    Legalizing marijuana? good or bad thing?

    Arizona recently approved medical weed, but what about making any weed legal?

    I think it's a good idea.  It's being used anyway by millions so it would take it out of the hands of gangs and crime and put it into the tax base revenues, remove the cost of enforcement, and keep a lot of innocent people out of jail saving even more money.

    It's certainly not worse than drinking, in fact I'm a firm believer that if they were going to choose one it would have been safer to go with pot.  Now I said safer not smarter.

    Sure they might as well, a lot of people use it anyways!
    I was looking at a scientific study recently, were spiders were subjected to different stimuli, including LSD, cocaine, marijuana and other narcotics and CAFFEINE.
    The study was aimed at observing the spiders general behaviors and spider web structure and production.
    In the end it was found that narcotics didn't affect the spiders ability to carry out their general tasks and their spider webs were quite normal looking. BUT when subjected to CAFFEINE, the spiders were affected drastically and their webs were poorly constructed and were quite atrocious!

    So hmmmm do you think caffeine affects us worse than marijuana?

    it's a good idea in so many ways. it's about freedom of choice, letting honest people who smoke not worry about getting a criminal record and a good way for the government to make extra tax money.

    I honestly think that its just about as good/bad as drinking, might be a little better even. Drinking is legal so marijuana should be as well.

    Just regulate it properly and there shouldn't be too much problems. I view marijuana use as something similar to illegal gambling. They both happen and there is really not much we can do about them so might as well legalize and regulate.

    The government earns money and hopefully a fraction of the revenues will trickle down to the citizens after everyone else takes their cut. wink

    Alcohol is legal -- Again.  LOL. -- so way not weed?  Not just for medical use only though.   

    I think drugs should be legal period, and I do not drink or do drugs so it does not matter to me for use.  I have a problem with people being arrested and killed for it. 

    Plus to legalize it is to add a much needed revenue to the government in taxes.

    Weed has such a bad stigma about it, it's ridiculous. I think alcohol can be much worse when abused. Also by legalizing it we can control the cost and help stop the nonsense that is going on with the cartels in Mexico.
