    If supply is sorted out and a good roadside test is found for drivers, sure. Otherwise no.

    There is honestly no good reason for someone to go to prison for smoking marijuana. Potheads are practically harmless...

    as long as alcohol is legal........then pot should be too.
    alcohol causes MANY more problems, yet it's legal.

    Alcohol is actually worse for your body than pot, non? It is more damaging, if I recall correctly.

    In any case I am under the impression that marijuana should be made legal past a certain age, the same at alcohol - as much as I'm sure my class mates would dislike this response, somehow imbibing mind altering substances while your brain is still developing does not seem the most intelligent action.

    Yes, I believe that pot should be legal. It actually helps people who are in pain or even have ADHD. Not only that, but overall it would be better for the economy if it was regulated. Not only will the government be harvesting trillions from us because a lot more people smoke it than you think. Also, it would clear out the jails/prisons to where we would not have to be paying for the cost of living for the people in there.
    There is no absolute right and wrong. People judge as right what they personally consider pleasant, and judge as wrong what they personally consider unpleasant. Convincing others of what is right cannot be equated with teaching the Truth. It is just teaching others to agree with you. It is not about putting an end to error, but putting an end to opinions contrary to your own perceptions.

    By all means, legalize it. Just regulate it like we do with Ciggs and Booze. It would do some serious good for the tax rolls, plus gardening is very therapeutic in many cases, and it would give some folks something constructive and financially viable to do. That and make a whole heap of room inside our prisons for those who definitely should not be mixing with the rest of society...

    According to Brian from Family Guy, pot is illegal because the paper/logging industry doesn't want the competition from Hemp.

    I think they should decriminalize it; not legalize. Government rakes in taxes for EVERYTHING already; I would not want to pay taxes on my weed as well. Plus the quality would most likely be a lower grade that they issue, purposely, to keep you buying more frequently.

    I deffinately think that if alcohol is legal, they should at least decriminalize pot. I've heard of a lot more issues with drunk people (Murders, Assualts, Theft, etc.) than with someone who's stoned..... I'm sure there's stories out there involving criminal activity with an individual who's stoned; but honestly, I've never heard of one. Just saying.

    Plus I live in the Weed capitol of the world! Everyone thinks it's Amsterdamn, but take a look at who's won the chronic cup the most years in a row.... BC.
    9 out of 10 people who live here either use, or have used in their lifetime. So with the vast majority on the other side, would only make sense to decriminalize.

    However; I do think the age limit would be appropriate. 18 sounds more reasonable than 19 tho, since ur technically considered an adult at the age of 18 anyway.

    I don't think that saying that "If this is legal - then this must be that aswell' is such a good 'reason'/argument for it.
    If alcohol came today it wouldn't become legal... Not even coffee would be legal if it would come out today!


    Alcohol have just been around us for too long, that's why it can't be illegal, while other things, that may be worse or not, still are.

    Comparing marijuana to alcohol is not the way to go about legalising it. Comparing your country with it illegal to a country with it legal, is.

    And comparing the damage done by two doesn't work well since you have to start discussing average doesage, priority of importance when it comes to the bodies organs etc. If you really want to compare it to another drug, nicotine would probably be the best choice since they both effect the same bodily systems.

    If public services are used to fulfill demand then it needs to be taxed. Roads used to transport it? It needs to be taxed. If you have universal government healthcare, it needs to be taxed (and no its not good for you).

    And if you're in the US, your taxes are fairly small.

    On a more serious note, I agree with Matty that pot should be decriminalized; not legalized. People will use pot whether it's illegal or legal. If they use it while it's illegal, they could be fined and sent to jail, when there are more important criminals that need the attention. And I agree that stoners are practically harmless. All they wanna do is chill and eat cheetos for hours on end; I've honestly never heard of someone committing a legit crime while stoned (and I know quite a lot of people who smoke it).

    But on the other hand, legalization would create taxes, mass-production, and could screw up the economy more than it already is. IMO, even an age restriction wouldn't help much against teenage smoking. This is where the whole "if you can't have it, you want it more" scenario comes in. Not only that, but people will be less likely to want to go to school or get a job if they were able to get stoned whenever they pleased.

    Not only that, but i hear it makes a better bio-fuel source than corn. But i agree with a lot of people here that it should be legalized/decriminalized. There's some good uses for this plant besides the medicinal benefits.
    Man that is whack!

    well, that's just part of the reason. there are others.......such as, it would help the U.S. get out of debt. taxing pot would create MASSIVE cash flow.
    anyways, the point is, it's just kinda silly to have alcohol legal, but not pot.
    that's like saying "it's legal to KILL someone, but if you just HURT someone, you will go to jail"........ it just makes no sense to me.

    If alcohol came today it wouldn't become legal...
    that's a maybe *shrug*

    Not even coffee would be legal if it would come out today!
    i doubt that. energy drinks are 10x worse than coffee, and the have just started to come out relatively recently....they are legal.

    Alcohol have just been around us for too long, that's why it can't be illegal, while other things, that may be worse or not, still are.
    Marijuana has been used as an agent for achieving euphoria since ancient times; it was described in a Chinese medical compendium traditionally considered to date from 2737 B.C. Its use spread from China to India and then to N Africa and reached Europe at least as early as A.D. 500.

    from wiki: "Contemporary uses of marijuana and cannabis are as recreational drug, as religious rite, as spiritual rite, and as medicine; the earliest recorded uses date from the 3rd millennium BC"

    so.......it's been around for quite some time :P

    What if all of the people that started smoking this legal marijuana stopped working? We'd end up being worse off, even WITH the tax on it. I'm not an Economics major or anything, so correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't employment more of an issue in the US than current taxes (or lack thereof)?

    ...Wow really? I didn't say that. I meant that people that suddenly started buying pot just because it's legal may not be the most active people to begin with, and it could easily deter them from keeping steady jobs. Chances are that the more intelligent employees will know to stay away from it (or will be more responsible with it), but there's always the chance that people (especially the teens) will smoke it "just cuz they can", or "just for the hell of it". You may know people who smoke and have jobs, and that's all fine and dandy, but there are also people who don't.

    This. Criminalizing things with a demand just creates a black market that funds organized crime, terrorism, and all sorts of nasty stuff.

    who does something ONLY because it's legal if they have no interest in it at all??
    people who wanna smoke, smoke. they all ready do it, doesn't matter if it's legal or not. people who don't wanna smoke, don't smoke.
    some people try it a few times, and decide it's not for them...pres Clinton anyone?

    check this out. make sure you at least watch from 1:50 to the end.

    i'm not a huge ron paul fan, but i thought he nailed it here.

    Chances are that the more intelligent employees will know to stay away from it
    there you go stereo-typing again. we all know that intelligent people stay away from drugs, right?? only dumb people use drugs :P

    but there's always the chance that people (especially the teens) will smoke it "just cuz they can", or "just for the hell of it".
    obviously we would have an age limit, just like we do with alcohol. it wouldn't be legal for a 13 year old to smoke it.

    You may know people who smoke and have jobs, and that's all fine and dandy, but there are also people who don't.
    correct, and guess what?? they do it even though it's illegal.

    Not everybody will go out and buy it just because it's legal. Even illegal, if they want to use it, they will use it.

    If it became legal I know I wouldn't use it *shrug* Well, I would once or twice to see if it actually effects my epilepsy but that's a different matter.

    Just because something is suddenly legal doesn't mean people will start using and abusing it, and if they're the type who jump at the chance to buy it because it's legal I'm willing to bet they would be smoking it if it was illegal too.

    I'm not sure if this had a point or not o.0 Sorry if it's nonsensical I'm kinda out of it.
