    Not sure that alcohol should be banned, since despite the fact that it's obviously worse than marijuana, most people are nonetheless perfectly capable of using it responsibly. On all other accounts I agree 100%. Frankly, I think all drugs should be legalized. The weaklings that look to drugs to deal with life do it regardless of whether or not the substance in question - whether that be alcohol, heroin, cocaine, whatever - is legally permitted. But if they were all legal, it would harm the various criminal organizations that depend on drug dealing, it would allow the substances to be taxed, monitored and regulated, and it would empty our ridiculously overcrowded (only really referring to the U.S. here) prisons of a lot of folks that did no crime other than trying to get themselves high. Marijuana, being the most harmless one, should be the first legalized substance. But in time, I think all of them should be allowed.

    I to think we should make them legal. It would cut down on violence around the globe. I do not do drugs other than a beer from time to time. But I don't agree with drug testing on job sites unless they can tell you did it on the clock. I believe what a man does in his own home is up to him. By making drugs legal jails would be less populated and a far less burden on tax payers

    No, i have smoked alot of weed, so much that i know enough about it.
    People say you cannot be addicted to weed, well.. That is just not right, mabye you can't physical, but i tell you, you can 100% be mental.
    I smoked 10-15g weed every day(I know it's not healty) I was addicted to it, my live was stopping, the only think i was thinking on was >smoke some weed<..
    But 1 thing will continue to another, and sure it was, i was taking alot of other things.

    Like Playaa say "Your body, your choice" -But some people can't see how much it's really destorying your life in the end, if you can't hold it on a minimum..

    I would say legalize it, if not the awful smell that carries very far.
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    Smoke some and then decide for yourself what they should do with that; careful not to get too intoxicated.

    a person can be mentally addicted to ANYTHING, food, drugs, sex, another person, etc..... has nothing to do with the actual substance. That is more of a mental thing with the user.

    those are also some of the very reasons marijuana remains illegal on the federal level in the U.S.

    Canada outlawed marijuana in 1923, as a result of participation in international conferences about the scourge of recreational drug use, even though very few people in Canada used marijuana for anything other than medical purposes at that time. It didn't become a popular recreational drug here until the 1960s. A federal commission looked at the situation and recommended legalization in the 1970s, but that didn't happen because of pressure from the American government. And now we have a government of right wing dicks here in Canada who want to increase penalties for marijuana use, growth and distribution. They're putting a lot of people in jail for no reason, and hurting our balance of payments with the U.S. by preventing the growth and export of marijuana to the large market to the south of us.

    I gather that the American history of marijuana use goes back a lot further, and some attempts to outlaw it were made in the 19th century, but its eventual prohibition on a federal level in the U.S. mostly had to do with finding work for government agents who had lost their jobs because of the repeal of alcohol prohibition there.

    Does anyone know the history of marijuana use in Europe? I read something about smoking pipes that Shakespeare used being examined for drug residue and they apparently found traces of marijuana and cocaine, but I don't know if those results were ever confirmed.

    on the history channel they had a show one time that did exhibit those pipes known to have belonged to Shakespeare and they did say that yes, they had marijuana residue on them.

    plus, when you look at something like "A Mid-Summer's Night Dream" it makes you wonder.........

    LOL. When I look at something like "A Midsummer's Night's Dream", it makes me wonder whether the Bard was smoking opium, or was maybe a time travelling acidhead.

    one my other favorites is Alice n Wonderland.......she eats a shroom, then trips out, and along the way meets a talking caterpillar smoking a hookah.

    you dont have to be a Jefferson Airplane fan to figure that one out, either.

    I didn't know that. But why smoke it, just eat brownies. It is much less invasive to your neighbors.

    I guess more people would eat brownies or lollipops if they had more access to them, maybe.

    I actually have heard that eating marijuana brownies gets a person higher than just smoking it.
    Ingesting it has a stronger affect.

    Actually, I was a Jefferson Airplane fan at one time. Then I got old and boring, and that kind of music now hurts my ears. I've come to prefer classical music. And it's been a very long time since I had any personal interest in marijuana. However, if other people want to smoke, the only problem is that they may annoy others around them, so I agree that other ways of consuming marijuana are better if you're around other people who don't smoke. That's just good manners.

    Some countries make good money with legalization, so why not?
    If alcohol is legal, what's wrong with cannabis?
