Marijuana soon to be legal (decriminalized, at least)?

I've been watching closely the candidates for President this year and it seems a lot of them are actually opposing the federal War on Drugs! It's not just the independents or just one guy saying it, it seems about 5 or 6 of them are actually against it! A surprising thing is that most of the people who oppose it are Republicans with only about 2 Democrats saying they don't really support it. The most notable of them was Ron Paul, he vows to push the get the laws done with immediately and who also would push to get rid of other unfair laws in our society. Do you guys think this is a step-forward for us, or do you think it's just BS like normal? It just seems every year that we're getting closer and closer to stopping this war. I hope this Ron guy gets elected, he seems pretty damn intelligent from what I've seen!

some information on Pon Paul

FUCK THE ILLEGAL WAR ON DRUGS

I think it would be a very brave act of a politician to come out openly in a Federal election to support the legalisation or decriminalisation of marijuana. That is what makes Ron Paul so special, in that he has the moral fortitude to speak the truth, rather than pandering to the moral majority.
As for the moral majority, look what happened to Paris Hilton. Those folks who must have pressured the police and prosecutors would not bat an eye if it were not one of their own on trial. Given the smae circumstances with a normal individual, they would have called for the death penalty.
Winning against the moral majority is an onerous and complex task.

I like what I've seen of him. I think America could make good progress with him as president, and I mean that in general, not just with the pathetic war on drugs.

He wants to leave Iraq immediately because he supports a non-interventionalist government. We invaded Iraq unconstitutionally by entering without a declaration by congress.

yes, ron paul has some great ideas. i am a very liberal man and i agree with most of the things he says. however, you do not want him as our president right now, trust me. and he will never get elected anyway, he has absolutely no chance. hes just too radical man, and most of the shit he says will never happen and many will probably not work under today's government and today's popular opinion. the president is not a dictator, we have a system of checks and balances and i can assure you the other 2 branches of govt will not allow much of the stuff he proposes.

a good thing to know is that i belive all democratic candidates have spoken against the war on drugs, including some republicans as well. that gives us a good chance of seeing some change to federal law eventually. many are more serious about it than others tho, so we'll see.
