This was created by GOD for a reason.The Goverment lets people get over the counter drugs everyday that are man made that get you addicted to no end . Pot is not like that ,we dont have people out killing other people over pot. Pot is even better than cigs for .If I am not mistaken Harvard U claims they found out the THC helps fight cancer. I also know i would rather be aruond a bunch pot heads than a room full of drunks.

If not legalize, publicly explain why Marijuana is illegal and alcohol is legal. I don't want to pay taxes for my smoke. I just want it decriminalized. You can although drink your self to death and kill someone while driving drunk and become horribly addicted and some alcoholics will drink things like mouthwash if that's all they have, tasty. Alcohol kills and pot, well, pot doesn't.

There is mandatory sentencing for marijuana but not for murder, rape or child molesters? Really?

I don't see how alcohol is legal and Marijuana isn't. We waste so much money arresting people for possession of Marijuana. Why don't we use that time and money for meth labs or cocaine?

There is no proof that marijuana is harmful (only if in excess like everything else). where cigarettes & alcohol are legal they're more harmful & highly addictive, however more profitable.

we trust the general public with alcohol and yet we deny marijuana. who's the troublemaker in any event be it, ball game, bar, party? it's the drunk guy. when was the last time you heard of a "stoned driving" accident? sure, the late night line at taco bell might be slightly longer, but overall, legalization could be a great benefit. economically and socially. think about the number of people out there floating around on zoloft or paxil already. we're mostly on drugs as it is.

Pot is not worse than alcohol or many of the presciption drugs people are abusing. My son died from pain killers the teenagers were abusing when he quit smoking pot to get in the Navy after graduating. His recruter told him he can't smoke pot but he can drink alcohol. I wish now all he was doing is smoking pot and eating cookies and pizza all evening. My kids have attended too many funerals of teens or young adults using alcohol & driving or going swimming while drunk or overdosing on strong pain pills. Make alcohol illegal and pot legal and see how the death rate reduces in the younger crowd.

Marijuana is all natural, non addictive, and can have healing qualities.

The US government controls to much of our life. IF people want to use Marijuana they should have the freedom to do so
