Never any life threatening experiences short term and no where near the same fatalities as alcohol. People fought to drink alcohol and won no matter how evil and bad it was. Mary Jane no where has it ever caused liver problems, convulsions, and black outs like alcohol does. To me it doesn't even make any sense why it's legal and pot isn't. no sense to me at all.....................

No actually most people start with 2 legal drugs, alcohol and tobacco, this is from someone who smoked marijuana for 12 years and quit. Guess what? I tried alcohol and cigarettes way before anything else! So in my experience, along with everyone else I've known cigarettes and alcohol are usually the top 2 drugs that are used first. Besides if you want to complain about gateway drug, look at caffeine, they even at high school, and any kid of any age can buy and caffeinated beverage.

Exactly, in your case caffeine, pain pills, alcohol, tobacco, and any over the counter medication should be criminalized. Great thinking!

The reason pot is a gateway drug is because the same dude you get it from has all this other stuff available. Turns out the government was wrong about the ganja. They lied to us so why not try this meth right? Maybe they were wrong about this too. Wrong

I could go on and on about the tax benefits and the reduction in enforcement costs....I find it hard to understand why alcohol (a manufactured substance) is legal and Pot (can be grown in the back yard) isn't? The funniest thing about my view is I don't smoke pot, nor would I if it were legal!

It is harmful substance to the body and addictive - many times leads to use of more dangerous drugs.

Marijuana is a huge problem already... why add to it? Yea so i get the whole "Medicine" thing, but with each supporter of Marijuana you endanger the lives of my fellow classmated who probably would get addicted soon after and would be dead in the next few years or so. I care about my family and the health of my friends enough to oppose Marijuana. Seriously if you agree with Marijuana, then you are killing kids with each vote.

What is wrong with you?!!!!!!!!! I know someone who done this crap and now his life is ruined. He has no house, no car, and no family or jobs left. I see him on the side of the road trying to get a ride or holding up a piece of cardboard tryin to find someone stupid enough to give him something to eat. You know why? Because he made the most stupidest decision in the first place. He started the addiction when he got hurt in an accident and the so called "doctor" gave it to him as a "remedy" and he has been buying it ever since. This drug should !!!!!!!NOT!!!!!!!!!! be legalized or tolerated in any way, shape, or form!!!!!! This is a stupid drug and will ABsolutely RUIN YOUR LFE!!!!!!!! If you were on it and you stopped God bless you. You just saved your life. And btw: That man i was speaking of...hes dead of O.D and marijuana poisining. Think about that you freaks!!!!
