yes, alot of people say that marijuana is a "gateway" drug, but as long as you dont abuse this drug, then there will be no reason to go try any deadly drugs...i mean c'mon really? what are the side effects for marijuana? hungry, happy, sleepy! whats so wrong with that?? Not all people are fiends and want to go try the stronger drug because marijuana isnt getting them high anymore....if thats the case then pain pills and all kinds of drugs that are legal should be banished too right?

If you read the statistics, alcohol is one of the leading causes of death. You never hear of any deaths due to being under the influence of marijuana. Also we are wasting tax payers money and space in jails for arresting people that are in the possession of marijuana. Do people realize how marijuana helps people?

There are many reasons - the most significant is the amount of money spent chasing after marijuana dealers, etc. Do you know of one person who smoked pot and ran over and killed someone, compared to the DWI tragedies around the world. Alcohol does much more damage to the body and to innocent people.

It is funny how sexual predators and violent crime pffenders are let out early and tagged and tracked (until they inevitably commit another crime), while pot offenders spend mandatory sentences in prison for a crime that harmed absolutely no one. It's an outdated law that is barely clinging to the misconceptions that the government spreads. The only people touting the "dangers" of marijuana, are people who have always been too afraid to even try it. Granted it's definitely not for everyone, but we should be allowed to judge that for ourselves. The act of punishing the masses for the crimes of a few is what is going to be the downfall of our country, and the end of the "Land Of The Free".

I think it should be legal. People would stop drinking so much beer and like Whoopi said on The View, less car accidents, cause it makes you not want to move off the sofa!! Also it would bring in much needed tax money and people would stop smoking cigarettes so much that kill you. Nobody ever died from just smoking marijuana, because you don't keep lighting up one after the other like you do cigarettes. It's about time TEXAS takes a stand and legalizes it!! People would leave the other drugs alone if they knew they could smoke pot and not get in trouble.

But, there are " there are REAL hard "core" issues with the legalization. You get that "addictive group" to all kinds of drugs and alcohol and they make everyone look BAD, here. And, yep there would be some great tax revenues on this option, but would it be worth it all, with the wreckless and irresponsible behaviors we would see and the adding or "lacing" would certainly be something that would NOT any longer a standard with the legalization and FDA monitoring. But, again on second thought, these individuals that frequent the use, would NOT particularly like it being regulated or monitored because, they could not make the profits from the sell on the "black market" and law enforcement and the judicial system would have a whole new ball game to deal with these abusers getting it legal and on the "black market" at the same time to support their addiction craving. MADD organization and the law enforcement and judicial system have finally came around and up to date on just how important this issue actually is when it comes down to "Drinking and Driving "issue. We are always going to have abusers on either side of the issue, and close monitoring either way. "Does it not seem they have Bigger fish to Fry?" than concern with change of this law then concern for what type of "impact" you would have following that change? This brings to mind these pill mills all over town, and they are NOT seriously addressing this issue! Many of our young and addictive types are dying with these pill mills NOT being regulated well. Lots of BIG MONEY being made and it is VERY UNETHICAL medical practice. As far as I am concerned this is MURDER, the prescribing of controlled substances when they are not justified to be prescribed! My question here isjust why do they NOT better and properly regulate these "pill Mill clinics?" hhhmmmm Point to Ponder. And, you better! BC this problem is HUGE!! And, deserves "our attention" and of course it is your duty in America to pay attention and be involved with the "law making" Agenda on the subject of the pill mill clinics! I know these facts and have checked into it! I am also a licensed R.N. here in Texas.

Be careful if you should ever get stopped by Texas City police officer Mickey E. House because he will plant drugs in your vehicle.
