I don't smoke pot, or at least haven't in years, but I would rather be around someone that has smoked pot than someone drunk.

Well,it will be legalized everywhere within the next ten years.On November 20th California will vote on legalizing it.and if passed through it won't be long till other states follow.
Anyways,weed isn't bad for you.There are many misconceptions, but if you are smart and responsible there's nothing wrong with it.

I never believed the government had the constitutional authority to make it illegal. For me, it's always been legal. Citizen's have a duty to defy unpopular or unconstitutional laws.

I don't believe the government has the constitutional authority to ban a plant. For me marijuana has always been legal. Citizens have an obligation to oppose unjust law, even if it's popular. If we don't, it will be just a matter of time before we live in tyranny.

i absolutely support the legalization of it. it is less harmful than tobacco or alcohol. it is a plant just like anything else that grows from the earth and if used in moderation causes a lot less harm to the body than refined sugar!

You might want to look to see if you opinion is correct. Smoking one joint is like smoking one pack of cigarettes as far as tar goes and thats pretty bad.

I guarantee your statement is 100% incorrect. Just do a little research (and I do mean a little) and you'll find the truth. This is common knowledge--urban legends never die.

Marijuana does have tar in it.. However, it is less than tobacco.

By gov't standards , pot is full of tar(resin). To say that 1 joint is equal to a whole pack of winstons, however, is silly. And, besides that the plain jane good green don't take anywhere near a whole joint to lay me out! So I ain't worried about it.
