Yeah, tax it! Then tax cocaine! Tax heroin! Tax acid! Heck, let's just decriminalize everything and tax it!
Let's see..... 15% tax on marijuana, 25% on crack and powder cocaine, 35% on heroin!
Since we are decriminalizing everything, we need to come up with a flat tax for "former crimes." Let's say $500 for simple assault.
$5000 for armed robbery, or 50%, whichever is greater.
$50000 for murder, unless it is a child, public official or celebrity, then you would have to pay more!

Ok, sarcasm complete....

that reason being that it was poised to take the place of timber for the production of paper. the legislators of the time took their money from the "timber barons" and made hemp illegal.

Bullshit. Please tell me exactly what that 'very good reason' is then? It's pot...we arent talking about acid or crack here. It's harmless. The only reason it was made illegal was because of politics and big business, it was perfectly legal for years.

and what is a good reason? other states have it. if they are making it legal you cant say yes its right in this state but wrong in this state. we are the united states not a half this half that country. i know that some states like California are more progressive than most but to allow it in one state opens up doors for other states. its is just that some states will get it before others for many different reasons. and yes there will be states that dont allow it im sure. i am keeping this simple. i am not going into any of the politics around this issue. there are normal folks on topix that dont care about all that but would like to express their opinions. i am not saying i am for or against but will take it into consideration because this world is changing and the economy is so bad. we cannot be ignorant about this subject because regardless what we argue about legal or illegal it doesnt matter. It seems that eventually it will be legal considering the way this country is. medical marijuana is in the process of decision in this state. meth is a huge problem in this state. do you think these drugs are the same? which one should be illegal? and why did you pick that one? which one actually has potential to help people? we need to evaluate our thoughts of what can be legal and illegal. which is more damaging to yourself and to others? what is the difference in marijuana and alcohol other than what it is made of. alcohol is not illegal but yet it kills. it kills your body and corrupt your mind. it can cause you to kill others also in different ways. it is addictive. it is a drug even though it is not considered a drug. so what makes this legal and marijuana illegal? again I am not for or against but just taking it all into consideration. thats what we all should do before we get on our high horses and get on here being all high and mighty. this is a serious topic that might be our future. even though there are baby steps such as starting out with medical marijuana it allows us to figure out what the future in our state might be.

So was alcahol at the beginning of the 20th century. That didn't work. The point being there is a certain element of people that will find it, grow it in some way. So who benefits the provider does. All we are doing is locking up or fineing the user. This costs US money to do. In the process they may lose their jobs. Then they are either on welfare or homeless. I am not advocateing anything except marijuana. The cases are blogging the court system, and using court appointed lawyers again at the cost to US

yea but you have to think too that not everyone is going to go out and do it. there are other drugs out there and not everyone does them. you have a choice in your life what you do. just because it is legal dont mean it is something that you have try. if it is legal not every person will try it no matter if it is legal. as for being a medical remedy, think of it this away. you take a pill for many many years and you will accumulate side effects that might shut down some of your vital organs or give you other problems. an example is painkillers. they are highly addictive and only cure the pain for a short time. marijuana would be a better short term relief for pain. it wont eat the lining of your stomach or make your teeth fall out, cause weight loss and nausea. these are long term effects but if you get on those pills the addiction leads to those side effects. if you are like me then you know many people that are addicted to pain killers. i think I know more than those addicted to meth. people hide who they are and you wouldnt believe that even the high society people in union city do these things. a dopehead is a dopehead. just because you have money doesnt mean it makes it right and you get another label. there are a lot of areas that deal with this topic. as i said before consideration is all that needs to be thought of

You don't need the junk just like you don't need tobacco or alcohol. You need food and water. Case closed.

i used to blaze up daily until about a year ago and i do support the idea of legal marijuana to ages 21 and older. under 21 and caught you would face same penalties as today.
I support the idea because i smoked pot since i was 16 years old and not once did i ever get the urge to pick up a beer a little pot and a place to be and i was good to go
some say it makes you dumb well it does some but for me i was no different then before
so for me a thumbs up on this its not that bad and it is a way better intoxicant to be on then alcohol
