Marijuana is safe non addictive way for people to enjoy themselves and relax. Stop allowing fear to overcome reason and do some research

there's no reason it should be illegal. sure people overuse it but people overuse alcohol too but the difference is that alcohol actually kills people everyday? how many deaths have there been from marijuana? try none. tax it or something just legalize it. people do it all the time anyway

Pot is addictive subconsciously, Studies have shown it is a gateway drug for other more serious drugs. My personal opinion I feel it should be legal, like you guys have said no one dies from weed. It just kills the smokers brain cells, at an alarming rate, but nothing anymore seems to be good for you. It's all about taxes. If you really wanted to get it legal then stand up for it, not just write about it in topixs. Look at Cali, they have a whole city that is centered around Marijuana. Good day

The gateway theory has been debunked by so many peer reviewed studies that it's almost laughable that anyone mentions it anymore. I can understand why people believe it. It's because prohibitionists have been pushing this unfounded propaganda for decades now.

It is also a myth that marijuana kills brain cells. The study that came up with that finding forced monkeys to smoke 60 Colombian strength cigarettes a day for 30 days. They fitted the monkeys with a mask, that forced them to smoke the 60 joints in a 5 minute period. This of coarse suffocated the monkeys, which kills brain cells.

More modern, and reliable studies have shown that marijuana in fact does not kill brain cells at all. Alcohol on the other hand is a toxin, and clearly kills brain cells.

Yes I support it. It's used for medicine how bad could it be, yeah pills are used to but if you abuse them theres a difference. Marijuana is a mellow buzz, no fighting no killing or oding

You would be surprised who actually is a pot dealer In Rainelle. They smoke it & sale it DAILY to support their own habit AND A lot Of YOU on this FORUM ARE REALTED to themand do not even know they are pot heads let alone dealers... so the question is-- if its so bad... how they been doing it for years and their own family don't know... and before you say it- they aint small time either. They are also a 'noticeable' person in the area and not young.......... hmmmmmmmm
THEY both work daily jobs, same jobs for years, at least same field... theyre med- med high income range...own nice home,, couple vehicles, very well liked pillar of the community types...
Again, if Pot so Bad then Rainelle needs to give up and go off the MAp.

I SAY LEGALIZE IT, rather see it then a drunk or pill head ANYDAY ANYTIME.

Marijuana produced today is up to 70 xs more potent as that produced in the 70s. It has more than 400 different chemicals in the dried form. PCP, THC and many cancer causing agents to name a few. The smoke is held in the lungs much longer than cigarette smoke which increases the amount of exposure to these chemicals by the body. Marijuana causes an increased heart rate, and some people experience "panic attacks" or anxiety when smoking it. It also causes what is commonly known as "burnout" in the chronic user. Marijuana causes short term memory problems as well as learning disabilities related to this memory issue. People smoking marijuana have a reduced reaction time, which can cause problems when driving or operating machinery.People who smoke marijuana at an early age dont do well in school, or with learning later in life, this limits their lifetime productivity. Which decreases their lifetime earning capacity. This places them in or at the poverty level and reduces their children to poverty as well. Do you want this for your children? Or do you want to live on minimum wage the rest of your life because you have "burnt out our brain" with chronic marijuana use? If you really beleive that marijuana should be legal, at least get the facts before you write comments on public forums.

biggirl, you need to do some more studying before you try to come off as knowledgeable about marijuana. Those 'scare tactics' didn't work very well 70 years ago and they are no closer to the truth now than they were then.
Even though I no longer partake, 40 plus years of smoking on a daily basis gives me just a touch more insight into the short and long term effects and, I can assure you, my earning capacity is quite well, thank you! My memory is something I've received many compliments for and I am in excellent health for a man of my age.
