Do you realize if Cannabis ("marijuana") were legal your kids and others wouldn't be trying this "legal" pot that has who knows what in it. Even someone on news channel six was like atleast when its pot youbknow what your getting... Cannabis has never been the direct cause of death for anyone. No one has ever died from it. If cannabis were legal these kids that lost their lives to these new legal substitutes would still be living. You have to understand that.
China doesn't have a drug problem like our country does. A few decades ago their policy was to execute anybody using or selling drugs and that solved the problem real quick. We could learn a thing or two from them. That's one of the reasons they are a rising power.

Weed, or as "casual, educated" call it, canabis, is against the law here and should stay that way. It may have a few good effects but the bad out weigh them. If they want it so bad, move to the states that sell it for medical reasons. It will still be hard for you to get it in those states. As far as here, it is unlawful regardless of if its only used in your own home. I bet you fail to realize the deaths involved in most of the marajuana smuggling to this country so you can "relax" in the comfort of your own home. Sure, a very small amount is grown here, but the majority is smuggled here with drastic measures taken to try to get it here. But, kids getting killed does not concern you as long as you smoke in your home. But still, thats no reason to make it legal. The bad health effects out weigh the good regardless of what you read on pro marajuana web pages.

And ofcourse an arrogant person like yourself is completely blind to the fact that the only reason there are problems at the border with this drug is because it is illegal. If it were legal grown on the us and distributed that way as a business the cartel would be out of business. No one would risk the violence knowing they could get their product in the us safely and legally. Prohibition is the cause of the harms you state in your ill mannered response not Cannabis. Kids using this "fake marijuana" only use it because they either don't want to risk the consequences of getting caught buying cannabis. Or because they have to pass a drug test. All this because the plant Cannabis is illegal. If it were legal all these negative consequences would be irrelevant, non existing. Im sure any information you know of is based off of an either government funded website or a anti marijuana website. So that makes you a hypocrite. You simply don't want to except your wrong. Neither does our government that abolished and declared a plant evil centuries ago. Now things are changing and new research is being done. Yet no reformed laws. Simply because the government doesn't want to admit they were wrong and ruined millions lives for nothing and because they bring in millions from court costs fines jail fees etc of so called labeled criminals almost always for simple possession. Blinded fool. May God bless you with enlightenment to see this world for what it is. You are completely unaware.

I DON'T. I support the legalization of this plant which would decrease and possibly put an end to the deaths and crime associated with the prohibition of this drug.

Did You Know?
Little Known Facts in the Medical Marijuana Debate
1.Marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 drug by the 1970
Controlled Substances Act, meaning it is considered to have a
"high potential for abuse," "no currently accepted medical
use," and "a lack of accepted safety." Rescheduling marijuana
to the less restrictive Schedule II or III (45 KB) remains a
contentious issue.
2.The University of Mississippi has grown marijuana (including
a placebo with virtually no THC) for US government-approved
research since 1968. Each year the university grows 1.5 acres,
6.5 acres, or none, depending upon demand.
3.The first cannabis-based prescription medicine, Sativex, was
launched in the United Kingdom on June 21, 2010. Sativex is a
mouth spray approved to treat spasticity in patients with
Multiple Sclerosis.
4.Eight of the 10 states that had legalized medical marijuana
by 2006 saw a decrease in teen use of marijuana from 1999 to
2006.
5.The states with the three highest possession limits among
the 16 states with legal medical marijuana are Oregon (24
plants), California (18 plants), and New Mexico (16 plants).
6.Smoked or inhaled marijuana takes only a few minutes to
reach the brain, where a series of cellular reactions occur that
ultimately produce the "high" feeling. When eating or drinking
marijuana, this process can take up to an hour.
7.When swallowing marijuana (in teas, brownies, etc.), the
main active ingredient, Delta-9-THC, is transformed by the
liver into the more psychoactively powerful Delta-11-THC.
8.In 1978 the US government started the Compassionate
Investigational New Drug (IND) program. Although closed for
new patients in 1991, it still supplies 320-360 marijuana
cigarettes monthly to each of the four seriously ill patients
remaining in the program.
9.According to FDA data obtained by our filing of a Freedom
of Information Act (FOIA) request, marijuana was not
reported as a primary cause of death at all between Jan. 1,
1997 to June 30, 2005 (the time for which the data were
available).
10.The US Department of Justice, in an Oct. 19, 2009 memo,
advised federal prosecutors not to target medical marijuana
patients whose actions are in compliance with the law in
states that have legalized medical marijuana.
11.Marijuana contains over 400 different identifiable chemical
constituents, including steroids and Vitamin A.
12.The British Lung Foundation reported in Nov. 2002 that 3-4
marijuana cigarettes a day are as dangerous to the lungs as 20
or more tobacco cigarettes a day.
13.A UCLA study presented on May 24, 2006 found no
association between marijuana and lung cancer, and it
suggested that marijuana may even have "some protective
effect."
14.Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Administrative Law
Judge Mary Ellen Bittner ruled on Feb. 12, 2007 that "there is
currently an inadequate supply of marijuana available for
research purposes."
15.The 1999 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report,
commissioned by the US government, recommended that
under certain narrow conditions marijuana should be
medically available to some patients, even though "numerous
studies suggest that marijuana smoke is an important risk
factor in the development of respiratory disease." Read more
about the report's conclusions.

