Ya know I wonder. How high were our founding fathers when they wrote the Constitution? How stoned was Thomas Jefferson while writing the Declaration of Independence. When George Washington was required to show some ID..did he whip out a quarter? Why for the love of laughing is marijuana not legal? Why do Republicans hate Obama? Oh yes, he's black. The laziest people on Earth represent our government right now. Our government I believe has down syndrome. They can't even develop a website correctly. The IRS just got their GED. Nobody knows anything about anyone. Our government can rob, steel, cheat, lie, launder money, print money, screw everyone, play pretend, promise nothing, and argue who has more skid marks in their underwear. It's amazing how so many of our government representatives went to IVY league schools just to go to work everyday and accomplish nothing. Legalizing marijuana would help everyone forget that it just doesn't matter. Legalizing pot would be the smartest thing the government could do right now. At least it would generate tons of money. Isn't that what they want? I mean it would be silly not too. Why not just make all drugs legal..all drugs!! Portugal did. Crime is down, they're using the revenue to actually help people with their drug problems. And it's working. You know why? Because they don't have a John Boehner, they don't have an Eric Canter. We have a government full of cry babies, and pathetic leadership. We spend billions a year examining why some peoples feet smell like soup. We spend billions a year hiding billions of dollars. We spend billions a year trying to figure out where the last trillion went. We spend billions investigating investigations. It's obvious that Americas leaders are coming to work everyday and thinking about what they're going to do tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes and they just sit there wondering what they should of done yesterday. To me, that sounds like something a pot head would do. But I bet if our entire government was stoned everyday, due to legal pot, they would eventually forget we have a black president and Americas work would get done. Oh, and billions and billions of dollars would be generated. Marijuana has so many purposes. It can make anybody feel better and basically eliminates sickness. The country would be a better place. The drunks can still puke on each other, while the others explore ideas and unite with peace and love. But first we must shoot John Boehner. A relaxed America....who has the munchies. Last but not least...we must warn the marijuana not to persuade individuals to overdose on drugs everybody knows can kill them. If you have a problem with marijuana being legal for everyone...just remember, you don't matter. It's obvious you are completely uneducated and have an opinion based on ignorance and stupidity. Pot....it kills no one.

Plant: any member of the kingdom Plantae, comprising multicellular organismsthat typically produce their own food from inorganic matter by the processof photosynthesis and that have more or less rigid cell walls containingcellulose, including vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, and hornworts:some classification schemes may include fungi, algae, bacteria, blue-greenalgae, and certain single-celled eukaryotes that have plantlike qualities, asrigid cell walls or photosynthesis. (http://dictionary.reference.com...)

Plants we use for food:
  • leaves and stems – celery, lettuce, silver beet.
  • roots – potatoes, carrots, beetroot, cassava, radish, parsnip.
  • seeds – wheat, rice, legumes, ground nuts (peanuts), tree nuts (walnuts, almonds).
I argue that all plants under these categories, that do not grow naturally on their own, or that do not grow enough in abundance, are vitally more important to grow than marijuana because they have the capacity to sustain life, which marijuana does not.

I'm also on the record of taking the position that our government does not have down syndrome; however, they are beyond corrupt.

Trees create more oxygen in their life time than almost another plant does in their life time.

Exactly. If people want crack, they will find crack. If people want heroin they will buy it from someone. Anybody can find any drug they want if they desire. Most illegal drugs are no more harmful than legal substances, such as cigarettes and alcohol, and therefore, drugs should be treated the same as these other substances. Knowing drugs are illegal is part of the excitement of doing them.

Legalization would free up billions of dollars that the government now spends on police, courts, and corrections to wage war on drugs and would produce significant tax revenues. The money saved could then be spent on drug education, drug treatment, and law enforcement initiatives directed at more serious crimes.

We have been losing the war on drugs forever now. I guess that implies there is a war going on, and the people on drugs are winning. Legalize all drugs, who cares about the fools that ruin there lives on drugs, end the war

There are some extremely addictive drugs, such as morphine, that could cause serious problems if legalized. I understand where you are coming from though, I do not see the need to prohibit drugs such as marijuana or cocaine.

Why not just legalize all drugs? Understandably, many Americans fear that with no drug laws, we would have hundreds of thousands of addicts, crack babies, children trying drugs, and other evils. But that's what we have right now.

I'm not against marijuana legalization, but it has been shown that marijuana contributes to short term memory loss. Either way, such a trivial side effect is no reason to prohibit it.
