...about marijuana.

For over 70 years, the US Government has been spreading falsehoods about the use of the plant known as marijuana, prosecuting its users at every turn.
Every year, thousands of people are imprisoned for simple possession of marijuana. These cases clog our court system, use valuable police resources, and waste tax-payer dollars. The federal government even feels it necessary to raid medicinal marijuana facilities in places where the use of cannabis products by the terminally/chronically ill has been made legal by popular vote. Even hemp, a cousin of marijuana with virtually no psychoactive properties is illegal under federal law. On top of all this, the DEA also prohibits the mere study of marijuana to all but one or two researchers and they must use the "weed" that the government supplies them, which is notoriously poor quality.
Since the beginning of the prohibition of marijuana, the government has pumped out propaganda to support their cause. Films like "Reefer Madness" were used to sway an uneducated public into following officials into this "drug war," but the 'facts' they contain have long since been proven inaccurate.

What is left of the government's case against weed?
Scientific studies have shown that marijuana has properties that make it useful in medicine, yet the FDA still claims that it has "no accepted medical purpose."
New studies also indicate that the "gateway theory" on marijuana is not true.
Most people now know that your brain is not going to melt down due to marijuana use, and you can NOT overdose.

It seems to be a question of morality, and whether or not the government should try to regulate it. In the 1920s, our nation attempted to ban alcohol. Because of the ban, violent crime greatly increased due to smuggling practices. Should marijuana be legalized and regulated, it would take the power out of the kingpins' and gangsters' hands. Buying marijuana would no longer expose you to harder drugs via the dealer, and violent crime rates related to drugs would likely be greatly reduced.
Who knows, maybe the taxes it could raise would even help pay for this mess we're in in the Middle East. Whatever the case, it's time for the government to stop telling me what to put in my body.

It's time for a change, and our generation will be the one to cause it. Listen to everything you're told with a grain of salt.

I think the government should not control what you put into your own body. Obviously our country has a huge problem with obesity. But should the government go and ban fatty foods?

All this according to whom?
I can point out quite a few things that have been disproven just by looking at this.

1) Marijuana is NOT addictive.
2) "Impaired Thinking" is a relative and generalized statement.
3) According to studies funded and published by the DEA and FDA, no significant loss of motor functions is noticeable upon cessation of use of marijuana. Basically, quit toking and go back to normal.
4) No woman should use any drugs while pregnant, so that's just common knowledge.
5) THC does not harm genetic information, nor has any evidence ever been presented of physical harm to a male or female's reproductive system due to marijuana.
6) Virtually all harmful effects of marijuana on the lungs/throat can be avoided by using a vaporizer (heats weed below the point of combustion, but hot enough to evaporate the THC and other cannabinoids out of the weed.)
7)Sure, weed has more tar. But you usually share a joint or whatever with other people. You don't smoke anywhere near the quantity of tobacco most smokers smoke. No case of lung cancer has ever been linked directly to weed.

It sounds like you got most your info straight off a government website, which is far more biased than anything I have linked.

What Whale's basically saying, is the human brain is like a series of tubes...
"Abortion is not "choice" in America. It is forced and the democrats are behind it, with the goal of eugenics at its foundation."

-FreeEnterprise, 21 April 2011.

Yup, he actually said that.

Well I know they could, but they shouldn't. It's stupid. It's just giving the government more control over your life. You should be able to put whatever you want into your body. Even if it is bleach.

What, i'm sorry, but this is one of those subjects I see you time and time again trying to argue, and you seem to get more and more wrong as time goes by. You cannot compare a substance such as marijuana, which compaired to alcohol is not as harmful to your body, and is safer to use.

It has been suggested that marijuana is at the root of many mental
disorders, including acute toxic psychosis, panic attacks (one of the very
conditions it is being used experimentally to treat), flashbacks, delusions,
depersonalization, hallucinations, paranoia, depression, and
uncontrollable aggressiveness. Marijuana has long been known to trigger
attacks of mental illness, such as bipolar (manic-depressive) psychosis
and schizophrenia. This connection with mental illness should make
health care providers for terminally ill patients and the patients
themselves, who may already be suffering from some form of clinical
depression, weigh very carefully the pros and cons of adopting a
therapeutic course of marijuana.

In the short term, marijuana use impairs perception, judgment, thinking,
memory, and learning; memory defects may persist six weeks after last
use. Mental disorders connected with marijuana use merit their own
category in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
(DSM) IV, published by the American Psychiatric Association. These
include Cannabis Intoxication (consisting of impaired motor coordination,
anxiety, impaired judgment, sensation of slowed time, social withdrawal,
and often includes perceptual disturbances; Cannabis Intoxication
Delirium (memory deficit, disorientation); Cannabis Induced Psychotic
Disorder, Delusions; Cannabis Induced Psychotic Disorder, Hallucinations;
and Cannabis Induced Anxiety Disorder.

In addition, marijuana use has many indirect effects on health. Its effect
on coordination, perception, and judgment means that it causes a
number of accidents, vehicular and otherwise.

TKD: How does someone smoking a joint hurt anyone but the smoker of the joint? We're talking about nothing other than the smoking. No car accidents, indirect effects, etc.
