If legalized, it should be taxed like liquor, beer and cigarettes! States stand to make a shitload of money in taxes!
People who sell illegal drugs should be jailed in the same cell with a sex offender.

Many more problems are created by criminalizing the drug Han it solves. Regulate it, tax it and all the law enforcement work,surrounding will go away. Empty out the jails and costs will go down. It's stupid to criminalize it.

Marijuana is not technically a drug. It is a natural plant that is grown in the ground. The economy as of today is in an unacceptable downward spiral and legalization is our only hope. The legalization and taxation of marijuana would help the economy tremendously.

Prohibition fails every time. Users will use legal or not. Stop making the rest of society suffer for it.

If you smoke the big "M" you may be gay. Most of my friends that are gay smoke the weed. Could it be that smoking the weed turns you gay?

Don't live in contradiction, cannabis is just a plant with a psycho-active property when combusted. It's harmless if you use a vaporizer, or if eaten. Funny thing is one of the first laws in Virginia was to grow cannabis. George Washington and plenty other presidents smoke cannabis. Abraham Lincoln admitted in a letter written during his presidency that one of his "favorite things" was "sitting on [his] front porch smoking a pipe of sweet hemp." The only damn reason that it became illegal was in 1937, when the timber company got scare of the hemp business. The timber company didn't make any profit with the hemp business in town. You can use hemp for many of things including wood. So the timber company and it's politicians scared people with the ever so irrational "reefer madness" saying it was bad in every way. Anyway, all I am saying is give the people what they want, freedom of choice to use. Legalize, regulate it, tax it, and age restrict it. So the black market can die off. In addition, some the revenue annually from it's legalization could be put into educational funds for our kids. With the money it could bring back. The American Dollar would actually be worth a dollar again. So there is pros and cons for this. But look a the obvious. Don't let the lies get to you. For the record, I don't smoke cannabis. But I think it's awful how the government is putting tax paying hard working citizens in jail for a possession of cannabis. Seriously, people need to start standing up. This is a war on ourselves if you think about it. It's time for the government to see to end this "war on marijuana" and start catching real criminals. Do you people agree? or do you still un-heartly believe the government's hypocritical lies? Just saying.

It's time to end the "war on drugs". Prohibition doesn't work. Any American that went to elementary school can tell you that. Legalize, tax, and regulate. It's just that simple, any lawmaker that tells you different is a lair

I also believe marijuana is a harmless drug. Think bout it...youve never heard of a pot head robbing someone to get money for their stuff! Pot heads just wanna chill & relax! If everybody smoked then maybe the world would be a lot more peaceful!

Alcohol and cigarettes are much more dangerous. What is freedom without choices?

[QUOTE who="N.A.H.A.F"]MARI JUANA IS A NATURAK HERB. ITS NEAR TO HUMANLY IMPOSSIBLE DO O.D. ON. IT HAS COUNTLESS MEDICAL APPLICATIONS. IT EXPANDS CONSCIOUSNESS.(THE MAIN REASON IT IS ILLEGAL N MOST AMERICANS GET STUCK WITH SHITY SWAG). IT COULD BE TAXED EFFECTIVELY. IT WOULD PROMOTE JOBS N REVENUE FOR OUR OBSCURE ECONOMY THAT IS SPIRALING DOWN THE CAN. SOMETHING LIKE 60% OF THE PERSONS IN THE AMERICAN PENAL SYSTEMS ARE NON-VILENT POT OFFENDERS.(THE MAJORITY OF WHICH ARE PRIVATISED.) AS lEARY SAID, ITS A WAR ON PERSONAL FREEDOM. THE BRAIN HAS CANABANOID RECEPTORS FOR A REASON! ETC... THE LIST GOES ON N ON. WHEN THERE IS A WAR THERE IS USUALLY EVENTUALLY A VICTOR. THERE WILL NEVER BE A VICTOR IN THE " WAR " ON DRUGS. THE GOVERNMENT MOVES MOST OF THE DRUGS IN ANYWAYS. THEN THEY SELL ROLLING PAPERS, BLUNT WRAPS, N PIPES AT ALMOST ANY GAS STATION. U CAN GO TO A HEAD SHOP N BUY ANYTHING U NEED TO CONSUME MARIJUANA ANY WAY U LIKE. YET ITS ILLEGAL. SOUNDS LIKE A SET UP TO ME. THEN THEY HAVE ALL THOSE NICE PRIVATISED PRISONS FOR U TO GO SIT IN WHEN THEY CATCH U PLAYING WITH THEIR TOYS. ITS QUITE SAD THAT MARIJUANA IS STILL ILLEGAL.[/QUOTE]Yes it is still illegal. If I catch you with it you will go to jail.

Your statement makes no sense? What is your point. Did you plan to tell us somenthing we didn't know or did you just have too much time on your hands?
