"i dont see how they managed to make a plant illegal anyway"

Amen!

How many people have died from over dosing(sp?) on pot? 0.

How many people die from too much drinking? A lot!

How many people die from actually drugs? Plenty.

I could go on and on but no real point. Legal or not people can't really do much about it.

He's angry because he can't smoke his weed... what a retard.

Legalisation of Cannabis/Marijuana/Ganja should be approved but not because everyone are doing it or because criminals are selling the stuff... it should be legalised because people who take narcotics to ease the pain have more chance of dying from internal bleeding then someone who smoke pot has chance of dying of cancer.

I'm against a full blown legalisation of marijuanaas because I doubt any good would come out of it but if it would be sold as a painkiller in drug stores it could solve part of the economic crisis and help people enjoy life a little bit more.

But they already got aspirins so they dont really care.

That being said. Legalize the poo. That way the gov. can tax it like they do tobacco. It isn't worse than alcohol. The government will never get rid of marijuana anyway. In order for laws to be truly effective, a vast majority of the population has to be strongly against the action.

I don't smoke (I would rather drink). But the few times I try weed, I was actually dissapointed by the effects. Truth is, I think being drunk is much more dangerous than being stoned. That is probably why I don't smoke, I like spinning when I am drunk. Plus, good quality ale tastes much better than smoke.

Baal, 4) It's easier to make things illegal if they haven't been legal first.

Weed has been legal for centuries. It's only been illegal since 1937. Also, the war on drugs is technically against our own constitution, as we have the ammendment against prohibition.

You're talking about an entire order of magnitude of difference here.

"It is not unreasonable not to legalize marijuana" <-- Strongest position you can reasonably claim I've taken tonight.

"You want to eradicate all personality because you don't see the point in pot" <-- Position you seem to have taken.

Yes, whether or not you should wear that blue shirt today or order pizza or chicken should be set in stone.

It's almost as if you think "Hey I can't have pot, guess life is over". Can you seriously not think of life in a context that doesn't involve pot?

Are you SERIOUSLY suggesting that the only fundamental decision you can make in life is whether or not to smoke pot?

sorry baal, in case their was a misunderstanding i was arguing with you about "The whole point of free will, is that you can choose to do as you wish. If you can be so easily manipulated into doing what others wish, it's pointless getting uppity about whether or not you're living in a truly free society because you can't feed yourselves poison like all the cool kids are doing these days."
where you basically say free will is pointless if people make the wrong choice.

Acthrellis.
1) You mean prohibition.
2) Depends what you mean by worked. There was less drinking.
3) The consumption in Saudi Arabia (including international estimates on illegal use) is at 5 units per year compared to the UK's 500 units per year.
4) It's easier to make things illegal if they haven't been legal first.

Prohibition tried to make a hundred million users go cold turkey. It didn't work well enough to warrant keeping the restrictions.

Inhibition didn't work in the 20's... so they re-legalized alchohol... what makes them think that it's gonna work now? Also, see my comment a few weeks ago: Harvard Economist on Why Pot Should be Legalized

I've tried pot, I've tried alcohol, ive had too much of both.
On to much alcohol I've tossed stuff after my bf in incredible rage, gotten naked on cam in front of strangers, made relations and sex I didn't really want ec ec ec you know how it is.
On to much pot, I've eaten so I felt sick, gotten angst attacks, been unable to tell where I was, and been unable to speak.
Now... what is worst? mainly.. What is worst for other people and my future?

On a side note: I'm not to found of eighter on them, I prefer the stuff that really is bad for you.

All this silly laws and stay away from stuff that's they can't even say why it's so bad, kinda makes me pretty ignorant to laws. I keep by my morals instead.

Never gonna happen, theres still too much right wing propaganda and paranoia in the US to legalize or even decriminalize weed. Foxnews would have a field day if a black president legalized weed.

Screwz:
Didn't the exact opposite just happen? I made a point, then someone else misinterpreted what I said and called me on it.

At least he misinterpreted something I said, rather than inventing it from scratch though.

(Although I gotta say, it's still better than being accused of "reading" "Proving my point" "Linking to wikipedia" "Using logic" and "Using facts", all said with the same vitriol and disdain you'd expect would be more warranted with accusations like "Beating starving African children with other live starving African children").

I think its less about freedom, and more about taking a bite of that 350 Billion dollar black market while at the same time saving billions by not spending it on a failing "war on drugs" also while easing the strain on the prison/judicial system by not flooding it with non-violent, working, tax paying criminals that the war on drugs has created. (run on ftw)

"Everyone is doing it therefore lets legalize it"
like that argument is going to change 100 years of illegality...

ignore baal... he always misses whatever point your trying to make, and tries to beat you up on some minor thing you've said. it's his thing.

on a seperate note, chalk another one up, and this time, a non-smoker..... very nice... it feels like we're closer now than anytime in my life to finally not wasting taxpayer money on this dumb poo.
