Why can,t you face life and function without being stoned? I know some habitual pot smokers and they are brain dead idiots, that's just what we need more idiots! D.C. is full of them now and look how that's going!!

Beer . . .? Can't get enough.

Weed . . .? OH MY GOD NO! NO! NO WAY! JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS! DRUGS ARE EVIL! PUT POTHEADS IN PRISON AND THROW AWAY THE KEY! THE BIBLE SAYS POT IS EVIL.

I think its time to consider it. Take the big profit, gangs, and crime out of the picture. License dealers like booze.

There is no beer in heaven. That's why I drink it here.

The 50 to 65 age group are facing their mortality and they know when they're gone, they won't be drinking beer anymore.

Roll out the barrel, let's have a barrel of fun.

People don't have fun anymore, they just make money, pay bills, and live like tomorrow might be a good day to have some fun.

Tomorrow is 911 and we might get attacked again, especially with Obama banging the war drums, so go have some fun today.

You only live once.

Reality is a joke in murka. Reality is the drug cartels in Mexico will continue to do business as usual and business as usual will make sure that drugs are here for people to buy.

That is the reality.

Yeah, legalizing it really sends a clear message to the kids that it's ok to do. It's not, it's bad enough the youth of America have to grow up watching BET and MTV and all the other garbage thats even on CBS and NBC now days. This world is going to*****in a handbasket.

I like how somebody clicked disagree. So apparently that person thinks that it's ok to send the message to kids that smoking pot is ok. How about instead of worry what to legalize we focus on getting rid of smoking all together. Its fact that cigarettes have been targeting kids for years. Lets worry about enforcing our current law, like speed limits for instance, before we worry about what to legalize.

As Americans, we have the RESPONSIBILITY of making INFORMED decisions. I'm amazed at the level of emotional responses posted. I am not a cannabis user, but medical marijuana use has been proven to help some people dealing with a myriad of medical conditions. I'm not saying everyone should just get high, but for that little old lady down the street suffering from glaucoma, I think she should have the right to grow 3 or 4 plants for personal medical use if it helps her, rather than use my tax dollars to pay for a doctor and a treatment that hasn't offered any relief. Same for the soon to be grandpa going through chemo...if short term use helps deal with the nausea better than expensive drugs, I have no right to stand in the way of him having a better quality of life through treatment. Many herbs have been used safely for centuries,and are a better alternative for some people than pharmaceuticals that often have dangerous or even lethal side effects.

Wow lots have bought into the weed is bad theory. It was once a top grower in the USA until the cotton lobbiests said it would hurt you. Then the government made it illegal. Ya imagine that, back in the old days they had Cotton and Hemp lobbiests and the Cotton thugs won.

Drugs used in medicine are routinely given what is called an LD-50. The LD-50 rating indicates at what dosage fifty percent of test animals receiving a drug will die as a result of drug induced toxicity. A number of researchers have attempted to determine marijuana’s LD-50 rating in test animals, without success. Simply stated, researchers have been unable to give animals enough marijuana to induce death

At present it is estimated that marijuana’s LD-50 is around 1:20,000 or 1:40,000. In layman terms this means that in order to induce death a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in one marijuana cigarette. NIDA-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response

A study published in the British Journal of Cancer, conducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid, this study determined that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids inhibit tumour growth. They were responsible for the first clinical study aimed at assessing cannabinoid antitumoral action. Cannabinoid delivery was safe and was achieved with zero psychoactive effects. THC was found to decrease tumour cells in two out of the nine patient

Prostate Cancer

12.A study published in the US National Library of Medicine illustrates a decrease in prostatic cancer cells by acting through cannabinoid receptors.

13. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine outlined multiple studies proving the effectiveness of cannabis on prostate cancer.

14. Another study published by the US National Library of Medicine determined that clinical testing of CBD against prostate carcinoma is a must. That cannabinoid receptor activation induces prostate carcinoma cell apoptosis. They determined that cannabidiol significantly inhibited cell viability

Pancreatic Cancer

20. A study published in The American Journal of Cancer determined that cannabinoid receptors are expressed in human pancreatic tumor cell lines and tumour biopsies at much higher levels than in normal pancreatic tissue. Results showed that cannabinoid administration induced apoptosis. They also reduced the growth of tumour cells, and inhibited the spreading of pancreatic tumour cells
