    I'm not sure that will be his decision to make. It will be legalized no matter who is elected president, It might take a little longer under some scenarios, but it will happen.

    I don't like it personally, I think it's too strong of a drug. But I also have not seen any solid research that proves the 'gateway drug' label. And there are clearly medicinal and calming benefits that would help a lot of people.

    Marijuana is an avatar. It leads bad people and stupid people to do bad and stupid things, and good people on to do better things! You don't give bourbon or a 300 HP sport car to a 14 year old.

    But pot advocates are telling 14-year-olds that pot use is OK. And 14-year-olds are among the most vulnerable to brain chemistry problems and resulting anxiety, depersonalization and psychotic episodes from pot.

    I love how these assertions come with links to cites.

    I think he's right.

    Every person I know on drugs, is a loser. Every single one. Honestly, I start feeling better about myself pathetic life, when I meet people hooked on drugs.

    Now I get it that it has some medical benefits and crap, and honestly it's possible that we should legalize it...... maybe....

    But every single time, I meet these people, they are all garbage. Haven't met a pot smoker yet, who ran a business, or was building low income housing. They are all stoned, laying around wondering why their lives suck.

    So my trade off is.... you want to smoke pot, that's fine. But we as a society should ban you from all government services for the rest of your entire life. No nothing. No free health care. No food stamps, or welfare. Nothing. As in NOTHING.

    We do that, ok you can completely legalize it.
