I think it's a good idea.  Marijuana was only made illegal to give the Fed's Alcohol Agents a job in the Drug Agency when the prohibition era ended.  It was legal prior to that.

agreed. It's not any worse than alcohol.  But suprised how fast this is going to move now state to state

 
If pot was legal, I have to believe there would be less border crime, less spent on jails, more tax revenue to the states and federal government, and more enjoyable sex.
 
There is a big debate in my state about taxing chocolate.  Also, a bill to legalize pot was just introduced, so I think it's going to happen eventually.

I think one issue to completely legalizing it is how would the police enforce a DUI?  Is there a measurement that a cop can take at the scene to measure how high a person is like they can a breathalyzer with alcohol?  I remember back in high school I smoked with a friend and it was some awesome $hit and I was about a 5 minute drive to my house.  I got in the car and as soon as I backed out of the driveway to head home I asked my buddy to take the wheel because I was in spaceland.  On other occasions I had puffed a little and been completely fine.  How is the law gonna measure that?  If a guy gets pulled over and has 5 bags of Funyuns on his person then that means he's more high than the person with 3 bags?  It'll be interesting to see how that plays out.

Good question.  My guess would be, any amount that is still in the bloodstream.  Not only are you going to create a lot of tax revenue.  The courts are going to have a field day on DUIs.  Probably be able to charge an arm and a leg.

I don't know how they would test for DWI.  But the police don't need radar guns...just look for people going 30 mph on the freeway!

There will still be a black market for this stuff.  Do you think drug peddlers want to pay taxes?  What department is going to regulate them?  FDA?  That would be a clusterfcuk!

there is a black market for this stuff now.  Hell guys I know buy from the black market here which is buying from CA with a medical license and shipping it.  They say the quality is unreal

 
I have a buddy with a medical license.  I've been in the "store" with him.  It's like a candy shop.  It is unreal.

Presidents have been involving themselves in the "side-business" since the constitution was written.  At this point, it would be strange if they didn't have the strange vajayjay on the side.

Opium for the masses.

 
Perhaps a majority of Americans now can get more from the government than they can from themselves.
 
Be happy. Don't feel bad if you figure out how to profit from the dumbing down of America, and do better than average for yourself.
 
I'm sure most of us know from experience that  pot is insidious stuff. Ironically, it may open up a lot of opportunities for those who maintain clarity.
 
To the extent that some Americans are ambitious, but underemployed and unhappy, pot could be the answer to many problems. I just don't want my kids smoking it.
