Why does it seem all Marijuana users are looked at like drug addicts still?


Even with tons of evidence that marijuana is not harmful, and in fact is beneficial for many, many illnesses, people who are marijuana users are still looked at in a bad light by many politicians and people in our country. Is the evidence being ignored? Should people change their opinions when new evidence is brought to life? At what point will marijuana users just be looked at like a norm, or at least in the minimal dislike that is shown towards moderate drinkers and tobacco users?

    Marijuana is addictive but that doesn't have to make it harmful. Please understand for every idiot pot head you see there are plenty of working average ppl getting by you never see. I'm thankful you are at least pro medical. I'm waiting on my state!

    Valid point. No smoke is good for lungs, and the best way to consume any herb is through eating. The only laws in my state say it's horrible both for fun and for medicinal use. Good ole south. We will probably be the last to legalize it for medicinal

    Is "better judgment and planning" something we can reasonably expect from people who would be taking mind-altering drugs in the first place? The whole privaledge of being able to drive a motor vehicle brings with it a need for responsibility.

    Once again, check the facts. More people are killed by drunk drivers than by pot smokers, a LOT more!

    Actually there have been several medical studies following chronic smokers from teen yrs through mid 30's and they found no link between MJ use and depression. Govern. ran studies had prev. "found a link" but independent studies find none.

    There is not a single prescription medication that doesn't have a side effect of possible death. You are forming a negative opinion based on SOME. My medications make me a zombie. Low THC high CBD does not cause laziness or tiredness.

    Your answer reminds me of a post I read on Facebook that said. "If everyone in the world smoked marijuana at the same time, We'd have peace for 3 hours".

    Everything is bad in excess. A lot of people assume that supporters also support drug "abuse". I don't. Abuse is consuming too much. In moderation though it is wonderful for so much.
