Is it any wonder that all of these well-known historical figures never amounted to anything.

Marijuana was made illegal in the first place because it attracted immigrants and caused places like California to become crowded with Mexican and Central American marijuana dealers. Congress did not like this growth in the south and west and the government paid for anti-marijuana campaigns and ads that attempted to make people believe that marijuana melts the skin and so forth. Tests by the government, however, proved that marijuana was not nearly as bad as they claimed--so they covered up the results.

Legalizing marijuana might end this economic recession with the billions of dollars it could reel in. Marijuana is more important to this country than tobacco.

Agreed, once again. Make it legal, and then maybe make loads more money on it, to stop the usage of the really dangerous drugs. Either that, or we stop being hipocritical about the damages of drugs and illegalise cigarettes, and maybe even alcohol.

What`s that? Can`t the politicians take that? Oh, no, right, that`s because they are smokers and some drinkers.

tuxman4: Your first question might be a product of misleading do to the anti-marijuana propaganda of the school systems.
Secondly, it could be a new, more potent, or more strong and durable strain of marijuana for making better clothes, paper, ect.

Wait, I thought Jamestown settlers were forced to grow TOBACCO... Also, if they were forced to grow weed, why did the sultan of Turkey later give the U.S. a gift of weed?

Wait, wait, wait. Used as a truth serum? I don`t get the logic behind that.

Interrogator: "What do they know?! Tell us!!"
Suspect: "They... they know... what? Sorry, there`s.. hehe... your face has HOLES in it... hehehe..."

It would obviously work SO WELL.

So many good points towards weed, personally I have trouble coping with stress brought on by anxiety attacks. Hand me a doobie, and you can send me anywhere. What stress? This CAN be used to treat minor mental disorders, as well as physical discomfort as we have obviously discovered. Any doctor who tells you otherwise is spewing garbage. The truth is that these "conspiracy theories" regarding why marijuana is illegal are basically true. They DID make it illegal because it was a direct competitor with heavy cash crops like cotton. The war on drugs is a failure, and needs to be completely rethought. Don`t let your government get away with this garbage, tell your senator/MP/governor whatever you have, that marijuana should be legalized and regulated to ensure safe levels of potency to be used for proper treatment of ailments.

Nice one, Davymid :D

I live in holland too, and I`m still surprised it hasn`t been banned yet. Holland is sometimes called a country of freedom, because soft drugs are legal, but there are so many other things that shouldn`t have been banned that have been. Makes me kind of sad :(

I do smoke and by rough count its 26 Lbs and counting, (>1g/day*33 years), It does have some antimotivational aspects with long term use. and its awfully hard on the lungs. But other than that its a superior antidepressant. Its crazy not to be taxing this resource.

I live in Holland, where it`s been decriminalized for years. And hey, we seem to be doing alright!

Compared to the US (per capita), we have 50% of America`s marijuana usage, <30% heroin usage, <15% incarceration rate, <60% spending on the criminal justice system, and <30% the homicide rate...

Click here for some interesting comparative facts!

Well, it seems like most of us would want it legalized. The best idea to get this ball rolling is to email your state and federal senators. Tell them you want it legalized and provide the facts...they`ll listen.

Everything you wanted to know about weed

I can give you the EXACT reason why it`s banned!

Political contributions from corporations that profit from marijuana being illegal (pharmaceuticals, alcohol, etc.)

Thats it. It`s the main reason it`s still banned!

Oh and for the record, all the mental health BS propaganda thats slung around is funded by pharmaceutical firms who`s obvious intrests are keeping the substance banned.

Do I smoke weed..nope. I`ve had it 3 times my whole life and I simply dont like it..but I see no reason why those who enjoy it shouldnt. After all, I wouldnt want anyone taking my beer away from me.

Pot was made illegal originally because hemp directly competed with cotton. Cotton lobbyists got congress to make it illegal. It`s still illegal these days because too many important, well-placed people make a ton of money off of it.

I was an angry stoner just 4 days ago when I didn`t have enough change for another hamburger lol.

But ye anyone that has ever smoked will probably agree that alcohol is worse than weed, if for nothing else your mouth doesn`t taste like an ashtray the day after :)

I don`t smoke but my health teacher from high school once asked us: "What`s worse; having your husband/dad come home from a night of drinking and have him get violent? Or; have your husband/dad come back stoned and have the pantry empty?" I think weed is a lot safer for the victims than alcohol is. I`ve never heard of an angry stoner, just an angry drunk.

Why don`t we just make the really toxic stuff illegal (meth, heroin, etc.) and legalize/tax everything else.

Glad I was born in belgium lol. I really don`t understand some of america`s laws. Guns = good; alcohol & weed = baaaad? )-| As some people here have already stated, legalizing cannabis might be a nice way to alleviate the effects of the economic crisis. People want weed, government wants money, I`d call that a win-win, no? :)

Legalisation is a very touchy topic, the main reason the government will not allow for it to be legal is it can not be taxed, as it can be home-grown. I for one have smoked and enjoyed it, yet I have no addiction or dependence, I think this factor varies alot from person to person.

Yeah, I have to agree the war on drugs is sucking up a lot of money. Granted, meth labs create a ton of toxic substances and hard drugs are hell on parts of society, but we`re spending millions keeping people in jail who just have cannabis offenses. Plus, people are going to smoke it anyway.

Didn`t hemp used to be use for rope and canvas? The Laughing Cavalier was painted on hemp. Keep it in mind for some of the historical stuff.

Yeah, but cannabis really isn`t that bad all in all.

i agree with legalisation too.
everyone knows that it`s no more harmful than smoking or drinking. perhaps less harmful, i`m no scientist.

i hope it`s legalized at some point soon.

Long live marijuana... if it`s not legal within the next 5 years (or at least decriminalized), I`m getting the hell out of the U.S... or at the very least moving to California, I hear its not hard to get a prescription for it over there? Too many people I know are getting in trouble because of it, and its not even "bad"... it`s way better for you than alcohol and cigarettes anyway. It grows in the ground, its just a plant, it was here growing before we were, probably. The whole drug war is stupid, and clearly isn`t working.

The biggest problem with legalizing marijuana is the levels of THC in the blood do not match the effects. If there is a high level of THC in the blood it does not mean that the person is effected yet, which is not the case with alcohol. This would create a nightmare for law enforcement as if someone was driving and had THC in their system, it cannot be determined if they were under the effects of the THC or not.

I don`t smoke it, but I`ve never seen problems with legalization of marijuana. Added to that, the $36 billion from crops would be a nice boost to the economy. In the long run, how is it much more than alcohol? Just have it regulated like alcohol... be able to buy it at 18 or 21 depending, make it illegal to drive while high, etc.
