Should it be legalized nationwide??? (NOT JUST FOR "MEDICAL" PURPOSES. I MEAN ACTUAL FREE SALE OF MARIJUANA.)
Yes. most people on the forum agree.

I've heard it's less dangerous than alcohol, so I don't see why not. We already waste a lot of police resources of this reletively harmless drug. But then, I'm no expert.

Random?? But make it stay illegal. People will have more injuries and deaths
Make it legal. Most people here in Oregon don't use t for medical purposes, they just tell a doctor their back hurts and voilŕ.
Legalizing Marijuana and levying a tax on it could save us a huge amount of money... not only by making a major cut to spending on the Drug War (I think possession of marijuana is actually classified as a greater crime than possession of cocaine, but I could be wrong on this one.), but also by raising revenue from sales of marijuana.
Legalizing and taxing marijuana is a good thing. End of story. I also believe that if you oppose its legalization, you should also be in favor of illegalizing tobacco and alcohol, but this is personal opinion.
If weed is legalized, the country won't become a perfect utopia where law enforcement and rules aren't needed. We'll still need the DEA and all that I mentioned above, and plus it won't necessarily save the economy. It's a guarantee that hundreds of people will try to grow their own marijuana and make a profit by selling it without the ($50) tax, because seriously, who wants to pay $50 every time they want to get high? The obvious solution is to monitor and regulate THC, hemp, and whatever, right? But that goes back to the DEA, who will have to deal with the strain of doing that and will definitely not be happy that marijuana was legalized.

Traffic accidents: If this is your precedent, why is alcohol legal? Also, most people know when they're stoned better than they know when they're drunk, based on my personal sample of people who both drink and smoke weed.
Public disturbances: No. Pot smokers tend to be quiet, peaceful people, especially when high. Legalization would also reduce some types of crime because people wouldn't have to go out into the streets to get it.
Legal troubles: Well, that's a nebulous ***-cover of a phrase, isn't it? But it's also probably wrong.
To me, all these arguments are bull****. The economy, medicinal marijuana, etc. Pro-marijuana advocates don't really care about that. They just want to get stoned and not have to worry about being thrown in jail for it.
