    They grow a LOT in Canada. However, prohibiting in this country funds drug lords elsewhere, and the REAL gateway drug (corner drug dealers that try to introduce you to other stuff). Both would be severely undercut with legalization. A good thing.

    It will happen. In the meantime, I'm Canadian and we are 70% or more in favor.

    We are usually a few decades behind Canada in the "efficient" and "reasonable" areas. ;-)

    They have more important 'stuff' to deal with! Why spend millions$$$$ on fighting a weed, of National interests!

    Apparently, it is one of British Columbia's biggest industries. That being said, it's still illegal to grow it and, if the present federal government has its way, will soon be even more illegal (mandatory jail time for even one plant). Rules concerning the growing and supply of medical cannabis are a huge mess that I don't want to try to explain. Happily, the anti-pot laws are widely ignored.

    Doesn't matter how many people want it legalized, there's no way for the government to make a legitimate profit from it because it's easy to grow.

    That is true, but it is also easy to grow half the produce I buy at the grocery store. ;-)

    Not as easy as it is to grow pot. It's called weed for a reason, and I don't think the government would even consider subsidizing it.

    It does way more good than harm (in fact, does it do any more harm than anything else we do to our bodies?), it can be regulated and taxed, and can free up space in prisons for harmful people, as well as freeing up budgets to target harmful drugs like crack and heroin.

    100% agreed.

    Drugs with extraordinarily high chemical addiction properties (heroine, cocaine, even nicotine) can completely take over a mind. I have a line (some do not), and it ends with drugs like those.

    Of course. On social values, the USA follows behind where Canada leads. More slowly on some issues than on others.

    I find alcohol and tobacco to be far more damaging in almost any arena of discussion. I also understand there are those that wish it were all abolished.

    Thank you.

    They are. Neither would pass through the FDA in today's world. They're both too addictive. I've been hooked on both.
    Let's not add to the problem by legalizing pot.

    Great for the states- legalize it and regulate it. Those opposed would be the big pharma, drug dealers, Mexican cartels and the warehousing full of so- called criminals.

    Big tobacco, big alcohol, prison management, etc.. .

    The reason it is illegal today is due to greed, not reason. IMO.

    Can't have healthy people- there goes the need for pharmaceutical drugs. And their profits.

    Pharmaceutical companies have a long history of giving large amounts of money to anti-drug campaigns for this very reason.

    Hmmm. Wonder if they sponsered Nancy Reagan's "Just sat NO" campain?!! And all we hear is that the DC bigwigs aren't influenced by pharma.

    Pharmaceutical, tobacco and alcohol give/gave large donations to the "Partnership for a Drug Free American", for which we have seen all of their famous commercials.

    They stopped taking it from alcohol and tobacco, but still take it from big pharma.
