    Legalize it. Let the farmers farm it, and the government tax it.

    I know it would help me with anger issues, bipolar and PTSD. I don’t smoke it, but I think it should be for medical use only, I would smoke it if it was legal. Only when I needed it though, I would not do it to get totally zombified, just to take the edge off if I got to feeling angry etc.

    If you have any uncertainty about it, just look to see what the Bamster says about it.  His judgment is so godless that being on the opposite side will pretty much put you in the correct position.  He must have seen a poll, which doesn’t bolster confidence in my fellow Americans to make the right choice either.

    He should really stick his neck out and say that it should be covered under Obamacare.  That will immediately put an entire group rushing to sign up.

    I’ve said before… I’m torn.  The Libertarian in me really doesn’t want any Government telling me what I can do and what I can ingest as long as I’m responsible.  I also know that when the Gov’t tries to legislate morality it normally ends up working out bad for everybody.  Look no further than prohibition to see how well it works.

    On the other hand, Alcohol is legal to buy and use, and that really hasn’t been all that great either.  Our culture doesn’t seem to do well with intoxicants and self-regulation.  Maybe the real problem is that we’ve removed too many of the consequences of screwing up your life so people don’t get the feedback they need in order to self regulate?  For that reason, I think the Libertarian approach won’t work out too well.

    My big concern is that kids these days seem all to capable of getting their hands on it and using it to their detriment.

    Not really sure what Justin has to do with this except he is the latest Celeb that has gone off the rails.  People have been screwing their lives up for years with destructive habits.  Marijuana is just one means to that end…   If it isn’t marijuana, it is alcohol, or women, or men, or porn.  There are a million different ways you can chase oblivion if that is where you want to go.

    Yep, and then you “catch it” and realize it doesn’t satisfy or fill the void.  Sort of like a dog chasing a car – what happens if they’re finally able to “catch it”?  Is this really all there is?  My understanding of the effects of weed is that you just don’t care anymore.  {#emotions_dlg.eusa_think}

    Very well stated Alan. It is legal in Canada for medical use and there is a growing push to legalize it across the board (with all of the attendant regulations, etc.). Nevertheless, I tend to agree with Alan (Fats).

    OK, here’s my 2 cents. Back in the day I used to smoke a little reefer. Unlike some others who seemed to adopt drug use as their identity, it was merely relaxing and recreational for me. The usual day went like this. I’d get up in the morning, shower, shave, dress, and head in to work. After work I’d go home, shower, change clothes and head, at least in summer, for the shade in the back yard. I’d plop down in the chaise lounge with a beer, and light up a joint. I’d take 2 or 3 hits, it was really good stuff, and put the joint out. Then I’d sip my beer and read the paper or a magazine or a book, and just “decompress” from the day. I wasn’t out to get blasted, just relax. I’d get a nice little glow going. There are a lot of folks out there who do just that, and are not subversive elements looking to bring down civilization.

    I read somewhere else on the web that the Mexican drug cartels are bummed that they’re going to lose an estimated 1.5 billion in revenue because Washington and Colorado have legalized marijuana. As far as marijuana being a “gateway” drug, that is , indeed, a possibility but it is by no means an inevitability! That’s like saying milk is a gateway substance to coffee, or beer is a gateway substance to whiskey. As far as the relative effects go, I can remember telling my Mom, many moons ago, that if I had to choose between being locked in a room with a dozen people drunk on alcohol or a dozen people high on reefer, I’d take the people high on reefer every time!

    Nowadays,  I no longer partake. I don’t really remember when the transition happened because it wasn’t some big, cathartic moment. I simplylost interest. I suppose that some would call that maturity. I don’t know what I’d call it. Maybe it’s just getting old.

    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.

    Simply put, I’d choose neither.

    It’s not just about money (i.e. Mexican cartel losing $1.5 B).  Look at the mixed signals we are now going to be sending our youth yet again.  Legalizing it is just wrong!  {#emotions_dlg.mathews_not_talking}
