    Tell me in what world you live in when there would be no cartels? How would that happen. What you think violent criminals would just give up? 2nd I don't really care if it becomes legal or not, that's not my issue. My issue is that you liberals and police bashers hate cops for simply doing their job. You get assessed at work just as police do. Police don't make the they enforce it. It's your right to get high all you want but for right now it's illegal so get over it

    Its amazing how many people are killed or injured from being drunk or victimized from a drunk person. How many people die or injured from being stoned?? Alcohol is a far more dangerous drug than marajuana. Alchohol contributes to the death of tens of thousands of people every year!!! and it's LEGAL I guess that makes it ok?

    disgusted2010 - It actually shows that people can formulate their own thoughts and realize how absurd it is that a doctor can prescribe you drugs that are much more dangerous than marijuana. Try thinking for yourself...

    speaking of ignorance.. first, its "whole," not "hole." second, if it was legal there would not be drug cartels. third, marijuana has vastly improved the lives of those suffering from cancer and other debilitating illness. finally, the homeless population boom is because they are migrating there looking for work in the marijuana industry, not because people are getting high and losing their jobs/homes.

    Its funny that all our drug laws were created and based on racist feelings of whites but no one complains about that. WR Hearst pushed the hardest for hemp laws because he was a newspaper man and had all his money wrapped up in logging. When hemp paper is cheaper and easier to make

    My friend son was taking cannibis oil when he was being treated for a stage 3 brain tumor. It bought him almost another year and he got his motor skills back. Time to change the marijuana laws regarding medicinal use. The genie is out of the bottle already so lets do it right
