While we're talking "touchy"

Where does everyone stand on the legalization or decriminalization of marijuana? Im curious to know how responsible moms feel about its legalization. If no more states legalize it what will you teach your kids about it?

the environmental impact would be a good thing. Hemp yeilds fuell, paper, clothing, a great number of useful things. you need to do some research on the environmental end of things. ITs a wonderful medicine and doesnt make people crazy. Alcohol makes people do things they wouldnt normally do, too. Half my family smokes weed, most of the others are alcoholics. Guess which ones are healthier both mentally and physically?

Quoting LucyHarper:

It has a high environmental impact and making it more available will increase the number of people who use it and people will be less careful about how they use it, it no longer will be an at home thing, it will be people walking down the street, it impacts judgement and makes people do things the wouldn't normally do. 

Quoting IansMommy2012:

So why against it? I'm just curious :)

Quoting LucyHarper:

I'm against legalizing it, and before someone tries to start with me, I'm not arguing about this. I teach my kids the dangers of it, it's chemical composition, and the effects it has on the body and the environment. I am willing to answer any reasonable questions.

I think it should be legalized. It isn't only useful as a drug. There are many things it can be used for and is more sustainable than the ways we are currently making things. Take paper for instance, we currently use trees which don't mature for over 20 years. We could use mj which matures in a few months.

IMO, if alcohol is legal, mj should be too. It is less dangerous, people don't go out and fight and act like an idiot when smoking. They don't go out and crash their cars and kill people. If I had to pick one I'd say legalize mj and make alcohol illegal. Since that's not gonna happen, I say it should be decriminalized and legal to possess and grow enough for personal use.

I don't smoke, I have before, it's not some horrible drug, it's not a 'gate way' drug. IMO when they teach DARE in school they are telling kids that mj is as bad as coke or herion, then when kids try mj they see it's not that bad so they assume the others must not be either. The DARE program lied to them....

Are you against the medical use for it?

I do smoke. In a responsible way. It keeps me off way worse meds. It helps me keep weight on & from having anxiety. It should at least be medicinally legalized everywhere. I think that it's fine recreationally, better than booze. It ought to be taxed and the revenue given to fix our schools & ease the burden off the middle class

What makes it a drug though? It is also a medicine. It has been used as a medicine much more than it has been used as a drug. 


Quoting Anonymous:

Because it's a drug



Quoting priceless3238:

Can you answer my other question also. Why is marijuana not okay? 



Quoting Anonymous:

I hate alcohol too





Quoting priceless3238:

Is alcohol okay?

What makes marijuana not okay ?




Quoting Anonymous:

You know perfectly well what those drugs do. Just because weed doesn't do what those other drugs doesn't make it ok.







Quoting StevieMarie:

How do you feel about it versus like cocaine and meth?





Quoting Anonymous:

No way! I have a zero tolerance for drugs.

I think it should be 100% legal. I would teach my kids the same way like cigarettes and alcohol, not until you're an adult.
