Marijuana was not outlawed because of its affects. Marijuana was outlawed because the hemp rope created from cannabis plants is several times stronger and cheaper than twine rope, which began to dig into the wealthy farm owners' pockets that grew twine, who, in turn, funded a swift prohibition campaign against marijuana, under the propaganda that marijuana is a deadly drug and kills brain cells. You now are unable to enjoy marijuana freely because the "higher-ups" didn't want you to buy hemp rope. They told you it was bad for you, without any research, or proof. Sadly, in the early 1900's, the people blindly listened.......but, you aren't as ignorant as they were, are you?Why is it illegal anyone somebody tell me I'm still a youngin... Who would love to while I'm still young pass my fellow police officers on the street and exchange a friendly wave holdin a joint in my hand...life would just be so freaking beautiful!

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

I don't really see any reason not to legalize medicinal marijuana in TN. If nothing else look at all the jobs that will be produced as dispensaries, and growing facilities open. Our dear Greene county especially needs this stimulation to greg our pill addicted, disrespectful, and over-all run down people out of our current economic sludge that we fight endlessly to keep afloat.
