I believe in legalizing marijuana. People say it leads to harder drugs. That is not true. I know people who just smoke pot. Pot is no harder than alcohol. Alcohol kills more people than pot. The federal government should regulate it. They can get taxes on it. If you legalize it it will alleviate overcrowding in prisons. We could help the budget if we had taxes on it.

Marijuana should be used like alcohol. I agree that there should be consequences if used before work or schooling but it should be able to be used as a free-time feel-good activity.

Marijuana is far less dangerous than alcohol. And in reality, the ONLY way they can really control it is to legalize it.

Turn all the money we spend on the War on Drugs on to the hard drugs and get a lot of the "underground / illegal economy" money back into legitimate uses.

Not just "marijuana" which is just a slang for cannabis, but also hemp which is an industrial product that this Country could benefit from. We outsource a billion dollar crop from Canada and we wonder why we borrow $40,000 dollars a second. Cannabis and Hemp should be legalized because it being illegal is morally wrong.

seriosly an addiction to marijuana is not as bad asn addiction to pain medications. I dealt with chronic back pain for many years now marijuana helps me relax all over, medications just relax my brain and my body still is unable to relax unless i smoke!i can say from personal exspeience it helps me considerably.
