Guys, before the whole "Yeah but people who smoke are gonna end up killing people by accident in car crashes and stuff" arguments start, keep in mind that the same thing happens with alcohol, but, as Prohibition showed us, people are still going to use it regardless. Additionally, the weed-related deaths will be much less, if at all. Just because it's legal doesn't mean people can get as much as they want and smoke themselves to death. Keep in mind:
1. Colorado citizens can buy up to an ounce a day.
2. Non-residents of Colorado can only buy ¼ ounce a day.
3. There's a $50 fine for open cannabis containers in a car, just like with alcohol.
4. The Cannabis tax is about 31.4%.
5. You can only legally smoke on private property.
6. Colorado is predicted to make $600 million in the first year.
7. The first $40 million is going toward education.
8. You must be licensed to sell it.
9. It is illegal to take it out of state.
10. You can carry no more than an ounce.

It's not like Colorado has just announced this weed free-for-all where everybody can go and smoke as much as they want wherever they want and get it from anybody. See this as an experiment; if it works then we'll get a good indication of what nationwide legalization could be like socially and how much it'll help our economy.

Siafu ants in africa are one of the few things that hunts humans proprietorially.
trapjaw ants in south america eat everything in sight. even a human if we **** up and get in their way
jackjumper ants can kill a person with a single sting not toxic per se, but 80% of humans have major alergic reaction to this ****

there was an ant colony in australia that they filled with a plaster cement type compound and extracted. the entire was the size of a house. the number of ants could easily drag a human down to their depths never to be seen again

some ant species have evolved puerly for ant-to-ant warfare. where some ants are suicide bombers. literally. they go into battle with another ant colony and explode spraying alkali all over the enemy ants melting them.

forgot thes sauce but some poor bastard once said that if ants had nukes. theyd destroy the planet in a week. they are some of the most aggressive and violant ************ in all of nature

I'm so sick of this "hurr durr, smoking and drinking kill more people the weed" argument. Just because jumping off the roof of a house is probably safer than jumping off a sky scraper does not mean you're obligated to jump off the house. If your true concern was for people's safety, you wouldn't promote either.

What people forget is that the people who are in control of whether or not certain substances are legal or not are a bunch of suits who couldn't give to ***** about weed because it has no impact on their lives. When they hear pro-marijuana arguments like this, it's like some spoiled brat complaining that "Dave's parents let him get a tattoo of a swastika on his forehead , all I want is a confederate flag on my ass!"

I'll be honest, I couldn't give a **** if weed was legalized tomorrow, I'm not particularly interested either way, but if you are, you need to step up your argument.

#33 to #8 - anon (01/04/2014) [-]
For me it's not about safety. Yeah, weed is bad for you. I don't smoke it. But I believe that if we legalize it, crime will go down since so many drug cartels will no longer have any business, and the police will have more time to go after real criminals. Also, the money from taxing it can be put toward education and other important public works projects.

tl;dr - I don't give two ***** about smoking weed, but I think that legalizing it will be a good thing for our country.
User avatar #59 to #33 - TATTYBOJANGLES (01/04/2014) [-]
The idea that crime would reduce just because weed is legal doesn't really hold up. First, most drug cartels don't simply provide just one type of drug, (in this case weed) they have their fingers in all kinds of sweet druggy pies like, meth, heroin, cocaine, etc., so the idea that they would simply stop because one became legal doesn't make sense.

Second, you're assuming that serious organised criminals would just sort of be OK with their business being taken away from them. Legal dealers who happen to supply to the cartel's former clients probably wouldn't receive a warm welcome.

Also, drug related law enforcement wouldn't just disappear because marijuana became legal, there would still be regulations and restrictions on its use and production. It's true that the majority of people would prefer to do things legally, but what about those who don't? So you'd still have to pay for the police to investigate and arrest people for dealing stronger,unregulated weed. Then on top of that, there's still the crimes the police are dealing with now, like people driving while high.

Again, I'd just like to say that I honestly don't care if it winds up being legalized, it makes literally no difference to my life. It just annoys me that people have such feeble arguments to back up something they care for so strongly.

