God made marijuana not handcuffs. Anyone who believes in god but thinks marijuana should remain illegal is calling god a liar and they will burn in hell.

The government needs to do a better job at convincing the American voters if they want to continue on with this failed prohibition of marijuana. They claim that the 'plant' is dangerous and deadly, yet they can't provide any proof or credible evidence to back these claims up.

Marijuana does not contribute to violence, prohibition however does. One of the problems that the marijuana reform movement consistently faces is that everyone wants to talk about what marijuana does, but no one ever wants to look at what marijuana prohibition does.

Marijuana never kicks down your door in the middle of the night and puts a fully loaded assault rifle in your face. Marijuana never locks up sick and dying people in cages with rapist and murders. Marijuana does not suppress medical research. Marijuana does not peek in bedroom windows. Marijuana does not take away kids scholarships.

Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could.

I do not use the stuff but I worked this nations federal max security federal prisons 20 years. We are overcrowded because of pot offenses. When a child molester gets the same time as a pot dealer that causes me to wonder about our laws and sentences. I never had any violence from the pot users but the other drugs very much so. It just makes no sense to me personally it is just a very mild tranquilizer . Also people that harm other people should be high priority not users of pot. That is my opinion
