lets get things straight, cigarettes and alcohol both have more harmful affect than useful. marijuana is scientificly proven to have useful medical purposes. yes it creates a high or stoned fealing depending on the strain, but doesn't alcohol impare you? isn't it just about moderation? or is about drug companys wanting to line their pockets with money and make people addicted to pill popping so the collect more money. All the while the prison system in America is around 70% filled with minor marijuana possesion, this also brigns in tons of money for those who run prison and correctional facilities.
Did you also know marijuana was legal up until the the late 1880' early 1990's. when landowners in California, Oregon and Seattle, that used it's forests for cutting trees used for paper and other purposed, found that hemp was becoming a popular substitute for paper products they pushed to criminalize the product and anything related to it, thus marijuana. This wasn't even a true fight over what's wrong or right, but a pure business decision.
I smoke weed, i'll be honest. I also go to college have a 3.5 gpa, exercise and work 35 hours a week, sometimes its just nice to relax. plus marijuana is more natural for your body than an asprin, tylenol, advil pm, nyquil, etc. The reason marijuana is affective is because of thc, the chemical drug which is found naturally in your brain. that is why humans have reactions to smoking the plant.
Marijuana is not performance enhancing and far from it, it receives a bad rap from false facts and lies to promote other money industries. If people really took the time to educate themselves they would also realize the legalization of marijuana could help with some of our economic problems. I am not promoting the use of marijuana, like everything moderation and a responsible individual is what is needed.
