  • Yes, with all the other problems we have right now. They should tax it, it is already in the hands of so many kids and they don't seem to be able to control anything and keep it off the streets. We have much bigger fish to fry and I feel what anyone over 18 does doesn't bother me unless it involves me. Let em smoke and use the money for programs like medicare and social security. Most states have their own healthcare we don't even need to include everyone, the governement needs to step back and let the states run themselves.

  • I have never smoked or done any other illegal drug. I think the tax revenue it would collect would be great. With appropriate labeling, warnings and age limit for purchase, it wouldn't be any worse than alcohol. At Minimum it should be legalized for medical purposes. The problem would be elimination of the street sellers/growers. People would still go there first because it would be cheaper. So even if it was legalized it would still be years of busting and jailing before it made/saved any money on a gov. level. Just making it legal to grow hinders the small chance of keeping it out of the hands of youth(they will get it any way but why make it simple) Then workers comp. You drug test to get your claim. Is there a way of knowing if they were high on the job or if they did it over the weekend? Alcohol had breath test. (I don't know just wanted to bring it up) There is just a lot of variables to it.

  • No! It is so stupid this is even a question. Have you not seen what pot use does to a brain? And you want to make it legal so that people can smoke it and just go about their day, why don't we just legalize drinking and driving while we are at it.?!
