This god given plant needs to be used to it's fullest extent, not just medicinal.
The abilities of this plant are so many that needs to be utilized, and not illegalized.

It's about freedom. The state doesn't have any more right to forbid marijuana than they do to require spinach.

Marijuana is a predominately benign drug with minimal negative side effects. It's not as potentially harmful a drug as, for example, alcohol. It's legalization would dramatically impact on the illegal drug trade, decrease the number of people in jails, and the (massive) profits it would generate could be used to finance many things including drug education and rehabilitation for people on much worse drugs. It's time this country got progressive (civilized) with it's drug policy.

I really don't think our communities here are ready for the legalization of marijuana. I am afraid for the youths of California if it does legalize. What happened to the thought that marijuana is the gateway drug? We need to find alternate routes for getting this country out of debt besides legalizing pot.

It turned out to be an example of the post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.

We already are witnessing the effects and continued failures in our school systems so do you think legalizing pot will help our children learn better?

I am a Marijuana advocate and believe that its medical value has been proven repeatedly but the real problem is the availability as with meth, cocaine ,ecstasy and other designer drugs that are available on the streets and in our schools DOES not help our children's learning skills, but rather hampers there abilities to concentrate, comprehend or understand. Once a child's learning capabilities become jaded that child losses the ability and opportunity to secede in our world as productive citizen. Our children are the future and ignoring anything that could affect their futures lives are our responsibilities.

Legalizing pot for general use sends the message to those same children; it is O.K. because you failed in school because you were too stoned to be able to concentrate in your class! Where do you think these children will end up?

We already have shootings, criminal activities Mexican mafias in Northern California as well as our natural resources depleted including cities and counties whose resources have dwindled down to nothing. Adding the burden of legalizing pot will only increase accidents, shootings and murder on the streets. It has already started and will continue until all citizens will be scared enough to never go out and lock themselves in their homes with loaded guns!

Is this the way we want to live? Packing hardware wherever we go? In addition, what about home invasions, they are also on the rise and will continue as long as pot is available to the public.

Dosen't anyone realize the fact that we are already turning into a third world nation and are eventually going to slip to the bottom.

The arguments for legalizing pot for the general
Publicís use and that it can be taxed says allot about how far our responsibilities to our children have failed.

With all of this in-fighting about legalizing or not legalizing pot has not met the supreme test which is will our Government accept legalizing pot for the general public or will this turn into another war against U.S. citizens!

Be careful what you wish for, you might get it and then some. Do you believe that our police, fire fighters, emergency medical people can do their jobs better when they are stoned?

Legalizing pot, will only increase crime on the streets not stop it?

I understand that many citizens believe our government has too much control over our lives, yet would you be willing to live in Mexico where the government in non-functional. We are at the threshold in our country where most citizens are demanding we take our country back! From who?
Taxpayers are stuck for bailing out everyone except ourselves. If any of you think our system is broken now just wait until it is available to anyone.
And the argument about we cna control it at home, really! where do you think the kids are getting the drugs from now?

Too many people aren't accurately calculating the consequences of having high power pot everywhere. Everywhere!

It should be federally legalized, not state. Legalizing by state only will increase our crime. No way around it.

All of your concerns are good one. The problem is that few people are aware of how strong today's pot is and just how much of this potent weed has mad if into the hands of kids under the age of 18. This is not good.

You're absolutely right about legalizing pot by state being a bad thing. I can't believe that legalizing pot will make all the profiteering go away. Over half the pot profits come for kids under 18. Pot is still going to be "illegal" hence "profitable" to sell to kids even after legalization only then pot will be so abundant that it will be impossible to keep it away from the kids. Pot is different from alcohol and tobacco in that it's far easier to produce and far more profitable. The people who are funding the pro pot campaign consider legalization of pot as just step one towards full legalization of all drugs.

Keep aligning yourself with the cartels watcher. We all see you doing it day after day and we all know why. How's your crop doing old man? Bumper year huh? Considering the lies you are still pushing I'd say it sounds like a profitable year for you.

By the way...you don't still think anyone believes this crap you are spewing do you? Time for some new lies from you watcher. These old ones of yours have been proven to be BS way too many times.

You might as well give your campaign to sound normal. Everyone knows what a pro drug idiot you are and how you want to turn America into mexico. With the way you keep putting your foot in your mouth you must love the taste of shoe leather.

I'm not the one pushing for the same policies as the cartels are. If anyone is going to turn this state into mexico it is you and your type. You all want the same outcome after all. How's your crop doing there amigo?
