it is a harmless plant,zero toxicity!nobody has ever died from the use of it.....Theoretically you would have to smoke a joint the size of a telephone pole in under 20 minutes,and before you go to bashing what I have written,do some research.

Damn Madness, where did you get that kind of marijuana from? Marijuana is a downer, unless you have some that is laced, and if that is the case, I'd be whooping the persons ass that gave it to you. If someone is passing around pot that is laced, then they should at least tell you and let you make the choice if you still want it or not.

The tobacco farmers are starving. Hemp makes PAPER, Trees make paper. Trees take 16 years to grow to pulpwood (paper) size, Hemp has two growing seasons a year to make pulp (paper). Hemp seeds make an oil that burns just fine in a diesel engine. Tobacco farmers want to grow hemp. US won't let them. Is this fair? Another thing about Pot, the pot that will get you high is an unfertilized female plant. It keeps pumping resin into its buds trying to catch a piece of pollen to fertilize it's self to make seeds. The resin is what contains THC (THC is what gets you high). Pot growers cut all of the male plants to keep this from happening, makes better smoking pot. Now if you let the tobacco farmer grow hemp the air will be full of pollen hence all of your smoking pot fields would get pollinated and then become HEMP not worth a shit to smoke. This would wipe out the growers that grow smoking pot. Who do you think this would hurt? LEO, thatís who. No farms to confiscate, no fines to levy, no one to put in prison, think about it.

The first is the link to the myths of marijuana for medical use

http://www.420magazine.com/forums/medical-mar...

this is a list of ailments and disorders it treats

http://www.420magazine.com/forums/medical-mar...

and this is the link on leukemia

http://www.420magazine.com/forums/medical-mar...

this next is just on cancer but it's neat

"There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US,
and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers.
Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage.
This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations
with Negroes, entertainers and any others."

by:

Harry J. Anslinger
(1892-1975) Assistant Prohibition Commissioner in the Bureau of Prohibition, first Commissioner of the Treasury Department's Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN)(1930-1962, 32 years), US Representative to the United Nations Narcotics Commission
Source:

testimony to US Congress supporting Marihuana Tax Act, 1937.. this is the ignorance that was used to justify prohibition of hemp/marijuana.. Harry also owned interest in many industries such as timber,clothing,paper,fuel.. etc.. that hemp was holding back..
Hemp/cannabis has so many far reaching uses, medicinal,industrial personal... it hasn't the negative and damaging effects that alcohol or tobacco do.. it does not kill on a daily basis such as alcohol,tobacco,pharmaceutical medications,meth,heroin,and cocaine do. There are zero deaths linked to marijuana.

* Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.
o Ronald Reagan, U.S. President (1980-1988)

* Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marihuana in private for personal use... Therefore, I support legislation amending Federal law to eliminate all Federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce of marihuana.
o Jimmy Carter, U.S. President in a message to the U.S. Congress (1977)

and lastly this quote...* Make the most of the Indian hemp seed, and sow it everywhere!
o George Washington in a note to his gardener at Mount Vernon (1794), The Writings of George Washington, Volume 33, page 270 (Library of Congress)
o Washington also recorded his concern that the male and female plants be seperated:

May 12-13 1765: Sowed Hemp at Muddy hole by Swamp.
August 7, 1765:óbegan to seperate (sic) the Male from the Female Hemp at Do órather too late.

Some assert his interest in separating the male and female plants is an indication that he may have used Indian hemp medicinally to treat his chronic tooth aches. Others note that fiber of the male and female hemp plants have a different optimum harvest times.

Our Country was built on hemp Our forefathers used it not only industrially and medically but also for relaxation. An adult should be given the option to choose marijuana as a treatment or as a form of relaxation in their own home. Marijuana should be a choice not a felony!!

Trillions are spent on Marijuana eradication and it' completely wasted. Legalizing it would give the States money to use on eradicating meth and other harmful drugs from Our communities. The revenue that would come in would bring each State out of debt. You are absolutely right on the industrial sense that hemp makes.

I suffer from cronic pain as well. I also have degenerative joint disease. I am in constant pain 24/7. I take the pills docs give me and it doesn't do much good. I smoke some weed thru the day and I don't need the pills at all. I'm able to function just fine and there isn't any "walking around in a stupor" unless it's really good stuff. Then I try to smoke less of it. Weed is the best pain killer I have found.
