  1. The state of Colorado has made a profit of over $100,000,000 already, Oregon & Alaska are going to legalize next. If New York does the same we will bring in over a billion dollars a year at least. Just think of all the money for education, & tax relief for are over taxed citizens. And it will break the back of the drug cartels.

  2. Forget pot, legalize Heroin and let every teenager get a free sample. It’ll will be good for the Afghan economy to sell their bumper crop off. The schools can hand out dime bags with a hypodermic needle. It will be healthier than Ritalin! Drugged and stupid is a New Civil Right!

  3. Pot can cause temporary mental problems in about 5% of users, however, the toxicology of marijuana is less toxic than most legal drugs, even less toxic than donuts. Drug dependancy shouldn’t be fixed via the prison system.

  4. Alcohol is a very toxic substance, and its abuse is not uncommon. Shall we decide to make that illegal as well?

    Wait a minute, we tried that solution. It was a mistake.

  5. Can you imagine legalizing, Gambling, Prostitution, Drugs ? Would this perfect world we now live in come to an end?

  6. Not me. I’ve seen far too many smart people turned into mediocre people due to grass. This isn’t Reefer Madness, but pot most definitely affects lives, and not in a good way.

  7. So have I, but I still support legalization. I’ve seen many other factors that have turned the “smart” into the “mediocre.” Maybe they don’t see themselves as anything but who they are/want to be & it’s not our place to judge.

    I’ve seen many “successful” pot users, too. And happy ones…………So, using the law won’t be the answer.

  8. cant stop rape, corruption , bank robberies… guess there are many things that should become legal… BTW.that’s sarcasm
