The use of marijuana only acts as a introduction to more dangerous drugs. The other problem is that it is still a Federally controlled substance. We will end up with fewer kids that are able to enter the Armed Forces. Jobs are hard to come by with no work history. We all know of dealers that keep running free. As if they are above the law. Thank a Vet, For being able to disagree with me.

I've smoked pot for 48 years now. spent 7 years in the army, retired as an electrician/electronic tech in the auto industry(robotics) never busted,had cancer twice, got my card twice.RAISED 3 KIDS. the last 3 presidents smoked pot.and so far in this forum i've found opponents to pot ignore the obvious, repeatING 70+ years of government bigoted lies. RACISM started it all.((reefer madness and the evil weed)) hyperbole has been past down for generations. if you visit other citys on this topic you will find that most(and i say most) opponents are absolute bigots. when you disagree with them and and lead them web sites to show that their wrong, Well you know the rest.

Marijuana has been used since MAN can remember. It is used in many different ways for variable conditions. Do the research on crime rate and fatalities caused from people using marijuana. Remember numbers are EXACT :-)

one big problem is that we have no idea how many people have died as a result of smoking marijuana. Lung Cancer, motor vehicle accidents other accidents in general while high on Marijuana . I also wonder about the long term effects in regards to birth defects . One other concern I have is how marijuana seems to effect the motivation of many I know that use it .
