Believe it or not, cannabis has many medicinal properties and uses. Alcohol on the other hand not so much. Alcohol...legal....why?
Report as
It isn't bad for you, there are many benefits to cannabis.

Because it's none of your damn business what people do in the privacy of their own homes!

Legalize it. My mother smoked it in the 80's for breast Ca to increase her appetite. It improved her mood and appetite. She did pass away, but it was medicinal for her and gave her a few laughs while going through hell. She obtained it legally by prescription in joint form in a med bottle from her oncologist. This is nothing new. It does not cause lung cancer. Safer than alcohol, but should not be used if driving or working. And only with ID and 21 yrs old. We could free up some jailed people, help unclog the court system and save states millions of bucks. Crime would also decrease. Just arrest if driving under influence. The work issue would be a challenge though. Not all of this is good, but it's just my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

The only thing is that people drive really well when they're high for the most part it would be hard to catch people driving under the influence but hey if they aren't hurting anybody, who cares

Much of it is homegrown. Simple seeds that grow in soil. Since it currently is generally illegal, many people grow it themselves. However, in states where medical is used, there are dispensaries who grow and distribute marijuana to those with medical cards. And I believe it should be legal because it is no worse than alcohol or tobacco which are both illegal and have medicinal properties that could benefit anyone. It also reduces stress and most people who use it are generally happy individuals as it relaxes the mind and body and also heightens many of your senses, making you aware of things you would never notice. Also, keeping it illegal will make it impossible to end the drug wars that take so many innocent lives because people are so desperate for it. If you made chocolate illegal, in 50 years many people would view chocolate as a bad thing simply because it's illegal and seems wrong, however we all know chocolate is harmless. Same with marijuana.

It used to be legal. As time goes on, more and more drugs (and everything else) become illegal. I don't expect it to be legalized any time soon.

Well if you Legalize it it will be More Expensive Because they will have to TAX it. So think about it

This might not be a bad thing. Those taxes could pay for services we may actually need. Also, those with a psychological addiction to THC would be less inclined to use if it were more expensive. Those selling for medical purposes alone could receive government subsidies to medical suppliers so as to reduce the price for patients.

All I do is sit on my boyfriends lap giggling at him, eat some ramen, and fall asleep. It's incredibly boring. I prefer Molly.
Report as
That's because you're a boring person. It's boring because you don't do anything. Go for a bike ride, go for a walk, go chill with friends and you'll have a great time. Molly is also amazing.

Some guys were driving while high and pulled over right next to my little sisters. What do you think would have happened if they hadn't ran?
Report as
Nevermind, you're talking specifically about marijuana. I don't know what drug those guys were high on so forget I said anything.

Many people misunderstand the substance. It's a completely natural herb. It has many, many valuable medicinal properties and is better for you than drinking or smoking tobacco. But it would be more expensive. And it's already expensive enough. Move to a state with medical, get a card, enjoy.

Was it a proposed bill of rights to be passed in 2012? Why should it be then?

It should be up for a vote. I think it's a great idea. Go and buy it like alcohol. The penalties would be the same if driving or working under the influence. Let's unclog the courts, get people out jail for smoking a little weed and decrease crime. Also states would pick up tax revenue. It's only an herb with medicinal properties. Emotionally and pain related issues. Should be 21 with photo ID

Wait, I live in California, and it's legal to purchase as a medicinal drug from certain shops.
1. It's legal as a drug. Of course it's a drug. If it was just a food, it would be regulated by FDA, but it is psychoactive so it will always be regulated by FDA and enforced by DEA. One can make a case it should be like tobacco, in which case ATF would be in the mix also.
2. It will never, ever, be so legal that it can be bought like a can of peas. Or so legal that it can be legally manufactured without oversight. This is the price that psychoactive drugs pay.

Ah i get your opinion,? but no one who isn't a liar can say that the effects of marijuana are positive. Sure some will use it in limit and safely, but it is in fact a gateway drug, luring people into experimenting with other, more harmful drugs such as heroine and cocaine. I stand firm in my belief that it should be outlawed. Allowing marijuana would just be deleterious to the entire society if not immediately, but in the long run.

I can personally say I know 50+ people who are regular users of marijuana, and none of them use any other drugs other than shrooms which aren't harmful to the body just dangerous in certain settings, and salvia, which lasts ten minutes an also isn't harmful.
Report as
As I said before, people aren't the same, and some don't have the responsibility to use the drug safely. It's better to keep it this way. Not like it's impossible to get for people who want it bad.
