This has to be one of the stupidest comments I have ever read, let me explain. Yes, we all do know "what is going on out there".
Point #1 Recreational Marihuana is the Number One Cash Crop grown inside of the United States, an undisputed fact. And if you can believe anything the ONDCP says we import billions of dollars more of marihuana.
Point #2 Marihuana has been used by an estimated 100 million Americans, if there is any harm from marihuana SHOW ME THE BODIES, they would be stacked up outside like cord wood.
Point #3 Marihuana is not, and has never been the problem drug and now 37,000 deaths + per year, the Number One cause of accidental death in 17 states and D.C. as reported by the drug czar, Gil Kerlikowse, Prescription Drugs used recreationally.
Now, considering that over 50 percent of all medical care is paid for by "our government" what that means is you my friend are a dupee, you are paying for a doctor visit, a prescription, and fueling the drug market with product you pay for that ends up in the streets and our kids and grandkids are dying from there use.
We have 5% of the Worlds Population and 25% of the World's prison population, check out the reasons before you tell us "what is going on out there".
