  1. legalized marijuana no big deal but do not make it legal to advertise it in any form. I drove past a billboard today advertising a marijuana dispensary. Tobacco and alcohol cannot be advertise in such a manner so why are marijuana dispensaries allowed to do so. Go ahead legalize marijuana but do not allow it to be advertised to our youth. I'm in no way against the legalization of marijuana. But it should never be advertised to our youth in any form.

  2. Ive noticed the states with the most green trees..to a point are getting legalization when the dry tan brown states are literally getting left behind in the dust and are almost forming a small dry union in a sense and it makes me wonder whats gonna happens when theres 2 opposing sides vs just legalize it everywhere quick before things and population in states starts shifting dramatically

  3. People who treat their bodies like amusement parks will one day regret that decision. A guy that I work with smoked pot a lot when he was younger and he has had horrible stomach issues for the past 20 years from it. The pot caused him to get Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS). More info can be read about it all over the internet, but here’s a link to get u started:

  4. If it is legalized nationwide, I bet my state of Alabama tries to keep it illegal on the state level. They love their guns and alchohol, but will bash your head in if you have a joint.

  5. Surprised CBS covers anything cannabis with a positive tone. Too bad they would not run a pro cannabis ad during the NFL championship.

  6. Pretty sad that it cost so much money to get laws and regulations formed in this nation. If this is how it works how will the poor have justice?

  7. Don't let SJW fools ruin the effort to legalize cannabis. There are only two major parties in America so of course an effective approach has to be 'GOP friendly' to a certain extent.

  8. Haha Big Pharma has two lobbyists for every member of Congress. It spends more on lobbying than tobacco, oil and defense contractors combined. Spending millions fighting against the pharmaceutical industry's agenda is chump change to them. It's like David and Goliath. Luckily David usually wins.

  9. Notice all the states that still have it illegal are the 'bible thumpin' redneck shitkicker im afraid of brown people" states…

  10. There are only two kinds of people that oppose the legalization of cannabis the ones that are ignorant on the subject and the ones that make money off of it being illegal.

  11. Legalize it, wait 15 years for the law suits. "You knew marijuana had health risks and you made it legal anyway, all because you wanted the taxes"

  12. Funny how the left are pro freedom with cannabis but thinks like "hate speech is wrong". The government need to get out of are personal freedoms that was given by the constitution. Let us do what why want to do with are own bodies.
