It's less dangerous than alcohol.

If it was legalized there would be far less reason for users to have to turn to the dealers to buy it.
Most pot smokers smoke pot not crack or cocaine meth or heorin. Why force them to turn to dangerous people to get an oz of pot?

Take the profit out of it for the dealers and the drug cartels. Presently, it parallels alcohol prohibition in the 1920s, and it's not working either.

Spend the money used for locking up and searching for small users on the big drugs. This war on drugs was being fought when I was a kid and is still being lost. I would not be surprised if we have spent more then the national debt over the last 50 years trying to stop a naturally growing plant of North America from being used to get a buzz. My parents used to smoke corn stalks and buggy whips.There will always be something people will find for a diversion. Stop making the drug cartels rich....did the same thing to the mob in the 30's

Would be a new tax revenue and save a lot of law enforcement money. Prohibition didn't work and this isn't working either. Is marijuana worse than alcohol? I don't think so.

[QUOTE who="E. W. Story"]It always leads to more and harder drugs[/QUOTE]

That is not true whatsoever. If you follow that logic or believe it then you also have to follow the logic that says drinking beer always leads to harder alcohol and eventually alcoholism.

I have smoked weed off and on for 25 years. I have never done harder drugs, ever. I drink a few beers every other Saturday night and avoid hard liquor. I am successful in life and have a good life.

There are people that let weed control their lives, but no more or less then those who let alcohol.

People are always going to smoke pot. I know tons of people that if you saw them on the street, at work, or even at church you would think no way they do. But they do. It is far more common then people realize. A lot just choose to keep it a secret because it is illegal.

We might as well legalize it and tax it. In an economy where states are hurting for money the revenue that could be generated from taxing it would be phenomenal.

I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and I take very strong medicine to help me deal with it everyday. But the med's make feel like a zombie and lost. It does help and I've been on a lot of different meds to help with PTSD. The side effects are very bad too. I get more out of a 1 or 2 Joints a day then I do when taking 1,200 mg of my Seroquel a day plus two other meds that are for my Anxiety disorder, When I smoke I can go out and not be so worried about other people actions or have the flashbacks that I have. I just know that marijuana can be a good thing and Ks and Mo need to realize that is does have a lot of good qualities. I truly believe that both states should have it for medical use period. I think if Decriminalize and Legalize would make jobs in both states maybe in the use of hemp like paper/rope/ cloths, jobs in agriculture ,mediacl and it and It helps with green house gases or CO2.

It would and could be legal if people would learn to enjoy things responsibly. Always trash and bad apples giving everything a bad name. Next time you are mad because the government is trying to take another right away from you do something about it knock the heck out of the drunk driver, the guy that sits around and does nothing but smoke pot and steal all day, the people who get drunk and feel the need to then "BE A MAN" and fight so they can ruin everyone time these idiots that can't control themselves ruin everything the list could go on forever. I have been pot free for 2 years was successful then and still am.

If you legalize marijuana the government can tax it,and then the economy could very well be pulled back to the way it was many years ago. Another thing beneficial is the government doesn't waste anymore money over something so insignificant... Go get the heroin dealers!!!

Legalize it, regulate it, and tax it. Not only would it help pay off the national debt, it would also keep us taxpayers from forking out the money to house inmates that are locked up on marijuana charges. And the argument of weed being a gateway drug has been proven by scientists to be false. If anything it would be cigarettes or alcohol, which I'm sure anyone who's tried weed, has done 1 or the other first.
