I've often agreed that Marijuana should be legalized. Basically, right now we have a prohibition against it. Think of how many people die from Alcohol and Smoking related deaths! Both of which are LEGAL drugs. The only thing that could cause you any health concern with Marijuana is the fact that if you smoke it, it's like smoking a cigarette. You still get crap in your lungs which causes the same crap Emphysema, Asthma...as smoking a cigarette.
First off, if it were taxable and regulated by the US government, that's 450 billion dollars a year in taxes. And...we're in what, a recession right now? We could use all the tax dollars we need! Medical shops pay the federal government and the state government taxes every year. One guy on a special report on CNN even said, "I pay 200,000 to the state of California and 300,000 in federal taxes." and this is a little medicinal shop. It'd benefit the economy more so.
Marijuana has never KILLED ANYONE. EVER. It does not mutate your DNA, and half the "facts" about the drug are from a movie from the 1960's maybe even the 70's called Reefer Madness, one of those Public Announcement practically Nazi-ish scare tactics to give people sh*tty information about the drug itself.
Drugs like MDMA, or ecstasy were actually created for medical purposes, MDMA can KILL YOU even if you take it once. And going to raves, I've carried out far more people "rolling" than I have "stoned" (like, 10 to 0). I've seen people overdose on man made substances like Meth and MDMA. I carried out a 14 year old once, who died in my f***ing arms on the way to the Med station because MDMA.
Marijuana has practical uses other than getting high. Products like, Hemp Milk, Hemp Clothing, Hemp Paper. Plus the medical benefits for both Cancer Patients and AIDS/HIV patients.4
