View Full Version : Should marijuana remain illegal?

Yes or no and short answer as to why.
I say no because regardless of claims, it remains addictive and dangerous and legalization just rewards all the illegal activity that has been going on for all these years.

I say it should be legalized, but monitored. Only unstable and unhappy people become addicted to weed and use it as a "crutch". It is a mildly inexpensive plant that becomes a drug only when it's touched by chemicals, like 90% of weed in the United States. Untouched cannibis is harmless (to a certain degree) and there are many who view it as recreational and as a "casual" thing, much like drinking alcohol.
Monitoring would also allow the government to tax it and, so long as they stop being greedy barstards, can use it to make really cheap, good quality paper. Probably won't happen, because they like killing trees and selling 200 sheets for 5$, meh.
In Canada, under 11oz of weed is already legal. I think that should be applied everywhere, assuming that the weed isn't touched by chemicals.
Alcohol and cigarettes are more addictive than marijuana; they're also more destructive to society and the individuals consuming them. They should become illegal and cannibis legalized.

Eh, don't really care.
I have had friends who smoked weed. They got me to try, and I did. Wasn't my thing, so I left and didn't look back.
So, I would care if it was legalized. :/

There's already a thread like this in Other Chat (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=216070) (which you have posted in...), we do not need two threads on the same subject. Regardless, a thread like this would be better in Other Chat, ANYWAY, as it would most certainly be more of a discussion rather than a poll.
