Why does the US (land of the free) resist anything that will increase our personal freedoms?

Of course we should decriminalize the use of pot! Why Not?

There is no reason for marijuana use to be a criminal offence! I see that two people here voted against it without leaving a comment-with out informing us why they believe that it should remain prohibited. Is that because they have no real reason for their position?

The ones who had voted it down are the ones who do not question why it is illegal in the first place, they just believe what the government controlled media tells them.
The pharmaceutical companies is one of the main reasons why it is illegal in the first place. The pharmaceutical companies are making billions of dollars from people getting addicted to their drugs & the side effects of their drugs. They are paying the politicians billions in campaign funds to keep pot illegal because they know pot would put them out of business. I hope it is legalized in California when the people there vote on prop 19 in November, if it passes then it would send a clear message to the rest of the country that people are fed up with wasting money on an unconstitutional never-ending drug war that has cost us billions of tax-payer money over the last 40 years.

I agree totally. The Medical Corporation is doubtless at the head and tail of the opposition to decriminalization of this flowering herb.

I also believe the Criminal Corporation of law enforcement entities resist legalization seeing the loss of revenue they would face. Law enforcement receives 10.7 billion annually in tax payer moneys to "fight marijuana" use. Then of course there are the fines handed out to those convicted of using or distributing. Thats no small chunk of change. The "war on drugs" has proven to be very lucrative, and with the legalization of this one very popular plant I would foresee a sharp decline in the use of other illegal and harmful substances.

Blah! I hate this stupid shite! It should just be another herb I can grow in my garden! Everyone I know uses it. Even people you wouldn't think of as "druggies" use it. I've been using it for 20 years now, and I've smoked it with teachers, doctors, lawyers, LEO's, PTO members,US Marine's, even the Mayor of a small town we were protesting in. Rich and Poor, educated and uneducated...Everyone has some history with Mary Jane.

It's a silly game, pretending it's a dangerous drug that only "bad" people use. Putting hard working citizens in jail for "possession". It's overwhelmingly the poor who face these charges, when was the last time you heard of a wealthy and influential person convicted of using marijuana? Is it because they don't use it? LOL.

Our founding forefathers are turning in their graves from what this country has done become. Our founders had even grew & cultivated it & it was one of the main cash crops during the colonial times.

Marijuana is a plant, not a drug. It has many benefits.

All drugs should be legal.Then the people getting rich from selling them would have to get a real job like everyone else.Drugs will never be legal because just like I said then the people making money off selling them would not be making money any more.That also means everyone on the "take" would not be getting their cut either like cops,judger,lawyers,doctors,go vernment officials and the list gos on and on.

If anything, we should outlaw ciggarretes which cause death, not a harmless plant that has never killed a human.
