Let me let my friends tell you about weed:
Snoop Dogg to White House: Legalize Pot
Lots of celebrities want to meet the president and they often come with their own pet requests: Sign this or that, take a picture with my kid, how can I steal a hand towel from a White House bathroom?
But Snoop Dogg wants something different. The rapper (real name: Calvin Broadus) has been a longtime advocate for the legalization of marijuana (and a frequent user of it) and spoke to Hot 99.5’s Toby Knapp about the subject and how he might convince President Barack Obama to support a change in the country’s drug laws.
“Before I even said ‘Hi’ to President Obama, I would change the aroma of the room.…And then we could start conversing after we had that aroma change. You know what I’m talking about?” (transcript via Jezebel).
Snoop also proposed to have rapper Wiz Khalifa do the same, adding, “They legalized alcohol, they legalized tobacco. What is it gonna hurt to legalize this medicinal, medical marijuana that’s used for purposes of cataracts?”
Obama is opposed to the legalization of marijuana.

It's ridiculous the government tells you what you can or can't put into your own body, I've always thought. Obviously things like disorderly conduct and public intoxication should be dealt with accordingly, but if you want to enjoy substances in the comfort and safety of your own home in a responsible manner, I don't think it's the government's business to prevent you from doing that.
Unrelated, but I also think the whole 21 to drink thing in the U.S. is ridiculous. If by 18 your government judges me as fit to go to war and die (or if I'm unlucky, live and acquire combat-related PTSD) as a pawn to fulfill your agendas, then by golly I'm fit to down a shot of vodka with that.
I hate it when people complain about the crime rate ad how high it is (no pun intended).
I mean, drug laws alone are responsible for most crimes. If drugs were legal, they would lose their ciminal status, and our crime numbers would see a reduction of about 50%. Cigarettes are legal, no one goes to jail for smoking cigarettes. If tobacco was criminalized tomorrow, people would go to jail for doing nothing more than smoking a cigarette, thereby increasing the crime rate.
Haha omg, i wish it existed near where i live !!!!!
Marijuana Vending Machine: Autospense Marijuana Vending Machine Debuts In Santa Ana
Posted: 04/24/2012 12:35 pm Updated: 04/24/2012 7:18 pm
First came the cupcake ATM, now we have it's nefarious counterpart -- the marijuana vending machine.
The self-contained "Autospense" machine by Dispense Labs was recently unveiled in Santa Ana. "I think there is a place in society for medical marijuana," company founder Joe DeRobbio told the OC Register. DeRobbio has taken it upon himself to solidify that place.
Each machine requires a registration card, a pin number and fingerprint recognition to be operated by a customer. Highly sophisticated security measures protect these machines from being tempered with or broken into. The medical marijuana inventory is approved by SC Laboratories.
Dispense Labs believes that the high business standard to which these machines are held legitimizes the current market. Autospense machines are available for rent, only to pre-qualified dispensaries.
UPDATE: 5:30pm -- Joe DeRobbio and Dispense Labs were served a cease and desist notice by a rival marijuana dispensing machine, Medbox, Inc., for violating its federal patent (7,844,363 B1). Angelique Dolan of MedBox told The Huffington Post that a lawsuit is in place.
You can't die from Marijuana.
It grows your brain cells
It kills cancer cells
Saying it's illegal is like saying God made a mistake
It's not a drug. It's a herb. From God's nature.
Simple as that.
But smoking it everyday is lil bit screwed.. Just hold the balance in it.
This has nothing to do with religion. Religion only weakens arguments about stuff like that because there are a lot of people who aren't religious (on both sides) and won't take you seriously, rightfully so, to be honest.
It's just a matter of people being incredibly uneducated, stubborn, hypocritical and sometimes, flat out ignorant and stupid, who don't support legalizing something as harmless as pot yet support and consume other way more dangerous and legal substances like tabacco, alcohol and others.
It's about pointing out how uneducated and hypocritical they are, not about making a religious argument which is completely irrelevant and very weak, in my opinion. Try showing the economical benefits of legalizing pot to someone (who's an atheist, mind you), don't tell him about Jesus and stuff like that. I'm sure he'll take you more serious then.
Just to make it clear, I have nothing against religion. Everybody had the right to believe in whatever they want and I respect that. I just think religion shouldn't be mixed in with politics and stuff like that. There's a reason why a separation of state and church exists and should exist.
Believing in a supreme being is fine with me, if that's your thing then so be it, but don't try to make an argument using that belief about what should or shouldn't be legal or illegal. It's not gonna be very effective.
The brain cells and cancer arguments are way better, along side with the economical related arguments. Those are the way to go, if you want people to take you seriously.
Just a friendly advise, cheers!
MAKE POT LEGAL!

Netherlands judge backs cafe cannabis ban
A judge in the Netherlands has upheld a new law to ban foreign tourists from entering cannabis cafes.
While soft drugs are tolerated, there is growing concern at tourists visiting just for drugs, and foreign dealers selling illegally at home.
The ban is due to start in three southern provinces next month, and go nationwide by the end of the year.
A group of cafe owners argued at The Hague district court that the ban was discriminatory against foreigners.
Under the new law, Dutch residents will still be allowed into the cafes, as long as they have valid identification, or possibly hold a new "weed pass", which is also being debated.
There are about 700 coffee shops, as they are called, in the Netherlands. The cultivation and sale of soft drugs through them is decriminalised, although not legal; police generally tolerate possession of up to five grams of cannabis.
A lawyer for the coffee shop owners said he would immediately lodge an appeal.
Michael Veling, a spokesman for the Dutch Cannabis Retailers Association, is among those challenging the government plan.
"It is going to cost me 90% of my turnover," he told the BBC World Service. "That is a very good reason for anyone to oppose any plan. Second it puts our customers in a very difficult spot, because why do you have to register to buy a substance that is still illegal?"
The BBC's Anna Holligan in The Hague says the nationwide ban is being strongly opposed by the Mayor of Amsterdam, Eberhard van der Laan, because around a third of the city's tourists visit to smoke cannabis in the cafes.
If the coffee shop owners lose their case they say they will take it to the European Court of Human Rights, on the grounds that the Dutch should not be allowed to discriminate against people on the basis of where they live.
The moves are part of a tougher approach to drugs introduced by the coalition conservative-led government, elected 18 months ago.
In October strong cannabis was reclassified as a hard drug, amid concerns that it has a psychotic effect on some users.
The move forced cannabis coffee shops to remove the more popular stronger varieties from their shelves.
In November the city of Maastricht brought in a coffee shop ban for foreign tourists from all countries, except Belgium and Germany, from where the majority of foreign customers come.
Well, cannabis is not fully legal anywhere, not even in Netherlands. So that wouldn’t be a problem for most people but I know what you mean
"It is going to cost me 90% of my turnover,"
Okay what about me saying: Making cannabis illegal is like saying nature's wrong?
Just to let u know Im more spiritual :b
