for instance: i have ADHD. now i could take "real medicine" made by man from chemicals that are unheard of!!! those drugs make me crazy, and have the effects of meth! everyone that takes that medicine acts like a crack head...not eating, losing muscle mass, high strung, highly addicted. or i could smoke "bad medicine" made literally by God! hello! there are no bad side affects (aside from munchies!! and a good nights sleep!!) people don't really commit crimes so they can get more pot. people don't get stoned and act stupid and want to go drive really fast or run red lights or anything that drinking can make you want to do. in fact, it makes you more cautious, you can get in trouble for driving high and you know it! its a shame that its illegal, but heres the facts. think about all the jobs lost if it were legal.... small town cops....like 40% of jailers... pot sniffing dogs... anit-marijuana campaigners... oh yeah and by the way, it isnt a gateway drug. the reality of that is you have to go to criminals in order to smoke, in turn the people that you go to offer you something else.... its not like when you smoke pot, you think, geez i"d really like to smoke some meth now, too! in fact, i would bet that has never happened! it is medicine, and if it wasnt, people wouldnt be allowed to smoke it for pain, or naseau or anything like that. its natural, its good, and useful.
