  • I live in California where they are enlightened regarding the use of medical cannabis. If you're over 18, a prescription from a doctor and you're good to go. Considering that pharmaceutical drugs, cigarettes and alcohol are way more dangerous, medical cannabis seems to be gaining more and more acceptance. Now all they need to do is establish a tax and it can help us out of our state's fiscal crisis!

  • Legalize it. Period. Then tax the crap out of it. :)

    Here's what confuses me: cigarettes, which are known to cause cancer, are legal. (No I'm not getting on a soapbox here; I smoked for 12 years). However marijuana, although not a cure, has proven beneficial to cancer patients, is not legal. So you can buy and smoke what gives you the disease but not what helps you ease the trauma of it. Could it be that chemo and radiation make more money for the medical profession? Hmmm.

  • I agree with it's use. I am on the fence about legalizing it for recreational use. I know the agruements for and against but I also believe that just because it may not be as hazardous or dangerous as cigarettes and alcohol that it should be legal. On the other hand, the money from taxing it would help out a lot.

    It would be nearly impossible to tax. Or at least collect. But it should be legal. Its not nearly as bad as alcohol. And tobacco was the foundation of the colonies.

  • I think if it's for medical reasons, then it should be administered in a more medically responsible way than a "joint," that's extremely bad for the lungs.

    If they can put it in brownies, then they can put it in a pharmaceutical controlled pill form - or something of the kind.
