    People who look down upon marijuana have absolutely NO reason to. Yes, it may make you hungry and lazy, but it does not make you a worse person in any way. Before I smoked pot, I was an angry adolescent who thought the world was out to get her. Now, having been a chronic stoner/pot smoker for 6 years, I am a more calm and loving person, and have just completed my first year of University. Take THAT society!!

    Agreed. I myself have been smoking for 8 years now. I have a masters in political science and starting my internship at a consulting company. It should be legalized…..

    First off congrats Alexandra thats great! I dont understand why the government cant just see what it does for people. It helps so many people that need it, and we need it to be legalized now more than ever. Yes we do have good medicine for these illness’s but marijuana seems to be the best. So for all those politicians out there why dont you stop and think for once. The war on drugs puts too many people with possession of marijuana in jail and we also spend too much money fighting this. We can help lower our debt and have a much more safe world by focusing more on our bigger crimes such as murder. So please just stop and think about it.

    I am proud to say I smoke Marijuana.

    Prohibition of any kind doesn’t work, and that is because prohibition is a regulation of morality.

    It isn’t finding justice, saving money or even keeping people from hurting themselves. Prohibition is the censorship of morality and any government body cannot be successful in that pursuit. The Temperance Movement was a religious movement to drive out the evils of America. At the time that evil was alcohol — people weren’t just opposed to alcohol but also to apples — which were almost exclusively grown to make alcohol.

    People started taking axes to apple trees all over the country and a campaign was waged against the “devil’s fruit.” Luckily the war against apples was never taken as far as the war against marijuana. I am going to cover the reasons given why marijuana is illegal.

    Marijuana is bad for your health, that’s why it is illegal. Possibly related:

    Dr. Leslie Iversen has published a new book titled The Science of Marijuana. Dr. Iversen, from Oxford University’s department of pharmacology, said in his book, “Cannabis is a safer drug than aspirin and can be used long term without serious side effects.” In his book he said he found that many of the “myths” that surround marijuana use – — such as links to mental illness or infertility and extreme addictiveness — are not scientifically supported.

    In fact, Iversen found cannabis was far less toxic than other drugs like heroin, tobacco, cocaine and even alcohol.

    Iversen writes, “By any standard, THC must be considered a very safe drug both acutely and on long-term exposure.”

    He also found that “stoned” drivers posed less of a danger than drunk ones. Iversen said the side effects of cannabis are as follows, “cannabis does not cause structural damage to the brains of animals as some reports had claimed, nor is there evidence of long-term damage to the human brain or other, than slight residual impairments in cognitive function after drug use is stopped.” He also said the notion that long-term cannabis use is harmful should finally be put to rest.

    He said that a lot of the negative effects that come from marijuana are a result of smoking the drug. Cannabis itself does not appear to cause cancer and poses almost no threat of mortality.

    Even compared with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory compounds, otherwise known as aspirin — which reportedly kills upwards of 16,000 people annually according to the American Journal of Gastroenterology — marijuana kills zero annually — according to the Department of Justice.

    Iversen is a member of the prestigious Royal Society, or the UK’s national academy of science, and his book is more than certainly going to force the British government to reconsider the legal classification of cannabis.

    Marijuana is an evil that must be vanquished at any price.

    Most people don’t know how much that fight really costs America. The 2008 FBI Uniform Crime Report stated that 44 percent of all funding for the war on drugs is devoted to possession of marijuana and 6 percent is devoted to cannabis cultivation and sale. The total cost of the war on drugs for 2008 was $13.7 billion, according to the Office of National Drug Control Policy. The current request for funding the war on drugs for this fiscal year has increased by 3.4 percent, or $459 million.

    So about half of all funding for the war on drugs, or about $6.85 billion, increases every year and is devoted to stopping marijuana possession, cultivation and sale.

    In contrast the Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman has led a group of 500 economists from Cornell, Stanford, and Yale in a combined effort of calculation. They have estimated that legalization of marijuana would generate about $6.2 billion a year in revenue even in the current economic recession.

