Marijuana is less damaging than liquor, I know!!! Make it legal, tax it and pay off the national debt!

Alcohol does more damage to the body than pot. Trust me, I lived that life for 25 years. Why not legalize it, tax it and pay off the NATIONAL DEBT!!!

I believe that marijuana should be legalized. It's an herb, not a drug. Also if itwere to be legalized many jobs could be created.

Absolutely legalize it! It sickens me in this free country that we have 25% of the worlds prison population! Victimless crimes aren't victimless. Thosed prosecuted and imprisoned and their families are the victims! The taxpayers are victims because they pay for these incredibly expensive legal franchises that are created in the form of arrest, prosecution and imprisonment! The reason for this is the sick "Prison Industrial Complex"!

If you controled by state regulation you could tax the sale and the revenue made by the sale of this would put our state in the green and with climate we have make a excellent growning condition.

I am from Jamaica, where we have the Ganja farms. This is a Herb, that is used medically, but its being mis-used. It is used as Tea, it can be pounded in a liquid form and dropped in the eyes for treatment of Glaucoma, and also used to Treat some Cancers. Because of its misuse, it has become illegal.

Just like anything it can become lethal if overused.Why is it illegal.......its legal to drink alcohol isn't it??

There are just too many benefits.

I recently watched the documentary/movie "Freakonomics" and one point really caught my attention... Why did the crime drop drastically country wide in the 90's? Better policing, gun control, and surging economy? No... It was the change in the law that prohibited abortions (1970s). Roe vs. Wade.

It makes sense... when we were given the ability to choose for ourselves, in essence (and regardless of the "morality"), this country gets a little better. Basically, mothers who were not ready to have babies were being told they could not abort, therefore, proper/good child rearing was not their "priority"... creating tomorrow's criminals.

Let's apply that to the marijuana case. Simply b/c it is illegal creates "criminals". It seems that it's primarily illegal b/c of it's morality. Already science has debunked the myths that marijuana causes lung cancer, kills brain cells, makes you stupid (look at great minds like Carl Segan and Steve Jobs), and it's clean (dirt, sun and water).

On 12/5/1484, the pope declared smoking marijuana is sacrilege.

Anslinger (1937) declare it illegal to incarcerate Latinos and blacks (in accordance to his morality).

What else?

Ok, teens use it and they will use it more if legalized. They will use it regardless, however, it would be a little more difficult b/c they would have to use the same mechanisms to obtain alcohol. Educating them the same way we do with alcohol and tobacco is the only way to do so reduce the usage among our young ones. Keeping it illegal will only add excitement.

This war on drugs is costing our country billions of wasted dollars and ending the lives of those who get convicted (as well as creating a ripple effect to their families... possibly generating more "criminals").

Imagine 10 years in the future if marijuana were legal today... would we have a better country?

We need to stand up for our freedom for we are "endowed by [our] Creator with unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness".

I don't think it's any worse then alcohol smells like shit when walking by people smoking it.
And I did see on youtube that from growing it you can make an oil that cures everything from cancer to arthritis to most anything. Look it up Ill bet its a story you won't be aloud to report on.

Correction:
Anslinger (1937) declare marijuana illegal in order to incarcerate Latinos and blacks...

He very much didn't have an issue sending them to jail.

Then support freedom. My wife nor I use it either but prohibition is costing this country billions of wasted dollars as well as costing the lives of innocent people. Example, look at the case of Rachel Hoffman ( http://www2.tbo.com/content/2008/may/11/11185... ).

The premise of using taxation to force leagalization of mj has been used since my time, and I'll bet I go back further than anyone on this post/board the pol's are stupid the national debt could be wiped out in one year of taxation of mj and it's legalization. Believe me there are are far more damaging legal drugs out there. It's juts the POL's would lose creditability to have the cahonas to support something that radical. The revolution in this country is coming. Not I'm my life cause I'm too old but it will come the children who are paying for our bad decisions in gov will I pray bring this country back to it's previous glory.
