The first is the link to the myths of marijuana for medical use

http://www.420magazine.com/forums/medical-mar...

this is a list of ailments and disorders it treats

Alcohol and tobacco are legal, yet they kill on a daily basis.. there have been zero deaths by marijuana. Think of how freed up Our prison system and law enforcement would be. The time and manpower and money could then be spent taking out the meth that is destroying lives. Instead of trillions spent to eradicate marijuana, the States could be bringing in revenue.

Marijuana should be a choice, not a felony!

Supporters of Marijuana Legalization Can't Be Stereotyped.
by Scott Morgan, September 15, 2010, 09:12pm

For decades, the drug war's defenders have mocked calls for reform and arrogantly characterized our arguments as nothing more than the stoned fantasy of the idiot hippie fringe. But today, support for marijuana legalization can be found everywhere you look and our opponents can scarcely keep track of who they're debating anymore.
California is hardly homogenous, but marijuana legalization makes politics downright confusing in a state where the sides are sometimes flipped. Here, some ex-cops, state assemblymen and billionaire businessmen favor legalization, while there are pot growers and dealers who want to keep it outlawed.[CNN]
How crazy is that? Actually, anyone who truly understands what's at stake here shouldn’t be the least bit surprised. It's easy enough to claim that legalization will increase crime until a bunch of cops start saying the opposite. It's easy enough to claim that legalization will help criminals until illegal growers start publicly freaking out about losing their jobs. And of course, it's easy enough to claim that legalization is just outright ridiculous and stupid until everyone in America is talking about it intelligently and incessantly everywhere you go.

If you have a problem with changing our marijuana laws, that's your opinion and I forgive you for it. But unless you've taken the time to educate yourself about every argument on the table and every constituency in the movement for reform, you have no idea what you're dealing with.

Prohibition of alcohol didn't work and banning marijuana isn't working either.

One of the problems that the marijuana reform movement consistently faces is that everyone wants to talk about what marijuana does, but no one ever wants to look at what marijuana prohibition does.

Marijuana never kicks down your door in the middle of the night and puts a fully loaded assault rifle in your face. Marijuana never locks up sick and dying people in cages with rapist and murders. Marijuana does not suppress medical research. Marijuana does not peek in bedroom windows. Marijuana does not take away kids scholarships.

Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could.
