Legalize it and the illegal trade of it dies along with the violence. You might not care about the violence since it's just scum killing scum but it puts innocent civilians at risk and wastes tons of time and money from the DEA.

If you think people are just going to do it anyway, which they are, then the government might as well make a profit from lowering crime. God knows America needs all the money it can get to get some proper social benefits for the people.

The scum will just find something else to kill eachother over instead, there are plenty of other illegal (and more dangerous) drugs that they can trade in. Legalizing one just means they have to change to another. It does not guarantee a decrease in violent crimes or save any money.

If the DEA doesn't have to worry about marijuana anymore they can focus on the real drugs. It might not guarantee money saved overall (any saved money will just be redirected anyway) but it will mean more money going to the fight against serious drugs.

Well I assume the DEA is some kind of drug enforcement agency? Sure they can pull more resources towards dealing with other drugs. But who's going to help out the hospitals and emergency services who find an increased workload? Alcohol already costs goverments billions of dollars through accidents and so forth from drunk people, add the stoned people to that too and wont that be fun.

Half the thrill comes in knowledge of breaking the rules. Remove the rules, legalize it, and people will be more chilled about it. I doubt many have died from weed overdose in Amsterdam when compared to US or any other country where weed is illegal, since nobody's looking to be a rebel. It's a weird trait of human psychology that's sparked the old cliche: "rules are made to be broken". Same story here.

I don't think anyone has ever died from overdosing on weed >> And if they have, I want a link to the story so i can lawl.

And yea, I drink, not very heavily, and I am underage, I don't feel rebellious or special, and I don't end up staggering home vomiting in the grass, I have a few shots with some friends, then call it a night.

Also, this is why weed is illegal. Link

Yup, Drug Enforcement Administration. As for the hospitals, it's America, they'll just send the bill to the OD'd idiot anyway.

Does anyone know if health insurance in America covers the bill for an OD?

I don't want a big car, particularly. I have no need for acreage, and I don't like the fuel bills. But I don't want a small one because they're all like supermarket own-brand cola: weedy imitations of the real thing - Jeremy Clarkson

Same here in Canada, America's the only civilized country without social medicine, it's shocking how different things are down there because of that. My aunt in Chicago is practically drowning in medical bills because of a respiratory problem. After seeing that I'd never even consider living in a country with no health coverage.