    Marijuana legalization is only favored by drugged-out hippies and nonfunctioning members of society.

    Support of legalization of marijuana is no longer favored by a small minority. A new Gallup poll shows that approval of the legalization of marijuana is at an all-time high, with 44 percent of America in favor of legalization. In the last 10 years, approval has steadily climbed by more than 13 points.

    The poll also detailed that people who would self-describe themselves as liberal favored legalization by 78 percent. The government has made marijuana illegal for a reason; it was a thought out and well-researched decision.

    This may not be as true as once, thought.

    Richard Nixon started the war on drugs.

    He commissioned a report on the dangers of cannabis to give scientific data in support of making marijuana illegal.

    This report was called the “The National Commission on Marihuana and Drug Abuse.” The commission, which was published March 22, 1972, concluded, “Neither the marihuana user nor the drug itself can be said to constitute a danger to public safety.” The commission’s official recommendation was that the possession of marijuana for personal use should no longer be considered an offense and that distribution in small amounts should no longer be considered illegal.

    Even though Nixon had commissioned the report, the president and Congress completely ignored the report.

    Later, voice recordings came out of Nixon talking with former Gov. Raymond Shafer of Pennsylvania, who chaired the 1972 marijuana study. The recordings indicate that the president tried to “convince” the governor to reject the commission’s findings, saying, “You’re enough of a pro to know that for you to come out with something that would run counter to what Congress feels … and what we’re planning to do would make your commission just look bad as hell.” Nixon in other conversations had linked cannabis to the downfall of society.

    The total cost of cannabis, staying classified as illegal, is increasing annually. So why have we decided to spend so much time and money on a plant? The more you start to research the prohibition of pot the less things make sense, that is, until you look at other things that have faced prohibition in America. Alcohol was drunk in the form of hard apple cider in early colonial times because the fermentation made it safer to drink than potentially dangerous well water.

    Cider was consumed not just in the afternoon but also with breakfast.

    In early America, there wasn’t much that was more American than a pint of hard cider.

    But through the process of prohibition of alcohol we see why marijuana is illegal. Because someone decided it should be, and a few politicians have made careers of attacking this “threat.” Like Nixon and those after him, when evidence surfaced that cannabis use has no real negative effects they spent money to fight it. We are now using an extensive amount of our tax dollars on a war to fight a new “devil’s fruit,” in a war that doesn’t make much more sense than one against apples.

    I’m all for your message. I think marijuana is an amazing resource that hasn’t even begun to be tapped by doctors today. However, your grammar in making this poster has some glaring mistakes that, if viewed by a conservative anti-pot person, may make them feel as though the author is some dumb kid who shouldn’t be listened to.

    Step 2: Shouldn’t say “the marijuana”, should say just “marijuana”
    Step 4: What does “clocking” mean in this context? I think you meant something else.
    Step 6: Marijuana has not been “proven” to do anything. “(Some) studies have shown” would be a better wording, if you want to be scientifically correct.
    Step 7: Your color diagram seems to be representative of 40%, not 4%. If four of ten items are black, then 40% of them are black, not 4% of them.

    I have been smoking for about 3 years now and i have noticed the government only looks and mentions the flaws about marijuana and not the good things. The least thing they could do is just decriminalize it and just let everybody be happy and stoned. If they legalized it and actually commercialized it and sold it, it would help the economy so much, instead the spend billions a year keeping it illegal.. shame on the government

    Marijuana Is so bad for you. All of these are lies. Like the government put these rules in place to protect us. They tell us Marijuana is bad, so I believe them. You guys are just stupid stoners. Why would you want to touch that stuff. It smells so bad. Good luck not dying in the next 5 years. Weed doesnt do all of those things on the chart if you are already dead.

    I agree with Brittany. I love cannabis and think we have only scratched the surface of how it can be used medically. But it does come across like it’s written by a pot-head. I’m not trying to be a hater but bad grammar takes away from the awesome information and reinforces the “stoner” stereotype.

