The government took a weed and made it illegal because....it helps so many health problems which wasnt/isnt good business for drug companies...hemp can make a car stronger and for less money..just research Henry Ford who did it..but that wasnt good for the steel industry..hemp can also make rope, cloths (textiles), paper, medicine and on down the line. The truth about this miricle plant which was/is God made needs to come out...btw..grab your KJV Bible and look a 1:1:29..Also..the Feds have no right to make our choices. This is a states issuse. Not a federal issuse. Vote Ron Paul 2012 nd stop the D/R bs in DC. Visit www.dailypaul.com and www.RonPaul2012.com

The AMA says the war on drugs does more harm to families than the drug itself. We've had a war on drugs over 60 yrs, are we winning?

....well let's see, humans have been using marijuana for 10,000 years. A few decades ago some dumbass declared war on the "plant." The government that he was a part of thought they could make this "plant" become extinct and wipe it off the face of the earth. Nice try, idiots. The fact is this "plant" is here to stay and will be here long after we as a country are gone. I'm pretty sure that this plant will still be here long after humans are gone. I'm also pretty sure that it's safe to say that this "plant" isn't going to throw up a white flag and surrender anytime soon. America may as well come to terms with this "plant" and learn to live with each other in peace and harmony. Seriously, this has got to be the most worthless debate that we as a human species have ever been in. WAKE UP AMERICA, IT'S TIME TO END MARIJUANA PROHIBITION!!!

Hemp can make over 2500 products and bring job growth across the country. Marijuana can be used to help sickness, and in a lot of cases, cure people. Like those with cancer. Big pharma doesnt want you to know this.

MISFIT4PEACE says, The truth about this miricle plant which was/is God made needs to come out...btw..grab your KJV Bible and look a 1:1:29..
If you going to quote the Bible, post the WHOLE verse and not just what you want people to believe.
Genesis 1:29-30 KJV, says
29. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every herb for meat: and it was so.
I do not see at all where God said smoke the weed and get high off of it, and he clearly states,"to you it shall be for meat."
I can only take that as meaning using it for seasoning of a meat.
The only way I can see you reading that and getting it to mean you smoke it, is, that you cook a goose with seasoning of the herbs and you burn the goose in the oven.

I think he meant that we should use marijuana to bake into brownies.

A little levity for the day:

Marijuana Quotes:

“Marihuana is responsible for the raping of white women by crazed negroes.”
—Hearst Newspapers Nationwide-1930

“Marihuana influenced negroes to look at white people in the eye, step on white men’s shadows, and look at a white woman twice.”
—Hearst Newspapers-1935

"After two puffs on a marijuana cigarette, I was turned into a bat."
-Marijuana Tax Act expert witness pharmacologist Dr James Munch-1937

“Marihuana is the most violent drug in the history of mankind.”
-Henry Anslinger, the father of the War on Drugs-1937

“If the hideous monster of Frankenstein came face to face with marihuana, he would drop dead of fright.”
—Anslinger, FBN, quoted in Hearst newspaper-1938

“Negro entertainers with their jazz and swing music are declared an outgrowth of marihuana use which possesses white women to tap their feet.”
—statements to Congress by Anslinger, FBN-1940

"Marijuana is more harmful than habit-forming opium, inducing fits of temporary insanity.”
—Newsweek, 1-15-45

“Marihuana leads to pacifism and Communist brainwashing.”
—Anslinger, before Congress-1948

“Marijuana leads to homosexuality, the breakdown of the immune system, and therefore to AIDS.”
-- Carlton Turner. White House Drug Czar under Ronald Reagan-1986

This is the basis of our current drug policy. If it wasn't so sad, it would be humorous.
