    A majority of American citizens (50-60%) favor the legalization of marijuana, something that should have happened 40 years ago. Stop making criminals of everyday citizens! FREE THE GREEN!

       I think the number is quite higher. I smoke it regularly, my family and the majority of my friends do as well. I don’t think we should have it illegal any more. Regulate it and it would cut down on crime (if there is much anyway) associated with it and go after people who peddle bath salts, cocaine, heroin, pills, and other drugs.

        You guys are all idiots! Smoking pot is simply not good for you or society in general…..I have friends like you who have just stalled in life, thinking they are just fine, but not growing or moving forward, some still live at home off their parents. Duh! Wake up, and give it up, pot is bad and just leads to bigger problems!

             I smoked marijuana before I even drank alcohol. I don’t link either one having an affect on my use in them…maybe I’m against the curve. But together they are awesome.

            Marijuana calms me. I’m a pretty uptight dickwad a lot of the time

        i have never tried it but i think it should be legalized and taxed. employers would need to be protected so they are not forced to hire stoners. other than that what you do in the privacy of your own home is your business

        Ask the families of the thousands of people who have been murdered by the cartel’s in Mexico who smuggle marijuana across the border if there is much crime associated with it.  As the immigrants who are smuggled into this country and forced to live in remote areas and grow marijuana under threats of their entire family being executed if they fail to produce a crop if there is a crime associated with it.
