I think he hit the nail with his own head! Drugs are a moral individual descision, not a descision that should be made by the majority. The prohibition against alchohol was illegal with the same results as the war on drugs. The war on drugs is illegal, at least to a free society that still believes in the constitution.

LOL what kind of dumb logic is that? I should be able to do WHATEVER I want on my own private property? Does that include gassing jews, raping children and launching ballistic missiles? Homosexuals use the same logic to argue that there's nothing wrong with the shit they do, and it's the most ridiculous flaw of logic I've probably ever heard being argued

If he atleast Decriminilzes marijuana it would be a miracle. McCains stance on Marijuana is pathetic, hes even against medical marijuana. There is no excuse for not legalizing/or atleast decriminalizing marijuana, its Safer than alcohol and old fucks will never realize that.. Legalize marijuana or go kill yourself, seriously..

All of the votable canidates want to expand the government! Obama wants to coerce the population in to accepting responsibility for irresponsible people. McCain wants to coerce the population into excepting an unconstitutional war. LOOK AT THE FACTS! Expansion of government leads to more spending! LOOK AT THE FACTS! I don't care who you like, just look at the facts before you do it. America NEEDS REAL CHANGE. How is expanding the government change? It's not because all them want it.GET FACTS!lol

right on man (nice profile name too lol)!!!! but honestly i dont think that any legilizations of anything would happen anytime soon, but i think that it would be very smart to legalize weed. and i think he would agree the problem isnt gonna be solved by arresting the drug trafficers but it CAN be solved by looking to the people who need the drugs and HELPING them!!! i mean to help out all of our addicts independently!!

@stethoscanomaly You are right sir, Obama is merely a front for the conservative agenda. Obama started out in support of reforming our ludicrous drug policy. Unfortunately he seems to have changed his mind. I can understand why universal health care got canned due to the covetous nature of the rich and of course the state of our economy. Having said that, lets hope for a. legalization of marriage between homosexuals, b. end of this "drug war." If these things happen the economy will improve.

I have had 2 possession of marijuana charges in the last year so I'm facing a 6 month jail sentence. Do you really want you're tax dollars being spent on imprisoning people like me who aren't a threat to society? Obama '08!

I agree. Running a stop sign might actually cause someone else bodily harm if they were to get in a wreck. Whereas someone sitting on their couch smoking pot hurts no one but themselves (less harm than the fat ass slurping down bigmacs daily who develops heart disease- the # one killer of Americans). Which is the greater crime? hmmmmmm Oh and I happen to be facing 15 years for growing a plant in the privacy of my own home but yet I've never run stop signs.

finally someone who understands in fact there is x10 way more money in the illegalized pot market but if done correctly there could be money in leggalization of pot i would never want to see people smoking it in public but in your own presance away from your kids should be ok i also do not not believe it should be legal to smoke and drive just like alchohol if your responsiple than why not its better for you than drinking

wihtout us, the states would loose money, and without the states we would loose money. so i seriously doubt the states would ever even ry to cut f trade, but thet's what they use as a threat if we don't obey THEIR laws in OUR country

I agree that legalization would be a great idea but I don't think that rational argument is going to work unfortunately. The reason I say this is because there is very little logic in the War on Drugs. Its largely a result of fear left over from the moral panics created by Harry Anslinger in the 20's and 30's in which Marijuana was demonized in the public's eye. As illogical and invalid as the claims are, they still linger on, such as the gateway drug myth.

Tabacco 'n alcohol kill more and they're legal; if all were legal, it'd all rely on the individual's own self-education and responsibility; it'd lead to an empowering of the individual - and a lot of morons would be wiped out.

that's our major problem, the reson pot is illegal hee in canada, is because it's illegal in the sates. back in the early 2000's canada was on the brink of legalization we were almost there, ther were stores selling seeds, and even a couple selling pot. near-legaly, taxing it and supplying the government with loads of tax dollars. but the states got mad, adn fought with U.S agencys to control canada's laws.

Weed only does a few things to ya, none of which are harmful if you use it responsibly. I smoke from time to time, makes ya sleepy, giggle some, laught at stupid stuff, and possibly makes you want to eat a little bit more than normal but thats it. There arent enough thc receptors in the brain for you to get Addicted. The eating can be the only problem if you veg out, and that can be controlled if you know you need to.

