to name a few problems i see that might arise...think about it people ...u DON'T want authoritative people doing there job high or drunk

agreed there certainly are, when people chose to get behind the wheel drunk....there not impaired in the manner that they don't know what they are doing but their motor skills are and they know they shouldn't be driving drunk and that it puts themself and others in a great risk for thier life...still they choose to do it
if more people just used their head then this problem wouldn't be what it is
as for marijuana,it does have medical purposes but if legalized then were going to have the quality and performance of authoritative jobs like cops,fireman,bus drivers and ect making stupid mistakes that in an emergency situation may end up costing lives instead of helping them....see my point
people need to be responsible with or without drugs

My point is you can find out just how drunk someone is when they are driving or showing up to work drunk. With weed you can't do that.

Personally I would get in a car & ride with someone on weed before I would someone drinking alcohol. Simple blood test can determine how much weed is in a persons system....

I was referring to all the cigarette butts you see everywhere. Smokers have no regard for the environment.
