It's all about TAXES nothing more......U would think the state would learn from alcohol and the deaths that it causes...now just one more thing mariyuana that a sober person driving or walking gets hurt or killed has to worry about someone high....all over more taxes....life means nothing to state ligislatures when it comes to filling the states coffers.

Really? Ok but how about this... How many people have been killed because it's illegal? Far far far more.

True. I wonder what the official tea party stance is on this? Less goverment involvement and greater personal freedoms.

Sometimes it is better to let people think you are stupid rather than proving it with comments like this.

With some of your dopey statements it would seem you are no stranger to some type of substance abuse.

If not, then I recommend trying something to expand perspective.

Legalization is a mess - now people are suing employers because they were fired for using it medicinally - but their company policy says you can't use it because it's a public safety issue. Only a matter of time before someone in the Armed Forces sues the Feds because they have glaucoma.

Would you care if your kids school bus driver was baked?
Accepted or not, it's a mind altering drug and should be treated as such.

I'd rather have a stoned driver than a drunk driver and alcohol is legal

Stupid is Stupid...under the influence of something is just an excuse. Idiocy runs rampant and at the end of the day, whether Stoned or Straight....the guy is an idiot to start the day he is still an idiot at the end of the day.

Plenty of people Drink responsibly, plenty of people smoke responsibly....

Plenty of idiots accidently shoot themselves and other people....do you appreciate the Gun Control nuts using those same idiots to support their cause.

Its the same rationale.....using the idiot factor to support a cause.
