    Does marijuana help you?


    I am a 20 year old college student and have smokeed weed for only 1 year. Before i started i was opposed to smoking pot because i never took the time to learn about it. It is not an actual drug but labeled as one by our government and that's wrong and unfortunate. It's far less harmful than cigarettes and alcohol yet people are jailed and fined daily for it. It makes no sense to me why the government still has banned this substance in most of the country when taxing it alone would bring so much money to the country. I smoke on occasion and i do it for the high. I feel relaxed and mellow and even though that may not be the case for everyone, that's how it is for me. I will never smoke cigarettes and find marijuana more enjoyable than drinking alcohol. No bad hangovers, or throwing up. Weed brings people together and instead of being loud and obnoxious from alcohol, I enjoying having deep conversations with my friends. I purchase my weed from dealers around town and must rely on the word of the dealers. I never really know what i'm going to get sometimes. It would be much safer if i could just make my purchase at a shop here in Wisconsin. The Pros for legalization at beneficial to our country and the cons are no different if not safer than tobacco or alcohol. I'm a responsible young adult and know what i'm doing. This substance does not make me stupid or will not ruin my future. Those in the government who are against weed and drink or smoke cigarettes are extremely hypocritical and should take a step back and reevaluate there take on the substance. When it comes to the raw BUD form of marijuana i support it 100%. regardless if marijuana becomes legal in that country i will partake in using it. I'm just waiting for the day the government wakes up and realizes how unfair and ridiculous they are all being. Zero deaths caused by marijuana use and millions recorded from alcohol and tobacco use. It just makes no sense.
