Could not agree more! If its not green it ain't clean:) and marijuana has never made pple want to rob, steal or kill for it. If anything EVERYONE should be 420 friendly and we'd live in a more peacefully world

kill the black market, boost our struggling economy, nowhere near as bad as alcohol, save tax dollars from law enforcement pay & simple possession lockup.

Your body naturally produces THC. Why should it be illegal to put more of a natural substance in your body?

It used to be illegal for women to vote too, just because it's a law doesn't mean it's truth.

Any credible source will do. One news article. One video file. Just one. Since you are going to "bury me," finding one (1) credible reference should be easy.
Good luck with that.
The only thing you've actually done is "rant" like a prepubescent monkey flinging digital poo.
Twice you've alluded to a "conspiracy" against marijuana, in some juvenile attempt to subtly claim that "the Man is keeping you down." You are as cliche', irrelevant and boring, as ever.
You see Princess, when I said that "you don't matter," I literally meant it. The reason marijuana and other drugs are illegal, is due entirely to the fact that they do not contribute anything to society. "Contribution" is one of the founding principles of our legal system.
In other words, nothing "good" nor "productive" comes from you sitting in grandma's basement, getting stoned.
-- You're not more creative.
-- You're not more productive.
-- You're not working.
-- You're not adding to the economy.
-- You're not contributing back to the populous, whatsoever.
In fact, this reality is the genesis for the term "getting stoned." As in, when you smoke pot you become dormant, unmoving and unproductive. Like a rock.
By design, the chemical makeup of cannabis, specifically THC, makes most people "do nothing." Clinically speaking, cannabis directly triggers Depersonalization Disorder. In short, it has been scientifically proven that marijuana causes you to be fucking worthless as a human being, on a medical level. If you don't believe me, go Google, then come back
Ah, what's wrong Buttercup? Feeling... buried? It's almost like I argue for a living, isn't it?
Stay down dumbass. It will hurt less.
Bored much? That's a wonderful argument against smoking pot! Now, would you please explain why, because apparently I'm too stoned to understand, it's ILLEGAL? There are plenty of products out that people use and it makes them lazy and unproductive. Basically everything that simplifies anything we do. The fact is, we should have a choice. There should be age requirements, and other strictures, such as, places where it would be allowed, other places banned. Seriously though the war on drugs will never be won, as long as they are making them people will want them. The drug cartels would take a big hit to their pocketbooks though. So would all the crooked cops and politicians. They won't legalize marijuana as long as Mexican people want to move to America. That was the original reason, guess what, I saw that on the History channel. All our men were off fighting in the WW's and the Mexican people saw all those job opportunities. Can't blame 'em. The government did some digging, saw that they were brining in marijuana and making money without paying taxes. Also they weren't American citizens so they did what they thought best. Demonized pot. Did you know that cannabis doesn't kill brain cells? So much for that lie.

NBrandyWine, you are right. Pot does make you lazy and stupid. Personally, I prefer alchohol, which makes me violent and stupid, it's a lot more fun...

Alcohol kills more people every day than than marijuana ever dreamed of. And is safer than than these man made pills that these drug companies don't know the side effects of.

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.

But you have no problem with alcohol I'm sure you probably have one yourself. But you tell me how many cases of stoned driving resulted in a accident where people were injured or killed none that I know of. Alcohol kills thousands a year and let's not even talk about cigarettes which kill millions of people every year but no one calls that murder or says it is wrong so you tell me who the fuck are you to judge any of us. Your prolly Christian too and like most you spend more time finding a speck in someone else's eye that you can't see the moat hanging from your own. A satisfied stoner and moralist
Alcohol kills, weed saves the day ;D
