Those who presently use marijuana know and are willing to break the law. With this, they should be punished. That said, it won't happen because we are a society of entitlement and believe we should be able to do what we want, when we want to, no matter who it effects. Likewise, despite what some say, a large percentage of those who voluntarily use marijuana go on to experiment with harder drugs.

Marijuana is a natural product. G-d gave us every herb bearing seed for our use. It is no different than using tobacco or fermenting grain for alcoholic beverages. I'd rather see Marijuana legalized and regulated the way alcohol and tobacco are. The money used to outlaw Marijuana could be used to fight serious and dangerous drugs like meth, crack, cocaine, and heroin.

The laws against marijuana growth and use are wrong. G-d gave us ever herb bearing seed for our use. I'd rather see marijuana legalized and regulated the way alcohol and tobacco are. The money used to outlaw marijuana could be diverted to fight serious and dangerous drugs like meth, crack, cocaine, and heroin. Instead, we make criminals out of casual marijuana users and waste our money on a problem that doesn't exist.

Regardless of our own preferences, right now, marijuana is illegal and people freely and willingly break the law to use it. Because of that we should legalize it? Cyanide is a natural product and, in small doses good for you, so lets legalize for the same reason. Likewise, Murder. Maybe we should legalize it and require people to get a "Murder License." If the murderer uses cyanide we could get two for one. We could make a mint. Maybe put all this money into the new Health Care System and help keep the costs down.

Kidding aside, I don't advocate the use or health problems of tobacco or alcohol as they were legalized long before I had any say. I have a say now. Legal or illegal, the toxins in marijuana are far more dangerous that alcohol or tobacco and will cause a greater burden on our health care system which, whether you want to admit it or not, are already going to cost us more than any regulation you could place on the production and sale of weed. Just because some people like it, doesn't mean the rest of us have to allow it (and ultimately pay for it).

God put alot of things on this earth but does not mean they need to be abused by humans. Like many things people abuse things so they have to be made illegal. If people were responsible for themselves there would not be any issues with drugs. They would be used for medicimal purposes and all would be good. Instead people get drunk and drive and kill other people. People get high and do harm to other peoples property.etc. You have to put rules for things for the stupid things people do. Just read the caution print on lables. Do they really need to say some of the things they do. Yes, because some idiot did that and got hurt. Making Marijuana legal will probably cause alot of issues. I just hate seeing people destroy their lives for a high. Be high on life. Help someone in need. It really feels good.
