Of course, there is absolutely no reason for it to be illegal considering alcohol is legal.

Vermont Senate votes to decriminalize marijuana

MONTPELIER, Vermont ó The Vermont Senate has approved legislation that would remove criminal penalties and replace them with civil fines like a traffic ticket for possession of up to an ounce of marijuana.

By a vote of 24-6, the Senate on Tuesday gave preliminary approval to a bill similar to one that already has passed the House.

The Senate version has some differences from the bill that passed the House, among them that fines would increase for a second or third and subsequent offenses.

The Senate bill also contains a provision under which someone profiting from the sale of marijuana could face enhanced penalties for not paying taxes on the income from drug sales.

Colorado legislature gives final approval to historic marijuana bills

Quote:
If Gov. John Hickenlooper signs the four major bills on marijuana that the legislature passed this year — and he has indicated he will — this is what the future will hold:

• Marijuana will be sold in specially licensed stores that can also sell pot-related items like pipes. Only Colorado residents can own or invest in the stores, and only current medical-marijuana dispensary owners can apply to open recreational pot shops for the first nine months. The first stores will open around Jan. 1, 2014.

• Colorado residents will be able to buy up to an ounce of marijuana — the maximum it is legal for non-medical-marijuana patients to possess — at the stores. Out-of-staters can buy only a quarter-ounce at a time. Pot must be sold in child-resistant packages with labels that specify potency. Edible marijuana products will have serving-size limits.

• Voters will have the option of imposing heavy taxes on pot sales. A ballot measure set for November will ask voters to approve a 15 percent excise tax and an initial 10 percent sales tax on marijuana. The excise tax will fund school construction. The sales tax will pay for regulation of marijuana stores.

• Incorporated marijuana collectives will be banned. So, too, will marijuana coffee shops, marijuana smoking in bars and government-run marijuana stores. And, though Colorado will have the most liberal laws for marijuana use and sales in the country, it will have the most restrictive laws in the country for marijuana-themed magazines, which, like pornography, will have to be kept behind the counter. Publications such as High Times and The Daily Doobie have vowed to sue.

• Finally, Colorado drivers for the first time will be subject to a stoned-driving limit. Juries will be allowed to presume that anyone testing above the limit was too high to drive.

Aye. People are getting wise. The DEA love to talk a big game but after a point they simply won't have the manpower or ability to back it up.

But that's ok, there are still plenty of legitimately dangerous narcotics out there for them to concentrate on without wasting vast amounts of resources chasing potheads.

If and once the US legalizes it, I am guessing many countries will follow. It was basically the US strong arming every other country into making it illegal in the 60s

Well it's not exactly a ban. One measure would limit the # of dispensaries to the original 135, the other would allow any number but tax them more heavily.

Yup, read this earlier. Of particular note:

The difference in risk is likely related to chemical additives in commercial cigarettes that arenít present in most methods of inhaling marijuana smoke.

Nah the formaldehyde is just for flavor. The cyanide when burned gives it that awesome, noir-ish blue tint to the smoke. All perfectly necessary ingredients for the serious smoker.

I'm by no means a marijuana detractor but doesn't tar build up from smoke in general lead to a greater likelihood of having some pulmonary damage.

Cannabis has anti-cancer agents. I think it's in the THC.
