It's a good source of revenue if taxed.

It is a drug that causes one to go to higher drugs.

Marijuana does not lead to more drug use. It is not the "gateway drug"-that would be beer! When marijuana is legal, it will be safe-without dangerous additives and have a consistent THC level. Marijuana is safer than alcohol and anti-anxiety drugs. Other societies that have de-criminalized this drug have had no increase in crime or more drug use.

I have recently discovered the amazing benifits of Marijuana. NOT just as a medicine but the many many other benifits of this awesome fiber. Times have changed, our laws need to change as well. How else can we all move forward?

Where are you getting this information from? If it's a legitimate source, I'm open to other ideas. My experience working in chemical dependency does not support that.
