  • I don't care. If it is going to bring in more revenue to help pay off some this obnoxious debt BO has gotten us into, then great. Otherwise, I really don't care. If potheads want it legal, then fine.

  • tn, your reference to cheech and chong only tells us how outdated and sterotyping your info on the plant is.

  • You know, even if I did smoke pot I wouldn't waste my money on it. These are hard times not pot times.

  • Older - It's not sterotyping. The plant is a drug. People who smoke it are drug users. Use of hemp for cloth, lotions, shampoo, etc. is not illegal, so has nothing to do with this post.

  • angel, the plant is a gift from nature and God, as natural as they come, people who use it are smarter than the alcoholics who destroy their lives and the lives of others in the process, and also the users of prescription drugs which is more wildly abused than illegal drugs.
    This post is about why pot was made illegal.

  • I guess I would worry about pot smoking becauise of the driving situation. It is about the same as driving after a few drinks. I wouldn't smoke pot even if it was legal because I appreciate reality and don't need to feel all fuzzy and laid back. I am just fine,thank you. Pot smokers are the only ones who want it to be legal and keep saying it is safer that cigarettes. HA. Denial. It took me so many years to quit smoking regular cigarettes...why would I want to start smoking pot? LOL. I am not that self destructive.
