It's often said that California is the testing grounds for new national laws. If that's true, there's plenty of hope for decriminalization. Note that I didn't say "legalization". I still think it should be regulated and growing permits controlled by the government, which would be another way for them to make money. You pay $XXX a year for a permit allowing you to have X-amount of plants in each growth cycle. Like fruit, sales would be free and open. You can either buy the prepackaged stuff from the store or the fresh fruit from a stand. The best thing this would do, is completely and almost instantly destroy the violence associated with the black market.

HELLO!!! Stump stumbled across this! What do I have to say? To each his own. I don't judge. We all live our lives in the way that we see fit. Because of the capacity that I work in I have my views. I will not look down on anyone for their beliefs or views. I may not agree with them but ..who am I? Just another guy who likes to play drums and enjoy friendship! Peace on ya!

well i think its best being illegal. if it turns legal MORE stoned people would roam the streets. therefore, more accidents, more lazy people, and etc. but even if its not true, the government would take over the ganja and would cost more and might even have harmful chemicals, such as tabbacco is. because weed is safer than alcohol and even tabacco. and by the way, cops arent so strict about weed, as oppose to coke, heroin, lsd and etc. so in my opinion i think its best as is.
and screw anti-drug, ads, they are full of bs.

Using that logic, why not ban alcohol? Why do I have to dodge at least 3 drunks on my way home at 2am every night?

Let's treat alcohol addiction, food addiction, prescription addiction, tobacco addiction the same as we treat other addicts. Let's criminalize it. Lock the perpetrators of said addictions up for 10 year stretches. According to the government, addictions are criminal offenses.

Personally I have no problem with it. I wish the government would not be so hypocritical. Either level the field or decriminalize benign substances. If it's regulated many problems will be solved. And spare me the "oh but kids might get ahold of it". Kids drink alcohol all the time. They smoke cigarettes. They have sex. However if you regulate the sales of said benign substances it removes part of the taboo of it all (part of the allure) and also it puts a "criminal enterprise" out of business (In favor of another criminal enterprise AKA the government).

Don't steal. The government hates competition.

I too think weed should be legalized. There are more important drugs to enforce, like meth. Now, having said that I was never huge into the pot scene when I was younger and now that I have kids, we are adamant about saying no to drugs with them. My 10 year old is starting to ask about marijuana, so it's out there at younger ages. As parents we aren't blind to that fact. At the risk of being a hypocrit, I feel it should be legalized for adults but I will do everything and anything I can to keep my kids away from it.

Big surprie here that I partake
Maybe that's what makes me so paranoid about the music busines huh?
Seriously
I waited until I was 27 to do any type of substance (including alcahol)
I guess you could say that I was mature enough to know I wasn't mature enough to handle anything yet
Who's ready and who's not is a big question
There are many parents who have ascribed to the "let them experiment in a safe environment" way of thinking and it has some merits
Kids are going to try it if they want to so you may as well regulate what they're doing
However, young minds and bodies are still developing and throwing chemicals in there does more damage than to an adult
You can never take it out once it's mixed in and it affects the way you end up
I know people who are pretty much functionally retarded because they smoked a ton of pot when they were teenagers
That being said, I realise full well the effect is has on me and have weighed the pros and cons
One of the facts that is of issue is that it does slow your brain down
This is bad if you intend on driving and no one can tell me it's not as bad as driving drunk

I can remember Bob Dylan explaining that he's not that great of a songwriter, he just reaches up into the air and plucks the words/notes out of time
Unfortunately, my brain tends to travel very fast and I have a hard time interpreting all of that information up in the air
Smoking does slow down that info to where I can grab the pieces
Unfortunately it does kill your drive sometimes and I do end up vegging out in front of a TV or the computer

It does not "enhance" your creativity
It alters your perception
Most people don't make that distinction and end up usng it as a crutch or an excuse
Plus, you can't tell me that any kind of smoke is good for your lungs
You say irritant, I say catalyst

Drumming is my passion.
Recording is a habit.
