It seems odd that a drug with nothing but negative effects (Tobacco) is legal, but a drug with some medical purposes (Marijuana) and less negative effects, is illegal
The drug war was a fail, it's skyrocketed our imprisonment rates and increased crime.
I don't know why there are still a bunch of people that support the drug war to this day.

Juche: 1 Western imperialism: 0, take that westerners!
Holy fuck, did they add the censors back? Shit!
I think we're 5-10 years away from it being legal nationwide. 60 percent of Americans say legalize it, and some politicians are starting to talk about the failure that is the war on drugs.
Drugs put you and only you at risk, and marijuana doesn't put you at risk. Decriminalize all drugs, but legalize marijuana and spread it around! It has many medicinal purposes and doing it recreationally hardly does any harm at all, except for depositing tar in your lungs and that's only smoking it. All it does is waste a crapton of money and put innocent and good people behind bars.
But for heaven's sakes, get synthetic marijuana off the shelves! Legalize the real stuff so people stop dying from the fake stuff.
"Drugs put you and only you at risk" Utter rubbish, many families have suffered immensely from a member addicted to drugs. It's amazing how so many naive people say it's harmless. Being stoned is just like having a coffee I suppose?

It is actually more harmful than drinking and smoking so i dont understand why everyone thinks it isnt.
@mdmark - It's more harmful if used in the same way as cigarettes. If someone smokes a pack of cigs a day, and a "pack" (let's say 18 joints the size of cigarettes) of weed a day, they'd get sick or develop schizophrenia or destroy their lungs faster on the weed than on the cigs. However nobody smokes that much weed. Smoking a joint a day would be fine in comparison to a pack of cigs a day.
