i agree that pot should not be legalized but i also have an extremist view too... i think that all the nuts out there that are stupid enough to smoke and get caught should just be "removed" from society and i dont mean by jailtime. I mean by permanently removing these sick bastards they're just leaches on society and bring everybody down. if cops just eliminated them on spot, the world would be a much better place.... these sickos sell drugs to little 4 and 5 year olds.... what are we supposed to do? let the future generation grow up on weed?
Wow, quite a harsh thing to say. Who do you mean by sickos? Absolutely everybody who has smoked weed before? Everybody would sell it to a 4-year-old? So everybody who consumes alcohol or smokes cigarettes would urge any toddler to do it as well?
I'm sure nobody in this thread who wants cannabis to be legal would like to see children consuming it just like nobody would want a 4-year-old watch a horror movie.
And another thing, most people I know who smoke weed are quite intelligent people (many of them successful artists), who are surely not addicted to it, they just enjoy it like the occasional drink.
If you wanted all people that smoke weed removed from society I bet half of Hollywood would disappear.

I say why not let all of it be legal, as long as they're doing it in their own homes and not hurting anybody?
Exactly my thoughts.

thats like saying child molestation is ok as long as people do it in there own home and the kid is brainwashed into believing it as ok too.... your whole view is seriously jaded
Kari said as long as it's not hurting anybody it would be okay. Now, if you can explain how child molestation isn't hurting anybody your argument would make sense.

And I agree with Pammy. People will do it anyway, whether it's legal or not.

I think it should be legalised. I don't think it's that bad.

I have tried Pot and doubtless i'll do it again. but it's on my consciene.

I know a boy that is literally a pot head. I think he is stoned...all the time. But he is dating my best friend and is the nicest boy. I've known him for a very long time and he is not a nasty person.

Also I don't actually think that pot has ever killed anyone. By just smoking pot I hardly think you can overdose. I may be wrong.

where are you getting underground workplace? i meant that they are put down, euthanized, get the picture? lol...

You're right.  Pot is extremely dangerous and anyone who does it just must be a waste of human life.  I think that anything dangerous should be eliminated and anyone who participates in said dangerous activity should also be exterminated.  But wait, 'danger' is a subjective concept.  Poi Pot, the ex-dictator of Cambodia believes that intellectuals were dangerous.  He murdered countless teachers, scholars, anyone with any degree of formal education.  I suppose that isn't too bad.  You'll be safe at least.

And half of the people at our school. On the subject of celebs, though, i saw pictures of aaron carter smoking pot in some magazine. ... anyway, though, i don't really know. I mean, i see the pros of it being legalized, but i also see the cons. and i'm not really sure which one wins.

So we should kill them? That's...harsh.

I have to agree with Kari, as long as they are doing it in their homes, who cares?

Personally i think it should be legallised. I mean come one, if people want to smoke it they will wether its legal or not, im 15 and i know 6 Drug dealers only a few years older than me, and guess what? They're not complete Toss heads and stoners, they're all working or at college and im being honest when i say they're all doing really well for themselves.

Wow . . . where I live, there is a drug dealer or a boot legger every other house up every holler. LOL. That sounded really hickish, but it's the truth.

yeah, it is. and they don't try to hide it either. You see them pulling in and out at all hours of the night... and you see people out in the middle of the hollers handing out drugs... they just wave and smile. lol  trying to be all secretive. ... it's kind of obvious when you see one guy hand him money, and the money recipient handing the payer a ziplock baggy full of white stuff. ...

True, true. LOL. I don't even think the policemen really care, though, so why would they act any differently?

I really don't know why Pot is illegal.
If it was legal, it would be easier for the government to control, therefore safer.
Shops would be able to sell it openly, creating a competitive market bringing the price of pot down (possibly bringing crime levels down with it)
It might actually make the numbers of people who smoke pot less ( i know of people who smoke it just because they "shouldn't)
I also believe it should be the individuals choice, not the governments.
Plus the government would get a huge amount in VAT

A good friend of mine had a drug problem, a bad one. She got help, she turned her life around and now she's going to study human rights law because she wants to help others. She never sold drugs to anyone, never gave drugs to kids. Now you would rather have murdered her because you didn't agree with what she was doing? That's very tolerant and caring. You have to give people a chance.

Hehe, Ghey, that was a priceless response.
Really, I thought: I'm not going to reply to that, it's just too absurd... But that's what I should've said.

So what you're saying is "Shoot the Bastards"? Right?

That's some what harsh, is it not. I know plently of people that smoke pot. It does not however mean that they are 'leeches on society'.

Two out of three of my brothers were (if not still are) smoking pot a lot. But they still managed to hold down a job. It doesn't mean that they were bad people. They wouldn't give it to young children.

Only because someone is a dealer or just smokes pot does not mean that they don't have morals on what is right not wrong.

I think pot is in the same ballpark as alcohol. It's bad for you, can be tolerable is reasonable doses, and can get you in a lot of trouble if you too much of, at the wrong time, in the wrong place. Whether or not it's legalized won't have much of an effect on any of those things. I think I agree with whoever said it should have a fine - it's silly to pot smokers behind bars, for however short a time, when what they're doing is comparably harmless. It messes up your own head, but not that much honestly, and drinking is much worse. That said, I hate all forms of smoking, all the time, legal or illegal. If the US government's okay with regular cigarettes - again, same ballpark, probably the worst of the bunch - they should let marajuana go in the same category.

EDIT: Yes, I realize how hypocritical that sounds, given my avatar - it's true, I swear. (I just think it's a hot picture.)

That's not really that hypocritical . . . and I totally agree with it.

I think pot should be decriminalized but not legalized. I just think it's way harsh to throw someone in jail for smoking/carrying pot. If you think about it, it's just a plant that kills a couple brain cells and affects your lungs a bit. I don't think it's that big a deal. Cigarettes are so much worse. I've had this discussion so many times. But there you go, that's my oppinion.
