The laws cause more harm than consumption of the plant ever could.

Prohibition is counterproductive to the "stated goals" of its perpetrators. Additionally, it completely neglects responsible individual autonomy and the right to consume what one desires.

How does it make sense to have health police putting people in jail for being physically or mentally ill. Cops are barely educated, and I have not met a cop who was better informed and more intelligent the me. I resent being controlled by people who are dumber and less informed then me.

If you think that drugs cause "crime" (like smoking pot or shooting heroine causes one to steal or fight) and not drug laws, I recommend you actually wait until a real crime is committed.

The state of drug laws exists in its current configuration not for public safety and justice but for maintaining various oppressive economic and social cultures. The main effect of these sturcures are to increase the level of dishonesty between people which results in corruption and injustice. Prohibition disrupts peace and prosperity by giving actual the beasts of humanity access to resources. Gang violence around the world is not due to drug use per se, but rather by who is in control of the resource.

Marijauna does LESS damage to your body over time than smoking ciggerettes, drinking alcohal and other drugs. I say legalize it.

I have yet to see anyone that is smoking pot do anything that deserves the title, "Illegal Substance". There seems to be an undeserved stigma to the use of marijuana in a mind altering fashion. There is also a great overlook as to the uses it has as a product in its many forms for benefit of all.
If pot is illegal then by the severity of crimes committed by Alcohol influenced people, then so too should be Alcohol.
IMHO.

take the profits from the cartels and dead beats and tax it like alcohol, cigs, gas, etc... I truly hate the idea of taxing pot but either way its going to be a part of society and that way the government can justify it to the bible thumpers.

It is about time to legalize it. Alcohol is 10 times more damaging and makes you violent. I've lost many family members due to alcoholism. If MJ was available, they would still be alive.

We should be judged on our acts. You can be guilty for beer or a doctor's prescription. The same should apply to marijuana. HOW you became intoxicated does not matter.What you did is the issue

After all the injury and death caused by tobacco and alcohol,,, you want to legalize another detriment into our community...

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.

Marijuana causes a chemical imbalance in the brain and causes motor skills to be impaired...

Eating,,, texting,,, fixing your hair while driving is just stupid...
