I am disables and I smoke marijuana. It helps a lot with my pain and also gives me an appetite. I am all for the legalization of marijuana. It is not as dangerous as alcohol.

I think it should be legal and taxable. It is already every where. Instead of filling our jails with pot heads, we should be able to make money off of it.

Has any one looked at the topics map? Nationwide the responders to the Marijuana question is that it sould be leagalized. We had a saying when I was a kid growing up in the south where there are still dry counties,"The only people who want to see a dry county are preachers and bootleggers" the same applies to Marijuana. rhere are those who seek political power in their comunities and the expediant is to take the moral highground on an issue and ignor the facts. the leagalization of Marijuana in california was opposed not by law enforcement but by growers and dealers because the growers did not want to pay taxes or have govt regulations concerning the use of the plant.

Simply as a father, given a choice of my son having a marijuana problem or a gambling problem, I choose marijuana. Anti-pot is more a societal condemnation than problems caused by the drug itself. There is too much money at stake for the anti-pot coalition for the laws to change. Incidentally, I have never smoke pot.

You are so right, I don't smoke either. But the hipocracy of those who would put a casino in our back yard hoping to net costomers from the APG BRAC is astounding!!!

Really? Did you know that marijuana is typically laced with another chemical? I would consider you clueless as to what is best for your son. Today you support marijuana but tomorrow you will be standing at the Sheriff's office crying that your son stole all of your valuables and hocked them at the pawn shop across town...to support his drug habit! Pull your head out of your hooohhhaaa! The thrill of sneaking marijuana will be replaced by the thrill of sticking a needle in your sons arm. Leave well enough alone and try teaching your son that Drugs and gambling will get him NOWHERE!

"I would rather my son be a doper than a gambler"? Geee...how about "I would rather my son be in the county jail instead of the state prison system"? Or better yet...I would rather see my son dead than strung out on heroin and living on the street"! How far are you willing to go there "concerned father"?

Sorry for the rant but some parents have lost touch with their responsibility!

Just an FYI....not many pot heads are thefts and stealing to support their pot habit. It is the ones with the needles. Pot is not neary as expense as the rest. When you stop smoking, you don't go thru a harsh withdrawl. As soon as your high goes away with hard drugs, you have a horribe withdrawl. So those people on drugs other than pot, have to steal because it is more expensive to stay high all the time. Don't point fingers until you know all your facts about all the drugs. I don't mean textbook facts either, I mean real life facts and experiences.

Look at how the pro smokers spell!They drive high and tend to drink a .40oz to help get "nice".Drugs ruined my life and pot was no exception.Through the Grace of God I'm clean today,for many years.You cannot gauge legalizing pot by a bunch of stoners sitting in front of a screen,while somebody else is supporting them.
Pot over alcohol is just plain stupid.As a parent you don't have to tolerate any of it and i doubt the law is going to change any time soon.So maybe he'll get busted with it driving your car or in your house,sort of a two for one shot.
Good luck with that one,idiot.

Pot is just as bad as any other drug and impairs your judgment over and extended period of time.It also takes away your willpower,makes you lazy,warps your perception of reality.I could go on,but will let one of these doped up idiots have the floor."oh wow man"

If it was leagal it would be reulated and the people who consume it would be protected by the law.
