    Which studies are those anti-liberty-II? Or should I call you big-government-maka-II? I know people who ocassionally smoke marijuana socially who have done so for years without moving on to "harder" stuff. That gateway theory is a load of bull if you ask me. It probably has much more to do with socio-economic issues than marijuana. Is alcohol a gateway drug too? Maybe we should outlaw that? Oh yeah, we did, that didn't work out too well the last time. All it did was lead to organized crime, black markets, poisonings from unregulated booze, etc. Now where else have I heard about that kind of thing happening...?

    Keep smoking it 27615. Drug studies show that most people start with marijuana and go to bigger drugs. Dont say it never hurt anyone - drugs ruin people's lives every day in this country.

    Nothing will happen to whoever it belongs to ...this country is too easy on druggies.

    In Uzbekistan, 1 kilo gets the death sentence.

    We put up with too much garbage. of course, our liberals can be thanked for that...don't be too hard.

    Miami was built on coke profits in the early to late 1980's. It was one of the very few cities that grew economically during that time. Check out the documentary "Cocaine Cowboys"

    FROM WIKI: The film reveals that much of the economic growth which took place in Miami during this time period was a benefit of the drug trade. As members of the drug trade made immense amounts of money, this money flowed in large amounts into legitimate businesses. As a result, drug money indirectly financed the construction of many of the modern high-rise buildings in southern Florida. Later, when law enforcement pressure drove many major players out of the picture, many high-end stores and businesses closed because of plummeting sales.

    I'm surprised people feel that drugs should be illegal. I don't like "druggies" but who am I to tell people what they can and cannot do, as long as no harm comes from the "druggie". If the "druggie" get's so wasted they commit a crime throw them in jail for whatever crimes they commit!!!

    I do think that most drugs are bad and don't care that they are illegal because I don't do them or assoicate with people who do except for marijuana....THAT SHOULD BE LEGALIZED and SHOULD OF NEVER BEEN MADE ILLEGAL IN THE FIRST PLACE!...3 million dollars worth of pot would of provided income to whoever owned it plus stimulate the ecomomy when everybody that buys it gets the munchies and nobody get's hurt with marijuana b/c, besides smoke in general, isn't bad for you and it certainly is better than cigs and alcohol!

    long story short: GOVERNMENT HAS TOO MUCH POWER

    Gotcha Mako, sorry. I did read your last paragraph(appreciated also), which certainly didn't fit the prior so I thought it was a copy that maybe you forgot to " " and I didn't go any further back. I guess you can tell that I have a strong opposition to drugs as well. Thanks for correcting me.
