Yes. Think of the revenue generated by the sale of marijuana like cigarettes and alcohol and it would leave the police force to pursue more serious crimes.

Ok how much do you pay for a lid now?

Add about 300% to that price for taxes (about equal to cigarettes).

Then add the increased processing costs for regulation of THC content, Packaging, Shipment, Warning labels, etc...

How much will that same lid cost you?

If Dope becomes legal law enforcement could spend time on more serious crimes, like Dope induced DUIs, Higher theft rates due people not being able to afford Dope, Assult cases over spending money on dope or bills, Mandatory testing Dope influence with all traffic stops, etc...

How much of the taxes would it take to implement Dope regulation and pay government dope inspectors.

The people I have known went nowhere fast smoking pot. It consumed their lives and they could care less about their quality of life and moving forward into career jobs. their usual thoughts were about smoking pot or how to get their next bag of it.
As americans we are fat and lazy enough without this drug. hemp should be legal because of its amazing industrial uses. I feel we should regulate boarders up and block off the open areas on our boarder lines. drug crimes should be extensive to slow our increasing gangs in our cities. The police are doing a fine job. However I feel they should be spending more time on actual crimes instead of raising money for the city by sitting on the side of the roads waiting for speeders.

Hello first of ill state that I am a daily marijuana smoker and in terms of pursuing my professional career I have had my job and held my job for the last 4 years. Sure. You do become a tad lazy when your baked but I find it easier to concentrate, through my academic career in high school I lacked attention when I was stoned during class I payed more attention and actually did better on tests, now I don't have any written data. Anyone that opposes the legalization of marijuana in a regulated not necessarily taxed way I strongly suggest you take some time out of your day and watch the movie super high me. Its the story of a man who smokes daily, he takes 30 days of not smoking marijuana and takes a few tests, then he smokes for 30 days and repeats the tests I think all you skeptics will be quite surprised by the results. On another note take the time to think about how many people are in jail for marijuana related cases and think about how much it costs each day to keep them in there that's your tax dollars hard at work right there. Give me proof of why its so bad and ill almost garuntee I can counter your argument I know garuntee is most likely spelled wrong but you know what the word is haha

Marijuana poses very little risk, no one goes on a wife beating rampage when they are high, they get the munchies and fall asleep in the chair. I feel alcohol poses a higher risk.

It is a natural plant that puts out less of the harmful chemicals than the cigarettes that a lot of us smoke do. Unlike achohol it does NOT cause hostility in it's users, in fact it may CALM some people right out of their temper. Under a similar set of rules as what we use for those two LEGAL drugs(age, driving, work) there could be MANY benefits to making it legal. When you add in the medical uses such as pain, seizures, nausea, and many others, it seems redundantly ridiculous that we HAVEN'T made it legal YET. So much time and money is spent finding, prosecuting, and punishing growers and users that should be better used on doing the same to violent offenders. This is a dangerous waste of what we don't really have...the MONEY.

So now you want both together? So now the high/drunk can go on the rampage and beat his wife and then not remember it.

Yes it is a natural plant so is Poison Ivy, go smoke that its not illegal. Yes dope gives a euphoric feeling and in long terms it affect the ability to comprehend complex instruction, reduces tettesterone levels, causes irregular minstrel cycles, cotton mouth, munchies, and lasps of memory.

Just because it maybe a lesser of 2 bads, does not mean it should be legal.

Tax it for the money, yeah right how much would spent on regulating its content, drug testing at traffic stops, packaging warning labels, etc...

We don't spell as bad as you when we DO smoke !!!!!!!!!Follow slowly..testosterone..menstrua l cycles..lapses of memory...The government has been growing weed for over 30 years for medicinal and research purposes..Do some homework...The drug testing at traffic stops is a simple cheek swab and dip the swab into a small vial to see if the swab changes color(residue from weed)Same as checking other drugs..

Ibonics works! you knew what I was talking about, LOL.

Yes the government has been testing/researching dope for 30 years and still has not came out and said it was safe for daily recreational use. This should tell you something, LOL.

First I heard of swab tests, never had to worry about drug tests. I read about them and found many ways to get inconclusive results when swab tested, LOL.

So how much do you think a pack joints or lid would sell for? Which THC level product would you buy?

A giant waste of our resources to attempt to restrict the public from having something that with enough determination they will get anyways.
I believe that marijuana should be legal -- it's something that I feel strongly about.
