    Depends on where you are. Down here, we'll convict you for half a joint, and send you to the big house to think it over for 2-3 years.

    State issue, IMO.

    Alabama. Georgia and Florida are more lenient, but AL, MS, LA, TN, Ark, SC, they're similar to us in their views on pot. Bible belt and all, I suppose.

    I have always thought it should be a State issue, regulated by ATF or a similar agency on a Federal level with State Law taking precedence as they do with firearms and alcohol.

    You know.....thinking through what I just posted, I think I made your argument for you, didn't I? :)

    I suppose you're right then, on a Federal level, it should be decriminalized and regulated, then left to each State to decide what the law is.

    Still not fully awake......and haven't achieved my minimum required daily allowance of coffee :)

    I'd like to see marijuana decriminalized, and the DEA dismantled.

    I personally would love to see the Death Penalty for anyone that sells drugs to kids or on school property.

    I said "decriminalized", RGS, not "deregulated". It's a crime to feed alcohol to a minor....should also be one to feed them drugs, I agree.

    I think it should be decriminalized with all laws that apply to alcohol use, applied to marijuana use. If there are tests to determine whether one is driving under the influence of pot, then all laws applying to alcohol use should be applied to driving under the influence of cannabis. Pot is a mind-altering substance.
