Maybe if we gave Marijuana to right wing nut conservatives they would turn into Libertarians
Maybe if we gave Marijuana to liberals they would turn into Libertarians.
Maybe if we gave Marijuana to elected officials, they would balance the budget and give us good services for taxes paid

    The "war on drugs" is a failure. Always has been, always will be. Portugal gave up on the war, and instead of spending money on law enforcement they spent the money on free drug treatment for those who wanted to quit but needed help. That approach worked. We should try that approach here, but we won't because politicians will be too afraid to look "soft on crime."

    No amount of controls put on something is going to completely prevent it. But controlling the accessibility and putting age restriction limits would reduce the access of underage children.

    Maybe if parents were smarter, the kids wouldn't want drugs. But if a kid wants to try something, they will. Whether it's cigarettes, alcohol, pot, or crack. You can't stop a determined person.

    I am for legalization but legal or not, pot will be available. That said I rather the Gov/Country benefit of it's sales rather than the drug cartels. Tax it, regulate it and put people to work in the pot industry

    If you legalize it, it will be more accessible. Let's not fool ourselves. The price however will go down, and that's something that I think everyone would appreciate.

    How on earth can we (USA government) control the spread of marijuana when we(US government ) cannot even balance the federal budget, stop the flow of people from Mexico, make college affordable ( that's right make college less about student loans and more about education), or simply end homelessness??? This is the great lie about legalization of marijuana that some people simply ignore-the ineffective nature of government agencies. Frequently what the government says is not what they do.

    It would work only to do one thing, other than provided create liberty to Americans. It would reduce and eventually end the cartel violence over marijuana. As the people of Portugal how many people have died in cartel relates shootings lately, I'd bet is isn't many.

    These answers were just funny.

    How I see it is that if we decriminalized drugs, I'd see far more people seeking help with their problems or for friends and family, rather than fearing prison sentences that rival that of a murderer or worse.

    The law already does not stop drunk drivers or kids from drinking. There is no reason to believe that the law has any positive effect on drug abuse. It only increases corruption and violent crimes.

    In the netherlands, teen use of weed is half that of the US.
    When dealers are regulated, they don't sell to minors.
    It was the same way with alcohol during Prohibition--bootleggers sold to anyone.

    The best way to keep weed away from kids is to make regulated trade legal.

    Why should we restrict access? At most, shouldn't it be up to the parent's discretion? Alcohol controls are likely hurting children, making them less mature about alcohol usage and making them more likely to be alcoholics than their counterparts in nations with less restriction on alcohol.

    The best way to protect children from illiicit drugs is to keep it away from them. When you say "Children under age" then think in terms of "Razor Blades" and "Rat Poison"; so to speak. That will help you to better grasp the main ideology concerning The PROTECTION of CHILDREN.

    The thing is, marijuana isn't deadly. In a healthy society, it doesn't even hold much interest. Parents are supposed to be the agents of protection for children. When govt gets into ANY business besides its own, inefficiency and totalitarianism are hovering nearby.

    It would be nice if parents could be better protected from the Government on April 15th . . . But, then again, THAT wasn't the Question. "The Government" meaning The White House, and Congress; always likes to follow the money-trail; and if that means To Hell With Children, then it's To Hell With Children. If that's going to be another question, then perhaps the category that would be more appropriate would be "Fun & Humor" . . .

    You know, we often drink fluoride when it use to be the most common rat poison (but its been phased out these days). Its pretty sad that we are allowed, and sometimes forced to drink rat poison while we cant touch marijuana.

    Some Municipalities have even discussed the possibilities of adding a lifelong birth-control (contraception) to the City Water Supply . . . . Then "Right To Choose" Mothers-To-Be can just simply swallow a pill and get pregnant; provided they are being nailed, regularly. BTW, to commit Suicide, when someone swallows razor-blades, there are two thngs that ER wants to determine when the patient arrives at the Hospital; Where are the razor-blades locted and What kind are they? An Ex-Ray will determine where the Blades are located; if their alimentary canal travels deliver them to the stomach; if so, then don't worry about it. Stomach Acids will dissolve them okay . . . UNLESS they are Gillette Super Blue Blades . . . The stomach acids don't have any probs with eradicating the Schick Stainless Steel Blades, but there is some kind of hard alloy formulated for the Gillette Super Blue Blades that make them tough enough to cut up a suicide victims insides; which was the whole idea to begin with. If you have any children who might be prone to commit suicide, then I would advise to not let them read this. Now, I am not saying that you should let them smoke, drink, or something, either.

    Just like control put on alcohol/cigarettes, the legalization of Cannabis wouldn't have a darn bit of impact on access to children under age. Ever watch kids hand $$ to people outside a package store to get them to buy the minors beer? And in this case, they can even grow it themselves. IT'S JUST A PLANT PEOPLE!

    Legalization would not limit access, as we have seen here in CA with the "medical use" giving the operation of "dispensaries" freedom to peddle their wares at will, increased use by the underage population.

    Absolutely it would put the responsibility in that child's parents hand should that child have access to it in the home it would be the parents responsibility. I for one am a Medical Marijuana recipient and with all prescribed drugs it is kept away from my children and never used in their presence hell my wife doesn't even know. Yep I'm that good
