Medicinal marijuana a 'path' to recreational use, experts warn
Opponents of medicinal marijuana often have said legalizing its medical use will only lead to decriminalizing its recreational use, and this year they say they have proof.

While voters in Arizona and South Dakota will consider initiatives on Election Day that would legalize medicinal marijuana, California voters -- where medical marijuana already is legal -- will decide whether to legalize the recreational use of pot when they vote on Proposition 19.

And that may just be the beginning. In 2012, several states, including Colorado, Nevada and Washington state, may have initiatives on the ballot to legalize marijuana's recreational use. The three states are among the 14 where its medicinal use is legalized. It also is legal in the District of Columbia. ...

But if they are going to do it anyway, why not make it legal?

People are going to go to prostitutes-Make it legal.
People are going to rob banks-Make it legal
People are going to kill- make it legal.

Oh, by the way, pot does have collateral damage.

Good point. Especially since I've never driven a Ferrari either, and was assuming he meant by his analogy that he got a much greater "rush" from pot than from cigarettes.

Your point about alcohol is well taken, in that I know from experience its capacity to alter the conscious state of the user.

Legalizing pot would certainly give people another avenue to do this, and I guess they have the right to do so; but I'd naturally prefer they didn't.

apparently the medicinal form aids in pain management, a huge issue in an age of chronic illness, with people sicker longer, prices of health care going up, and pharmaceuticals having no real solutions for long-term pain....

You forgot:
Amotivational Syndrome

Bad grades

Inconsistent employment record

The DEA parled outside of your house.

Paranioa (But they may still be after you anyway)

Stunted Emotional Growth (40 going on 14)

John, maybe that was true - for him. I hate to dissent, but one cannot generalize from that about the effect of a substance on all men. And I don't understand his automotive analogy. Maybe faster means "more aware?"

Per Rom. 9, the state's job is to punish those who do actual evil to others, not those who do evil only to themselves.

Shouldn't we admit that we have a blatant legal double-standard: booze is tolerated, but pot is not? I don't like siding with the hippies here, but then, drunks aren't my kind of people, either.

I've never smoked tobacco or marijuana, but was told by a co-worker who has smoked both that the difference between cigarettes (nicotine) and marijuana (THC) is like the difference between driving a volkswagon and a ferrari.

Even if he was exagerating the difference between the effects of each substance on the human body it would appear from his own testimony that marijuana is a MUCH more powerful drug than nicotine.

I say let's err on the safe side and keep marijuana ILLEGAL, if for no other reason than to try to protect people from this very powerful drug and hopefully keep more people living in their right minds.

Name one person who died from marijuana.

I don't condone smoking anything but this so-called argument warning about this so-called danger is being overplayed.

Ask simple questions like:

What is the most addictive substance on the planet and why isn't it criminalized?

What is one of the main causes of highway fatalities and why isn't it controlled even more?

What is a growing health concern that has affected the Western world and many parts of Asia ad why are not tese people put in jail?
