Because freedom can't protect itself
Why are the politicians so out of touch with their constituents? Do they believe they know better than the people? Surely, the facts don't back up their clinging to marijuana prohibition. Politicians, marijuana is beating you people in the polls!
It's about time for common sense to do away with the lies surrounding marijuana. It's harmless and even beneficial. Stop the marijuana discrimination!
The ingnored factor in this effort to legalize Medical Marijuana is the public health aspects. In Michigan the MM law is written so loosely that it makes marijuana virtually legal and available to people of all ages, even youth. Before we get swept down the stream of personal rights, lets take a serious look at the overall public good.
Additionally, alcohol and tobacco are legal products for those who are 21 and 18 respectfully. The two drugs that create the most devastation for the most people are alcohol and tobacco - for different reasons. Marijuana offers the altered consciousness similar to alcohol and the carcinogen risks beyond tobacco. Where is the concern for the public well being?
Save the country and legalize hemp. Our country has completely lost itself in a false reality where big industry suppresses new and healthy competition. I hope they are frightened now. End this prohibition!
Marijuana legalization is slowly becoming a reality. I'm still confused as to why people are against it. It's seriously odd to me. It's pretty much nonsense that it is classified the way it is. Pretty sure alcohol has done way more hard than marijuana will ever do.
