    @ConserveUSA well Ive had some bizzar experiences with California folk and its all off beat and totally society as a whole! For some odd reason , some people literally believe marijuana is good for you. But those heavy pot smokers have no employment and leech off others. It only makes sense to them

    Then what is the Republican excuse for outrageous spending on unnecessary wars? Toe tapping under toilet stalls?

    I know 90 year old lady who uses a cannabis balm for arthritis pain relief. It's also available in a variety of drinks and edibles which is the likely future of medical marijuana. Of course inhaling smoke is harmful, from cigarettes, reefers, smog, or a BBQ, which is why lots of doctors see value in cannabis for treating sundry diseases/symptoms, but can't recommend it being smoked. For those who have a need for a mood-adjusting recreational drug, pot is less harmful to the user and produces miniscule collateral damage compared to alcohol.

    in my state is is nothing new for those in office to go around federal laws. seems to me they pick and choose which laws to enforce or even obey themselves. then again the feds do the same thing. makes me wonder why any bother with an oath.

    @marine1

    Dude, I honestly don't know. The "research" changes from day to day.

    I've never smoked it and never will, legal or not, but it would be nice to have the facts about it without being concerned that on whether or not it's bias.

    The studies on lung cancer rates for post smokers shows a far less risk. most likely due to the fact that they don't smoke a joint every twenty minutes...@marine1

    @woodtick57.... There was a study done at one time that hinted that smoking pot helps clear the lungs of the tars from cigg's... But if you look at the difference between pot and tobacco it makes sense as being much safer and actually reversing the effects of tobacco smoking... Tobacco produces non water soluble tars just as pot does by the Pot Tars are THC residuals which the body breaks down quickly and are metabolized as they travel to receptors in the brain.... Tobacco Tars are not metabolized for use by the body except for the nicotine molecule... They do get absorbed some and do break down over time but they tend to remain in the lungs for much, much longer...

    So it would make sense that if you smoked pot that it would be soluble with the tar from cigg smoke and help clear it from the lungs as the assorted THC and CBN tars are metabolized .....

    Raw Marijuana is deleterious to young people and all people's health. The inhalation of potent harsh dense burning gases create havoc on the fragile tissue of the human lungs. Bacterial clearance is hindered, and will exacerbate existing Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and irreparably damage the heart lungs liver,and pollute your metabolism.

    PEOPLE ON THE COAST SEEM TO FORGET IT KILLS BRAIN CELLS, IT IS A GATEWAY DRUG, AND SOME RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT IT CAN CAUSE PAINIC ATTACKS AS WELL AS IT CAN CAUSE CANCER QUICKER THAN A REGULAR CIGG WOULD.It is ok for terminal ill cancer patients but that is it. I WISH THE REST OF AMERICA COULD BREAK OFF FROM CALIFORNIA. I WISH THEY WOULD BECOME PART OF CANADA. THEY ARE THE REASON THIS COUNTRY IS GOING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET!

    Everything you stated is NOT TRUE. Please do some real research on this before stating lies. Also this site has a rule of showing PROOF of your claims with sources. None of which you have done.

    Seems you've eaten the propaganda with a power shovel. Cannabis does NOT kill brain cells (BTW, alcohol DOES). It also does not cause cancer. Matter of fact, cannabinoids can actually inhibit the growth of cancerous cells. Paranoia can be a side effect, not "panic attacks".

    Mari is a herb used to cure people. Some use it for recreational purposes. It's like smoking a cigarette(which is worse the the way) & also like drinking alcohol, also bad for you. You can not over dose on weed BUT you can overdose on alcohol and get cancer from cigs. It just doesn't make sense to me as to why it's illegal.

    Such a knee jerk issue between the Fed, State, and Public opinion to actually create law in more anesthesia for the masses.
    I'll bet the Pharmaceutical conglomerates and R.J. Reynolds are holding hands in the lobby bathroom....

    I use to think marijuana should be legalized so that it could be taxed. However, over the summer I visited LA and while at Venice Beach the stench of pot was so bad that my grand kids and I had to leave the beach. It's a shame that one cannot take children to Venice Beach anymore.

    I spent much of my childhood in Hawaii. It's always been accepted there. Up an ounce was a $25 fine, though any arrest for simple possession was rare.
    I remember a couple of detectives coming to serve a warrant on me. My lanai was full of plants. They kicked a couple over while cuffing me, but never charged me or even mentioned the marijuana plants.

    It's against the law. Funny the way it is that many people who like to get high pay no attention to the death and destruction their law breaking supports in the U.S. and abroad. Everyday people are killed to supply the illegal drugs that Americans so enjoy. If you're in favor of legalized weed then by all means campaign for it. Until it becomes legal admit you are a criminal and that there is blood on your hands.

    If your concern is the carnage the drug trade causes abroad, then you should have no problem with folks here growing their own weed. Regarding your indignation over criminals with blood on their hands, you must be outraged over those who aid and abet drug lords in laundering BILLIONS, yet are let off with a relatively small fine. This coddling of corporate criminals making blood money off the drug trade reveals the War on Drugs to be a fraud.

    @RoyFloyd That's not my only concern but it is one of them. I don't have a problem with stoners anymore than I do with drinkers. If they don't drive or come to work stoned then toke up. Most dope users I know are not worried about the damage their habit causes to others here or abroad they just want to get high. I certainly agree the war on drugs is a fraud just as much as the war on poverty has been. The fact the government refuses to secure the border but spends millions arresting incarcerating and harassing Americans rather than increasing our presence there is proof. Truth is I believe it's big business on both the legal and illegal side that prevents any real change. The government needs enemies to maintain military and law enforcement spending. That being said and since I do agree with you I think you should also be able to see my position. I'm all for activism and civil disobedience to prove a point and bring about change but is that really what most users are doing? As the man said in No Country for Old Men, "There would be no drug sellers if there were no drug users." That is the bottom line for me.
