Thoughts about pot legalization

Postby xdangerousxdavex » Wed Jul 08, 2015 12:00 pm

I wonder how pot can kill or slow down cancer or AIDS. Those who decided to legalize pot gradually (as it goes now) definitely wanted federal-level legalization for recreational use some day or other. So, when marijuana was first allowed for medical use, the government knew that it would be finally legalized countrywide? Can’t understand such policy. Many people got addicted to drug they didn’t want to try some time ago, many people served years of their lives in jail, many people serve their time in jail right now.

Legalization would prevent this.

Pot would've been legalized and heavily taxed for years if it could fight or cure cancer or AIDS.

Pot screws up your life because of all the legal BS attached to it, not its actual use.
The hardest part of doing nothing is knowing when your done.

You know what else is profitable? Recreational marijuana.

I have no idea, I can't get that 'recreational use' feeling. Weed always makes me paranoid. As far as I know it also triggers latent schizophrenia. I don't want to see everyone becoming schizophrenic so better keep it illegal.
