Less harmful than opiates for pain relief, and many ohter things it can be used for medicinally. Less harmful than Tylenol.

It's easier to sober up from than alcohol.
It tends to mellow people where alcohol radicals people.

Poison Ivy is a plant from the earth too. Unbelievable people are still using... "It's all natural" as a way to deal with drugs

I have scirrohsis of the liver and suffer greatly due to having no appetite. I've found that if I take a puff of M.J. I am able to eat.With me it's a live or die situation!

Absolute freedom for family-farmers means MORE topsoil conservation, thus, MORE truly organic farming; thus, LESS GMO-death-crops, that sterilize us "useless eaters", and then KILL US! Save life, resist death with hemp...

Unless you have first-hand experience with that, then you are just spewing the same ignorant propaganda that we have been fed for decades.

Think for yourself.

80% of the money the Mexican drug narco terrorist get their money from is pot. We are supporting thousands of Al Capones and the bitter violence they are visiting on their and our people. Whack the violent.

its just rediculous to not support it at this point alcohol is legal and it kills way more people than pot same with cigarettes which ironicaly enough causes the reason for medicinal marijuana I dont do drugs I did in the early 80's and some prior to that but once I married and had children been a "just say no" example. I say legalize it and tax the hell out of it

This is a plant given on the planet and has many uses besides smoking. But it does have many medicinal uses. Chronic pain is the big one for me as I suffer neuropathic pain from a spinal disease. Marijuana is better than any narcotic out there and should be legalized at least for that purpose. All the government does is lie about marijuana because the drug companies would lose billions if it were to be legalized. The old "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" routine. It's a natural plant like tobacco, and does far less damage!

You said it all brother, booze and tobacco kill, marijuana doesn't. I have never head of anyone overdosing on pot, but booze..yes; and tobacco causes cancer. Marijuana has so many medical uses it's unbelievable. But until our government pulls it's head out of it's rear it will not happen.