The only reasoning needed as to why marijuana should be legal is that it should not be illegal.

I dont think drug cartels make a lot of sales to all of the kids in high school. (the number of people that bought from them, customers, would decrease exponentially therefore less sales by them.
User avatar #1 - Crusader (01/04/2014) [-]
Yes, but we have yet to conclusively learn how many car accidents/accidental deaths and injuries are caused by people under the influence of marijuana.

Not to mention we still need to know exactly how powerful the carcinogens are (yes, there are carcinogens in pot).

While I do agree it is safer than other substances and can be used positively, it is not harmless.
#128 to #1 - shrolen (01/04/2014) [-]
Just because it might not be good for the one using it, doesn't mean it should be illegal.

And I really am not against weed. I am all for the idea of legalizing it. People just need to stop caring about it so much. There's nothing wrong with smoking it. And there's nothing wrong with not smoking it. People just need moderation. We abuse so much **** . It's bad for us. If you smoke weed more than you actually work or go to school, you're a piece of **** . I'm sorry. That's just how it is. Use but don't abuse. Moderation is key.
User avatar #141 to #124 - cosmicapprentice (01/05/2014) [-]
Well in that case I think it's more about an individual decision/responsibility, I have a friend who can smoke almost a ziploc bag of weed in a day, and leave almost nothing for the rest of her week, she smokes a **** ton of weed and I'm not even joking, every time I talk to her she's smoking pot. And she's actually one of the most intelligent and cultivated persons I know, she get's straight A's at every subject at her school (except for mathematics, she just sucks at that). So, as I said, I think it's more about an individual decision to smoke it and a personal responsibility, I don't think that the arguments saying that "stupid" people will do crazy **** while high are justified, since weed mostly puts you to sleep and eat a lot rather than make you really euphoric.

Well the fact that my aunt and 10 other past dead family members could have been saved by its cancer curing properties would be 1 reason why it should be legalized.

Weed doesn't kill cancer though, man. It eases the pain and helps those with cancer eat, which I think is great. But it doesn't kill it. Chemotherapy is the way to kill it. Which, sometimes, doesn't work either.

User avatar #140 to #139 - redcookiemonster (01/05/2014) [-]
Which is the reason why I am pro legalization. It's not only safer than any other drug out there, it actually ******* HELPS PEOPLE. And somehow, it's banned because of some racist propaganda from the 1930's saying **** like
'Cannabis, when smoked by negros, causes them to want to rape white women.'
And I **** you not, that was actually one of the leading reasons why it was banned.
User avatar #145 to #140 - mrjunebug (01/05/2014) [-]
I am pro-legalization as well. I'm just saying. More and more people care about it's legalization for their own drug related reasons like getting high, than they are for the actual medical reason. Being so defensive for a drug that can cure cancer is great. I respect that. But being so defensive for a drug only that you're going to use to get high is kinda sad. I don't mean to argue with you, man. I do get what you're saying.

Stop this **** . Everyone knows it's pretty much impossible to overdose from marijuana. I'm so god damn tired of people digging up reasons why "weed is so good for you."

I smoke. Not a lot, but on a social basis, and the only reason I want weed to be legal is so I can get high legally. I don't think I should be punished for smoking in the safety of my or a friend's house and eating a ******** of cheetos. I'm not gonna tell you it cures cancer, or it's safe, or it's healthy, because I honestly don't give a **** about any of that whether it's true or not.
User avatar #25 to #17 - stickmansam (01/04/2014) [-]

Because beer is literally what built modern society. Everyone got dysentery from drinking the water in middle age europe, and you had to boil the water in the process of making beer.

No, I'm saying that if it's controlled ( like only this much per buyer) we could stimulate the economy, and people wouldn't have such trouble trying to get medication. Both. Almost like, in a way, a vitamin supplement? Like you ca use it recreational or with a doctors order. And if kids get a hold of it, the person they received it from will lose rights to buy and use for a time period.
