I think the major reason is. Is it does have medical benefits, which will be abused like every other medicine, even over the counter stuff. The benefits are instead of the cartels controlling it and sending billions across the border. thousands of small business's will thrive selling the equiptment and materials needed, which will provide jobs and tax revenue. I do think it needs to be regulated as much or more than alcohol so that the state can collect there tax's and patients receive medicine thats of a high standard not just everyone trying to do it in there closet and selling garbage to their patients.

I also agree with everyone who says its less dangerous and damaging then alcohol all the people against probally don't realize the contractor, bag boy, politician, etc, etc, that they like so much are high on marijuana when they are talking to them???? It does not kill brain cells it stores in fat which is in the brain and will block some of the paths but when you quit it leaves the body. other then the lungs ( which you'd have to smoke ALOT) there is no real side effects

There is no reason for an herb to be illegal. It is the least damaging of any of the alternatives. It has many benefits.The only reason its illegal is because of the money. The greed of the folks in charge want their undeserved cut as usual. Just take a good hard look at what they call legal substances, read the side effects. But they make the almighty dollar. Plus it would legalize hemp. A very lucrative resource.

On a serious note, everyone is making a huge stink about synthetic marijuana lately. Well what would be a reasonable solution to that problem? I'm sure if you could walk down to Admiral and buy a pack of joints for 10-15 bucks, nobody would touch that synthetic swill. SYNTHETIC marijuana is akin to SYNTHETIC pharmaceuticals, a designer drug with a laundry list of undesirable side effects. Regulate it! Tax money for the government, everyone is happy... and hungry. Sure, it's a great painkiller, but c'mon. Recreationally it's not bad either. I've never ever, ever seen someone take a toke and start swinging. Just sayin'. Anyone who opposes legalization is likely tragically misinformed, a die-hard bible bumper, or extremely sheltered.

Legalize it. If we believe in capitalism, then we would do it.
