When alcohol becomes illegal, I'll vote to banish marijuana. Marijuana is NOT harmful. One won't get cancer consuming it, ones liver and kidney functions don't cease consuming it, the political bias against it is why it is illegal (damn hippies). I have NEVER heard or read anything claiming TCH was the sole chemical in the system of a person accused of vehicular manslaughter, child abuse, domestic violence or any other violent act for that matter. Allow the funds being used to fight a harmless "drug" to be used to fund worthy causes: the fight against meth and opiates, teen pregnancy, gang violence, illegal immigration, lazy people abusing the welfare system, etc.

Marijuana Quotes:

“Marihuana is responsible for the raping of white women by crazed negroes.”
—Hearst Newspapers Nationwide-1930

“Marihuana influenced negroes to look at white people in the eye, step on white men’s shadows, and look at a white woman twice.”
—Hearst Newspapers-1935

"After two puffs on a marijuana cigarette, I was turned into a bat."
-Marijuana Tax Act expert witness pharmacologist Dr James Munch-1937

“Marihuana is the most violent drug in the history of mankind.”
-Henry Anslinger, the father of the War on Drugs-1937

“If the hideous monster of Frankenstein came face to face with marihuana, he would drop dead of fright.”
—Anslinger, FBN, quoted in Hearst newspaper-1938

“Negro entertainers with their jazz and swing music are declared an outgrowth of marihuana use which possesses white women to tap their feet.”
—statements to Congress by Anslinger, FBN-1940

"Marijuana is more harmful than habit-forming opium, inducing fits of temporary insanity.”
—Newsweek, 1-15-45

“Marihuana leads to pacifism and Communist brainwashing.”
—Anslinger, before Congress-1948

“Marijuana use makes you sterile.”
—Reagan Administration-1985

“Marijuana leads to homosexuality, the breakdown of the immune system, and therefore to AIDS.”
-- Carlton Turner. White House Drug Czar under Ronald Reagan-1986

This is the basis of our current drug policy. If it wasn't so sad, it would be humorous.
