I believe it should be legalized. Paul should start fixing his own state, KY.

@Deen Ahmed........Get off your self-righteous pulpit. Until you can prove you are a 'success' don't lecture others. The world is already too polluted with pompous egotists ruining all our lives.

Rand Paul is right. Pot is no worse than alcohol and neither should be mixed with work is legal and commonplace whereas the other is ILLEGAL and commonplace.

I'm still waiting for a Dem to start flinging mud at Rand since he's doing what they're supposed to.

@ Patrick Cameron: "Jobs aren't really geared towards peoples interests, which is sad"
Are you serious? Since when did jobs need to geared towards peoples interests. They are things which need to be done not your pre-school play groups. Do you even know what is your passion? Do you have the entrepreneurial spirit to be a job creator? From the sounds of it people like you would rather do nothing if it isnt playing video games. And those who bother to show up and clean the toilets we all use, say thanks, otherwise we would have to use dirty toilets. Jokers.

The presidents didn't avoid prison due to being lucky, they had elite social connections!
