NO!NO, NO!! marijuana is practically a medicine. The only reason it is not legal is that the American Government is trying to justify it's trillion dollar war on drugs that has only successfully imprisoned nearly 1% of the American population, and driven up the price of narcotics to a price that makes crime pay, Hence the dismal crime rate in the US. Take Countries that pot is legal, like Holland, crime is down and even consumption. Do you ever see two baked people fighting outside a bar, beating up their family, NO! you see that all the time with liqueer, and it is still legal. Look how many people die from tobacco every year, it's still legal.
I live in Canada, it is practically legal here. You can even get a perscription from a doctor for it. My dad has gloccoma in his eyes and and pot is so much better then the pharmisutical medicines that his doctor recomends thats what he uses to keep down the swelling.
