    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!

    We are missing a great tax source, and the quality would be monitored so there wouldn't be any issues, medical or otherwise. There really is no difference between smoking, alcohol, and pot. Any substance as these need regulating.

    It Just Makes Sense

    Why would we not legalize it? I think most of the problems reported are because it is illegal. If it was regulated and taxed the government could make money. So instead of locking people up and spending money it could become a cash cow for the government. I guess we learned...
