Question:
In a continual search for ways to raise tax revenues for the state governments another unusual attempt is being talked about for the United States. If Marijuana was legalized and taxed, it could raise billions of dollars per year in taxation and eliminate billions of dollars of costs to jail persons on Marijuana prison sentences. Do you think Marijuana should be legalized or not?   What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

Personally I dont care what someone does in their own home.   I am just concerned if they do drugs and drive cars or work in jobs that demand high concentration.  Alicia B.  Jersey Girl

Might as well let people have drugs like Marijuana, it is no different than proabition for alcohol in the 1920's.  If the people want it, they will find a way to buy it, so you might as well tax it.  Lawrence Bellows

Why not, beer,wine and whiskey is legal. Not only would it raise tax revenues, but it would also bolster the economy by everyone getting the munchies and buying more food.  chuck merica  Omaha, Ne

 I do not think it should be legalized as I feel the selling and distribution of marijuana would be a marketing nightmare. I feel there would always be a black market for a stronger product. It should be made such a minor offence for the user that it is not a black mark on one's record. Similar to a parking ticket if at all. Still leaving the distribution to dealers who would be prosecuted if they were selling stronger more illegal products.   Susan Perle  Toronto Canada

It should be legalized to drive the criminals out of business. The cost of the drug war is higher than any damage caused by use. We can't stop drug useage so why create an income stream for criminals that can't pay tax if they wanted to. We turn our streets into shooting fields and make work for cops, lawyers, and prison guards.  Greg  Palm Bay, FL

No, Don't legalize it. next they will want to legalize other drugs. The goverment needs to stop spending our money.Stop taxing us to death.If the goverment would get smaller,and mine there own busness the whole world would be better.Less goverent less taxes. Let each state govern their self. We don't need the feds to govern us.  Stephen Goodwin   Sedalia.Mo

 Yes it should be legalized, strictly controlled and heavely taxed. It is not as adictive or harmful to a persons health as alcohol. If alcohol was discovered today it would be illegal. It is the most powerful drug you can buy without a prescription. I have never used
Marijuana, I tried it, didn't care for it. I am a recovering alcoholic and I smoke cigarettes. Our government spends more money on drug enforcement and incarsartion of offenders than most other programs. David Gentles   Lansing, Michigan

No, any drug that is taken souly for the mind altering side effects is wrong. However, regulating it by perscription only would be acceptable. Has medicinal properties when used properly. Regulation needed to control the authentisity of the perscription.  Sandra J. Allan  Winter Haven, FL
