Haha thats pretty funny, I don't really see a major problem with pot addicts but the meth, crack, coke, heroin etc... really tends to turn people into worthless piles of flesh. Thats where the funds should go.

It will be interesting to see how it all pans out. I know a pretty equal amount of people both for and against it. All of them smoke it. Personally, I agree with the sentiment that, if enough states get onboard, then the feds will have no choice but to reconsider the outright legalization of it.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Good to see some progress. I've been behind this movement for years (helped organize the Toronto Marijuana March in 1999 or so). I stopped regularly smoking it many years ago but stand behind the notion that the war on drugs is a costly and fruitless endeavour.

Of course in Canada there's a much more mellow approach to enforcement. Selling/growing large quantities is going to get you busted. But growing a little for yourself, and smoking discreetly at home or in wide open public spaces is not going to get you arrested.

My only probably with our current federal government is their harsher stance on drug use. I'm not sure if that is an attempt to appease the US government, to help maintain our trade ties during a protectionist era by the states?

Nevertheless, good news that people are coming to their senses.

Have to love the System of a Down. I personally think on a medicinal level marijuana should be legalized nationwide. There are over 170 different medical uses for the plant. I wrote a college term paper comparing the differences between pharmaceutical drugs and cannabis. What I learned was astonishing. As for recreational use I think you could make arguments for both sides. I see it as something that could be taxed and regulated like things such as alcohol and tobacco. There has never been a case of someone dying from marijuana overdose. People who are high on marijuana don't go out and commit hate crimes like someone who is drunk or high on other drugs.
