    The problem is that a certain number of legalization proponents, rather than recognize the problems of any drug and argue for legalization on a "personal choice" basis, pretend that pot is either wholly harmless or some sort of miracle drug.

    If you want to legalize it, fine, but don't pretend that doesn't carry with it at least some of the same problems as legal booze and/or legal tobacco.

    "But the poor, who already have a hard time holding down jobs and taking care of their families, are more frequently using a drug that makes it harder for them to focus, to remember things and to behave responsibly."

    Bullshit.

    when i was growing, my cost per ounce was about $10. the prices being asked in stores is higher than needed and the ridic taxes make it worse.

    it's a weed! :grad:

    Like being under the influence of an intoxicant. What do you think it does?

    It might not be the world's worst drug by any means but that doesn't mean it can't be abused (like any other drug).

    Every generation they try another scare tactic to criminalize marijuana. Almost anything they say bad about pot applies even more to Alcohol and we can all go out to any of thousands of bars in every state tonight and drink ourselves to death.

    I have a couple friends who smoke regularly. Both can barely pay their bills, but still manage to dump a few hundred bucks a month on weed.

    plenty of people smoke every day and have good jobs and lives. i have known quite a few of them. i worked hard everyday at work. never got high until i got home. i'm not that rare. :)

    there is a big difference between getting high and getting stoned every day. big difference.
