Question

Just curious about everyone's opinions.

FWIW, I couldn't care less. I'm not into it, but if cigarettes and alcohol are legal, you might as well make pot okay, too.

How 'bout you guys?

It doesn't have to be fun to be "fun".

I hate fookin pot heads all drug users for that matter. I had a fooked up and very poor early childhood because of it. I personaly will never use any drug of any kind. Now, I'm all for personal freedom but when something can destructively take over your body, change your mental state and is addictive. It should be illegal. Don't listen to me though I'm an extreamest when it comes to this stuff

I guess I am the odd man out here.

I personally think it should be legal. Keep in mind I have not smoked or taken any ilegal drug since July 28th 1984. Because after all, marijuana is still against the law, I like my job, and my brain is already fried enough as it is.

I think alcohol is a much more destructive drug. But the government makes to much tax money from it to do away with it. Hell, if they could find a way to tax marijuana without pissing everyone off I bet you it would be legal also.

I personally think marijuana will be legal withing the next 10-20 years.

Being a bartender, and a pot smoker *ducks*, I see both sides of this... In my opinion, driving under the influence of alcohol and driving while stoned, are two different things altogether.
I think it should be legal. How many potheads do you see getting into fights compared to drunk people.... Not many. The sale of food would go up as with drinks... and visine stock would go through the roof!!
Now of course, it IS a mind altering drug, and still should not be used while driving! It does slow your reaction times (although I got my best reaction time and ET drag racing the mustang at Moroso, and I was buzzed!!)
But that's another story!!
Unfortunately, there will always be someone that drinks or smokes way too much. They are the ones to watch for.. the addictive personality types... Just be careful out there!!!

I don't thing the world is ready for stoned soccer moms riding in their suv's wiping out any vehicle that gets in their way.

Well, over all alcohol and tobacco are worse for you than dope. More violent crimes involve alcohol than anything else. Tobacco is proven to kill you if you smoke your entire life. Why someone would smoke tobacco is beyond me but.... I am not one to cast stones about sh*t like that.
DUI (Driving Under the Influence) covers driving while stoned not just alcohol. Most have overlooked that fact. Why stop punishing it when caught driving just because it is legal to smoke? Just stiffen the penalties and actually enforce them (this will deter first timers and infrequent violaters). Most of the people who commit DUI are habitual so they don't care anyways. DUI violaters should have jail time. I have no tolerance for it even though several buddies have been busted for it (years ago).

I don't know why this bothered me so, perhaps it is the self-admitted "extremist" attitude that bothers me in general, and how "extremists" effect or at least pester so many other aspects of life, but...

Kyle, you spoke, I listen. I am sure this is a sensitive subject for you but I will not avoid it just because of that fact. Robert said it jokingly, I will not attach a smilely face.
If you had kids would you stop riding motorcycles? There is no doubt riding is addictive and is more dangerous than smoking pot. Have you never gone into the competition mode and hauled ass on you bike? That is an altered mental state from what you normally are in.
I know you don't have kids, a month ago were covered that you were still a virgin, unless things have changed and in that event, congrats. But lets say you have kids and you got into a wreck and died, then what? You children could later grow up and say motorcycles are dangerous, killed their father and effected their childhood and then try have them outlawed. Now the rest of us would have to put up with that for what? Their bad experience? Dude, thats stupid. If I am off base someone say something, but Kyle please check the entirety of what you said.
I will remove myself from my soap box now.
Okay, I lied.
