There is absolutely no reason why it's illegal. Liquor is far worse! The laws are screwed in this country when a pot dealer gets more time than a murderer. Legalizing it will calm Mexico's crap and will assist clearing out our U.S. prisons! Money can be made, the economy will benny, and so will the American public.murderor

People are getting murdered, kidnapped, extorted, and imprisoned over pot. Plain little old "pot" to name one.

I don't smoke it anymore, but the consequences of keeping it illegal certainly outweigh the harm done
by keeping illegal.

It's time to decriminalize marijuana.

Make a couple of billion dollars of tax money after it is legal and watch the scene change.

And remember Kids....smoke responsibly!

Prohibition creates black markets. Nature abhors a vacuum and the violent rush in to fill those needs. It's always been that way. Legalization removes the profit margin plus adds cash value crops for the US (hemp oil, fiber, methane and more).

I support decriminalization. Smoking or growing in your home is not a crime.

Regulat it and tax the hell out of it just like tobacco and alcohol.

A pot smoker always has money for more pot. And they always have a friend who always has weed.

At $800 a pound ($50 an ounce) is a pretty expensive hobby.
But it can go a long way to getting everyone in the room to become upholstery.

If it were legalized, the government could tax the crap out of it, retailers could profit off it, the smugglers and illegal peddlers wouldn't have to break international laws to get it here (it grows everywhere you plant it), local farmers could raise it, and tokers could still smoke, all at cheaper prices and no one's toes get stepped on except for the cartels down south killing everyone in the way. Then we would have the black market, but that's another thread.

The government would find some other place to waste our mega-money on the war on drugs and everyone is happy except the cartels who control drugs coming from Mexico.

By a show of hands, who wants the cartels
to keep doing what they do?

Take the obscene profits out of it and just make it little old pot again.

Hell, a stoned politician can't be any worse than the intoxicated/corrupted jugheads
running the country now.

Just take the insane profit out of weed and let weed do the rest.

I'm all for stopping illegal drugs getting people killed every minute.

But the way business is run now, people will continue to die by the thousands for illegal drugs and drug money.

$50. an ounce? Wow man, thats was the cost back in the 70's ands 80's. It a lot more now amigo. Way mor, but I donts buy it, I groes it.
So...what do I know? I don't hang with the
"cool kids" like in the day 30 years ago.
I hang with the cool kids 30 years later.

I got that money figure off the news.$800 a pound.
I always thought it was closer to 90 an oz.

My times have changed. I'd rather spend that cash on
very old sipping whiskey, and prime surf and turf for two.

With all due respect, I'm pretty sure the planet would still
be shooting, slicing, dicing, and detonating their ways to
selfish dominance with or without pot heads.

The most violent
places on the planet grow or make opium, heroin, hashish, pot, or some other very potent depressant and still, they rampage.
Juarez (for one of many) comes to mind as a distribution point.

Stoners would be pretty much oblivious to it until they ran out of smoke and then would make a mission for more smoke,
munchies,
or something sweet & cold to cure cotton mouth.

No disrespect,.......but all you have to do is open the mini-blinds or bedsheets over the windows.
The real world isn't according to MSNBC or liberal nutme-speak .

No disrespect. I'm sober AND out of pot.

Now, if everyone, EVERYONE... was stoned to the bone, who would pay the cable bill for Comedy Central or Maury in the morning?

Just having fun!

What good has keeping it illegal done? Our jails are filled with non-violent offenders like pot crimes. It's stupid and archaic.

It's a nature provided weed; it helps many, many people medically; it could become a good source of income for farmers and localities; it is virtually side-effect free; I could go on for pages, but lets just stop the crazy criminalization.

Archeologists just found a 5000 year old stash in an Egyptian tomb. I think humans are going to use marijuana no matter what the idiots in charge at the moment say. Duh.

I have heard that medical Marijuana can be helpful for pain control. Since I've not tried it I can't really be a judge but when you think of all the drug dealers that would be put out of business it might be worth it. Maybe those across the border in Mexico would one less thing to smuggle over to the states.

Politicians will never legalize pot.

75% of the eligible voters could say yes to decriminalizing reefer and still they
(jughead politicians) would not do it because they would lose their seat, where ever and what ever it was.

Just selfish politics.
I wished they had balls this big when it came down to forcing Obama's health-care mandatory insurance on everyone. We'll kick all your bum butts out come next election. Just watch.

We get it.
