Don't you love the way these guys work on the sneak? I would up you but since I did on a previous post it won't let me for a while. I will keep you in mind.

As a Washington State alumnus, I'm actually surprised out how little pot there was in that town. For being a college town, you'd expect a lot more than I'd seen there. This coming from a former pothead. I'd say Pullman is by far a drinking town more than a pot town. I'm sure there's a lot more potheads at UW, since they have all the hippies and granolas livin' up in the Seattle area...

Yeah, Pullman is probably more of a drinking town. Although I thought there were quite a few of the herbalists over on the Moscow side.

Millions have died from legal drugs tobacco and alcohol. I'd imagine no one's ever died directly from smoking pot.

I would have to agree whole heartedly on that! Actually, I want to say that U of I was ranked the most laid-back campus in the US....maybe there's a connection there...

Do you not think that if marijuana was legalized then the effects and proberlems that are related with marijuana would increase, just as has happened with alcohol.

legalize it,tax it.Yes in this case Im actually for taxes.Use the tax money for those who would become addicted for recovery and for awareness.No I don't think legalization would increase addiction,the fact is those who do it now while illegal would generally be the ones who would do it legally.

Crime rates will diminish,murder and gun crime will diminish also.Tax money spent on the prison system will have more funds due to less prisoners,which could be allocated to peace officers saleries and equipment.

Use the same laws regarding alchohol like driving intoxicated,also a open market will promoted standards as far as quality.

Medical marijuana is a no brainer to me,if someone is suffering and it will help them why not?....can't understand rejection to this.

There are pain killers legal now,that doctors perscribe that some people become addicted to,why ban some and not the other?

Some see it as immoral to use substances,including alcohol but you can't legislate morality.Use persuasion for your arguement instead.

At the very least marijuana should be legalized.People don't rob and steal to get marijuana.Fact is,alchohol tends to make some people violent as compared.Should people do it?no...but like I said,it is illegal right now and millions are using it anyway.

On this issue,there are both Democrats and Republicans for and against legalization,with the Libertarian party has it listed as one of the things "to do".

cigarettes are legal yet public awareness had seen less people smoking.If cigarettes were outlawed those that smoke would still smoke.It is a persons decision that makes the difference,not whether its legal or not.

If by "effects and proberlems [sic] that are related with marijuana," you are talking about the munchies and the giggles, then yes, they will increase due to the drug's increased use.

But, the vast majority of the "problems" involving marijuana are created by society and the government, and are products of the drug's prohibition, not of the drug's use. Marijuana would be far less dangerous if it were legal.
