I LOVE how the governement is actually considering to decriminalize it so they can make tax money off of it, I also don't understand why just because its " 4 / 20 " the justice system allows 3,000 people to light up and hit the bong downtown ... I thought this shit was illegal. Never understood why it was illegal though, it's really no different than drinking a shit ton and if they do decriminalize it they should follow the same types of laws that apply to alchohol and not cigarettes seeing how it has a mind altering affect. ie. No driving while stoned, no smoking pot in public places (okay well this one should be like smokes) and if you come to work stoned it's no different than coming to work drunk. The only real problem I've ever had with weed is the studies connecting it to schizophrenia. I was watchin the Nature of Things when they had an episode on this, pretty F'd up shiat. Also saw one on 20/20. I think they were saying pot increases the dopamine in the brain which can increase the chance of getting it, especially if you have a family history on it. Things like that I'm concerned about ... if they can actually prove it scientifically. My favorite is the guy sitting in the corner of the party smoking and drinking who starts going off the handle on the kid who offered him a hit from his bong.
