And I Say Keep It Coming

Got through my birthday and a fun, relaxing long weekend with my sanity know, in a relative way. Work is stupid crazy right now. I keep telling myself that is a good thing, but some days that is hard to appreciate. But even with the stupid crazy I am down for some Choose and Defend Wednesday!

Today I thought I'd bring up a topic that seems to get some discussions going. I am going to be honest and say the subject has me conflicted and I am very interested in hearing what you have to say. So, I ask you - Should the personal use of marijuana be legalized?



Not often that we do a yes or no question here! As I said, I'd love your Choose and most importantly Defend. Not in the sense of you know...defend...but more like...expand on the reason for your choice. Thanks! And have a very winning Wednesday.

Just like any other drug, people are going to abuse it. I say legalize. There will be more control. More money will be made 'legally'. The biggest problem I had with the ballot item the last time on the CA ballot was the argument that there really isn't a good measure yet to know when it's not ok to drive or do some kind of similar activity. If they can say what too much is...that would make things a lot easier.

NoRegrets: Thanks for your response! I tend to agree with you, for what it's worth.

I'm mixed on it. On the one hand, de-criminalizing it would take it out of the hands of gangs and cartels. On the other, my worry is that research coming out on marijuana use in young people is pretty damning, in terms of the permanent decrease in IQ in developing brains.

Secret: That's true. Hopefully there would be strict penalties for under 18 or 21, as with alcohol.
