i bealieve that the legalization of marijuana would bring alot of money to our community an could be taxed for more mony for our government to help us out off debt this would also cut back on the money used in the drug task force an what it cost to fly the helicopter

As far as crime pot heads usually don't rob people it's these people smoking crack and taking pills that put peoples lives In danger.

you are all crazy! how would it bribg money to the community? If its legal its sold and taxed basically the same way cigarretes are. Legal things don't cost nearly as much. Who's gonna grow it? When its legal you will have to grow 200 acres of it to make the same as you would with 50 square feet now. People who grow pot are WAAAY to lazy to work that much nor do they have that much land. People who grow dope aint gonna work and won't make any money once its legal which would force them to steal cars riob houses and mug people actually increasing the crime rate. Marijuana is a gateway drug not to mention it makes you dumb as a brick and lazy as he11. which leads me to believe most of you guys are serious potheads.

If it harms no one but the user what business is it of yours? I know people who smoke and have worked all their lives, own homes, pay taxes, etc. etc. If the only harm it causes is to the user what business is it of yours? We in this country seem to forget that it was LEGAL up until the last 80 yrs. You ever read in your history books about how messed up the country was back then and all the mass laziness ... nah I didn't think so. Tell me if you will about all the success the war on drugs has been. Forty years since Nixon declared the modern war on drugs and the result? Drugs are: more readily availabe, cheaper and more dangerous, not to mention the billions of dollars spent. What possible good can come from locking up over 1 million non-violent offenders. Most of the serious drug problems come from your local pharmacy and pain clinics which are all perfectly legal. It is a perilous path we choose when we as a society can tell the individual what he/she is allowed to put into their own bodies regardless of whether we agree with it or not. That my friend is the essence of the foundation of our country's beliefs. Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness....even if includes something I don't agree with you.
