The harm it causes to people is minimal and the harm it causes to our tax money, justice system, and police force is excessive given that there are worse legal things being done as well as real problems, like theft, murder, etc. Legalizing marijuana isn't going to entice non-smokers just as making it illegal doesn't keep people from smoking.

I see a lot of comments about making alcohol illegal , prohibition didn't work. What we should remember is that lobbiists from the beer companies were responsible for pushing through the laws that made weed illegal to start with

There is no proof that marijuana is harmful (only if in excess like everything else). where cigarettes & alcohol are legal they're more harmful & highly addictive, however more profitable.
A US doctor got a grant some years back to study Cannabis/lung cancer.He found that there was little connection.He did find that if the pot smoker smoked crack and meth than yes there was a posotive connection to lung cancer.Most of your crack and meth users will most certanly get a disabilty check before they retire,just ask judge Joe Brown.

Yeah, Right!! You must have heard that from Bubba's sister-in-law's friend's cousin's neighbor who overheard it over at WalMart in the checkout out line. Have not seen anything from AMA reports on that cure.

If a person is not allowed to make the wrong choice, then the person does not have a choice. Liberty means having a choice. Long live liberty!

That's a bad twist on liberty. A person,knowing all the rules, has a right to make a wrong choice and getting caught and being fired. He has a choice to obey the rules or face ruining his future and career with a "Fired for drug related infraction" on his permanent work record. Stoners don't like it but with liberty for employees,there also has to be liberty for employers. Peace Bro.!!!!!!!

I guess that depends on how you define liberty. IMHO, liberty can be simply defined as "the freedom to do want you desire as long as you don't hurt others rights to do so in the process."

If I am understanding the context of your statement, I can guess that our definitions of liberty are pretty far apart. Perhaps you should review your Constitution and Bill of Rights for further details.

........And when you do hurt someone or get hurt at work , you are automatically checked for drugs. If you test hot for MJ, then what? In your mind,it's ok to use as long as you don't get caught or hurt someone so with that thinking it's OK to speed,steal,cheat on your taxes, drive under the influence,cheat on your spouse......as long as you don't hurt someone or get caught. Yeah,right!

You have completely missed my point and have put words in my mouth. Let me simplify this for your simple mind:
It is LEGAL to drink in this country at a certain age. Those of legal age may drink as long as they don't do things that harm others. Drinking and driving is proven to harm others in an extreme amount of cases, so it is illegal.
Smoking marijuana should be no different. As long as I don't harm anyone else, the government should not be able to tell me what to do with my time/body. Civil liberties have been completely destroyed with this so-called "War on Drugs," and is completely analogous (sorry to use such a large word, look it up) with the prohibition of alcohol: it doesn't work, costs too much money, and the only people benefiting are the criminals propagating it.
It's kinda sad when the criminals and politicians both agree to keep it illegal. Would you think a person making millions off of it's illegality would want it legal? Really, really try to think of that last statement. Drug dealers and politicians on the same side of the issue.
