People baffle me. If you think you beating your Bible has a thing in the world to do with pot being illegal then you really are confused. As soon as the fat cats figure out a way to make their money from it, its a done deal. Studies have been presented from all the way back to 1969 that PROVE Marijuana has thousands of benefits yet people are so ignorant and stuck in the 50`s that they actually believe it`s bad. There nothing bad about it. Most of the people who oppose it either drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes or take some form of prescription drug. Well ALL of those things should be illegal far far far before marijuana should. Here are some facts:⦁ FACTS!!

Safe, clean marijuana dispensaries are a godsend for cancer, anxiety, chronic pain, and glaucoma sufferers. The medical marijuana industry should be encouraged so that vulnerable populations have better, safer access to this amazing drug. Making dispensaries more regulated and tolerated will have a positive ripple effect, as the public perception of marijuana will change. It will become a respectable pharmeceutical product instead of a back alley street drug.
There is no reason as to why we should go to all the effort of encouraging and legalizing marijuana when there are much more efficient substitutes.
Along with the benefits of using marijuana, there is always going to be a negative secondary effect of it on the body. People who use the drug are very focused for the first hour or so, but for the next couple of days they are completely drowsy and zoned out. If someone were to drive in this condition, people could die or become seriously injured.
No, the medical marijuana industry should not be encouraged, because marijuana makes people useless. Every guy that I knew in college that did marijuana was completely useless. They just sat around and thought they were brilliant, but really they did not do anything. Marijuana does not make anything better, and people who think they need to use it should just take marinol.
