Should Marijuana be Legalized?

I'm curious as to what the consensus among posters here is.

Should marijuana be made legal?

Some interesting stats regarding political parties and age brackets;

Poll coming.

Hell no. Smoking pot makes one dumber than they already are. Think its a coincidence Democrats support legalizing it? Of course not.

We do have the United States Code of federal law to address just that. This is a failure in the scheduling of marijuana.

As of right now the R's are outvoting the D's for legalization 2-1.

I wasn't making that statement for weed. See how I voted in the poll.
I made it for "some" drugs in response to GC's basis for what should be legal. This is where I veer off from libertarians whereby I don't consider myself one...though many think I am. But as a general category of thing--not regarding weed.

Slow and dumb. I'm all for that due to the slow part...it just might prevent them from getting to the polls on time.

Well, gee, I thought you just made that claim several posts back.
So, you're speaking for your country in the poll then.

EDIT: Okay,I went back and you said "illegal."

Sure, I get you. I was just saying that we have a mechanism in place to address that issue.

I find it incredible how often some Republicans around here turn to insulting democrats. Not that I'm a democrat, but it's quite incredible.

That's not an insult if'n you noticed. It was a comment about the effects of weed and hoping it would have the effect on Ds. Talk about irony, I'm seeing a lot about the end of Republicans and saw a lot of Bush bashing earlier. Oh, and there's no need for you to be a Democrat since you're not in the American system. You seem to lean toward statism
though.

I dug around before when looking at this, and as I recall there was someone in the FDA potentially holding up the issue on a national basis. At first glance it looks like the Attorney General has substantial authority concerning the scheduling of controlled substances. The POTUS is a D. The AG is a D. If it was just a matter of the D's wanting it legalized...wouldn't it have already happened?
