Should Marijuana, Chronic, Weed, Pot, Mary Jane, Kush, Cannabis, etc be legal?


I was just wondering if it is all it's cracked up to be? I've never tried it...yes I know I'm a wussy, but I've had severe asthma my whole life and can't even smell a cigarette without having an attack. Am I missing something special, or is it overrated? Honestly from what I do know about it, and about the people who smoke it, it's no way near as bad as alcohol is...besides all the food being eaten I've never seen anything compared to the drama I've seen when alcohol is involved. Relax, I'm not for the prohibition of alcohol, I just don't understand why one is legal and the other is not.

    Do you think after the goverment gets done taxing it, it would be any cheaper than it is now?

    I don't even smoke it and I'm all for it being legalized...honestly alcohol should be illegal...that's stuff is dangerous.

    Legalizing could help the economy/country with it being taxed and it could also free up a lot of room in our already over crowded prison systems.

    It's not a physically addictive drug.

    Do you think if it was legal that we would have more people abusing it...like alcohol...and if so, would that be a good or bad thing as far as society is concerned?

    Hmmm real lazy and tired you say...maybe we should give it to the athletes competing against us in the olympics. In all seriousness, I agree with you, it would be a lot safer.

    So you think people are blurring the lines, not taking into consideration the differences between the two?

    Do you think it's out of fear of these "underground gangsters" that they don't legalize it?

    I'm not entirely sure your "Anti" paragraph is all too valid. Society would degenerate? I think society, as a whole, would benefit. But surely there are people who'd misuse it or simply add it to their already unproductive lives. And awful smell?lol!
