    there are more important issues, so many in fact I don’t get around to this one…

  4. Jungle Fever says:

    Legal, I still don’t see why it’s still illegal.
    People can die from alcohol poisoning and drug overdose, but really, has anyone ever died from smoking weed? C’mon now.

  5. ♥|vanessa. (babyvee) says:

    The old me would have said illegal, but I now say heck with it.

  6. ▐▀▀▀▀▀▌ ▌Panda▐ ▐▄▄▄▄▄▌ says:

    Legal over the age of 17. It is WAY less harmful then drinking and cigarettes.

  7. Name Here® doesn't care says:

    I think marijuana for medicinal purposes is ok, but recreational use should be illegal

  8. jpeace says:

    it is fair it is your own damn falt and it should be illegal idiot!

  9. Connor says:

    It should be legal. No one has ever died from it, and apparently we can be trusted to choose to smoke cigarettes or not but as American adults we can’t be trusted with marijuana.

    It should be legal
    the government can make SO MUCH money off of it!!
    We could like pay off our 13 Trillion dollar debt,
    and with it controlled by the government, it would be safer and less likely to be laced with something
    andddddd a ton of people could get liscenses to sell it in their shops or whatever and to grow it,
    man seriously the government could nickle and dime this thing like crazy!

    and it did never kill anyone, and everyone smokes it anyways ha.
    Sorry about your probation ha.

    LEGAL.

    It is not a government’s place to monitor, and tell us what we ARE and ARE NOT allowed to put into our own bodies. It is the same issue with firearms, other “dangerous weapons”, some cars, etc. People out there have/use them in bad ways anyway, so they are only limiting good, law-abiding, responsible citizens. The choice should be with the individual, and no one else.

  12. ★SƬЯΛПGΣЯ★ says:

    legal
    but i think it should be 18+ just my opinion.

  13. Matthias the Bloody says:

    Marijuana should never have been made illegal in the first place. i don’t see how something could be made illegal that no one in history has ever died from or gotten sick from.

  14. adrian says:

    It got to your brain.
    Use the spell checker.
    That’s why it should NOT be legalized.

  15. Kim Lee SOUTH KOREA says:

    illegal

    too expensive: we’re in enough debt
    even if you don’t smoke, you’re health suffers
    this planet suffers, hence the reason why some people freak out w/ 2012. alls we gotta do is recycle & ppl stop smoking. then less chemicals would produce, the world wouldn’t have to self destruct. enough smoke comes out of cars and factories, why it gotta come out are mouth

  16. Girl at the Rock Show says:

    16+? Get over yourself. I think it should be legal, with regulations and restrictions, but 16+ is stupid. 18+ sure, but only if the drinking age is 18 as well, so until it is 21+ for weed too.

    And stop complaining about your probation. Whether or not you think weed should be legal, it’s not, you broke the law and got caught so deal with it. If you are old enough to smoke weed, you’re old enough to deal with the things that happen because of it.

    .Legal, Research has now shown that marijuana is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known. No one has ever died from an overdose, and it has a wide variety of therapeutic applications, including: AIDS. Marijuana can reduce the nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite caused by the ailment itself and by various AIDS medications. Glaucoma. Marijuana can reduce intraocular pressure, alleviating the pain and slowing-and sometimes stopping-damage to the eyes. (Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. It damages vision by increasing eye pressure over time.) Cancer. Marijuana can stimulate the appetite and alleviate nausea and vomiting, which are common side effects of chemotherapy treatment. Multiple Sclerosis. Marijuana can limit the muscle pain and spasticity caused by the disease, as well as relieving tremor and unsteadiness of gait. (Multiple sclerosis is the leading cause of neurological disability among young and middle-aged adults in the United States.) Epilepsy. Marijuana can prevent epileptic seizures in some patients. Chronic Pain. Marijuana can alleviate the chronic, often debilitating pain caused by myriad disorders and injuries. Each of these applications has been deemed legitimate by at least one court, legislature and/or government agency in the United States. Many patients also report that marijuana is useful for treating arthritis, migraine, menstrual cramps, alcohol and opiate addiction, and depression and other debilitating mood disorders.

