    Also I agree. Legalise it and tax the $#@! out of it. Same if not more than cigarettes. Set an age of 18 to purchase. Let retailers decide if they want to sell it. They have to get a license and train staff etc. Also think ban smoking in the streets. Stuff smells far too much.

    I agree. Saying that, the no smoking indoor rule is all of the EU and yet you can still smoke indoors in Holland, they say your not supposed to smoke tobacco with it but you still can. Loopholes i guess

    HEMP! Oil, paper and clothing industries are $#@! scared of the posibilites that hemp can bring that is why they lobby so hard to make sure it doesn't get legalised so they can continue to make thousands if not millions.

    Hemp is a very versatile material that could completely mess up some industries.

    Yes, because a population of potheads high in their homes with the munchies zoning out to some awesome music, watching a movie, playing games or sleeping is soo much worse then a population of drunks leaving the bars and clubs getting into fights and/or driving their cars potentially injuringOr even killing themselves and others.

    It's now officially legal for recreational use in Washington State (where I live), with I-502 passing with a margin of 55% to 44%. I voted yes, because my reasons is different from some others. A lot of you notice that we have a huge crime problem, especially when it comes to drugs. However, compare to something like crack and meth, marijuana is practically comparable to alcohol. It will be highly regulated, a individual must be 21 or over to by an ounce, and they cannot smoke in certain areas.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Initiative_502

    Me personally, I will not smoke it, since I am teetotaler/straight edge. However, doesn't mean marijuana should be illegal. Just look at Amsterdam in the Netherlands(as someone mentioned earlier): it's legal and the crime rate there is very low. I don't think the entire population in the State of Washington is going to light up, but when people do, they will breathe a sigh of relief they won't be arrested, because the police force will be after the REAL bad guys i.e. murderers and rapists.

    Potheads are one of those who are ruining the communities as well. Not only real criminals. Before dealing with serious criminals you will have to deal with potheads at first.

    Woot good job,man. I'm glad you voted. I wonder when we can vote in Nc? I'm voting yes.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I cant stand the smell of marijuana. I can barely stand the smell of cigarettes so imagine how much i hate marijuana. Cigars smell good but this weed crap is disgusting. Im glad im living in a country where weed would be legalized in the last place on earth.

    How exactly does a smoker destroy a community?

    Watch out guys! See that smoker over there? One more joint and he will be attacking the nearest fast food joint!

    Seriously, if you think a smoker can destroy a community I'd love to hear what you think drinkers do.

    I'm on my phone but if someone could embed the video to 'The Streets - Irony of it all' I'd appreciate it. That song is brilliant for this situation.

    I think you dont know what community means. Breaking the law isnt the only thing which affects community as a whole. Drugs cause a lot of problems in schools, environment etc. which are a part of community.

    I'm about the same. I hate the smell of smoke, but the smell of a cigar is enticing. However, i don't smoke either of them. I have to disagree on the weed though because it has a variety of smells just like a cigar does.

    Don't forget the sleeping pill industry. That's a billion dollar industry that would be out of business if consumers could use THC instead (since drugs like ZANAX are easy to overdose and die from, unlike weed, which is also natural).

    And don't forget, if weed is legal, there will be plenty of ways to take it without smoking it. There will be plenty of food you could eat with THC inside. Hash Bakeries and what-not. So weed users could more easily take the drug in a more healthy way.

    Pretty much man. The smokers I know happen to be some of the kindest people you'd ever meet. Definately don't think we're ruining the community.

    The taxes on legalized weed just scares me though, but I guess small trade off for being able to puff safely..

    Reading this I just remembered something that we sell over here. You can buy Cannabis Energy Drinks over here, it's just an energy drink with I think THC or some other extract from the cannabis plant.

    It might be sold in other countries too but I've never seen it anywhere else..

    It does sound contradicting right?

    I haven't tried it personally. It's pretty expensive, 1 euro for a 250ml can even though a can of Monster (500ml) goes for 1,30. I might buy a can or 2 soon as I like trying out different energy drinks.

    They sell 'em in some stores and you can buy it online; http://www.candyonline.nl/Webwinkel-...is-Energy.html

    I have tried them a lot of times. There is a cannabis ice tea and you can buy it in the vending machine here in Switzerland. It just has added flavour but doesnt affect you at all.

    I'm more than aware of what community means. I just don't think legalising cannabis would break down a community. If community's can survive with people drinking alcohol - they can survive from people smoking cannabis. As with everything the responsibility lies with the user and parents of underage kids trying it.

    Very good points. I didn't even think about the effect it could have on sleeping pills or even the pharmaceutical industry. You can see why so many companies would be against it becoming legal!

    Your right about the healthier ways to take it. Eating it and using a vaporiser are both infinitely more healthy for the user. Smoking is just the quickest and simplest way to get the THC even though burning it kills most of it.

    Reduce the amount of people smoking it and that already cuts the small amount of danger it has

    Thats the real reason right there. The pharmacutical companies stand to lose big money as people self medicate instead of buying sleeping aids and whatnot. Thats why the federal supreme court will strike down these propositions.
