Legalizing Cannibus/contemplating, whether or not to legalizing it....is all a HUGE waste of everyone's money.......

Plain & Simple....legalize it and concentrate on substance's that truely cause problems......ie; CRACK!!!!!!

The police in our town/city, won't do anything about the crack house's....I asked one of the officer's (whom I know on a friendly basis), why they aren't cracking down on the crack heads.....the officer said, "It's job security for me!!!"
They know who the crack-heads are and what they are doing.....but, I think they are too afraid or something......beside's that, from what I understand, 1/2 of the force are coccaine lover's themselve's and I think it's, that they don't want to loose their drug connections.

Anyways, "POT"........I've never heard of ANY crime's that had taken place where "POT" was involved!!!

Holy Chit "NOW THAT"S A DOOBIE!"....guys it's simple. They will never legalize it because they couldn't control the production of it to tax it. Every AA personality capitalist would have a hydroponic set-up cranking out the best herb they could and selling it cheaper than the next. So what's the GOV gonna do... grow stronger chit to compete? (Besides, look at all those criminal justice types that would be out of a job). Why the hell ya think they repealed probition? They couldn't stop it but they knew (and rightfully so...I'd rather get tanked on Crown Royal than old green teeth down the streets "shine"...hence they could control the manufacturing process, reulate it and viola...TAX BASE which = OK!

Personally haven't smoked the chit in twenty years but to spend BILLIONS and incarcerate thousands in an effort of futility smacks straight up of more government stupidity and waste. Face it kids it's a multi-billion dollar a year BUSINESS and NO ONE on EITHER side wants it legal. (Besides that, if your all honked about THC etc, etc look at what they put in the food you eat). The biggest crime is that a 18 year old kid busted for smoke is pretty much screwed in the grown up world of employment. Drug arrest on the ole' resume...don't think so, sorry kid try the carwash. Thankfully I grew up in a more enlightened time.

SO....back on them BOATS!

Legalize it, i dont care....its not gonna change much in this world about it. Most companys will still have their no drug policy so whats making this legal gonna do other then let the burger flippers have some fun? I mean alcohol is "legal" yet you cant come to work drunk or drink on the job...If your gonna be stoned your gonna loose your job.....i see it realy screwing up alot of people more then they are now. The ones who never have tried it will do so now out of curiosity, and the ones who have used it will do more. Unemployment may go up a tad due to everyone being couch potato's but the junk food companys will be banking!
I have never tried it nor will i ever try it, legal or not. But the last thing i need is ti be getting a contact high in the bars on top of it all! its bad enough i smell like a chimney after a night out.

Default Legalize it!

Let's face it: You either smoke or you don't(won't)
That being said, simply legalizing it, won't make hordes of people pick up the habbit. Those who already do it, will continue and those who don't shouldn't care.

Health effects: No worse than alcohol...Different, but no better or worse.

Make and uphold similar driving laws as Drinking and driving.

Use it to generate revenue, meanwhile taking it away from shady dealers.

The criminal system is already too overburdoned as it is: Dope smokers don't need to be taking up jail space or wasting prosecution dollars!


It could very well be America's biggest Cash Crop...

Remember when they used to say "pot leads to stronger drugs" or "pot leads to heroin addiction"?
Somehow I couldn't see making the jump from pot to heroin but it could happen, so could a lot of things. It's always up to the individual to move up the drug ladder. I have been offered all kinds of junk but never had anything stronger than weed. Never wanted to.
I have this reputation of never saying no, only when I've had enough.

That pic of the giant boobie reminds me of the joke about a guy that took a kilo brick, rolled it up in the Sunday Times. Looked like a roll of tarpaper with an ash.

Ever see the movie "Romancing The Stone"?
The fire in the downed drug plane? Where Michael Douglas says, as he tosses another kilo on the fire, "now that's what I call a campfire!" then proceeds to stick his face in the smoke.
