Did I mention cannabis cures cancer? And has no toxic side effects?http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/19/marijuana-and-cancer_n_1898208.htmlhttp://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-09-27/cannabis-like-drug-from-e-therapeutics-tested-in-cancer
Usage will increase. Well usage will increase anyway. Look at the historical data so far : http://www.briancbennett.com/charts/nsduh/marijuana.htmIt has been around since the beginning of time. Humans have receptors for it for a very good reason. It turns out the human body produces endocannabinoids which play a very important role in human physiology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endocannabinoid_systemWe don´t consider serotonin to be a menace to society. Why demonize cannabis? Oh wait - 80 years of lies and racist propaganda! Right, the US government would never lie to it´s own citizens would it? http://patients4medicalmarijuana.wordpress.com/videos/illegal-drugs-how-they-got-that-way-marihuana-history-channel/For this no link is necessary - Google for US Patent # 6630507.Its a 10 year old patent owned by the US government on the curative properties of cannabis.So yes, naive ones, the feds have been lying for decades. For the last to years they have been breaking down 50,000 doors a year and this year alone have murdered over 300 dogs, mostly in drug raids. Oh wait I´m sorry - "unlicensed garden raids". Because after all, 17 states and counting legalized the personal growing of cannabis.These are only the ones we know about (dogs murdered by cops in immoral "pot raids" - not all the murders in the graphic were committed during cannabis raids but the majority were) -https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=495041877181693&set=a.474491999236681.114728.472058059480075&type=1&theaterI know police departments who ask recruits "have you ever tried it". The ones who say np are sent home for lying. I am not making this up. It´s been that way for 20 years now.I know a great many extremely talented electronics engineers, software engineers, technicians, and other professionals who use it. Do I worry about stoned drivers? Nope. Never have. I do worry about drunk drivers that smoke pot though because it´s a bad combination. Personally, I´ve been smoking weed for 30 years. As the Walter Bishop character on "Fringe" says - "a little cannabis before bedtime does wonders". I have insomnia and an overactive brain. I flushed half a bottle of prescription sleeping pills down the toilet 7 years ago when I was in a period of not smoking cannabis. Since I started up again, sleep is a lot easier. I am a legal user under Washington´s medical program and I´m grateful the law won´t change that since I can legally grow my own.Cannabis can not physically or mentally incapacitate a person. A person habituated to it functions like anyone else in society. You can´t tell with most people. I-502 *does* have a controversial DUI provision. There´s no defense for it either. Personally I feel it´s not needed because of what I stated above. However everything I read says that within 3 hours after use a person is legal and safe to drive so I can live with not toking and driving.I think we´ll all be better off.It´s time for a change and 502 has support from law enforcement and a huge section of the public.
