I think that many of us are in favor of legalizing medical marijuana, so my question isn't about that. How would full legalization work? Are you okay with people getting high in front of their kids? How about smoking in the home, where the house stinks or the kids may get some secondhand smoke? Is it okay for people to be around their kids when they are high? I'm not talking about just a mild "buzz" - I'm talking about getting stoned stupid where they can't follow a conversation or finish a thought.
Please try to keep on subject and not change this into, "well, people drink...". Most of us agree that people shouldn't be drunk around their kids.
Is it realistic to think that if it is legalized, people will be discreet?
Use and abuse are 2 vastly different things. The same rules that currently apply to cigarettes and alcohol could be instituted. Do we ban alcohol or cigs in homes where minor children live? Is it against the law to be drunk in your own home, if your children are safely in bed?
If people can be responsible with other mood altering or toxic substances, I am sure MJ would be no different.

Nicolia- It seems every time it's put on the ballot, people become puritans. I've never been a pot smoker, but I'm not afraid that legalizing the drug, would cause rampant hard core drug use or a sharp rise in crime. From a purely economic view, I think legalizing MJ could be very lucrative-
