Great...So even more losers are going to congregate to this state.

What is the difference between a drunk and a stoner at a stop sign? The drunk guy runs it and the stoner waits for it to turn green!

And remember kids, don't eat marijauna, or you'll get a 'pot belly.'

Laugh or cry.

Actually, our population has decreased, causing us to lose one of the idiots we send to the House of Representatives.

You forgot to mention that the drunk killed a family of four while running that stop sign.

Over the years I have lost friends and family members to alcohol, whether by overdose, misuse, or drunk driving. Do you know how many friends I have lost to cannabis? ZERO. A majority of my friends that smoke “dope” are successful, happy, and productive. My alcoholic friends, the ones that are still alive, are either in jail, on their way, or destructive miserable wretches. So who are the real losers here? Those who ignore alcohol and support the ban on cannabis or those who want freedom to make decisions for themselves and freedom to live with the consequences?

I hate alcohol and I dont use it (despite my screen name) yet the difference is I would never take away someone’s freedom to use or abuse it. Nobody is forcing you to like it yet you are willing to support imprisonment in a lame effort to combat private use of a plant.

I believe in choice and consequences. It is not my business what you do or whether you destroy your own life on drugs and alcohol. While you focus on cannabis with drug war language and propaganda, the real issue of addiction and its devastating effects are ignored. Since many of you are so concerned about public health that you are willing to ban a substance, how about we start with junk food? More people are addicted to food and its negative effects on our society are far greater, yet I dont hear a call from the drug war proponents to ban soda and junk food. You seem to be fine letting people kill themselves with twinkies, soda, and booze so what is the difference?

If you care so much about public health, ignoring booze and junkfood is complete intellectual dishonesty. Moral righteousness is not won through lies nor can it be forced by the barrel of a gun or threats of imprisonment. At the end of the day, addiction is the real issue and thanks to the war on drugs, it has been almost completely ignored. At the end of the day the truth still stands.
