Why marijuana should be legalized

There's much debate on why marijuana should be legalized, especially sense last week marked the 40th anniversary of Nixon's "War on Drugs". Yesterday the bill, "Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011" also known as HR 2306, was presented. The bill was presented by Rep, Ron Paul and Rep. Barney Frank. Though it hasn't been given a hearing because Lamar Smith of Texas is a dick. If you want to know more about this particular matter do a Google search and/or stay tuned to this blog.

Now, how many reasons are there for keeping marijuana illegal? Very few. The reasons that are mostly used for keeping marijuana illegal are just based off of religious and moral reasons and some good old propaganda. How has this affected America? Greatly. You see, a lot of people still think the Amrican government tells nothing but the truth, that's bull shit. The American government is constantly hiding information from the public. They use that to their advantage to manipulate the public into thinking certain laws need to be here, when in fact they don't which is how marijuana was originally turned against the public. This is why we have Wikileaks people!

How many reasons are there for making marijuana once again legal? Many. Marijuana has a death toll of zero sense record keeping began. Marijuana is much stronger now which means it takes less to get high and when you smoke less you get less of the harmful chemicals in your body and more THC, which is what creates the high effect. Many politicians used that reason for keeping marijuana illegal without knowing that it's actually an advantage to making it once again, legal. Now, marijuana isn't just a plant used for getting people safely high. The hemp plant has many uses such as making clothing, rope, feeding live stock, making dry wall and other parts for building homes, fuel, curing cancer, making quickly renewable paper, and Ford even made the body of a car from compressed hemp! The possibilities are endless and more uses for this plant that takes just months to grow compared to 100+ years per tree! There are way more organizations out there for supporting marijuana for these reasons! There's NORML, SAFER, and MPP just to name a few.

Support for marijuana legalization has gone nowhere but up as people are slowly but surely learning the truth about marijuana. These government lies have to stop if the people in the government want to keep their jobs by supporting their own and not taking bribes from big businesses for once. If they (doubtfully ever) pull their heads out of teach other's asses and see the truth about marijuana and understand it for once then the majority of America wouldn't have to rely on the very few politicizations and senators that actually work for the people, not the other way around. If marijuana were to be removed from the controlled substances list then the states could set their laws. The general public has no control (they used to) over the national laws but they have a much larger say in their state's laws. If marijuana were to be controlled by the states then the people could vote in what laws they want implemented and not just 535 in congress.

Thanks for reading and pass to the left.
