Marijuana just is. Whether it is good or bad depends upon the individual.
I think it should be legalised and treated the same way as alcohol, although its affects seem infinitely less violent than alcohol.
i feel strongly that marijuana gives a lot of people relief from whats ailing them without the negative side effects of alchohol--- of course, everything in moderation. i think that the media has blown it out of proportion--that there is a lot of misinformation out there. to top it off, marijuana is different for everyone. it is Not a positive thing for a lot of people. those people should stay away from it.
Just like liquor during prohibition, it exists, it is used, and trying to make it illegal just wastes money, ruins lives, and fills the bank accounts of criminals. It was legal in this country far longer than it has been illegal, and we seemed to do okay before criminalization.
