For all you ****s supporting the legalization of weed - please remember to stand up and take responsibility when someone you know gets killed by an impaired driver; as has exactly happened with alcohol.

Why can't you people stop fighting?
people come here looking for facts about President George Washington,
not a comment war about weed. Marijuana can help fight some types of cancer, but some doctors associate inhalation of it with other forms of cancer. Both sides are right.
God put it here for a reason, and it's a person's right to decide what they want to do with it. whether they use it as medicine, structure or material, or recreational drugs. if they are using it, arguing with them about it over the internet most likely won't make them stop.
I know you all have strong opinions on the matter, but please think before you post.
by the way, i'm only thirteen, and i seem to be one of the very few mature people on here. i also seem to be the only one who can spell properly. Why can't you people use spell check?

This is a funny argument. If your logical you can identify the real reasoning for cannabis to be illegal. 1st The government dosnt want to make it legal cause it would be nearly impossible to track all sales (the government would lose money). Also it has many, many, benefits. Not only medical use but also can be used for structural and material usage (the government would lose money). Now why is cannabis illegal, while cigarettes a perfect. Well because cigarettes arnt an all natural substance, it can get you addicted therefore they make money off of it. It causes cancer and all other types of problems. Usually heavy smokers wander off into other substances, alcohol, cocaine, (all which were legal at times). Now tell me why cannabis is illegal. Because its efficiently beneficial the the environment and society.

Dear Smart Person,


About.com is known for questionable content. Regular people write whatever they feel writing. I am saying their content is not backed with modern scientific research. I hope Google will stop indexing their website.


For example lets consider this sentence on About.com website:

Findings so far show that the regular use of marijuana or THC may play a role in cancer and problems in the respiratory, and immune systems.



That is absurd because if you visit National Cancer Institute website you will see that they use marijuana to help cancer patients:

http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Support/marijuana

That is U.S. National Institute of Health and they are very strict what they put on their website. European group of scientists discovered that marijuana is not just reliving symptoms of cancer but it can also help cure the disease.

God didn't create weed either. Mankind grew weed, pot, or whatever you want to call it.

For the guy who thinks he is so great at sports and smokes weed, you are a complete ****.

Marijuana back then was grown as a soil fertilizer and not for personal uses.

If you think smoking pot has no long term effects, you are completely oblivious. Visit this website, and if you can read, you will realize the effects of smoking marijuana: http://alcoholism.about.com/cs/pot/f/mjp_faq14.htm
