Marijuana has been utilized for millennia by humans for medicinal, spiritual, and textile purposes. The end of this ridiculous Christian-based ban on this utilitarian herb is right around the corner. Did no one learn anything from the lift of the Alcohol Prohibition???

if the government can sell cigarettes and alcohol they can sell marijuana instead of charging them with a crime. clear the court dockets, jails and prisons for sexual predators and rapists.

Marijuana is far more effective than benzodiazipines and antidepressants in treating anxiety and depression. It is Big-Pharma that is ripping off Americans with the Feds' blessing. When weed becomes legal, Big-Pharma needs to keep their hands out of it.

Yes it can cause cancer but also help when u do get cancer. Pot is very bad on the lungs, worst then cigarettes especially the hydro way it is grown. Very hard on the lungs..But I say sure let the doctor operate on me while he is stoned. Let the police officer or fireman do a good job when they are stoned. Oh yea kids they will have so much fun and the roads will be so safe. I say all U pot heads need to get real this stuff is not legal for a very good reason.

@stone free: Alcohol is legal; does that mean doctors and police officers can use it while they work? Get your head out of your rear and come up with a better argument.

YOU THINK AFTER SEVEN DAYS THE LORD LOOKED DOWN AT WHAT HE HAD CREATED HERE AND SAID OH NO, I FORGOT MY POT. IF I LEAVE ALL THAT JUST LAYING AROUND IT MAY GIVE MANKIND THE IMPRESSION THAT I WANTED THEM TO USE IT..

Does this really need explaining? It's a mind-altering drug. How about living responsibly, as a member of a community instead of simply for one's own pleasure?

Marijuana is the least harmless of any thing out there in the world, and which is safer then cigarettes and alcohol. marijuana is a good source for medical reasons, and to humble the world from the violence we go thru

I completely disagree! Alchohol destroys families and kills people and it is legal with certain circumstances. Cigarettes have taken the lives of more people than alchohol. If you smoke ANYTHING you are putting carcinegens in your body and carcinegens can cause cancer. "hydro" is short for hydroponics which means it was grown without the use of soil, or with just nutrient rich water. Yesterday I ate tomatoes that were hydoponically grown. If pot were to be legalized it would also be taxed and regulated just like alchohol or cigarettes, meaning you would have to be a certain age, used in a certain place and so forth like they do in other places such as Holand, Canada and many other countries. When was the last time you heard of someone dying from smoking pot? When was the last time you heard of someone getting stoned and beating their wife? When I lived in Hawaii practically everone except me smoked pot. Im talking about Buisness CEO's, police, doctors, hippies, boat captains, EVERYONE, and the crime rate on the island was extremely low. The only time you heard about a crime was when the bars closed and someone decided to drink and drive or a stupid redneck tourist decided to drink too much and do something stupid. Pot should be legalized taxed and regulated, so that our tax money can go towards more important things such as the drug war on cocain, heroin, and crystal meth.
