Alcohol is legal and so is caffeine, both of which are drugs. One could say the damage done by both of those legal drugs far outweighs that of pot. Keeping a substance less dangerous then alcohol illegal only costs more money since price of incarceration is expensive. Let the government tax pot, let people get high instead of drunk if they so choose, and allow marijuana as an alternative painkiller or treatment for cancer and other illnesses.

Yes, since alcohol is legal, so weed should be too. You hear about couples having domestics when they're drunk but you don't hear it about stoners!!

Private prisons routinely select people locked up solely on cannabis charges because their generally low risk and high profit. People are already profiteering off it being illegal by taking advantage of the strain it places on the prison system. Although looking at it you seem to be from the uk i'm not sure if private prisons are a thing over there.

I am 100% for medical use of marijuana. I'm against it for recreational use. The same goes for Alcohol and Tobacco too. Both have many practical uses, none of which are recreational.

Ban Coffee, Cheese, Pot, Alcohol, Drugs, Abrahamic Religions, Brussel Sprouts, Asparagus, cigarettes, and some other stuff that would probably get me banned.

Personally against is actually being legalised as it may tempt people a lot more. But hey, if people are stupid enough to use it, I'll let them deal with the consequences.

Why don't they just legalize Opium, why start with the weakest Drug of all the Pot! Might as well go all the way to the top which is Opium.


The risk of respiratory depression is one of the big reasons, as are the potential problems brought on by people administering intravenously without the necessary training to do so safely. Unsterilized needles are a big problem for public health efforts at reducing bloodborne diseases as well, though distributing sterile needles has helped. The biggest problem of all is that there just aren't any better drugs out there for treating mental and physical pain than the opioids. The search continues, but they're as good as it gets for now. So abuse continues.

Seriously guys? If we ban weed, we should be. Banning cheese? Why stop at legalizing weed? Are those jokes or trolls? Because those are really bad reasons for thinking it should be illegal.

First off, unlike alcohol and other drugs, weed has positive benefits if you use it right. It's going to be treated like alcohol when it's legalized, but thats better for it to be smoked often than being an alcoholic. Yeah it's kind of stupid if you smoke it all the time and that can kill your dopamine levels rather than actually using it for its purpose, but honestly it can benefit a lot of people on a much better scale than alcohol potentially. I mean first off, the economy will benefit from it greatly. I mean the states that have legalized it already have seen a great improvement in their economy and have crated new jobs. For others, it's going to help with stress and other problems that alcohol cannot, and even with the bad effects of marijuana, that doesn't even remotely compare to alcohol's problems where you don't remember what you did, you lose brain cells, some people even get more stressed and angry, and it's way more expensive. Plus, you have a chance to die from it, where you can't die from weed.

There's more benefits from it and that's something you can't deny. I'm not a stoner, nor will i ever be the guy to get high 24/7, but seriously I know people who deal with depression, anxiety, and other medical problems that weed helps them with. I can tell when some are saying that as an excuse to get high and when others actually need it for a problem. Come on guys, do the research, it's been proven to help millions of people. There's tons of articles about this. I'm not just making this up because I don't see it to be a big problem.
