It's not a waste , If I come home from work and have had a bad day , instead of popping one of the many pills that my girl friends get from their Gynecologist ( and yes that is who writes all of the girls the scripts for drugs , and the script says you need to take them everyday even if your not having a bad day ) I just smoke weed, I smoke to chill after a bad day and I smoke when I want have fun , but I don't smoke every day . I spent less than $200 on pot last year. So that is less then they most of my friends spend on prescription feel good drugs .. Smoke it it if you got it !! Legalize it and I will plant it beside my Tomato's ..
I agree with you , I smoke too. You need to calm down and read ALL of the prior post's . Im for the legalization of marijuana

it causes more problems criminalized than if it were decriminalized , it would create new jobs and it would bring in around 1-5 billion a year in tax revenue(estimated figure) on top of it all it would free up overly crowded jails & prisons for crimes of possessing marijuana i mean wake up America are you this brain washed by all the propaganda you so called free America more like Nazi Germany were people are profiled for the way they look and what they drive <when will the cops actually serve and protect and do there jobs and to stop spending money on the war on drugs because while were worrying about drugs people are being killed or robbed because the cops are to busy worrying about drugs . we need to put are foot down and support pro legalization for the simple reason because its the right thing to do!!!! and i will not disclose my name for the simple fact that i dont want the atention from the cops ...its just like that.....

this is for public defender - it must mean that you want this country to fail. you said you are one of the ones that waste tax dollars by sitting on your computer bashing people that support something other than the raising of the deficit .you sir will be one of the ones that will be very unhappy when this town turns inside out on law enforcement from imploding in on its self from you wasting what is left of very unstable gov. , and for that i want to thank you for being one of the ones that contributes to the waste of the peoples money and i hope you get plenty of over time glade to see that cops can screw the system and bend the rules but no one else can, honestly your worst than the Nazi's all you need now is some dead Jews and a arm band. and for the record im not a racist or meant it in a negative way toward the Jewish faith its the point of the matter that law enforcement has been racist,bias,racially motivated,overly populated and has strayed off the path of protect and serve. i know first hand that you as cops do things professionally but you are dicks

Smoke it , grow it , share it !!! stop letting the drug lords grow weed with such high THC , home grown is a more peaceful Buzzz and no one gets high and beats his kids. The over processed weed is dangerous , get natural and grow good weed just like the tomato's your granny grows .

Ahhhh I love it when I have fans. You are correct about one thing, I am well paid. But, not by taxpayers. You really need to look into where law enforcement monies actually come from. Last I checked, the fund my check is written from has nothing to do with taxes. I honestly don't care if you smoke it, eat it, wear it, make jewelry out of it or turn it into fuel, until the law is removed you will be charged. As far as being racist, what if I am black? What If I am Hispanic, Hmong , Middle Eastern? What then? Nazi-ism? Really thats the best you can do? Come on I like real arguments, not rants!!!! As far as breaking laws to do my job, I have been at this for quite some time now and the way I see it...There are enough laws on the books that HELP me do my job and extremely few that prevent it....soooo...where do we go from here?

i have indulged in marijuana (in probably about every way you can ) over the past 18 years.The real reason they made it illegal in the first place is to keep the southern border from over flowing!!!! Yeah we see how well that is working (LOL)

You want the Marijuana growers to be out of work? You cruel Bastards! As we read this many a Mexican is humping a bale of weed across a border. Others are digging tunnels and working hard to bring both pot and terriorist's to our country and you want cause more unemployment by taking away their jobs. These workers need our support now...some have many children and wifes in both countries. The poor street level drug dealers need our support too. Its the holidays for Pete sake!

Good luck Public, good debate.
I support it being legalized. The FDA are the worlds largest drug dealers they take payoffs to pass drugs through without enough studies. Look at all the horrible side effects and even worse health problems people have yrs after taking drugs they've passed. Look at all the liver damage from pills. Meds to increase apetites in patients that don't have healthy appetites have other side effects. The indians smoked it first and they were very healthy happy people until we brought them alcohol. We have so many other things worse than herb

Should be legal as I believe it's a civil liberty. The government has no right to tell people what they put in their bodies as long as it hurts no one else.
