Default Agree or disagree? I would like your thoughts

i was watching Drugs, Inc. On NGC and they just said that the war on drugs costs the U.S. economy billions of dollars a year... If they were to make one certain change and just make marijuana legal we could cutt half the debt we are in, we could save trees n use hemp in stead of using paper for cigs, use hemp paper n also have a lot more easy going people.

side note: It also helps people with eating disorders (anorexia) some types cancer and sometimes mental health.

so what do you think?

I think it should be legalized and taxed just like cigarettes. It's a plant. It isn't like those drugs being made out of Drano, fertilizer, or stuff that will eat the flesh right off your face. Instead of throwing our kids in prison for a thousand years just make it legal like it is in some states for medicinal purposes.

i agree that it should be legal. the uses of it can be tremendous- it'll benefit the state/government the most, IMO. i do think there should be 'rules' placed on it-- like you cant buy X amount within a certain week (like they do with some OTC meds), you cant drive/handle a vehicle (in some states, that includes a horse or a bike! lol), etc-- all of which is somewhat the same with drinking alcohol.

aside from people smoking it, it can be used for other products as well, making those costs cut down, etc.

Default Legalize it

They should totally legalize Weed. It's almost legal in california. If they were smart they would tax it even more.

Agree. Make it legal. This country is taking advantage of folks that choose to smoke a plant??? Haven't we learned anything from prohibition? Geesh. My wife has a severe case of fibro, and would like to try MJ to see if she could get relief, but is to afraid of the legal consequences. So she has to have huge levels of pain meds just to function, and ruin her liver from all the tylenol.....

I am in favor of legalizing marijuana. There are more medicinal purposes for marijuana than tobacco, yet tobacco is legal, while marijuana is illegal. Something here doesn't make sense...

Legalize it. I could rant for hours about the harm caused to individuals, families, and communities because of the arrests and attempted enforcement, but I can't think of any reason to keep it illegal.

No it's bad enough anyone can walk in a clinic in CA and buy, mostly kids and we all know it leads to harder drugs, I'm all for selling it to cancer patients and terminal illness, but draw the line there.
