the real question is will he allow states to legalize it if they think it will be a good thing? for a man of the people, obama sure seems out of touch on this subject.

he doesn't want to legalize it because it would loosen the control they have on you. Cannabis is completly safe and has hundreds of uses including fuel, food, clothing, medicine and plastic.

A 12yr old could easily debate anybody against the arguments of legalization because they're ludicrous. It was only made illegal because of political reasons not to protect us.
You make some great points, but I would'nt want to see cannabis used for fuels, food, clothing, etc....cause it would force the price of it up, unless the supply increased.

And I don't see a problem with that answer by BO, it's not a good idea to spur the economy from a recession, but it could be a great economic stabilizer for state economies.

Plus right now might not be the best time to engage his feeble minded nation and media in a conversation about the legalization of cannabis.

You don't have much experience or knowledge about marijuana do you?
are you aware how fast this s**t grows?
it wouldn't force prices for s**t...

when it comes to marijuana it's virtually infinite supply...

If any country were to make cannabis legal they would face trade restrictions from the u.s.
can you please direct me to anything backing this up?

the article said that no one will be arrested by the feds if it is allowed on the local level...

so yes, i believe he would say go for it.

in his mind, its a political move. not having the blame put on him if it happens. local governments take the fire, not him. the crazy conservative f**ks in this country can cry to their state government if they oppose it. obama can throw his hands up like "hey, i didn't do it!"


this whole situation is unsettling to me. i really didn't appreciate the demeanor in which he took that question today. he joked it off when this is some serious s**t.

the arguments against weed legalization are just so absurd that it drives me mad. criminalization affects so many lives. the number of people (like myself) who have to worry about their employment being at risk every time they blaze up. the prisons filled with prisoners for non-violent weed charges. the drug wars being fought and the families that affects. the trillions we waste in f!ghting the "problem..."

i think its nice there will be no more raids if a state gives the OK to pot. s**t, at least its something. problem is though, people in this country are so damn apathetic that we will not demand legalization. we will just wish, wish away...

obama gets a D+ today from me. he has had a lot of D+ days lately.

i'm pissed he didn't take the question more seriously when he himself was a pot smoker and there is video on the internet of him saying he is a proponent of decriminalization. look, i get it. its politics. but he promised "change" and i ain't seeing a whole lot of it.

obama agrees with decriminalization. it isn't safe politically to legalize weed so of course he isn't going to do that. neither is congress. mindset is changing in regards to weed as time goes on. the future is looking good though.

it's basic economics....resources are allocated to their most valuable use. If growers (no matter how infinite the number may be) get more money for growing cannabis used for fuel than he does when it's used for recreational or medicinal purposes, then he will sell it for fuel. That will cause the price to rise because those wanting it for recreational purposes will have to pay for it to get the grower to produce for that purpose. Just look at the price of corn when it began to be used wide scale in ethanol production.

It has more to do with immigration than it has to do with safety... everyone knows pot isnt as harmful as people make it seem...


There have been plenty of documentaries that prove pot is illegal because people in the southwest during the great depression wanted illegal Mexican immigrants to leave so they wouldn't have to compete for jobs...


Look it up
true although im not a smoker i think ppl still wouldnt know how to act using pot

thing is if they did legalize it more accidents and reckless actions will happen for 1 weed has an effect on u I know i havent smoked before in my life but been around it so much that I know some ppl dont act normally so then they cant be responsible for there actions and then blame weed then that doesnt get us anywhere

Even if Marijuana was legal nobody is going to buy it because it will be taxed. Everybody will still go to the same supplier.

Who is going going to go to the gas station and say let me get $30 on pump 6, and 3 grams.

north america i get. everywhere else i don't. social control is the only logical explanation in my mind.
In canada if ure caught with less then an ounce u just get slapped with a fine. Ive never talked to anyone that did jailtime over weed. Now if your dumb enough to walk around with an oz then your an idiot. My brother was caught smoking a blunt with his friends and all they did was call my parents which could have been a lot worse had it been in america.

my thoughts exactly. There would be so much drawback within the decision. However, it would be a great way to boost the economy considering it's quite the popular recreational drug. Might as well tax it and make a few pennies off of it.

^ preeeetty much.

that's it. nothing else much to say. we pretty much need a genius hippie president for weed to become legal on a federal level.

America decides what's illegal. Read about the completely harmless therapy drug 2-CB. Some American guy decides he has SO much trouble getting it up that he'd better take 20X the dose, and then calls the FDA when he starts tripping balls. A year later America's pressuring everycountry in the world to illegalize it. Except for Spain, it mostly succeeded.

Good Ban Marijuana forever!!!!

yea f**k you dude, weed is awesome. i think it should get legalized.


but if they did it prolly wouldnt be smoking the same weed that you find on the streets, they'd prolly add chemicals and s**t to it like they do to tobacco.
