Pot, bringing smiles to 1000's.
Alcohol, bringing anger and disease to more.

I've seen users and their loved one suffer due to drug addiction. Any type of chemical that changes the brain should not be legal.

Then hey... while You're listing them allow Me to help You..Caffeine(be it Soft drinks or Coffee),chocolate,over the counter cough medicines,ice cream,oysters... care to get any more ridiculous? Marijuana is NOT a chemical at all.

Then how do you explain the changes in brain chemistry when it is ingested or smoked? If it has no chemicals in it, then how can it alter a mood or cause cravings? What exactly is your definition of a chemical?

Short answer: Everything is a chemical. Longer answer: Chemistry is the study of matter and its interactions with other matter. Anything made of matter is therefore a chemical. Any liquid, solid, gas. Any pure substance; any mixture. Water is a chemical. Technically speaking, so is a chunk of your computer. A chemical can often be broken down into components, as is true with your computer. However, people generally use the term 'chemical' to refer to a substance that appears homogeneous or the same throughout its structure. By Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph.D.

One's physical body is merely a vessel to hold the spirit given to us by God. As such, it should be cared for and respected. That which pollutes the body, disrespects the spirit. As for the use of seed bearing herbs, to use them to harm the body is to invite evil. As for your grandchildren I hope they are allowed to be involved in their school's DARE program.

Brain Cells are on the down spin... Don't add to your misery.
Amazing people can't afford food, clothing, they let the government take care of them. But a bag of pot, of course they will buy it. Proves my point, STUPID IS, AS STUPID DOES!!

Genisis 1:29 All seed bearing herbs are good.It is in bible.He does not say what to do with them.But you know what he meant.I call him the great sprit myself, being Native American myself.I can go back to 1701 on my people.I do know where my people have been.I do have 5 family members fighting in war now.And a grandson getting ready to go.Do you know what we are fighting for i thought it was freedom.But I dont know.And all my grandchildren are out of school and doing very good if i may say.Blessing to you and your loved ones.

I hope you know the quote is incomplete: Genesis 1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

The Hebrew word translated “meat” means “food.” There isn’t any way to change it to include or mean “smoke.” The Bible uses the term "smoke" with burning wood, houses, sacrifices, and at the judgment.

This plant can be used in many different ways to improve our lives: rope, canvas, oil; it does have proven medical properties, but as a “recreational” drug, it is harmful.

I am grateful to the many soldiers who are sacrificing so much to protect this country, including members of my own family. I pray that God blesses those who work with them clear minds and steady hands.
I do not believe they are fighting to protect the drug trade and those who profit and suffer because of it.
Peace to you and your family.

Heck I dont smoke it.I just want the right to choose if I want to and not be a criminal.Thats what i think a free American should be able to do.I think adults should have the say so.You must sell it because from what i hear around the sellers dont want it legal it will hurt there pockets.And save the USA a lot of money.Most i smoke is when i pray and light up my sage.But i do that outside so the smoke will go to the Great Spirit.And again I think we the people should decide our own lives as long as we are not hurting others.I think that is what freedom is.But what do I know,My people had to give up land,learn white man words,and go to school learn to be white.So many died, have you heard of the trail of tears.It was so wrong and still people that are adults can not choose.We the people should be able to control our own lives.As long as we are hurting no one.And I did not say we were fighting for the drug trade.I said for freedom read my post again plz.At my age everyone I know is on pills from doctor.Pot was the 60s and 70s.I just believe adults should be able to choose what they want we do pay taxs.Blessings
