Yes, Tax it as well.

How many people die on US Highways who are under the influence of Marijuana?

How many people die on the same highways who are under the influence of alcohol?

Alcohol causes 100% more than deaths as a result of driving, where only one substance is used than marijuana.

i moved to mississippi from louisiana . my husband has cancer and the state of miss. does not reconize it as a medical form of medicine. we do not do drugs of any kind. only what the dr. prescibes. THC pills ( marijuana pills ) cost over $900.00 a month and marijuana is alot cheaper and does the same thing. if not leagalize it , at least pass a bill where the sick people can get it.

It inevitably will be legalized and taxed just like alcohol--it just may take longer in Mississippi to get there. Once state governments realize how much tax revenue they can collect (in a time when the states are broke and budget defcicits are at record highs), they'll jump on board the legalization train.

Is this based on what personal experience or what you've been told all your life?

but it also helps ease alot of discomforts in cancer patients. my hubby has male breast cancer ( which is rare) his mom died at age 37 from breast cancer. and also on oxygen 24 / 7. we moved here because he wanted to be around his family before he dies. and things are so different up here, than in louisiana ( by new orleans ). so different.

I support the legalization of marijuana mainly because their are more important crimes to be dealt with. So many people are locked away every year over the victimless crime of possessing pot that the prisons are filling up quick. LEGALIZE IT!! NOBODY SHOULD FACE PRISON TIME OVER SOMETHING AS HARMLESS AS THIS!! and, as far as the whole "gateway drug" thing goes, it's only a gateway when dealers cant make enough money off of selling pot that they turn to other drugs for a source of income, thus introducing pot smokers (mainly teenage pot smokers) to other things such as cocaine, etc.. So, legalization would end a lot of that. THINK ABOUT IT PEOPLE. Our state could grow and sell some of the best on the market, if only we would give it a shot

yea,you can stop at one joint. but when you drink most people dont stop at one or even two. they keep on drinking till they are drunk. i think the same laws that apply to beer should apply to pot. theres a right way and a wrong way.you get stupid with eather one well you deserve what you get

marijuana is not chemically addictive, merely psychological. and being that, if not marijuana, one can be addicted to caffeine. as far as being a hallucinnogenic, maybe if you inhaled too much and had an anxiety attack, or got a hold of some that was laced. i do not condone the use of marijuana from a religious perspective because you are defiling the temple. but you can also defile the temple eating too much. i do think it should be legalized as someone else pointed out. if you drink , you want to party, if you smoke, you want to sit around and relax.and the reason traffic fatalities are so low is because stoned drivers dont go over the speed limit because they have the wits about them to not want to be pulled over lol.

I do not smoke marijuana nor do I drink. However, I see no reason to not legalize marijuana. It is a plant put here on earth for us to use.
I think the reason it has not been legalized is because there is more money to be made via fines and legal fees, than what would be made via legal sales.

I do not drink or do drugs but I would legalize the alcohol here because of taxes, people are getting it anyway but it's not their county getting the taxes.

I would legalize marijuana for tax purpose as well as people then know what they are smoking.

Many years ago, Couple days before my brothers 18th birthday he smoked a joint, He had no clue it was laced with pcp, First time I ever seen my pawpaw cry when the doctors came out of icu & said they weren't sure if he was going to make it, Family flew in, He did make it but it changed him in lil ways. We met one boy who did it & he'll be a vegetable the rest of his life. People are putting crazy stuff in it now days.
They are getting it anyway but it's not always safe.

Come on people, use the brain God gave you! This has been a subject matter going on for years now, whether or not to legalize marijuana. The truth is of course some people want it legalized so they can smoke it and be high without worrying about breaking the law.
Would you really like to go to Wal-Mart and stand next to the "truly legal" high person? Don't you think that would be fun?
Would you really like to be on the road with some "truly legal" high driver behind the wheel of the vehicle and have them sharing the same road with you?
Don't you think that your insurance rates are high enough now?
Think of the kids that would have to sit around inhaling more of this crap because their parents now can smoke all they want and not have to try and hide it anymore.
The people that smoke this stuff are not the "tax base" of the places where you live, more than likely they are the bunch your "tax base" is going to support because they are too high to get a regular job.
Medically speaking I think that it's bad the alternative costs so much but there has to be another way, until then I have little problem with "controlled" medical use, but still reservations about it.

Point blank the American people have stepped aside on so many issues, gave up and said go ahead we're tired of hearing it. It's almost politically incorrect to be AGAINST something now days when at the heart of the matter it is the right thing to do.

Stop giving in and saying I apologize for my beliefs people! As far as religion is concerned, even the Bible speaks of things that were put here on the earth but we are not suppose to eat them. Just because the plant is here does not make it something the creator would condone the way it was used. Humans are here but the sex industry uses the bodies of a lot of people don't they? Are you now going to say well "it's here" so we can use it anyway we see fit?

Before America totally falls stop giving into those things we know are wrong.

We're on the road with alcoholics & drug users already.
I agree I don't want it around children though.

It doesn't really help, it only relieves the pressure of glaucoma temporarily. There are other more effective treatments and medications for that.

Got that right! Remember, thorns occurred only after sin entered in the garden along with other harmful plants that are of the Devil.

I agree Tam. We are on the road with them now, my concern is that if it is legal we will have EVEN MORE of them to contend with on road. Oh joy!
I guess my point was more of them saying "hey it's legal now and there is nothing you can do about it". Sorry for your family having to go through all that, I wish others could see what it did and learn from it too.

I'd much rather deal with a pot head then a drunk! I've never heard of someone wanting to get stoned and beat the crap out of anyone or drive a hundred miles an hour. What are they going to do? Get stoned, get the munchies, laugh their butt off and go to sleep. Yes, I'd much rather deal with a stoner!!
