There are a great many uses for marijuana aside from the obvious recreational and medicinal. I like the idea of recreational simply because it is NOT worse than alcohol. In fact, alcohol is far worse. Marijuana is not physically addictive; alcohol is. And how many people do you know that go to bars to smoke themselves out then drive home at ridiculous speeds and with little attention, killing other people in the process??? Violent crimes do not stem (sorry for the pun) from marijuana use, only its illicit sale. Make it legal, no more violent crimes tied to marijuana...Plus tax revenue to boot!

Criminal not to legalize it. The POTWAR is a losing enterprise and the poeple overwhelmingly choose otherwise so lawmakers have no choice. it must be done soon.

Marijuana is still a drug that leads to addiction. Once someone is addicted to something they will do whatever it takes to get the addiction filled which can also involves crime. People will argue that it is ok and to just tax it, however the extra tax funds that are generated will be spent on medical expenses for the longterm effects that we no research on.

If the government legalizes marijuania, then the taxes could help with the deficit. The the drug wars would end as well. Instead of smugglers being arrested IF caught, charge a fee for being it into the US. It's a money maker and the government doesn't want to except it.

i support legalization of marijuana, because it will help cancer patients. there would be more room in jails and prisons for murders and rapest that have more serious crimes than just smoking or selling marijuana.

I'd rather see them legalize and tax it as an economic resource rather than open more casinos!

if you look at this chart, you can see the dependence, tolerance, and withdrawal of marijuana are all lower then caffeine.

I think we should make food illegal like Mary Jo and get some of these fat asses off the couch. Exercise is the gateway drug to fitness

Do we honestly believe that MOST people would use Marijuana for medicinal purposes? Come on people this is St. Louis! I understand the health benefits of of the substance but if we are to legalize this, it needs to be very, very, VERY strict in the distribution process of to whom, and how much.
