SHOULD be legalized in the us. i dont smoke it, but i still stand behind this belief.
1.it is IMPOSSIBLE to overdose on pot, which is possible to do on other legal perscription medications
2.although smoking one joint is = to 7 or so cigarettes, the average smoker smokes WAY more cigarettes than the average pot smoker Pot smokers do not smoke 3 packs a day of pot. Usually only about 3 joints MAXIMUM are smoked per day.
3.Although it is still dangerous and could possibly cause injuries, things such as getting drunk and driving w/o a seatbelt are just as risky as getting high, although the former is legal and the latter is only enforced SOMETIMES with a small fine of about 100$ or so.
4.The amount of smokers/ former smokers who die each year from smoking related deaths: 440,000
The amount of pot users/ former pot users who die each year from pot related deaths: 0
you tell me which should be legal from those figures.
5.Respectable people such as Barack Obama have used pot (and do not give a thumbs down on this definition if you think obama is not respectable. thats just stupid to do that.)
again, i have never used pot. i think it is not a smart thing to do, but that it should be legalized, just like tobacco.
quote from the department of agriculture:
"In strict medical terms, marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. For example, eating ten raw potatoes can result in toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough cannabis to induce death."
quote from abe lincoln:
"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance.
It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control mans appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes.
A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principals upon which our government was founded."

a term used for the 'drug' coming from the cannabis sativa plant. Many people look down upon it, many see it as harmless and a good way to relieve stress. to clear up any confusion, here are a few basic facts about the effects of smoking marijuana.more...
- it's smoke is sometimes considered more harmful than tobacco smoke, but there is some debate to this; there is more of certain carcinogens in marijuana smoke than in tobacco smoke, but there are more of other carcinogens in tobacco smoke than in marijuana smoke. one way or another, puff for puff, marijuana is more harmful than tobacco. BUT, tobacco smokers take a very significantly higher amount of puffs than a mariujana user in general.
- Marijuana alters the way one thinks, perceives the environment, and perceives time. Things seem much more significant when on marijuana, and also time often seems to go by slowly.
- It relaxes the user, as oppose to alcahol, which more often than not, alters a person's judgement and ability to make decisions, and causes viloence quite often (makes you think, why is marijuana illegal and alcahol is not?)
- alcahol and tobacco both cause much more deaths per year than marijuana; it is impossible to overdose on marijuana.
-marijuana is non addictive, and may only become mentally addicting to some users who abuse it over a long period of time.
- If you don't want to smoke marijuana, that's cool, but don't label people who do as losers. It does not have all the negative effects as many peo...
