It is so funny how our overlords believe that they can dictate to us what we may or may not stuff in our pipes.

A free man stuffs his pile with whatever he wants to smoke in America. We are only slaves to unjust laws if we obey them. Whether marijuana is legal or illegal makes very little difference in our society today. The very fact that it is illegal does more to add to the appeal than anything else.

Here you can have as much weed as you need to have and it is only a misdemeanor. Less than an ounce it is usually a ticket. I say just make it a civil onfraction rather than a crime for less than an ounce.$200 fine and case closed. No crime.

I have been smoking all m life and I know dozens that have as well. No one has ever been busted since adulthood. The laws are doing nothing to deter adults and are probably encouraging kids to smoke it.

The worst side effect of marijuana is the police.

The worst side effect of marijuna is not the police, it the STUPID that you become. My son is a full-fledged pot-head and has redefined the word "stupid". He thinks his pot smoking has no effect on his life, his daughter (she is 6 today), and that nobody notices when he is higher than a kite.

His ex-girlfriend took the daughter with her because dipshit was smoking pot with my granddaughter in the same room and claims it wouldn't affect her at all.

He is just like his biological father, who was also STUPID but his wasn't caused by pot smoking.

Get the Tea Party to get it done. Every Politician is scared of them, anyway.

Watch the guy on YouTube completely cure his skin cancer with hemp oil! Amazing! The problem is that it will greatly reduce the profits of the medical industry. Pharmaceutical companies would loose sooooo much $$$$. Poor them.:(

It's allll about profit. Most all of our prisons are owned by private corporations who make tons of money on each and every prisoner that the have incarcerated. Too bad.

It was an amazing aid to my condition after a total hysterectomy. Mood and body was completely chill. I have never had one hot flash or any menopausal symptoms like they said I would have. That's after having one at 25 years old. Sometimes I miss California. Only for that reason though. :)

It's how much and what kind you smoke. It all depends on the person. You said it yourself at the end when his father is stupid and not a "pot head".
Is he a drinker? I believe that makes someone far more "stupid".

Legalizing Pot will definitely increase the usage of the the users, to one or more of the most Deadlier Drugs out there. TO WIT: Cocaine, Meth, Acid, ETC! Do not legalize Marijuana. I have been there!
You haven't been there. ALCOHOL is THE gateway drug. When you drink it your inhibition goes down and you'll try anything. Ive smoked plenty of pot in the past. Not hooked on any drugs yet.(well maybe some booze) Like tagging our walls said - having an addictive personalities has a lot to do with it.

Think about it - most of your friends etc are either dead or dying etc. HOW has the war on drugs helped you? Doesn't seem like it's working too well for any of us.

The only people it is helping is people in powerful positions in the government, and they aren't about to give that power up. Imagine being able to lay off most of the DEA, POLICE etc. That would save a few bucks.

Stay sober and good luck!
