USA -- Support for marijuana legalization has reached a new high  and young adults are fueling the flames. A Gallup poll released Tuesday revealed a majority of adults back cannabis legalization for the first time since Gallup asked the question in 1969. 58% of the respondents supported the idea, but among 18- to 29-year-olds the figure jumps to 67%.Michael Kenney, professor of international affairs at the University of Pittsburgh, says supportive attitudes were inevitable among Millennials who came of age in the midst of the legalization debate.
"Every year, millions of otherwise law-abiding citizens are using cannabis," Kenney says. "It's not necessarily looked down on by young people. It's no big whoop."Karilla Dyer, a junior at the University of Florida, meets very few people who haven't tried the drug. Smoking should be considered a lifestyle choice, she says."If someone wants to smoke marijuana occasionally in a social setting or just to relax, it should not be more illegal than having a glass of wine," the 21-year-old says. "Pot is not something that ruins lives."Currently, 20 states and Washington, D.C., allow smoked marijuana to be used for a variety of medical conditions. Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize recreational use.SnippedComplete Article: http://drugsense.org/url/ZtchblAvSource: USA Today (US) Author: Shayna Posses, USA TodayPublished: October 25, 2013Copyright: 2013 USA Today, a division of Gannett Co.

"making drugs out of it still does not make it one"
"Yye that's the rub" All this taxing, regulating, seed to sale crap is absolutely crazy. The coppers call it a narcotic. Things are still way out of hand. Thankfully, this mindset is on its way out...goin way to xxxxxx slow for me though

Sabet is more dangerous than cannabis.
The problem with Sabet and those like Him:CANNABIS PROHIBITIONIST Kevin Sabet, co-founder of Project Smart Approaches to Marijuana says, "I think students are wary of another industry like the tobacco industry, another corporate interest that is going to live off people's addiction,"Sabet will never come out and acknowledge truthfully, cannabis is not physically addictive like cigs and cigs kill over 1,000 Americans DAILY. And that's just American smokers (not including 2nd hand breather deaths), the global death toll due to cigs is pathetic.That kind of makes Sabet a deadly person, more dangerous than cannabis.-0- "Pot is not something that ruins lives."But pot prohibition does ruin lives!Sabet supports ruining lives.Shame on Sabet.
