Hi, I was reading through some of the posts on here on this subject and it seems like a lot of you folks are pro-marijuana legalization to some degree. However I would still like to hear some of your opinions as to whether or not you think marijuana should be legalized. I personally use marijuana and the more i research it, the more i realize what a ridiculous thing is happening in this country and all over the world. I believe that it should be left up to the taxpaying citizens of this country to decide whether or not they want to use it or not. I know parents will be saying marijuana needs to remain illegal in order to keep it out of their kids hands. Let me assure you, I have had absolutely no difficulty in obtaining marijuana in the last 2 years that i have been smoking it; and im a high school student. However, getting cigarettes has proven quite difficult recently due to the new laws about carding minors; isnt this an ironic situation??? Well, you've heard my opinion, so please tell me yours. If you agree with me, please consider spreading awareness about the facts of marijuana, because many people are misinformed. Also, think about sharing your views with your local or state legislators to pressure them to change the laws. If we want to change the law we have to let the government know how we feel. Also, please dont be close minded and disregard my post as a stoner rambling on because it is much more than that. I feel that a great injustice is being done to the people of this country and am sickened by the hundreds of billions of tax dollars that have been wasted on enforcing marijuana laws and arresting peaceful, productive citizens. Thanks for reading this and please let me know how you feel.
