It seems that ‘States Rights’ are only relevant when they agree with whichever Party is in power at the time. It is my understanding that alcohol, and tobacco pose more of a threat physically, mentally, and socially than does marijuana. Marijuana, on the other hand, has medicinal purposes for those with cancer, ptsd, seizure disorders, and other disorders. Marijuana should be legalized by the Federal Government for all states. Government officials who, when presented with proven facts, still choose to believe old, debunked beliefs and ideas should not be in a leadership role. Our government needs to look to the future, and stop living in the past. Our government needs to use scientific data when making such decisions. Instead, they continue to cling to their own personal beliefs, and perceptions based on now debunked studies.
