I’ve had severe migraines since i started my early years of school. I tried smoking pot when i was 15 and it helps my migraines tremendously! I stand up for legalization of marijuana both recreational and medical. I know georgia passed this for cannabis oil use not long ago. I don’t understand the sense of having beer and cigarettes legal but the use of marijuana is not? They all make you feel a type of way. I rather be smoking something that i know wont kill me than smoke or consume something that could ultimately cause cancer or liver damage. Smoking marijuana makes me feel a better and more energized person. God wouldn’t have created this natural herb and it wouldn’t be in the bible if he didn’t want people to use this in a good way. I think all americans should be able to choose if they want to drink alcohol or smoke pot. Just because you legalize a drug doesn’t mean everyone’s going to start smoking it. It will make society a better place and people won’t get there lives and dreams shut down because they consume something that makes them feel a better person. Let the people have what they want but put regulations on it so it doesn’t become an out of hand situation just like you did alcohol and cigarette’s. Alcohols a drug and you see people 18 and under using it? If you have other drugs legal at a certain age then you cant hold back on a biblical herb that the man we all come from created. Thats like telling your sons im going to the store to just by popsicles and candy for only 1 of you… Its not fair and last time i remembered we were free… I dont feel very free when i cant even sit at home and smoke a joint to cure my migraines and free my mind of stress. This needs to stop.. Legalize it for all uses because if you dont then people like me will keep fighting and it will be a problem that will never be solved. Help the law enforcement officers who have to deal with this kind of stuff all the time. Free a lot of spots in the jail and prisons around my area. Let people live there lives happily and not have to worry about failing a drug test. You cant be a free citizen without actually being free. Help me and my fellow peers to get this point across.
