It grows in the ground so God put it there for the use of adults human being to freely use or not use as they see fit. Same can be said for the coca plant and the opium plant they all should be freely available for adults only to use in there natural state as plant. It shows how suppressive government laws have become when human rights are even outlawed, this is a human right if you think about it, a human right that is being denied by repressive laws.
today there are more government laws around the world than ever before, what does that mean.

I smoked my first joint in July of 1969. Had my first legal sip of alcohol the same month.

I stopped using alcohol sometime in 1971 when I decided it was a dangerous drug that ruined many people's lives. At the time, even though it was a felony to possess marijuana I continued to use it because I enjoyed the feeling it produced.

I graduated from college in '73 and two years later started my own business. Sold the business in '96 for a tidy sum that placed my family on easy street for the rest of our lives.

Today, the lovely woman I married in '78 and I continue to consume about a half ounce of marijuana a month.

Except for our marijuana consumption, we've played by the rules throughout our entire lives.

I think it's time for the American government to allow me and other free people to decide for ourselves if marijuana is harmful or not. I can tell you from years of experience in using the plant, the only people I've seen harmed by marijuana are the people who were arrested and stigmatized as drug users. A stigmatization placed upon them, for the most part, by people who use the alcohol drug.

Marijuana should be legalized for adult consumption.

Marijuana is a naturally occuring substance that has medical usage going back thousands of years in history and is far safer than many pharmacutical CHEMICALS. Marijuana prohibition like alcohol prohibition fuels crime and violence. Legalize Marijuana NOW !!! Stop harrassing the taxpayers.
