Cannabis

"A new Quinnipiac poll released Thursday found 71 percent of Americans would oppose a federal crackdown on legal marijuana, and 93 percent are in favor of medical marijuana, according to the survey of 1,323 voters nationwide."

Why is the government so opposed to the majority? Aren't we a Government of the people, by the people, for the people? 

Can someone give me a good reason that i can't pick up a pack of cannabis cigs at the gas station around the corner? Why shouldn't cannabis be legalized for everyone?

    Unfortunately, it's currently illegal in my residence.

    Legalizing it will resolve a lot of society cost and unnecessary criminal activity.

    My state is still convicting felons for two time offenders. Got caught a second time and the judge ordered the prosecution to drop the misdemeanor charges and recharge me with a felony, it being my second time. Haven't heard from anyone since then. First time I had a 1/4 oz. Last time I had 1/2 joint.

  • Free markets = free people. If they aren't messing with other people's rights, they have the right to do unhealthy stuff to their body. That's why cigs and beer are legalized too.

    Cannabis is far more healthy than beer or tobacco, do you agree @DavidDebates?

    Probably it's on par with the other addictive substances. Marijuana's main problem is its addictiveness is off the charts. The fact that you can't overdose doesn't make it harmless.

    Speaking from experience, it's not as nearly addictive as even sugar, I mean sure, I won't turn it down if it's offered and I don't have it, but I'm not taking my flat screen to the pawn shop like someone I know who is addicted to pain killers. The government quietly admitted that it cures cancer.

  • @erfisflat , marijuana is a killer. This substance can kill babies and above if not more as well. It's addictive and very dangerous. Some states allow the use of the drug, but you have to remember that it is a lethal drug.

  • The single biggest detriment to the individual or family unit concerning marijuana use is law enforcement. When you make something illegal you put the control of the something in the hands of criminals.

    You'd literally have to smoke a telephone pole sized joint to OD from cannabis. Your statement is unfounded. You been watching reefer madness?

  • There's no reason to keep marijuana illegal, especially with it's proven many medical benefits.

    There's no reason to keep marijuana illegal, especially with it's proven many medical benefits. 
    Yet, despite all the overwhelming evidence showing the many medical benefits, big brother has to protect us from it, by putting us in a cage if we decide to turn away from the pharmacist and get help from the farmacist.
