I get what your saying, would you feel more secure if the kids were saying we were getting drunk or taking mom's pain pills in the medicine cabinent? Its tough to be a parent these days, best way is to educate kids about real risks of using many drugs, legal and illegal. addiction comes in many forms and vices

I am in the firm Marijuana should be legal corner. Too many wasted lives from being in and out of jail over it. Too much money spent on a rabbit hole. Too many resources tied up over the prohibition's enforcement.

So smoking should be discouraged, unless it's weed. Got it.

I'm of two minds on this. Prohibition never works. But let's not act like pot is any less a vice than alcohol, smoking etc. LOL comparing it to oreos. At what point are sweets acceptable, then? Should we ban anything but rice cakes and cucumber salad (no dressing)?

Weed has some proven medicinal value, unlike tobacco.

Smoking anything should be discouraged, now vaporizing something, that's another story.

And who is acting like pot is not a vice? Alcohol and tobacco are both legal vices, that are both have considerably worse known side effects, yet are both accepted by society and legal. And all sweets are legal so I'm not really sure what your point is? But if you don't think restrictions, taxes and bans of sweets are coming you are kidding yourself.

Everything in life is about moderation, unfortunately we as Americans who live in the world of excess sometimes find it hard to moderate are lives.

Well said. Also, I think alot of people who have substance abuse issues are genetically predispose to addiction issues to begin with or are suffering from mental illness(depression, anxiety, stress disorders, personality disorder, etc). With these cases, the approach that works best is health issue approach. The criminal approach is the wrong way.

We as a country need to step back redefine alot of issues, mental health and substance abuse issues are top of the list imo. The typical "man up" or lock the person up and throw away the key approaches to these issues dont work. I think a light is starting to go off about mental health as we see these mass shootings across the nation and heinous crimes.

Making it legal, with age restrictions like smoking, putting advisories on packaging, and taxing it all would be a step in the right direction. No one is talking about force feeding it to people who don't want to smoke it, just not incarcerating those who do.

Eliminate the black market, reduce crime, profit from it, everyone wins. Because at the end of the day people want to and are going to get high legal or not, might as well make it safer and make money off it.
