Yeah, here's his comment, copy/pasted, so I'm not just talking to myself: " Guy007 Sep-16-13 1:14 PM Agree | Disagree I have a brother in law who is addictive to marijuana. I have seen the repercussions of many addicts who have recreationally imbibed in this drug. There are those out there(probably marijuana imbibers,and many already addicted from its use) who deny it is harmful. These folks do not know what the*****they are talking about!!!

Nearly every piece of scientific evidence shows it isn't addictive, and no one has ever overdosed on marijuana, either.

Jane, it has been proven time and time again that marijuana is less harmful than tobacco and is not addictive. It is also beneficial in the treatment of several illnesses. So yeah, I say let them smoke pot instead of making meth. The meth epidemic is not the result of your rantings, rather the result of these idiots wanting a fix. I do agree with you about welfare, and I feel all welfare recipients should be subject to drug screenings. When kids are involved, drugs should be out of the question, but we all know there are too many irresponsible morons out there that value a high over their kids. I'm not clicking the agree/disagree button either way, because I see both in your argument.

When we start punishing and stop pampering drug addicts and they have consequences to their actions, this problem will change. When you have a pest problem the first thing you do is cut off their food source-namely welfare. Also stop making the fact that a drug addict has kids a factor in how long they go to jail-if they go to jail at all. Having a meth head for a mama is not better than having no mama at all.

Oh so the we'll solve this problem by making it legal for the meth heads to become pot heads? RealityInTheMOV, I really fil to see any reason in your logic. This meth epidemic is the result of too many "lets kiss these boo boos and make them go away" drug courts, treatment in leiu of conviction and the mentality that"Poor, poor Mr./Ms. Drug Addict, You're not a bad person you're a sick person who needs counciling and SSI and food stamps and low income housing-and if you start having kids you can't take care of you'l get even more money.Through good-and totally misguided intentions-our society has created a generation of Bumjunkies!

Legalize marijuana and use the cost savings to battle the real drugs, like meth. More money toward the problem could go a long way.
