  1. This is great stuff. I fully agree that marijuana should be legal and controlled under laws such as aclcohol. I have recently been terminated from a job that I have worked at for almost 8 years. It was my life and my career and now not only an I gonna have to suffer the loss of something special but so is my wife, daughter and unborn son. The world is twisted marijuana is safer and healthier than alcohol. Let’s focus on the real problems and stop worrying about something that gonna have a positive effect on this world. Last time I checked I’m sure accidnts involving alcohol was over 60%. Accidents involving ” drugs” and marijuana was under 15%. For lack of better words stop crying like a bunch a babies and let’s make changes that will gain more respect from the people. If everyone would stop fighting against one another and learn to co-exist it would be a much better place.
