    It's going to be boom market for the states that legalize it. I know if I buy pot illegally in my state, it was probably originally purchased and taxed in a state where it's legal. The tragedy is that the DEA has become the KKK in police garb.

    Serves me no purpose. If I still smoked it, though, I would be pretty pissed off if it became legal. The taxes will be ridiculous, and where is the fun? The thrill?
    Alternatively, I think it should be legal for medicinal reasons... Hash oil is also known to have wide and varied health benefits. An industry for hemp may very well replace cotton, foresting industry, and plastic production.

    Lol, the fun is in having a bag of weed, especially if it's good shit. The fact that it's illegal just makes people paranoid and leads to violence.

    This is true, except now there are legal dispensaries having to deal with a very pissed off supplier, the cartel.

    If it were legal, I'd imbibe every now and then, just like drinking. For now, it's illegal, and it's not worth losing my job.

    Going pretty good here so far in Colorado! Pharmacutical companies and the liquor industry hate it because it cuts into their money. Why should an herb that grows naturally in nature be made illegal. Why when it has medical benefits, is it illegal. Why is it you can get a prescription for narcotics but you can't use marijuana for the same purpose?

    It should be legal and regulated just like liquor. The only reason it is not is ignorance and the enormous money flow surrounding enforcement of anti-marijuana laws.

    Is it the job of the state to decide what chemicals we can and can`t put into our bodies?

    What is it with this obsession with the government to try to control every aspect of our lives ... I guess if everybody was high, no on would want to go fight in their wars and give up their lives for some bullshit government cause.

    Do NOT want to see it legal until they have a roadside check stop similar to the breathalyzer for alcohol.

    I don't want to share the road with people that are high!!

    Yeah, right. I'll bet people who take prescription drugs and text while driving are waaay more dangerous than stoners. So why single out one group?

    I only smoke when I am either meeting with LingLangs intolerant and idiotic family, or when we are host one of those famous gay group sex parties I hear about all the time.
    Oh and sometimes I smoke before I get on a long flight.
    Then I do like to smoke when I go to an Imax movie.
    And often times when I am forced to speak in public.
    I do like to smoke when taking a hot bath.
    Or a shower.
    Sometimes in the midst of a century ride, I will stop and light up.
    Oh and I do love to have raunchy sex with a nice buzz going on.
    Jesus, I just realized I smoke pot basically all the time. Thank god it's not addictive.

    Seriously. It should never have been made illegal in the first place. That it ever was, and that it has been kept illegal all this time, just shows how ignorant and corrupt those who run our government really are.

    If it's legalized here in oz it will sure make a massive dent in the market of illegal growers who pack it full of chemicals. It would also ruin those who makes fortune off it. So governments could control its use, sale etc I think it's a good idea then the bikies who recruit growers would suffer. The drug rings would diminish so too the amounts off cash and assets held by illegal growers and gangs. I think it wod be a good thing in Australia.

    I think it's a great idea -- and I don't even smoke the stuff, nor care to. The amount of tax revenue that Colorado has already gotten is quite a bit. And from a non-money point of view, the fact that the PEOPLE voted on this and it won....that's awesome to me.

    “This is a waste of law enforcement resources and taxpayer money. And a marijuana conviction can have tragic long-term consequences for individuals. People may lose jobs or be unable to secure employment because of a criminal record. Students who incur a marijuana conviction can lose their student loans. The punishment doesn’t fit the offense and New Jerseyans agree we should remove penalties and instead tax and regulate marijuana.”

    Advocates are applauding the senator’s announcement as a common sense measure that is long overdue. “Studies have repeatedly shown that whites and blacks consume marijuana at similar rates, yet people of color overwhelmingly suffer the criminal consequences,” said Udi Ofer, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey. “In New Jersey, African-Americans are arrested for marijuana possession at a rate of close to 3-1 when compared to whites, despite similar usage rates. The time has come to tax, regulate, and legalize marijuana for personal use.”

    Well I live in the first country in the world to fully legalize marihuana and sell it to everyone (in drugstores). As the president said "this is an experiment" one I agree with. Let's see how it works... (they will start selling the drug in June).

    The people of Colorado voted to legalize marijuana for medicinal and recreational use. We are no longer wasting money incarcerating people for smoking a vegetable. The weed has been freed.

    Before deciding, I want to wait and see the results of its being legalized in other states. Just because using something is unwise doesn't mean that it should be illegal. It's always unwise to inhale products of combustion. Using other means to ingest it would be less likely to cause damage, but I eschew all recreational drugs, including ethanol.

    Good, weed should be legalized everywhere. I smoke so much pot I swear it's a form of nutrition for me; all my cells are just held together by a web of THC molecules. So logically, if I didn't smoke weed I'd disintegrate at the molecular level, right?
