I never understood how a state law could override a Federal law anyway. Make it legal, tax it, and stiffen the sentences for illegal growers/distributors.

They would find it difficult to turn down all that tax revenue. It's all about the money!

We're just now starting to convince the lawmakers that driving while texting, or even while yakking on the phone, is just as dangerous as driving drunk. So now we're going to have a whole new class of impaired drivers on the road - the stoners. I'm not so naive as to think they don't drive stoned now, but if dope is legalized, the number of stoned drivers will increase a hundredfold.

Not one person is killed in a car crash while high on pot? I'm calling BS.

It is about the money, whether it's alcohol, cannabis, or any other "borderline" socially acceptable substance that can be abused. I think it's a matter of practicality. Cannabis is a popular drug and since it's currently illegal in most states, a tremendous amount of drug cartel money is funneled into its production, just as it was during the prohibition of alcohol in the 1930's. I think we all know the consequences of that by now. Wars between the mobs of the 30's and the cartels of today kill a lot of people, innocent or otherwise. At this point, I think legalizing cannabis is the lesser of two evils.
