Sumner Newscow weekly poll: The legalization marijuana question

first_imgDo you think Kansas should follow Colorado’s lead and legalize marijuana? Yes, absolutely. Absolutely not. Let’s see how it works out in Colorado first before passing any laws here. Kansas should legalize medical marijuana but not for recreational use. Keep it illegal, just decriminalize it. Let’s go the other way and make marijuana laws even tougher than they are now Colorado’s marijuana law is too strict. Let’s allow marijuana smoking anyplace, anywhere, anytime.

Hemp can be used to make over 10,000 products and has been historically intertwined with man for the last 10,000 years. Some misinformed military leader made marijuana illegal because he didn’t like it. Lets face it cigarettes kill 400,000+ people a year in the United States. Marijuana kills 0. Lets face it people, it is an industry that helps people, creates renewable energy, creates jobs, provides thousands of products everybody can use and generates tax revenue out of thin air. As long as it is regulated to 21 and older and not while driving it shouldn’t be a big deal. All the uptight people who are against it need to sit down, smoke a J, munch on some cheetos and chill out. I don’t understand why anybody would ever oppose it because the positives far far far outweigh any negatives that one can come up with.

Time to pull your head out of the sand and understand this is a medicinal plant you can not overdose on. It is not a gate way drug as alcohol is. Ask any cop if they would rather be around drunks or people smoking pot. Drunks are beligerant and aggressive where pot smokers are mellow and easy to get along with. I have experimented (smoked pot) with marijuana for over 42 years and have never been in trouble with the law.

It affects your judgment. And I’ll be the first to turn you in.

The fact that it has so many positive properties is what needs to be looked at. You have the choice to drink alcohol when you are 21 years old. Nobody is going to force the entire population to start smoking because marijuana because it is legal. It is an incredibly harmless substance. Ted Logan you sound like an individual who is opposed to anything that people might enjoy be it gatorade, marijuana or enjoying a beer. Comparing it to rattlesnakes, sword swallowing and whatever stupid examples you used is just assanine. Nobody is going to be “obligated” to do anything they don’t want to do.

People end up spending more time in prison for marijuana than for murdering somebody. Sounds like we need to take all the Republicans on a field trip to Jamaica “don’t forget your Lightning McQueen lunchbox” to show them that marijuana is a way of life for some people and it brings them closer with Jah. This is no different than you having communion for Christians. Stop acting like Carrie Nation and adapt to change. This will help our state on so many levels from tax revenue, job creation, manufacturing jobs, lawyers, accountants and people who might not of been able to work will have something they can do to contribute to our society. This will ultimately eliminate pot dealers which isn’t that what you want anyways? Report Reply 3 replies · active 344 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down HamSammich · 344 weeks ago Jeffrey Miron, a senior lecturer at Harvard University who in 2010 studied the likely impacts of drug legalization, finding that about $8.7 billion would be saved on law enforcement and another $8.7 billion would be generated from taxes on marijuana. Accounting for inflation, that would add up to about $20 billion now, he said. Now you tell me how it doesn’t make sense to legalize just on that fact. Mr i’ve never brought a Pen home from work (theft), accidently ran a red light, jaywalked or drank before the age of 21(or 18 if your an old fogey). There are so many laws in this country now I am sure you don’t even know when you break one. What happens when it is legal Ted? You going to go hide in your hole and never come out in fear of all of the mellow dorito munchin potheads roaming the streets lol.

Because the people selling any street drugs aren’t checking ID’s. Studies have already shown that it is significantly easier for minors to obtain illegal drugs than it is for them to obtain alcohol. That’s why regulation works and prohibition doesn’t. They ended alcohol prohibition because it simply does not work. All the prohibition of alcohol did was create a black market which provided criminals with more ways to become filthy rich.

Just look at some of our Olympians that were smoking pot all the time. Guess you cant argue that point. Yeah we have some losers that smoke pot just like alcoholics. We all know some but don’t hold it against everyone. Hell we have non smokers and drinkers every where that are losers. Its a common thread in our society. I have smoked with cops on the WPD years ago. Doctors and Nurses, EMT’s you will never pull the wool over my eyes.

Also make very strict laws about driving under the influence. Report Reply 0 replies · active 343 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!
