Obama leagilize Mary J ?

Friend told me that he is voting for Obama because he wants to leagilize weed. true? or false? Would that bill ever pass? I don't think so. Although it would be another thing to tax, and that could really help the economy...

Imput=appreciation. Thanks.

Maybe decriminalization.

I'm not to keen on his position, but that's what I've heard.

He's apparently for decriminalization, whether or not that happens is another thing.

I think the reason the government will never legalize marijuana is because it is a weed and anyone could grow it and make money of of it...AKA the government couldn't get their money off of it.

I doubt he'd touch the issue. War in Iraq, ****ty economy, energy independence, border security, and education are all things I'd see being targeted before our drug laws. Although I think we need to save ourselves billions each year and focus on re-thinking our drug laws.

How? They are two completely different things. Or do you just try to attack Obama at every chance you get?

You can also grow your own tobacco, make your own alcohol/beer, and grow your own food, but most people still get everything at the store and pay the "sin" taxes.

After Prohibition, I'm not sure if any President wants to be known as the man who "effectively 'legalized' (or decriminalized) marijuana." It's such a big risk, I don't see any of these career politicians putting their neck out there for something that won't swing the vote in their direction.

Him and Hillary both promise raids on medical marijuana to end. I think I heard somewhere he wants it used federally for medical use, but if that were to happen I think full legalization is very soon inevitable.

You know, everyone says that, but Jesus titty Christ, this is America. Who the ****s going to grow their own weed when they could spend less time going to the store and buying much better stuff?

Hmmm...I don't see a difference. If you decriminalize something you take away its criminal penalties. If you legalize something, you take away its criminal penalties.

If you decriminalize marijuana, you only pay a fine, similar to a traffic ticket, for violating the law. If it is illegal, then technically you go to jail for possession. Big difference.

^That's only right if you put the word "some" into the definition of "decriminalize".

Legal definition and dictionary definition are two different things. Decriminalization generally involves making possession of a predetermined amount a non-criminal offense, which is punishable by a fine and citation, but no other charges; production and distribution are still illegal under decriminalization.

Legalization is the whole kit and caboodle.

I am kinda for it. I wouldn't use it, but look at the cost of a joint. About $5. Put that in a pack of 12, that is $60 before tax. It would help the economy, and it could become an export. It would need to be regulated, but it could help.
