Uhh... Yeah!
& It's called Cannabis.
Marijuana is technically a racial term.
It was dubbed as such to associate it with Mexican Immagriants during the time they wanted them out of Texas.(1920-1930s)

please when you are a chronic pain patient such as me taking pills all the time isnt fun. I rather smoke then swollow 12 pain pills 7 neuropathy pills and 8 muscle relaxers for my chronic RSD and potential parkinson. I haven't bought any drugs illegally but came to a point were I so bad want to for pain. I am sick and tired of pills. I went to Califorina to a pain clinic for other options. I tried the medicinal marijuana. It helped reduce my pain quicker and longer than a normal pill did. What the best part was i stopped shaking from my nerve disorder. I wish someone in dallas tx would legalize it and find me!swtcolgrl at yahoo if yall want to discuss anything else will be willing to talk to others with the same issues

You are the poster child for the legalization of cannabis.
You'r not some dumb kid that thinks it makes movies, music, and food better.
You have a real disability, for which you need medical grade cannabis.(i.e. Hydroponic)
Somewhere around 18%+ would work great for you.
Medication in pill form always has the potential for detrimental effects of the kidneys and liver.
Cannabis has absolutly no negative side effecs.
It pains me, and I am truly sorry that you are forced to live in dicomfort and pain due to some racist and flawed laws that are old as fuk.
I recomend you begin self medication immediatly.
Get your self a vaporizer. Its the best and most advanced method for using cannabis.
You deserve a better quality of life.
It's not you'r fault you have this disability...
You should have what you need to live a decent and peacefull life.
Yes Please

I wish we would legalize it.
We are the people, this is a democracy, we can vote it in with enough numbers.
But, even if legalized, like the other 14(?) states, a failed drug test at work will cost a person their job. More than just legalization needs to be looked at. Better tests need to be created to show real-time impairment, so that legal cannabis users don't have to worry about losing their jobs.
As long as cannabis is illegal by federal standards, and until there are laws in place that stipulate the specifics on legality of testing and terminating for employment, a user will be at risk.
I am a healthcare employee with a bulging disc in my lower back. I perform CPR, move patients around, bend, lift...lots of things that aggravate my back. Over the counter meds do not help with the pain. Alcohol helps, Vicodin helps. But I don't want to be an alcoholic or become addicted to pain pills. I don't want to kill my liver while treating constant back pain. I would be happy to resort to legalized cannabis, but only if there were no risk of losing my job, my livelihood. I don't understand how so many people can use cannabis at the risk of losing their job.

Need to relax, lower your stress level? Get out and exercise with friends/family. It's healthly and legal. How can you sit around and smoke a joint with your kids? It's a drug and drugs are not the answer. Pain pills legal or not are just as bad if not worse. Get out and enjoy life... We are only here for a short period, don't spend it high on pot, drinking or pill popping!

This is about personal freedom. I smoked pot with my mother and still do. There aren't enough of you old republicans too keep it from becoming legal.
Maybe next yea when our goverment shuts down again, we can keep it open with taxation on pot!

Why not I ask you? Lol
Drugs are so expensive and profitable mainly because they are illegal.
Make all drugs legal and cut the head off the cartel and well most organized crime.
...But how else would they make their money?...
Maybe something truly morally wrong?
This is interesting to me. A strange balance Maybe. Lol Somebody smarter than me knows what theyre doing I hope.

I live in SA now but recently moved from Phoenix where I had my med card and grew my own medicine.
Guess I'm a criminal now lol

Legalize it, tax it just like alcohol and cigarettes. You will see the decrease in the courts cases and the population of the jails. It is already legal for recreational use in Oregon and Colorado. It's legal of medical use in California and a couple of other states that I can't think of right now. It helps the pain and nausea associate with cancer and other diseases. Texas will make money hand over fist in revenue from it if they legalize it.
