It is less damaging than alcohol which is legal and no one should go to jail for doing it.

This drug is no worse than alcohol or cigarettes, leading to lesser defects yet same supposed buzz of the first two drugs. The legalization is only opposed by the close-minded people out there believing it is much more harmful-as tehy've been brainwashed-than it really is.

It's ridiculous to spend the money being spent to keep pot illegal. Legalizing it will not change the amount of people that are going to smoke it.

It's Medical uses are Proven over thousands of years. The Only reason it is not legal are all political & miss information. The so called War on drugs like the past War on alcohol is a complete failure the more money the government spends to fight Drugs is in direct relation to the higher higher cost of life over the drugs
But the deaths & ruined Lives over drugs are more often from People Who Sell Them than People who use them!

I'm sorry but it's almost impossible to die from smoking marijuana alone. You should do some research. If you know someone that died from smoking it was indirect. People have died from drinking water, lets protect our children by banning it. Making marijuana legal may actually make it even more safe through regulations and standards. Marijuana is easy to find on the street (I could get my hands on it while in the 5th grade). Who do you want your kids to get it from the store or the guy behind it?

there are 3 reasons it was made illegal. Timber companys, liquor companys and the racism issue. Timber, instead of embracing a new crop that would yeild 5x nations gross profit they opposed it. Liquor because during the prhibition weed was legal and everyone used it instead and when it was lifted no one wanted liquor anymore so it cut into their proffits so it was opposed. and finally racism cause once again in the 30 jass was climbing in popularity at a suprising rate, most musicians were black. also people would buy marijuana at the shows from the musicians thats how they made money, so now you have black people becoming wealthy and the white man hated that. and there you have it ladies and gentleman the 3 axis of marijuana prohibition

I couln't care less whether it is legal or not because it is easy to get now. Also an addict will be an addict regardless. I just want to say that I can tell that most people on here are children because of their ridiculous comments using terms like " no one" and totally unsubstansiated historical garbage. I have been an RN for over 20 years and the ignorance here is unbelieveable.

In a 2010 report by the Common Sense for Drug Policy Organization, the American annual causes of death were classified under the following categories:

Tobacco Related 430,700
Alcohol Related 110,640
Prescription Drugs 32,000
Suicide 30,575
Homicide 18,272
Drug Induced Deaths 16,926
NSAID’s (such as Aspirin) 7,600
Marijuana 0 deaths

Before you start to wonder about the veracity of the figures above, you should be aware that "NO ONE" has ever been officially declared dead from direct or indirect marijuana consumption.

The figures above have NO veracity. They total to 646,713 deaths. In 2009 there were 1,639,502 deaths in the US. In 2010 there were 1,534,343 deaths in the US. These are official US Census Bureau numbers. So you are about a million short. Also what about deaths classified as natural causes? This does not seem like a closed double blind study with any acceptable statistical significance. You are correct about one thing the cause of death on a certificate of death would not be listed as "marijuana". First of all because when you do a blood toxicity you don't look for marijuana you test for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and MOST obviously death is listed as what vital organ failed primary and then secondary cause if it can be determined and this is often not explored except in criminal cases or high profile deaths.

Did you know that Louisiana has the highest incarceration and the majority of those incarcerated are for possession of marijuana. Just think how much this would safe taxpayers by legalizing marijuana. People are going to continue to use even if not legal. Imagine the amount of money taxpayers would safe not prosecuting as a criminal offense. Why we would do something that makes sense in Louisiana.
