Marijuana in my opinion is safer to consume than alcohol. I believe that if legalized marijuana should have somewhat the same laws of use as alcohol. You obviously shouldn't be able to drive while under the influence, consume it before or during work, or give it to kids under 21. But it should be legal to use in your own home at your own discretion.

you never see anyone do any crazy shit while smoking dope. that sure cant be said for other drugs & alcohol. i totally support this. i'd still be smoking it today if i didn't have to take drug test @ my drs. i havent smoked in approx 20yrs. id love to take a few tokes than take antidepressants & zanax.

Different people have different reaction's to marijuana. If it was legalized im sure that it what take a bite out of crime and what not, but it's a very risky subject. It's like tanya's comment "I'd love to take a few tokes than take antidepressants and zanax" that could be a lethal combination, you just never know. One door leads to another.

I dont think that she is saying that she wants to take them together...she is saying that she would rather be able to take a couple tokes instead of having to take antidepressants and xanax...and smoking a joint after you take a pill, drink, or anything else isnt going to kill you, it doesnt "mix" w/ other things the way that pills and stuff do. Please do some research before you fall for the scare tactics. I know people who have smoked pot for decades and they never were led into other drugs. Pot being a "gateway" drug is a bunch of BS. Either you are someone who is willing to do hard drugs or your not. Pot is just the most easily accessed drug so they wind up doing it first...then as the find the harder stuff the do it, b/c they want to...not b/c pot made them. Smoking a joint isnt going to suddenly make you want to go hit a crack pipe.

"Scare tactics" who is scared of pot? I'm scared of the different effects it has on people, not that it's a suspected "gateway drug". I know it's not, and I've seen for myself the effects it can have on a person's mood. I personally wouldn't want somebody who has just got high running a crane or any type of machinery. Maybe you understand my point now, sorry i wasn't clear enough before. What will be next after pot is legalized? Drunk driving?

I disagree, pot is a gateway drug. One of my cousins started on pot and progressed to other things. He died, alone, swelled, skin busted and cracked. No kids, no job, no wife, no funeral. His mother did collect his creamated reamins, at least she cared even after 20 years of drug use. I hope God can show him a better way.
