- Report of the British Police Foundation March 2000


"Estimates suggest that from 20 to 50 million Americans routinely, albeit illegally, smoke marijuana without the benefit of direct medical supervision. Yet, despite this long history of use and the extraordinarily high numbers of social smokers, there are simply no credible reports to suggest that consuming marijuana has caused a single death. By contrast, aspirin, a commonly used, over-the-counter medicine, causes hundreds of deaths each year."
- DEA Administrative Law Judge Francis L. Young


"A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly fifteen hundred pounds of marijuana within about 15 minutes to induce a lethal response... In strict medical terms, marijuana is far safer than many of the foods we commonly consume. For example, eating ten raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death."
- DEA Administrative Law Judge Francis L. Young

You know making marijuana legal can possibly save many peoples lives but alot of people dont understand that they think that we smokers just want for the buzz and those people who believe that dont like to be told other wise. I smoke marijuana to ease my BACK PAIN, KNEE PAIN, HEART PAIN, VISION, DEPRESSION, ANGER MANAGMENT, AND TO CONTROL MY SKITSOFRANIA. its not always about the buzz. - ME

That is an excellent point. And even if people want to smoke it just to get high, they should have the right to to. I believe God put this plant on the Earth for the benefit of all mankind ( Meaning both the medical benefits as well as the mental and spiritual). In my opinion, declaring a war on marijuana is saying "Yes, he did put it here, but I think we know a little more than he does".

Traditional belief is to blame. If people never knew about prohibition, and became educated on the plant and its uses, this plant would most likely be worshiped.

marijuana is a plant/herb that god put on earth. it is NOT a drug. i am 33yrs old an just found out i have a first stage cancer an bipolar manic depressive disorder. their cure...effexor. an antiphycotic antidepressant. i dont nor will i ever believe in taking MAN MADE drugs. but becauce of rich people who think they are better than god i have to. i cant afford a plant that god put here. i use it for anxitiy/panic attacts, cramps,headaches,muscle aches,eating disorder,bodypains and to help with sleep. in my belief it is the best medicine for much of everything. people born 100yrs ago are out living people born today, then they didnt have all this man made b.s crap. now you got 9yr old girls with boobs bigger than mine having heartattacks an 7yr boys having strokes playing football. whats wrong with that picture???

Schizophrenia...that's how's it's spelled. I don't even have it and I know that. If u had it, wouldn't you know how to spell it at least a little bit. Pls do research before u even act like u know what it is. Marijuana does help with bipolar, I know that much.
