Are you serious? Do you not realize that one of the reasons Nixon waged "an all out war" on the plant was to curb Anti-Vietnam war protesters? "Controlling the masses" is effective enough with booze and pills. Have you ever smoked MJ? I'm willing to bet no.

When I read opinions like yours I can't help but think Americans deserve every bit of the Government they have.

Exactly, weed is a threat to the military industrial complex!

Yep-It is a threat to all industrial complexes and to our corrupt system!

As Bob Marley once said, "it reveals you to yourself". I'd doubt you'll find many people saying that about booze or pills.

You said the use of LEGAL drugs is a huge proble (an epidemic) in US and your solution is to legalize more drugs. That would only result in a bigger problem.

Here's a nice new drug to have legal --- so that the traffickers can easily deliver it into ever high school and middle school.

It will be wonderful for the greedy cartels -- and obviously they're already producing it. A couple cases in Arizona already also. Imagine how great things will be when it's sold alongside beer and wine at every grocery store.

Teen Injects Krokodil Into Her Genitals: 17-Year-Old Has 'Rotted' Vagina After 2 Months Of Injections

"The young woman who used this drug had an infection that had rotted her genitals,” José Sotero Ruiz Hernández from Mexico's National Institute of Migration told El Periodico Correo. “It wasn't sexually transmitted. She said she'd been using krokodil for the last two months."

Well --- whatever happens happens. Obama seems to care so little about Americans that these drugs probably will soon be legalized and they'll be sold in every convenience store. Krokodil would be nice and cheap and it destroys the users completely in no time.

We could make sure it's readily available and do some Darwinism quickly.

Except some of the most influential people in the world indulged in it throughout the course of time. Not all users of cannabis fit the "lazy stoner" stereotype. Nor do all cannabis users sit on the couch all day smoking a bowl watching tv (quite frankly I can't stand watching much tv anymore, as there is nothing but garbage on anyway). Some of us (I'd say most of us) do in fact work pretty damn hard for a living. Me personally, if and when I partake, it's usually when work is over, I'm home, and any other obligations have been fulfilled. Which of course could be errands, such as shopping, or our kid's sporting events.

I've heard about that stuff. I don't know who in their right mind would think to mess with it. Unfortunately, people do dumb s***, and well.... you can't fix stupid!

I guess after it's legalized and as plentiful on the store shelves as beer, we can get rid of a lot of moronic people. Maybe that will be the best thing in the end. It's very affordable and gets them a quick high.

The Indian reservations are already facing a big loss of their youth with alcohol an meth, when this stuff hits, their future will be grim.
