Actually studies are showing poor upbringings and bad education lead to more addicts of actual drugs than people that use something that is natural and grows out of the ground like a potato and basil and is a great remedy for most illnesses. Please PLEASE do some research before you comment on something!

For medicinal purposes, I'd say there is a justified use.

The government needs to do a better job at convincing the American voters if they want to continue on with this failed prohibition of marijuana. They claim that the 'plant' is dangerous and deadly, yet they can't provide any proof or credible evidence to back these claims up. If you want to know the FACTS about marijuana then click on the link below.

"The truth about marijuana the government doesn't want you to know."

Anyone can produce "facts" to back up their argument. People in favor of legalization will give you statistics to show how marijuana is less harmful than alcohol. But, most of our opinions are formed from what we see and experience. What I've seen over the years is at least a dozen people who started out trying out this "harmless" drug and now, years later, are pretty much unable or unwilling to contribute to society whatsoever. I know this doesn't happen to everybody who tries it, I'm just saying it's happened to more than will admit it.

Very interesting.... I found this info on another thread and thought it should be shared:

Before marijuana prohibition began in the late 1930's many people, including some of our nations leaders grew cannabis for a variety of reasons. It’s fairly well known that cannabis has thousands of industrial uses, and has been grown for thousands of years. While simply growing cannabis is far from proof that someone smoked it, there is still evidence showing many would-be U.S Presidents enjoyed it for recreational and medicinal uses.

George Washington Washington routinely smoked marijuana to alleviate the pain from his ailing teeth. Washington’s diary recounts his efforts to better cultivate and enhance his crops of marijuana.

Thomas Jefferson Jefferson grew cannabis on his plantation and smuggled Chinese hemp seeds to America. He also is believed to have given special smoking blends out as personal gifts which is why he makes the list.

James Madison Madison once remarked that hemp gave him insight to create a new and democratic nation.

James Monroe Monroe began smoking it as Ambassador to France & continued to the age of 73.

Andrew Jackson Jackson has been documented to have smoked cannabis and tobacco cigars along with the troops he led.

Zachary Taylor Like Andrew Jackson, Taylor is said to have smoked with his troops in one or more of the many wars he was in.

Franklin Pierce Continuing a popular theme of the era, Pierce also smoked with his troops as a general in the Mexican-American War. In a letter to his family, he says cannabis is “about the only good thing” in the war.

Abraham Lincoln Quotes (real and fake) about Lincoln enjoying hemp are all over the internet. While some debate if Lincoln sparked up, many resources point to yes.

John F. Kennedy Close acquaintances say Kennedy used cannabis regularly to control his back pain (even during his term) and actually planned on legalizing marijuana during his second term.

Jimmy Carter Along with his efforts to legalize marijuana, Some say Carter also hosted many marijuana smoke filled events at the White House. This leads most to assume Carter at least tried it at some point in life.

George W. Bush Bush publicly refused to answer the marijuana question. He was later caught saying he refused to talk about it “because I don’t want some little kid doing what I tried”.

Bill Clinton Clinton famously stated that he smoked but “didn’t inhale”. He has been known to bend the truth every now and then, so he still makes the list.

Barack Obama Even though he joked off many American’s wishes to legalize marijuana, Obama has been very open with his own marijuana smoking in the past, once saying “I inhaled frequently. That was the point”.

Knowledge of our country and our past and present presidents helps to attribute to people becoming informed on facts. Unfortunately many people don't look into the real lives of the people who built this country. Thank you for posting this information for everyone to read and acknowledge. Kudos to you.

There are no reports of any deaths by marijuana and alcohol is legal but the death rates are ridiculous.

Well just becauce a substance makes you lazy it should not be against the law to partake in it. If you want to grow something in your garden and put it in your mouth and light it on fire that should noptbe illegal. And if lighting it up makes you lazy then it makesyou lazy and in the end you will be poorer for it....sort of like the welfare system. Makes you lazy.
