Indifferent. Does it really NEED to be legal, though? Is it that big of an issue  :dunno:

I feel like any ag- heavy state is insane to not legalize.

I may be out of the loop here, but wouldn't legal weed be good for Texas, especially those that are so gung-ho on cracking down on illegal immigration? I know most of the best stuff is Made in the USA these days, but wouldn't legalization put the guys trafficking tons of brick-weed across the border out of business.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I don't think you know very much about Texas politics, and that's OK.

Legalized weed would be good for Texas but so would legalized gambling and that's never coming to Texas either.

Seems like Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, both shitty Carolinas, etc would all be super quick to want to be able to legally grow this stuff.   :dunno:

Too bad Jesus was well known in his dislike of week, I guess.

I am in favor of it being illegal. We don't need to legalize more crap that only makes people stupider and lazier. We've already got more than enough of that.

Kind of where I'm at, although I think most reasonable people would say it should probably be legal. It's just not something that is all that important to most of us. That's bad for the relative few who are going balls-out for legalization, because those in opposition seem pretty hardline against it.

Apathy, I guess.

On further thought, if I took all the people I know who would be either staunchly opposed to legal weed against those who favor legalization, I'd definitely say the pro-weed crowd includes many more people that I actually like and enjoy being around than the anti-weed group.

You're stances are so weird. Obv. smart, but where you fall from issue to issue is beyond me.

Cons that are against it are def weird.  I mean, they want the public out of their wallet but can't get enough public in their bedrooms or rec rooms.

I don't really care that much either way, but I definitely don't like the idea of arresting people for smoking pot. So I'd say that it should be decriminalized at the very least. Legalizing it and getting the tax revenue would be ideal, though.

Huh?

Texas will almost certainly be the last state.  When it comes down to it, Texas politicians will cry with defiance that the "Republic of Texas" will be the lone star standing against the liberalization of modern society.

Nah Texas will eventually decriminalize it or something because of the whole "fiscal responsibility" argument

It's always the same flippant, ignorant "dur, you're a big government hypocrite" response. I'd be much more libertarian if I wasn't expected to pay for this lazy lifestyle on the other end. Dramatically reduce welfare so that I'm not paying for your meals, housing, and healthcare, and you're free to live the rest of your life in a drug-addled daze.

It's also possible that if smoking weed weren't giving people criminal records and making them undesirable to some employers that it would be easier for them to pull on their bootstraps and get to work.

I don't think there will be a "last state" holdout, it will probably come from the federal level so there will be multiple "last states", kind of like gay marriage.

And I know plenty of highly motivated weed smokers. I actually don't know any lazy weed smokers, because smoking cali weed is an expensive habit.
