Pot is certainly less dangerous than alcohol. Why should we classify pot as the same kind of crime as hard drugs?

Chronic pain sufferers, like me, who are on HIGH doses of extremely dangerous narcotics like roxicodone would benefit greatly from a painkiller whose side effects at worst are the munchies and short-term memory loss as opposed to the horrors that come with opiate addiction.

sell it and put a high tax on it, maybe we get out of debt.
it's better for the state to have the monies than the drug dealers.

Yes...I agree government narcotics like morphine patches, prococets, San, valume, muscle relaxer are killing individual everyday...a natural herb is better than a man made drug

Maijuana is no more dangerous than alcohol...the ban on marijuana is the 21st Century's version of the ban of alcohol during Prohibition. When Prohibition was over...what happened to all the 'gangs"??...gone...crime dropped, the Government taxed the crap out of alcohol and made $$. Take a page out of the 1920's, legalize marijuana, crime will stop...or be lowered...tax the crap out of it and make $$...control the access to it ...put an age limit (21 years old and older)....
How many times have you been to a party or been in a bar and some a-hole (instant a-hole...just add alcohol) started trouble in his drunken state of mine..??? but how many parties have you been at when someone smoking marijuana started problems??? probably never....they are just mellowed out...

Legalizing MJ for prescribed medical use only won't make it legal to smoke anytime /anywhere. Companies that have a drug policy and do random testing will still be able to fire you if you have it in your systen,on their time, and on their premises. If you are being treated for radiation or chemo pain with MJ, you wouldn't be at work anyway and the doctor would have to give you a release to come back to work and then you would have to be tested clean. Then the government would have to step in and regulate the THC content so all doctors would be prescribing the same grade. Growers would be regulated and required to document every ounce grown and sold. After all that takes place ,home growers would be treated like moonshiners and narcodic smugglers and do automatic federal time,not just a slap on the wrist. Is legalization the answer?

Prescribed medical use only. Existing recreational use laws will remain.
