It is amazing we can throw a family in jail over some 'leaves", but yet we still continue to allow drunk drivers, the freedom to kill and maim innocent families on the road system.

We spend billions each year trying to stop people from "smoking" but yet we allow big business' to profit from tobacco, which is shown to have bad effects on people.

When are we going to grow up and quit being so critical of people that enjoy "smoking" "leaves", Leaf material is not a drug, It is 100% natural. Why not apply the same fines for tomatoes.

These antiquated infeior laws have not accomplished one darn thing in the last 50 years or more. But instead we have wasted billions of dollars trying to wipe out something that is NATURAL !!

I have been smoking pot for the better part of 28 years, I can say with conviction...I would rather my own children smoke pot and mellow out, Instead of getting totally blacked out drunk and make a life changing mistake... 20 years ago I was that blacked out drunk, I almost killed a woman and her 2 children on Christmas eve... thank GOD
she only sufered a broken leg... I served my time
and turned 21 yrs old in prison.. after 3 years being locked up and 1.5 years in rehab...I can seriously say to you...Legalize Marajuana...and TAX the He77 out of it... then come down WAY harder on drunk drivers....
Because the life you end up changing...may not be yours.. you can permanently ruin someone elses life when your drunk...
Sincerely, Pothead

It was the BATF that paid off the law makers to make Marajuana illegal ,it makes you feel better then Nicotine,(which is more addicting then Heroin), grows wild all over the world,(cuts into the tabacco profits,the alcohol profits), and its harder then hell to get a stoned, mellowed out person to go to War for you!!!
Really, you should try it..then tell me you want to go on a rampage and hurt someone.. if you say it, I'd know your a lier. Your smile would be a dead giveaway.

MAKE IT LEGAL ALREADY..and TAX it.

The last time I checked the NORMAL website it listed the state of Alaska as being legal for up to 4oz and 25 plants in your house. Has this changed or was there more to the bust than personal amount at home?
