The legalization of marijuana will take it out of the pushers hands. The money raised can help our economy. People that abuse the weed should be imprisoned for 20 years.

Legalize it to the point that every house has a few plants growing in the yard. We have a white house vegetable garden. Why not a white house grow 'n toke? lol. Invite the Congress. Maybe we could get them off their asses long enough to do something.

I can and have survived without it in my life and so can anyone else. An excuse to use it is just an excuse to get high. Sure, it might help your bad back, but when you finally get your sinces back I bet you will still feel the pain. It did not cure it, it just made you forget about it and everything else you were suppose to remember for that time of being high. I can preach all day on this subject, but, why should I when you are sitting there, toking as you read this and not getting the point in your fried brain anyhow? I have never and may never, have one good excuse told to me that will ever change my mind about a drug like marijuana. It is illegal for a very good reason I assure you. Just ask a lot of families in Lincoln Count that have lost loved ones who thought it would never end up killing them at such young ages. Sure laugh at me, make any idiot comment you want for I knw you will, I still stand strong on this issue of it being illegal. As the mothers, who has babies if the husband ha a choice of baby milk or something illegal if most of them would not go out and buy the illegal drugs. And now you the tax payers are forking out yor hard earned taxes to give that mother food stamps to buy the milk. So, Iknow and se it does so much harm and making it legal is only going to make matters MUCH worse than they are!

You're very uneducated on the subject. MJ is a great alternative to prescription pills, which act in the same way...a temporary fix....but pills are very addictive.
MJ also helps AIDS and cancer patients with appetite...the healt benefits to to numerous to list.

Uneducated just because I do not think it should be legalized ???????? Have you ever had cancer in YOUR life? I have. Battled it for over 7 good years and did chemo and had way to many surgeries to talk about due to Cancer. NOT ONCE did I want or need to use marijuana at all in this time of my life. There is safer alternatives than marijuana to use for this by eating salted crackers and salted french fries for the sickness chemo brings long with it. And I know if I smoked it or popped the pill it sure was not going to make my hair grow back any faster. When given the option to use it or not, I ask myself and the doctrs and nurses standing there, "WHY ON EARTH WOULD I WANT TO BE MADE DRUNK OFF A MEDICINE WHEN I AM SICK ENOUGH OFF OF CHEMO?" They all agreed it would make me sicker, but help out with the tentions of the therapy. Again I said to them all, " In ohter words it is just a good excuse to use it legally if I did want it to get high!"...And I can still preach and pove it is not so in the medical fields that it helps anything or anyone...can you prove it does?

No, you're not uneducated "just because [you] do not think it should be legalized." You're uneducated due to the fact you're misinformed on the subject, which has resulted in your opinion.

SUPPORT freedom of choice and the legalization of cannabis.

Greg said it right. lol.
In the same paragraph you talk about Chemo, then you speak of the dangers of marijuana?
You do realize that many times it's not the cancer that kills...it's the Chemo. You realize that right?
MJ helps prevent nausea, so "they" were wrong.
You could have been so much more comfortable in your sickness if you would think of MJ has an herbal remedy...how do you think our ancestors used it? Yes...I CAN prove it does...
MJ used medicinally does not get you drunk! Educate yourself!!

I think it is a more natural alternitive than pills because so many perscription might help cause other problems. If they would perscribe it in the pill form for pain(which they have) I would take it.Now the point that it is illegal I agree it should be made legal then take it. I agree this is much better than alcohol, and I believe there are alot of things that put people on welfare. like overspending, pills, or just life so you cant group all people that this is why they are on welfare.