    Anyway I still like it. Can you please tell me what “clocks” means.

    I didn’t smoke marijuana until I was 50 years old. It has been a miracle for helping me deal with Multiple Sclerosis. It has helped the most of anything I’ve tried in the 14 years I’ve had it. It also opened my eyes that it is not the “horrible drug” I had been brainwashed that it was all these years. Please people…just legalize it already. If you don’t want to use it then don’t but allow others who are helped by it to have it legally.

    I’m from Holland, and the way we deal with weed just proves how much better legalization is.
    Compared to the US, we have WAAAY less hard drugs abuse and drugs-related crimes. And next to that, even less people that openly smoke weed. Even compared to the rest of Europe, the Netherlands have actually less people that actually do smoke weed/hasj.
    All these comparisons are based on a couple of years old research and are ofcourse relative (percentages of specific age groups). I did an essay on this phenomenon a couple of years ago for college 😉

    The basic theory behind this is that illegal stuff is more interesting for a certain group of people – quite a big group, actually – and by legalizing it, you can actually control it and keep it seperated from Hard drugs etc. And next to that it becomes easier to inform people about the usage of cannabis, and therefore preventing it even more.

    I’ve been smoking for 7,5 years now, I’m 24, and I actually finished high school because of weed. I already flunked the year before, and now I was gonna do it again. Then I started weed and my whole attitude changed, I was finally interested and relaxed enough to stay focussed and actually pay attention.
    I must say, I’ve been diagnosed with both ADD and high functioning autism. So, yeah, it might not be great for everyone, but it definitely improves my wellbeing.

Being a highschool student i can see the benifits of having it and dont get me wrong i love it, but it can cause some sriosu problems leading to other drugs. And for anyone who says that the accual smoking of weed is bad, it takes like 40,000 blunts to overdose and thats if you smoke tham in like 10 minutes.

    I agree that Cannabis is a plant given by god. Like some of the comments in this forum, before I started to smoke Cannabis i was an Angry teenager, mad at my parents, mad at society. Now, i’m a healthy fitted adult who just finished his second year in Medical School and is in a healthy relationship. I live in Mexico, daily, dozens of people die murdered due to the Drug Cartel wars. It must be legalized, not just because of the medical and philosophical pros but to erradicate all the Cannabis Mafia around the world, it is simply not good.

    I was diagnosed with Celiacs disease last year, which is a gluten intolerance that can have side affects that are similar to that of IBS and let me tell you, it does NOT cure or treat the disease itself. What it does is help ease some of the pain that goes along with hours of piping hot lava shooting from your rectum, which is just more torture than anyone should have to go through. I have been enjoying some of the more positive affects of the drug as of recently now that it has a purpose in my life outside of just catching a high that helps me tune out my significant other (LOL).

    It is a great medication as well as an excellent recreational substitute to its more evil cousin alcohol which only has a negative stigma carried with it because of the negative side affects.

    Case and point is, if it appeals to you for medication or for recreation then it is up to you as an individual to use it responsibly. If on the other hand it is not your cup of tea then get some hard info on it before you start judging those who do.

    One very interesting fact not mentioned here is how cannabis is a powerful anti-depressant. After my fiancée took her life I became chronically depressed and pharmaceuticals had more detriment than positive effect. A friend who lives in a state where cannabis is decriminalized suggested it to me. I started using edibles and these gave me the opportunity to deal with my problems without the overwhelming depression and stress of her family blaming me. I moved on and dealt with my issues. Do I use this highly beneficial drug now? No. It served it’s purpose. I am a medical professional and I have are few colleagues that believe cannabis causes more harm than good. Hydrocodone (The key drug in Vicodin) which is the most commonly prescribed pain killer in the US besides having serious(death in some cases) cross reactions with dozens of other medications has many serious and common side effects ranging from severe pain to respiratory distress. Cannabis has no known severe drug interactions. Why would anyone listen to a government that for over a century has refused to listen to the advice of the very physicians we entrust our well being to on a daily basis?

