    It's the only thing that helps with endo pain

    This really wound me up this morning.

    I am still not sure why there is suck a stigma

    on this drug. it seems to have much better pain killing effects then some of the awful opiates. Legalizing this for medical use should be a no brainier. Instead it seems it is more political then just helping helping people.

    I mean lets be real here.

    Alcohol is legal and people get drunk and kill each other. If weed were legal the same people would be at home on the couch watching cartoons and eating junk food

    I understand why drugs like crack

    and heroin are illegal, they are addictive and cause a lot of problems but marijuana? That doesn't unless you smoke massive amounts - and everything is bad if you have too much of it! It doesn't make any sense to me that marijuana is illegal when alcohol is legal, especially...

    I think if alcohol is legal,

    why shouldn't weed be legal? Alcohol can do just as much harm as weed, and it's not illegal, there's no prohibition. As long as people don't go crazy with it, there shouldn't be a big deal, moderation is key.

    Is a decent job worth living in constant fear

    of a random drug test? I think not. It's none of my job's business what I like to do in my spare time. It's not like I'm killing people or totally self destructive and out of control. Alas, this is my reality, and it puts a major dent in my happiness. I hope to see the courts...

    I do not smoke it often at all,

    but know many people who partake daily. If for no other reason that I think it is a waste of tax dollars arresting, prosecuting and imprisioning marijuana dealers/users.

    I don't want to smoke it,

    but there's no problem with others smoking it. A lot of my friends smoke pot; it's really no big deal, and there's no logical reason why it's still illegal when things like alcohol and cigarettes are legal at a certain age. Anyway, can someone name me the last person who died...

    It's safer than alcohol both

    for your body, and society. It has very few side effects, and they're not long term or even harmful, for the most part. Also, it doesn't disorient you as much as alcohol. I don't see why it's illegal.
