    Cannabis should be legal WORLDWIDE!!! Safer than alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceuticals. Corruption and ignorance leads to prohibition… Personal freedom to make a safer choice, Legalize It!

      How do you explain alcohol prohibition?
      If that had never been legalized would there be as many drunk driving deaths each year?

      • AntiIgnorant

        There would be many, many more… because breathalyzers wouldn’t have been created and drunks wouldn’t be removed from the roads and given DUI’s before they kill people. Would you prefer only black market dealers receive money for substances (alcohol, cannabis) that will always be in demand? Whether you approve or not, people will always want their alcohol and cannabis. Logic says, regulate not prohibit.

        • Denny

          I said nothing about black market dealers, merely a comment regarding drunk drivers, and there’s no shortage of them on the roads daily.
          I like the way the dispensaries are currently functioning, but their pricing is high, especially for the edibles.
          Even so, I have no interest in black market goods and services and won’t buy anything there.

      • saynotohypocrisy

        Are you implying something about weed with your question about drunk driving?

    • saynotohypocrisy

      A lot safer than football too. How dare people who get their kicks watching concussion-dementia derby while they drink booze tell other folks they can’t use weed? If you want people to respect the law, don’t make POS laws.
