    None.

    Too much of a police/nanny state built upon the idiotic federal "war" on (some) drugs....It's basically a giant welfare program for narc agents, the legal system and the prison-industrial complex.

    I think Marijuana will be decriminalized. Given the money we waste on the war on drugs, I'd like to see coke decriminalized also

    Now if we could tax the stuff ....

    "Decrimminalized" and "Legal" are 2 different things.

    Pot is already decriminalized in lib-havens like Seattle - where possession is given low priority and rarely if ever prosecuted.

    I realize that

    I doubt if you will ever be able to buy it at the 7-11 but by decriminalizing, you can grow your own and nobody gives a crap

    I think some will. Primarily the drugs that corporations can figure out how to profit from. For that reason, I suspect marijuana will be one of the last. Drug prohibition has never been about protecting users - it's about protecting suppliers. Illegal drugs are pretty much always the drugs that people can make for themselves if they want to.

    Went downhill in the 1970s - with lexicon of "drug-of-choice" when snorting cocaine was considered "hip" and "cool".

    Not the America I grew up in .................................

    Why is it the committed leftist just can't allow freedom for the sake of freedom?

    Nope....They just gotta line Big Daddy Big Gubmint's pockets.

    Wankers.

    Will any legal drug become illegal in the next 30 years. It's pretty ironic that the left wing is pushing hard to make tobacco products illegal while trying to legalize marijuana.

    Drug of Choice lexicon in the 1970s -when America started on the path of ruin like the Roman Empire-
