I don't use drugs at all. I don't care if it is legal, it alternates the mind and changes the personality, I know a guy in 40's that died taking zanax and legal drugs he felt like super man, until no warning they took him out heart attack. mind alternating drugs so know knock your self out. NOT ME!
That would make me think he didn't take them as prescribed which would negate whether they were legal or not.
I've no choice other than taking strong legal medications. I'd love to fell like superman but since I'm not out to kill myself I've taken them as prescribed for two years the superman thing doesn't happen. I'm all for making it legal especially if it allowed me to cut back on the legal pain medication.

ā€ˇ100's of thousands of humans are killed every year due to alcohol. You know how much cannabis it takes to kill a lab rat? 20lbs dropped on it from 25ft. Be wise and legalize.

I say let everyone put whatever they want into their bodies. Not only that but make ALL illicit substances free of charge to the users with extreme penalties for crimes associated with these substances. BUT, no rehab and all consequences will be the responsibility of the user. Let Darwinism sort it out.

Personally, in the mid eighties we had a crew of 84 people who for the most part smoked pot like it was cigarettes. I would MUCH rather find myself on a highway full of potheads than on a highway with just one drunk. Pot just makes me thirsty and paranoid- but to each his/her own.:0

you legalized alchol several years ago saying it would be good for the economy, bring in revenue. LOOK AT THE PROBLEMS we have now. Legalizing marijuana will add to the problems. Don't kid yourself by saying it won't.

To begin with, you need to study the alcohol prohibition years if you want to see problems. Don't get me wrong, alcohol has the potential to destroy lives and cause deaths but that's unrelated to whether it's legal or not.

The majority of problems related to marijuana are mostly caused by the illegality of it!

7 years ago, I finally quit drinking after 35+ years. During those years, I've seen and/or been involved with all the down sides. With the exception of being arrested, for "illegal substance" abuse, none of those down-side problems would have occurred if I had only smoked marijuana and left off the alcohol.

Sacramento -- Citing the need to reduce spending on prosecution and courts, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a measure that makes marijuana possession an infraction, on par with traffic and littering tickets.
==========
Source: Christian Science Monitor

Will marijuana initiatives on the ballot in four states help get young voters to the polls on Nov. 2, and once they’re in the voting booth, will they also vote for Democrats?

The Just Say Now campaign to legalize marijuana launched an online phone bank Friday to target young voters not otherwise likely to vote in 2010 midterm elections – including so-called surge voters, who backed the Obama presidential campaign in 2008. The aim is to identify supporters of ballot initiatives to ease restrictions on marijuana in California, Arizona, South Dakota, and Oregon, and then get them to the polls.
==========

Well folks there's the answer in a nutshell!
Forget about right or wrong...duh
Forget about the pros and cons...duh
And most of all, forget about all the years NORML and many others have been fighting to legalize it.

It all simply comes down to Obama-nomics and the struggling democrats doing anything possible to get a niche of people voting solely for this reason alone as they can. As in people who may not normally vote.

So getting one right thing done requires electing the wrong people on the major issues we face.

Thank you,"bobt1956" for pointing out how it was the Democrats who ruined all of the wonderful things left over from the Bush years. Without question, Bush was the most intelligent president we've ever had, and was surrounded by the finest advisers the world has ever known.

It's just a darn shame that during Bush's first year in office, that pesky Saddam Hussein hijacked and then flew some hijacked airliners into some buildings, and then flew back to Iraq to hide all of his weapons of mass destruction. I've heard that George secretly has traveled to Iraq, and is personally spearheading the ongoing search for them.

Your welcome.

Guess now you'll be a good democratic example. Legalizing pot gives you a reason to register and vote. Unless by chance you registered and voted for Obama because you actually believed all those promises he made. However, he did keep one promise. No telling where that dog he promised to get would be today if he had ignored that one (maybe in a pound somewhere still hoping to share the wealth).

Bob, I'm afraid that I'm going to have to burst your bubble. I am not a Democrat, and I did not vote for Obama. I am a Libertarian, and have consistently voted as such for many years.

None of that, however, can alter the fact that the Bush years are what have brought us to where we are now, financially speaking. Blaming Obama for our current situation is simply not accurate.

It's looking like "comment wise" it's maybe 100 percent for legalizing marijuana here.

Not stray of subject to much, can I suggest you move to the following ongoing thread:

i realize there are many people who are against the legalization of marijuana because they believe it to be evil,believe that only "losers" smoke it,and that it is a gateway drug.just not so my friends.now when i was in high school we did smoke and smoke and smoke until everyone was passed out in his or her own family sized bag of chips--not exactly attractive--just like people who drink their lives away-you cant quite respect anyone who abuses a drug or alcohol to that point.however,as an adult i use it responsibly (so does my family doctor by the way for those of you who think that pot is for the uneducated)and it is a blessing-i recommend everyone try it before you knock it.marijuana is so mild,i just think its downright silly that so many uptight people make such a fuss over it.the benefits far outweigh any disadvantages legalizing it would bring.just ask the thousands of farmers going broke who are chomping at the bits for this to happen.just let it happen people-us supporters are the majority!!!

All people have to do is learn about the facts. Pot has finally been studied and the results may fool you. There are some great new documentaries you need to check out. Marijuana is an herb we should learn more about. Alchohol is the drug we should be afraid of. No one has ever died from ingesting too much pot.

I smoked it with my dying motherinlaw a month before she passed. she went in and ate two egg sandwiches with bacon and tomatoes, frenchfries(large) and drank a large glass of milk. The 1st meak she had in I cannot remember.
Her youngest daughter found out and basically blessed her out and she would never no matter how much I tried, did it again. People need to know the healing and the abuse of this medicine just like any other drug. They would find out how benefitual it can be for people who suffer needlessly! The only thing left I have to say is Fire it up Mamaw!Luv~ your Family
