Marijuana legalization is on the ballot in several states. Would you vote to legalize and regulate marijuana sales and usage in your state?

I love that this poll ended with 420 votes...

Banning drugs only benefits cartels, dealers, and drug traffickers.
Legalizing it makes it safe and puts traffickers out of business.
Furthermore, although I have no interest in drugs myself, the individual's body is not the government's business.

A much better alternative to the "war on drugs" whoch leads to countless imprisonments and deaths each year would be to, rather, lefalize drugs but campaign as to why they are bad for you. It has worked before in other countries, why not America?

If people are going to do something anyways, why not let people do it in a safe, taxable way.

It's a lot more dangerous than tobacco and alcohol, although it should be legalized. Give people the right to choose.

The fu€£ing tax revenues alone are a huge incentive. Plus one less retarded reason to jail someone.

Colorado is seeing only about a third of the tax revenue it expected. The black market for pot there is alive and well, and people are still going to jail for it.

As a fire fighter I can't smoke, but I don't know why I support the legalization of it. I've been on medical calls and I just know it's harmless. So honestly it's not an issue for me. Legalize it.

Long term use is actually extremely harmful to proper brain development. I don't believe for a moment you're actually a firefighter and haven't seen that first hand. As a first responder I certainly have.

I don't smoke anything, nor do I want to. That being said, people do, and legalizing it will probably be a logical choice, but if I had to, I wouldn't be able bring myself to vote for it. Not sure why.

I don't smoke it and I don't like too either. but people are going to smoke it either way. its not as bad as people claim it is. why not make it legal and help it boost the economy?

Legalize definitely. Regulate no. Let the market regulate it.

I would, but I think it will be several years before we even get medical marijuana on the ballot, and I'm not sure that would even pass.

Do, did, and done. We are really doing a poor job of implementing it, but it has been legal here for a long time now. I'd have much preferred we decriminalized it, treating it like any other plant you might grow I your garden. Baby steps...

Yes.

Driving while stoned is my only reservation but that's not enough to justify a continued ban.

Decriminalize, not legalize. No tax payer money for weed.

I'm curious at what difference you see between decriminalizing and legalizing something?

If you decriminalize it, people won't be arrested or charged for selling, possessing, or smoking. If you legalize it, government funds such as Medicaid, welfare, and food stamps can be used to buy it.

Not necessarily true. You can't use food stamps to buy alcohol or cigarettes. www.fns.usda.gov/snap/eligible-food-items

A number of loopholes would need to be closed, as they were with cigarettes and alcohol. I guess I just don't have faith in the government nor bureaucrats to do so.

Yes. I don't like smoking anything, nor do I think it's a good idea to smoke anything. But legalizing it won't hurt our country or society as it is already widely available. And now it can be regulated and taxed which may do some good.

Too late, but no, from the state that gave you Obama, for which I apologize.
