I support legalization but this is a step in the right direction. Pot should be treated no different than alcohol. We waste too many resources and tax money chasing down pot heads.

Congress is a corrupt worthless organization. The GOP is filled with cowards who are afraid to confront Obama's lawlessness and the democrats are a bunch of regressive liberal socialists who go along with Obama's socialist agenda to the detriment of America and freedom. As has been said many times, "Politicians are like diapers. They both should be changed often and for the same reason."

Students wonder why they have to take history classes. It's so we can remember what our forebears did to make our lives what they are. Thank you to all who served for our freedom.
