    i actualy agree with this whole heartedly, having seen what alcohol and tobacco do to the body and what alcohol itself does to people when they consumer too much i DO believe that marijuana is a much safer alternative. it would actually bring in a lot of money that would aid the state of California in pulling istelf out of the slump we are in. marijuana, while some may call it a gateway drug to other worse things, if it is regulated much like alcohol this problem wouldnt be as big a problem. and if people who do use marijuana eventually end up doing other drugs then that is their choice. i know i will be voting to legalize it in november

    I think it is pretty clear to many that marijuana is a safer alternative than most drugs, legal ones and otherwise. There may be mental health implications with cannibis use, but an adult should be able to weight the pros and cons without the threat of legal consequences.