If Obama not necessarily "legalizes" marijuana, but makes it,"sort of legalized", in some way, our crime rates, murder rates, and many MANY others will drop significantly. Alot of people say, "oh, well its a drug, it hurts you, you'll get addicted, you won't have any friends...BLAH BLAH" that is as far from correct as bluegrass is to rap. I've got friends, i'm not addicted, i'm living just fine, and when parents, the govt. or whoever says I shouldn't do it, it makes me want to do it even more.

please explain to me why people dont die from marijauna. if you use filters and stuff its healthier than smoking cigarettes. sit on that for awhile if anything maybe cigarettes should be put on a list of drugs they kill a hell of a lot more people than marijuana ever will..

I don't think that would be necessary. Although weed isn't addictive to the extent that tobacco is, it is still habit forming in the same ways that big sellers like fast food and energy drinks are. Essentially, the "high" alone would make a lot of people want to but it on a regular basis.

i dont understand, are you saying obama actually supports just locking more people up to lower crime rates, or that he supports something else entirely? or are you saying he makes good points here but really doesn't know anything, or that he makes bad points here and doesn't know anything? i just dont know what you're trying to say about obama, you seem to know a lot more about him than i do. do you know him in person?

Dude what he means is the cops will do what they SHOULD be doing which is do patrols. Maybe just more often. In some areas I'm sure that alot of cops just sit in speed traps and pull people over. Or wait for a 911 call. He didn't mean Climate of cooperation in that way. I agree with you on how to end the drug war.

I agree with him... marijuana should be legal... BUT obama will never decriminalize or help us in any way... he has flip floped his mind so many times... and his current view is to make it illigal... he justs sends out a mixed messege so people will vote for him. But he his a better choice. Mccain is worse when it comes to marijuana. Obama... he has hope, but mcCain simply SUCKS.

What a stupid comment. Freedom is not about giving people the right to do anything they want -- what you see as a right might be a restriction to another person. For example we do not have the freedom to murder -- if we did that would be against the freedom of other people. Much like peddling drugs and being in an intoxicated state of mind directly and indirectly harms others and takes away their freedom.
Report spam or abuse
Perhaps your saying if I were truly free I'd be free from "drug addiction". I'm not a puritan or straight edge, nor am I some hippy who needs to smoke constantly. Sure, there is much more to life than pot, but it's should be my right to partake if I so choose. Besides, because of the racism and demonization that were involved in making it illigal, I believe that it is an injustice for it to be illigal, therefore I feel it is my duty as an American to point out this injustice. Have a nice 'J'.

Obama nailed this topic right on the head for the most part. The cycle of crime and drugs gets out of control once the person's been to jail: their chances of getting pulled back into that life go up because of having less opportunities and more problems. What he still doesn't get (or refuses to say yet) is that the drugs themselves are not the problem. He knows the system is not set up right, but he still needs to acknowledge that legalization/regulation would lead to the best outcome.

CO2 does not "corrode away" the ozone. CO2 has nothing to do with the ozone layer. CO2 is a greenhouse gas which acts like an insulator and holds heat in our atmosphere. CO2 makes it harder for our planet to radiate heat outward. You are right however that smoking does not do much to raise CO2 levels. You'd have to smoke pounds of pot or tobacco daily to equal the amount that a car makes in a year.

The fact that there is such a booming black market caused by the illegal nature of marijuana is appalling. It is not acceptable to wage war over drug distribution territory and this could very easily be remedied by legalizing, regulating, and subsidizing cannabis and cannabis horticulture.

What you fail to realize is Obama will most definetly keep his word on this topic because unlike many others who have tried it he was not affraid to come out and say that he smoked marijuana frequently. The problem with Ron Paul is he's too extreme in many of his issues therefor the mainstream will find it hard to take him seriously. Don't get me wrong, I REALLY respect the guy but unfortunetly the rest of his party doesn't feel the same way I do.

How many people really know the story.? Obama is a dissident terrorist; and this is not to say that he no longer has any affiliation. 911 was a beginning step in many options to his campaign if he succeeds the white house. (Look @ the bigger picture) Forget comparing the two candidates. Obama was not born in US; a pre-requisite to run for the presidency. A year ago this was said to me by someone, who of course I didn't believe and left them for NuTTy.! (I was more for Obama then) Not now.!
