No, it makes you spaced out, paranoid, lazy and it is expensive. We do not need more temptations out there.

i would say its cheaper than crack,heroin,meth,and pills. spaced out? then i have to say its alot better than a crackhead or a meth addict running up and begging for everything you have maybe even taking your life. so yes if its a choice i would have to say make the harder drugs the bigger concern you wont see anyone taking your money or your life for a bag of weed.

Legalizing it would make/save money for the government. It also stop making criminals of otherwise law bidding citizens.

The only bad thing about legalizing it would be that it would be majorly taxed. Otherwise, I'm all for it! Let's smoke out!

Just to throw it out there, I know more people that it does not make lazy it actually makes them more ambitious and creative, makes them think more and more clearly!

BECAUSE IT HONESTLY HELPS WITH ANXIETY, AND I BELIEVE IT ALSO HELPS WITH EATING DISORDERS. IF PEOPLE ARE STRESSED OUT, A LOT OF THEM HAVE A HARD TIME EATING, MARIJUANA PROMOTES AN APPETITE. IF IT'S NOT ABUSED IT'S A HELPFUL THING. NOT TO MENTION IT'S RECOMMENDED FOR CANCER PATIENTS, AND ALSO GLAUCOMA. I WOULD SAY, STOP SUPPORTING THINGS LIKE CRACK, AND METH, AND THE BIGGEST ISSUE THESE DAYS ESPECIALLY WITHIN OUR TEENS, HEROIN. THE BUTTONS. PLEASE GET A CONTROL OVER THOSE THINGS AND JUST LEGALIZE MARIJUANA SO THE REST OF THE GOOD CITIZENS WHO AREN'T ADDICTED TO ONE OF THOSE OTHER DRUGS, SO WE CAN COPE WITH THOSE REALLY DISTURBING THINGS THOSE TYPE OF PEOPLE BRING TO US WHEN THEY STEAL OUR THINGS. MARIJUANA DOESN'T THAT I'VE EVER SEEN MAKE SOMEONE ROB YOU WHILE YOUR ARE ASLEEP IN YOUR OWN HOUSE AND BED. THAT'S SCARY, MARIJUANA ISN'T NEAR AS SCARY AS THAT. I ALSO BELIEVE PEOPLE SHOULD NOT DRIVE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF IT BECAUSE IT DOES, JUST LIKE A XANAX, CAN MAKE YOUR REACTIONS SLOW. NOW, YOU DO THE MATH!

Marijuana is being looked at by the government the same way it was when they made the videos of adults smoking "Marijuana Cigarettes" and hurting themselves. How many times have there been fatal "high crashes" normally they
re just driving too slow. If alcohol and cigarettes are legal I believe we have the choice. It can even be put to good use in the medicinal field. Every smoker has their reasons. If your feeling sick, if you just want to take the edge of, if you would just like to go to sleep. Whatever that may be it can be any worse than others things provided in this world. It's natural and grows from the earth so who should have the say that we can't have it?

I just kind of had to laugh about what you wrote, because I have neighbors that smoke pot... then I have a neighbor that is a crack head... well.. the crack head is always coming to our door asking if we would like to buy a half burnt candle, or a half ate bag of candy.. even at 2am. so they can get their money... but not one of my neighbors that smoke MJ have ever came begging me to buy anything off of them!!