    The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world. A very large portion of people who are incarcerated are imprisoned for drug-related crimes. In 1994, it was reported that the “War on Drugs” results in the incarceration of one million Americans each year. Of the related drug arrests, about 225,000 are for possession of cannabis, the fourth most common cause of arrest in the United States. In 2008, 1.5 million Americans were arrested for drug offenses. 500,000 were imprisoned. Marijuana constitutes almost half of all drug arrests, and between 1990–2002, out of the overall drug arrests, 82% of the increase was for marijuana. In the year 2000, the United States drug-control budget reached 18.4 billion dollars, nearly half of which was spent financing law enforcement. A 2008 study by Harvard economist Jeffrey A. Miron has estimated that legalizing drugs would inject $ 76.8 billion a year into the U.S. economy $ 44.1 billion from law enforcement savings, and at least $ 32.7 billion in tax revenue ($ 6.7 billion from marijuana, remainder from other drugs). Recent surveys help to confirm the consensus among economists to reform drug policy in the direction of decriminalization and legalization

    For thousands of years marijuana has been used to treat a wide variety of ailments. Until 1937, marijuana (Cannabis sativa L.) was legal in the United States for all purposes and at least 27 medicines containing marijuana were legally available. Many were made by well-known pharmaceutical firms that still exist today, such as Squibb (now Bristol-Myers Squibb) and Eli Lilly. Prior to 1937, The Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 federally prohibited marijuana. Dr. William C. Woodward of the American Medical Association opposed the Act, testifying that prohibition would ultimately prevent the medicinal uses of marijuana. In 1970, the federal government passed The Controlled Substances Act, which placed all illicit, and prescription drugs into five “schedules” (categories). Marijuana was placed in Schedule I, defining it as having a high potential for abuse, no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision. This definition simply does not apply to marijuana. Of course, at the time of the Controlled Substances Act, marijuana had been prohibited for more than three decades. Its medicinal uses forgotten, marijuana was considered a dangerous and addictive narcotic.

    It is too addictive to be used as a medicine – The fact that this statement is made at all is laughable when you consider the amount of people addicted to FDA approved pain medications such as Oxycodone and Vicodin, but lets see what the experts say. According to the NAS report: “Some controlled substances that are approved medications produce dependence after long-term use; this, however, is a normal part of patient management and does not generally present undue risk to the patient.” “A distinctive marijuana and THC withdrawal syndrome has been identified, but it is mild and subtle compared with the profound physical syndrome of alcohol or heroin withdrawal.” “In summary, although few marijuana users develop dependence, some do. But they appear to be less likely to do so than users of other drugs (including alcohol and nicotine), and marijuana dependence appears to be less severe than dependence on other drugs.”
    On August 21, 2009, Mexico decriminalized “personal use” possession of up to 5 grams of marijuana
    * A July 13, 2007, decision in Ontario Provincial court has ruled that criminal possession laws for cannabis are unconstitutional (R. v. Long).

    ILLEGAL.
    They’ll tax the shit out of it as soon as it becomes legal.
    From a realistic standpoint though, it shouldn’t have ever been made illegal in the first place.
    It’s a PLANT that reduces the amount of “cancer cells” preventing cancer and it’s not any worse than alcohol or smoking cigarettes.
    Also, if California had made it legal, they’d be out of debt right now.

  19. Icantsing Well says:

    ok…. most murders usually happen when someone is one drugs
    if they legalize it they better tax the shit out of it!

  20. Desert Caretaker says:

    Leagalize, but govermently controled.

    1) relieve our jail system of unneccasary arrest
    2) tax relief
    3) Allow officers to focus on hiates crimes
    4) clean up the streets (sidewalk sellers)
    5) make it more affordable
    6) stop mexico from profiting tax free
    7) control the level of THC
    8)
    9)
    10)
    ……………………………

  21. Jessica84 says:

    Legal because more people smoke it or did smoke it than people who do not use it or never has. It is a dumb law that a lot of people are forced to brake.

  22. *be my lover* says:

    Many people assume that marijuana was made illegal through some kind of process involving scientific, medical, and government hearings; that it was to protect the citizens from what was determined to be a dangerous drug. The actual story shows a much different picture. Those who voted on the legal fate of this plant never had the facts, but were dependent on information supplied by those who had a specific agenda to deceive lawmakers. Now, I believe it should remain illegal for the ff. reasons:
    1.) It is perceived as addictive.
    Under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug on the basis that is has “a high potential for abuse.”
    2.) It has “no accepted medical use.”
    Marijuana seems to yield considerable medical benefits for many Americans with ailments ranging from glaucoma to cancer, but these benefits have not been accepted well enough, on a national level. Medical use of marijuana remains a serious national controversy.
    and finally.. It is associated with unfashionable lifestyles.
    Marijuana is often thought of as a drug for hippies and losers. Since it’s hard to feel enthusiastic about the prospects of enabling people to become hippies and losers, imposing criminal sanctions for marijuana possession functions as a form of communal “tough love.”

  23. You will ☠ says:

    Out of all drugs, why should marijuana be illegal? They should make the OTHER drugs illegal, but not marijuana. They should replace the normal bad smoking with marijuana.
