It is actually in some states. People get this card and they are allowed a certain amount per day for medical purposes. It's pretty cool actually.
Because certain states make more money off of fines for it than they would off of taxation. In Wyoming (my state), it's far too easy to grow for the government to get their piece on the legal side, so they decide it works better for keeping the cops busy and for having an easy way to boost revenue to hit their quotas each quarter.
Now in some states (i.e. Alaska) it is legal to have a small amount for personal use, and others are beginning to open it up for medical marijuana -- I can honestly say I've never used any of it myself, probably never will, but I still don't see any good reason for it to be illegal.

I personally think it is ridiculous that it's not allowed. But according to polls the majority disagree with me! Surely there must be somebody on here that favors the outlawing of marijuana. Tell me why!
