Add this to the reasons why marijuana should be legalized: more than
100 years ago, the cigarette companies had Congress legalize their
products. The only reasons were the farmers who were growing their own
tobacco; the government wanted the taxes and still does.

Their products are still there today; all of them are the No. 1 cause
of lung cancer.

It says this on each package, and they are sold everywhere.

Marijuana is a green plant not loaded with chemicals to keep it
burning, as cigarettes are, and does not cause any kind of cancer. It
also has some medical qualities that are useful and some qualities
that have to be controlled, (but) not as much as alcohol.

Months to "get it right" is not difficult. They should call this "The
Marijuana Waltz."
