    Recreational/Medical Marijuana

    Should it be legalized in the entire US? Just medical? What are your thoughts?

    IMO, it should be legalized. Tax the !$#$% out of it for recreational users. People with a medical need get a tax exempt certificate. Restricted to over 21 like alcohol.

    Use some of the tax for marijuana research. We don't know what this plant can do, it has been forbidden.

    Some of the tax for local schools, maybe some for the VA.

    It should be legalized. The applications for marijuana are endless, and most are positive such as pain relief, treatment for anxiety and depression, treating cancer symptoms, the list goes on.

    How MJ came to be criminalized:

    If they taxed it highly, there would be still be a black market for it.

    I have seen videos of Parkinson patients whose muscles are out of control; they cannot move. A few drops to THC oil under tongue, and their bodies return to a near-normal state.

    This subject came to mind when reading about PTSD sufferers ( I am one). Marijuana is being used more and more for relief.

    Perhaps. I think the convenience of legal purchase would negate much it.

    Today, Maine joins seven other states and the District of Columbia that have legalized marijuana for recreational use, despite federal prohibitions on the drug.

    Yes, it should be legalized for recreational use as well. I think it would help cut down on this face eating crap that's out there now. Also, my uncle has Parkinson's and yes, it's amazing how it helps with his tremors.

    Absolutely should be legal for both medical and recreational purposes. Absolutely.

    I think drugs should be decriminalized. That word doesn't imply that the gov't endorses it, just that it's not going to consider it a crime. Treating drugs a crime on par with armed robbery turns many otherwise law-abiding citizens who would be happy to work with authorities to solve murders into criminals. We can admit drugs are dangerous without declaring war on people who use them.

    I watched a PBS piece on Prohibition (I think it was PBS). It is the same darn thing. People will do what they will do.

    Legalize it for medical and recreational purposes. Then tax it - that alone would sure help Oklahoma's awful economy.

    Legalize prostitution while we're at it.

    My take on it is just decriminalize it for personal use. When you get commercial stuff like the tobacco industries in it , you do not know what they are putting in it.

    Just curious if it's legal in Australia. Honest question. I don't know much about Australia other than the Wiggles.
