Should Alabama Legalize Marijuana?

A recent poll on al.com had the interesting result that a majority of the Alabamians polled were in favor of legalizing marijuana.

My guess is that this majority would be overrepresented in the  "wet" counties, and underrepresented in the "dry" counties.

Some other points of interest:

1.  Republicans were 61% of those polled; Democrats 39%.


2.  A simple majority reported using marijuana at one time; but most were not present users.

3.  Many (65%) of the people polled saw it as a convenient "sin tax" or source of revenue.

4.  Although medical marijuana usage was never brought before the legislature, about 10% could see it as a possibility.

5.  Only 10% were completely opposed to marijuana being legalized.

So, will some brave soul in the Legislature go out on a limb and draft a bill?   It would take big balls, or big boobs, to do it.


Don't bogart that joint, my friend.

  1. They see it as a way for the state to operate without resulting in higher taxes for them personally.

    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-diary milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a few days.


    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:
