    Has it been changed since I was in school?

    Well, this link indicates that the section in question reads thusly:
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
    Not quite the same, it would appear.

    Yes that last part was how I learned it, so the other one seems way off to me.

    Perhaps it's a "secularized and updated for modern times" version, or something.

    You can see from this that marijuana legalization is obviously a socialist backed movement, since it only bolsters their numbers.

    Or I made all that **** up just now, either way.
    LOL The truth is pot was originally criminalized only because blacks and Mexicans used it and they could be arrested and put in jail where they belonged. I think that reasoning still holds true with some except the injustice has been widened to include all that don't think like them. Their time is ending, and none too soon.

    You're saying that pot was criminalized for bigoted reasons?

    Come to think of it I have no idea what the history of marijuana criminalization is, so for all I know you're right.

    On to a more important question: Why does my spell check not agree that "criminalization" is a word?

    There should be no quantity restrictions on anything that can be bought and sold. Oh, and prescription drugs should not exist. They should be able to be sold by whomever wants to sell them and open to whomever wants to buy them.
