I have never smoked pot, and I will never smoke pot.

However, I believe that it is no worse than alcohol, and should be legalized. I would rather have American farmers grow it and make money than have drug lords make the money.

Plus, put a big federal tax on it (just like cigarattes and alcohol) and wipe out the federal deficit!

Pot would bring a new dynamic to the whole party. It probably should be legal, but then there would be that little cancer problem since it is the same as tobacco in that respect. I must admit though society would be a lot more mellow-and way freekin stupid.

Isn't there a chemical in pot that stay's in the brain long after smoking that slows down the synaptic process. I was thinking it was months. That's how you could point out pot heads, they were always a little off. Burnout, that's the term I was looking for.

Alcohol can do bad things if used in excess. But it seems the usage of pot required to be a burnout is less than the usage of alcohol to cause, liver problems etc.

I am not for legalization. I am not a user (willing to take a drug test 24/7)
With that being said:
Would you rather have your 16 year old driving drunk or stoned?
Less than 3 times legal limit of alcohol you're dead. Pot, you can't smoke enough to kill you. Estimate 1000 x
Only drug you build a reverse tolerance too. The more you smoke the less it takes to get you stoned. Ever see a stoney get buzzed just getting ready to light up? It happens stored THC gets activated just thinking about it. Pavlovian
Just finding out birth defect links.
No reason for a second way to ruin families like alcohol does.
