It heals and gives insight to parts of life you never knew existed. You have full control of yourself while you're under it's influence, everything just seems better to you. For me personally, it has helped tremendously with coping with my depression and anxiety. It is very expensive but if the government legalizes it, it won't be anymore. And the tax revenue just may aide in a full turn-around of this nation's debt. Almost everyone in the world has been exposed to this therapeutic/recreational drug. It's is 100% organic and poses no health risks to the user. Why alcohol is legal and cannabis isn't.. Will keep me stumped me till time's end.

Yeah fkng right. Smoking is a peaceful, non-addictive, therapeutic/recreational drug. It makes you feel good and you're not hurting anyone. Having sex with children is hurtful. Drinking and driving is reckless and dangerous. Think before you make a statement.

The Michael Jackson comment was AWESOME! May that sick f#$%ing pervert burn in Hell for what he did to those kids. Hopefully the parents who whored their kids to him will burn in a lake of fire for all eternity too. Sick pedophile Michael Jackson.

1) A persons consciousness is theirs alone and it is an infringement of their basic rights to tell them what they are allowed to do with it.
2) The entire War in Drugs does nothing to circumvent the negative impact drugs have on society. It actually compounds them.
3) Making drugs illegal creates a wealthy violent criminal class. This wealth gives the bad people more power over the rest of society.
4) The war on drugs causes production to move to other countries which in turn causes all money from drug profits to flow outside the United States.
5)The war on drugs is a complete waste of tax payer money.
6) The war on drugs creates an unregulated industry with no quality standards cause drugs to less pure and possibly contaminated with poisonous substances worsening the negative effects on users.
There are numerous other reasons but I've made my point.

I thought if it was up to whites drugs would be legal???? So why would a white make them illegal? There is a fundamental flaw in logic here. If being white automatically means that you want drugs to be legal as a racial trait then how could a white and his white underlings make drugs illegal. ERROR! ERROR! ERROR! DOES NOT COMPUTE!

They were just trying to get the votes of the liberals.
AHHH yes because so many liberals were clamoring for drug prohibition. Isn't that what Woodstock was all about. Getting rid of drugs. I think Abbey Hoffman was giving anti-marijuana speeches at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago wasn't he?
