You can set age restrictions, but the people who buy it legally will have it sitting in their house and anyone can have a hand at it.

Also, just like with Cigs and Alcohol, you would have older people buying these hardcore drugs for younger people if we made it ALL legal.
Yep, with marijuana being illegal now it has done wonders to stop kids from smoking it.

Marijuana should be legal. However it is a gateway drug nobody just walks down the street one day and smokes crack, they started with weed.

The government should be in complete control, build dispenseries and for those who want to can fill out an application and we get our weed cards. Of course something would have to be worked out for how old someone would have to be to get one as well as mental stability (nutcase).

The terminally ill should get it free paid for by the taxes we would pay on the marijuana we buy. That and it is a multi billion dollar buisness pretty much that's a lot of money to help with healthcare, education, social assistance and what have you.

just my thoughts anyway.

I am pro legalization ofcourse. Anyone who honestly thinks it should be illegal doesnt know enough about it and needs to see the sun a little more. The plant does way more good than bad. Fast food places have done more damage to people than marijuana could ever do. Marijuana cant kill you in anyway, it cannot hurt you permanitly. A double cheese combo from mcdonalds WILL do nothing but keep you feed and keep your body hurting. How many people have died from not eating right and basically eating fast food everyday. Now how many people have died from smoking marijuana, None for sure. People get high and either do nothing or are in a really good mood. Alot of people who drink alcohol get addicted easily and can have really bad anger issues and blackouts. Marijuana does none of that. I dont know one person who smoked a doobie and truly wanted to fight or was angry after smoking. Racism made it illegal and voters rights have keeped it illegal. So its just a few smacks in the face from becoming legal. It isnt as much of a racist society like it was. So now we just have to show how much this is adapted into everyday life and how it isnt bad its actually a really good medacine. When my generation is in office then it will be legal for sure if it wasnt done earlier. I am 23, Thats only about 10-20 years away. Long but close.
BTW, Marijuana is not a gateway drug. The only gateway is curiosity and reality. You tell me I am gonna see things that dont exist and am gonna lovin the colors and so on of course I will want to trip. Not because I have been smoking pot. Marijuana is a gateway like Emo is a style. People will do whatever they feel. No matter how retarded it is and makes them look.

I disagree the potential is much higher for someone who smokes pot to, A) find out about the harder drug B)finding out about it's effects and C) find out how much it is and where. I'm sorry but people who stay away from drinking and smoking don't tend to think about doing E or cutting up a rail I can see it happening to a very small percentage but not enough. Weed and alcohol and even cigarettes opens those options up to you in some way shape or form they are all drugs and all 3 of the IMO are "gateway" drugs.

BTW marijuana does hurt you, smoking plant material is not natural and is something our bodies don't really like. Just like smoking ciggs it damages your lungs, even though pot has much less chemicals in it's material it is still harmful and recent studies have shown that there is a risk of carcinogen effects, which doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

I completely agree that it is a good medicine though my great grandma had cancer and the only way she could stand to eat without vomiting it back up was pot, and it did an amazing job relieving her from her chemo treatments.

As I'm saying to Jas, I don't care about MJ, just about the people who think ALL drugs should be legalized.

And just to clarify, marijuana isn't even a drug, much less a hardcore one. Not sure if you were including it in that group or not.
I'm more trying to address the people on here that think ALL (the reason why I bolded and caps it) drugs should be legal.

I really don't care about MJ, but it is a drug ( I know it's not a hard drug). I have many friends that smoke it and I've even smoked it before, but since it's illegal right now, why mess with something that can get you in trouble.

My reference to Cigs and alcohol and you pointing out guns doesn't pertain to why I'm against the hard drugs being legal.

All that you have said about guns, cigs, and alcohol being bought by elders is true, but doesn't have the same effect if hard drugs were legalized and elders bought it and young ones got ahold of it. Smoking a cig for the first time and taking your first drink at a young age, isn't as bad as snorting coke, injecting heroin, or meth for the first time and at a young age.

I'm more against legalizing these hard drugs. When it comes to pot, whatever. It doesn't bother me much since I don't really smoke it. I'll let the people who smoke it debate about rather it be legal or not, but wanting ALL drugs to be legal is just ridiculous.

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

Well since this thread is about marijuana and as far as I can tell you are the only one to bring up other drugs, what really was the point of your post?

That was the reason for my post MLS. I wasn't the first to mention other drugs being legalized.

As far as smoking plant material and all that can be controlled by the grow and cure. If marijuana was legal the chances of it being a gateway drug would be so low. If a pot smoker grows it thats %99.9 less exposure to other drugs if they arnt hanging out with crackheads straight up. Marijuana cant be the gateway in itself. Its wrong to stick out just marijuana being the cause of other drug usage. If someone doesnt want to do another drug they wont. If they dont hang around people that do other drugs it wont be around them. Certain areas have certain drug issues and it just starts with selling it then trying it and getting addicted to. I would say the true gateway to any drug is just simply being born and walking the streets of real life. Has nothing to do with sitting at home and smoking one or going out and getting a bag. This has happened quite a few where we wanted to get some marijuana and someone came bag with white stuff and not a single person wanted it. We were like WTF and sent them back to get the original plan. Marijuana is just somewhere to put the blame and not see the real issues.

I didn't intend my reply to be sarcastic. Sorry if it seemed like it.
