Do you think weed should be illegal I mean it is just a plant right
I agree with almost all the comments posted on here
These are some of the comments I have copied from a forum
-pharmaceuticals are known to kill more people than illegal drugs
-marijuana is the number 1 cash crop in the world it serves as a natural medicine and has many other uses thats why they prohibited it so big companies can make more profit thanks to "bad journalism"
-can also help aids patients, aids diminishes appetite have them smoke a joint and they regain their appetite counteracting the illness
-no one can die from smoking cannabis and has been no known deaths compared to everything else including alcohol, tobacco, etc..
I myself have asthma and smoking opens up my airways making it easier to breathe with no side effects when medically legalized in my state I look foward to becoming a patient for prescription marijuana. 12 states have already legalized it along with other countries in the world and more following my job is to educate people that are not aware of the plants uses
-I did most of my research through websites, books, magazines, and the news norml.org high times magazine etc..
-God bless the whole crop!
-all the better reason for the government to legalize.. couple reasons why it should be legalized: -will be removed from black market and stop empowering gang members -medical reasons -would be sold like alcohol, remember alcohol was once prohibited too (in stores away from children, have to be 21+) -would be a law that you cant drive while intoxicated on weed -prison population would lower (prisons are overcrowding with nonviolent offenders) -keep patients from being convicted -would provide millions of jobs for people -would make us an independent country (fuel, etc.., debt free america)
people with an addiction (including hard drugs) shouldnt be thrown in jail, they need help theres more people in jail with mental illnesses than there are in mental institutions
the list goes on
the truth must be exposed, theyre dirty work must stop!
-Of course we can do something about it, we all just need to unite screw the federal government remember slavery? if no one stood up im pretty sure it would still be going on people were tortured, beaten, killed and thrown in jail but that didnt stop them standing up for their rights eventually slavery was abolished same with alcohol prohibition eventually became re-legalized
get up stand up!

Marijuana can be both emotionally and mentally addictive. Once an individual becomes addicted to marijuana it develops into part of who they believe themselves to be. Avoiding their friends who do not use, the addict will gravitate to others that do. Marijuana is a topic that is always on their mind, whether it be thinking about the next time they will be able to get high or where their going to get their next sack. When someone is addicted to marijuana eventually their friends and the people close to them only know how they act when their stoned because they no longer do anything without first smoking. Their constant abuse is due to the misconception that marijuana is what they need to solve their problems. Sometimes addicts will take their stash with them wherever they go, just in case an opportunity arises and they are able to take a couple hits. They may even go through several dealers in order to make sure they always have a constant supply of marijuana - For assistance Call 1-800-405-8409: http://WWW.marijuanaaddiction.info/
I agree with lex icon. Also, most people that do smoke weed don't get totally agressive and start fights with radom people like drunk people do. I work the overnight shift at my job and as a result see a lot of people that are totally wrecked on alcohol, and not all but a lot of them are extremely agressive, and looking for a fight with almost anyone. Most people that I see that have smoken weed are very calm and at just want to get something to eat because they have the munchies. I personally think that it should not be illegal to smoke weed as long as it is done in a responsible manner.
In my thoughts--- Weed should be legal. The effects of pot won't harm you mentally while working or driving. Alchohol is a diferent story. Other narcotics should be illegal because it can harm you physically and mentally such as crystal meth etc. There's nothing wrong with growing it in your own home.
From what I've seen research-wise, it's less harmful than alcohol. I personally don't touch it, but if other people want to, it's their choice. I reckon it should at the very least be decriminalised.
No I dont think it should be because it should be our choice. Go potheads