Our GOVERNMENT still gives out around 300 marijuana cigarettes to the few patients still receiving medical marijuana under the 1978 Compassionate Investigational New Drug program. Refer to fact number 8. New patients were closed to the program in 1991. Cannabis was made illegal based on studies and a law created in 1970. Its time to rethink our logic.

What if the government were to ban all tobacco products, would anyone against marijuana get pissed?
Cause tobacco is probably the most used substance for people getting thier "fix", well besides caffeine, nicotine is a stimulant and very addictive, and anyone that says its worse for you than marijuana is a moron. Think about alcohol too, cause I'm pretty sure its no better for you..

[/QUOTE]Good point. Alcohol can have a few good benefits if used in moderation, by that I mean one or two drinks per week. Marijuana is by far more dangerous than tobbaco.

Other than the fact that getting "high" is for some reason worse than getting drunk, there is no logical reason the outlaw marijuana. Which hemp is thrown in with even though it has little to no thc, which is the stuff that makes marijuana fun. The goverment makes it almost financially impossible to grow hemp, which is a much better source of fibers to make anything from clothes to paper. If marijuana was legalized hemp therefor would be free to grow, making logging unnecessary.... So no need to worry about killing killing trees when you use paper products, you can think of it as killing pot plants if you so wish, use more paper to destroy drugs...

Deaths according to consumption.(Not including motor vehicle accidents.)
Alcohol- 180,000 deaths per year
Tobacco- 350,000-400,000 deaths per year
Marijuana- 0 deaths recorded directly related to the consumption of marijuana.
Its humanly impossible to over dose on cannabis.
After a 12 pack of beer your body starts noticing symptoms of alcohol poisoning.
In a UCLA study there was no relation found between lung cancer & cannabis. In fact it was said cannabis may possibly have some protective effect against cancer cell growth.
Point is this "legal weed" people are selling is a substitute for something that our government continues to avoid. A substitute for marijuana. If these teens had of tried real cannabis rather than this imitation with unknown chemicals in it, would STILL BE ALIVE TODAY.
When will our Government realize the riskiness of doing something their not supposed to will almost ALWAYS entice young people to DO exactly what they were told not too. You want to decrease teen drug use? You must legalize the drug and put an age limit restriction for purchasing the drug. Approach people who are sick and addicted to a drug like meth and heroin, with a more clinical method. Treat this issue as a health problem rather than a legal matter.
Progress will be made with these things in mind. There are thousands of pro marijuana activists around the US that dedicate their time to fight for the reform of our countries drug laws. They aren't giving up.
Happy Smoking (:
Merry Christmas (:

How can any of you say as a fact that pot has never killed anyone? It is not possible for any of you to claim that as a fact. It is foolish to call others misinformed and then make statements that are only opinions as facts. Just sayin.
