The money spent trying to defend the US from the assumed ravages of marijuana should be used on issues that would actually benefit the US. People need to realize that marijuana is NOT dangerous and that it should be legalized!

Why is marijuana illegal? i see no reason for it to not be legalized as do soo many other people. The American Government uses the voting system on every single issue that we have: whether it is international or foreign, why can't we have an issue on marijuana for the voters. One of the main reason that marijuana is illegal i think is because the government can not tax it because anybody can grow it in their own home, if that is not a large reason for it, then please give me the reasons. the government might say that it will slow down our economy and make the population be lazy and/or not work. I think the people in our government need to take a look around the world and talk to other countries governments who have legalized marijuana (who are still well rounded economies). I am not saying that people should be allowed to walk around with a pound of ganja in their hands, I am only stating that we should lighten the laws: such as, letting people have up to 10 grams on them at a time because all we need is a little lee-way on this law then maybe more people will see that it is not such a bad idea. I do not know what you people think on this issue but all i know is that i would rather the government starts putting more money on border patrol and on our economy instead of wasting soo much money to keep marijuana( a natural plant which has no health defects and no ingredients at all) out of this country. I understand why other harsh drugs are illegal because they are not natural. If we want to keep weed illegal then why not make alcohol illegal? it is a man-made , mind-changing drug. I dont know about you guys but i have heard of people getting hurt from car accidents where the driver is drunk, but i have not of wrecks caused by someone who is on marijuana.
