    This has always been a problem between state and federal governments on whether or not marijuana should be legalized and even though it has been legalized for medical and recreational use in few states it remains illegal on a federal level because of trafficking and other crimes that come along with it. I do not really believe there is a way the federal government can fully legalize this drug because of the other crimes associated with it but it definitely work on the state levels if people are using it in their homes, obtaining it legally, and not harming others in any way. If the federal government wanted it legalized they would have to have full control over its distribution and production, otherwise smuggling and other crimes to get it across borders will never cease because of the profit margin from it since it is still not obtainable at a federal level.

    Personally, I think weed should be legal. There has been so many “pot bust” and the government hasn’t done much to stop them. Why not just make a plant legal that stress relives and cures people?

    In my opinion, laws against marijuana should just be completely abolished. The government is just wasting time and money in their efforts to get weed off of the streets.. It just isn’t possible. And it is even more a waste of time because of the fact of how safe cannabis is and the benefits many people receive from it. There really is no sensible explanation for why anyone should have to spend years behind bars for possessing a piece of nature. I am happy to see the progression of medical legalization in certain states, but there are people in other states with the same problems.. and they could end up in jail for trying to help themselves the same way that the guy on the other side of the state line does “legally” or whatever.

    Weed to me isn’t a drug, its medicine.
