  1. Weed is like alcohol, the society didn't like alcohol, so they basically ignored it. So I'm sure that moralistic parents or children would most likely ignore weed unless they're depressed.

  2. B.S. more high school aged youth are smoking weed in states like California where statewide competency levels in core cognition is 33% and less than 8% in some districts.

  3. Recreational is a bad idea. After all, you don't take medicine for recreational fun. More money comes out of the taxpayer's pocket thanks to the legalization of recreational marijuana and thus more tax revenue comes out of their pockets than money taxed on marijuana so it's not worth it. More people couldn't fill work positions because they were intoxicated and lowering standards would make us more like the third world in construction.

  4. I don’t think marijuana is addicting at all. I used to smoke marijuana and drink all the time in my adolescence. I haven’t smoked in 9 years and I probably have a beer once a month. Addiction isn’t all about the substances you use. It’s more directly related to your mental health, culture, and situational environment. Which is the biggest problem in America.

  5. Can anyone explain why alcohol and cigarettes and cars are legal and marijuana is not???

    Alcohol and cigarettes combined kill about a half million ppl every year, cars kill about a million ppl every year, marijuana kills nobody!!

    Yet it is perfectly legal to drive a car while smoking a cigarette and having boxes of alcohol in your trunk, but god forbid I had 1 gram of weed with me I go to jail….?????????

    MARIJUANA IS NOT A DRUG – IT IS A MEDICINE WITHOUT HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS (hungry happy sleepy)

  6. Ironically I live in Texas and there barely allowing marijuana to expanded for medical use. But living in a red state with more concerns with lack of infrastructure, a more proper Medicare system, or any if at all different jobs would be backwards regardless

  7. Weed is not a drug it's an unaltered plant material ingested by various means with nothing but benefits. Anything that could possibly hurt you from smoking or eating it is hella out weighed by the benefits

  8. See then its the police they be watching niggas who smoke like i feel like 1 day they gonna dp something about it me im going in the military im drinking detox im willing to stop i moght even go back to rehab ots probably the best thing for me

  9. Dont blaim the child gettingnthere hands on pot on the pot but blame the parent

    Thats like blamjng alchahol cause kids got there hands kn there parents booze

    You blame the bad parents not the substance

  10. Now compare alcohol which is legal. More crime violence and death that has already been proven with statistics. Marijuana is hands down not bad for society and is more responsible to make legal if your comparing it to alcohol which should be illegal, sorry that's how I feel about it.

  11. They were highs and what? If its legal, its the same as alcohol. People crash drunk everyday and nobody is banning alcohol. I think its just that people are not used to it and eventually (is that spelled right?) they will calm down a little. Hopefully 🙃

  12. Drugs bring in huge profits that are going to the drug cartels. This drug money must be laundered and only multi million dollar corporations are able to do this to include banks. Corporations and banks stand to lose the most with legalization. Therefore, the corporations and banks are fighting legalization tooth and nail. That is what is missing in this debate. The government represents big business and big business loves drug dealers who use their services. It is all about money. Our government supports big corporations. It does not representation common citizens.

  13. 2018 and as far as I know everyone is still alive in Colorado the big change people are not so hostile towards each other also the tax revenues are going to build schools. Take care and have a great day everyone……..
