    LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA A NO WINNER

    Legalizing marijuana will create more crime, more drug addiction, and will not generate revenue expected. Unless it will be illegal to grow your own, people will have their won marijuana gardens and they will have to ride shot gun over it to prevent it from being stolen.
    What ever government sell it for, drug cartels will sell it cheaper and still make a profit.
    The cost involved in legalization will far out weigh any revenue generated, and will not stop drug related crimes.
    Legalization of marijuana is a no winner so put it on your shelf and smoke it.
    It will increase crime, increase drug addiction and increase of cost of legalization vs. illegal.
    Can you even imagine a country full of drug induced Americans. Are they not already crazy enough on prescription drugs?
    There are far more alcoholics now then in prohibition and more alcohol related illness and death. Same with cigarette smoking. Oils released in marijuana smoking is dangerous than cigarette smoking. Just because it may me less harmless than cigarettes does not mean it is harmless. I can only imagine the damage it does to a teens young lungs and heart.

    Miami is going to make bath salts illegal so if pot is legalized, the cartels will still have a marketable product.

    Making marijuana legal will not stop the cartels or other drug dealers, they will just move on to create new drugs or stock up on crack cocaine, heroin, mushrooms etc etc

    That's true! Making booze legal just created a market for pot.

    The cartels won't stop until they are stamped out of existence.

    In the 1800s when Britian was colonizing India there was a religious sect called the Thugees (where we get the word thug from). The practice of their religion involved murder, rape and theft. The British exterminated them. No trials, no civil rights claims. They were exterminated like vermin. Now there are no more Thugees.

    That's what we need to do with the Cartels. A war of extermination.

    Marijuana makes people too introspective. It allows them to feel empathy for other human beings and diminishes the cut-throat capitalist brain washing that we're taught in school.

    In short, it's bad for Big Business.

    Ban liquor when pot is legal.

    Sounds like a reason to legalize everything.

    I'm growing some white widow right now, about 5 weeks into the flowering stage and sometimes I have dreams I'm Che' Guevera. Whoever that is.

    In these dreams I also came to the realization that both political parties are simply two sides of the same corrupt coin.

    Ban this devil weed! Ban it!

    Generate revenue for who?
    I'm pretty sure it is already generating revenue for the people that already produce it. Kind of like people that grow other crops generate revenue for themselves.
    I suppose pot growers should pay income tax, just like other crop growers, is the income tax revenue what you were talking about?

    Not enough alcohol related deaths, add another intoxicant available legally? No thanks. The prescription pill problem is killing many Americans & I have seen violence in that 'industry'. Focus on stopping the pill epidemic, and treat alcohol related crime harshly. Do not add another drug to the mix.
