I Support the Legalization of Marijuana

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,753 People

    Harry J Anslinger is responsible

    for why pot is federally illegal. This is the same man that said: "Reefer makes darkies think they're as good as white men." And "Smoke a joint and you're likely to kill your brother." The government needs to ask itself, isn't it time to quit following ignorance and hate?

    Puff The Magic Dragon

    Alcohol makes me fall over, tell my life story, be really honest, pick fights, cry, vomit, have a hangover. Marijuana makes me mello and happy, I have complete control over myself and my mind, Iam at peace, then it wears off and I feel fine, no after effects. Yea, inhaling...

    Lies And Truths, Laws And Freedoms.

      The only argument against marijuana was that textile manufacturers wanted to get rid of the hemp industry so their own manmade fiber industry would do well.  Until then, it was not against the law. People forget that, and have believed the lies and rumors that were...

    I cannot help but see a correlation between

    alcohol prohibition, and marijuana legalization. As with New York, passing one of the first laws against drunk driving in the 1910s (History of DUI Laws, n.d.), drunk driving was still an issue in the 1920-1930s. Despite the best legal efforts to discourage, criminalize, and...

    I see nothing wrong with it,

    whatsoever. Honestly it's a damn plant.. It's not made with a ton of chemicals and it makes you feel happy, what's wrong with that? If it was legalized, I believe it should be treated the same way as alcohol though, you can't be high while driving..

    In fact, I find it quite ignorant to have ever

    made this naturally growing plant illegal, and even more ridiculous that we as people have had to band together for decades to get the okay for medical and recreational use of marijuana.

    Medicine

    In its classic form marijuana is a medicine. It's properties are many. The illicit use of it undermines the positive aspects of it. A friend gets bad migraines. One hit on a spliff and the migraine is gone!

    I believe that marijuana should be legalized.

    Not for teenagers who think it makes them look "cool" but for people like me. I personally smoke marijuana almost on a daily. I have chronic arthritis and depression that causes insomnia. Not only does it take the pain away but it helps me sleep at night.

    Why The Hell Not?

    I've yet to hear of any good reasons not to. Someone once told me because it was a "gateway drug." I don't believe that nonsense. Marijuana doesn't "possess" you and "make" you do other drugs. The people who go on to use other drugs are using drugs as an excuse to deal with...

    God made this beautifull plant to help people. Before pot was illegalized it was used for so much (like Levis, oil, paper) When the prohibition era was about to end the alcohol producers wanted it illegalized due to the competition it created. So they deemed it illegal. Now with...

    I think pot is so much better

    than booze n so many ways, yet booze is legal and pot isn't. I smoked pot in my youth but haven't for a long time now. Even if it was made legal I don't think I would smoke it, but I support the rights of others to do it.

    Because marijuana is a completely harmless

    plant. Non addictive and has a zero death rate while legal drugs such as alcohol and cigarettes - cause health problems and in some cases death. Cannibas cures cancer and help cancer patients. It helps with creativity and relaxation.
