      Drug education is vital. Misinformation and lies are optional. There has been a 40% reduction in tobacco usage without locking up a single person. Tobacco is as addictive as heroin which is widely known yet… Education ALONE brought this reduction. Stop jailing non violent drug abusers and get them real help. Use does not equal abuse. Every person that drinks is not an alcoholic. Please, teach people the truth and stop using lies and scare tactics. As the stats show education is key not fear.

      To expand on what I posted above….When people get face to face with these drug war supporters why is it that I never hear them ask this question. “Tobacco, something you can get anywhere in the world has seen a staggering 40% reduction is use despite the fact that it is well known be as addictive as heroin yet, not one single person had to go to jail to accomplish this incredible feat. With that said how can you justify continuing this failed policy when we can see that simple education is all the is needed and that that prohibition is nothing more than a middle man that was never needed in the first place.

      I HAVE M.S. and marijuana helps with many of my symptoms! Please help to make it legal in my backwards state of Mo. M.S. has many painful and unnerving aspects and I’m on a fixed income so the cost is great but when I CAN I get some it helps me more than the pain patches I currently use Thank You Jeff

      I personally think that THC is a great medicine that truly does help with the multiple if not every problem that society has presidented to its own personal in society. If you truly believe that you are the perfect person you are wrong. Wither or not you want too accept the fact that yes if you are religious youusfr have sinned in some sort of way or if you are not a religious person yes you have broken the law in some shape or form that this devil plant that which too most of society thinks as is actually a great medicine that does help. I have PTSD for those who do not know what that means, it means post traumatic stress disorder. I have been deployed too Iraq twice, yes i lost friends but that is not from my deployments it is from the fact that i was sexually abused as a child. Medical Marijuana has helped me beyond what any person has ever been able too think of. If you want more info on how this plant that naturally grows on federal army post’s has actually helped me email me, camden.rossi@yahoo.com, if you plant that has grown on thos plant that we all need
