    Alaska, Oregon, and Washington DC have

    now legalized recreational use of Marijuana, is anyone else psyched about this too? Any who still oppose it and think it will ruin this country? Anyone from the 4 States/District where its legalized have any opinions to share about it? I'd love to hear some arguments for or...

    And this is with me never trying it.

    I honestly don't think it's so dangerous, besides for the lung cancer part. I think alcohol is much more destructive.

    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...

    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 ;-)

    Does Weed Make You Horny?

    I don't know if you've ever seen the 1950-60s movie called "Reefer Fever", but it's hilarious. The theme behind it is all of the terrible things that people will do if they smoke grass... like turning into murderers, rapists, robbers, sex addicts, and generally horrible people...

    I think we should treat marijuana like we do

    Florida sucks!! An amendment was rejected

    yesterday for medicinal marijuana. Lo to no THC, high cannabinol, distributed by doctors to sick people who need it. It needed 60% to pass, we were short less than 3%. I demand a recount. Medical usage is now legal in something like 23 states. I hate Florida.

    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...

    I think that most people are against Marijuana

    because they've been given false information. They've not been told about the positive effects it has on the sick, and they don't know all that it can do for society. I know people who still think it can kill you! Has no one done any research??

    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...
