We keep hearing negative information about synthectic marijuana, but we never hear anything on the true grown marijuana...why? because its natural..not even as bad as alcohol!! Take the syntectic away and legalize the true thing!!!

Ingestion of bath salts is yet another side effect of prohibition. Perhaps they can also ban dihydrogen monoxide, which has killed millions of people.

A free country cannot coexist with a framework of selective prohibition. You either own your body or you do not.

this is the catalyst for the legalization of marijuana my friend. they can keep the cocaine and bath salts, just free up the best way for America to pay off debt to our current owner, China. Colorado paid off their debt and had a surplus of over three million dollars for their state with the passing of the medicinal marijuana laws. How can any state, much less the government overlook this fact? the billions wasted on fighting a natural product could be gained back within two to five years if the feds would just get with Bill Clinton, buirn one up, put a hot intern under the podium and take turns speaking to each other from such podium. Joking aside, alcohol has caused a hundred percen more deaths than marijuana usage. Employers are more prone to hire people who occasionally smoke marijuana than they would a social drinker. A friend of mine has some issues that anti depressants don't seem to control. Upon advising her doctor she smokes marijuana to control her moods with great success which many can attest to her in her favor, his response was simply to continue to do so. he sin't the only doctor giving this advice to patients either. The day will come sooner than later when the war on a plant less dangerous than alcohol and cigarettes will be made available without consequence.

There is a kid (young guy) using this stuff like it's going out of style. He's 20-22 about that. He has a kid on the way with his girlfriend that has been trying to help him the best she could but he always runs off and gets more. He gets high for days at a time, he's already skinny but now he's sickly skinny. And honestly he's the type that won't stop until he's dead. That is such shame!

I also have a friend who was on heavy pain killers and got addicted. his doctor also recommend marijuana. it worked wonders for him and his pain level is stable. I agree with you totally.

Noone here is saying you should drive after smoking marijuana. It is a drug just like alcohol, but My point was that I have never seen anyone violent or abusive under the influence of straight marijuana. It is a healing drug. What type of healing does alcohol provide to people?? A sloppy drunk mess!!!

before you assume he wrecked the car just because he was high on marijuana, check every other aspect of his driving record, the road conditions, AGE of said person, and all situations surrounding the event when it took place. Then compare it to a person driving under the influence of alcohol. A person driving drunk can wreck their car even if they have a perfect driving record, they will cause accidents in any weather, they have less control of their body and it's functions, and so on and so on. You can not simply blame this one incident on the person being high on marijuana. And you pointed out one incident, i can rattle off millions of alcohol related accidents compared to your one accident caused by marijuana.

Well, if you speak all 3 languages as well as you write English; I'm satisfied with my just speaking one language...correctly. I am very curious as to the name of the top university from which you graduated. That's pretty funny.

A f$%kin' men bro!!! If anybody has any stupid arguement against decriminalization of all drugs I refer them to what Portugal is doing and the success they have been enjoying. The whole world thinks that our drug policy and laws are rediculous, behind the times and just plain ludicrous. Take your head out of your butts and face reality people. PROHIBITION DOES NOT WORK!!! No arguement you raise can intelligently support it!!

Nobody said this never happened, but look at the statistics. Don't forget about the major contributors to the war on drugs, alcohol tobacco an pharmaceutical companies. The many uses and lack of physical addiction make it a no brainer. People should have a choice. Oh yeah, they do, they can grab a beer, pack of smokes and go to the doc for some sleep aid after drinking coffee all day. No stiff consequences for te millions that do that every day. Get caught with pot= lose your job, probation, jail, start over, labeled as criminal, etc
