Freedom from fear. No more para military raids on non violent cannabis smokers.

i believe it will increase money in the states. It will also save money in the law enforcement area trying to battle it, and take away about 24 billion dollars away from the battling drug cartels in Mexico.

Don't worry about New Jersey's medical pot law. Fat boy christie is doing everything he can to deny suffering patients access to cannabis. Shame on NJ for electing this loudmouthed right wing moron!

It's time to see the business side of this, the taxpayer side, the cost to the community for people who have been incarcerated. The burden that marijuana has placed on society through our politicians has been insane based on lies and innuendo. Science and fact have never entered into the issue of marijuana. Saying "it's just a weed" doesn't do this debate justice. We have an obligation to look at marijuana for it's potential in many ways, besides as a pleasure enhancer.

I am a 100% disabled veteran, with 22 years of honorable military service. Marijuana helps ease some of the symptoms of my various service-connected disabilities. Yet, in Pennsylvania, I am considerated a criminal; because I sometimes use marijuana over narcotic prescribed medications. I earned the right to use medical marijuana, however, the politicians who never spent one day serving in the military, enact and support laws, that continue and prolong my suffering. Just read the "Emperor Wears No Cloths," and you will see that marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance, historically speaking; because of discrimination against mexicans.

There have actually cases of people being denied life saving organ transplants because of their use of medical cannabis. It's a real shame that most doctors still believe the propaganda being put out by the government. I was actually denied pain meds at Penn Dental School because I admitted smoking pot in college 40 plus years ago! I was considered a 'potential addict.' They need to legalize cannabis across the board for medical and personal use.

Arnold raised the Cali tax on a z of weed $50.00.a year ago!! We are losing so much tax revenue it is disturbing!! Do we want the people who could beifit from erb taking chemikills? Would a person whom has a sleep problem be better off burning one down prior to bed,or eat a pill that may have them walking around at 3am naked and confused? The chronic pain patient,better he/she should be all opiated out? Wake up AMERICAN VOTERS,wake up and smell the schunk weed!!!! All the jobs all the tax dollars lost..

One more thing-I have never lived in a city where it is so difficult to find good weed. Of course I could venture up to Kensington and find schwag easily enough. It is sad when its easier to find heroin than weed in Philly! I should probably get some lights and--well you know!!

Much needed for medicinal purposes for both my wife and myself. Better than relying on prescription pharmaceuticals which have many more bad side-efects
