Don: What's your definition of a drug? The common definition is "a substance which alters the body and/or mind." Tobacco may be considered a drug. Alcohol is DEFINITELY considered a drug. Yet, we keep one (or two) legal. There is no logical reason for keeping pot illegal. As for cigarettes being a gateway to alcohol and alcohol being a gateway to pot, if you can find this site, you can find evidence of these facts.

I hate to start something here with a trite phrase. But sometimes you read about things that make you wonder what some people are smoking.

In Colorado this year a cabal of known associates is getting together to try to legalize the sale, cultivation and possession of marijuana under what’s known as Amendment 64.

Their pitch says that by state regulation and control of dope deals, the consequent revenue collected can benefit K-12 education in the state, now under tight budget constraints.

Yeah, you heard that right: Make pot legal and build schools with the first $40 million in...
