Marijuana Stamp by ThatMonster Marijuana Stamp by ThatMonster
fav if used

Pretty much everyone who thinks that cannabis should stay illegal doesn't know anything ABOUT cannabis, lol.
The CLEAR party website has a lot of information on the subject, and this is a decent read on some of the benefits of legalising marijuana.
Edit: Here is a REALLY good read and you should definitely check it out whether you disagree, agree or are neutral!
For those who are TL;DR
> Marijuana has a huge amount of medical benefits.
> Hemp is valuable and cannot even be smoked.
> Pot is a whole lot safer than alcohol and tobacco, which CAN kill you. It's safer than CAFFEINE.
> Prohibition has failed to stop its use anyway and creates more dangers than having it legalised would.
> Being legal, it can be taxed and have an age limit (like alcohol and cigarettes), preventing underage exposure.
> Legalisation of marijuana = empty prisons of unnecessary prisoners who have done nothing wrong.
> In places where pot is legalised or decriminalised, there is a significant (read: large) drop in crime rates.
> Think of when alcohol was illegal (and then legalised)
Did I miss anything?

note:
i understand and accept if you disagree but if you wish to make a debate please do so maturely and do your research thank you
no "well my friend's friend's uncle's dog's best friend died from weed" oh my god

i like to have polite conversations. no need to be rude, no matter your opinion. :thumbsup:

Women in the past have used it during pregnancy to help them with nausea and pain. The kids didn't have an addiction to it when growing up. Also your bones have cannabiniod receptors. When you use weed it actually strengthens your bones. Now think of this, natural pain killer that doesn't strain your liver, heals and strengthen bones, can be used while pregnant. If I were a part of a huge company that makes money off of people being sick I'd be terrified of this being legalized. We can't let big corporations own it.

I completely agree with the idea of legalizing marijuana. I also believe that we could possibly use genetic modification to limit THC in the plant itself because I think a major issue with it is the fact that the THC can cause problems when it gets in the body (I'm sorry if I'm wrong with that statement).

We sadly haven't done much good with genetic modification. The only crops that even have slightly higher yeilds are soy and cotton. But thanks to this we spray less pesticides but more herbicides than ever before which ends up harming the soil. Not to mention GM foods are banned in other countries and even more countries are banning more and more GM foods. I just don't trust them. Also it has many medical properties it's just better to leave it be.

Understandable, maybe it is a better idea just to leave it the way it is.

You could say that weed is not a drug, but a plant. That's actually true, but guess what else are plants? Cocaine, Opium, Scopolamine, and Yage. And it's true that marijuana and hemp have a lot of practical uses, like medicine, paper, rope, fabric, fuel. But when it comes right down to it, all we truly want to do with it is smoke it without worrying about getting busted by the pigs. Then again, if you're baked golden, you're probably incapable of worrying about the po-po anyway, because the main reason we do so is to drop our worries and have a good time.

I 100% agree with you. The government makes marijuana illegal because they thought it was dangerous, even though its not exactly that dangerous and they make cigarettes and alcohol legal but even though those two cause huge health problems so why not make those two illegal?

My mum always smoked it at festivals and would take us. I don't see a problem and have even been smoking it myself since I was 15. My sister however, is completely against all drugs, she doesn't even like alcohol!

You do know that if it is only legal medicinally, there will always be that ONE person who would fake something just to get the good medical marihuana, and then people who actually NEED it won't get taken seriously, right?

Also, if you legalize it completely, it will actually be SAFER to use because then you would not have to go to a drug dealer who could lace it with some more addictive substance just to make more money.

Psst, lacing weed with harder drugs to get people addicted is not actually a thing. There are very few drugs you can even lace pot with without it being 100% obvious, not to mention harder drugs are way more expensive.

Did you know that Alcohol actually is more dangerous than weed?
So, why is Alcohol legal while weed isn't?

Aspirin is also more dangerous than LSD and is legal, how bout that?

If you think things are illegal for any reasonable reasons (like how alcohol is bad for you and weed is safer) you are naive.

not saying YOU in particular

Then you don't understand the reason why it's illegal. It's because the pharmaceutical companies can't make money off of it. They made it illegal, because they'd rather you spend lots money on pills that are 10x more likely to kill you than spend that money on a harmless plant (marijuana).

Marijuana really helps me with my anger problems. It's legal for medical use here in Georgia, but it really should be legal everywhere for recreational and medical use. There's no reason for it not to be. It can't do much harm to you at all. The worst thing that can happen (and this only happens very rarely) is getting bronchitis. All the myths about it causing lung cancer and making you under achieve are complete asinine.

Legalizing drugs lowers the threshold for (possibly stupid and uneducated) people to try said drugs.

I completely agree that marijuana should be legalized.
I don't want to use it myself, as I have no need to use it, but I can see all the benefits that other people could get off of it.
I'd rather live in a house where all my roommates are marijuana users, than live in a house where all my roommates are alcoholics.
I think the main reason it is still illegal in a lot of places, is that pharmaceutical companies and oil companies would lose profit if marijuana became 100% legal.

So yeah, I'm using this stamp, if you don't mind.
