    What do you think of Nancy Pelosi backing the LEGALIZATION of marijuana?  Has the

    Democratic Party gone completely amiss into the realm of insanity in America?

    its wonderful, and about time. marijuana is a healing plant. the only reason it was demonized is because certain business interests didnt want the competition. maybe they'll make sugar illegal now, and prisons can make money off those with a sweet-tooth.

    All drugs should be legalized. Particularly marijuana because of it's many uses.
    But, there's too much money to be made with the "war" on drugs - by the military industrial complex  and big pharma.
    Once agin it shows that our government is not interested in what's good for the people, but what puts money in the pockets of our elected officials.
    That's one thing about Trumps policies I disagree with.
    Legalize them all, and treat them like any drug put out by big pharma.
    The "war" on drugs has been going on for over 40 years, it's time to take a different approach.

      Praise God for sane persons such as yourself! My state will probably be one of the last to do the right thing, but it is definitely coming.

    Although I don't partake in smoking anything I realize close to 60% of the population is in favor of legalizing marijuana on some level.
    If anything politicians are late to addressing the wants of the majority.
    Every generation is more "socially liberal" than the previous one.
    Generation X and Millennials didn't grow up believing just because marijuana was illegal it was worse than alcohol or prescription drugs.
    They weren't exposed to propaganda movies like "Reefer Madness" blowing (green smoke), suddenly becoming violent, promiscuous, seeing the eye of stove on fire as a flower and other nonsense.
    Their parents and grandparents are "Baby Boomers" the ones who launched the hippie lifestyle, "free love", "Turn on,Tune in, Drop out" movements. Marijuana to them was the equivalent of drinking beer.
    Granted today's marijuana is much more potent than the "Baby Boomers" had they still view it as being safer than alcohol.
    Last but not least marijuana has been documented to have medicinal usefulness regarding cancer nausea, glaucoma, bi-polar disease..etc
    Democrats and Libertarians are often the first political groups in favor of social and personal freedom issues that defy traditional thinking when they realize the majority of people approve.
    Pro-choice, Interracial Marriage, Gay Marriage, and Medical marijuana weren't known to be supported by conservatives.
    I suspect Nancy is more in step with (the majority) than insane.

    She's appealing to young voters and that's all. The days are numbered for the illegalization of the harmless drug marijuana.

    Make them all legal, their production, their distribution, tax the heck out of them and they would still be cheaper, and safer than what is out there.

    Make them controlled just like liquor and prescription drugs are, someone wants them, and uses them while driving or at work, you treat it just as we do now, just like a DUI... put the Drug Cartels out of work... that would do away with much of the very dark and deadly activities that go with trafficking drugs that winds into our society.

    There are plenty of identity thefts, child kidnappings, domestic violence, robberies, rapes, etc. to jeep our security and police forces busy... focusing our efforts on drug users, and drug pushers, is a waste of resources and time.

      Two thumbs up. If I had three, I'd up the third one too.

    Decriminalization of marijuana is the single best thing about the democratic party, in my never humble opinion. It pains me how most of the rest of their policy makes so little sense as decriminalizing a plant that has been medicine for thousands of years longer than being criminalized.

      they are also for decriminalizing abortion, loving the same sex, and voting. its about personal rights and freedom. if you "have" to buy healthcare...oh boohoo
