    I love marijuana, but sadly the world cannot just sit down and smoke a joint in peace. It`s really just like having a beer, but you`re more relaxed and less stressed out.

    1937: This clip doesn`t mention that cannabis was used to make the schoolbooks and maps and lots of other things in the old days. It was banned because Congress was lobbied by Hearst, the paper mogul, who owned vast acreage of timberlands, and stood to make millions of dollars if paper was made only from wood. Go to http://www.illuminati-news.com/marijuana... for more.

    Canabis. I don`t hate it because it`s illegal, or because I was raised that way, I hate it because so many of my friends are failtards because of it, I remember we were all looking for rooms on craigslist and they all giggled "make sure it`s 420 friendly" it`s really the only thing they ever think about, and that`s just ridiculous.

    i know a hell of alot of people who smoke marijuana, infact most of the school i went to had tried marijuana by the time they had left, my 2 best friends smoke weed.. one of them is a pothead the other smokes it every so often (but his parents pass a joint around all the time) i myself have found most of the new strains to strong and that they just completely drat me instead of chilling me out so i dont smoke as much anymore

    And how is something that isn`t possible to OD on or get addicted to (physically) illegal, but alcohol is legal??? Because we live in a very very corrupt world, people... It`s all about the money. Why do you think the US banned it in the first place? Because everyone could make a living off of it. (yeah, and people lobbied for it to be illegal, but that`s kinda my point.) Now that they (the scary US government) have policed the world they are ever so little starting to make it legal again in controlled form that the government can make money from. They did it... They fu<kin did it... *cries*

    And you/we all fell for it... We are bred to be docile and more docile we will become. Soon enough you don`t even have to decide what clothes to wear. Big Brother will do that for you. Let`s have all in a comforting gray so we can see who sticks out from the crowd. You may call me a wacko now, but remember that George Orwell pic that was posted yesterday? Yeah...

    Honestly, I don`t like how people say "make Mary Jane legal! Yea, moar weedz!" just because they want to get high >:(

    There`s many reasons for regulated legal weed. Great for environmentalism, great for the economy, great for medicine, and great for mental health.
    What`s it bad for? Well, the salaries of cops, and the tobacco and alcohol industry.
    I can hardly believe in a country so backwards that a harmless nearly perfect crop is illegal.

    ubfwins: Do you have the capacity to think that they may have been losers with or without the weed?
    Really now, if you`re life is crappy, weed is a great anti-depressant to help people deal with it. So it makes sense that miserable people often flock to it.

    All signs point to weed legalization being a good idea, but I honestly don`t know why the drat people smoke the poo.

    It`s like, someone hands you a brain and says; "Here, take this brain. With it you can do anything. You can read any book you want, play any game you want, go anywhere, do anything, create anything, enjoy anything. So what will you do with it?"

    And then you take the brain, throw it up against a rock and scream; "LOL WEEEE!"

    wtf?

    Well, there is no record of anyone dying for using weed, u can`t overdose, ever. For all those who are saying that back in the New World it was only used for rope and paper, George Washington grew hemp for rope and stuff, oh and also, he smoked it, oh yes. I am pretty sure he was no loser, lame-o, etc. Most people I know that smoke weed are frickin geniuses. Plus recent studies suggest that weed actually increases neuron growth. Get educated and do some research.

    I don`t like being drunk even so being out of my tree on Cannabis for me is a non starter.

    Cannabis is (what ever the dopeheads say) linked to mental health problems in a percentage of users.

    Also it screws with your memory so if you want to end up working at burger king smoke lots of dope through high school so you fail all your exams.

    I know lots of people who have and do take it that have a normal life so for most people in moderation its no problem but for the few it can totaly drat up their mental health so not for me, thanks.

    State law in California does allow for legal medical pot, true. However, Federal law still prohibits it`s use in any form. Federal law, in this case, trumps State law, so it is still, technically, illegal. The Feds aren`t enforcing the law in this narrow case, but it is still, technically, illegal.

    I`ve never smoked it, and I`m against legalizing it. I have to admit, however, that if it does become legalized, and is affordable, I would be sorely tempted to try it, just to see what it`s like. Not until then, and maybe even not then. I`m torn.

    Never smoked it, never plan to. Don`t get me wrong, it`s probably great, but everyone I know who smokes it has just become lazy and unmotivated, quite a few of them dropping out of school. I cope perfectly fine without it, no point throwing away my money and education.

    However I do think they should legalise it, damn stuff wastes so much police time.

    theres different kinds of weed ranging from crappy (id prefer to smoke leaves from a tree) to great high quality weed, it is sort of like wines. probably if you smoked good weed you would like it. As I mentioned before, there`s no record of deaths associated with weed use, however with alcohol 100,000 deaths occur each year 45,000 of those being traffic fatalities which kill innocent people.

    1. Being under the influence of weed is alot different than being drunk much less nauseating and far more enjoyable also hangover free.
    2. The THC fairies have taken control of my mind and told me the mental health issues are a lie and you`re a secret ATF agent trying to sow refer madness myth again.
    3. I was one of the biggest potheads at my college along with a friend of mine and we were in the top GPAs of our grad year I had a 3.8 didn`t affect my memory.

    Alcohol is actually technically worse for you and can lead to a much larger range of health problems than weed does. One issue with weed is that it sort of eggs on, so to speak, schizophrenia. If you are more prone to be schizophrenic (maybe a family history of the mental disorder), weed can increase the chance you will become a severe schizo.

    Also, a vast majority of my friends who smoke weed ARE lazy and tend to under achieve. This correlation is mostly caused by the fact they`re partaking in any illegal drug use. Heavy drinkers tend to behave the same way.
    I`m sure there`s exceptions..although I have yet to see one.