    Cannabis free but many should not be!

    Being a pot smoker myself, I smoke at the onset of a migraine and it’s usually relieved faster than any medicine I take. Including the prescribed migraine medicine I have. My boyfriend also has been smoking weed to relieve the pain associated with gastritis. There are so many benefits to marijuana, if anything, alcohol should be illegal. What’s the worst that happens when someone gets high? They over eat and giggle a lot? BIG DEAL.

    Mahack Isbig; maybe you should get stoned, seems like you’re an uptight loser. Until you’ve experienced the benefits of marijuana your opinion does not matter. Cool you listen to the outrageous claims of the government. Do you believe everything someone else tells you? pathetic.

    I am writing this not to sway any opinions but to relay my personal experiences with Cannabis. I have smoked Cannabis for 41 years.I did not start smoking it for its medicinal properties, but to get a Buzz.I have always had a job before and since I have been smoking and in fact 4 years ago was able to retire from a job I had for 30+ years. I don’t think my partaking affected my ability to do my job.Cannabis has never made me crave nor want to do any “Hard Drugs”. I have raised 2 young men who both received academic scholarships. I don’t think my smoking affected my ability to Pro-Create or to raise exceptional children. (By the way, my wife smoked also). In my mid 30’s I was put on the Blood-Thinner, Coumadin. This is just D-Con in a pill.While taking this drug drinking alcohol is not allowed.(It can kill you). So I continued to use Cannabis as my way of getting a buzz or taking the edge off and have had no bad affects.Even though I am retired,I continue to work, (and to smoke Cannabis)with my only fear being that the Government will continue to try to brainwash people into believing that it is killing them or it will lead to harder things. Use your own mind to decide if you want to do this or not.

    Cannabis has many positive side effects, and there is no scientific evidence to prove that it is harmful in the long-term.

    At the minimum, it needs to be decriminalised, although I am a firm believer that there are a number of reasons why it would be beneficial to the Government itself to legalise marijuana.

    1) Take the $$ away from the gangs. Over here in New Zealand, a large percentage of the cannabis that is sold comes from gang members. This is a huge source of revenue for them, and by legalising it, you significantly cut their profits.

    2) Stop weed being a ‘gateway drug’. Marijuana is known as a gateway drug, but this is largely due to the people associated with the sale and distribution of it. Most people I know who have started smoking meth or snorting coke have been introduced to it by somebody else (quite often the gang members who are running public weed houses). By legalising cannabis, and selling it in stores, we can help ensure that, when someone goes to buy a gram of pot, they aren’t surrounded by people trying to give them other substances.

    3) Quality control. We can ensure that the weed our children, friends, parents and collegues are smoking isn’t laced with anything harmful. I’ve heard stories about weed laced with meth, speed, flyspray, ketamine, and many other substances.

    4) Finally, and this is the big one, REVENUE!
    Cannabis makes money, especially if the Government were to legalise it, and mass produce it. They could sell it at a significantly lower price than it is currently sold for on the black market (especially here in NZ – 1 gram = $20.00 on the street), while still taxing the crap out of it.

    It’s sad that because of a ridiculous fear-mongering tactic from the 70’s, educated people 40 years later still believe in reefer madness.

    Not all cannabis is the same, there are hundreds probably even thousands of different strains of it that do different things. Of course smoking some “ditch weed” is going to make you feel paranoid and give you a headache but smoke some “hawaia durbin” or some “alaskan thunderfuck” and you will definitely be calm, reserved and too stoned to even worry about your OCD’s and anxiety.

