I've never seen weed make a person violent. If anything it makes people more mellow and lazy. I wouldn't want legalization to go any further than marijuana. But aren't you conservative types the ones who are always bitching about getting the government out of peoples lives? Marijuana is much less destructive than other things that are legal, such as alcohol and gambling. The casinos popping up everywhere are far more damaging to society than someone sitting on their couch smoking a joint.
