In a 2010 report by the Common Sense for Drug Policy Organization, the American annual causes of death were classified under the following categories:

Tobacco Related 430,700
Alcohol Related 110,640
Prescription Drugs 32,000
Suicide 30,575
Homicide 18,272
Drug Induced Deaths 16,926
NSAIDís (such as Aspirin) 7,600
Marijuana 0 deaths

Before you start to wonder about the veracity of the figures above, you should be aware that no one has ever been officially declared dead from direct or indirect marijuana consumption.

I've always supported the use of weed.It don't make you do stupid stuff like the liquor,the pills,and the needles. In my opinion I think they need to crack down and worry more about the pill and needle use than worrying about someone smoking a joint and staying happy

I love it when all you narrow minded prohibitionist puppets freak out into panic mode like that on topix. After this little plant is legalized I'm gonna personally point my finger at every single one of you and laugh in your face.

Testing

It should be legalized but not until a test can be created to reasonably test accurate intoxication levels as say an alcohol DUI as well as what that said level should be. Pot can be overused and does slow the reflexes in these instances contrary to many peoples arguements and hesitation in reflexes can cause accidents. Not arguing it is better nor worse than say alcohol or pills, just saying it can have negative influences and consequences also.

Id like to see it legalized. i have cancer and its the only thing that helps me eat and not be in pain all of the time. there are a lot of people besides myself who could bennifit from the medicinal side of it. diabetics, people with back pain or nerve pain, people suffering from mental illness etc. There has never been an incident where pot has caused death. the only side effect is short term memory loss which is restored after your high is gone. its much healthier and safer than other drugs. besides, God made it for us to use!
Mostly in Favor

I am mostly in favor of making it legal but do believe they need to come up with a testing system like they do with alcohol and medications. If you smoke too much marijuana it does slow the reflexes and decision making which can impair driving and other activities. Maybe not to the degree of alcohol but it does happen. I currently do not partake but do suffer chronic pain and migraines and believe it can help many people. Just like with medications (pills,patches,etc) it's the ones who misuse that make it hard on the ones who truly need it.