Maybe even read it before you introduce it into this discussion? I grow so tired of hearing “marijuana bad, marijuana kills cause me say so”. I’ve written several research papers on this subject and the best argument the opposition seems to be able to come up with is “it’s bad, mmkay”. I’ve been a habitual (multiple times a day, every day) marijuana smoker for over 15 years now and even cultivated and produced it legally for patients in Montana for one of the states largest suppliers and I can’t seem to find anything wrong with it’s use. I figured after 15 years of being in direct contact with the drug that SOMETHING negative would have shown itself by now, but no, I feel more balanced and fulfilled in my life than I ever have.
    Also, I don’t buy the argument that marijuana leads to more dangerous drugs. And at some point you as an individual will have to accept personal responsibility for your actions instead of just simply pointing the finger at something else and ruining it for others. I’ve read multiple studies that show compelling evidence that alcohol is the gateway drug not marijuana. Google it. If that’s too much for you, here’s a freebie: http://clearinghouse.missouriwestern.edu/manuscripts/481.php

    This is but one example. The most intriguing are the findings reported in Time and Rolling Stone.

    And let’s not forget alcohol’s little sibling’s caffeine and sugar.

    I could go on for pages but I just simply desire an intelligent opposing argument that may actually persuade me into believing that something is amiss about this plant.
    And I’m still waiting even after 15 years…

    “Marijuana Is so bad for you. All of these are lies. Like the government put these rules in place to protect us. They tell us Marijuana is bad, so I believe them. You guys are just stupid stoners. Why would you want to touch that stuff. It smells so bad. Good luck not dying in the next 5 years. Weed doesnt do all of those things on the chart if you are already dead.”

    Your comments are indicative of a church goer. With that said, you are foolish in everything you stand for. A hopeful reality check should be in your future, we as humans are progressing far beyond your expectation for you to continue to regurgitate irrelevant, incorrect information.

    “Like the government put these rules in place to protect us. They tell us Marijuana is bad, so I believe them. You guys are just stupid stoners.”

    It’s a really sad state of affairs when so many people still, with all the Scientific/Spiritual advances, believe that Government is in place for citizen protection. You are very blind to what’s going on in the world and it would be best suggested that you pull your nose out of your bible and wake up, take a look around, if you don’t understand that a naturally occurring plant that is non-toxic when used correctly is worthy of human consumption, then too bad robot, you fail. Don’t be angry by this, it happens, instead, question everything that you know nothing about so you can find truth and not get caught in feebleminded attacks of disorientation.

    Mahack Isbig please show me one recorded death from cannabis. Show us and maybe we will believe it. And even then it wouldn’t be showing much, there are so many facts and studies on this subject. There is not one recorded death from smoking cannabis. “Good luck not dying in the next 5 years” I mean what the fuck. Weed is more likely to prolong your life.
    And for “dontmatter” guys, I imagine you could die from 40,000 blunts in ten minutes, but good luck getting past 3 or 4 of those without passing out, or just not wanting to move. I liked your comment, I’m not trying to hate. There is no way you would die from smoking too much pot. Get over yourselves.
    And back to Mahack Isbig, the government tells you its bad so its bad? What is your problem. You have way too much trust in your government. I think you should probably get your head out of the governments ass and look at the world yourself. Go out and smoke pot for 5 years, and tell us all about how terrible your death was because of it! Bull fucking shit! You would be the one to go jump off a mountain if the government said it will save your life. You are so ignorant!
    I think everything on this page could very well be facts. They have had studies, and the majority of them show positive effect. Things have been made facts with much less evidence.
    Show me a death, and maybe I will show some sympathy. Wake up, grow up, and smoke some pot!

    Pot was made illegal in North America because of the timber industry, which “big wigs” at the time had a lot of money invested into. The fear was of hemp and it’s potential to replace wood because of it’s ease and rate of growth, as well as the benefits of hemp over wood. They needed quick propaganda that would keep people away from cannabis, and chose to demonize pot smoking. So, the politics behind making pot illegal had absolutely nothing to do with the safety of the citizens, and everything to do with the monopoly of building supplies.

