If you want your opinion to be heard and want to be taken seriously, I'd suggest putting a bit more effort into your reply to avoid looking like a loose wingnut.

|Weed isn't generally a physiological addiction like heroin or alcohol. It is more psychological and more easy to cure. You only have to look at the negative affects of weed vs. alcohol to see which is the worse drug. Its no contest.|

| Yes, I think it should be legalized. Specially here in Brazil, where the drug traffic is elevated and a lot of money runs between dealer's hands inside and outside the favelas.|
The legalization would spare some innocent lives and would make our cities cleaner and less violent.

| All the stoners and weed smokers I've ever known were chill as hell people. Easy to get along with, and good guys. It not being legalized in 2012 when it's no more dangerous (if not LESS dangerous) than beer is ridiculous. As far as it being addictive, that's the users problem. Beer is worse in the addiction department and can cause far more damage than weed.|
I think ALL drugs should be legalized. I believe you should be able to put whatever you want in your own body, dangerous or not. If you're dumb enough to shoot up heroin, go for it. Drug wars and crime rates would go down to nearly nothing. But it's never going to happen. Oinkers can't very well get in the papers or get $$$ for arrests if you have no one to bust drugs for.

|hemp is more efficient for paper than trees. So the paper industry would lose if marijuana was legalized. Hemp is more efficient for clothing than cotton, nylon etc. so the textile industry would lose if marijuana was legalized. Hemp can make concrete for houses that won't rot and keep heat inside the house. Hemp can make clean, efficient fuel. Oil industry loses if pots legalized.|

|There are at least four US states which have legalised the large-scale growing of hemp for the purposes of producing raw materials from, and at least one actively growing hemp despite protestations from the DEA.|

|Also, hemp is no better for producing biofuel than any other plant; in fact, it's considerably worse than very high starch crops like wheat, switchgrass and corn.|

| to Butters: Geneticists have discovered certain genetic factors that lead people to be more prone to substance abuse/misuse/dependence. Going back all through history, people have sought out new experiences, and ways to alter perception---its a very human thing. We are sort of build to have this innate curiousity about our perceptions and we seek out ways to alter those perceptions from a very very young age. |
One could point out children spinning around in a circle until they fall down as a very simple example of how, from a very young age, we are searching our environment for ways to feel different, alter our senses.
You could examine many ancient cultures use of alcohol, and intoxicating herbs in ancient ceremonies to show that human history has always placed a certain value on shifting our perception....
Its all very human, its part of us.

| So you don't buy that human being are curious and we find ways to explore our environment searching for stimuli to alter our senses....or you do buy that but you refuse to acknowledge drugs as an example of exploring our environment?|
The spinning doesn't make kids prone to drug use...its an example of how we are curious---from a young age, about ways to feel different.
Genetic predispositions is another argument altogether.

What if, for example, someone was having a bad trip on LSD and decided to go out and stab someone, unaware of what they were doing due to the influence of the drug?* The government has a duty to protect society at large (well, depending on your view), so if they can demonstrate Event A (taking the drug) can possibly lead to Event B (having a bad reaction a drug and causing harm to someone), then they're pretty much obligated to step in and prevent Event A from occurring.
In short, it's not so much that they're looking out for what you're putting in your body, but what could happen to the others around you if you decided to do so.
What I said, though, doesn't apply to marijuana (at least in my opinion). The worst I've seen from pot smokers is they'll eat your food without asking you.
*I'm not sure what it's like to trip on LSD, so this could be a terrible example. It's also a bit extreme, but hopefully the idea I'm trying to get across is there.
[EDIT] Changed the wording slightly.
|Turians enjoy broad freedoms. So long as one completes his duties, and does not prevent others from completing theirs, nothing is forbidden. For example, there are no laws against recreational drug use, but if someone is unable to complete his duties due to drug use, his superiors step in. Judicial proceedings are "interventions". Peers express their concern, and try to convince the offender to change. If rehabilitation fails, turians have no qualms about sentencing dangerous individuals to life at hard labor for the state.|
