Will Marijuana be legalized in the US in our lifetime?
Is it just a matter or time? Or will it never happen?
I'm assuming you are between 18 and 30. I think by the time we are 50 it will be legalized.
With the U.S. being pressured by leaders of many other developed countries to end our failed "war on drugs", I believe it's only a matter of time before marijuana IS legalized. Hopefully sooner than later!
Marijuana is already legal in approximately 16 of the 50 United States. There is (or was) pending legislation in approximately 12 additional states. I know the ultimate scenario is for the feds to legalize it, but first, the states must act. So, yes, I believe that states will continue to legalize and eventually the feds will too...in "our" lifetime
Hard to say. Its outlawing in the mid-twentieth century was a somewhat random event in a way, though the prevalence of anti-marijuana legislation around the world today suggests more pervasive factors at work.
To venture a guess, in the next two decades cannabis will be legalized in a number of nations. And while this may be an advance viewed from the perspective of personal liberty, it will happen partly in order to enhance governmental political control/social stability. (Cf., the drug 'soma' in Huxley's "Brave New World.") Despite the fears of 1930s drug prohibitionists, really serious stoners don't tend to riot--much less organize.
Dont know but it should be. Ìt is the fastest way for the economy to get back on its feet. The problem is though: if it is legalised, those that are rich now may not stay that way, there could be a new rich and that is the problem.
should be. never hear of ANYONE overdosing on weed, anyone losing control on weed, all natural, great pain reliever and the side effect if the munchies and wanting more sex. the only reason it illegal is the pharmaceutic company will lose billion of dollars and if corporation start to sell weed , it very very easy to grow for it weed.

Should Sports gambling be legalized? Some countries legalize it for the sake of getting taxes...from it, even though it may be against their primary principles. I suppose in politics, compromising principles for the sake of dollars may be one of the sacrifices, or is it greed?

So I wanted to know what people think about marijuana. I know many people think it's bad but when asked they can never explain why. They go by what other uninformed people say. So I thought I would post this to get everyone's input. Do you think weed should be legal or stay illegal?
