It's a plant not a drug and shouldn't be treated like one. Too many people are going to jail and are labeled as a criminal all because of a plant. Alchohol, which is legal, has killed more people than all the illegal drugs combined. I am not for any drug that is made by man. God put the plants and herbs here for us to use and Marijuana is both of those things.

You are so right, They can't get tax money out of it,, SO it will never become legal hellyou would be growing it yourself.

God knows that our economy is in pitiful shape (to say the least) and could use the extra money that the marijauna industry could bring. I would rather be around somebody who is smoked up than a drunk any day!

You are right. It's all about the money and government figuring out a way to control. What will happen is this: marijuana will be legal. you can buy it, take your seeds and plant them to grow your own. That means the government can't say that it is illegal to possess something that is legal. If you grow your own, you don't have to buy it anymore so therefore, they can't tax you. That is where the buck stops and so does legal possession of marijuana.

All the stories you've heard about marijuana destroying brain cells was more myth than truth. THC acts on receptors in the brain that control pleasure, memory, thought, concentration, sensory and time. That means it controls the cells, not kills them. Meth or marijuana? Ever heard of anyone smoking a joint and robbing someone? Nawww..doesn't happen. Potheads are far too calm and laid back to do harm to anyone. And, if it does destroy their brain cells...isn't it their own body and their own choice? Will the government eventually control what we do to our body? They're surely trying. Soon we will be told we can no longer smoke tobacco because it isn't healthy for us. I think they should just take the money they use for marijuana eradication and use it to wipe out meth. It costs money to put those choppers up in the air to fly and find it. Marijuana is a natural herb. Meth is made up of garbage...drain cleaner,lye, battery acid, paint thinner, fertilizer...anything and everything except the kitchen sink...and if they could find a way of melting the sink down and adding it in to give it volume, they would. Priority. Choose what is the most important and go with it.

There is no scientific proof that marijuana does anything to the body. Get a clue. If u can find the proof, other than getting locked up, u bring it.
