Do you think the prohibition of marijuana today is the same as the prohibition of alcohol in the early 20th century?

Prohibition of marijuana is more like the prohibition of every other illegal drug. Alcohol prohibition started organized crime.

Umm... well seeing as marijuana was prohibited for much much longer than alcohol i would have to say no... And with ciggarette smoking becoming more and more frowned upon, i don't think it will ever be legal.. but heres hoping..!! [:)

In the sense that neither works, yes.

Um... the columbian cartel is organized crime and they sell cocaine so i don't see your point.

My point is that making any desirable substace illegal instantly creates a black market for it which is ran by organized crime and is no different than the situtation prohibition made.

As long as drugs are illegal, there will be crime as a result of it. There is NO end to the war on drugs.

No, not at all. Marijuana is alot more harmful to your body than alcohol is.

Not really. Alcohol's pretty bad for you.

Agreed. Marijuana doesn't give you hangovers or kill your liver and it's virtually impossible to OD on.

I think most people think marijuana leads to other drugs, which it doesn't necessarily. I'd rather smoke a doobie than drink.

It can lead to other harder more harmful stuff, but if it were legalised that wouldn't be a problem because people wouldn't have to buy pot from drug dealers who carry those kinds of drugs.

Do they deal with pot? Uh, no. Thanks, I don't see your point.

They did, until they realized that cocaine was easier to ship and was a more profitable business.

There are criminal organizations who manufacture and sell marijuana and other drugs, DaWeirdo.

I know people already said this, but you're totally wrong. Alcohol is pure poison, it ravages your body. Marijuana is a natural herb with many medicinal properties. There are no medicinal properties to alcohol, besides it being used for disenfecting.

The only way to stop the war is to stop the fight.

No, alcohol was culturally ingrained with many people for various reasons, people poke smot for the hell of it, this question is nucking futs.

Marijana is, in most cases, actually less harmful than booz or cigs. I don't understand the point of it all, there are worse things for you that are legal.

I agree with the many people who say that marijuana isnt as bad for you as alcohol...it comes from a plant that is all natural, unlike cigarettes that have the addictive drug "nicotine" in it. Also marijuana isnt near as harmful to your lungs as cigarettes.
As far as the prohibition being the same as the one against alcohol, i dont believe that it is the same because marijuana is considered an illegal "drug" and alcohol isnt a drug. I do think more people want to smoke marijuana because it is illegal though (versus things that are not illegal)

What a useless argument. All natural plants can be deadly.

Anyway, I don't think it's the same, as marijuana has been illegal longer than most people can remember. Prohibition of alcohol was sudden and people couldn't adjust.
