    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 should be legalized. The only reason it isn't, is because it can't be taxed acordingly. It makes no sense that a man made drug such as vidacin or even tylenol is legal but can really damage the person taking it. A person can become addicted to a man made drug before becoming addicted to marijuana but these man made drugs are actually prescribed to people..why...because the government makes money off of it. why would alcohol, prescription drugs, cigarettes, and many others be legalized when there after effects and damages are far worse than any of those of smoking weed.

    Yeah is helps with a lof of ilnesses but that particular person with the illness needs it. it doesn't matter if drinking and marijuana have the same risk, if you can decrease the number of deaths and sickness by illegalizing something you do it. just because it's legal, it doesn't mean it is right.
