    People seem to doubt that the federal government is going to go into the states and arrest people themselves since that might cause more friction than is wanted... but there's plenty of other ways the federal government could try to get people for possession/use.

    As far as personal feelings, I'm meh. It's a drug that affects people's inhibitions and actions like alcohol (to a lesser degree), and I'm uncomfortable when people around me use it (just like I get uncomfortable when drunk people hang over me), but I'm not going to oppose the legalization... in fact it'd be interesting to see what happens if it gets legalized federally (or at least in enough states for it to make an impact).

    Great for mourning Republicans. A good way for them to forget about the election.

    Interesting. I kinda want to see the effect this would have on the community.

    well seems like a positive move, too many people get into drugs and rack up dept, or need them mentally to calm them
    now before it gets bad, people/parents/family can go to the doctors and help these people without the worry of the situation getting worse because its illegal

    I have never had an issue with people using marijuana. I never tried it myself (health reasons), but I never thought less of anyone who did. I see on par with alcohol, effect wise, and it should be regulated as such, IMO.

    I'd like to see it legalised, just so that the moronic kids around here can stop bragging about how 'hard' they are for using it.

    I do find the amount of "LEGALIZE IT!" to be so incredibly annoying. Like I'm all for legalizing it but not for the same reasons smokers generally are. In fact I think a lot of pot smokers (not all of them but most of them) who say "It should be legalized" are part of the reason it's not. Like if you see a stoner supporting something it gains no real credit. See a well constructed man (or woman) with a solid set of ideas for legalizing it then it gets credit.

    So potheads, do what you do best and be apathetic towards legalization and it might actually get legalized!

    Alcohol and Marijuana are almost the same thing, if one is allowed, other have to be allowed too.

    Its a step in the right direction, we have better things to spend our money on the arresting people for using a drug that is pretty much harmless. On another note my state (Maryland) and Maine legalized same sex marriage which is also a step in the right direction.

    Prohibition's a fun little study on the concept as well.

    A) I have to say, Colorado's governor was pretty blunt.
    B) Ah, good to see these efforts didn't go up in smoke.
    C) Legalize weed? Who would mari-wanta?
    D) Man, it looks like the people are really behind legalization. Pot opponents better watch out; they're going to get stoned.
    E) All of the above.

    The stuff was never illegal here in the first place (only having large quantities and unlicensed selling was illegal). Recently they actually tried to make it illegal like most countries, but
    A. Illegal distribution increased. If it's legal, that's one less way for the mafia or whatever to earn boatloads of cash.
    B. The users/sellers of the stuff actually became more of a nuisance to normal citizens than before.

    So based on this I'm all for legalizing it.
