DUI revenue would drop instantly, incarceration costs would drop instantly, liver disease deaths would drop instantly, alcohol lobbying would drop instantly, insurance payments would drop, alcohol related violence would slightly drop, big alcohol sales would take a hit as local communities went to local breweries for quality,

The biggest lobbies against legalization are Alcohol, Big Pharma, and Police/Prison unions. It's absolutely disgusting that we're keeping it illegal, locking people up, and making people suffer just for the profits of these assholes.

Yep. I had a 8-10 beers after work habit that I couldn't kick for years. Heard of other people switching from alcohol to weed and tried it out. It worked instantly in my case. I only smoked a gram a week and that was it. After a few years of that I quit weed and now I'm completely sober.

Same here. I didn't drink often, but I could drink a lot: 12- 18 talls or a half gallon of vodka down to two fingers. Shit was not doing me any good. So I switched to weed. Not completely, at first, but I quickly found that I only drank 1 or 2 talls after smoking weed so I put down the alcohol over 3 months ago and haven't picked it back up since. I physically feel a whole lot better now. It's truly amazing and totally unexpected that I could divorce MY OWN SELF from alcohol without the need of a doctor or the need of a "Trojan horse of complications" pharmaceutical.

Do you still use a substance for pain management/alleviation?

Just leave people and their drugs alone as long as they're not hurting anyone but arguably or actually themselves. I don't go through life totally high, nor would I advocate for it, still as far as the choices of others....

If you've got a moral, ethical, spiritual, religious, whatever qualms with drugs that's fine, but my ancestors didn't come to this country because they needed a new nanny, or nanny-state to control their lives. Even I'll tell people who are less informed what the Bible says about drugs, the importance of sobriety, etc. but at the end of the day I have no right to try to subvert people's free will, even if certain drugs do subvert people's free will.

My father has hardcore bipolar and anxiety. He got prescribed a litany of meds to those issues and of course, another bunch for side effects of them. Instantly hooked. Ended up getting pretty fucked up and becoming an alcoholic in the process. He ruined every friendship and family relationship he had except for me. Then he found weed. Now he doesn't have anxiety problems, bipolar problems or problems with alcohol and he threw all of his prescription drugs that were ruining his life away. I'm so happy he found pot.

Did crack for a solid year after a few years of heavy coke use. I watched it start to rot my fantastic soul away. When I decided to change I wanted it to be just Mary Jane and I. Now I'm doing quite well for myself and cannabis was a major factor in my mental health and all around sanity.

Drug addiction is big business.

Alcohol is the gateway drug. I never got high and woke up with some ugly skank. This being said, weed is not an opiate and will not help many with legit chronic pain. Take my word for it. But its a great thing to add with meds.
