    Thumbs up

    Yes, weed being illegal does create more problems and crime would go down were it to be legalized and regulated by govt aid. Reason being that when you aren't able to attain a product legally, there will be a "black market." Obviously its typically shady characters involved in a business like that and since there are no legitimate and legal regulations it's up to gangs, dope sellers, importers, distributer and the whole nine to handle business in their own matter. This leads to fueds and other crimes.

    For now, I feel that marijuana should be decrminalized but not nessecarily legalized. Meaning the government doesn't endorse the use of the drug but it would loosen up laws and the penalization of persons possessing minor amounts.

    We should legalize everything that's illegal now, and the crime rate would drop to 0. Crime has been eliminated!

    Wow. It's nice to hear that coming from a person in your profession. If I'm not mistaken, I think I remember reading somewhere that you're in law enforcement. I used to smoke a lot of weed. Never officially quit, but I don't have any connections any more, so I guess I'm a 'pothead on hiatus,' or something. It's probably a surprise to anyone reading this that has read a few of my posts and finding out that I wasn't stoned when I wrote them. Anyway, agree with you on decriminalization vs. outright legalization. I don't see anything wrong with it, but having it be illegal probably keeps a lot of people from being permanently baked. Hell, if it was legal, I'd probably have a patch growing in my back yard myself
    .
    Suggested penalties for post-decriminalization:
    posession under 1oz - slap on wrist
    posession 1oz & above - $25 fine and slap on wrist
    sale - $50 fine and 2 slaps on wrist

    Lets take a bite out of crime.

    BTW, assuming I didn't make up the part about you being five-oh, beat, what kind of criminals are your prey? Feel free to PM your answer if you don't mind telling me but not the rest of the world.

    Just move to CA and join a medical cannabis club. And then get married to your hot gay lover.

    All you wannabe Californians.

    I'm not in law enforcement yet, I'm currently in the military/school.

    I believe a lot, possibly even a majority of cops feel the regulations on Marijuana should be diminished to an extent. But I can't really speak for everyone, so don't quote me on that.

    Hypothetically, if I were an officer now, I obviously wouldn't turn a blind eye to all that is Marijuana related... It's not like I'm an activist in favor of the drug but in general I don't see a reason that makes sense to me, to arrest someone for having a little herb on them. But that all depends on the circumstances, I suppose. Prior history of legal trouble/drug use. Are they operating a vehicle while impaired or in the company of children/minors? etc. You get the point.
