Exactly.
But wait... "Weedheads" kill people to get their "fix."

Because someone smoking marijuana is not harming other people. Look how well prohibition worked for us in the 20's regarding alcohol use. It was considered a massive failure just like how the current War on Drugs is today.

I used to get angry with people who have this type of logic; however, I'm beginning to see that slowly people like this are becoming the minority

And it's a great thing isn't it? Just in the past two years alone, people views on this have really changed. The economic crisis has helped, as well as the Internet. Do they still do the "DARE" thing in schools? I wish I knew all this stuff when we had those Drug-Free Weeks during elementary. I probably would have been escorted out.

I get angry at the people who break the law (smoking marijuana), while dozens of DEA and or other LEOs, and thousands in Mexico and elsewhere get killed trying to enforce the laws. Do "weedheads" think of the people killed in drug/marijuana transactions while they smoke it? I'm sure they don't, or perhaps their mind is too warped to consider that fact. No guilt there, huh? Instead, they say "change the law."

Exactly. It's a recreational drug. You don't need it to survive. Yet this particular industry is proven to be directly linked to senseless murders and homicides. Here's a one cheap way to end the drug war right now that won't cost millions in rehab centers or millions to set up government dispenseries - just stop using drugs. When your right to toke up is more important than the lives of innocent people (ok some not so innocent), then I just don't know what to say.

There are much, much more important laws that need that need changing than this.

Its the governments fault for making it illegal, sure as hell ain't mine. People get killed over diamonds, but you don't see that on the news anymore...

Stop?
That's like telling people to "just stop" getting on facebook.

Wow. This isn't even worth an intelligent response to. The closed-mindedness in these two posts I quoted is just unreal. Wow. You guys need to really educate yourselves on prohibition. We really have a problem in the country, with people like the two I quoted, thinking that using drugs like marijuana is a criminal issue, when it is really a health issue. I bet these two guys thing taking Aspirin is just fine. Or getting drunk is fine, too, since it is legal (yet alcohol has killed more people 10 days into this month of March, than marijuana has in thousands of years).
