Should we decriminalize the possession and use of marijuana?

so...should we decriminalize the possession and use of marijuana?

i was just reading THIS STORY and figured we might as well discuss this too.

Quote:
Overland Park man charged after police find 96 pot plants in basement

Johnson County prosecutors on Wednesday charged Joseph H. Radetsky, 43, with cultivating marijuana, illegally possessing prescription narcotics, not having a drug tax stamp for the marijuana, and two counts of possessing drug paraphernalia.

He had his first court appearance Wednesday.

Johnson County deputies arrested Radetsky on Tuesday after raiding a home where he lived in the 9700 block of Craig Street, deputies said.

The plants were growing in water and nutrients and were of different sizes and stages of development, they said.
Do we as a society agree that this is a good use of our tax dollars, particularily in these tough economic times?

I doubt the OP police have that many other things to do, but in general I think it's a waste.

I wonder what all the people who make a living in the drug trade today would do. Go to college?

Yes. Doesn't personally matter to me since I dont use it, but what we are doing now is stupid. There are two things that make sense in my mind.

Either we completely legalise pot and allow the manufacture, sale, and use of marijuana...

...or we should start sending people to prison for producing and using tobacco and alchohol, two substances which are both a HELL of a lot more dangerous than weed.

Keep the harder drugs which can sicken and kill you a lot faster than the above 3 illegal without a prescription.

If it helps pull California out of debt you will see a lot of other states follow.

not sure why we need to tax the hell out of it. at least no more than the ridiculous cigarette tax.

and i'm pretty sure you can't justify a major tax on weed cause it doesn't cause the "health problems that society has to pay for" like cigs and alcohol.

I think it needs to be proposed that way so more people will be on board with legalizing it. Use as an incentive to get passed. Most people will be on board if they know revenue will be used to help something else in need ie gambling used to help education.

Pretty much. Decriminalisation is being killed by the old people who still remember "reefer madness" in the back of their decrepit brains. We can wait another 20 or 30 years for them to die, but this is the only real plausible way to decriminalise MJ anywhere right now.

Can you imagine what state's bugets would look like if they took away alcohol and gambling? With all the problems with education, I wonder what it would look like without money from the lottery?
Off the top of my head restaurants, bars, parties esp. college, social gatherings and meeting opposite sex, gambling, sporting events in general, even the act of tailgating would all be a completely different experience and economy without alcohol. I think mary jane would be more profitable than alcohol and boost many other industies as well.
