So about the argument regarding health problems from weed, weed can't do shit to you unless it's in heavy, abusive amounts. My dad is a guy who obviously isn't right in the head and you'd know this, if you knew him. He always blamed it on ADD from when he was a kid, but then he enlightened me about his childhood a few weeks ago. My dad was an active drug user. Everything under the sun. However, for twelve years, he'd be doing pot and now his brain is FRIED. I'm 14 and I can be more responsible than him.
Really,the only thing that rant is supposed to prove is that weed wont hurt you unless you abuse it.
My dad also told me (not sure if this is totally reliable though) that the reason why the government made weed illegal is because they make so much money from drug busts and fines that they would make less off of taxes? Not sure how reliable that is.
There's also a place in the United States known as Oaksterdam. It's in California and one educated man found all the loopholes in the system, and now the city Oaksterdam is located in is the easiest place to grow, smoke, and sell pot.
