I'd Really Like to Know.

Is there one single rational argument for incarcerating and criminalizing Marijaunna users?  I'd like to hear it.

Has the Drug Was (a war conducted mostly against Americans) had any but the most Pyrrhic and transient of successes, despite the billions politicians have splurged on it?

Is there really any body left out there, besides preening politicians, who still thinks that one of the governments' primary resposiblities should be policing what plant I want to burn in my pipe?  Why? 

If it is a moral issue for some people, which I understand and respect, then why are you so keen to impose your morality on others, especially with such harsh and uncompromising penalties?

In my opinion, the "drug war" is a disaster that has generated far more violent crime than it ever has prevented.  I was heartened by the Attorney General's enlightened attitude on this issue.

If the truth were presented as news, the pot fiasco would end. In many cases, armed bank robbers spend less time in prison than do marijuana offenders. Read the book, Shoulda Robbed a Bank. Tales of high adventure in the marijuana trade. And the 5 years spent in Federal Prison.

Keeping marijuana illegal allows our military intelligence community to have something that can, if necessary, be used, like cocaine and other illegal drugs, to fund black projects without having to explain or pitch them to the House Intelligence Committee or other politicians. If drugs are legal, then it becomes impossible to make obscene fortunes from them. <br />

By the way, in my opinion, it would be much better to decriminalize marijuana than to legalize it; decriminalization merely involves taking the old laws off the books so that it becomes legal by default. Legalizing it means you have to pass a new law entirely and it implies a great deal of government regulation. It would be legally easier to decriminalize it. And I don't really trust the government to do intelligent and fair regulation of it. The only regulations should be that you'd have to be of age, 21, as for alcohol.

Amen!!!! criminalizing marihuana it's useless and ridiculous, they have no point in doing it.

Very well said! I agree wholeheartedly.
