legalizing marijuana??

I don't think it should be legalized unless it's used for medicinal purposes. It's just another way to develope lung cancer by inhaling the smoke--first hand and second hand. Aren't cigarettes doing enough damage? I wish smoking cigarettes and cigars was illegal. It's also bad for the ozone.

Ok...that evidence is convincing, but I don't trust it. They need to do more research before I'm convinced. Maybe the strength of the marijuana has gotten more potent over the years like cigarettes have. I know men who have smoked basically all their lives and they're in their mid 80's now. I think the cigarettes back in the day weren't as harmful as they are today. Although there are no links to smoking marijuana and lung cancer, I still don't want tar in my lungs, memory loss, my hearing impaired or bronchitis!...and what about the ozone layer? Isn't bad for the ozone?...I just don't really find a need for people to smoke this stuff at all. I heard people smoke it because it relieves stress, but aren't there other alternatives?

My aunt, who also stopped smoking cigs years ago too, has had emphysema since long before I was born. It's all in the luck of the draw. Some people will get very sick, some won't, some won't show signs until much, much later. I'm sure it's the same with drugs, marijuana and alcohol included.
I don't smoke any of the above, nor do I drink much at all. I don't see the appeal in it, so I'm not doing this to defend myself. Friends that do smoke, both cigarettes and marijuana, often do it for the buzz and the high, not just to relieve stress. Some use them as social currency.

I say dont legalize it. It would mess with the quality
Though, I was really pleasantly surprised that the Bob Dylan concert was smoke-free in my area!

It's not really a need to smoke, either. It's really just for fun.

I guess a bad thing about legalizing marijuana would be the taxes...it would make prices go up!

Edited for code problems.
I have to do an argumentative research paper in my ENC1102 class on the legalization of marijuana.. and that just got me wondering what ya'll think about it..

I think it's ridiculous that this country has legalized alcohol, but pot is illegal. I could give a dozen reasons why people would be better off smoking weed than drinking.

I'm saying no for now, because I honestly feel like this would mean that even more non-sober people will be on the roads and out and about. I feel like the legal restrictions against pot use do curb some of the pot-influenced driving that could happen. I can't stand potheads, or just regular folk who are high. Stay at home and out of my way, thanks.

I wish this country had better public transportation. /Ramble

I did 2 research papers on the topic and there are soo many benefits of legalizing marijuana, it's too bad that it is unlikely to happen. I know I would love for it to be legal! Think about what a great mood everyone would be in!

btw - I *completely* agree. My state, in it's infinite wisdom, has just recriminilized pot after 35 years of legal possession of under 4 oz.

If I read it right they managed to lump meth-use and pot-use in the same bill, and they've called it the "methijuana" bill.

Are you shi**ing me?? They are even close as in what it does to you...let along the addiction isn't even the same! Lame a$$ govt I swear. Do you happen to have a link about it...I know some others that would be interested in knowing about this.

Legalize it, regulate it, tax it.

I think a lot more harm comes from the "war on drugs" than from drugs themselves.
