“Yes. If they pay taxes, why not?”

“No. I grew up in the ’60s and had two friends who died in their 30s because they started using pot.”

“I’ll wait and see. Just because it’s legal there, doesn’t mean it’s going to be legal everywhere.”

“No. It started out right for medicinal reasons, but now it’s corrupting the people.”

    So, billy, should it be legalized or not? people have been stoned in all walks of life for at least 50 years and there is only 1documented case where pot directly led to a death and the guy smoked a quarter pound in one sitting.
