marijuana should be legal for waaaay too many reasons to list. wtf is wrong with the rednecks who think alcohol is more dangerous than weed? if weed were legal in MO for one week, over a million bucks would be saved in legal fees alone (cop, court, clerk, judge, attorney, jail fees). What more do you need?

Stoned Presidents: U.S Presidents that Smoked Marijuana
Before marijuana prohibition began in the late 1930’s, many people, including some of our nations leaders
grew cannabis for a variety of reasons. It’s fairly well known that cannabis has thousands of industrial uses,
and has been grown for thousands of years. While simply growing cannabis is far from proof that someone
smoked it, there is still evidence showing many would-be U.S Presidents enjoyed it for recreational and medicinal uses.
George Washington
Washington routinely smoked marijuana to alleviate the pain from his ailing teeth.
Washington’s diary recounts his efforts to better cultivate and enhance his crops of marijuana.
Thomas Jefferson
Jefferson grew cannabis on his plantation and smuggled Chinese hemp seeds to America. He also is
believed to have given specialsmoking blends out as personal gifts which is why he makes the list.
James Madison
Madison once remarked that hemp gave him insight to create a new and democratic nation.
James Monroe
Monroe began smoking it as Ambassador to France & continued to the age of 73.
Andrew Jackson
Jackson has been documented to have smoked cannabis and tobacco cigars along withthe troops he led.
Zachary Taylor
Like Andrew Jackson, Taylor is said to have smoked with his troops in one or more of the
many wars he was in.
Franklin Pierce
Continuing a popular theme of the era, Pierce also smoked with his troops as a general in the Mexican-American War.
In a letter to his family, he says cannabis is “about the only good thing” in the war.
Abraham Lincoln
Quotes (real and fake) about Lincoln enjoying hemp are all over the internet. While some debate if Lincoln
sparked up, manyresources point to yes.
John F. Kennedy
Close acquaintances say Kennedy used cannabis regularly to control his back pain (even during his term) and
actually planned on legalizing marijuana during his second term.
Jimmy Carter
Along with his efforts to legalize marijuana, Some say Carter also hosted many marijuana smoke filled events
at the WhiteHouse. This leads most to assume Carter at least tried it at some point in life.
George W. Bush
Bush publicly refused to answer the marijuana question. He was later caught saying he refused to talk about it
“because I don’t want some little kid doing what I tried”.
Bill Clinton
Clinton famously stated that he smoked but “didn’t inhale”. He has been known to bend the truth every now and then,
so he still makes the list
Barack Obama
Even though he joked off many American’s wishes to legalize marijuana, Obama has been very open with his own marijuana
smoking in the past, once saying “I inhaled frequently. That was the point”.
Some Pretty Smart People huh copy n paste
You are a dumbass. Half can't be prove or are stretched truths. I have heard this for years. I have smoked pot and know many that do. And to think this is evidence for legalization is exactly why it will never be legalized. I think it should be legalized.

I think there are a lot of people who have issues with addicts, or people who socially use. I am recovering from heroin addiction and think that some of the stuff said on here is repulsive..get right.

Never killed anyone! Take the alcohol and switch it with marijuana, the death rate would decrease significantly! Helps with arthritis and with eating. Can't overdose on it and not everyone will smoke it if it was legal, it would be treated as a great opportunity for business and can make many fine products.

Its legal for medical purposes in 16 states. Not all americans are backward inbred rednecks. I also vote conservative and conservatism means gov out of my life. You would rather see people with chronic pain poison there livers and suffer other side effects from pharmasutical pain killers as if their lifes are not bad enough. Now you rednecks that don't suffer with tremendous daily pain and the DEA make it almost impossible to get narcotic pain killers legally through liscensed DR. So we just suffer and you rally through life with your better than though attitude no pain no worrys able to work and enjoy life and screw the people who can benefit from medical marajuanna.
