Legalizing Pot

You Be the Judge

It's been a wild week for weed enthusiasts ... recreational marijuana was legalized in Colorado and Washington -- kinda -- allowing anyone over 21 to purchase the drug whenever they want.

It's completely revolutionary -- but it raises all kinds of kush-y questions. So we gotta ask ...

OF COURSE weed will become uncool. It's only hip now because it is taboo. You just thought cigarette smokers were treated like crap. Just watch.

There is more positive then negative by legalizing it. Of course you have to be responsible with it and there needs to be tough rules to use it. There is a middle there where everyone or mostly everyone can live with.

If people want to go in the woods and smoke it or do it alone in their homes, fine. I wouldn't want the smoke around me from another user in a communal area. I think it makes sense to legalize it because I have heard that hemp oil can cure cancer if it is made from the pot plat. People should be allowed to try this without going to jail for it.


If no one is complaining about smoke, I don't think people should be going to jail over pot. Maybe fine them for disturbing others with the smoke, but we are wasting too much money on keeping people in jail and wasting too many lives over locking up people who smoke pot.

The weekend poll questions seem hastily constructed and not taken seriously for the most part. This one had relevant questions that continue to post interesting citizen response. Well done! The national mass of TMZ Live voters support the legalization of MJ. I had no idea that would be the case. C'mon Oregon! Let's stimulate the economy.

Suckily, the four panel ad that is covering most of the page will not close.

You all need to decide this for yourselves. All I can say is I am Dutch and my country statistically is far from worse off than America, HOWEVER, you are your own country with a different culture so pot might have a different effect on your country if it became legal. All I'm saying is the Dutch are generally productive, ambitious and educated enough to be able to avoid pot abuse even among teens. Is that the opinion you have on YOUR country or not? That's the question. Do you trust the others in your country enough to give them the freedom you demand for yourself in other areas?

You do realize Obama sent in the DEA to enforce pot still being illegal, right? It's no more legal today as it was the day before the election. Way to do your research, TMZ.
