Marijuana in it's raw form will never be legal in the U.S. why? Because it cannot be patented ( See "The Pot Book" ) among many other issues.

Even if a majority agree with the law... You can not make morals legal or illegal.


Law is, and always have been, based on moral.

People who cannot leave without some kind of narcotics are weak and pathetic.

Although the US Government will be monitoring this post... I feel compelled to state my opinion! I am from Colorado, where it is now legal to grow, consume, and even buy Cannabis from licensed dispensaries. Just recently the Federal Government which previously stated that it would not interfere with the States rights to govern themselves regarding legalization. However, just a week ago they raided several legal dispensaries.... and found... nothing illegal!! Regulating behaviour shall always be a failure.... Even if a majority agree with the law... You can not make morals legal or illegal.

The latest Harvard University study, published Dec 4th, 2013 in the journal Schizophrenia Research, adds support to the role of genetic factors in schizophrenia, and states that marijuana use alone does not increase the risk of developing the disorder. The latest findings provide enough evidence for Dr. DeLisi and her team to conclude that "Cannabis is unlikely to be the cause of this illness.”

Murica needs Mujicas experiment to succeed

Uruguay's legalization is a long-awaited and important experiment. May they see a great success.

As for public support, President Mujica should be our president here in the U.S., where the majority of people now favor the legalization and regulation on marijuana.
