IMO, moderate daily use is no worse than the moderate daily use of alcohol and probably less harmful.

Of course.

Present problem: Marijuana Use/Possession is still a crime in most States and under Federal Law.

Therefore... Most State/Local Law Enforcement Agency's, including Federal Law Enforcement Agency's. Can allow present users to be employed by them.

Now that it is being allowed, need some tests to see what blood levels of THC begins to impair driving and how fast the THC level decays. This so those who enjoy can do so in a reasonably responsible manner. I can see weed being marketed with something akin to proof or ABV numbers.

If legalized: The testing and compliance with all State and Federal Regulations will be so expensive. That the Mom and Pops will be out of business.

Long Live BIG WEED! AKA Tobacco Companies.

How much longer before we can legalized over-the-counter recreational opioids, amphetamines and barbiturates? Although, the problem I see here is we'll begin losing democrat voters through darwinism.

The problem is not between legalization and criminalization.

It is that there is a percentage of the human race. Will always 'drift' towards the use of "opioids, amphetamines and barbiturates". Or whatever the 'Drugs of Choice' are available throughout history.

True. I think I read somewhere that it is about 10% of the human population that are addicted to some form of chemical substances.

So, just seeing if I understand:

Legalizing something so that people can do it = Centralized all-powerful government control
Criminalizing something so that people are convicted and put in jail for it = Freedom?

That's some sterling "logic" there, Guy. This sort of thinking may be a side effect of that dangerous brain-damaging, legalized, all-powerful-centralized government-regulated drug called alcohol... you should steer clear of that stuff as if you are using it, it may have the same effect you think cannabis does.

In my opinion. Guy, as those presently called The Alt Left, and others.

See conspiracies in what, or who, they disagree with.

You have it exactly Mr. Kevvy!

Because if it wasn't the ACLU would be good because they fight to legalize things and oppose centralized all-powerful government control.
Criminalizing things and making prison sentences longer panders to corrections officer unions and makes them stronger letting them take control of the government!

Again, the Gub'ment can't control those who 'choose to use' without control of the source. Grow ur own and there's no control by the feds. 😁

If Legalized.

The Massive Federal and State Regulating Authorities, in addition to the IRS, will control all. As they always have.
