If given the choice would you make cigarettes illegal to legalize marihuana?

Of course.

Smoking is a filthy habit and the less of it the better. Not sure what marihuana is, perhaps it is how people spell marijuana after they have had too much of it?

If people have too much marijuana, they can't spell it at all.... they are too busy eating or laughing to be able to spell anything. I suppose my comment got me nowhere... we still don't know what marihuana is. I already gave up cigarettes, but would have to legalise marijuana

Absolutely. Of course I'm not a smoker (of cigarettes) so this would be an easy choice for me.

Today's cigarettes are unhealth(ier) than what they originally were. Now they're full of tar and cyanide and all kinds of other chemicals. Why those chemicals have been added, I really don't know? Maybe to add longer shelf life? Filler and less actual tobacco? Not sure.

If marijuana is legalized and Marlboro, Camel, whoever decides to mass produce them, won't they be filled with the same crap that makes cigarettes so evil that no one can smoke them anywhere in public? Once legal it's not like people are still going to buy weed from the 21yr old college kid. They'll be buying them in CircleK and Walmart and Kroger's and they'll be just as disgusting a habit as tobacco cigarettes.

Have you read any of my stories? Half of half of them were written when I was stoned and my spelling was perfect and never requited any editing when I was the opposite of stoned, whatever that may be.

As for the original question, I'm one of those nutters who thinks that all drugs should be legal. Imagine the money governments could make if they were, for one. Research into cannabis and other drugs could be properly funded and profited from. List of reasons goes on and I can't be arsed listing them all. I shall say no more on this matter.

I dont smoke cigarettes so it would be an easy choice for me. Although making tobacco illegal would pretty much kill the economy in North Carolina. Even if they replaced the tobacco crop with marijuana.

But if it was legalized, Im sure the government would so over tax it that there would still be a market to buy it illegally.

Legalize pot and use the taxes raised for improving health care, infrastructure and job creation..get the money out of the hands of criminals. The amount of money wasted on controlling pot is ridiculous and completely ineffective. I could live without cigarettes.

If I had a choice, yes, cigarettes should be illegal. I was a smoker for many many years. So glad to get that monkey off my back! I've smoked cannabis most of my life. It's a plant. Hello. Follow the dollars. That is why cannabis is illegal, in my opinion. I don't call it marijuana because I don't get mine from MEXICO, which is where the name "marijuana" comes from. Let's call it by it's rightful name and decriminalize it, not make more laws to control it. Again, I repeat, it is a plant. A very useful plant with many many medicinal properties.

Tobacco is also a plant.

The only "medicinal" properties of recreational use I know of are: decreased reaction time, poor judgement, increased appetite, damage to short term memory and a desire to post stupid memes on Facebook rationalizing drug use.

The last one is just from personal experience and several blocked people. I hopes it's not common. dontknow

I knew someone who smoked a lot of weed. It fucked him up big time and he had to check into a clinic.

Being stoned has never agreed with me so I have no fondness for it.

Much prefer booze. Beer, wine, whisky.

i'm the opposite. never knew anyone killed by a stoned driver, beat up by a stoned boyfriend, or died from alchohol poisoning from smoking too much pot.

Are you sure that nobody has ever driven a car while stoned on pot and caused a fatal accident?

As for becoming violent, of course pot smokers don't get violent, Tetrtahydracannabinal is an anesthesia, it relaxes you. The problem I have seen with most pot heads is getting them motivated to do anything. I had college roommates that did nothing but smoke pot, eat and sleep. Strangely enough, they flunked out of college fairly quickly.

How can you get alcohol poisoning from something that contains no alcohol? Personally I have no idea if anybody can overdose on pot. I do know of cases where people were forced to drink large amounts of water and actually died from water overdoses so I would conclude that a person can overdose from too much pot.

So in conclusion, go ahead and do all the drugs you like. I personally don't really care because you are adults and what you do to yourselves is none of my business and I don't want it to be my business. Now when you reach the end of your life and you realize how much time you wasted being wasted and how much of your life is gone simply because you destroyed too many memory brain cells from your drug use I hope you remember that nobody really gives a damn.

Cigarettes addictive, Marijuana addictive I would never chose one for the other, It's sometimes nice to have a change.

Decades of scientific agricultural engineering went into producing tobacco that is much more addictive than it originally was so that the tobacco companies could grow their businesses and make higher profits. Since it is much more addictive smokers smoke much more often. The modern cigarette is a very dangerous thing.

You can also imagine what smoking unfiltered marijuana for many years will do to your lungs. Years of consuming the THC from marijuana has its effects also. Have you noticed how regular users of marijuana slowly lose their ambition to accomplish anything in life?
