the only people that would freak out are the ones being effected by the tax. it's like taxing alcohol, who cares if there's a tax if you don't drink any?

just to put up some type of defense for pot smokers out there, it has been legalized in certain countries and the consequences aren't nearly as chaotic as some may think. the good news to making a drug like this legal is that when people realize they have a problem with it, it's easier to go to a clinic to get help.

but you have to look at it this way. as a teenager the more someone tells you something is bad the more curious you will get about it. it's a simple fact of life. the way i grew up my dad told me i could do whatever i want, but i had to be willing to face the consequences. the good news was that since i had the opportunity to do everything from crack to smoking weed it took away that curiousity. my dad grew up in an era where experimentation with drugs was just part of being a kid, so he knew there was no point in fighting in. the best you can do is make sure nothing the kid stays relatively safe and doesn't go out and rob a store or attempt to drive.

Well it's good to see we people here have a pretty healthy approach to life.

I think we should keep Marijuana illegal because there's nothing good about legalizing yet another poison.
I personally think the reason why alcohol and cigarettes cannot be illegalized is because they are such an integrated part of society... though I think in a few countries, anti-smoking campaigns are working out. Eventually when demands for cigarettes drop way low, it too can be illegalized. I don't see alcohol going away though.
I'm saying, just because one's "just as bad" as the other, isn't a justification into legalizing it.

Illegal all the way.

Yes there are going to be respectable people in our society that smoke up. I hate it when the "I am a good person" defence is used. Weed does way more harm than good. I watched my half brother throw his life away because of weed. In high school, he was an excellent basketball player. Most thought he could get a college scholarship for playing the game. In his 2nd year, he got involved with weed. His game was severely affected by this. He did not play his junior year and dropped out of high school is senior year. He settled for lobstering. One night, he broke into a home and stole some checks. He was arrested a few weeks later after trying to use those checks. He got 3 years probation. He pissed hot and is now in jail for the next year.

So go ahead, use the "I am a good person" defence. For every one of you, there are 5 others who are not good people for using weed.

I knew a kid who had a full golf scholarship to an ivy league school but he pissed it off when he decided to hit the pipe instead of hit the course. it is pretty tragic when that kind of stuff happens.

Lets remember something. A lot more stupid people in this world get themselves killed via alchohol than any other drug. So its the official drug of the morons throughout the world.

Marijuana is not as bad as other illegal drugs but once you legalize one then people will start fighting to legalize another. I say get rid of the drugs and send the people that want to use them to a place where it is legal.....


I would hate for my kids to see it get legalized and start to use it.....

I would feel sorry for the person that tried to give it to my youngsters....

This is not what people "think", this is what scientists know...

The effect just after you've smoked it may not be much worse than alcohol, but it stays in your body and affects your senses much much longer.. (days)

RL have you done it before?
