    If it is an opinion based on ignorance then why are potheads the ones mostly pushing for so called medicinal marijuana, why can I pick up a high times magazine and somewhere in that magazine they are pushing it? I seriously doubt jr602az and other potheads gives a **** about medicinal marijuana other than the fact it can be used as a back door to get prescription marijuana for recreational users and to get their foot in the door for recreational marijuana. Personally I think you people should be honest about your motives.
    I've worked in corrections for 30 years. I know all to well the effects of drugs. I am opposed to the use of illicit drugs. However, when it comes to the medical use of marijuana I support it. I know it's benefits when it comes to individuals who are going through cancer treatments. I have servere back pain and was prescribed methadone. That, in my opinion, is a dangerous drug that I will never use again. Can medical marijuana be abused? You bet. So can other drugs. It can also be beneficial when properly prescribed. I'm NOT a pothead!! and I support it legal use.

    Marijuana is great on your stomach. It is a good herb to use as a gentle laxative. Other good pot info, too.

    Re: Miracle Marijuana

    This is also a 'borrowed' comment or post, I honestly believe this is one of the best I have seen out there lol.. Thank You Mike Q.=)

    My marijuana paper. Let me know what you think?(not done)?
    Alcohol poisoning? Perfectly legal as long as your not driving. Killing yourself with cigarettes? Legal! One thing that is not legal as of today is Marijuana. Which have many benefits! Like Cigarettes and alcohol, they can do harm as well, just not as much harm as cigarette and alcohol. Yet we still have laws against marijuana. There are many studies that show that marijuana can actually be a great medicine and good for moderate personal use.
    First and foremost, from smoking alone, it is impossible for a person to overdose on THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the main psychoactive in marijuana. The reason it is impossible, is that a 160 pound man would have to smoke around two and one half ounces of marijuana with in the time span of 15 minutes. That would equal 900 joints! Another big myth about marijuana is that its addicting. Although this is not much of a myth, marijuana is not as addicitive as other intoxicants! Only 9% of marijuana smokers are dependent on the plant. Compared to the 23% of people who drink who are dependent on alcohol and 1/3 of people who have ever smoked a cigarette are dependent on the intoxicant! In 2002 only 1/3 of American wanted the decriminalization of marijuana (34%). Since then pro cannabis groups and sites such as NORML.org have been teaching the benefits of marijuana, and now in 2009 about 72% of Americans call for the decriminalization of marijuana. If marijuana was decriminalized, it wouldn’t be as if you can smoke out in the streets, the decriminalization of marijuana would mean you would just get a fine rather than jail time.
    If marijuana was to be legalized and distributed by convenient stores and local markets, it would open up tens of thousands of new jobs for the public and with how hard it is to get a job in today's economy that is very important. The legalization of marijuana would also lead to the government to save not millions, but billions of dollars. Tax payers spend annually between $7.5 and $10 billion on arresting and prosecuting individuals for marijuana related violations. Only 90% of these arrest were just for marijuana possession only! Another big thing about legalizing marijuana, is that if America distributes it to convenient stores and such, taxing marijuana would bring it a lot more money for government, and in today's time with the U.S. being $11914005088493.48 in debt (as of 10/14/09 2:15 P.M.) taxation on marijuana would be a wise choice. The estimated population of the United States is 307,099,194 so each citizen's share of this debt is $38,795.30. In recent studies it has been estimated that California would make around $1.4 billion if marijuana was to be taxed. Even tho California is one of the United States biggest states studies have shown that at least 30 of the 50 states would make around $1 billion a year on taxation and other states would make between $50 million to $1 billion. If you think about it 1 billion times 30 is $30 billion add the other twenty states, the united states could easily be making a $40 billion profit on the taxation of marijuana!

    I know its long but please take the time to read it
    im in 11th grade.

    "So what"? So that's the reason why the whole issue of legalizing marijuana makes us sick. Marijuana is an extremely dangerous and addictive substance and everyone who uses it is an unsuccessful leech on society. To legalize the substance is like discriminating against drug-free people. Name me ONE non-smoker who supports legalizing weed. You won't be able to.

    I do not smoke and I support legalizing it. In debate, for you, that is known as FAIL.

    Welcome to debate politics forum newbie. I am sure that if you read some of the posts here at dp you will find out that you are wrong.

    I pay for my own weed and I have been smoking it for over 50 years. I am an army veteran with a good conduct medal BTW.

    We are not discussing whether or not he should receive consequences for using marijuana illegally. We are discussing whether or not marijuana should be legalized.

    And...

    Moderator's Warning:
    Miracle MarijuanaAt Debate Politics, you are not allowed to use personal attacks towards another poster. Calling him a "pinko" is not acceptable. Please stop.
