Prohibition does not prevent cannabis use by children or the mentally ill, the vulnerable populations whom we supposedly want to protect. Instead, cannabis prohibition makes it more difficult for parents, patients, society, doctors and law enforcement to control cannabis use.

The Drug War makes honest education about cannabis impossible, and leaves cannabis users marginalized in ways that make their lives more stressful.
This stress is unhealthy for everyone, but it is certainly most damaging to people with schizophrenia.

Cannabis prohibition is not merely a failure; it is a counterproductive fraud that is harming those whom we claim we want to protect.
There are currently more teens in treatment centers for marijuana in comparison to those admitted for alcohol.
Only an idiot would have to ask why alcohol is not the no#1 problem
after all alcohol is perfectly legal ( If you are 21.)
That is due to responsible people handling alcohol by way of the carding and id system.

Contraband markets make no age disgression.
Since the crackdown on tobacco there are 75% fewer teens trying or using tobacco.
However when it comes to cannabis and other illicit substances it’s a whole
other ball game.
Control, regulation and better education work prohibition, dose not.
Or as John Walters of the ondcp (Office for national drug control policy) calls it “ a war on drugs” (Sorry John but it’s true look at the Netherlands)

America loves a war even if it is on it’s own people.

One of several reason they don’t legalize drugs is not because of the harm of drugs,
But people would lose more money in the long run.
Some of the people behind the support of this irrational so called war are
The tobacco industry,
the alcohol and distilled spirit industry ( people simply don’t drink as much, or decide not to drink at all with cannabis meaning a decline in there sales.
The pharmaceutical corporations can not make money on whole or raw cannabis, but they can charge an arm and a leg for there synthetic Marinol (dronabinol) CIII.

The textile and paper industry would lose out from hemp production, sinse hemp dose not need to go through all the various processes that ordinary tree products would. Also it’s possible to get two harvest in one season.

However people don’t know the difference between industrial hemp and smokeable cannabis, yet they are able to distinguish between the two in other country’s like Germany, the UK , Netherlands and even Canada, but our `DEA agents are so dumb they cant tell the difference between a stalk and a bush.
Also people who have any knowledge of growing high quality cannabis will tell you that male plants should never be grown next to your high grade female plants,
(unless of course you want to pollinate for future seed production).
When it comes to farming hemp the males are left in tact to pollinate the females and produce as much seed as possible.

This would mean a seedy mess for the pot smoker to clean up and produce undesirable future generations of smokeable cannabis.

If anything, Hemp farming would be anti marijuana and would harm any outdoor pot farming within a one mile radius of any hemp farm.

The petroleum industry would also be affected, sinse almost everything that can be made from petroleum can be synthesized from hemp oil, everything from bio fuel to even plastics. If North America would use a third of it’s land for hemp production we could create enough bio fuel to supply an area the size of Canada.

Now also for a moment consider how many people are incarcerated over just cannabis who are currently in the prisons and jails.
If cannabis were legalized and all inmates serving time for cannabis were freed there would be an over abundance of empty cells, and millions of guards in this country would be no longer needed.
The prison building industry would almost be obsolete ( and if all drugs were legalized that would mean even more empty cells).

So the prison system must have some means of gaining more inmates.
Not to mention other areas such as treatment centers, probation.etc
or HIDTA high intensity drug traffic areas where money is fed in to law enforcement,
(they would miss there green $$$)

Drugs , not even alcohol are the cause of the fundamental ills of society, rather than checking people for the presence of drugs, they should first test people for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.

    I can see legalization for medical use, but that is it.

  3. Me says:

    They already are legal. If you can’t smoke weed in public, sniff on a bottle of nail polish

  4. Eric says:

    You say drugs. That’s an awfully generalized word to be using there. Methamphetamine, cocaine, heroine. You wish to legalize and regulate these? They were at one time. Nothing good came of it. They are powerfully addictive and socially and economically, useless products.

  5. mia2kl2002 says:

    I seriously doubt if anybody will actually READ your entire “question” which isn’t a question at all

    Just because some people choose to disregard the law does not make it reasonable to cancel the law.

    Legalizing anything does NOT decrease the use.

    People who do pot all the time have checked out of life; many students flunked out of college because of it and most of them still are failures at life.

    It is addictive… not in the same way that pain medication is, but ANYTHING that makes us feel better temporarily CAN be addictive. One of the biggest problems in our society now is that too many young people are hooked on pot. They can’t afford to pay their bills, but somehow they manage to spend big dollars on that stuff. Legalizing it would only make it easier to obtain, and then more people would be using it.

    Talk about the fastest way to become a nation of burnouts.

    Get off the potheads backs already!!!! I know a CPA that smokes every once in a while and a lot of other people who function fine on weed, but they dont sit sown and smoke their brains out either, I know people like that too and yes they have pretty much no ambition. What you really need to focus on getting off the streets are drugs that are cocaine,heroine,meth,meth labs,gang bangers,and drunk drivers, those are the ones robbing,stealing,killing and not caring about other people!!!!

  7. VermilionPhoenix says:

    Dude, I am so SICK of these “questions.”

    Stoners will come up with any idiotic reason to legalize their drugs. Once again, as far as the “medical” uses of pot go, Vicodin and Compazine do the EXACT SAME THING without making it easier for stoners to get away with having/growing pot. Drugs are illegal for a reason, end of story.

  8. true_blue_canadian_copper says:

    “drugs should be legal tell me your thoughts” with a question mark tacked on the end is not a question.

  9. pathfinder says:

    Giving free rein to crimes such as smoking weed and prostitution will only create more problems for society than it will solve. Do we really need more spaced out pot heads, or VD infected hookers causing a VD epidemic?

  10. jonesohms says:

    Freedom of choice for each free individual,
    Parents make choices as guardians of their children,
    Families and communities can help one another, sharing their knowledge to make better choices,
    no law, no force,
    no government control.
