Community Pulse: Legalize it?

How would you vote on a statewide ballot initiative to legalize
the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana?
THIS WEEK’S WEB POLL:

How would you vote on a statewide ballot initiative to legalize the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana?

Yes: 8 No: 3

■ NO … you just can’t convince me that it does not have long-term psychological effects that are not good.

■ If the recreational use is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol, then I would vote for it.

■ Yes and tax the heck out of it!

■ Yes. California needs the tax revenue. Alcohol is legal so why not marijuana? I’ve never used alcohol, drugs, tobacco nor coffee, but I support receiving tax funds from those who do use them.

■ Yes. But I wouldn’t stop there. Perhaps this would open the door (and minds of our ignorant political leaders) to other commercial and industrial uses for cannabis based products that are currently illegal!

■ Take it out of the neighborhoods and schools – get it regulated and taxed. Alcohol is much worse and kills more people.

■ Yes! As long as there is a provision for regulation for growing/possession amount and taxation on sales (including medicinal).
