Marijuana to Be Decriminalized Nationally!

Would this be an attempt to legally dumb up the populace?

Also, what is said to the guys who are doing time for what they would now be making legal?

Especially those at the end of their sentences who just were locked up for x amount of time for what would now be legal.

I will be the first to admit that I don't know much about the sport of pot smoking and how much it differs from being drunk.

It is hard to understand how the politicians feel they have to constantly create new laws to protect us from ourselves and then they legalize a substance that impairs and effects one's judgement.

These are the same that state we must wear seat belts in a car but legalized doing 70 MPH on a motorycle w/o a helmet.

For those of you who are in favor of this legalization I am now sitting in my little desk with my snack and juice jug in front of me and my name tag on in the front of the classroom ready for a good schooling!

Honestly, I just don'e get it.

In my eyes wrong is wrong and if they went this long w/o being presented good evidence as to why it should be made legal then why now?

Somehow I feel there is a tie to the fact this is occurring and Obama is in office (just because as Gump says: "Stupid is as stupid does.")

Did I somehow slip back into the 60s?

Okay, how many of you still dress like the two guys on the KFC commercial that orders two chicken pot pies?

God bless!!

Here is the simple truth: The war on drugs has NOT stopped people from getting drugs. You might have some argument if the cops could actually prevent drugs from being available..but they cannot. In fact, they fail utterly miserably at it every single day.

Not one single person in America has ever not smoked a joint because of the war on drugs. Just like not one single person ever stopped drinking because of Prohibition.

What the war on drugs is, in fact, is a war on liberty. A war on the American people.

40 years and counting...when is the war on freedom going to end?

You would be incorrect.

I've never "smoked a joint" - it's not legal.

And if it was legal you'd suddenly start smoking just because it was?

You never drank beer under age 21? That was illegal too.

I rather suspect you never smoked pot because it is not in your character to smoke pot. I rather suspect that you do participate in other illegal activities that do suit your character.

I'm not asking you to admit it. In fact, i advise you deny it. Smile

Not beer, but I think I had a wine cooler or two when I was 20.

Shhhhhh...


Yes, you are correct about it not being my character, but I can't say that I would not have tried it when I was younger if it weren't illegal. In fact, I'd guess I would have been more likely to have at least tried it. I didn't though, because I knew it wasn't legal - or at least more "not legal" than the wine cooler. Wink

I say great, hope it passes. I know plenty of friends who smoked Pot, never did hardcore drugs and went on to live successful lives. Just make it legal and let people enjoy it. I just wonder if this law passes how it will affect corporate policies at the majority of businesses? I know where I work the smallest of accidents require you to take a piss test, if they find Pot in your system (Stays in your system for 30 days?) they fire you on the spot.

I'm pretty much in the same place as you. Additionally, why is it; in a time of such a threat to our freedom are so many people becoming more, and more concerned with the freedom to smoke pot? It's a huge distraction from what really matters if nothing else. If Obama legalized, or decriminalized pot wouldn't that just give him a platform to stand on and say that he's the most liberty-focused and freedom oriented president in the modern era?

More and more people are becoming concerned, because more and more people are realizing that it never should have been criminalized in the first place and that the WOD has had a negative impact on our society and culture. As demonstrated in this thread, the evidence is so strongly on one side that non-users are making the case for and/or supporting decriminaliztion. You know you are winning the argument when people who don't have a vested interest go out of their way to express their support for overturning bad law.

Wouldn't that be nice? I could get off this god-awful anti-anxiety drug and just smoke weed. I actually think we will see marijuana legalized nationally in our lifetimes, it's just a matter of how long it will take.

Care to wager whether or not it would become a crime to be carrying under the influence? Have to stop those evil guns after all.
