    So, my mom just called me out.

    This is the second time she's come in my room and told me it smells like skunk. I diverted her attention, but I had to pull my head out of my *** and at least say something to her about it. "I just want you to know that I don't take you for a fool. I know you know. I just...

    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 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...

    if weed was legal I wouldn't be taking opiates

    like oxycodone, hydrocodone and dilaudid like I do. I would much rather have weed be legal than alcohol.

    I've tried it a few time and,

    sadly, I can't say it did anything for me, but I'm all in favor of its legalization, and for amnesty for people currently in prison for non-violent, minor marijuana-related crimes.

    What's wrong with mellowing out?

    Why should I be limited to booze? When will the world wake up to alternate realities?

    It's less harmful to your lungs than cigarettes, and less addictive than alcohol. The people who like it are going to smoke it wether it's legal or not. Why are we still wasting so much money in the legal system and law enforcment on pot, why not put that money and resources to...

    Marijuana has been legal

    for most of human history. It was outlawed as a reaction to a public relations campaign built on falsehoods. It has had many uses across ancient cultures. If you suffer from chronic nerve pain or neurodegenerative disorders, it is one of the few non addictive pain management...

    I DO NOT THINK MARIJUANA SHOULD BE LEGALIZED.

    Well at least manufactured by companies. Because companies also manufacture tobacco and they add all kinds of different poisonous things to the cigarettes. Not to mention nicotine to make it addictive! If marijuana were legalized it would be grown in fields which would be...

    I think that most people are against Marijuana

    because they've been given false information. They've not been told about the positive effects it has on the sick, and they don't know all that it can do for society. I know people who still think it can kill you! Has no one done any research??

    5 common misconceptions about weed: 1.

    "It's addictive" -You can virtually get addicted to anything, but there are absolutely no addictive ingredients in marijuana. 2. "It causes cancer" -False. There have actually been 32 known CURES to cancer from solely marijuana 3. "You can overdose and die" -There are 0 annual...

    Does Weed Make You Horny?

    I don't know if you've ever seen the 1950-60s movie called "Reefer Fever", but it's hilarious. The theme behind it is all of the terrible things that people will do if they smoke grass... like turning into murderers, rapists, robbers, sex addicts, and generally horrible people...

    For medical purposes,

    I think it's a no-brainer. For recreational purposes, though, I don't understand our country's approach to criminalizing the substance. It has medicinal value, with lesser effects than heroin and other lethal drugs and yet our government says it has no medicinal use whatsoever...

    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.

    I think cannabis helped me out SOO much.

    I suffer from ptsd among other things. I did use it as a crutch for awhile, but people need crutches sometimes so they can heal and then learn to walk again. Not to mention I enjoyed using it. I'm in support of fully legalized marijuana, recreational medical, whatever. I hate...
