Its safe in responsible hands, much safer than alcohol. If your going to let alcohol be legal which is much more dangerous you have to let MJ be legal. It is also one of the highest natural sources of omega fatty acids in the world. What an amazing plant and we aren't even allowed to use it. Nobody has ever died from it, so how is it considered dangerous? Painkillers kill so many and alcohol as well. Marijuana never hurt anyone physically and is shown to reduce to probability of tumors of the head and neck when a study was done on long time users. Safe, Healthy, Illegal. Makes sense right?

Because by legalizing marijuana the county and states can build revenue by taxing the sale of marijuana. It will also stop the waste of taxpayer dollars for prosecuting someone for possession of a controlled substance.

We all know the claims and rhetoric about marijuana are lies. It is closer to coffee than vodka. Alcohol is THE gateway drug. Big waste of money to chase potheads who only threaten our frozen pizza supply.
I know Doctors, Lawyers and judges and many productive people who smoke and will never stop smoking.

too many young people are doing this drug. And it only leads to them wanting more; or a harder drug.
First off pot is not addictive.. I have smoked for months, since I was 14 years old and experimented with one other drug bc my friends were all doing it yet I didn't become addicted to it and didnt make a habbit of doing it, and then stopped for 6 months or more just because I didn't want to smoke anymore.. As for people that turn to other drugs thats their choice and it's because they want to experience different highs.. I have a nerve problem that dr.s can't figure out what it is and its been 2 years, meanwhile I am only 24 years old, going back and forth to Westchester Medical Center dealing with the chief of every deparment and when I smoke it helps with the pain maybe not like a pain killer I get but it lets me go longer before I have to take another one. So I would reconsider what your say! Not trying to be rude but it's true.

Marijuana is a good treatment for people with cancer, people who are in chronic pain, and people who are underweight with eating disorders. It could help many people if it was legalized. It also woul make more jobs becasue there would be stores who need employees and people to grow it to supply the stores. This would only work great if medical marijuana licences were issues just to prevent children from being able ro buy it from these stores!
