I think it needs to be decriminalized. Legalized, not so much.

I see that as a more realistic step. Haven't some states like Colorado and Alaska made it legal to posess up to 1 oz.?

Yeah, I'd love for it to be legalized. But it will be long before that happens. We need to be pushing for decriminalization before legalization.

They have SOME decriminalization laws, which make fines not very harsh, and also so it's not a policemans top priority.  It only applies to some states, and because of them, I am here today and not in jail/trying to pay off a 1000 dollar fine. 


Now comparing it to the same level as alcohol is a hard thing.  Alcohol impairs a user so much more than a user of marijuana (in my opinion atleast...), and a person is more likely to get up and drive somewhere while drunk compared to a person who would just want to sit and relax while high (again, from personal experience & experiences with various people).  Marijuana is also so much less harmful than alcohol, atleast in terms of a lethal amount, because there have been zero recorded deaths from use, compared to the thousands recorded from both alcohol, tobbacco, otc and prescription meds.   Maybe in the way it impairs a user is what makes it similar to alcohol, but that's about the only connection that I can make so far...

Funny thing is, the Constitution gives the states the rights to regulate anything not specifically named to the federal government's authority.
So technically, the federal government has no authority in the matter, but in our messed up world of today, they control it anyways.

The federal government needs to get out of states'/voters' business. 10 years ago California passed the "Compassionate use" law, allowing medicinal users of marijuana to smoke without risk of the government intervention. Dispensaries have been established, and an ID card system is currently used to prevent just anyone from getting this "medicine."
For some reason the federal government, teamed with the DEA think they have the right to override voter's wishes and raid these dispensaries.
Has anyone seen this democracy I heard about in school?

You're wrong. Plain and simple. Research has PROVEN that the effects of THC on the neurotransmitters in the brain lead to psychological addictions.

Which research is this? Have you seen this research, or did your health teacher/DARE instructor tell you this? Or are you just spouting out of your ass?

Addiction is not the same as psychological dependence. Addiction is a disease with symptoms, the most important of which are withdrawal symptoms. These are not found even in cases of extreme psychological dependence on marijuana.
Anything you do, from weed to sex to work can potentially form psychological dependence.
I know what addiction is; I am addicted to cigarettes.
I also use marijuana more than most people, and I am NOT addicted to it, nor are any of my other "stoner" friends.
I've taken breaks from smoking ranging from a week to a year, and never had any withdrawal symptoms.

A more likely story is that he used too much AXE deodorant and his family died from the smell.

No, he was a marijuana addict, and he chopped up his family after he smoked because it makes you violent, and it makes you hate your family.
