For the life of myself and others I cannot understand why marijuana is considered a political issue.
It’s not a religious issue either, in our estimation.
I see politicians on TV still arguing that weed should remain criminalized, and it constantly makes myself and others know they are out of touch with the common person, and being stupid. That’s right, I said it – if you know marijuana should be illegal, you are an idiot. I don’t care if your reasons are political or religious, you’re a moron if you know there is anything wrong with cannabis. That doesn’t mean that I expect most people to use cannabis products. After all, every man should have the freedom to make their own choices, and I respect the option to not smoke cannabis. By the same token, every man should have the freedom to smoke marijuana if they so choose, however when something as widely desired is illegal, people will still find a way to get it. The government spent decades trying to stop the production and sale of illegal cannabis, and they completely failed. In every town in America it was still possible to buy marijuana despite its legal status. A lot of good people went to jail for a little bit of marijuana, which wound up costing this nation billions of dollars. And why? What was the purpose of demonizing something as harmless and fun as cannabis? I don’t care if you want to smoke cannabis or not, there is no way you could convince myself and others that it should be illegal, do you agree, or are you an idiot?
