    1) He didn`t say legalize pot. He`s saying that it shouldn`t be as harshly penalized.

    2) I personally can`t believe this guy still has a platform to say anything. After what he said about Haiti, I`m surprised he wasn`t pulled off the air. (Oh, wait. He`s his own boss, isn`t he?)

    he right about the prosecution of a `harmless` drug. And any that claims it a "gateway" drug needs their head examined. When one criminalization of a `drug` that doesn`t harm the human body or mind, and has been proven by may a study, including three by the US government (which by the way denied, and squashed the results of the studies because they refuted ALL the myths that they created about this drug. And included befits that ran against American big pharma)

    And along MJ, hemp was also criminalized, because it was take profits from the oil, textile, lumber, food, rope industries that where starting up in the mid to late 19th century.

    This "war on drugs" is nothing more than a cover for the American Corporations to reap and rape the American government and it`s people, it`s a petty you`ll fall for your politicians song and dance. Such is the corporate `tune`...

    You must be smoking some good poo, man.

    Corporations started the drug war? So they could profit off of....what exactly? Good thing you`re shining the light, man, cause we`d all sure be lost if it weren`t for conspiracy nuts like you to lead us out of the darkness. *rolls eyes*

    as someone who smokes regularly I CANNOT believe that marijuana is illegal and alcohol is legal.

    Worst thing I`ve ever said the next morning after drinking: "Holy poo what did I do last night, I don`t remember anything, *vomit* sure hope I didn`t drive home"

    Worst thing I`ve ever said the next morning after smoking: "Man I should not have ordered that pizza, great night sleep though"

    The only reason alcohol is legal is because we already have an infrastructure of huge corporations in place which supply it to our demanding public. The only reason marijuana is still illegal is because these same corporations and tobacco companies are against and help fund these anti drug campaigns that demonize weed all while peddling a more dangerous product.

    Frankly it disgusts me and if half the people who vehemently disapprove of marijuana had tried it even once they would be left scratching their heads as to why it is illegal and alcohol is.

    @KPres While I`m not sure about corporations `starting` the war on drugs, they certainly do help in it`s continuation. The fact is, many pharmaceutical companies would go under if marijuana was made legal. Textile companies who produce everything from clothing to crash-tested plastics would be devastated and demolished if marijuana were to be made legal. Not to mention that prisons ARE a big business here in the states... Lock more people up, get more grants from the government, make more money; wash, rinse, repeat.

    He didn`t say he was for legalization, He said he was against the harsher punishments for possession of more than an ounce or two. If we can force DUI drivers to take sobriety courses, No matter how much alcohol they possessed at the time they were arrested, Then why isn`t this done for those that possess marijuana and keep the jails and prisons for the real maniacs.

    Here do a little reading with an open mind on why Marijuana is illegal. Also yes for some of you. It has resources to back it`s claim before you just blow off the article out of prejudice.

    For all you goofs out there do you really think drugs like oxycotton and valium are better for you than hemp?

    Actually we do lock up people with DUIs. But Mr. Robinson is correct (for once). This policy IS unfortunately fostering organized crime and it is one hell of an investment. It`s no wonder why people are gradually becoming in favor of legalizing it.

    With a gasp myself, I have to say that I agree in this case with Crakr.

    In the context that Pat is speaking and without paraphrasing, he is against the mandatory sentencing of people convicted of drug possession - *not* the illegality of drugs.

    I don`t use drugs - never have, and never will - but the War on Drugs is a useless, expensive endeavor that will never succeed.

    But play devil`s advocate for a moment - say for some reason the US legalized pot and taxed it as so many people want. There can only be two simultaneous outcomes:

    (1) As noted, the taxation would be so high that it would not stop the illegal drug trade - people still will get it illegally to get it cheaper, and (2) the smuggling of drugs across the US borders would radically change to something much worse. What, do you think the smugglers are going to give up a lucrative trade? They would just go to heroin or cocaine for higher profits.

    It`s funny how that now we`re close to eventually legalizing it, the people who didn`t care about taxes if it was legal anre now complaining that taxing it wouldn`t be fair to dope smokers. I tell you what, if this loony pecker (Robertson) is for it, then I am totaly against it. That sob is the worst thing to happen to Christianity since the inquisition. Yes, worse than the WBC, because people still take this bastard seriously.

    Has there ever been such a loaded make-believe line? You can`t even name a sin. How about that computer you sit in front of every day hasn`t that superceded the 1st 2nd and 3rd commandments?
