It is a herb that God put on this earth to use as a healing plant. I can go into my garden and smoke basil or rosemary, but would be thrown in jail and lose everything if I had Marijuana in my garden in Georgia.

The three main opposing forces people would quickly come to realize if they did their research are big tobacco, pharmaceutical, and liquor companies. They spend considerable dollars each year on lobbyists in Washington to oppose this movement.

One additional opposing force are the LOCAL governments. Fines are the substantial part of job security for sheriff, police, and the judicial systems in so many parts of the country.

This country cannot afford to NOT legalize it!

If marijuana was legal then law enforcement would have more time to focus on real issues, like meth! Now that's an issue!

Absolutely. Tax on marijuana would benefit us. I don't beleive it is as destructive as alcohol and banning alcohol didn't work.

Well, well, well...

You druggies in this town MAKE ME SICK! The good news is now you druggies have outed yourself by talking about how much you waant pot to be legal. Just wait to the police find out. By saying you wnt pot to be legal you have just admitted to your own pot using. Going to be hilarious when i read aobut you druggies getting busted.

Wrong. I'm actually not a pot smoker and I don't smoke it because it's illegal. However, I know that enforcing marijuana laws is more dangerous to police and the criminals than it is beneficial to "society."

Hey Concerned Citizen, here is a big pair of pliers to pull that big bug out of your butt. I'm betting you drink a little Jack Daniels while you are surfing the internet looking for porn.

I think you're saying "tax marijuana" and help people with the revenues? I like that idea, too.

Gateway drug? It's wrong? Sounds like you're as brainwashed as the rest. You ought to get an opinion this strong on the other stuff you're doing to screw up your own life and once you're perfect, worry about pot smokers.
do your research

Webster's Dictionary describes a "drug" as "any substance that alters a body function." Do you allow your children to drink Coke, Pepsi, Mountain Dew or any type of coffee drinks? Fact: Caffeine is more "addictive" than marijuana is and has more noticeable "withdrawal symptoms."

If heaven forbid my children ever developed cancer or a disease and I knew marijuana would be beneficial for their healing or relief (vs. the many toxic poisons they call medicine with horrific side affects,) I would not hesitate to take them to one of the 15 states where citizens have spoken and were heard to legalize medical marijuana.

First of all, doesn't too much alcohol make you violent too? As well as acting a different way?
Also, marijuana is from the Earth, as for cigarettes are made in factories, as well as alcohol.
People aren't saying made every drug legal, because that would be insane.
But as for marijuana,I think it should be legalized.
Not because I smoke it, or anything like that.
People smoke it to be relaxed. You can say people could take yoga, or any other form of relaxation technique, but those don't always work for some people.
Also, why is everyone caught up in how people act for a few hours? Just don't go around the people who are smoking.
So, stop freaking out over something people do already. Saying you don't want it legalized isn't going to stop people from doing something they have been doing for years and years.
