    How is using and possessing pot anywhere close to the danger to society that cigarettes, that kill 440,000 people every year? Almost 40,000 of which are from second-hand smoke...

    Just posted a similar msg elsewhere, but why not legalize this stuff, tax it and regulate it like alcohol and tobacco? What's the problem? tobacco leaves...marijuana leaves...are all just leaves.
