        My brother was addicted to drogs. He started with Marijuana. He died three month ago, drowning in a lake high on drogs. Sorry but I have seen to much of the backsides of all kind of drugs to think that legalizing would be a good thing. If it is used as medicin, fine, but nothing else.

        My pot days are behind me as well, a better difference in my life since
        i quit the pot, it did lead me to wanting stronger drugs.. I'm
        just glad i quit. If you ever have just took a real good look at a bunch
        of teenage potheads.. you'd vote a big NO.

        I'm sorry to hear about your brother Tirilej..I am having problems with my brother myself right now.  He just overdosed about 3 weeks ago, and has been putting my family thru hell, but he is ok now, (kinda).

        I don't think the legalization of pot would not make a difference on problems like theirs.  There are bigger issues that need to be dealt with here, these kind of people would probably end up with some other abusive behavior if it isn't marijuana..maybe it would be gambling, like me.

        Although my days of pot smoking are also over,
        I think legalizing marijuana for personal use..under one ounce, would be ok.

        Marijuana they say is bad.  I think it helps the country it keeps the so called wanta be gang members of the street because they are to stoned to drive go rob a bank etc.

        It is not a gate way to another drug.  The drug that the government has to worried about is the meth, cocaine, etc.

        I am not a user of any drugs I just kick the habit of cigs and that was the hardest thing for a person to do.

        It helps sick people with their pain.  And now the government wants to make it legal so that they can tax it.  That is great another thing the government can get their hands on. 

        Their are so many of the medical marijuana stores in L.A right now it is unreal.  Their is no need for you to go to a drug corner to buy weed.  No more drug deals that has gone wrong.

        It is a natural drug that you can even grow on your own.  I see no problem with legalizing the drug.

        Happy gaming all

        Well I guess I'll be the first current smoker to post.  I understand that, in rare circumstances, it can become a gateway drug.  However, I have been a smoker for 20 years and I have some (but not MOST as is the stigmatism) friends that smoke, and other than in our younger,wilder years, no one that I know has had it lead to stronger drugs. Have you ever noticed that you always hear of people that are drunk (legal) or on Meth, Coke ect that get into huge fights or commit murder or armed robbery????  You NEVER hear of someone smoking a joint and doing these things.  Anyone that is stoned is more worried about what they're going to have for a munch at dinner than hurting someone else.  Now on the medical side of things.  I personally suffer from severe stress and stomach acid.  Those issues are severely lessened with the help of marijuana.  It helps me be a normal functioning person instead of a nervous, stressed out basket case that is no good to anyone....especially myself!!!  I have complete respect for everyones opinion on this matter whether it is the same as mine or not.  I just hope that anyone reading my post will have the same respect for my opinion (and experience) as I do for theirs.

        I think your right boo..most pot smokers would just be too tired to get up and go rob a bank..rather argue over whose going to get up and answer the door 

        And now that I have gotten older, I have been trying to use more natural methods of healing...I take too much meds, and am really trying to get off as many as I can.
        So maybe I can trade in the Prilosec for a joint, hey?   :D  It's been a while but I'm sure it would probably help me destressed and maybe even help me sleep a little.

        My take on the legalization of drugs, pot being the least of it is that the largest cause of drugs ruining a persons life, and impacting society come almost solely from the fact that they are illegal.

        Unlike alcohol, someone with an addiction has little recourse for recovery, the very illegality placing such a risk on procurement that prices, and profits are astronomical almost begging for organised gangs and underworlds willing to kill to keep the profits rolling in.

        Instead of nearly bankrupting our communities in an effort to "fight" a hypocritical war on drugs, taxation, similar to that on alcohol and tobacco, would go vast distances in bringing in much needed funding to commumities large and small. In a period of last gasp struggling by our nations small farmers, a new cash crop, one that has a diversity of uses such as hemp (Cannibis sativa's superiority to cotton for everything from paper and rope to clothing and even fine pigments is well documented.)

        Add to this the not only known medicinal benefits, but those that medical research has still not discovered we have a potentially beneficial product the likes of which surged this nation into the last industrial age with the invention of the cotton gin.

