So there's like 18 states following the lead of Cali and wa ... The decriminalization passed a few days ago in md .... Mj would be sold in shops and taxed 50.00 per oz and the tax money will go to rehab services in the state ... I want your thoughts. Mine are that if drinking is legal so should mj. I have never known a person become violent from this drug . Prohibition didn't work out too well before and it's happening again. I don't think you should have one without the other. Furthermore if they can provide more services to people addicted to crack trying to get clean and off the streets to me it doesn't feel like a bad thing. I think the age should be 21 and not 18 just like alcohol

I am 100% for legalization. I hope the they figure it out on the federal level eventually.

And Cali is only legal for medical. WA and CO just voted to legalize.

I'm for it. I think legalizing it will actually HELP our country. After all- it's not like making it illegal has kept it off the streets or prevented anyone from doing it. At all.

That's my thing too! Our economy is already hurting sooo much and it could help a lot of states. Obama stated its not really a concern. And also it could create more jobs for people.

I completely agree. Our war on drugs has failed miserably.

Legalizing it and regulating it will make it safer, take a big source of profits from gangs/drug cartels and will generate lots of revenue that a lot of our states desperately need.

As well as creating jobs (while at the same time taking them away from gangs/drug cartels).

If they enforced bank regulations like they do park rules, we wouldn't be in this mess

I live in MD and support the legalization. I may be in the minority with my additional thinking but I feel all drugs should be legalized, like in Portugal. Abusers should be in treatment programs not in jail where they can probably get a variety of drugs. Solve the problem don't perpetuate it. For the record I've never used an illegal drug.
