    On CNN this morning, I saw a story about a California lawmaker who is suggesting that cannabis be legalized for everyone over the age of 21.

    He says that it could bring in up to several million dollars per year in taxes alone.

    CNN ran a viewer poll, and 95.8 percent of the people surveyed said that legalization of cannabis would be a good thing.

    Hey........if and when it happens.......I'm gonna be a rich man, as I've got a patent on a really cool water pipe.

    What a great idea maybe all the illegal’s will move to California to sell their pot. And in a few years time Ca. people will be even more brain dead. As to you, I don't see how you can do something like that. I guess selling out for money is your thing. Pot is not good for anyone. It may be the least harmless drug out there but it still isn't good. I find it ironic that the lefties want to put the tobacco out of biz with the high tax. This will not curtail the illegal distribution of POT because high taxes on it will make it easier for the DRUG CARTEL to have a big foot hold in Ca. This isn't good at all.

    They should legalize not only there but nationally, it would take billions out of the criminals underground world.

    Then we have stupid people in court for something else blaming it on being too stoned to understand that fucking law. A big open can of worms that apparently nobody has thought of. It will bring the reverse action then what you think it would bring.

    Didn't have those problems prior to drugs being unlawful, treat it like alcohol; drink responsibly but abuse it by hurting someone then suffer the consequences.

    I want nothing to do with the stoner culture.

    But pot should be legalized, as should most, if not all drugs.

    If you have never smoked pot you should try it.

    Its very pleasant and done in moderation presents no problem what so ever to the imbiber.
