   To Flackel: Your brain is lying to you man! That is what drugs do. Alcohol, cannibus, everything created on this planet is some way a natural plant or other. Asphalt is of natural earth elements. Yes, even cow manure! Everything made in a laboratory is planet produced. Now, should we demoralize our own systems for ultimate pleasures. I THINK NOT. Stupidity is not one of my characteristics. I did get sprayed by a skunk on purpose one when I was 15 so I could get rid of some perfume a girl in school threw on me!  I showed her!!! :D   
stupidity might not be one of your characteristics, you make it sound like it's your only one.
that one made me giggle...most people that smoke pot do it too much;same goes with drinking will that make people stop? um...no!

it is banned :) but its a natural plant tho its not man made so it cant be a drug..

Well, if that's the case, then why isn't Peyote legalized?  It comes from a cactus...

The argument that marijuana should be legal because its a plant is a weak one at best. Pretty much everything we consume or use in our daily lives came from plants in one form or another. I have already stated in earlier post some real, scientific, and logical reasons that marijuana (and all drugs, in fact.) should be legal for everyone to use on their own bodies as they see fit as long as they don't harm anyone else.

The fact that something is man made does not mean it should be legal. It also doesn't mean it should be illegal. The amount of man madeness (is that even a word?) has no bearing on somethings illegalness (oh well, I suppose you know what I am getting at). One could argue marjiuana is man made when we plant it, harvest it, roll it up in paper, and put it on fire. There's a lot of man-made steps in those methods.

Well mostly science favors marijuana (medical and/or responsible usage)..

But....

No matter what anyone's view is, I am sure everyone totally agrees that the war on drugs is a massive failure. (Spending,results, etc.)

The well intentioned war on drugs has pretty much turned into a pointless, costly effort.  The jails are full of people with drug offenses while hoards of mentally deranged serial killers are running around committing mass murders and going pretty much unnoticed until they kill a bunch of people.  They should just go ahead and legalize the less harmful drugs so that they are no longer attractive as a source of making money, and put that effort and money toward addressing the problem of identifying the mass murderers all over the country before they commit these heanous crimes.

This post is all true, except for the bolded statement. The war on drugs had no good intentions whatsoever. The reason why marijuana became illegal in the first place is due to racism. Also, we shouldn't just legalize the "less harmful drugs". There is a difference between a consenting adult using meth and someone murdering someone else (even if in both cases someone dies). All drugs should be 100% legal for anyone to use on their own selves on their own property. To suggest otherwise is accepting a victimless crime, since the person committing the crime IS the victim.

  I just :dontknow: , this is a touchy subject cause it can be used only for medical for people who are in pain ,but if they would just give it to GOD then you shouldnt need it at all, cause GOD can do ALL things possible if you have an headache or back pain, God can take that pain away but thats my opinion, God has taken all my pains away with out any meds,Praise god, how bout you,? he can do the same for you,amen

Drug laws in general are screwed up beyond belief and the "war" on drugs is a gigantic failure. I don't see either of these situatons changing until we vote the old naive idiots out of office and the drug companies let their guards down or stop making as much money as they are currently. I think I speak for everyone when I say I think the future is looking positive for marijuana.

Look up Rick Simpson's "Run From The Cure".  That's one of the reasons the government banned it.

natural elements can still be "drugs". Penicilin is a drug and that is just mold growth. Same with funky mushrooms. Thats Psilocybin (sp?) and that occurs naturally. Ditto with peyote

To say that marijuana has been given a bad rap over the past few decades is an understatement. If you’re like most Americans, you have been led to believe that marijuana is a dangerous and addictive drug that has destroyed the lives of millions of teens and adults. You have been encouraged to believe that marijuana causes lung cancer and is a “gateway” to harder drugs. The government has even tried to convince you that most people who use marijuana are losers who sit around on couches all day doing nothing.
Part of the problem is that many people are simply unfamiliar with marijuana. The truth is that marijuana is widely used in a manner quite similar to alcohol. Alcohol is more toxic, more addictive, more harmful to the body, more likely to result in injuries, and more likely to lead to interpersonal violence than marijuana.
FACTS-
Many people die from alcohol use. Nobody dies from marijuana use.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more than 37,000 annual U.S. deaths, including more than 1,400 in Colorado, are attributed to alcohol use alone
People die from alcohol overdoses. There has never been a fatal marijuana overdose.
Alcohol is one of the most toxic drugs and using just 10 times what one would use to get the desired effect could lead to death. Marijuana is one of – if not the – least toxic drugs, requiring thousands of times the dose one would use to get the desired effect to lead to death.
The health-related costs associated with alcohol use far exceed those for marijuana use.
Health-related costs for alcohol consumers are eight times greater than those for marijuana consumers,
Alcohol use damages the brain. Marijuana use does not.
A growing number of studies seem to indicate that marijuana actually has neuroprotective properties. This means that it works to protect brain cells from harm.
Alcohol use is linked to cancer. Marijuana use is not.
Marijuana use has not been conclusively associated with any form of cancer. In fact, one study recently contradicted the long-time government claim that marijuana use is associated with head and neck cancers. It found that marijuana use actually reduced the likelihood of head and neck cancers.
Alcohol is more addictive than marijuana.
Alcohol use increases the risk of injury to the consumer. Marijuana use does not.
Many people who have consumed alcohol or know others who have consumed alcohol would not be surprised to hear that it greatly increases the risk of serious injury.
Alcohol use contributes to aggressive and violent behavior. Marijuana use does not

ALL FACTS don’t believe go here http://www.saferchoice.org/content/view/24/53/
So my thought is, if marijuana is illegal so should alcohol for that matter.
This is completely stupid because NOBODY should tell you what you can and cannot do. I do not drink but I do not see a problem with marijuana I personally have never heard of someone “High Driving” and crash and possibly kill themselves or someone else. And if they have they was probably drunk or on pills for that matter.

And YES I am all for the legalization of marijuana   ;D
