IBTL!!! lol, jk

I think it's ok for those who need it. not recreationally. you should need a liscense and it should be registered when it is bought so nobody goes overboard. legalized or not, people will abuse it equally.

Agreed. Maybe if it was legalized and taxed, it might stimulate this economy!

Re: Legalize Marijuana?

The double standard has existed far too long. Any adult can buy a legal Class 2 narcotic by walking into a liquor store, but you go to jail if you have another Class 2 narcotic. Unfortunately it'll be awhile longer before it's actually legalized, if ever, but decriminalized would be something I would expect out of a second Obama term. Any politicians younger than 60 came through the 60's [70's, and 80's] and like our President, most on them inhaled.

Re: Legalize Marijuana?

All societies had/have their drugs, humans want drugs and nobody has something to do to what people do with their bodies.
Alcohol kills more than all drugs together, people get drunk, drive and kill whole families.
Legalizing drugs means there'll be no more drug dealers and honest people who only want to get high won't have to deal with bad guys.

Nope I don't use drugs but i tried some because life is learning, passing through life without experiencing something that all cultures did/do is dumb cause I'd have no opinion about something so big.I practice a lot of sports and being alive is awesome to me, I don't want my body ruinned because of a stupid "high" moment still our bodies are ours and nobody in the world should decide what we can use or not, expecially politicians.

My only problem with drugs is dumb people use them at the streets and kill inocents, so the problem is not drugs but dumb people.
There should be laws only about using drugs at the streets.We can buy and use them IN THE HOUSE but if people are using or are high at the streets............JAIL.

It doesn't matter how many laws there are all societies will always take drugs so trying to prohibite something that people want is dumb and a waste of money.
Legalize drugs and use their taxes to help drug addicteds would be really better than having crap cops/politicians making money along with drug dealers.

My only thought is = Nobody in the world tells me what I can take or not, that's my body and my life but if I use drugs in public or cause any harm to other people = JAIL.

New Jersey made it legal to be prescribed for patients with a very few specific ailments, and then never allowed anyone in the state to actually legally distribute it. So, no one in New Jersey has it legally. It should be fully legal IMHO.

Re: Legalize Marijuana?

Drugs should remain illegal until we can gaurentee source. You guys are seriously misguided if you think the effects of marijuana or people being dumb with it are the reason its illegal. Cigarettes and alcohol are far more destructive, yet they are perfectly acceptable

Re: Legalize Marijuana?

i dont smoke it (though 75%+ of my friends do) but i say legalize. i mean, all it does is make people tired and hungry, how much harm could it really cause? like i said, i dont smoke, but if someone else wants to, they have that right

People buy cars and drive over kids ...let's prohibit cars
People eat M&Ms and spit them in their neighbours backyard ...let's prohibit M&Ms

Nope....we should prohibit dumb people, put them in jail.
People can't face the truth of their dumbness and blame things for what they do.

Re: Legalize Marijuana?

If people went to jail for being dumb I think they would be a bit overcrowded??

Yep but we should put in jail dumb people who DID something bad to other people.
I said dumb people get drunk and drive their cars...........jail.
If they get drunk and do nothing besides puking....no jail.

Besides that jail IS already crowded.
NASA guys should find a way to shrink all guys in jail
