If they legalize it they will tax, and regulate it.

I believe that marijuana can help people. cigarettes and alcohol kill people everyday and they are legal. There is not one marijuana related death and still it is put up there with hard drugs like heroin and cocaine, Ridiculous

i choose marijuana for treatment of depression rather than benzos. I have received multiple upms and even a dwi reduced from a duai(WHAT?) totaling around 10g in fines. Overpaying for crap medicine never knowing what you're getting, PLEASE PLEASE tax the hell out of me.

1. Its an herb, not a drug, therefore should not be scheduled or otherwise.
2. It has PROVEN and verified (national and international journal publications) medical applications that work without side effects other than drowsiness, thus merely avoid operating machinery.
3. It is hundreds of dollars cheaper than conventional drugs and does not cause harm to the individual or society as most users some or vaporize within their home, or in outdoor, obscure places, never with intent to harm other beings (no cases reported of marijuana deaths in the history of recorded legal or medial stature).
4. It has been PROVEN and verified that marijuana, along with other hard drugs, is NOT a gateway drug, that this notion is false science, and that the reason why some turn to harder substances is do to their ENVIRONMENT. ie, society, living spaces. Its our government's fault that they can't handle the poverty and despotism that leads to abusers.
5. The carcinogenic ash left over from marijuana smoke does not cause cancer (verified via medical study) is much LESS harmful than that of tobacco. Those who use vaporizers forego this risk.
