As far as I am concerned, it is not any different than alcohol. And, I don't even smoke it.

If alcohol is legal, why wouldn't marijuana be??? It has much less effect on a person that say alcohol does to a drunk person. And it would help the economy. Tax the hell out of it.

I agree 100% on legalizing marijuana. Much less effect than alcohol. And weed heads aren't out cruising for trouble, they are home smoking and relaxing. People who drink are out at bars driving around, endangering others lives. Alcohol is far worse, I have never understood what is so bad with marijuana???? Legalize it, Tax it, and the people will pay!!!!

I would rather see someone smoke weed rather then be out on the streets looking for drugs that then lead into crimanal act.And aslo weed is a good pain controller.

Tax the crop to pay for health care, and reduce court dockets full of weed only busts, less violence due to decriminalization, and IT GROWS NATURALLY anyway.

I agree with all the responses. There are too many selling and it has been that way for years. Prohibition caused a lot of deaths and crime. Once it was legalized it all stopped. There has been a lot of deaths already that has to do with drugs. It is a big business. That is what happened to the young man on Porter-Lynch road and now the ones that did the crime are in jail for murderering him. I believe that they will never be able to stop the use of marajuana. They need to legalize it so they can get more control on it. It would save the law enforcement a lot of money and there would be a lot less undue deaths. There are a lot of health benefits also. Alcohol was legalized and the crime sprees stopped. That is what history is about. You learn from past mistakes. We are just in another era. Our state is usually behind the times.

I smoke, It isnt that bad! You can control yourself better on weed then alcohol. Smoke is safer then cigarette smoke. It calms you down. But the munchies suck lol

So you only plan on legalizing it for people who don't smoke pot or something? Or we not allowing scumbags who cant spell, put together complete sentences, or look like a semi intelligent human being.

I think Gossipgirl smoked herself retarded, hence the retardation on her post. ITS NOT LEGAL YET! STOP SMOKING!

If breaking the law repeatedly makes people scumbags,(IE not paying child support, doing drugs, stealing) do I really need to finish the point im going at here? Haven't seen to many here not being scumbags in the eyes of Massena Topix posters.

i know who that is and yes they are scum.As far as support and criminal activity,how can someone comment on the problems in massena when (1) they r the problem and (2) they arent even from massena or this country.I dont smoke but really dont think it is the worse of the evils.Thats kinda my point he should take ur advice and return all the shit he stole from his x and should do his legal rx and stop smokin crack and pot,also maybe pay his support for the first time ever.People like him wont make it legal anytime soon.

Marijuana really isnt bad at all. The worst part about it is how the Government is neglecting the fact that they have a huge cash crop right under their noses, If the government regulates marijuana and the manufacture of hemp they could sucessfully suck the money out of all the stoners wallets and make the USA a better place. There would be less money from fines, but taxing it would make up for that and then some. If you think about it, Sugar and fat are probably more severe to your health then smoking grass. So people who hate it really have nothing to hate it about, except the violence that comes with it which would stop if the government would regulate it
