Medicinal Marijuana: Counterpoint
It pains me to see how passionate the youth of America are in support of the legalization of MJ. You know, maybe it should be used as medicine, maybe it shouldnt be illegal at all, there are plenty of very valid reasons.
But this is so insignificant. How many of you are suffering from a disease that would be helped by MJ (enter vicodin and other effective/purposeful drugs).
Furthermore, there are so many other causes that need to be addressed. Face it, living in America is no doubt great but it isnt anywhere near perfect. What about real issues that are affecting people in a much more serious manner, like poverty, the environment, hell even censorship or problems outside our countries (Canada is in the same boat).
Anyway my problem is this, if the legalization of MJ is anywhere near the top of your list of issues, you should probably take a long hard look at yourself.

if mj were legalized millions would be saved each year from not having so much law enforcement and not so many court cases. I dont think it is the most important issue but i think it whould be completely legal
where does all the white go when the snow melts?
It would save money to cancel medicare, wellfare, and to get rid of the military...Just cause its cheaper to do something doesnt mean it is the smart thing to do.
Conformity, I'll never swallow. The world today full of pain and sorrow. Apathy, I'll never follow.

75% of the law enforcment spent on the war on drugs has now been shitfted to the war on terrorism... still a wacked and pointless job but at least not as many potheads will be busted.
