If I have to explain it to you then you have already been smoking to much of it. I know first hand what it does, all I have to do is look at my brother.

Maybe your brother is the problem and not the grass he smokes. Not everyone should do everything. Some can drink, some can't. Some can do all kinds of illicit drugs and maintain a perfectly normal life. And there are some who fail at life with out any kind of drug use.

I myself smoke daily and have been an employer over twenty years. Does this make me a failure? I don't think so.

Yes I support legalizing marijuana because look how many people are in prison cause they had less than an ounce or smoking it.It cost tax payers money to build more prisons and to house inmates. There is no one on earth that has never overdosed on marijuana but look at the drugs you can buy over the counter. There are people who has died on alcohol and over the counter drugs! I feel if you are 21, you be able to buy marijuana just like alcohol and should be taxed like alcohol! It would put the drug dealer out of business! The drug dealer is not going to ask a person are they old enough to buy it.You and I both know they are going to sell it to them! A teenager can't buy alcohol in stores but it is a lot easier for a teenager to buy marijuana on the streets! If the states would legalize it, it would take it off the streets!! Alcohol has cause more deaths than anything! There are more pros then cons in marijuana then alcohol!!!!!
