My stance on marijuana is the same as my stance on EVERYTHING: If it doesn't harm anyone else, go for it.

Legalize it and tax it. However make sure the same rules apply for joints as do for cigarettes. As someone highly allergic to it, I'd like to be able to avoid at least a few spots of the smell. Lol

I am between 2 & 3.

Here is the thing....I use to smoke it. Not wake and bake style, but I use to smoke a lot of it. With friends, at parties, at lunch in jr high and high school, camping, weekends, etc...then I hit 23-24ish and was like "meh", I'm done.

Now, at 31, I think the shit stinks. I find it annoying, I think the whole "pot" culture is gross, dirty, and immature, and I hate dealing with it.

I manage 5 apartment buildings and find that this is my BIGGEST problem. I get it. Everyone smokes pot. I am a minority in this province when it comes to this issue. My issue is, is that it effects others. It stinks up the halls, it smells up your neighbours' apartment, etc. It also presents a less than ideal place to live for potential tenants.

I know the same can be said for cigarette smoke, but I don't get high from your cigarette smoke. All my buildings are non-smoking buildings, so if I smell cigarette smoke, I can tell people to go outside, give warning letters, and potentially end their tenancy. The problem with pot smokers is, "well, I don't smoke pot". I can't do anything.

If I sit next to a guy getting drunk, I don't get drunk. If I sit next to a guy smoke pot, I get high. And, from what I understand, there are no mechanisms to detect impaired drivers that are high, so there is another issue.

Rant done...proceed to fail as I am sure few other share my opinion.

Legalize it, get the government to sell it as cheap as possible -- this instantly destroys the grow-op supply, and forces organized crime to find other ways to obtain easy cash. My friends from the Netherlands told me it was annoying that everyone thought they smoked up all the time -- in reality they thought only the tourists smoked a lot. As well, the drug legalization program was a tremendous success in Portugal -- legalizing everything but massively increasing rehab option support.

Never smoked it, never will.

But despite that, I'm going with #1.
It's a choice. I almost always side with choice.

Legalize, regulate, tax the crap out of it and educate.

Less than 5% of my friends smoke, and even then, it's casual, not chain smokers.
Studies have shown that cigs are are more addictive and more harmful than pot, yet we're in a smoking-declining culture simply due to proper early education.

That and we'll have more money coming in.
