It should be legal, but legalization is generally worse for people who smoke, as it's often lower quality and always higher priced. Also: the idiotic mj culture you see in CO right now. Smoke it, don't worship it.

Lightweights.

Legalization has a snowballs chance in hell of every passing in a deep south state. Northeastern progressive states will pass it way before any state in the land of one party republican rule.

I guess...

Hawaii
California
Nevada
New Mexico
Minnesota
Maryland
Delaware
New Jersey
New York
Connecticut
Rhode Island
Massachusetts
Vermont
New Hampshire
Maine

Don't count PA out yet. If NJ and Maryland and NY state pass it, there will be immense pressure within and without PA to pass it. We usually follow a little behind those states. Too many Alabama types live in the T zone of our state.

The southern states will be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century well behind everyone else.

I agree. I despise the fact that my govt spends way beyond what every other single country on earth does for defense and meddling in other countries affairs.

I want that money cut, and spent on debt reduction and nothing else. Shame though that lobbyists will never let that happen.

You don't think the $50,000,000,000 per year funding of "the drug war" isn't an important financial issue to tackle? Ohhhh kaaaaay....

You could easily cut that down by over $100 billion a political term (factor in prisons, etc.) and you guys are more worried about comparative nickle and dime crap? It's funny how many "fiscal conservatives" irrationally turn into morality legislators on financial issues regarding how other citizens prefer to live their lives.

What are you trying to say?

What is legalizing Marijuana going to do about the Drug War? they can still make money smuggling in cocaine, heroin and meth.

Yeah and if we are going to play the worlds police we have to at least keep a neutral position on issues abroad... we should quit supplying countries with weapons and aid and instead just sit on the sidelines, keep an eye on these issues and make sure they don't get out of hand.

I think after we get over the gay marriage and legalize marijuana issues i can see foreign affairs being the next hot topic.

All the more reason I believe that the legalization, taxation, and regulation of ALL drugs, not just Marijuana, would be beneficial... as sinister as that sounds. The "war on drugs" is a giant farce, and unwinnable any way you strategize it. The harder we crack down on drugs, the more violent the "war" becomes, and the supply continues to flow in.

I seriously doubt I'll get repped for this post (like I care), but it's just the way I see it after 50 years of living in this country and continually watching this ridiculous "war" fail, time and time again... no matter who is in office or how many new laws go into effect.