    We don’t need to prove that cannabis has health benefits in order for it to be reasonably legalized, we don’t even have to prove that it is completely harmless since alcohol and cigarettes are both legal and both have adverse health affects. It is being held down simply because of the propaganda that it is a “gate way drug” to those drugs that actually are severely dangerous. Until the government acknowledges that (previously) they used fear tactics in order to gain profit, pot will never be legalized. What do you suppose the chances are that the American government will ever admit they were wrong?

    I’m sick of the way we fight for the legalization of cannabis. Our methods are not getting us anywhere. Their is obviously an overwhelming amount of evidence that pot deserves, and that society will benefit from it’s legalization. However that isn’t the problem. We need to call the government on its bluff. We need to use their history against them and get them to admit to the reasons that pot was first made illegal. The only way we will get anywhere is by confronting the real problem, which is the arrogance and over controlling nature of the west.

    I suffer from severe migraines and marijuana treats the pain considerably. I also suffered from minor tourettes syndrome, suffered as in past tense because daily marijuana usage has completely eradicated the symptoms. To refer to someone who smokes weed as a criminal is truly one of the most ridiculous fabrications of modern-day society.

    I agree with you that only money will sway the decision on this issue, however, there is NO money to be made by big corporations in medical marijuana. The reason is that marijuana is medically effective in its natural form; there is no need to chemically alter or tweak THC to make it beneficial, and natural plants cannot be legally patented so pharmaceutical companies can make no money off of marijuana. There IS a lot of money to be made in the hemp industry, but since the industry doesn’t exist in this country yet it doesn’t have the money to persuade politicians away from the side of the pharmaceutical, plastics, oil, alcohol, tobacco, timber, and textiles companies, the DEA, private prisons, lawyers, etc. who all make an enormous amount of money of marijuana staying illegal.

    @Ugh…. You are very dumb. I don’t know anyone that went on to hard drugs because they smoked pot… Where is your evidence? What are your credentials? If anything marijuana can help people ween themselves off of harder drugs. Know your facts before you make an ass of yourself. Do you think that if you wipe weed of the face of the Earth, people will stop doing coke and heroine and all that? I think without pot more people would do the other,harder drugs. You are delusional… Just so that we’re clear.

    @Weedgenius. You have a good point. But The same people who do those hard drugs would do them regardless of whether or not they ever smoked pot. They aren’t victims of a gateway drug. They are simply…. Morons. If you see someone strung out on heroine and you decide to try it. You are dumb. Simple as that. Some people just don’t learn anyway but the hard way. You don’t blame weed because it’s all he had access to as a dumb teenager. You blame the person who did the hardcore addictive drug, knowing the risks. There is no risk of addiction with marijuana. And if you don’t smoke it then just stay out of the debate. I smoke it…. Haven’t had any at all today and it is almost midnight. I’m not going into withdrawals… Its not really a big deal. I enjoy it. But I won’t get strung out if I don’t have any. I won’t steal or sell all my shit to get it. It is pretty harmless. Another thing nobody mentioned…. You can’t overdose on weed…. It has never happened in the history of the world. All the right wing bible thumpin’ anti-marijuana big mouths are just hating on something they know nothing of… Like usual. If it isn’t hurting you than mind your own damn business…. Don’t your parents teach you people manners and respect for others? Calling someone a criminal for something so harmless should be the crime. stop HATING what you know nothing of.

    I think we can say that pot is currently a gateway drug, but that probably has a lot to do with the fact you get it from the same guys who sell these other potentially more harmful drugs.

    I have suffered from anorexia for years and marijuana usage has benefited me beyond words.
    Aera has got it spot on, it was illegalised because of hemps amazing potential over timber industries, marijuana has been completely demonized. Nobody has ever died from it, you cant even become physically dependant on it, only psychologically but that varies with each individuals state of mental health.
    Also, it is not a gate-way drug, i know many people who use marijuana aswell and they have never used any other kinda of drugs, ever.
    Alas, it will take a completely new way of convincing the government for legilisation of marijuana, and unfortunately until we come up with one then marijuana probably won’t be legalised, except in medicinal uses.

    to aera:

    the claim that marijuana is a gateway drug is NOT a “propaganda” created by the government. The government may use the claim as a major excuse as to why it should not be legalized, but it is MOST definitely a gateway drug. Just so that we’re clear.”

