Cannabis is not a drug. It's a medicine. God put it here to help us. Think about it, before there was big pharma what did people use for almost everything? Herbs... Cannabis is more of a healing herb. Yes it does have different effects on different people. But alot go and eat 300mg brownies and freak out because that was their first time, so they end up running to a hospital because they was not properly informed on how strong some strains are. I have smoked for 20 years. I own my own construction business, built my own house, have money in the bank, engaged to the love of my life, and I am very healthy and active. I work 12-14 hours a day go home and smoke a joint. Its relaxing, will calm your nerves, any make for a good time just chatting with anyone.. It makes you happy, energetic, and it's better than alcohol. I grew up around an alcoholic and I only drink on them special occasions. I know what alcohol does to people. Tobacco and alcohol should be banned if anyone cared about your health. Noone has ever died from smoking cannabis. I could smoke an oz of cannabis and still be functional. But about 5 jack and cokes I couldn't walk a straight line if I had to. So if people can drink why cant people smoke cannabis? Leagalize it, tax it just let people have the medicine that is not man made. Let us grow our own medicine if that's what we want to do. It's our choice what we put in our body not the government's nor the next guy who posts on this bill.
