Weed "cures" NOTHING. So tell me Einstein, what does weed "cure"? And I mean besides a stressed out day.

There is no cure for a lot of conditions but there are things to help. Marijuana is not a cure for anything but chemotherapy doesn't cure cancer yet it saves lives EVERYDAY

OK. I'm not claiming anything is a "cure". Someone on this topic is claiming that it a "cure ". I'm just pointing out that its NOT. If a cancer patient wants to smoke weed , I don't care. But it's not going to cure them.

There's not really any cures just remedies. Also marijuana is one of the LEAST DANGEROUS "drugs " out thereand it's IMPOSSIBLE to overdose on period!

No I mean anyone not u directly I've never heard a actual valid reason. Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of inmates that would no longer need to be housed in our way overcrowded prison system. It's more ignorant not to make it legal

It was made illegal because of the paper, alcohol, and tobacco industries all banding together to make hemp (which contains enough THC to give you a headache- not enough to actually do anything) and marijuana illegal. Hemp was killing the paper/lumber companies because it coul be made into paper, rope, and other products way more efficiently than trees. The alcohol and tobacco industries didn't want more competition. So, they lobbied and said that marijuana made you crazy. Watch the movie "Reefer Madness".

I didn't ask why. I know why. Alcohol and tobacco kill more people in one hour than marijuana does in eternity. True facts

Truth. Marijuana has never killed anyone by itself, unlike alcohol and/or tobacco. I believe I read that you'd have to smoke 1500 pounds of it in one hour for it to kill you, which is very, very impossible.

I'm all for legalizing it. I do still have concerns over how DUI's would work, though. Other than that... I can't think of a reason as to why it is illegal, especially when cigarettes and liquor are legal.
