Many people assume that marijuana was made illegal through some kind of process involving scientific, medical, and government hearings; that it was to protect the citizens from what was determined to be a dangerous drug
You'll also see that the history of marijuana's criminalization is filled with:
Protection of Corporate Profits
Ignorant, Incompetent, and/or Corrupt Legislators
Personal Career Advancement and Greed
These are the actual reasons marijuana is illegal.

Kaycee, I can post studies stating that mj doesn't lead to harder drug use. Most people start on alcohol.
I'm sorry you know some losers that are pot smokers but that doesn't make all stoners losers. I know many successful stoners, doctors, lawyers, executives, teachers..... They just don't advertise so you would never know it.
