Marijuana fools endocrine and brain chemistry. It causes delusional states detrimental not only to the user. Almost all inmates at prisons and jails extol the benefits of marijuana in their lives. Their many children can attest to this.

The government should give it up and legalize it, tax it, and let us open farms of it.

In the prohibition, they repealed it because of the money they were losing via taxes (hint hint)

How about a yearly growers license?
Just think about it for a moment. If the people that support it
Would pay a measly $25 a year, the problem would be solved.
The gov’t would have the extra revenue(they claim they need),
The people that enjoy it would not have to buy it from anyone…especially from Mexico.
The only complainers would be pharmaceutical companies and the plethora of lawyers they employ.
The people that keep it illegal are either corrupt, uneducated, or just plain stupid.
In fact, the reason it is illegal is because it was a threat to the cotton industry(hemp has a wide range of uses).

Screw the licensing, it's not up to the government to have any fukin* control over free men and women when it comes to personal choices, just like it is not obama's job to dictate that we have insurance through government mandates. Think like a free sovereign person. The public schools are brain washing our people .

a lot of the "laws" in place were made by scared, old white people & backed by industry tycoons that had their own selfish reasons to influence laws.

The government should legalize it and tax it like alcohol. They would gain more control over it and help dig us out of the financial mess the country is in.
They could use it to strengthen the Borders!!!
