Re: Use of marijuana for its benefits will be a fact in our society in the future, July 29, Capital News

Nice one dude, well written. I like how you made references to alcohol
in comparison and their detrimental effects.

The facts are here now but some people refuse to believe them. I will
continue to use and advocate the benefits of the mind and body from
cannabis while understanding the healthy balance of medicinal drug

The establishment will demonize something that you can't patent and
can't distribute via the pharmaceutical industry so don't hold your
breath. Many people will still be popping legal drugs, getting
addicted and having negative health effects unfortunately before
cannabis is more accepted for what it is, a natural safe alternative
to prescription drugs and a incredibly versatile plant. It has health
benefits, it's nutritious and it can be made into pretty much
anything. That is why it's illegal.
