No one said it's ok to break the law. However; it is ok to change the law if you don't believe it is just.

At least it would be legal. Also, you advocating continuing jailing people which is also very, very, very costly to society. I would rather see the money spent for more humane reasons.

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.
Pot is Not addictive...not sure where you are getting your information, but it isn't correct. What do you think the long term results of all these prescriptions are doing to us long term? One of the reasons it's not legal is that too many of our public officials supplement their paychecks by selling what they confiscate from the public!

I was a heroin addict for seven years. Pretty much went hard with everything atone point. Now I have been clean 2 years from heroin and I started smoking shortyl after quitting heroin. I think it really helps me not go back to opiates. I'm an addict and can use marijuana safely and responsibly.

yes because, the use of marijuana for treating everything from cancer to menstrual cramps and
marijuana could be used to treat migraine headaches, schizophrenia, asthma, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and general pain.

I think it should either be decriminalized and just forgotten about...authorities just turning a blind eye to it...

Or make it legal and see what entrepreneurs can do with it...not only to smoke but as a raw material...our nation is in a down turn and we need new solutions..although maligned by the liberal media Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell both support industrial hemp.

No one is saying that makes it right. I'm saying that people should push for decriminalization. No one wants legal problems. Life is tough enough.

I'm sure you said the same thing when you were all doped up on heroin too.

This guy from the Metro-east sells custom grow lights. He uses CFL bulbs in a "Double-bulb" reflector that uses 75% less electricity than a HID incandescent, but with equivalent lumens to a 1,000 Watt HID, for only 100 bucks! It's great for growing anything indoors![Not for use growing marijuana- it's illegal). Check it out at: http://stlouis.craigslist.org/grd/3859979621....

Laws were made to be broken most often because they were bad laws from the git go. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

We already have forced rehab it's call prison and the taxpayer gets to foot the bill for it. Not a good plan.

WTF, Were going to make drinking a beer illegal again??? Wow that worked really well during prohibition. I guess I should get the still up and running since these dumb bastards still don't get it. I will make a ton of money and the taxpayer gets nothing. Not a good plan.

Part of the problem is that we have way too many laws that were made for the wrong reasons. These laws simply make no sense. Pot should never have been made illegal period. Hemp is illegal and Du Pont get to sell nylon ropes. Most laws are about money not protecting the people of this great country. Money up front and then the taxpayer get screwed when someone is put in prison. After the person get out they can't find a job and they wind up back in prison. Even after someone pays their so-called debt to society their criminal background follows them around for the rest of their lives. Not a good plan.
