Marijuana is an herb that grows naturally from the ground, that has no dangerous man-made chemicals, and it has many medical benefits. I personally have watched loved ones suffer from cancer treatments and chronic pain. If marijuana had been legal for them to use, their suffering would not have been so intense. I have read many comments posted on this sight about how marijuana is a dangerous, hallucinagenic drug, that leads to harder drugs, and I totally disagree. I know several people, young and old, that have used marijuana, and they never hallucinated, or used harder drugs. In my opinion, marijuana is alot safer than drugs that are legal, that doctors prescribe every day. Marijuana does not have dangerous, life threatening side effects, like every drug prescribed by doctors. Even over the counter drugs have dangerous side effects. Also, it is not as addictive as legal drugs, or even cigarettes and alcohol. Pharmacutical companies make billions of dollars off of drugs that cause side effects. For instance; liver disease, urinary/digestive problems, heart problems, problems sleeping/not sleeping, respiratory problems, red/white blood cell problems, hallucinations, and many more side effects. Besides, what better way to stop dealers in their tracks. Also, we have a much greater problem. Crack, cocaine, meth, and all of the other drugs that are being dealt on a daily basis. Police officers are only doing their jobs by busting dealers/users of marijuana. It would be in all of our best interest, if they could foccus more on all of the harder drugs that take thousands of lives on a yearly basis. Not to mention, how it could help are crippled economy. Medical marijuana is already legal in 14 states, and in my opinion, medical marijuana should be legal everywhere.

Clear out our jails and courts of people who's only crime is growing a natural weed and replace them with drunk drivers and alcoholics.
