There's a House Bill going through that will reschedule marijuana. I don't know how far it goes. As I see it, with 18 states selling medical marijuana and 2 states selling recreational marijuana, the minimum reschedule needed is that of over the counter drugs. If you keep it where you need a prescription, then recreational users are still in violation of federal laws. I'm not sure I want it in the same class as alcohol. Marijuana is a natural plant in it organic state and alcohol is pretty much derived from chemistry and manipulation.

As long as it's legal for use at home, I'm good with it.

I'd like all drugs to be legal. Not because I want to take them, that's easy now, but because it would keep from going to prison for something they decide to do to themselves. Vice crimes should have no place in an allegedly civilized country.

Never gonna happen in a Christian country. Dream on.



You mean atheist country that purports to be Christian when it's either convenient, or faced with a crisis.

Heroin selling and using is generally not punished in some countries. This is bad. I'd agree with you on most drugs, but not ones that cause unbeatable addictions and financial ruin.

If you abuse drugs you are a loser, so I don't care if they are legal or not. But I pretty much agree, alcohol is more dangerous than pot. Hypocrites and profiteers run the country.

With drugs is usually the addicts kids who pay the price. With tobacco the kids are adults with kids before they pay the price for parents being heavy smokers. But any addiction can ruin you. Family, church, sports, religion, etc!

It's not so much whether a drug is legal as it is how we handle those who use them.

Marijuana? Treat it like alcohol and cigarettes - subject it to your usual bans on smoking, whatever those may be, and keep people from using it while driving. You kill someone under the influence, you pay the price. You get caught driving under the influence? Rehab, rehab, rehab.

Frankly, if you do anything bad because of drugs, you should be sent to a rehab facility, one that actually, you know, rehabilitates rather than encourages recidivism and going back to prison so companies can make tons of profits off jailbirds. And if we want people to stop using drugs, instead of this DARE nonsense, send a bunch of people to talk about the reasons that a drug sucks that people don't think about but will directly affect people in a way that people will think, "Yeah, that would suck. I'll stick to beer/weed."
