The Marijuana Thread

Another hot button issue:

Should we legalize marijuana for sale and distribution (either by the gov't or the free market) in the United States?

Here's my opinion: I see zero negatives consequences to marijuana being legalized. In fact, it's a non-issue with me. I'm just waiting for someone high up to realize the benefits and be ballsy enough to file the paperwork. Here are a few reasons it should be legalized...

-Taxation (the gov't could heavily tax weed and help out that looming deficit we have)
-Get Rid of the Drug Dealers (this one is obvious, kind of like bootlegging alcohol...who does that anymore?)
-Less people in prison for what is essentially a victimless crime, once again saving more tax money
-It's safer than alcohol
-Cigarettes are far more lethal and they are already legal
-NO ONE HAS EVER OVERDOSED FROM MARIJUANA
-You know what you're getting if it's regulated by the gov't, so it won't be laced with something scary

All right, there's my two cents...what do you think?

.. yeah, i pretty much agree 100%...


besides... even if marijuana alone was incredibly lethal, i would still vote to legalize it.. as far as im concerned, id like to give people the CHOICE to be retarded and kill themselves off...

... more smart genes for the pool..

I never done marijauna, and never will.
A government legalizing a drug.
-Everyone would be high and wouldn't think straight.
-Teens and younger may get a hold of it. (teens already do, but for kids its just plain wrong).
-Driving while high can endanger people
-Can be a danger to oneself
-Police can ticket you if you have enough.

OxyMoron will become famous soon enough

I simply think there should be no law whatsoever on the reefer, except for the toking and driving thing; driving while impaired by any substance is extremely dangerous.

I see nothing wrong with it beyond it impairing your judgment.

... alcohol and tobacco..

-EVERYBODY doesnt look drunk with blackened lungs to me, do they?
-teens already get a hold of alcohol and tobacco...
-driving while entoxicated is the #1 cause of death in this country.. (i believe... i know its car accidents, but specifically while entoxicated MAY NOT be #1... though its incredibly high)
-alcohol and tobacco are incredibly lethal
-police ticket you if you drink or smoke in the wrong places...


......
... my point is... the government doesnt care for our safety on this level.... its quite obvious.. and TBQH, i dont EXPECT them to care.. after all, these things are only a result of our own stupidity...

.. all im asking for is some consistency...
..why legalize 2 incredibly dangerous toxic substances (which serve no purpose other than monetary enjoyment) and ban another toxic substance which is significantly less dangerous and addicting?




...... the way i see it.. we should help the innocent who are in need of the drug rather than try to prevent the stupid from killing themselves off..
......
besides..
.. overpopulations somewhat of a problem.. AT THE VERY LEAST thatd be yet another benefit from legalizing it..

EDIT:
lol.. oh, and kudos for being drug-free, mah friend.. XP... *handshake*

-Everyone would be high and wouldn't think straight.
-Alcohol does this

-Alcohol already does this

-Alcohol already does this (of course, though, you've never been high, so you don't know that when you smoke weed you have absolutely ZERO desire to drive)
-Can be a danger to oneself
-HOW? I mean, if you decide to juggle chainsaws when your high, yeah, but alcohol does the same thing, except you won't want to do anything dangerous when you're high
-Police can ticket you if you have enough.
-Yep. Same as some other legal intoxicating substance we have....what was it? Oh yeah. ALCOHOL.
above in bold red are my responses
The truth is that weed, if legalized, should be restricted pretty much the same as alcohol. There should be laws aginst driving intoxicated, there should be designated "pot bars", you shouldn't be able to do it unless you're 18 or 21, etc.
One major difference though: you can overdose on alcohol, but you can't overdose on weed.
Much safer if a kid DID decide to do it (I'm not saying it should be legal for kids, though...just far less harmful than alcohol)
