  • Legalized for tax revenue. After legalization the government also changes it's tune on the detriments of smoking the stuff and all of a sudden it becomes beneficial. Lots of health benefit promo going on in Canada right now as the government legalize it. If the government actually CARED about health benefits of anything they would ban alcohol but they do not as it is too profitable to them and their friends.

  • My wife's Dad had cancer. With cancer, they often get very nauseous and lose their appetite. It gets so bad, it can be life threatening. The single best drug for that situation is weed. We should just let those folks have it. Would end a lot of pain and suffering.

  • Well… It's 2017 and I feel like that hunger towards legalization is dying down across the US…. Sad to see that. Especially with Jeff Sessions pulling strings.

  • Monsters, alcohol, and tobacco are all more harmful than smoking a good old joint. Thats why its hilarious when people whine and complain about the availability of marijuana.

  • Fake News! Shame on you!

  • This is EASILY explained. This study is bogus and I can tell you how. They are looking for cannabis in blood, which stays around for 30 days. They then use these drug tests to say “this person was intoxicated because we found pot in their blood”. Alcohol is gone in 12 hours, while pot takes up to 30 days. If someone smokes once a week, and they wreck their car, of course they will test positive for THC. This is propaganda and the media is not doing due diligence by doing a full report.

  • On a serious note, alcohol has killed more people than any marijuana user, yet the drug alcohol has bee legal and taxed like any other commodity. So why did the law discriminate against the use of  marijuana, was it purely on the grounds of, a lack of research?
