Marijuana is one of the most used substances around the world. It has been said to be healthier than drinking and is on a rise in the U.S. with more and more people using it everyday. Knowing that the legalization and taxation of marijuana has the possibility to bring the united states out of our trillion dollar debt, what are your thoughts?Answer Question

I wholeheartedly believe that the classifications and legalities of marijuana and alcohol should switch places.
There is much much clear evidence to support that fact that alcohol has killed many many more people, and endangered many more lives that marijuana ever has or will.
Whether it is ever legal or not though - I will not be smoking it. It supports laziness.

Anon #3 -- It does NOT make anyone feel drunk...that's an entirely different 'buzz' - you got me on sperm production, there is that effect on some men - Makes who get boobs? Men? That's not from pot; that's from becoming a stoner who does nothing but sit on the couch eating ho-ho's!
For some of us; "traditional" pharmaceutical chemicals do not help with our anxiety; or depression. And most of the pharmaceutical chemicals for insomnia make you feel like a half-dead zombie when you attempt to wake up in the morning. For some marijuana is the best 'medical' solution for there issue. The gov't decided a wild growing weed was one of the most dangerous toxins and outlawed it; not because it's actually that dangerous but because of racism and greed; do some research. Belladonna/Angel Trumpets are much more toxic; but how many of you have that growing it in your yard right now??? Think about it...

I am a medical mj pt and advocate for legalization. MJ and it's cousin Hemp are amazing plants and I truly believe it could help our environment and economy if both were legal, taxed and regulated. MJ can be used to treat a variety of ailments and has less side effects than pretty much every other medicine, prescription or over the counter. Hemp has a number of uses and is easier to produce than most of the items it can be used in place of.
It's not the govts place to tell consenting adults what they can do to or with their own bodies.
