Just a thought? We have so many other legalized drugs that are proven scienticly and through popular experience to have bad effects on our health; i.e. ciggarettes, salvia and so forth but they are perfectly legal. However the government does not allow (most of) the US to have anything to do with it, but WHY NOT?Answer Question

Why is Marijuana illegal?
Because this is what our trusted government and journalists told people back in the early 19 hundreds:
“Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.”
“Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”
“Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing”

Because of the wonderful BS campaign that was used to make mj illegal in the first place, thank you Hearst, DuPont and Ainslinger. AND the continuing campaign to keep it illegal, thank you alcohol/tobacco/pharma/timber/cotton lobbys.
Those industries that feel threatened by mj have spent countless dollars convincing our politicians to keep mj illegal.

I know many intelligent, educated and successful people who use mj regularly. Doctors, lawyers, teachers and executives. Y'all probably do to but they don't advertise due to the stigma attached.
MJ prohibition has NOTHING to do with the plant itself and everything to do with bigotry, racism and protecting corporate profits.
