Cigarette manufacturers can produce it and sell it in the states local ABC (Alcohol control center). It can be taxed by the state. It's not going to kill you (if you use it responsibly). Age limit can be set at 25.

With the wide avilibility and widespread use, some control is needed and the state could use te tax revenue. Also could be a good use of former tobacco farms.

More people die from alcohol related use than from smoking cigarettes or marijuana. If it's legal, this might as well be.

marijuana should be legalized because it will create more jobs and help with the economy, if california can make millions in a year than it show's that marijuana is the best cash crop to use for this economic problem we have!!

there are worse things to worry about, and worse things to do to your body with legal substance (alcohol, fast food, over the counter pain killers)

Here are a few things from the site linked below. It lists numerous diseases and illnesses that are helped with marijuana.

"Stops breast cancer from spreading."

"Reduces tumors and kills cancer cells for brain cancer."

"Reduces tumors and slows cancers growth for lung cancer."

It should be legal because it hasnt been the cause of any humans death and it also would bring the crime rate down because most of the people who are arrested for marijuana are user of the drug. i do think there should be an age limit on it which should be the age of 18.

marijuana is bad for your health but you never heard of anyone dying of marijuana. Marijuana is a great feeling and should be legal in Winston Salem

I support the legalization in all states except the southeast. The point being those redneck bags of trash cannot control their alcohol consumption now. Go ahead and let the filth get high and drive their damn pick ups on the road. We need to have people control not alcohol or drug control.
