    What's wrong with mellowing out?

    Why should I be limited to booze? When will the world wake up to alternate realities?

    It's less harmful to your lungs than cigarettes, and less addictive than alcohol. The people who like it are going to smoke it wether it's legal or not. Why are we still wasting so much money in the legal system and law enforcment on pot, why not put that money and resources to...

    Of course it should be legal!

    It has many medicinal uses and for many (me included) it's recreational use is way safer than alcohol.

    Making it illegal in the first place was the

    biggest load of BS! The reason why they got so much support for making it illegal was by saying "it's dangerous" and pumping a chimp (if I am correct with breed) with 5 times the amount a human is even capable of smoking in about an hours time, per second and killing it. They...

    I absolutely think it should be legalized,

    100%. It's no worse than alcohol and that is legal. Government might as well make some money off it, people are smoking it anyway.

    I really try to keep this argument simple.

    We can go into all the details regarding marijuana's positive and negative effects, but I say that none of that matters when it comes to law. According to my philosophy, a crime is not committed until the life, liberty, or property of another individual is infringed upon...

    But I Don't Smoke.

    It's just something that I feel is eating up resources without reason. I like the idea of taxing it a bit - cover the medical fee end if it raises risk and fund the police to make sure people aren't driving under the influence. That sort of thing. (I'm Canadian in case you were...

    From A Non-stoner

    I've always been pretty supportive of decriminalization. I never viewed it as anything more than a beer or a cigarette, until I was 18, and my aunt Ruth died in a car accident, and my cousin Mia began smoking weed. She went from depressed and withdrawn to the bright girl she was...

    Or at least decriminalized.

    There is too much fuckery going on in the world (war, REAL drugs, rape, murder etc.) For police to stop what their doing and arrest someone for smoking (or selling) a plant. Weed is not a drug, in fact it is a herb with special healing powers and it holds more benefits than side...

    The scariest thing about marijuana is what a

    neophyte culture America is. Weed alone is not dangerous, but access to weed without discipline, priorities, and goals leads to a wasteful life.

    I believe it should be legalized.

    If cigarettes and alcohol can kill you and they're legal then a plant that makes you happy and has never killed anyone should also be legal. Ignorant people are the ones against it, and in my opinion they should just stay away from things like this.

    It's coming in strong in the US.

    If Colorado can get it legalised then sure others will follow. Especially when the states realise how much money can be made from it. Let's hope the UK follows suit. It's 4:20 somewhere ;-)

    that marijuana is not federally legal. Yes people will abuse it, but I am tired of hearing that excuse. I am tired of hearing it because there are people who will use it responsibly like alcohol and medication now.
