Should We Decriminilize Marijuana
Should We Decriminilize Marijuana

AIR DATE: May 14, 2012

Some people want to see marijuana legalized, period.  Others just believe in the medicinal use of cannibus.  But some, including folks in the Republican party, believe that decriminalizing marijuana could help alleviate some of the strain on prisons in Nevada.

YES. Decriminalize the weed. It is so much less harmful than ALCOHOL and prescription drugs ( which ARE legal ). The stigma of a pot conviction ruins many young lives for no real reason. Anyone can get it anyways. ( prohibition does NOT work ). My Sister uses it for Cancer and it helps WITHOUT killing her liver. It frees up cops to do REAL police work and catch real criminals We would SAVE BILLION$ in prosecution and incarceration PLUS the TAX BASE !!! Lots of reasons people !
