no, it needs to be legal, but regulated, if not crap loads of people would OD and despite the comic value that holds, it would be pretty bad.

lol, if you want to read about exactly why prohibition does not work then you should read about California's attempts to ban all tobacco products in prison...

Black Market In Tobacco Makes Prisons More Violent

New America Media, Commentary, Dwight E. Abbott, Posted: Apr 14, 2007

Editor’s Note: The new ban on tobacco products in California state prisons has created a valuable black market commodity --with all the dangers that go with it, writes Dwight Abbott. Abbott is serving a long prison sentence at Salinas Valley State Prison in Soledad, California. His book, “I Cried, You Didn’t Listen,” about growing up in the California Youth Authority in the 1950s, has just been republished by AK Press.

SALINAS VALLEY STATE PRISON, Soledad, Calif. -- The Department of Corrections (and Rehabilitation) knew it was going to happen before it banned tobacco products from California prisons. An “experiment” was conducted for several years earlier in the California Medical Facility state prison in Vacaville banning all tobacco. Within weeks, tobacco was being smuggled into the prison by visitors and guards. One $10, six-ounce can of Bugler tobacco then sold for $50.00, gradually increasing to $300.00. Individual cigarettes or “rollies” (400 can be made), first priced at $1.00, became $10.00 each. Three months passed, and a pack of Camel cigarettes was selling for $150.00 plus. Violence erupted as profits proved tobacco to be more valuable than drugs. Everybody wanted a piece of the action.

No matter those disheartening findings, to “improve working conditions and cut health care cost among inmates,” the DOC bulled forward: there would be no smoking by inmates or guards beginning July, 2005. The results, as expected, mirror exactly what occurred at the California Medical Facility. Black marketing of tobacco became more profitable than marijuana or heroin, with penalties — if caught — a misdemeanor criminal offense, at worst. “So what if I get caught? What are they going to do to me?” asked one mother. “My son smokes, I smoke, and I won’t be in jail but a minute, if that.”

“Hell, my family was smuggling drugs in to me so I can help support them. Now, they bring me tobacco instead. We are living better, and they don’t have to worry about going to jail on a felony,” bragged one prison friend of mine.

Lt. K. Calhoun, a correctional officer at Northern Sierra prison camp, told one reporter, “I’ve never seen anything like it. A pack of cigarettes sells for $125.00!”

At 172,000 convicts, California has the largest prison population in our nation, filled with some of the most criminally sophisticated men and women in this country. Rather than limiting prisoners to “smokeless” tobacco products only, as most of the other states have done, state officials decided California would be one of only a few states to ban all tobacco products.

“We’re going to get ours,” one “gangster” told me. “Money is good.”

“Yeah,” his comrade followed up. “DOC knew what they were starting. All it has to do now to stop it is allow ‘smokeless’ products like the other states do.”

Tobacco will always be in prisons, just as there has always been every kind of illegal drug. There has been an increase in family members and friends willing to smuggle tobacco in, viewing it as a harmless pastime for incarcerated loved ones who have few to no other pleasures.

Inmates caught smoking risk little to no discipline. Most of the guards who once smoked here are now chewing tobacco (a violation) while others continue to smoke, discretely, when working. They are not going out of their way to enforce a law they view as ridiculous, and for the most part unenforceable.

Inmates on outside work crews pick up cigarette butts along the roadside and smuggle them back into the prisons where other inmates line up to buy the tobacco that has been culled. Brawls have broken out between different groups, and there have been a number of violent assaults as groups argued over who would get how much.

Recently, at the maximum-security prison at Pelican Bay, a convict who had been paroled hours earlier was found sneaking back onto prison grounds holding a pillowcase filled with 50 ounces of tobacco worth nearly $10,000. He had intended to throw it over the institution’s fence where his associates were waiting to retrieve it.

“It’s becoming a better market than drugs,” shared Correctional Officer Hawkes, an anti-gang coordinator at Pelican Bay. Actually, from where this writer sits, it already is.

A guard at Solano State Prison was discovered smuggling tobacco. He admitted earning “several hundreds of dollars each week” in this way. A prison cook at Folsom Prison chose to quit his job after plastic bags filled with tobacco were found in the pockets of his jacket. He admitted to earning approximately $1,000 a week. “It was more than I was being paid by the DOC to cook for the inmates.”

Another Folsom prison chef admitted she was being given $300 for every six-ounce can of rolling tobacco she smuggled into the prison. The convicts were having money orders mailed to her address.

“I didn’t see any harm in it,” she said. “It’s not like I was bringing in the heroin and crystal meth these guys get.”

“How you going to stop it?” questioned one guard. “We can’t keep narcotics out of here, and God knows we try. Personally, I’m not busting an inmate smoking a cigarette in his cell calming his nerves.”

“Corrections has always gone overboard, as if to punish the inmates as much as possible,” explained one of the doctors at Salinas Valley Prison. “It appears the U.S. states that ban smoking but not chewing tobacco do not have the additional problems California has created for itself.”

He is correct. Known for cutting off its nose to spite its face, the DOC has added additional and unnecessary woes to a system already burdened with trouble. As a result of its own actions, inmate violence has risen, which increases costs — along with the dangers that prison guards face every day as different groups vie to control the lucrative black market created by making all tobacco products into contraband.

I have no idea who you are, but honestly, your posts give me hope for society, because the amount of mentally retarded people on this board is absurd. The people who run our countries should have more logic like this.

Anyway, weed should be legalized, but I could care less if it was legalized because I'll buy and smoke it regardless. I live in Canada, 2 weeks ago I went driving and blazed a joint with a buddy, we pulled out of a parking lot and a cop saw us and pulled us over. I was high as hell and not only convinced him of some huge elaborate story, but managed to avoid a search or anything else. Weed is harmless. I don't drink alcohol very often, I used to when I was younger, but I've grown out of it. If anything, I wouldn't be disappointed if the legality between alcohol and weed were swapped. And honestly, if weed is legalized, it doesn't mean that real drugs like coke or meth should be legalized, I don't consider weed a drug, it's a herb!

Same for me. And I don't like to drink that much anymore, so it's hard to get the social part. I don't mind being social, I'd just rather have people come over and chill out here, saves money, saves annoying bar scene..etc..

About as close as they get is freaking out and thinking they are going to die even though they are in no real danger. A buddy of mine smoked out a friend who didn't smoke that often. They were out in his parking garage. He ran inside to use the bathroom and when he came out the guy was gone. He didn't think much of it but later on he found out the guy freaked out and walked to the nearby hospital because he thought he couldn't breathe. ODing on weed just means that you are uncomfortably high.

This happened recently and very publicly in the case of the cop who took some marijuana off a subject and then brought it home and he and his wife made brownies with it. Then it rocked their socks and they called 911 thinking they were dying from an overdose of weed.

Yes, there is audio. Just in case someone hadn't already heard of this.
