  1. Oh gee oh no. Not marijuana. Such an evil person. (Sarcasm)
    Marijuana possession should not be a crime. Only in the US is marijuana & it’s users crucified for possessing it, processing it, or smoking it.
    Marijuana laws are a financial gimmick created by our government to bring in revenue.
    I’ve been around marijuana my whole life and I’ve never seen an overdose, never seen it ruin anyone’s life, never seen violence as a result of it’s usage. The plant grows all over the Earth & is used by many for cancer treatment, pain, anxiety, seizure prevention, preventing tremors in people, etc.
    The federal government scheduling it as a Schedule 1 drug with no medical purposes is a mockery to our justice system and our scientific research. It obviously has medical uses which are very apparent for those using it. This needs to removed from the Schedule 1 tier and legalized so our great nation can better confront it’s growing opiod crisis with all resources available.
