WHAT ABOUT IT BEING A STEPPING STONE FOR MORE SERIOUS DRUGS

Think of all the crime that will cease. all these gangs in the US that thrive on the sale of pot would lose a large part of their revenue. It would decrease the violence in our border states, and put a hurting on the Mexican cartels. It would also bring in huge amounts of tax dollars,and reduce the amount of money the country has to spend on policing the drug. Its a win win situation

I have never used it ---but legalize it it, tax it and stop all this needless arrests of people and the US citizens paying for them to be locked up---make them do community service for heavens  sake not pay for them to sit in jail----we have people homeless and starving in this country for pete sakes.    Stop needless arrests and put the taxes from the sales into paying off the DEBT---not pad some governments officials pocket like the LOTTERY Has!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That sure did not get used foreduacation or our schools would not be in the situations they are in either.     So much mismanagement.    But it has been going on for years not just started!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I live in Ohio and use Hempz lotion. It is made with the oils and works real nice. keeps my skin as soft as Jergens would I really wish they would legalize the cultivation of hemp plants and products. Hemp can save the planet. Cannibus has so many uses and is a fast renewable resource. Paper products, food products, textiles....the list goes on. There is so much more to consider than just the "getting high " side of it. And yet cigarettes are legal.

The Government will never legalize it. The US already has the laziest people in the world and its only getting worse. Mary Jane would not help that problem it would hinder it. It would be a great way to get our economy back on track and create jobs, but i do not think it is in our best interest at this time.

Alcohol kills thousands yearly, yet it is still legal. I do not get that reasoning. Must be a bunch of drunks in the chain of command.

hey remember cannabis is not leagle because of the cotton farming,,The south could have never recovered if cotton was not used for clothing. Remember cannabis cloth wears like steel  just think cloth car seats made from this stuff would not wear out,,There are a lot more uses than a get high drug!!!!

Instead of raising taxes on small businesses and other job creators Obama should get off his **** and do something logical like push for nationwide legalization of marijuana and tax it like alcohol and tobacco already is. This way there would be no need to raise taxes and we would have a robust creation of new jobs from small business investment and the marijuana boom we surely would experience.

All states should legalize marijuana, it would save billions of dollars every year and just because its legal, dosent mean everyone in the country is going to run out buy some pot and get high.

More Americans these days are addicted to prescription drugs than any other time in our history, marijuana is a much better alternative for a pain reliever than most prescription drugs on the market. I don't smoke pot and don't plan on it in the future, but I would still support legalizing it. The legalization would cut down on crime and reduce the tax burden on us all.

Cool what's next? Cocaine? Heroin? Meth? I can hardly wait......we have 47% that needs something to do.

Just because it is legal on a state level does not make it legal on a federal level.

 

I am not going to put myself at risk for a federal prison sentence based on a technicality.

Marijuana must be legalized in US, particular in State of Washington.  It is a business decision.  There is a place specialized in growing pot for years: British Columbia, Canada.  Do you know how many billions of dollar US lost to BC each year?

"And as long as your not hurting anyone else it shouldn't be a issue for the government or anyone else."

 

first, due to your using i had to correct your spelling of shouldn't and government since you have diminished brain capacity and reduced motor control as you type.

 

and how many times have we heard that argument?  1. assault rifles and high-round magazine clips  2. not using seat belts  3. not wearing a motorcycle helmet  4. eating high-fat foods  5. eating a lot of sugar and drinking sodas  6. over-use of alcohol  7. not using a condom  8. poor dental care  9. not exercising enough  10. smoking cigars or cigarettes 11. inability to concentrate and get any higher education  12. mouth and lung cancers  13. heart disease etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

 

this argument makes me want to vomit all over my keyboard.  you ARE hurting someone else -you force up MY health and dental and car and liability insurance costs with your subsequent acts of stupidity - loss of self-control in eating, unprotected sex, auto accidents, mental health problems, graduating to harder drugs for even better highs, loss of concern about health maintenance, then back to alcohol and cigarettes. 

 

you start to cost more to society and then you begin to steal, join gangs and end up in prisons that cost $50k per year for your incarceration and much more when you go psychotic and need a mental institution.  the costs of your under-education due to reduced brain capacity is massively expensive on a national scale.   like any other capitalist business they won't tell you about all of these risks and behaviors but will use your weakness to profit off of you as an addict and leave the clean-up costs to the taxpayers.  stoners lose all motivation and drive and become leeches on their families and society.

 

pack up and move to Jamaica, or maybe we can make California a non-state like Puerto Rico and confine you there where you will all be known as "dude" or his or her "dudeness."  this is a tragedy that will weaken our great nation.  wake up and smell the coffee .... not the cannabis ....

 

p.s. and yes i have EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE of the above as I bought, sold, used and abused weed for over 15 years back in the day until i realized the toll it was taking and went cold turkey ... an ounce of prevention is worth a pound (or kilo) of cure ... wake up and wise up.

What everyone is failing to realize is that the Gov't, states included, will give you just enough rope to hang yourself! Marijuana will probably be legalized nationwide eventually, BUT the things you can do while high and the places you do it at will be strictly enforced. Basically, what I'm saying is that we don't tolerate drunk people in public and I can see many laws coming to kill your buzz if you plan on being high in public.

Marijuana should be legal for all adults,its the safest drug you can put in your body.And as long as your not hurting anyone else it shouldnt be a issue for the goverment or anyone else.If Americans were allowed to grow a small amount for personal use the drug cartels would go out of business,people would stop getting killed over it.The drug is safe the big money behind it fuels lots of crime.Not only that but industral hemp makes better paper and fabric with less effort and better for the enviroment.It is rated as a drug with no medical value,but yet their are 18 states that have medicial marijuana kind of a double standard.Why should it be rated worse than meth,coke or opates thats just stupid.Americas number one drug booze is one of the worse things you can put in your body,and fuels lots domestic violence,and health problems.Time to give people their own choice,I have been smoking for 38 years and am in good shape,booze caused many more problems in my life so I no longer drink.But drinking is a choice too,an I have nothing aginst it but its not for me. peace out

I'll be 62 next week. Don't drink, don't smoke, don't do drugs. Never....well, got drunk once when I was in the Navy.  Don't remember a thing about that night but was horribly sick the next day. You guys call this fun why?  Anyway, I'm all for legalizing all drugs.  I believe in consistency.  Alcohol IS a drug. It's beyond me how millions of people can drink "legal beverages" and be against other forms of self medication. pretty hypocritical.

Having said that, I can't figure out why anyone with a brain would use ANY of it. Nancy Reagan was right, just say NO.  Save your money and enjoy life with a clear mind.

  Will no smoking bans in restaurants and bars apply to pot on Dec 6 in WA when it becomes legal to posses an ounce? If a bar owner says go ahead and light up will people object since there are no bad proven side effects from second hand pot smoke?
