Would legalizing marijuana be the best thing for America? I"d give my own argument but I don"t want to harsh my buzz man

The only reason I am anti-marijuana is because every pothead I knew was drating annoying as hell. It may be immature and petty, but I could care less.

I don`t give two s.hits whether it gets legalized or not. When I buy weed, there`s no hassle and there aren`t any taxes, and I always smoke at home, so I`m not worried about getting caught by the police. It sucks that people get thrown in prison for selling/possessing it though. It`s a waste of taxpayer dollars to put such petty criminals away when they should be keeping cells available for violent criminals.

Carmium, you obviously dont know anyone who grows decent chron, the majority are not criminals in the sense you seem to think. That would make me just as criminal as them for smoking it as they are for growing it.

Just because they grow doesnt mean they`re thug no good criminals, I know guys who do it for a living others just for some extra cash and a lot of these guys live normal lives and have families.

There will always be useless potheads lying around just as there have always been useless drunks lying around - I don`t see a big difference. I`m for taking the growing of MJ out of the hands of the criminal element and saving many lives and billions in police costs every year. The dope itself, I couldn`t care less about.

Honestly, there`s nothing wrong with the weed I get now, legal or not it really wont change much for me.

Then even more reason to legalize, those that don`t need it (exacerbating their problems) couldn`t get it. Why, after all these years are we still depending on the ideas of SO long ago? Why can`t we even grow hemp? Which has many great qualities, none of which get you high? Why the stigma on that? I like Ron Paul more and more.

Again, pot is not anything like heroin. It`s not a "Gateway drug" If you want to try heroin then you will, you could have bypassed pot altogether. If you like coke, pot is not for you as it has downing effect. I am surprised at all the attitude here. Has the christian right flown up the bums of America?

@geckohead there is a proven link that those who have a pred disposition to mental illnesses can be triggered by weed. legalising it and increasing it`s use exacerbates the potential skizos

Personally though legalise all drugs! prohibition dosent work legalise it and tax it destroy the crime surrounding it(which fund human trafficking and guns) and lower my taxes instead. btw go amsterdam walking round everyone just feels retarded....

It was easier for me to get hold of cannabis than it was alcohol or fags before I was of age.

I think it`s a great idea. I`m certainly not skitzoid, even after 35 years of the stuff. You`d never know it by lookin` at me, I could be your best friend and you would NEVER know, so take your crappy elitist attitude and jump in a lake.

There are more important things to worry about than pot being legal. Revenue wouldn`t be used to pay off debt or lower other taxes or anything like that. It`ll go to fund personal projects and corporations like most of it does now. Plus a nice raise for themselves.

Gosh, Gerry, maybe you should move to a smarter nation. Or run for office, so we can all benefit from your brilliance. Point of fact: William Randolph Hurst is the reason pot is classified as a drug. He didn`t want hemp growers to compete with his paper mill fortune.

@ DingDingDong - yes it used to be easy to get a medical marijuana card in california. Still is...to get the card. Getting it filled is another matter. The state and Feds have been shutting down the dispensaries. They cannot be within a mile of a school or a church or a daycare or or or or etc. Licquor stores can be acrossed the street from any of those establishments, but not private member dispensaries that do NOT let the general public in, certainly not children.

so, it`s back to buying it illegally.

I`d bet that if someone developed a technology to quickly report someone`s THC blood content for a roadside stop there would be more support.

@Gerry1of1 I think (hope) you`re wrong about pot never being legal. The tide is already changing. Look at California, last time I was there I was offered a "medical" card, no problem. Soon it will be legal, I think. Altho, it still needs to be changed on the federal level....hmmm maybe you`re right. But here is a graph:

Pot will not be legalized because our prison system is mostly Privatised now. The Prison Corporations make far too much money housing non-violent drug offenders. They will never allow it to be legalized. They`ll dump money via lobbyists on politicians to keep it illegal.

Welcome to the U.C.A. - United Corporations of America.

Thanks to Ron & Nancy Reagan, the harmless and non addictive substance marijuana is a Class A narcotic.

USA is indeed a stupid, stupid nation. Reality and fact have nothing to do with out justice system or our system of laws and government.

@ pigsnout5 I see what you are getting at.
I think it might means in the top five of 39 states.

So top cash crop in 12, top 3rd in 18, and top 5th in 9. It`s just rolling over the previous?

Oh my.... Heh.

Yeah, that`s kinda badly worded. I presume they mean "in the top 3" and "in the top 5" respectively.

legalization would be a big boost to a legal economy, i.e., farmers, processing plants, advertising, shipping, etc. however legalization would be a big bust to the people who confiscate it and traffic in it, i.e., dishonest cops and politicians. and just think of what legalization would do to the mexican cartels. most people i know smoke it anyway, so make it legal and tax it. put the bad guys out of business.

@Quik2TheStab. you know that ibuprofen is lethal to the liver in large enough doses, don`t you? and antidepressants are physically addicting, otherwise they wouldn`t caution not to stop cold turkey. i know personally that abrupt stopping of antidepressants causes grand mal seizures. weed doesn`t do either of those things.

I COMPLETELY agree with this. I`d like to know how much cash is sent out of the country for marijuana. Just keeping that cash in the states would make a difference. The war on drugs has caused way more damage than any amount of marijuana smoking could cause.
I`ve been to Amsterdam, it was really really nice. I don`t smoke, but I didn`t see any affects of it there. I`m all for individual freedom, if it doesn`t greatly affect others, do whatever you want to your own body.

Also, Ron Paul 2012!!!!

Quick2TheStab: And a doctor wouldn`t prescribe Ambien for kidney stones. The point is that marijuana, when properly prescribed, can help relieve pain for certain individuals. It helped my grandmother deal with her cancer.

@Quik2TheStab

Those are all drugs too, and some of them can even create addiction.

It all boils down to letting people do whatever they want with their bodies.

Smoker`s need to cut the excuse bull poo, it should be legal but when you sit there spouting your ignorant nonsense it hurts your case,my #1 reason for thinking it should be legal is that people get labeled as bad people for smoking pot when they`re really not.

It wouldn`t fix the economy, and it`s not good for you. Hallucinogens are not a replacement for ibuprofen, antidepressants, or any of the other drugs people like to replace with weed.

In cases of bipolar disorder, marijuana actually counteracts the medication. Shut the hell up about your stupid drugs.

@skullgrin I see your point man, but I thought the idea of legalising it was to have tax on it, thus making even more sense to do so?

I`ve never done pot in my life and I really don`t get recreational drug use. But it helped my grandmother immensely when she was dying of cancer. That, plus all the pointless arrests and the violence in Mexico, are all excellent reasons to legalize it.

I don`t think smoking is for everyone. It doesn`t agree with some people. That however can be said for anything, and I agree that regulation rather than prohibition is the way forwards. Just look at the difference in binge drinking culture between the Uk and France for example, and though it`s not prohibition VS. regulation, in france their attitude to alcohol RADICALLY changes the abuse of it (ie - vastly, vastly less)

this is all fine and dandy, but what the info graphic doesnt tell you is how much money would be lost from the government selling it tax free, how much the pharmaceutical business would lose due to people not needing basic medicine like tylenol anymore, etc etc.

Thats why its not legal....
