REASONS WHY WE SHOULD LEGALIZE MARIJUANA
# Medicinal use:
Marijuana can be used as medicine because it helps to stimulate apetite and relieve nausea in cancer and AIDS patients.
The hemp plant is a valuable natural resource. Legalizing marijuana would eliminate the confusion surrounding hemp and allow us to take advantage of hemp's agricultural and industrial uses.
# Religious Use:
Some religions instruct their followers to use marijuana. Just like Christianity and Judaism instruct their followers to drink wine on certain occaisions, some Hindus, Buddhists, Rastafarians, and members of other religions use marijuana as part of their spiritual and religious ceremonies. These people deserve the freedom to practice their religion as they see fit. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says that the government cannot 'prohibit the free exercise' of religion, and so marijuana should be legal.
IT IS LESS EXPENSIVE TO LEGALIZE MARIJUANA THAN IT IS TO MAKE IT ILLEGAL. WE LEARNED THAT ONE A LONG TIME AGO WITH ALCOHOL. I DONT KNOW I CAN GO EITHER WAY ON THIS ONE. IF IT IS ILLEGAL I PAY FOR IT BY PLACING THOSE PEOPLE IN JAIL AND FEEDING THEM. AT LEAST IF THEY LEGALIZE IT, I GET A CHOICE OF PAYING FOR WEED OR NOT!!??
