The United States Informative - why is weed illegal - why is weed illegal?
Im just looking for an answer as to why weed is illegal? Does it hurt anyone? It seems like all it does is provide an outlet to people who need help with pain to relieve it. Isn't that what we all strive for, a lack of pain? It seems now a day we all are seeing people that are battling with perscription pain killers that are very addictive. These numb them and relive pain and we as a society spend millions on them. How is it that these drugs that also contain mdma, and antioxident that is also in extasy, which eats at the brain are legal here in the States? Just because a corperation spend years and billions of dollars to create it doesn't justify it as a legal substance. However marijuana is just grown, all natural, no worse even better than tabacco, yet we can legally buy tabacco at age 18. I just want to know why? I also want to know why there isn't more people asking the same question. When i see my fellow friends and family hooked on pain killers because of an accident or pain problem I can't help but want to look for an alternative. However, its there in front of our eyes and we've let a stereotype sheild us from it. I just want to know why?
