If you really want to be pissed about weed being illegal, look up "Henry J Anslinger Gore Files"

I heard that the original reason weed was made illegal was because it made white women want black men or something like that.

So you can all blame racism for that.

i thought it was because one person was making paper n' **** from hemp and he was running for president, and another candidate was the owner of a wood factory, so he promised to outlaw it. At least that's what family guy said, and family guy would never lie to me.

there are multiple reasons why marijuana are and should be illegal. It makes it hard for many people (not all, but a majority) to do things properly. Same with alcohol, its a terrible substance that should no be allowed in the hands of irresponsible people.

IN SHORT, I AM A NON-WEED SMOKER AND I KNOW THAT LEGALIZING IT BRINGS IN TAXES AND ALSO ***** OVER THE DRUG CARTELS

Yeah, see, they tried banning alcohol, and that kind of prohibition supplied a business for Al Capone the way marijuana supplies a business for the Hell's Angels today.   
Also, you can't operate heavy machinery on a lot of cold and flu medication, yet that's not banned out of fear someone will show up for work under the influence.   
   
When it comes to keeping people from getting things done, sites like this are a greater impediment for me than weed.

Wasn't weed made illegal by some asshole who lost profit with his paper company?

This might be long so i understand if you just ignore my post...   
im gonna level with you, im not entirely sure, but i do know that one of the reasons it is illegal is because the Gov't doesnt make money from the sells. which is why prostitution is illegal as well as filesharing. that is why it is perfectly fine to pay for sex at the bunny ranch but not from Corner Connie down the street. And honestly, that is a terrible reason to make something illegal. it should be illegal because it is a hazard to the public. if it only affects you then great! go ape 						****					, but when you step over the personal boundaries and risk others, that is where the illegality should rest.    
   
im sorry if its too long

Not everyone who smokes marijuana goes out and drives, actually a very tiny majority of those who smoke it would ever do that. Its called common sense to not do something dangerous while under the influence of anything, the real danger to people is people, marijuana doesn't make everyone want to go and harm other people, it doesn't make people want to risk others lives by doing something which should not be attempted while under the influence of marijuana its all down to the individual.

I agree, if people want to ruin their lives with weed (which I doubt happens very often) and alcohol, they should go ahead, it's their life.

i think they pots better than alcohol. no doubt. but i don't really see the point in smoking it for recreation. i understand if you have a legitimate disease. its like cigarettes to me. i don't see the point. at least pot isn't as bad as cigarettes though.

It'll be legal to use marijuana recreationally for adults 21 or older in Colorado when the law's officially enacted next month. They can even grow up to six marijuana plants and share with their friends, though it's illegal to sell those plants. However, closer to your point, marijuana establishments won't be opened until the end of 2013; not as a matter of legality, but because the Department of Revenue needs time to create the necessary regulations and process prospective retailers' applications.

oh I was just complaining that its not legal, not bragging because its legal here :)

It's ironic that it's now a FEDERAL offense to smoke weed, since the state legalized it, but the federal government considers it a crime.   
   
So don't celebrate too soon, Colorado citizens.

its always been a federal offense, and its hardly enforced by the DEA.
#27 to #23 - sunnydaycoffee (11/14/2012) [-]
Hardly enforced my ass, marijuana dispensaries in LA were raided time and time again, staff were beat and LEGAL businesses went bankrupt after their product was STOLEN from the DEA.
#28 to #27 - ilikebigdick (11/14/2012) [-]
you don't see DEA officials patrolling the streets. Their main concern is basically the guys at the top of the industry.

Not in Washington. It's legal to be in possesion of a maximum of an ounce of weed at any given time. But selling outside of a licsensed dispenory is illegal. There are a lot of restrictions and loopholes though. It should be about a year before all of the rules are made.
#35 to #21 - brutalnooodle (11/14/2012) [-]
I'm thumbing you up because **** red thumbs, but you're wrong. In Washington and Colorado (where I live, so let's pretend I know **** ), STATE law has decriminalized the possession of weed, as you said. However, the laws in question were passed at a state level and have no effect on the current FEDERAL illegality of marijuana possession. According to the supremacy clause... blah blah blah.... federal law always trumps state law. This means that, regardless of what colorado and washington say, possession is still federally illegal IF the national government decides to enforce their laws.

Sorry, I'm just going off of what I heard on the news 'cause apparently, that's all anyone cares about (there ain't nothing about newly legalized gay marriage) It doesn't apply to me anyway. I don't smoke, and even if I did, I'm underaged so it wouldn't matter much.
User avatar #3 to #2 - TastyBurger (11/14/2012) [-]
How's that irony? The voters were aware that it was illegal on a federal level. Cause it's kinda been that way since the 1930's. It's a major reason there's a DEA.
User avatar #4 to #3 - wackywelder (11/14/2012) [-]
Because everyone's going crazy that people can smoke weed in colorado, only to discover its a felony, not a misdemeanor in Colorado anymore.

Essentially, they made smoking weed a worse crime.
#13 to #4 - Hightower (11/14/2012) [-]
The state law in no way altered the federal law. Possession of marijuana is still a misdemeanor, and is punishable by up to one year in jail and a minimum fine of $1,000 for a first conviction. For a second conviction, the penalties increase to a 15-day mandatory minimum sentence with a maximum of two years in prison and a fine of up to $2,500. Subsequent convictions carry a 90-day mandatory minimum sentence and a maximum of up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.

...What? It's been illegal on a federal level for almost a hundred years. It's not a worse crime at all... It's the same crime. Schedule 1 Narcotic. If the DEA, ATF, FBI, CIA or any other federal law enforcement busted you before the legislation was passed, you'd still get the same charge. It just means state and county police officers can't arrest you because its no longer a law to them. But federal agents don't just walk around the street looking for people with weed. Their busts are on higher up dealers. That's not new, or irony.
