People are stupid enough as it is. They don't need a drug to enhance it.

V.I.P.
I don't think it should be legalized and I'm too lazy to argue my reasoning now. I'm going to go out and enjoy the sun.

There are a lot of factors that many people probably don't know or realize when it comes to marijuana.

I would have to say yes ASSUMING that it would help out America's current economical status.

But it wouldn't. If the united states was to legalize it and tax it at similar rates to tobacco and alcohol it is projected to bring in about 6.2 billion. Which is a ton of money, but when compared to how much is already being brought in, (2.1 trillion) 6.2 billion isn't a lot of money. (E.x. 2,106.2 vs 2,100 in billions of dollars) and it is even less when compared to the national debt, (14.4 trillion dollars)

i think the question being asked could be worded better.

how bout this:

Do you think people who use marijuana (medicinally or recreationally) should be considered to be criminals?

or

Do you think your tax dollars should be funding the notion that marijuana users are criminals?

Rather this should be the question.
Do you think people who break the LAW should be considered criminals?

so black people who drank from "white only" fountains were criminals?

your question is bias to the situation as it is too general. there is a such thing as un-just laws.

Yes, the black people who drank water out of the "white only" fountains were criminals. That being said, google defines a criminal as:

crim·i·nal/ˈkrimənl/Noun:
A person who has committed a crime.
Crime:
crime/krīm/Noun
1. An action or omission that constitutes an offense that may be prosecuted by the state and is punishable by law:

Note that the definition of a crime doesn't mention how just or un-just the law was.
