Response to banned from Kos (Original post)

Thu Nov 22, 2012, 05:19 PM

38. I live in Washington state, and I'm THRILLED!!

I tried a joint about a year back, after not having touched Mary-Jane for 35 years. I get just as goofy and confused as always, so it's not my cup of tea. But I'm all for legalizing it and keeping it legal. Why not???

Look at alcohol for a second. This drug actually KILLS thousands every year, not to mention screws up more lives and families. That's not to say that marijuana might also lead to a few deaths, and maybe even a few thousand lives being negatively affected; but NOTHING like what alcohol has done and continues to do.

Besides, legalizing will literally evaporate the illegal trade...cartels, and the death and destruction that go along with that business.

I'm ALL FOR IT!! Legalize it. And then maybe we can take a look at what to do with cocaine and the other destructive drugs.
