Weaver95: As much as the DEA would surely love to arrest everyone in Washington and Colorado, they've got a serious problem here with the legalization efforts. without the help of state and local cops, they can't fight the good fight against cannabis. they NEED local support, otherwise they don't have enough money to do anything useful.other than a few flashy high profile actions, the best thing the DEA can do is find someone to make an example of and hope the federal courts reverse what the states are doing.
Weaver95: those are called 'lies' and people aren't falling for them anymore.
zvoidx: Lost in the debate is that fact that marijuana supply, especially near urban areas, can be tainted with something or another. Sometimes there are added drugs such as angel dust, crack ore even roach spray. This is done to stay competitive versus regular pot.
douchebag/hater: No, people want legalized pot for no other reason than to keep from getting arrested.
Shadow Blasko: insano: A) Who is stopping tobacco use?Most of your argument to those points was well thought out, except this one.If pot ends up taxed at the levels tobacco is at, no one will be able to afford it.

Hobodeluxe: One is a member of that DICE team in Nashville.
Ow My Balls: BronyMedic: And anyone who calls marijuana a gateway drug should throw up a red flag, and be seen as unreliable. It's just about as factual as "Reefer Madness" was a documentary.A couple of Christmases ago, I was arguing with my 50-year-old law enforcement brother-in-law and, in the same room, a younger guy in his twenties also in law enforcement who was dating my niece-in-law, both of them adamant that legalizing marijuana would obviously lead to lots and lots of people suddenly trying harder drugs like Cocaine, and also that we shouldn't condone such dangerous behavior as smoking marijuana in the first place, that people should be sober and with it in general and it's a proper function of the government and the police to force people to be sober, straight and productive members of society for their own good.At some point, you just smile and nod with these types of people./social conservatives for the Fail
Taylor Mental: Here's your not really prohibition, dumbfarks. Link

Rapmaster2000: Marijuana ruined my life. One time I did the marijuana and now I write for CNN.
Snarfangel: This is the sort of hard-hitting "news" that I expect from CNN.
