Cannabis.

I know we've had this talk before. However, I hate long and rambley walls of text. So, keep it short, sweet and to the point.(no longer than three or four lines).

-Images are allowed but only one and it takes place of your opinion.

-If you agree with someone simply post "I agree." and be done with it.

-If you don't agree with someone then accept the fact that some people have different opinions then you.(you may post a short question or response)

WARNING: I reserve the right to delete posts that go over the limit provided (3-4 lines)YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED :)

Let the debate begin!

    Legalize it, but tax it, governments can make money of every shop selling cannabis, it is used for medical research and can help with pain relief, only thing that is stopping legalization is fear mongering

    I agree.

    I agree however it needs to go through a process so the system is not abused I just wish government officials were less strict.
    - gemie89 December 25, 2011, 12:10 am
    Yeah that's a very good point. The system of controlling import and export would need to be standardized with blind officials in charge so no bias occurs.

    Have medical issues. Can't take pills. Need pot. I agree with recreational use as well but I think I'm mostly in for the medical reasons.

    I agree medical first. I use it for self diagnosed depression and anxiety.

    Pot heads are fucking annoying where I live. I think legalization would just lower America's average IQ even more.

    I know a lot of people that smoke and are going to college (myself included). I feel drinking is a bigger problem then smoking in children. Most smokers are GGG's I'm sorry you've had a bad experience with them. :(

    I am not here to agree or disagree with what you say. I only ask where in the Constitution does it give the government the right to control our lives in such a way? State law is another debate but in what way shape or form does the federal government have the right to intrude in my life like that?

    I'm going to refer to my Mark Twain quote above when I say I agree.

    All I have to say on the matter is:

    I may smoke a lot of pot, but at least I don't smoke a lot of pot

    I personally can make an eighth last a month. My friends smoke more then I could dream. (too much of a drain on my bank account)

    How many stoned driver compared to drunk driver car accidents are there?
    In this case you would think to make alcohol illegal. I say legalize it

    Good point. Honestly whenever anyone i know is high and id driving they actually drive more cautious than they normally would.
    - SaysTheMan December 25, 2011, 8:59 pm
    I honestly think that any type of influenced driving (drunk, high, or lack of sleep) should be abolished. I don't mind people having fun but when controlling a vehicle mere feet from that family of four in the minivan, that's where I draw the line.(my opinion may be a little biased because I have been directly affected by drunk driving)

    legalize it and tax it as tobacco, let people grow it with the proper forms, then let the benefits unfold.

    Not to mention the change of focus to bigger drug problems or lessening the tax payers commitment towards the so called 'drug war'.

    Legalizing it would just turn it over to companies like big tobacco who would find a way to mess it up like they did with tobacco. They would add a bunch of crap that would make it addictive and destructive just so they can get more bang for their buck. I would love to be able to enjoy marijuana again (military doesn't condone) but when the government puts their hands in something, it just turns it sour.

    Mary J is more like wine and beer than tobacco. By that I mean there are large wine and beer companies, but there are also lots of small local companies. The same would/will hold true for MJ. Hippies love buying local.
    - johnecash December 27, 2011, 1:01 pm
    true... didn't think about it like that. I just hate seeing a good thing ruined by "THE MAN"
    - adduco December 27, 2011, 1:06 pm
    to be fair, who do you trust more. Big business or big government? I am a big fan of government regulation when it comes to some things, lie food. just read slaughter house 5 to know what i am talking about

    With Marijuana being a plant and already being home grown by thousands I don't think big industry would have much of an influence on it. The government might have more an influence.

    get your drinking age (at least for beer) to 18 and cannabis for 21. I read often that the brain isn't effected anymore when you are 25.

    I'd like to have a lowered drinking age but honestly I can see bigger problems arising from it. However if more parents introduced their kids to alcohol and made it a common thing binge drinking might not be a big problem? Honestly tobacco products do more damage (short and long term) then any of these drugs.
    - gemie89 January 3, 2012, 6:06 pm
    the drinking limit in many countries is 18, including my national UK, and in others even 16. And in the US, it's 21 - okay, you might want to see lower drinking ages there but really, as I see it the US is too paranoid about such things. We europeans get on fine with our lower drinking ages, there really aren't any massive problems with it
    - Bekenel January 3, 2012, 6:36 pm
    well you can legally drink with 14 if your parents are with you. With 16 you are allowed to drink beer and wine and with 18 you can drink liquor.
    Most people can handle alcohol better. Some are just stupid, usually when they are drinking illegally they end up in a hospital or when they are 18 they think they have to try out everything at once.
    In america I was drinking with some guys on my 18th birthday we had about 24 beers with 4 guys I had 9 beer and didnt really feel drunk so the others didnt drink that much but they were wasted as shit.
    Because I can drink more it is harder for me to end up in a hospital usually I have to throw up before I get really really drunk.
    - Vans January 3, 2012, 7:33 pm
    I agree with you us Americans are all to frequent "go big or go home". Unfortunately that sends some kids go home in body bags. I was more worried about younger kids then the ones now drinking under age. However, the younger kids are more watched by parents making sure they are safe.
    - gemie89 January 4, 2012, 12:28 am
    what's i'm saying is, it's all down to the individual. some people are good at it, some people aren't - there's no use just saying 'everybody who drinks below a certain age can't handle it and will be a wreck because of it' because that's not true for everybody - take me - i'm 16, i enjoy drinking and getting drunk - i got quite badly, and technically illegally drunk at two parties over christmas this last year. I could handle it, and i take a few days out of drinking anything after such happens - i'm also an A-grade student at school. See, everything is relative to the individual and not just down to age. So i agree with you to a point.

    I think it should be legalized, why?
    Because, I have done research (For a school project... lets go with that...) and found that being High has no negative effects on your brain. (Aside from the hullucinations) Where as alcohol damages your brain quickly, almost every time you drink.

    Damn man, hallucinations?! That's some dank shit! haha! In all seriousness the cons to Cannabis are minuscule to the benefits. You don't see doctors even thinking about prescribing alcohol to anyone do you?

    Health risks (or lack thereof) aside, Drugs in general cost tax payer money to keep illegal. Gov'ts can either dump money and resources into law enforcement against drug use, or they can simply tax and regulate the substance to create revenue rather than spend it.

    Even if you don't smoke pot, or want it anywhere near your house, you should acknowledge that other people smoking it has no real effect on you, so why should you help pay to keep it illegal?
