Marijuana is actualyl not addictive.  I support legalization for recreational use as well as medical.  It is not addictive, and can be used instead of morphine, a more harmful drug.

[b][color=blue]In my opinion, marijuana is a more natural pain reliever.  It's use as an appetite enhancer and a muscle relaxer is of great importance when used to treat the terminally ill clients.

As for other uses, it should be legal for anyone to grow and use.  It is a natural way to decrease blood pressure.

marijuana... *shakes his head*... Has the US government had its eyes open since the end of prohibition ? I think not. Alcohol and Tobacco use leads to death. Has anyone ever heard of a marijuana related death ? No one i've ever talked to has. Marijuana is no more of a gateway drug than caffeine. In response to Xenjael, marijuana is not addictive. Alcohol and nicotine is addictive. Hell, CAFFEINE is addictive. But do we see those DRUGS on the governments "no-no list"? NO ! People need to start looking at the facts instead of mindlessly following and believing EVERYTHING the government says. 9 out of 10 times, the government is WRONG.

Marijuana is addictive only in a mental sense, the same way sugar, chocolate, and caffeine are addictive. Physically, only a very VERY small percentage of users experience any sort of addiction, but it is there, and it's important to acknowledge that.

The fact of the matter is that marijuana has been proven, with study after study, to be not only relatively harmless, but extremely active theraputically as well. It's an excellent analgesic, and it can be used in the treatment of a HOST of different chronic illnesses.

Legalizing, at the very least, the growing of hemp, would give our nation some very significant benefits as well. Hemp can be used to produce paper that is not only more durable than the current type, but pollutes 1/4 to 1/7 the amount during production. In addition, you can make as much paper with 1 acre of hemp as you could with 4 acres of trees. Hemp grows FAST, reaching a height of 20 feet in just one year of growing. Trees, on the other hand, take many years to reach a height where they can be used for production. A hemp crop could be harvested EVERY year, without significant "de-hemp-forestation" (heh, a new word!)

Hemp can also be used as a biomass fuel source. It converts easily to the type of biomass substance that could be used in alternative methods of energy production. Basically, when you weigh in all of the factors on the energy production issue, you find that if just 6% of america's landmass were used to grow hemp, it would produce enough biomass fuel to replace America's ENTIRE energy supply. Every coal, oil, nuclear, geothermal, wind, and solar power plant in existence today could be replaced, all with hemp!

If the above facts don't absolutely SCREAM "legalize it" I don't know what does.

ok..first off, marijuana is already used medically.  the active ingredient d9-THC in he joint that you may have just smoked is the same thing used in the medication called marinol.  (marinol is synthetically engineered THC).  The question is...why is pot illegal...because it contains d9-THC, but then again, so does marinol.  They both have the same mechanism of action, side effects, and therapeutic effects.  the main difference is one is a pill, the other is part of a plant that is not legal for sale.  remember, any drug can be addictive, and that is not always a bad thing.  some addictions are fed by physical or mental need, others by desire.  what exactly is the problem with marijuana...medical or recreational?  can't really use the argument that it is harmful to your health...so are cigarettes, alcohol, and about 500 other frequently found items in our homes.  my health is my responsibility, if i choose to do something bad for my health, then so be it.  the truth is that the government will not legalize marijuana until they can find a way to make money off of it.  maybe tax it?  fine by me, i'll pay tax on it.  legalize for medical use and RESPONSIBLE recreational use.  (see NORML for definition of responsible use.)

There was never anything wrong with Marijuana. It was the abuse of the drug that was a problem. Marijuana is very useful in alot of medical situations. This drug should be legallized for this purpose only.

The issue here is unambiguous. It is a question whether or not to legalize the medical use of Marijuana. I want to emphasize that this concerns medical use of Marijuana and not its use for other purposes. To resolve the issue we must consider a few significant  questions. First, does it really have medical benefits? Lay people (which most of us are) shoul admit that this particular question is a matter that only medical professionals and the medical industry itself can answer, just as much as they are in authority when it comes to treatments and drugs suited for their patients.

Hey I am just another guest, but I have to say I completly agree with meditate. If you don't know what you are talking about dont talk.  The untrue words you say go to the wrong people creating more people who don't know what they are talking about.  Get informed and then come back and have a discussion.  
       HAPPY SMOKING your AF friend

Well, lets discuss.

Places such as Amsterdam allow Marijuana to be completely legal.  If the US were to allow such a drug to be legal, to both medicinal and recreational, then the amount of users would heighten for the first year or so.

The ability to obtain something that was always shielded from would tantalize the people, however after a certain time this would wear off.  No longer would it be a "Oh noes, look at me, aren't I bad and cool?!"thing to do.  

It wouldn't be a big deal to do such a thing anymore, therefore lowering the cahnce that someone would have the urge to try it.

Personally I dislike the abuse of such products, but hey, its your life.  Live it as you shall.
