The prohibition of cannabis is perhaps the dumbest law ever enforced on the public. Hemp could be a trillion dollar industry. Cannabis use is safer, healthier, and smarter than alcohol use. There isn't one documented case of cancer resulting from it's use, and as a matter of fact, it has been proven to help prevent cancer and CURE cancer (see Rick Simpson & Run From the Cure). The dangers of cannabis use are negligible and the former head of the DEA in 1974 stated it is "one of the safest and therapeutic substances known to man." Nobody has ever died from it's use, it's less addictive than coffee, and has been used to treat/cure HUNDREDS of illnesses (for thousands of years). Should marijuana be legalized? Good God... the prohibition of it (which doesn't work) is a crime.
Yes it should
It should never have been illegal in the first place. Harvard University published a report in 2007 that proves it cures certain cancers, stops tumors from growing and cuts them in half. Oh... and its not bad for you if you regularly use it. There's been so many more positive studies latley that I don't understand why I can't go to circle k and buy some?
Legalize it because it should be used by patients. A lot better than some of these other meds people get hooked on.
The plant look ssme when grown so have to control both with scare tactics. Just big business.
George Washington grew hemp
This is an old restriction by the cotton and wool industry against hemp which would go a long way to reduce carbon emitions. Do the research.
