ILOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! I love how the Gov't has turned the war on 'drugs' to benefit whatever need it has at that particular time in history!! In the 20-30's it was evil because it made you get down with that jive music and act all crazy(Reefer Madness). In WWII, it was ok (see the video put out by the Gov't, Hemp for Victory) Oh, but wait! They discouraged smoking it bc it made ppl pacifist - the exact opposite of the reason it was made illegal in the !st place. They assumed we couldn't beat Hilter if we were smokin' the reefer - bc we would be too laid back to fight. Pot is legal in Amsterdam and the percentage of teens who smoke pot there is considerably less than in the US. GO figure. I look at it like this. During the prohibition of alcohol, what happened? Well, Alcohol poisoning went up 600%, the original gangsters got their start during this time 'dealing' moonshine, freakin' NASCAR got its start bc of the boys running moonshine (Ok, maybe not a bad thing for everyone, but you see my point...). You would have to smoke 15,000 joints in 20 min or less for weed to become toxic in your body. How many pills can kill you? 20 aspirin? And I can send my kid into the store to buy that!! Look at the top 10 reasons ppl die in the US every year. Hmmm... no pot on the list? Thats bc it doesn't kill anyone EVER, never once in the whole history of the world has there been ONE recorded death by tokin!
Think about drug tests. Hmmm. I can't hit that bowl bc i get drug tested for my job, probation, whatever - Oh! But Sure, I'll do that line of coke, hit that crack pipe, shoot that meth and then snort a couple oxy's in the morning to get over my wild night bc that will ALL be outta my system in 72 hours or less... But not WEED! Weed is good for pain, great for mental illnesses like bi-polar, helps people eat, sleep, chill... but it's a BAD BAD drug according to our Gov't.

What are you referring to? This forum? Or Marijuana? I have 2 teenage sons 7 it's 100X easier for them to get pot than alcohol - Like i said earlier, the rate of pot use w/ Teens in Amsterdam where it's legal is significantly less than in the US where it's not. Think what you want, it's America!! We are all entitled to make our own choices and have our own opinion!

If corn, wheat, barley, and taters are legal to possess and smoke then marijuana should be also.

Agreed! I can't for the life of me figure out what the UPROAR is over a PLANT!! IT grows outta the dirt. Nothing is added, there are no chemical enhancements or changes. It's not like corn,wheat or barley and allowed to ferment. Its not like adding chemicals to coco leaves to make cocaine, or adding chemicals to opium to make herion or pills... ITS A PLANT!!

"If you throw enough mud against the side of the barn, eventually some of it will stick."

Interpretation: If the government tells enough lies mixed with propaganda, some stupid people will believe them.

it does not matter if it is illegal or not. the people that is going to smoke it is going to anyway. it is easier than buying pack of cigs. plus it would boost the economy. but it really don't matter what we say, its who ever is incharge in the state house. it would not matter if ever body in the state voted for it, if the people in charge don't want it in there state, then it want happen. its not we the people, but it is we the people don't matter.
