So should topics that discuss Obama be next? They fall into the same pit with the remarks. What about terrorism and religion? They all do the same. What is the difference that makes drug topics so dangerous?

I have seen far worse comments in the religious topics or those about racism or sexism than i have ever seen in any drug related topic.
I wonder where this will lead...

Nice side track. Do you see danger in taxing something that should be free?

The difference being, in most other threads, people aren't going on about how much fun it was to get "so totally blasted, man" on whatever their drug of choice is.
These people are, or rather were, in the minority. That much is true. But it doesn't take many to ruin it for everyone else.
I don't think the government will ever legalize pot or any other substance... there is too much profit to be made from the "war on drugs." Instead I think the "under-30" crowd has been thrown a distracting bone during these exceptionally stressful times. Look around... how much as the legalization issue dominated other sites that are popular in the culture? Shouldn't we be focused on more important issues? We're on the precipice of financial armageddon that will effect everyone world-wide, and suddenly pot legalization becomes a dominant story? Come on. It's obvious.

...t's amazing how drug related topics can trump sexism, homophobia, racism, etc. And the bad thing is that these kinds of topics are way more prevalent than the few who talk about their illegal drug experiences...
