Because folks don't like change.

Alcohol is illegal in George county. We still live like the prohibition days. Go to jail for a 6 pack. You think they will legalize Mary Jane anytime soon? Lol I seriously doubt it.

If you think it is proven harmful, then ms is growing things and sending it to states to hurt them? Where is the outrage? Why not try to stop it? And please..... educate me on how its harmful. Its been said my entire life and the first state legalized it in the 90s.... now over 10 states legalize it now..... where are mass deaths?

Any type of smoking hurts the body, but I think you get more mental damage than physical. Many that I have seen are just lacking enthusiasm - if you alter your brain process with alcohol, drugs, whatever, you have caused a tiny bit of brain damage. It all adds up over time. This is true for prescription meds too.

Then why aren't sugary products, cigarettes, coffee/caffeinated products and alcohol illegal? They all cause severe health defects.

I expect that cigarettes would never be made legal if it was happening today. People did not know they were a health factor many years ago. If I had my way alcohol would not be legal, but having said all of this I read once where someone drank so much water until they died. I don't think just because we have made past mistakes, we should just go on and legalize everything. There is always someone that abuses everything.

Except, marijuana has never caused a death. All smoke is cancer causing, but there are other ways to take mj. Pill, eating and vaporizing.

Many marijuana users—and those of us who drive on the same roads as they do—don’t understand the dangers of mixing marijuana and driving. After alcohol, marijuana ranks as the highest-found drug in crash-involved drivers. According to a study cited by ONDCP, a roadside study of reckless drivers who were not under the influence of alcohol showed that one in three tested positive for marijuana alone. An additional 18% tested positive for marijuana in combination with cocaine.

The effects of marijuana on drivers include:
•Relaxation, disorientation
•Altered time and space perceptions
•Drowsiness, sedation
•Lack of concentration
•Decreased car-handling performance
•Impaired time and distance estimation
•Increased reaction times
•Impaired motor coordination

Marijuana can impair a driver's abilities for at least one or two hours after use, and residual effects can be found up to 24 hours. Marijuana has also been shown to increase the impairing effects of alcohol.

In addition to marijuana, other drugs, including some over-the-counter medications, can impair a driver’s ability to stay alert and focused.

What are those over-the-counter drugs and how fast can we get legislation passed to imprison people who possess them?

I recently saw a court case of a woman who had some vodka and marijuana - she was driving 5 of her family members home from a camping trip - they were all children. She completely lost it, got in the wrong lane and killed everyone in her car and a couple more people. I always like to ask people, "why do you need this", whatever the problem it will not be solved.

Then just go for it - I certainly don't care if you drink booze and smoke pot all day long - just as long as you do not get on welfare, drive and endanger others, or get on public assisted health care for your ailing liver. I am happy with life and don't need chemical assistance - You can be the poster child for pot.

All I see are facts about mixing drugs. If a doctor mixes two depressants (morphine and Xanax), a patient would also have the same negative side effects as mentioned above. People should be smart enough to know NOT to mix drugs and don't drive while you're doing either one of them.

So here are some positive things about marijuana that you may not know.
Please read.

These are just a few articles. As with anything you smoke, they are carcinigens or cancer causing. There are alternative ways to using marijuana. I'm not a "pot head". I just see it for what it really is. A medicine that we should use. It should at least be prescribed to people who are ailing from the diseases that it helps.

You cited "facts" from the ONDCP. But it's no secret that they are a propaganda mill for the federal government and have several occasions used bloated and terribly inaccurate information for their statistics
