    Why is alcohol and tobacco legal and weed not?

    And no, I don't smoke or eat it so that isn't why I am asking.

    A lot of people ask that question. And no one really knows, we just let it be that way.

    While there are many references made to taxation, etc., marijuana has over 400 toxins -- and more carinogens than tobacco cigarettes.  That's a pretty good reason in and of itself.   Also, "a number of studies have shown an association between chronic marijuana use and increased rates of anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and schizophrenia." source: http://drugabuse.gov/infofacts/marijuana.html

    The same source also lists other adverse effects of marijuana use.

    breathe2, try thinking for yourself and not just reading something and pass it along as truth. I've smoked bud for over 40 years and you are full of crap. Facts are simple and facts are true, facts are getting the best of you!!
