    Well, nothing wrong with it, duo you think monks in India and Nepal are not puffing? Others would not do it. It is like Alcohol, Tobacco. What is a big deal.

    It's my understanding that "legalizing", in most case, means authorizing the legal sale of it. But, like alcholoic beverages, they marijuana may not be consumed in public. It is to be consumed in a private indoor setting. Not sure how that applies to smoking a bone in your backyard as you barbecue a beef brisket, though.

    I always thought Sarah Palin already was showing the effects of a perpetual buzz. The real danger, according to Bill O'Reilly, is that marijuana leads to texting on cell phones.
