You drink it, like soda, water, etc.

Tobacco also doesn't alter your state of mind.

Next up: Crystal Meth.

'No wai.'

'Yeah? Well that's what they said about pot.'

When it comes to sin taxes, Where do you draw the line? Prostitution? Underground gambling including dog fights etc.? Happy pills? Crack cocaine? Whatever.

Certainly gangsters don't want to lose all these markets to the government, but if pot is legalized, where are these guys going to turn for their profits? Likely harder drugs. Like crystal meth.

In the end, it's a person's choice. You're probably not going to switch from weed to crystal meth. But your kids might be pushed into it a bit harder down the road. We'll see.

as long as "Public display or use of marijuana would still be prohibited." is strongly enforced (unlike it is now) i would be totally fine with the extra tax dollars from legalization. sick and tired of vancouver smelling like a skunk rolled through it.

However, second hand marijuana smoke doesn't give you cancer.

Why should public display of marijuana use be illegal? To set an example to your children?

Wait, what? Inhaling any burning plant is going to increase cancer risk.

Tobacco is a much stronger carcinogen. Chewing it in your mouth can give you cancer.

Is there ANY known case of cancer from marijuana use?

The keyword in that article is "may".

I'm not a weed smoker. But the pharmaceutical and tobacco companies have been getting rich. I think it's time to put marijuana to some tax paying use. A huge market for bc and if it can boost our economy - get 'er done.

So what are the chances that BC follows? Would it be a pain to legalize it with Harper as PM?

The natural reaction of stoners from this province will be enthusiasm for this vote, but there's also an ugly lining. Our domestic industry can't help but suffer with this jurisdiction next door liberalizing their marijuana laws. We will lose market share and skilled workers because conditions down south have just become better. The quality of our local efforts to produce the best dope can't help but suffer by comparison.

I for one don't think we should be celebrating the fact that our closest competitor, geographically, just got a huge advantage over us. It doesn't mean anything good for the marijuana industry here in British Columbia.

In the US the federal Controlled Substances Act prohibits the production, sale, and possession of marijuana and the US Supreme Court has been clear - federal law trumps state law in regards to marijuana. The federal government clamped down on medical marijuana and that move was upheld by the US federal courts.

Just as Amsterdam bans it for tourists.

Watchout Colorado and Washington, here come pot-heads from all over the world.
