Please give reasons for why or why not, and if yes, then when?

it almost was about a yr ago, the head of the DEA said that the evidence was that weed didnt fit with the other class 1 drugs so he was proposing to knock it wount to aspirin lvl class 5, he was fired within the week and this new bitch was put in his place…for some reason, idk if its money or simple pride, but federal gov will not legalize it ever. even if all the states do i dont thin the federal gov ever will

Never federally but on a state level, yes. In Washington State and others there is an initiative to legalize marijuana just like alcohol.

@lamekillers, yep. The government just needs to find a way of fertilizing the plants with addictive chemicals and taxing the crap out of it, but once they find a way to infect you with disease and constantly drain your resources, you will get your legalized weed.

It should definitely be legalized. I think it will be. But it has to be done on a large scale. The high levels of drug consumption in the U.S. are affecting us here in Mexico. With all due respect, it is a joke and an insult that there are states where it is legal or is being talked about making it, while thousands die down here because of that.

If it is ever legalized it should be legalized everywhere, or at least by a large group of countries.. like North America. As long as a government or country is fighting against drug cartels and has the drugs (in this case marihuana) classified as illegal, the legalization in one place would only mean big trouble to another.

Last year an important group of intellectuals such as Nobel Prize winners, ex-presidents, etc. came together to discuss the legalization of marihuana. I don’t think it will be long till they finally legalize or at least decriminalize marihuana. In my opinion it will be someday in the next ten years.

I believe it will be legal at a state level within five. Federal level within fifteen. Or it could never be.. Never underestimate the people’s stupidity.

Legalising cannabis would be against the Illumitati’s mission of dumbing down society to make it easier to control. They would rather people have ignorant, derogatory views towards cannabis.

This is a very complex issue but it mainly always boils down to money, regulation and general misunderstanding of the ‘drug world’ from our lovely governments.

Base on my experience, I feel like at first marijuana gave me euphoric experience that enhanced my creativity. However, once I started smoking more and more, it unmotivated me to the point where I was contempt with everything I did as long I was high which created the “I don’t give a fuck mentality”.

Although this is base on my experience, I found that a lot of people go through these stages. Depending on the person, I do believe the stereotype of marijuana use; that in a sense, it makes the user lazier.

If marijuana is legalized, then I guarantee more people will get high and they would probably use it more often than they would now. This is especially true in teenagers (the biggest demographic of pot smokers). This is why (along with other reasons) the U.S doesn’t want weed to be legalized at a federal level. It’s because we are silently at war with many foreign countries that are placing emphasis on education. Our education system is outdated and is not as effective as it use to be. The problem is that instead of students adapting to this system, the system is not adapting to students. Our technologies enable us to learn more effectively and efficiently. I for sure take in more knowledge and information in a 90 min documentary than sitting through countless hours of lecture. However, war and military spending are taking away the money that can be used to improve and advance our education system. The U.S. is producing above average students but we are still behind other countries such as China and now India. This is a threat to us because that means stiffer competition for World Power.

Marijuana could be the single thing that saves our economy or it could be the worst thing for long-term growth. I still believe it is a great herb and has more pros than it does with cons. However, the U.S. thirst to remain at World Power and corporate greed are the main reasons why this herb is illegal and will be illegal for many decades to come (probably until people in our generation takes office). With our current system and war(s) that are present today, legalizing marijuana might not be the best thing for this country at this moment. We just need to find the right balance.

Yes, eventually. It’ll be filtered and regulated just like the cigarette.

People will realize it’ll create jobs and boost the economy. It’ll keep people who smoke out of prison and away from people who kill. On top of that, it’s another semi-addictive substance the government can tax ridiculously high, lol.

People will be stupid not to make it legal.

I hope that we see it legalized at a federal level within 15 years, however with the current politicians in Washington and the current officials it wont be possible. I think most of us are aware that marijuana has several medical uses. It helps those going through kemo, helps those with anxiety, helps insomnia, etc. The federal government is either well aware of this or kept ignorant by those who are. The largest contributors to political campaigns are pharmaceutical companies, the guys who would have a huge competitor if weed was made legal. If you’ve ever followed politics you are aware that there is a concept that politicians owe the people that fund their campaigns. That is what I believe is happening today with cannabis being kept illegal.
