For the same reason alcohol was legalized after the prohibition. It was a stupid law. made by stupid people, fore the wrong reasons, that needed to be repealed.

It is illegal now due to the huge amounts of money being made, by people such as law makers. i.e. John W. Brown, former Governor of Kentucky.
It's like the people who supported the bootleggers in the mountains states. They are working to keep the counties dry, due to the amount of money being made.
Five years ago I witnessed a deputy handle a large container of Marijuana seeds. As he uncapped the lip exposing the contents, his remark was "I can make any body a drug dealer I want"
If you recall Joesph Kennedy's money was made from the illegal importation of liquor

Marijuana has been proven to have medical benefits. It would be better to legalize it, and tax it (needed revenue). It would also free up jails for the real criminals...oh, wait, most of them are elected officials!

current drug laws are stressing our jails, putting non violent, hardworking people in jail. There are many medicinal values in marijuana. Plain and simple... it's all about politics and nothing more. Remember prohibition?!

yes, it should be legal. it never killed anyone. has more uses than any other plant. great for relaxing. how many people get in fights, drive fast, or comment any crimes when smoking marijuana, unlike alcohol.

weed is a lot safer to use than alcohol, yet we legalized alcohol and nicoteen. also weed does not promote burglary just to get it like the hard drugs do.

I feel alcohol causes a lot more severe problems and kills people. Haven't seen those types of problems with marijuana.

hemp makes the strongest of rope and clothing. Marijuana also has amazing health benefits for the sick. Also legalization would add millions in tax dollars and put the dealers out of business.

Hemp makes the strongest rope and clothing that will last. It mellows people out, if marijuana is illegal- liquor should be too- its much worse for you and causes violence. The tax dollars would add millions to our economy and put the dealers out of business and could be regulated, rather than distrubuted to our youth by anyone putting anything in it.
