Why doesn't the US just legalize marajuana and stop this whole drug war thing

Report as

because the big fat cats in washington,would'nt be able to pocket all the money.....nor would the insurance companies! and they'd rather see people unhealthy and in pain,while they have excellent access to any type of medical care....at their disposal.....! i agree with you...i'm all for it. but unfortunately....they're the ones that have to put it into effect....even though we're the ones who supposedly vote on implementing everything...! just keep your fingers crossed,pal!!!....eventually.....we will prevail.....only a matter of time!!!

Pot isn't good for you and it's stupid to do it just because some other idiots are doing it and you wanna be cool. It isn't cool, they just think it is and so they are stupid. Doesn't it matter to y'all that it kills you? Like don't you realize that before you do it instead of making everyone else suffer when you die later on? Or do you think dying is cool to?

I would love to see evidence to back that up.

Does anyone else find these statements (?) confusing?

Mine or hers? Mine was saying I would love to see her try to find evidence to support it, if that was what needed clarification.

OMG! It's WAY less dangerous than alcohol, or cigarettes which are loaded with chemicals!
Those things are perfectly legal! Why? Because corporations can make money off them.

Marijuana isn't about being cool. It's about personal choice!

Don't smoke it and you are fine! I put it on my sandwiches or in the spaghetti sauce. Basil and cilantro eat your heart out. No man can tell me I can't have as much of a tasty plant as I want. Opium poppies and coca leaves are good too. Just don't refine them. They are already perfect!

I agree that marijuana is stupid but also a personal choice, marijuana does not affect you really in any way except for making you hungry, sleepy, and giving you a good buzz. And the government won't make it legal because they have no way of taxing something you can grow yourself.

Because many Americans are very set on the idea of it being wrong. A large enough percentage to legalize it won't be found for a while.

Polls say 70% support it, but it's not a high enough priority for most people to vote over
Report as
Precisely. I don't know why people won't just go vote.

Marijuana does not have the same effect as drugs such as cocaine and meth. As a matter of fact, deaths caused by marijuana are very rare. Aside from drug cartels killing, but they only exist because it's illegal.

Marijuana isn't a drug, it's a plant. 70% of adults support legalization. It has many great medicinal uses. Alcohol and cigarettes are far more dangerous to society.

Good point Necro.
But, mama, cocaine, alcohol, and heroin are all really plants too. I am not saying I don't get what you are saying, I am just saying, marijuana has a chemical in it that effects the brain. Just like any other chemical that effects the brain....

No man can tell me not to enjoy a plant. I understand not refining it. I put it on my sandwhich or in the spaghetti sauce. Opium poppies and coca leaves are good too. Whoever thinks they can control these natural candies is in for a world of hurt when me and mine are in power. Money will be destroyed as well. Useless joke played on the unsuspecting will be made right...

Because this is not indeed a free country. I can't even swim in the local river if I want to. Why not? We don't have the choices we deserve to have. Legalizing it wouldn't force people to smoke it, just like legalizing (or keeping legal at this point) abortions isn't forcing women to have them. But you make it ILLEGAL and it's just a personal attack on individuals' freedoms. And becomes a game for politicians and now insurance companies and corporations (all the same to me) to rule with two faces and pockets too deep for my liking.
Good question tho, I don't know why it hasn't been yet. I mean enough already. What is everyone so afraid of? And the wars are just no good.
The only one good reason that has ever been given to me was by a friend who said that marijuana (bc it makes people's reaction time slower or something) smokers had damaged property of his and never paid for it. My answer could only be that some people are just not responsible enough to use certain substances wisely. Until then, which I do not see happening soon, unfortunately, that may be the only reason I see for not legalizing it. BUT THEN ALCOHOL SHOULD BE ILLEGAL AS WELL. I mean how much sense does it make to have a legal chemical that is commonplace to drink away from home, then HAVE to drive. How many DIE in drunk driving accidents a year? So....idk
sorry for long answer :P

Glad to see you STF, all I can do is Green Thumb your fine answer. (And I do think marijuana is harmful, it is just so obvious that the present way works so badly.)
