it is criminal for a "government" to be a "judgement". america is ass backwards and is not a judgement but a government. if a citizen thinks he lives in a judgement and accepts government mandating consumption of plants and herbs then his judgement will be the governing of his consumption of said plants and herbs.

I'm a very occasional smoker. Did when the Saints won the NFC and then again for the Super Bowl. However, it is unconstitutional to make any drugs illegal which is why the system of schedules are set up so that the states can enforce their laws based upon the schedules, which brings in more money for not only the local authorities but federal too.

Most that don't do marijuana, or any other drug, isn't going to do it even if it's legal. Those who are doing it now, will continue; but it's doubtful that legalization will adversely affect the whole of our population. It's senseless for our legal system to expend so much money to jail those who get arrested for smoking pot and/or possessing it....except for the fact of all the money paid in fines for these infractions by otherwise good, law-abiding citizens.

To UNKNOWN: You make a good point. Mother-in-law's tongues are highly poisonous, which makes it a more dangerous plant than marijuana.

If we decriminalize marijuana, we can release otherwise harmless users/possessors of it from our prisons and make room for the really dangerous criminals like the rapists, murderers, and child molesters who walk freely on our streets and prey on our citizens. Those are the kind of people who should be locked up away from society and our children.

Where in the world did you come up with it being legal for minors? You are apparently ASSuming. You also make it sound like FL's adults can't keep their children under control. We have a great bunch of kids here.

I got off all the narcotics my dr perscribed to me and now use medical cannibis. The pills were killing me. No one has ever died from a cannibis over dose. Screw the cops, no one will tell me and my new dr whats best for me. After 27 surgeries i can and will do what me and my dr think is best. 20,000 reports of its benifits can't be wrong. Cannibis has given me my life back. wake up louisiana legalise it.

Marijuana is illegal ONLY because it cannot be taxed, because it is grown and sold by people in their homes. MJ is a billion dollar industry, and the government is just angry because they can't get a cut. Alcohol is completely legal, but drunk drivers kill thousands of people a year. Cigarettes, chewing tobacco, even some prescription drugs can be misused. People who talk sh*t about marijuana are people who haven't used it. Medical or not, why can't marijuana be legal for recreational use???? Because it's bad.... because the gov/law enforcement told you it is. smh.

We are wasting money trying to stop the use and dealing of marijuana. It can not be stopped because there are too many people who are already using it. It has many health benefits and can help with multiple sclerosis, cancer, and many other diseases.

Same with my dad. He has M.S. and it is disappointing to see that there is something out there that can help with the pain, yet it is illegal.

Alcohol and tobacco do so much more damage to people than marijuana. Like really, marjuana allows you to get high and you get health benefits. Alcohol gives you liver disease and tobacco makes you stink and puts tar in your lungs and gives you lung cancer. No one has ever died from marijuana, but millions have died from tobacco and alcohol. and you don't even have to smoke mary jane, you can just that shit in cookies or drinks and stuff like that, make edibles with it.

I believe if it is a natural herb that has been grown and used since way back in time. People have only benefited from it from all of the research that has and is being done. I have MG and the more I reading about other patients with MG, the use of marijuana for MG is very beneficial. I will be discussing this with my doctors and will definately be looking into the pros and cons of the use. I will let everyone know the outcome of my doctors visits.
