I most certainly do. Why well because my brother died of Cancer, he had it twice. The last episode was pancreatic. He said they only thing in the end that brought him peace was marijuana, why well becasue he was 5'11 and weighed 130 pounds, not his normal weight. He had issues keeping food down due to vomiting, but his smoking marijuana soothed his stomach and increased his appetite as well as relaxed him. Not to mention alcohol is legal and how many people die of alcohol each year? How many times on the news do you hear of someone dying in a car wreck due to marijuana, never. How many people die from smoking to much marijuana and becoming poisioned by it, yet alcohol causes this all the time. Not to mention it would do wonders for the economy, and it can be taxed high. The United States baffles me in their Ideals, we should look to Amersterdam.

Are you crazy? Marijuana impairs your judgement. Alcohol impairs you as well. You're not even supposed to operate a vehicle while taking narcotics! It's called "driving under the influence," you may know it as DUI. It's a drug. Not because the united states has dubbed it as a drug by making it illegal, but because it's addictive & it impairs you. And honestly, when you hear about a car wreck, they usually announce it as the person responsible was 'driving under the influence,' which can mean a number of different things and combinations. I have never outright heard a newscaster state 'the driver was drunk.' You really need to realize how often you contradict yourself in your posts. You also need to realize that you don't know everything.

I feel thats its a natural herb vs a synthetic option. I'd rather be able to smoke a herb verses taking a valium. And it's alot better then drinking booze and driving!!

...WOW. Maybe you should realize you don't know everything either. This man speaks from personal experience. What do you have? From the sound of it, you have a very misinformed and VERY NAIVE way of thinking and speaking with people. I give you a gold sticker for close-mindedness and poor judgement.

The only upside of legalizing marijuana: getting all the potheads to shutup and talk about something else besides how much pot they can smoke in a day, what kind they choose, and all the "benefits". So nope, not a good enough reason to legalize it, in my opinion. ;]
