Lanning, open your eyes. Kids are dying in our very own neighborhoods. Ireland? Geez, I wish I could be as oblivious as you.

I can;t believe that we're still having this arguement as a country. If alcohol, and tobacco are legal, then pot should be legal we well. It's certaily less dangerous than alcohol. Legalize it already!

OHHH Jill it's because of people like you.. and I'm sure they drank alcohol too what's ur point why stop there.. If weed was legalized and could be obtained at a medical dispensary then they would not have a get it through a drug dealer (Black market) who will also offer them heroin coke guns ect while they are picking up weed!! Weed is harmless not that it's good for them but it's harmless .. don't compare it to heroin or say it's a gateway way drug that's 90's talk. If so lets legalize alcohol too
