I'm sorry but I feel the avg person who uses marijuana is also involved in the use of various other substances. It should only be available for medical purposes only, that's it and not set up so anybody can just purchase it legally. 9 years ago from a Republican in Poway, CA
No we have enough problems with alcohol addiction and don't need to add a new product to the menu. If you legalize it then the private sector should be able to fire employees who are users and they should not get any government assistance once fired.…. 9 years ago from a Libertarian in Camden, SC
Yes, legalize it..tax it..and regulate it instead of criminalizing it. Also, immediately free all citizens jailed for marijuana offenses. This would bring in money on taxes and save money by getting people out of the prisons. 9 years ago from a Democrat in Prior Lake, MN
Yes, BUT there is a special strain of such narcotic developed that eliminates the key chemical (THC) for drug abuse. Such strain, if asked for should only be allowed for cancer patients and only after psychological exam. 9 years ago from a Green in Fayette, MO
Yes, but safeguards need to be in place first. For example, law enforcement needs equipment that will determine whether or not a suspect is under the influence of cannabis. Testing for metabolites in the bloodstream in inaccurate and unfair. 9 years ago from a Republican in Vincennes, IN

I deal with people everyday who are addicted to drugs; regular marijuana users are significantly affected mentally (memory/thought processes/motivation,etc) over a long period of time. it also affects their ability to drive, operate machinery etc. If you legalize…. 9 years ago from a Republican in Grand Rapids, MI
3 unbiased healthcare professionals would need to recommend it, person should be licensed to smoke it meaning a test like to drive a car, person must know all the laws and pass the test. Not tax deductible ever as medical like alcohol. No license, no pot.…. 9 years ago from a Republican in Eugene, OR
Yes. But employers are allowed to demand drug free employees as a criteria for employment. Employers can require testing and allowed to terminate employees for using.
BTW, the medical pot is BS. Such a tiny fraction would classify for that, but we all know it's party time!. 9 years ago from a Republican in Clinton, IA
No. Not until there is a way to test if someone is high on the spot, as a breathalyzer does for alcohol. Then legalize, tax, and regulate it for individuals over 21. 9 years ago from a Democrat in Kalamazoo, MI

Yes, but the FDA should have the power to regulate advertising of chemical substances put into the body, much like bans on TV ads for cigarettes. (This would probably require an amendment to not overstep the First Amendment. 9 years ago from a Green in Slingerlands, NY
Not unless there are thing in place like instant tests to see if someone is currently under the influence to determine they are DUI.

Eliminate all prohibition laws regarding plants and other substances. Prohibition failed for alcohol, it has failed for plant and other materials, and the free market should control the market for those materials just like it does for so many others. 9 years ago from a Republican in Meridian, ID
Yes, but it should be very heavily regulated. My proposed regulations are as follows
1) Can only be prescribed to terminal ill patients w/o a chance of recovery, for example hospice patients.
2) They have to smoke it in a designated area of the building on site and can't leave with the drug. This will prevent distribution to minors and make sure they aren't contributing to the drug trade.
3) Set limits that strictly control the amount, and frequency of refills.
This reduces the chance of drug abuse from an individual.
4) Employees who work at facilities are give the prescription over the patient to smoke must be checked and searched to ensure non leaves the premises. The sites that grow Marijuana must comply to the before mentioned regulations and both the growing sites and distributions centers are susceptible to closure upon violation of any regulation. 9 years ago from a Republican in Sterling Heights, MI

Yes! Legalize, regulate, tax and treat marijuana like our other legal drugs, such as alcohol, tobacco, caffeine and prescription drugs with severe penalties for lawbreakers. 10 years ago from a Republican in Tucson, AZ
I think it should be sold and taxed but used at home. Use of the drug anywhere out side the user's main place of residency should be illegal. If it remains illegal, then police should ticket people for possession of the drug the same as a traffic ticket.…. 10 years ago from a Republican in Stafford, TX
