I believe that he was making the point that not all cannabis users are unproductive, unmotivated, unemployed losers. Although they don't usually make it to the "pot rally's" shown on the news (because they are at work), the majority of cannabis users are just your everyday citizen.

I would argue that because neither the extreme "pot-head," nor the prohibitionist represents the majority of citizens, then perhaps prohibition should be re-examined. After all, freedom and liberty does in fact provide the opportunity for citizens to make choices for themselves, that others would not.

Furthermore, the federal laws covering cannabis are shaky at best. The federal government enacted them using the commerce clause, arguing that a plant grown on ones own property (and consumed there) somehow impacted interstate commerce. This is quite a stretch. This same legal argument was just shot down by the supreme court as unconstitutional regarding Obama Care. If the political will was ever available, this federal prohibition would be ended and the legalities of cannabis would be left to the states as the Constitution intended.

no matter how you play it... it's still breaking the law. and as long it is so, those who break it are criminals in the usa. PERIOD.

frankly, I feel like breaking the law sometimes. I feel like clubbing you guys who are into dope. why not? since breaking the law is the trend now. why not?

I'm not hurting anyone except the the dope addicts. right? they are criminals. you could say I'm helping out the cops. and the money I take from them will stop me from having to go to the state for financial assistance.

Yes, let's legalize it. After all, it is no more dangerous than cigarettes and cigars. If you really think that, I challenge you to a trial. I'll get in my car and you in yours, we'll both chain-smoke as we drive the Freeways fom LAX to Fraser Park. See which one makes it??? Har-Har!
sorry lets change that from cigs to alcohol, you dope. It would ever to be legal to driver under just like anything else that changes behavior, cold meds and pot. You dont know what you are talking about ,

Police need jobs, what a waste to go after pot farmers, the price is already down so much, i love it, they are going out of business in CA. Make it legal everywhere and control it and see what happens, It wont be cool , allot of people will stop selling because there is no money in it. Make sense!

You have missed my point Asian Guy. I know what the laws are, my point is that they are worth revisiting. Let's apply your logic to "The People vs. Hall" (1854). This law ruled that Chinese people could not testify against a white person because there are "a race of people whom nature has marked as inferior, and whom are incapable of progress or intellectual development beyond a certain point...."
Would you argue that any chinese person should be clubbed for attempting to testify? It would be breaking the law...PERIOD. No? They would be criminal right? And besides, with their inferior intellect and whatnot, who cares, we would be helping the cops.
No,

The "majority"???

This has been voted on MANY times, if it was the "majority" we wouldn't be having this discussion.