        This being said, marijuana as a recreational drug is probably less harmful to a community than alcohol has ever been. The physical detriments to the human body less dangerous, the acute symtoms less impairing and in moderation, the chronic long term use, studies are showing, less harmful than tobacco.

        As a gateway drug, or leading to further experimentation with harder drugs, once more the illicitness of doing something rebellious, the risk of being caught for what is a minor mellow buzz gets weighed and a more intense High for the risk is a natural progression.

        While I no longer indulge, except on very rare occasions there is not a drug out there that at one point or another in my life has not been given a try... (sometimes more than single experiments, grin). Yes, as Neil Young so eloquently put it, I have seen the needle and the damage done... but also have the intellegence to recognize how much of that damage, and the draw to self destructive personalities  that the very illicitness of the drugs themselves has been the draw... rather than the simple Buzz from the use.

        We are adults... there is no coercion for anyone to use anything... There should not be any to prevent it either.

        Jimb, that was excellent to read, perfectly and very well said.
        But for me, Marijane did lead to stronger drugs, and most will
        not admit that. Alot Marijuana has become their savior to facing life
        depending on it for relaxation, fun, and the getaway from what life
        can do to us, in turn makes one not find the way life should be.
        You end up not motivated, just wanting to get high and forget the world
        When it gets tougher, the drug yearn gets stronger. Then you become
        dependent on it, ending up with weak minded adults trying to find
        the easy way out, "we don't need a job" "let's just sell weed".. Ending up
        not getting an education. When life drops you off this Merry-go-Round
        and it's just not fun anymore, the next step.. a stronger drug.. and there ya go.. oh this is just too easy.. selling this stuff to addicted people, can't get enough of it, and using it themselves,  you can see this picture.. i hope

        Smoking weed did impair me, it is not natural, and any other illegal
        drug i ever used impaired my judgement, distorted my correct thoughts,
        I'm just thankful i no longer use them, and have found the beauty
        and magic that life has to offer without them..
        I'm against it because of the devastration i have seen others in
        and them only starting with that first puff of Mary J

        Much more to say but i think i need a drink and a cig

        Imagination,

        All of what you said is also relevant to Alcohol, tobacco and any other proscribed drug. There will always be those amongst us with dependant personalities, there will always be those with entitlement thinking ( dont need a job, I'll just kick back and waste away) and you make my point with the comment "I'll just sell drugs". The only reason selling drugs is a lucrative is because being illegal, they draw top dollar. Remove that incentive and much of the problems asociated with it go away.

        Remove the stigma of illegality and the dependant personalities are able to seek out the support system's, similar to AA, without stigma.

        Just my 2 cents.

        Yes, but legalizing Alcohol was a big mistake, it has devastated alot of families, and i think that if it wasn't so easy to get it wouldn't be so much
        heartache, and be less as destructive as even weed, making it so easy
        is what has gotten booze so bad, and cigarettes same thing

        Well, I don't know about you guys, but I never had any problem with procurement, and I sure as hell didn't worry about price, or gang members.
        I was buying a quarter pound every thursday and splitting it up between four of us, no high prices, no troubles as you have there...pot was a lot cheaper back then too, and better variety.

        And I like you Viv..did start out with pot, then hash, then whatever I could get my hands on..it was the time we lived in..some of us did it, some didn't.  I always had that try anything twice attitude, so I don't know if it was a gateway, or if it just would have happened.  I just like to think of myself as spirited.  But whether it is legal or not, people need to know there own limits.  Its up to them to take care of themselves, not the government.

        Hi Tiri,

        I am so sorry for you loss. In personal experiences of pain and loss such as what you have been through, its completely understandable why you would feel legalization should be forbidden.

        Thanks for sharing such a personal loss. I hope your able to hold on to the fond memories of your brother.

        Hiya boo,

        I have dabbled in weed when i was in high school. I never wanted to rob a bank nor was i ever violent. But i will tell you one thing i could not do.....drive! Everytime i got behind the wheel after smoking......and i was at a stop light or stop sign....i always thought the car in front of me was reversing! I would watch the car getting closer and closer to my bumper and say...."omg they are gonna hit my car"! Well..........guess what......it was me with my foot off the gas...lmaoooo!

        Thanks for sharing hun!
