The government needs to do a better job at convincing the American voters if they want to continue on with this failed prohibition of marijuana. They claim that the 'plant' is dangerous and deadly, yet they can't provide any proof or credible evidence to back these claims up.

If marijuana was legal a lot less people would do other drugs especially prescription pills. But everyone's doing that now because its easier to get.

It is one of the natural herbs that God created, not man, not a self seeking drug company that stands to make billions from it. And only to pull it from the shelves becauses it killing people, Really, it is a no brainer, if you could get the baby boomers to talk, they have never quit smoking, They are and have been productive members of society, let people speak honestly, if you haven't smoked it you don't know its affect, its not a drug. It has healing benefits, for Fibromyalgia, depression,nausea,etc. If you were really concerned you would pull the drugs off the shelves, and use it. If not for the people, then at least for this country, as a whole. We spend billions on fighting it, while the drug companies make millions killing us. All things should be done in moderatiom, weed has its side effects, if you smoke to much you will eat, and fall asleep. You drive slower and way more cautious. It definitely cause you to think, and relax. I think that it is great that we as a country have begin to look at what is best for us as a whole, and to use more of what God has given us. Thank you.

Thank u! A lot of people think its a drug just bc of wut they were told about it 5th grade d.a.r.e. and think that it does sumthin serious. Oh it kills ur brain cells, its a gateway drug blah blah blah. The gate way drugs are all the perscription pills doctors are shoving out and its a huge problem in richmond. I remember yrs ago people was smoking n drinkin, thats normal, richmond was a decent place to live. Then they start doin tabs n perc 5s n 10s. Then everyones hooked on 30s n even more.... Heroine bc its cheaper than 3s. Those are the gateway drugs bc after u do them so many times u need a higher and higher dose.
I smoke 6 blunts a day, work a full time job and live a very healthy and productive life.
The only issue i have with weed is that with most people it makes them lazy n unproductive.
But if everyone smoked more weed....do u all know how that wud help the economy? Not just farmers and taxes. Weed causes u to think about things u normally dont normally think about. People come up with the best ideas when theyre high. And even better, there wud be much less violence and anger, weed brings people together.

They should legalize it, but at the same time, theres some things the law shud just stay out of lol. Legalize it, let us grow it, sell it, smoke it as we wish and not have it regulated. Its putting more money in the peoples pockets. Someone needs to stand up n tell the "man" this: its not the government that needs more money, its the people. And the government is not in debt bc of the people, the people are in debt bc of the government. And why its still so illegal is bc the government doesnt want people doing anything of the sort unless theyre reaping the benefits and taxing us for it n theyr still not sure exactly wut the best way is to do that yet.

I've smoked it for 20 years and it hasn't led me to do anything else. I've kept a steady job, bought a house and lived a normal life. I don't do drugs and never will. So you are wrong! You have no idea what you're talking about.

Outstanding! I too enjoy the herb. I smoked my first in 1972, and have smoked since then until the last bit I had, ten minutes ago.

I too have had a very successful life. My kids are all grown, and grand kids are doing great. I have owned many houses and acres of land.

I have also never done dope. Marijuana has not even tried to lead me to another drug. Who knows, just raised better maybe.

Anyway, they say I have a patient so I must go, but remember, using Marijuana is not harmful, does not lead to dope use, and is not addicting like alcohol.

Good day.

I think it would take care of the pill problem here. The government can tax it, so it would help the state with the debt problem.people don't smoke marijuana and get violent, like alcohol and its legal.

I would rather self-medicate myself using an "illegal" plant, than use prescription pills. Alcohol is so much worse for you that marijuana.
I agree to an extent. If you don't have to mix up a bunch of chemicals (coke, heroin, meth, etc.) with it to make it then it should be legal. Just grow it. Dry it. Smoke it.

Never heard of a stoner getting in fights, beating their wives or kids, or running their cars into a bus full of children.
But all that and more had been caused by alcohol. Yet it's still legal?

Wake up america.

Gvt makes more money from it being illegal than to tax it legally. If it were legal how many people are going to buy it legally (taxed like tobacco) when they can grow it themselves? You don't want that taxed regulated stuff up want the free mj grown ur way

People can grown tobacco for themselves but they don't. It is just more convenient to buy it. Same way people would buy marijuana as opposed to growing it. More convenient to walk into a store than going through the trouble of growing it.
