Decriminalization does not mean legal. If this happens there will still be consequences for worse offenses but also more treatment opportunities expanding the opportunity for successful sobriety.

As a veteran federal law enforcement officer for 22 years, I can tell you that incarceration for mere drug 'possession' (not dealing) is way harsh & doesn't work. Definitely increase trtmt funding.

The majority of crime investigated by law enforcement is a result of drug use, such as assaults, theft, burglary, etc. In addition, there is already drug treatment available to those who truly want it

There should be more emphasis on treatment, but it should still be a crime. Serve your time in jail then go to rehab.

Decriminalization would be like refusing to give vaccines in an epidemic and only treating the ill. The health system would be overwhelmed. And that is where we are with drug addiction.

Analogy makes no sense.

Decriminalizing just increases drug use. Look at the mess in California!

My wife and I document our blood pressure and weight every morning. I think it helps us stay conscious of our health. and eating habits.

I go for annual doctor visits, and my BP is always stable, so I don't check it at home.

I already keep them locked up, except for the one I carry. It makes sense

I would totally agree. Anything to keep guns safe from kids of ANY age. Whether it be in a store or home, it just makes sense in this scary day and age.

Why would you deny gun owners their safety. I say lockup liberals and we would all be safer.

******I am a liberal Democrat woman of color. I have a gun to protect myself and a gun to exercise a right equal to voting. An intruder will not have his or her gun locked. Nor will I.

My fire arms are secured by the locks on my home. That is all they will ever be secured by.

Not until the powers that be can write a gun storage law that is reasonable, logical, enforceable, and proven to be effective!

Because it's not rediculasly over reaching. The Communist bastards are still not addressing the real problem, MENTAL ISSUES AND ILLNESSES. It isn't the fault of the lawabiding citizens.

If there is a gun in the house everyone should be taught gun safety. Locking them up prevents using it if someone breaks in with intent to harm.

Teach children at an early age about gun safety. If your gun is locked away it does you no good if you need it to protect your family.

If someone breaks into my house, I'm going to need it right then and there. I'm not going through the time to unlock my gun to protect myself and family.

While safe gun storage is a good idea, there is absolutely NO way to enforce this. So why??

We don't need another gun law. Criminals won't wait for me to unlock my gun before they act. This is absolutely ridiculous.
