@ Axiom: I don't care honestly, I'm not being arrested by a law. I'm not being judged by a law. I'm not holding a gun on a cop telling him to search my car, nor is a law. A law can't prove a cop smelled pot. The cop has full control over this.
Tobacco and alcohol are two different things. Alcohol has its many restrictions and consequences if abused.
Tobacco has undeniably been linked to a multitude of cancers, heart problems, strokes and reduced blood flow to sexual organs (aka impatience). Alcohol has a long standing history of liver disease, brain damage, a number of other huge and permanent side effects.
And why should it be legal? The argument that the drug cures diseases while it promotes creativity, open-mindedness, moral progression, and a closer relationship with God (or w/e you pray to) sounds incredibly foolish. Particularly when the public image of a marijuana user is that of a loser who risks arrest and imprisonment so that he or she can artificially invoke an endorphin release.
You're basing this on what? The fact that you haven't done any research on this yourself? Chocolate makes us feel relaxed and prevents a number of cancers (but the link I posted will get to that)
People arguing that pot is good for you always go to the "many clinical studies that result in success." It's odd that I can never find any..Oops, guess you're sources are wrong.More on the guy who just proved you wrong in one speach
Next time you're at the doctor's office, ask him personally what he thinks.
Edit: Before you say "lol there is an asteric, that means it isn't right, lol!":Jiang W. et al. J Clin Invest. 2005 115(11): 3104-16
Though it seems you'd rather not listen to respected scientists and actual evidence, so you can go ahead and believe what you will, science claims another victory in the war against ignorance.
