    More revenue less guns into Mexico.

    Idea! Prohibition doesnít work Legalize pot. A few things will take place.

    1) Tax on pot, more revenue less dept.

    2) Cartels will not have the need for the pot business

    3) Less for illegal need for firearms.

    I know the would still produce and bring in heroin and meth


    And I don't like POT.

    I have never thought that marijuana should be illegal.

    I've never used it, nor do I care to, but over the years I have had several friends who have. Not one of them has committed any other crimes, nor done anything stupid or reckless because of it. The same cannot be said of alcohol. Alcohol is far more dangerous.

    I feel that it should be treated similar to alcohol. There should be certain things that one cannot do while under the influence (i.e. drive), but possession and use themselves should be legal. Additionally, it should be taxed similar to alcohol, creating ore revenue for the states, and less for the criminal elements.

    Just my $0.02

    They should legalize them all, the ones who want it are and will get it either way so why should we spend billions fighting an un winnable war and lose countless officers doing it.

    The only reason the drug administration still want to fight it is because they would lose the billions in funding every year. Oh and their job.

    Sadly, I believe you're correct.

    The "war on drugs" is a failed scam.

    If you're gonna post a "pro-pot" comment you should have somebody check the grammar first so it doesn't look like you were high when you did it!

    I'm a firm believer in legalization simply because it will save a ton out of the budget directly (drug "war") and indirectly in court/police costs for investigating/prosecuting/jailing offenders. In the end I think it would have a minimal effect on most of our day-to-day lives. I'd still be randomly drug tested at my job, I can't show up for work drunk so there is no reason the company couldn't put a prohibition on using drugs as a condition to working there.

    Plus, if we regulate and tax the hell out of it, the drugs available to the end-user would overall be of higher quality (=less dangerous) and lower price.

    However I think we all know this will never happen because "someone needs to think of the children"

    Before any of that can happen, they (LE agencies) need to develop a test for impairment. Currently there is none. Colorado is working on, or has passed a "Impairment Level" that is stupid low and inaccurate. READ - If you smoked/consumed TCH in the last month, you will show positive and will be charged with DUI/under the influence whereas the actual affects of one "dose" (choose your delivery method and qty) wears off in a few hours, just like a drink.

    And I am not so sure we suddenly want to legalize all the Mexican Cartels into mega corporations like Phillip Morris, and RJ Reynolds. Huge can o' worms there.

    IMO that border needs to be sealed shut regardless, including no importation.

    Why should society spend billions having to take care of the children of drug addicts?

    I don't think that there is as many as you think. Better them than the millions of illegals we are currently supporting.
