    yea...legalizing weed would probably be the greatest thing to ever happen to the united states

    i say;
    1. freeing the slaves
    2. giving women the right to vote
    3. then pot,
    but pot is in the top 3

    25% of drug users are unemployed. With a national average of 10%, that means you are 2.5x more likely to be unemployed if you do drugs.

    For a chart that has obvious biases toward drug use, it is pretty humorous to see them admitting to the stereotype of lazy pot heads.

    You know caffeine, sugar, alcohol and nicotine are all drugs that damn near every single person uses when they are employed, drug use doesn't make you unemployed drug addiction is.

    which is why you should legalize weed. the sheer cost of prosecuting/jailing/feeding all of those inmates is ridiculous

    and taxing the substance would bring in a pretty penny, the only problem I have is if we do so more people will be driving under the influence or doing weed out in public.

    My fall back argument is generally that alchohol is a just as/ or even more dangerous substance than weed, and it's perfectly legal. so why is weed illegal?

    Second hand high?

    Alcohol kills thousands of people annually. Weed kills 0 people annually. There is no reason why it shouldn't be legal.

    Well as people do not die from an overdose of weed I am sure quite a few people die from actions while high or other peoples actions while high.

    you may be right, but how does that differ from being drunk?

    It doesn't much. I just hate when people say that weed never kills anyone.
    - Jofus1992 September 28, 2010, 11:41 am

    I'm starting to hate these infographs, especially when they tend to be a load of inaccurate rubbish. They're also generally vague. Like the '10.2 million people drove a car while under the influence of drugs'. Over what time span is this? A year? The history of America?
