I witnessed the positive effects of medical marijuana, while my 22 year old son was recently being treated for Hodgkins Lymphoma. He could not tolerate the usual Rx's and this was a welcome alternative route.

One of the most common misconceptions of whether or not to legalize marijuana is that it does not cause harm. What you never seem to hear is the economic impact that legalizing marijuana would
have. When you are looking at Labor and Industry claims nationwide one fact stands out. The number one cause for work place accidents is not alcohol, cocaine or other drugs, its marijuana. It is interesting
that proponents of legalization want to look at the economic gain in tax, but they fail to see the much
larger cost of the labor and industry claims. As for "medical marijuana", in the areas that have legalized it they have experienced an increase in L&I claims as well as an increase in fraudulently obtained prescription. In short, before you jump on the bandwagon, look into the facts. There is a lot of information with the "pro's" for legalization, yet they fail to mention what the true cost to the community and it can affect both individuals and families. I look forward to hearing others thoughts
on this subject so we can as a community have an open discussion that will help guide our community
towards goals that will pave a path for generations to come.

Yes, tax it and use the money toward rehab and education. It would blow the wind out of the Mexican gang's sales. It would prevent, these same criminals, from kidnapping innocent individuals and forcing them to live and grow weed, on our Bureau of Land Management land, or the Mexican Mafia will kill, the poor innocent's family. After, all, the lies, our government, has made, about pot, it is hard to get the pitbull like bite of law inforcement, on board. Everyone knows if you are even found innocent, the cops, still, treat people like they are criminals. Also, we could free up space, in our prisons; so we could have a place for corrupt CEO's and politicians. ty

You are not only a naysyaer, you do not understand the facts and are wrong about the economics. It would be a self stabilizing industry, and will offer jobs on many levels. One must look toward Humbolt County (Richest, in California...), CA. Besides, are you a "Flip"? If so, mind you own buisness. It sounds like you might be involved in illegal distribution...we'll check you out...

It is, only, wrong to you, because you have been programed, by the government ( who makes, outrageous taxes off pot, anyway...) to believe , that way. It is , extremely, useful for patients who cannot eat, for one instance. Pot prosecution, equates to class warfare.Old guard against the reality, of today.

Prohibition organizes crime. It's that simple.
Now, can the idiots in government not see that?
Or is it that the growth of organized crime seems to justify the growth of government?
