Jim it is not truly a drug as it is categorized. Even a high school student could tell you viagra, zanax, cocaine or beer and cigarettes are far more toxic to you than the Earths kindest bud. I might be a little more militant than most but I think people who foment these lies are at best ignorant and at worst malicious. The good far outweighs the bad when informed parties debate the legalization of a bud that could end the drug companies monopoly on everything that ails you - and they know it....

It should never have been illegal in the first place, it's a real disgrace that our elder politicians allowed themselves to be corralled by public interest, drug companies and the media and then pandered to an ignorant public until they outlawed an item considered indispensable by all manner of people for time immemorial.

It makes one lose faith in all government when this travesty continues day and night..

Drugs are the decline of society. Most heroin addicts say they started with pot only to go to something stronger. NO! REALLY?! What a shocker....

MJ is illegal to simply increase the amount of police/judicial and correction personnel.
The drug has been proven to be less damaging to your health than alcohol.
NYC arrested 50,000 people last year for simple possession. That is thousands and thousands of police and judicial hours wasted. They indicated in the article the avg fine was $130. The city loses money with every arrest. Control and tax, that is the way to ensure the drug is not sold on the street and to people who are underage.
No solution is perfect, there must be compromises on each side.
Legalize Pot, there are far greater problems that could be addressed with the time wasted failing to stop "drug".

Well, you're wrong it's usually beer.... but your myopic view of the situation prevents you from being honest.

Pot has no effect that is even close to the effect of Heroin, Alcohol does, should we go back 90 yrs? It worked out so well the first time.

A blonde woman was speeding down the road in her little Red sports car and was pulled over by a female police officer, who was also a blonde.

The officer asked to see the lady's driver's license.
She dug through her purse and was getting progressively more agitated.
"What does it look like?" she finally asked.
The policewoman replied, "It's square and it has your picture on it."
The driver finally found a mirror in her purse, looked at it and handed it to the policewoman.
"Here it is," she said.
The officer looked at the mirror, then handed it back saying, "Okay, you can go. I didn't realize you were a cop."

You're taking the ignorant line here. You should look around ask some people you really know if they partake. It's like that geico commercial you must live under a rock. oh and junkies are a totally different story. That's a powerful drug not as addictive as cigarettes mind you but close. Now Pot on the other hand is NOT addictive and as you become more enlightened or you grow older or ill you will see the least toxic and most therapeutic substance on earth is Marijuana. I actually feel bad for all the old timers who were conditioned to think this is a gateway drug. You're the ones taking whatever chemical concoctions those idiots in our government let you have. PS that stuff will kill you not pot.

How will the people from Mastic and Shirley deal with their miserable existences without marijuana? Have some compassion for the trailer trash of Long Island.

LMFAO! Last time I checked smoke of any kind didn't belong in the lungs. But hey, whatever way you can rationalize your epic failure in life.

Mastic mastic beach and Shirley were never in the pot business, it's always been about crack and heroin, child prostitution, and alcohol.

The US government funded studies which they later repealed which showed that marijuana did no harm to the cognitive abilities or the physical well being of any human. No human in the history of humanity who has used this drug, in the over 4000 years of our use of marijuana, has suffered disease as a result of it's use. Water is more toxic than marijuana, and the government knows that. The study that anti drug advocates cite when they say weed kills brain cells is one the federal government ran subsequently after their original study because it did not agree with the politics of the incumbent president of the time. The study conducted consisted of putting gas masks on monkeys and suffocating them with pure marijuana smoke. Animals need to breath oxygen in order to carry out cellular respiration and suffocating any animal and depriving them of oxygen causes cell death, including brain cells. One of the first concerns of a doctor after a patient stops breathing for several minutes is: has my patient sustained brain damage? Hopefully those who are opposed to the legalization of marijuana decide to reconsider this modern political issue. It is a little known fact amongst Americans that the first president of this great nation, who gained the military victories in order to establish this union amongst states, smoked and grew marijuana. Marijuana certainly did not seem to hinder his intellect or his physical health, he died an old man, quick as a whip. In fact, you used to be able to pay your taxes in hemp until the turn of the 20th century, with the exception of a period during the world wars where the government supported and even supplied equipment to American farmers in order to grow hemp for the war effort; hemp which was used to create rope for navy ships. I bet you didn't know that the founding documents of the USA consists of hemp paper; hemp creates the highest quality paper available even today.
