Marijuana certainly has proven medical benefits, so I favor its legalization as a medication available only with a prescription. However, I oppose its use for recreational purposes, particularly when used by young people with still-developing brains. Driving under the influence of marijuana is particularly dangerous due to slow reflexes and short-term memory loss. Society may also suffer from legalization because heavy use often saps motivation and ambition, leaving us with users who become dependent on others for their financial support.

No! We see what it has done to states like CO, WA, and OR. Marijuana is THE gateway drug. It stunts mental maturity growth and effectively creates a welfare dependent class.

Say no to drugs!

Out here in California, illegal marijuana growing operations are harmful in several ways. Pot plants require LOTS of water, and that's water that is desperately needed for other things and plants like food crops - some orchard owners have even had to stop watering 1/3 of their trees (like almonds!) which is a huge investment lost in dead trees, because of water restrictions.

Illegal pot growers "farm" in hidden forest areas so there is the destruction of forest and the possibility of fires starting as well, from makeshift camping.

If that weren't enough, it's been discovered that many of the "workers" are the illegal border crossers (like in Texas recently) brought in by organized crime to work the pot plantations. These workers essentially become modern-day slaves as they do not have any identification/documentation and can't speak English, so they can't choose to simply run away and find other work - they would stand out. They do not have other family already settled here to relocate to. They are trapped and now dependent on their overseers for all their needs.

NO to illegal pot!

Per CannaLaw in California 53% of our counties legally grow, commercially, marijuana.

With our current Democrat leadership I doubt that if anyone is growing pot in a hidden place is dealt with because it appears that our Democrats do not believe anyone, unless you are a Republican, break the law.

Lesson to be learned: Get Republicans and Independents off their butts to vote the Democrats out of office AND be aggressive observers at the polls and Registrar of Voters!

In Alabama, the 2021 legislature passed a "pot" law allowing for dispensaries to sell certain products with THC in them and for hemp to be grown. This is a "foot-in-the-door" for drug cartels, no doubt. There is now an effort to repeal SB46 in AL in 2022 to stop the scourge of marijuana use in our state. "Pot" laws in the States of CA, OR, WA and CO have been in effect for several years. Regulation and oversight is impossible for government/law enforcement to manage. Evidence of drug cartel activity in these states have been reported. The City of San Francisco recently suspended cannabis tax to help dispensaries compete with drug dealers. While patients can obtain "medical" marijuana by prescription by medical doctors, unregulated products containing THC are now available to the public without any oversight, regulation, content, label warnings, or stated side effects on the packaging. All in the name of more tax money in state coffers. This is such a tragedy inflicted upon a vulnerable society seeking relief from medical conditions and must be stopped.

The classic mind games existed decades ago, who still remembers well now? I don't want to talk about their appeal but about the value, they bring to players. In addition to being highly entertaining, mind games also help us passively train our brains, and I think that's very helpful. One of those classic games is Sudoku, currently, sudoku is being collected by Sudoku Puzzles and is completely free for everyone. Why don't we try to experience and evaluate this game when the benefits it brings are undeniable?
