The government needs to do a better job at convincing the American voters if they want to continue on with this prohibition of marijuana. They claim that the plant is dangerous and deadly, yet they can't provide any proof or evidence to back these claims up. If you want to know the FACTS about marijuana then click on the link below.

"The truth about marijuana the government doesn't want you to know."

Is it good? Is it bad? That all depends on the individual. Anything and Everything can be abused or addictive. But, should the individual have the choice? Yes! Should it be regulated like (legal intoxicants)? Absolutely! Should it be Taxed? Oh Yea! Should farmer's be able to grow a low grade (THC) content crop to help preserve other natural resource's? This debate could go back and forth forever. The Chinese several thousand years ago tried Prohibition and it didn't work. The 200+ year old USA is going fix this? I don't think so.
If one chooses to get high: i.e. MJ, Paint, Gasoline, Rush, Pills, Whatever and etc. They are going to do it or find a way to do it. How many CD clinics are there? The individual has to make the choice, not you, nor the Judicial System can change a persons will.
Personally, I suffer from PTSD (soon to be AMA Reclassified PTSI "Injury")- Insomnia and isolation are my two best friends. Pills don't work when Adrenaline is secreted in such volume it overpowers almost anything. Panic Attacks, Cancer Patients, etc.etc.etc. There a big list of good and there is a big list of bad. But, It is still an adult's individual choice. I choose not to. My choice! Not yours, not .gov, not the law - MY CHOICE!
Script from a movie says it all "As soon as they (pharmaceutical companies, politicians, lobbyist) see that legalization won't bring them Million's, BUT FU***** BILLIONS, prohibition will end"
And, for those that say it leads to other things. Could be, I don't know the answer to that, but recent media reports "HERION is now the CHOICE of our YOUTH" I've never seen that plant grown here.

i have a great deal of pain and smoking Marijuana is the best most effective way of managing my pain. i don't like the huge list of side effects that come with narcotics and the marijuana works way better than any narcotic and allows me to function in every day living.
LEGALIZE!
Well, if you live in Austin, the capital of Texas, start the petition. Start bugging the senators, the representatives. Or elect nothing but liberals. I usually vote conservative, but I see the benefits of weed and need change to legalize it. Conservatives better get up speed and start supporting the legalization of marijuana other they are going to find themselves loosin future elections based on this issue only. I know plenty of people who smoke and would be willing to give up some of their political convictions just to have the freedom to smoke.

Prohibition didn't work in the early 1900's, and it doesn't work now.

How many potheads are out causing stabbings and rapings? You are and idiot for trying to spin this and have pot heads categorized with the coke heads and speed freaks. Its a downer not an upper. I smoke and not one person I knew or met wanted physical violence after smoking a joint. Get your facts straight.

As a recovering alcoholic/drug addict, I am not going to start smoking pot just because it's legal. I do not drink just because it's legal. Legalizing marijuana would help the overcrowded prisons, cut down violence from drug cartels, allow people to use it for medicine, generate taxes and create jobs. So much good for the country

Maybe you need to try some tightass.
I don't approve of alcohol all the time, but I don't judge those who fancy it. Many different types of people smoke. I, myself, am quite successful with my job and personal life. Weed didn't mess my life up. Weed should not be our first priority to discuss. Far more worse things than a fucking plant.
