Someone drinking will drive fast and perhaps run a red light. A marijuana smoker stops for green, LOL. Seriously, I'd rather ride in a car with someone who has smoked a joint than ride with someone who has been drinking. I do neither, (drink alcohol or smoke pot), but I think if alcohol is legal, then so should marijuana be legalized. I've never been drunk in my life, nor have I smoked a joint, just someone who has seen what alcohol can do to a person and their families. From my observation, a pot smoker doesn't hurt anyone. The only thing wrong with it that I can see is that it is illegal.

Marijuana has never killed anyone, and it is the only drug you can't overdose on. It does not have a death profile.(unlike cigarettes). There is emerging evidence that it is benficial for several health conditions. It has only been illegal for a short time in history. It has been used for medicine and recreation for thousands of years. It was lies and propaganda of Harry Anslnger, and the newspaper owner Hearst, that pushed lies through the senate to make it illegal to begin with. Anslinger became rich and powerful when he started the war on drugs. Making way for the DEA. Now billions of tax dollars go toward prosecuting and incarcerating marjuana users. We have the largest prision population of anyone in the world. Most of them, also being victims of prejudice, like black and hispanic. People we are bankrupting our country so the judicial and penal system are getting rich. Hell, even the GEO STOCK (formerly Wackenhut), is based on how many people are incarcerated. See NORML.org for more info.

To me it's like the law saying that you HAVE TO wear your seatbelt and yet motorcycles are still on the road. If you really think about that it makes no sense. So if you can buy beer you should be able to buy marijuana.

There is no reason for marijuana to be illegal, it just creates an unnecessary black market controlled by violent criminals and robs the american people of much needed tax revenue.

I think mostly gay people smoke dope. It helps take the pain away where their asses hurt from sexual gratification.

people who suffer from a variety of illnesses, could find a happy medium, without going to pain clinics, without getting addicted to medicines that was made for cancer patients,that way if they ever get to where they realy need them they will still work for them.and lets not forget the jails,lets put the real criminal behind bars,not the ones sitting around smoking a joint,not bothering no one justgetting over the stress of the day, and chilling out.

many people smoke even some of people enforcing the laws. there are many uses for marijuana like medical,food,sleeping,hemp,and other things. an i do believe it would stop a lot of crime.

I've smoked marijuana. I really do not see the need to lump it with other illegal or legal drugs. It was fun. I have never killed anyone and once I was pulled over for a tail light while high and of course I was driving just fine. I have experimented with many drugs and I feel if any should be legalized, not just medicinally, marijuana would be my first choice. Of course, it hasn't yet but at one point herion was an over the counter medication just like cocaine was put in coca-cola and sold as a numbing agent. I do not understand the big marijuana scare, but I truly believe that most critics have typically not tried it and that anything they do not perceive to directly benefit society or have some "purpose" is discouraged. I definitely believe marijuana should be sold over the counter to whomever wishes to smoke it.
