Legalize marijuana? It wouldn't be such a bad idea. I took a survey 
of friends and family (and we certainly are not criminals). We need 
to put it in a pill.

Pot is a great stress reliever and will ease anxiety and depression. 
Relieves pain. Eliminates boredom. Encourages creativity. Enhances 
the senses. Makes things fun.

It can increase, or decrease, the appetite and may make one sleepy or 
wake one up (all of which may be good).

It's not addictive, for the most part. Kids would be safer at a party 
with tokers, as opposed to drinkers who are much more apt to become 
aggressive (it's that ego thing).

A little bit is often enough to get us out of that 'rut' and give us 
a 'high'er perspective. Nobody should ever have a criminal record or 
go to jail, anywhere, for having a little bit of it.

Wouldn't the world be a much happier place if we could all lighten up?
