Marijuana is not from the devil. It's just a weed that has always 
grown in specific climates and has been used medicinally since before 
time. You ask, "Is getting high medicinal?" You betcha it is. Feeling 
good about life is the greatest healer of all.

We do not live in a Puritan society with its tightly controlled codes 
of moral conduct. Those days are gone. That mindset is obsolete. We 
live in a free and ever-changing world.

Those trying to retard American cultural evolution can be compared to 
certain religious types trying to maintain the thinking written on 
Middle Eastern scrolls hundreds or thousands of years ago. We as a 
species are not there anymore. We aren't them. The world has changed. 
People have changed.

Somebody said they wanted to turn back the clock to the good old days 
30 years ago when things were simpler. Those weren't the good old 
days. Things weren't simpler. You were.

Ladies and gentlemen, the cat is out of the bag. The barn door was 
open and the chickens flew the coop, or whatever. There is no going back!

This is the world we live in. We have to see it as it is and adapt 
ourselves to it. Everything is always changing. There is only the 
illusion of control. Don't be fooled.

Marijuana regulations and taxes? Phooey! Decriminalize the weed. Let 
everyone have it. Feel good. Be free. The world will be a better place.
