It's a harmless flower given to us from the earth,It helps many people with many different types of ailments, Some as simple as relaxing and relieving stress and some as serious as wasting disease. All with no dangerous side effects at all. its is a crime in itself that people are persecuted for using and distributing,cultivating exct. "Free Us"

Marijuana Prohibition is Absurd and always has been.people have been using it for thousands of years with problems except from the prohibition of it. Simple as that. Any one still saying that it is harmful in anyway that deserves prohibition. they are brain washed by bull pucky or work in a branch of law enforcement that stands to lose money from legalization of it.

One of the problems that the marijuana reform movement consistently faces is that everyone wants to talk about what marijuana does, but no one ever wants to look at what marijuana prohibition does.

Marijuana never kicks down your door in the middle of the night and puts a fully loaded assault rifle in your face. Marijuana never locks up sick and dying people in cages with rapist and murders. Marijuana does not suppress medical research. Marijuana does not peek in bedroom windows. Marijuana does not take away kids scholarships.

Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could.

Marijuana has never killed anybody, therefore it should be legal so kids wont go under the kitchen sink or medicine cabinets to get stoned and die....Just sayin it doesn't take a "Rocket Surgeon" to figure that out!

There was more harm done between alcohol and tobacco in the last year than maijuana in the last 1000's of years its been used, plus legalizing and taxing it would generate billions of dollars per year including money saved from the (failing) drug war and would over all benefit everyone except the people who run the perscription drug companies who would lose a lot of money because people don't need their drugs they have a better, more organic, less harmful drug. But in all realization the government will not do it without a large movement by the people and still its a big chance.

Cannabis has been used for recreation and as a medicine since before the ancient egyptians. Many anxiety sufferers could substitute their benzodiazepine use(a deadly and addictive drug, that is one of the few substances, alongside alcohol, that can cause death due to acute withdrawal). Some with chronic pain have been able to quit using morphine and other heroin-like pharmaceuticals and are able to use cannabis instead. Any single OTC rx you can think of causes more deaths per year than cannabis has in its entire history of human use. The negative effects of pot are negligible when compared to alcohol or tobacco. Prohibition doesn't work, it makes criminals rich, thus causing more to turn to "crime"... really I could go on forever. I figure thats enough though.

Harmless and helps people relax after a tough day. It's an escape from stress. Alcohol is more dangerous, but yet it is legal. Strange world we live in...

legalize = less people in the legal system
taxation = a head start for our state and local economy