    Are you fucking retarded? It was completely created as propaganda by the government. And there is no such thing as a “gateway” anything. Say I drink beer, it could be said I started with milk, we going to outlaw milk? cause obviously its a “gateway” like you claim. There is nothing in cannabis that causes people to want to other shit like heroin or coke. People move on to try other shit either because 1) they are basers that were fucked in life from the beginning. or 2) They smoke weed and realize they have been lied to all this time by the government so they assume they lied about other shit. This is why when it comes to medical subjects I do not listen to what the government tries to feed us, but the cold hard facts from legit scientists and other researchers.

    I think weed is truly helpful, my grandmother is a meth addict and the recovery rate is 3% now she only smokes weed, so thanks to weed, SHE IS NOT DEAD. And she is actually healthy.
    And i am add, and it does help to an extent, i still have trouble focusing when im high, but overall i feel more normal than hyped up, even when sober.
    So thank you weed 🙂

    I think all this debate about whether or not it’s a gateway drug and the medical benefits vs harm is pointless. The issue is that a government has no right to tell it citizens what they can’t do in the privacy of their own home.
    The current prohibition on marijuana is no different to the prohibition on alcohol in the 20s.
    I just don’t understand what’s illegal about taking a small quantity of a naturally occuring plant, burning it, and breathing the fumes.
    I thought the law was meant to protect a citizen’s right to freedom, not to impede it.

    Time out. There’s no such thing as gateway drugs. People do drugs, and if they like them, they sometimes try different drugs and so on. It just happens to be that most people try weed first. I’ve smoked weed for years now and never went any further than psilocybin mushrooms. I love them both, but doesn’t mean I’m going to try crack anytime soon.

    My brother used to smoke weed, because he got really bad migraines. Unforetunatley, the psycho effects that marijuana provide in later life (which has been proven to occur), happened much earlier in his life. Now, he is exetremely paranoid, and is constantly on edge, which has led to depression and the taking of prescribed medication. So, to me, weed is not a substance to be used to “cure” people of their ailments, but a drug that effects the workings of the human brain in later life.

    Its good that its illegal.

    I live in Canada and blaze every day, and I blaim the US federal government for my country’s not legalizing it. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the US regulates weed on a per state basis and not federally right? That being the case, even if the Canadian electorate were to put a liberal or new democratic party government into power and the good stuff became legal on a Canadian federal level, I’m thinking the states would shut its border until it could find a way to correct the imbalance. In cities like Boston or NYC, a quarter ounce of dope goes for more than $100 while typically better stuff north of the “38th parallel” is expensive at $60.

    Marijuana is illegal for two reasons, racism and greed. William Randolph Hearst hated the Mexicans because they ended up with some of his forest land during the war and he did not want the competition from hemp lowering the value of his remaining forests. He also claimed the marijuana smoking thing is what made the Mexicans so crazy. The DuPont company had just patented plastic, which they were using for rope and they, too, did not want the competition from hemp. The new drug Czar, Harry Anslinger, was trying to make a name for himself and fought with the other two to get legislation where it is today. So the three entities worked together and worked to make it illegal. The only congressional hearing held lasted twenty minutes, the only medical person to testify was on the pro-marijuana side and he was told to shut up and leave, and the rest is history. Hearst’s newspapers had printed articles falsely claimed the horrors of marijuana, which were used at the hearing to back up what they were testifying about. The whole ‘Reefer Madness’ thing was a propaganda ploy. It was all about greed and racism. Making it illegal would be no worse than legalizing alcohol, a much more dangerous, addicting drug. The pharmaceutical companies are fighting legalization now because they cannot figure out how to dose it and they know they will not be able to control personal production. More people than not are realizing just how stupid it is that marijuana remain an illegal substance, for those that don’t, you have my sympathies for being so backwards.
