Legalize Marijuana

Enough is enough. Marijuana hurts less people than alcohol and has no withdrawal symptoms, no hangovers and kills less people, in fact no people. It's time it was made legal countrywide. The revenue in taxes would raise funds for the government and bail our country out of it's debt in just a few years. And setting an age limit on it's use would ensure that it is only used by responsible adults. Marijuana is a harmless substance that does less damage to the lungs than cigarettes, which are legal just like alcohol. It's a shame that with all the alcoholism in this country that alcohol is legal for recreational use and marijuana remains solely legal for those who have a prescription, and that's only in a few states. I stand up for the right for people to put whatever they want in their bodies. Using marijuana doesn't doom the user to a life of experimental drug use. Only people who want to use hard drugs use hard drugs, there is no gateway. Some people who find themselves dependent on alcohol could use marijuana and free themselves from the bitter hand of dependence. Plus the industry will bring with it salvation to hard drug addicts who will finally have a way to cut loose without worrying about having drugs cut with god knows what and with varied quality. Plus so much can be made with marijuana; hash, keef, hash oil, edibles as simple as brownies or as elaborate as fetuccini alfredo, bubble hash as well as clothing and paper and so much else. We're almost there, we just need to rally the country to come out of the woodwork and stand united, we need to vote for officials that support marijuana legislation.
