why the government doesn't want to legalize marijuana?
Do you think marijuana should be legal?
it should definetly be legal, i'm still trying to figure out how it is illegal but alcohol isn't. personally i'm sick of governments telling me what i can and can't put in my body but that's just me.
Marijuana is kept illegal under the guise that it intoxicates people. People who support marijuana being illegal basically believe that people should not be allowed to ingest the plant because it intoxicates them. Of course... this is merely the surface, its the mask to divert from the real reason.
The government and corporations don't care if you get intoxicated. Hell, they welcome it with open arms! People drive themselves nuts wondering why such a harmless plant could stay illegal while things like alcohol and nicotine are legal. The answer is Hemp.
There are strains of marijuana that contain no THC whatsoever but no matter they are still illegal in the USA. These strains of the plant are used to make Hemp and Hemp seed oil. Since Marijuana is federally illegal no company or corporation can use Hemp for industrial purposes. In short, the products made from Hemp are of superior quality and durability which boils down to less consumption from the masses (eaters) and a big fail for hopeful recurring profits.
Hemp can be made into: plastic, food, paper, building materials, fuel, and clothing. Each of these products made from hemp are far superior then anything on the market. They are better quality and last longer which = loss profits. Marijuana is easy to grow, it will grow in almost any climate in all 50 states. It needs no pesticides and can grow resiliently even with minimum water.
The people who founded this country used Hemp. The constitution was drafted on hemp paper which lasts hundreds of years without decomposing or yellowing, Instead of cultivating hemp for paper we deforest our country hurting the environment blow by blow. Why? Money. Greed. Loss of profits. Loss of control.

Is there any good reason why marijuana is illegal? The reasons why it was outlawed in the first place is totally ridiculous. Pot does have medical uses -ask anyone going through chemo, nausea, etc. Queen Victoria ate marijuana baked in pastries for mental cramps in the mid 1800's. By legalizing...

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!
