    Question: Is smoking weed (marijuana) legal in some States?

    Answer: No. Every State, from Alabama, Colorado, Kentucky to Vermont, including Arizona and every State in between, has enacted various criminal penalties for the possession, use, cultivation, transportation and distribution, of marijuana, including even the smallest of quantities.

    Arizona punishes possession of amounts less than two pounds as a class six felony with fines between $750 and $150,000 and jail or prison time from six months to a year and a half.

    A few States have decriminalized marijuana use and possession in small amounts (N. Carolina and California for example) but even there, its still illegal.

    Marijuana shud not be legal cuz i dont need the government to tell me wut i can and cant do. Pot is 100 percent natural it was created along with everything else so it has a meaning.It makes me smarter and wiser and it makes me understand life.Sweet sweet ganja tastes so good and gives you unimaginale pleasure. Weed is not addictive like heroin, cocaine, meth, etc. Come on now marijuana helps with trouble eating, sleeping, concintrating, depression etc.helps cancer, glaucacoma,aids etc.It was put on this planet for a reason this is mother natures masterpice.

    If the country legalized weed and taxed it the same way that we tax tobacco and alcohol, we would have enough money to provide universal health care and pay of the national debt that our president put us in. And its not as bad for you as half the stuff you find in your kids classroom or under the sink.
