Cannabis use is safe, natural

On March 17, 1999, the National Institute of Medicine reported a groundbreaking study that concluded that everything that our government has been telling us since 1937 about cannabis has been a lie.

Cannabis is a safe and natural herb.

It certainly does have incredible medical benefits that far outweigh any health risks. It’s time to end “Reefer Madness” once and for all. There is no good reason to put people in jail for using the safe and natural herb. Unfortunately it’s very hard to break down the walls of bad propaganda.

Cannabis has been given a bad reputation that it does not deserve. For some reason, the media reports only negative things about cannabis and jokes about good things like medical cannabis and industrial hemp. Our nation would be much better off of cannabis was legalized, taxed and regulated.

Adults should not be penalized for using cannabis. There are far too many people in jail for using this plant. Since alcohol is perfectly legal for adults to use for medicinal, industrial and recreational purposes, it seems very unfair to come down so hard on people who choose cannabis.
