Readers support changes to laws regarding Cannabis sativa

The results of last week’s poll are interesting.

Q: What are you thoughts on Cannabis sativa? (Pick up to three)

  1. Industrial hemp is not a drug and farmers should be allowed to grow the crop 97 [24.49%]
  2. Possession should be decriminalized 96 [24.24%]
  3. Medical marijuana should be legalized in Missouri 74 [18.69%]
  4. Possession of small quantities should be decriminalized 48 [12.12%]
  5. The “medical” need is abused where allowed 38 [9.6%]
  6. The drug is bad and possession should remain illegal 18 [4.55%]
  7. Other answer… 16 [4.04%]
  8. If industrial hemp is allowed it would be used to hide the growing of the drug 9 [2.27%]

Note that people could select up to three answers. Thankfully the ‘industrial hemp is not a drug’ answer got the most votes.  But it is also clear many of the readers that voted in the poll favor some form of decriminalization.

The “other” answers were:

  1. It should be legalized and taxed.
  2. it doesnt do as much damage as liquor so i dont see why its not legal already.
  3. don’t care
  4. This seems off topic
  5. Legalize It!
  6. Marijuana should be 100% completely legal!
  7. Full legalization
  8. Full legalization for all purposes
  9. It’s a slippery slope but some new options should be investigated.
  10. Legalize it!
  11. It should be treated like alcohol
  12. Full Legalization – How whiskey is legal but weed isn’t speaks of our hypoc
  13. Marijuana should be legalized and taxed.
  14. Legalize all uses
  15. legalize it! and i don’t even smoke!
  16. use taxes from its’ sale to finance states that are bankrupt.

As attitudes about Cannabis and the drug marijuana relax, cities will need polices to deal with the change.  The next ten years will be interesting as the laws change.

    It's also going to require changes at the federal level: http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_15022763 is an article about a grower in Colorado who was busted by the feds, even though he was legal at the local level.
