Okay, legalizing marijuana yes or no?

Yes? or No? And give me your ONE BEST reason for your vote?

I say no, for increased DUI's. To me keeping as many impaired drivers off the street is more important than the revenue the state would get by legally taxing it.

  • Yes for medical purposes.

  • Yes, for many reasons, but best reason is for medical purposes. My mom suffered with MS for years and years, this may have helped her.

  • Yes. I would rather hang with a Stoner than an Alcoholic.

  • Oh I guess I should have mentioned it is already legal here in CA for medical purposes. I'm fine with that.

  • oh man thats a toughy. I have always beleive NO, but lately I have been leaning towards yes. I think it could possibily help our economy. Same rules as beer. you cant do it in public. you have to be 21 to buy. If we had a device to show if you have been DUI. I dont know... Im still up in the air about it... I think as of now though Im still going with No. LOL Im usually never indecisive about these things.

  • YES, People are smoking it now! It could be regulated and taxed. One of the reasons it hasn't been legalized is due the fact that you can't do a breathalizer like alcohol. You can tell if someone has used it but not when.

    Obviously you don't live in MN where everyone seems to have at least one DUI and a lot have two to four. I think alcohol is way worse than weed, it makes people violent, and irrational, weed just makes you a little stupid. I don't however condone overuse of anything, nor do I condone driving while under the influence either.

  • if it is used for medical reasons than it should be sold with the rest of the other drugs. A drug store not a green house that are popping out all over Colorado.

  • I think it's ridiculous for marijuana to be illegal while alcohol and cigarettes are legal.

    Answer by Erin814 at 12:26 PM on Oct. 14, 2010
