Prohibition does not prevent cannabis use by children or the mentally ill, the vulnerable populations whom we supposedly want to protect. Instead, cannabis prohibition makes it more difficult for parents, patients, society, doctors and law enforcement to control cannabis use.

The Drug War makes honest education about cannabis impossible, and leaves cannabis users marginalized in ways that make their lives more stressful.
This stress is unhealthy for everyone, but it is certainly most damaging to people with schizophrenia.

Cannabis prohibition is not merely a failure; it is a counterproductive fraud that is harming those whom we claim we want to protect.
There are currently more teens in treatment centers for marijuana in comparison to those admitted for alcohol.
Only an idiot would have to ask why alcohol is not the no#1 problem
after all alcohol is perfectly legal ( If you are 21.)
That is due to responsible people handling alcohol by way of the carding and id system.

Contraband markets make no age disgression.
Since the crackdown on tobacco there are 75% fewer teens trying or using tobacco.
However when it comes to cannabis and other illicit substances it’s a whole
other ball game.
Control, regulation and better education work prohibition, dose not.
Or as John Walters of the ondcp (Office for national drug control policy) calls it “ a war on drugs” (Sorry John but it’s true look at the Netherlands)

America loves a war even if it is on it’s own people.

One of several reason they don’t legalize drugs is not because of the harm of drugs,
But people would lose more money in the long run.
Some of the people behind the support of this irrational so called war are
The tobacco industry,
the alcohol and distilled spirit industry ( people simply don’t drink as much, or decide not to drink at all with cannabis meaning a decline in there sales.
The pharmaceutical corporations can not make money on whole or raw cannabis, but they can charge an arm and a leg for there synthetic Marinol (dronabinol) CIII.

The textile and paper industry would lose out from hemp production, sinse hemp dose not need to go through all the various processes that ordinary tree products would. Also it’s possible to get two harvest in one season.

However people don’t know the difference between industrial hemp and smokeable cannabis, yet they are able to distinguish between the two in other country’s like Germany, the UK , Netherlands and even Canada, but our `DEA agents are so dumb they cant tell the difference between a stalk and a bush.
Also people who have any knowledge of growing high quality cannabis will tell you that male plants should never be grown next to your high grade female plants,
(unless of course you want to pollinate for future seed production).
When it comes to farming hemp the males are left in tact to pollinate the females and produce as much seed as possible.

This would mean a seedy mess for the pot smoker to clean up and produce undesirable future generations of smokeable cannabis.

If anything, Hemp farming would be anti marijuana and would harm any outdoor pot farming within a one mile radius of any hemp farm.

The petroleum industry would also be affected, sinse almost everything that can be made from petroleum can be synthesized from hemp oil, everything from bio fuel to even plastics. If North America would use a third of it’s land for hemp production we could create enough bio fuel to supply an area the size of Canada.

Now also for a moment consider how many people are incarcerated over just cannabis who are currently in the prisons and jails.
If cannabis were legalized and all inmates serving time for cannabis were freed there would be an over abundance of empty cells, and millions of guards in this country would be no longer needed.
The prison building industry would almost be obsolete ( and if all drugs were legalized that would mean even more empty cells).

So the prison system must have some means of gaining more inmates.
Not to mention other areas such as treatment centers, probation.etc
or HIDTA high intensity drug traffic areas where money is fed in to law enforcement,
(they would miss there green $$$)

Drugs , not even alcohol are the cause of the fundamental ills of society, rather than checking people for the presence of drugs, they should first test people for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.

    Too many drunks and disorganized people out there now. Don’t need any more people on the roads under any influence

  2. Razor Jim says:

    No to legalization, Alcohol is the best argument against it.

  3. Michael H says:

    Absolutely not!! Drugs destroys people’s lives, it destroys brain cells (once brain cells are destroyed they will never grow back), destroys families, drugs cause an undo burden on the over-taxed health system, drugs causes people to lose hope for the future, and most important is the fact that drugs kill just don’t kill the user/pusher either but drugs also kill innocent by-standers too.

    Medical marijuana is another story. Marijuana; under very strict supervision of a doctor; can relieve glaucoma, relieve pain associated with cancer/ Aids, and increases hunger in cancer patients while decreasing nausea. If they did make medical marijuana legal, marijuana might just stay out of the hands who what to do nothing more but abuse it. The reason being is because the hospitals might be willing to pay more for it than what most casual users, especially teenagers, might be willing to pay for.

    Medical marijuana is the ONLY drug that should be legalized and for every reason that I stated in the previous paragraphs. Besides that, if you are dying from cancer/ Aids, your only concern is to live the last few days pain free and medical marijuana has been proven to improve the lives of people that is dying from cancer/ Aids better than any other method available.

    Well man it takes forever to read all that but here is what I think. I think that if Marijuana was legal then I wouldnt be able to afford it and it would be subject to inflation and maybe the way we handle weed is fine for the moment, but small personal use smokers shouldnt even be bothered. Its people who are growing seperate houses full of the stuff and not having any discretion over who its being sold to that is a drag about the pot. But there is far worse out there, I have seen people who smoke pot and are able to function and maintain just fine. I have seen people messed up on meth,speed,alcahol,cocaine, and other such drugs who dont pay their bills and only care about themselves, the dealers are just as money and power hungry, lets take care of the major narcotics that are destroying our society and tearing families apart,making them homeless! Lets address those issues before we study Marijuana and small time growers or users and crack down on the crack dealers and meth labs, if you really want to make a difference in society.!!! I want my kids to grow up in a better world,where they dont have to worry about gunshots or drugs!!!!!

  5. Mary W says:

    Yes, I do. If we want to get the prison overcrowding to end quickly then legalize drugs such as pot, cocaine, and meth for “personal use only. Take the crime out of these crimes and we let people decide what they choose to put into their own bodies. If they OD and die, who is going to miss them – except their parents and kids?

  6. mo79uk says:

    I don’t use drugs, but the fact is people do and always will. If you legalise it, you at least eradicate the dealer, lessen crime and because you identify the user you can help them more easily.

  7. seker2k says:

    Alcohol and Nicotine are both drugs.

    If marijuanna is to stay illegal because its a drug and destroys lives, then all alcoholic drinks need to be illegalized as well since alcohol destroys far more lives than marijuana. Same with all tobbacco products

    We already tried illeagalizing alcohol, it was called prohibition and we found out is doesn’t work

    Government isnt there to protect us from ourselves, thats our job.

    Legalize It!

  8. Mabel says:

    There are so many reasons why it would be better to end prohibition but there are very powerful people with a vested interest in the status quo.
    You mentioned the pharmaceutical industry. They would also loose a lot of money if the medical benefits of cannabis could be exploited.
    The drug traffickers, who are the ones who directly benefit from prohibition, must have friends in very high places.
