Legalize Marijuana And Solve Many Tax Issues / Prison Issues

To legalize marijuana would mean an end to the billions of wasted dollars fighting this "war on drugs". A war, that anyone who grew up in America and went to public schools, saw first hand was lost. Imagine taxation on an herb that has many positive potentials. It can be used to make food, clothes, rope, and hell, even money. To make it illegal costs far more money and it cuts out many potential benefits from it's legalization. ...more »

Prohibition didn't work in the 20th century ... and needs to END.

The USA government should at the very least be embarassed by its attempt to prohibit certain activities and the use of so-called "controlled substances". Not only is the War on drugs a war they have lost, but it is one that the government can not win. It must end now. Legislators seem to have a mentality that just because they pass a law which bans something, that people will obey. Reality is often the opposite. ...more »

I am no criminal I love marijuana.

We are people JUST LIKE YOU. Stop treating us like we are criminals, we are not violent people!

We exist is society already anyways, stop throwing innocent people in jail!

Not only are we tossed in prison cells but we are squeezed for every dime we have by the court systems.

WE ARE NOT CRIMINALS.

WE ARE PEOPLE.

WE THE PEOPLE, want marijuana legalized.

Legalize Marijuana/Cannabis/Hemp

The responsible use of alcohol was ended by the 18th Amendment on January 29, 1919. This amendment was repealed by the 21st Amendment on December 5, 1933 when the state of Utah ratified it. The reason for the repeal of the 18th Amendment was because the U.S. Government realized that prohibition only created more problems than it solved. Drinking rates grew higher, crime increased. Millions of dollars were made by ...more »

Legalize Marijuana

Legalize it. Don't criticize it!

 

We all know the facts, ok. No one if fooling anyone else with "Reefer Madness" type fear tactics. We all know it will not kill you. No one has EVER died as a direct result from consuming marijuana. NOT ONE. I will shoot myself in the head, on web-cam, if someone can show me ONE death directly from smoking weed. ONE, UNO!

Open up discussion to re-evaluate marijuana laws

I think it's time to have a serious debate about the current marijuana prohibition laws and the effects it's having on a very large part of society. People are always saying that marijuana legalization would send the wrong message to kids, but what I believe to be the wrong message to kids, is the fact that so many non-violent offenders are spending time in jail, when they should be at home raising their kids, instead ...more »

Drugs and more a more reasonable and reallistic approach.

It's no secret that we're losing the drug war. Take this very website and it's "legalize marijuana" posts as an almost certain truth of that. Anyone younger than 30 can say with certainty that they or many of their friends used and/or abused illegal substances. That being said the money they paid for those substances is almost all funnelled back across one of our borders. This has made way for an incredibly vibrant drug ...more »

Making Data More Accessible

Deleted posts

I don't see anyone complaining that you deleted their "legalize marijuana" post of which there are MANY MANY duplicates. This tells me the only posts being deleted are the ones addressing Obama's eligibility to serve as President. If anyone believes the order to do so isn't coming directly from the White House, I have some ocean front property in Arizona I'd like to sell you.

Legalize marijuana for agriculture, taxation, medical, bio fuel, AND TOURISM.

Legalize marijuana for agriculture, taxation, medical, bio fuel, AND TOURISM. Henry Ford built his first car using plastic made from industrial hemp. It was also powered by hemp diesel. The oil industry does not want this. Industrial and medical hemp would generate billions of dollars in tax money. Bio diesel is not my favorite fuel, but it can be "made in America". Location, location, location, tourism in America ...more »

New Strategies and Techniques

A way to end the war against the people as well as end the cartel's profit

“U.S. Customs agents got a surprise on April 9, when they checked a trailer of an 18-wheel truck crossing into El Paso, Texas, from Mexico and found more than 9,000 pounds of marijuana hidden among auto parts bound for U.S. factories.” Reason why I posted this is this simply points the fact I and many other Americans know about if marijuana was legalized and taxed that these types of problems with the cartel would no ...more »

New America

Use stimulus money to... 1. Create a comprehensive network of high speed rail lines in low atmosphere tubes for commuting and commercial use. This technology is faster, cheaper and more efficient than air, truck or ship travel and building it would provide jobs. 2. Rewire the US for 'the Grid' (the new internet created by CERN) to upgrade our communication and commerce network and, again, create jobs. 3. Rework the electrical ...more »
