    Does marijuana help you?

    I would buy it and many others would too

    I smoke Marijuana when I can. It being illegal makes this harder to do and enjoy. I don't believe people should have to go to jail just for using Marijuana/Cannabis because I believe it's one of the Civil Liberties we should have in this country! Our prisons and jails are way overcrowded and the cost to inprison someone is in the thousands. Tax revenue could be used for education of the plants use instead of lock us up and throw away the key just because we smoked a weed! I'm not alone in this. I've read that over 10,000,000 people smoke Marijuana regularly. Our entire nation is ready for this change and 58% are in favor nationwide. I live in Tennessee where a single joint can get you a year in jail which is ridiculous. If you don't see that's ridiculous then your ridiculous! I can't imagine a police officer sleeps good at night knowing he arrested some childs mother and father for smoking a joint! In turn ruining their lives and chances for future employment and maybe even taking away the children they work so hard for and love so dearly. The thousands of jobs that would be created and in my opinion will eventually will be a welcome thing for our struggling sluggish economy. Sure Obama says that so many jobs have been created but he doesn't mention how many were lost because so many went to jail and prison just for pot. I myself would love the opportunity to open a retail Marijuana store in Tennessee, it would be a dream job for me and many others. Not to mention it would probably pay a lot more than my current job. Yes I do believe Marijuana should be legalized and maybe not even regulated so it would be so cheap for us and so bad for street gangs and drug cartels!
