Its time to end our nonsensical policy and legalize marijuana so resources can be better used to combat real crime.

Marijuana is harmless herb (not a drug). I do not smoke - wouldn't mind eating some tho. Free the weed; end the war.

Alcohol & cigarettes do serious harm to your body and can lead directly to death, yet they are legal. Marijuana has no proven adverse side effects, particularly when consumed in food form, while it also has many health benefits such as treating pain, anxiety, sleeplessness, stomach aches, and loss of appetite.

The government needs to do a better job at convincing the American voters if they want to continue on with this failed prohibition of marijuana. They claim that the 'plant' is dangerous and deadly, yet they can't provide any proof or credible evidence to back these claims up. If you want to know the FACTS about marijuana then click on the link below.

Well then the only viable reason the U.S. refuse to legalize it is because they are on the Mexican Cartel's payroll(among others). All Border wars would stop, and so would the government's cut.

It is a natural herb. God created it and it does help with lots of different illness.

The legalization of Marijuana will bring new job opportunities to the state, in agriculture, transportation, and will help regulate it from minors using it. according to recent studies, more 13 year old have smoked pot than cigarettes, because a dealer doesn't care about age, but a liquor store won't risk their license to sell it to someone underage. it would generate tax revenues from several sources, including income tax, sales tax, transportation tax, and licensing to grow it. Legalization also brings the opportunity to research using it as a biofuel, and hemp oil can be used to make hundreds of products currently requiring the use of fossil fuels. It can also be used for heating and electric generation, reducing costs for utilities.

Meth is the brain killer in Franklin. Not marijuana or alcohol. Franklin is a white trash place and getting worse all the time with meth. Some marijuana would be a big step up from meth.

People don't deserve to be treated like criminals for consuming an herb that God created whilst alcoholics can drink themselves to death legally without persecution, which is certainly their right. However, medical cannabis users who are disabled are put in jail while the state collects a good portion of their meager disability income in court fees. Anyone who supports that should have their brains blown out for being cruel, idiotic wankers, and the rest of us would be much better off without these morons who want to EVERYBODY in prison for consensual "crimes" that don't concern them to begin with.

Oh and by the by I'm not in Tn, tablet' s GPS is messed up....was born Sylva, lived in Franklin for over ten years, and am intimately acquainted with the local politics among other things and have dedicated countless hundreds of hours to reading both the proper scientific research as well as the propaganda, junk "science", history, etc. of cannabis. Before my health went really bad I also studied constitutional law, and I can tell you, beyond a shadow of a doubt that laws against cannabis and other drugs are in and of themselves illegal because they're unconstitutional, and that the only reason any given drug is legal or not is because Jews and their lapdogs decide which way is more profitable...the US, while constantly screaming and insisting that we're so bloody free in prisons more people than anywhere else in the world, most of those people for nonviolent drug offenses...the private prison industry, the rehab industry, etc., would collapse without millions of innocent people to imprison for doing nothing more than using, selling, buying, making, or growing certain substances, almost all of which are infinitely safer than antidepressants, antipsychotics, mood "stabilizers", and nearly all pharmecutical drugs period...nobody seems to mind that mind altering, dangerous psychiatric drugs are prescribed for physical illnesses and other things that they're not intended for and that they kill people everyday...none of these ignorant morons (usually dumpy, uneducated, middle-aged women who watch Fox Jews, er, news...) care that alcohol consumption kills more people every year than ALL ILLEGAL DRUGS COMBINED, because prejudice, ignorance, misinformation, and emotion guide their idiotic opinions rather than information, rationality, logic, facts, and everything else that is the foundation for a well informed opinion...I only hope that such idiots will quickly die off, because the sooner they do the better...if only they could be falsely imprisoned for some innocuous thing en masse, MAYBE they might get the message, but considering their staggering lack of intelligence, education, empathy, compassion, etc. and the degree of social conditioning, brainwashing, and misinformation, I highly doubt it...nevertheless, it would be extremely gratifying to have them locked up just for the sake of knowing that they would be suffering as they so richly deserve to do.

I can understand that selling anything as a business is taxable, but I agree with you (dontbelievesincops) about marijuana.

Its a natural plant, not owned, not patentented, etc.

So how can anybody say we can not grow a God given plant on our own property?

The only reason they get away with it is because they have the guns to enforce it. The will of the people is irrelevant, which is evident enough considering that in excess of three quarters of the population agree with us, goosey goosey. I am not opposed to reasonable taxation, but the fact that some guy on the last page said he wanted it decriminalize instead of legalized goes to show you how ignorant people are! In NC cannabis is already decriminalized, all that means is that extremely small amounts are misdemeanors...I believe anything over 42 grams is a felony, if I remember correctly. Also, that includes leaves, stems, stalks, systolic hairs, resin, etc. which means you (like someone close to me) will be put in jail or even prison for having nonpsychoactive plant material, plus in excess of a thousand dollars in court costs and a year of probation, without even having any buds. I myself was arrested as a juvenile just for ONE GRAM, one little bud, and had to pay court costs and do a year of probation...while Robby Holland was GIVING and selling bud to a friend of mine. Real great public policy huh! Medical users go to prison for having an herb that God created whilst the sherrif sells your medicine to his friends...if only these morons who supports this carp could know what is really going on behind-the-scenes...sickening!
