Pot is the lesser of all evils. It was stupid when they outlawed it. We could pay off the entire deficit in our country if it was leagal and taxed just like liquor and cigarettes. Sick people suffer when they would not have to if they would just let it be legal. We have voted two times for medical and won. But the Feds. tie it up in courts. We should all email the white house and ask for legalization. This way they will know how many people do want this legal.

Today young adults have to choose at an early age which side of the law they will be on. 70% are smoking marijuana, and because of the war on marijuana, 70% of future voters will someday win the war on marijuana, and it will be legal to buy, just like alcohol and tabacco products. In my home, and in most homes in my neighborhood, Marijuana is only illegal if you get caught by the police. If you get caught, the police arrest you and are nice to you. They say they are just doing their job. Most of the time everybody pleas not guilty, and they let you go. What kind of war is that....???
