Should marijuana be legalised?

As the topic states, should marijuana be legalised?

At least mention what country you're talking about, I'll assume you're talking about the United States so here we go. I'm a liberal, so I believe marijuana should be legalized but only through a doctor prescription. Drug dealing should still be illegal for obvious reasons, but some of the same rules should apply (do not drive intoxicated, do not go to school/work intoxicated, etc). When I went to San Francisco, some of the cops didn't give a sh*t when they saw someone on the busy urban sidewalks smoking a blunt. That must be an explanation of why it's the most liberal city in America and perhaps the Western hemisphere too.

Legalize it and tax it. That helps fix the national debt, as well as shutting up those damn activists.

 

Might as well do the same thing with prostitution too.

Oh, I was about to say the same thing but I forgot. TAX IT! And forget prostitution, I just watched COPS today and it took place in Nashville, all the prostitutes were hillybilly trash and in Los Angeles it was a bunch of people who didn't even know how to speak English. Why not do prostitution in Mexico if it's legal over there?

I think it should, but I'm pretty sure this has been already discussed in the Debates & Discussion section.

Anyways it should but there should be certain restrictions, like:

  • You can't drive and smoke Marijuana.
  • You cannot smoke Marijuana in public places.
  • It has to have a tax.
I'm not really feeling creative at the moment, so I just came up with those three. Any more ideas?

 

@fireguy

Prostitution? No way. The reason why is because there would be too much exploitation of women and stuff. Women would be kidnapped or a abused or sold (more frequently, but that's another matter to discuss). It would result in chaos and I just think it's a definite no in my opinion. I know that what you choose to do with your body is your business, but there are limits to it (I believe).

I'd like to at least see the laws put down a notch.

(I live in QLD, and the laws are the toughest out of our 6 states)

 

Legalization?

Sure, I'd vote for it.

I'd have some tight rules on it, but legalize it.

Yep.

 

I mean, it's harder for me to get alcohol than it is to get weed.

Legalize it, and make it hard for children to get like alcohol is.

 

Did I say legalize it?

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I also keep a close eye on USA, because it seems out gov sucks their cock.

They do something, we do something.

 

So, I hope USA legalizes it, or gets into a massive debt, and taxes it like they did with alcohol.

Oh god another one of these ignorant fellas.

 

Listen up, Marijuana is perfectly harmless itself. It's a plant for god's sake. Now, I understand that it gets you 'high' and when you are 'high' (from what I've heard) you loose (some) control of yourself. Kind of like being drunk. Therefore people think that it kills neutrons or whatever. It doesn't, in fact I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere it could result in a positive way towards the brain and it's neutrons and cells and whatever makes it work.

Cannabis itself is not addictive, but of course people react differently towards different substances therefore sometimes what people do is go on harder drugs, that is the problem. Marijuana is known for opening the gate towards harder drugs, those are which you should definitely avoid.

No, marijuana does not create any type of cancer (that I know of, at least that's what Warlord said once.)

 

I'm 14, don't go thinking that I smoke it because I don't, nor I plan to smoke it or any other thing. I want to keep clean forever biggrin.gif

 

But I do accept other people's choices and I'm fine with it.

In fact what I think should be illegal is Cigarettes. They're stupid, they make your teeth yellow, give you cancer, kill you, I just think it's god damn stupid to do something as useless as smoking a cigarette. If you wanna smoke something, cannabis it should be smile.gif

Marijuana is a drug... so is Tyenol, Advil, and many other 'drugs'. Next time, try to clear up what you're saying. icon14.gif

 

Also, yes, I think Marijuana should be legalized.

If you smoked 20 bags of weed, you'll go to sleep, wake up 4 hours later and eat everything in your fridge.

 

If you take 20 aspirin, it will be your LAST headache.

No i will never take 20 aspirin... (im not so crazy)

But an "add" man can take MORE or less than 20 bags of weed

 

But the result should be almost the same, as your brain wont work in any way even dead or "mentally" dead.

i hate them Mary Jane Smokers in my school that say:

Dude:Do You know why the Gov doesn't legalize Mary Jane?

Me:Why?

Dude:Because they can't put Taxes on it,LOLOL Weed for Eva!

 

Well in my opinion Smoking Mary Jane to help the Stress its acceptable for me

but getting addicted to it where you feel like You NEED one every damn time

then you need help,i think if you do Most of the things in a Moderate Ratio it is ok.

but they should put taxes on it if they legalize it.

i have not Smoked Mary Jane yet,and i can't judge it completely unless i try it.

 

Final Answer:

Maybe

I say legalize it with the same rules and laws as alcohol.

Weed vs alcohol

 

Weed-get hungry, eat a loaf of bread and drink a liter of cola.

Alcohol- get drunk piss yourself

----------------------------------------

Weed-get hungry, eat 2 bags of chips and drink a liter of Gatorade.

alcohol- get drunk and make a fool out of yourself stumbling around everywhere.

------------------------------------------

Weed-get hungry, eat an extra large pizza and drink 2 liters of iced tea and play video games all night.

alcohol- get drunk and pass out the wrong way, barf and choke to death.

 

When you compare Marijuana to legal drugs like alcohol, the long and short term affects are alot less harmful with Weed, for example Weed doesn't destroy your liver or cause a hangover.

Yes to legalizing pot, and prostitution.

 

Prostitution is currently the underhanded business that it is because it lacks federal regulation. If it is made legal these women will have access to regular health screening and protection (rather then exploitation) by police.

 

Penn and Teller actually did a good episode on this during their first season of Bullsh*t! on Showtime. They featured a legal whore house in Nevada. All the girls were regularly tested and well paid. No pimps, no abuse. All of them wanted to be there. Hell I'd have sex for money too.

 

Getting back to weed, much of the above applies to the drug trade as well. If its legal its subject to government protection. It becomes safe... from a business stand point. Also becomes taxed.

I'm also one of the 10%. I have a beer or two if I decide to drink and that's it. Or a shot or two.

 

And I don't think weed will ever be legalized. It would most likely give people less reason to get certain prescription drugs at a higher cost. Pain killers? Nah, lets just go buy some weed. Depression medication? Nah. Hunger medication? Nah. You know what I'm saying.
