  1. Why can people age 18 vote on it but cant buy it in a state already legal either change voting age to 21 or impairing substances age to 18

  2. CBS morning news. at 5 to 7 you can catch 9 updates on local weather from 7 to 9 a.m. You get 2 5 minute repeats of local news. And, And approximately 1/2 hour of news repeated twice. The rest is advertisements So don't watch it for 2 hours!!!!!!!!!!.

  3. It's all about eliminating external authority. The biggest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind.

    “…most laws and rules have been written by those outside of you or apart from you who in some way believe that they need some control over your behavior in order for them to feel good. And it’s such a futile fight for them. It’s the reason they get bigger, and louder, and meaner is because they can’t win that because they can’t even control their own children, or their mates, or their employees. Let alone the world they think they need to control to feel better.” …Abraham/Hicks

  4. Alcohol being legal and marijuana being illegal is absolutely mind blowing in 2019 considering the number of alcohol related deaths there are every year.

  5. Recreational use support shows the amount of ignorance within society. Just like alcohol people are looking for another false stimulate to make them feel good. We see what alcohol does and we know that the workforce is at an almost moronic state with people who are too under-qualified to even be a janitor for a circus. Education standards seem to be a joke, we waste money on criminals, and have people living for multiple Generations on a welfare system. Our entire Society seems to have become a crutch for the incompetent and now people think it's a good idea to throw this in the mix.

  6. The gov don't Wana legalize it coz they will lose money in alcohol, tobacco and prescription sales also less people will be going to jail.

  7. What i find hilarious is that trees that we get our oxygen from grows naturally from the earth, just like marijuana does. Yet nobody seems 2 have a problem with those trees, & Just like marijuana it helps us. 1 helps us breath, the other helps us with our medical issues..BOTH EXTREMELY BENEFICIAL !!! Yet the government all 4 prescription meds. which not only cause addictions problems,but cause the people in the recovery process from those addictions problems. Just look at ALL the benifits that come from marijuana use, so should legalization even b an issue… I don't think so

  8. Why are cigarettes which are proven to cause cancer, cut your lifespan in half, and put a hole in your throat legal if weed isn’t?

  9. it would help me and my family vote for the president if they support are marijuana rights that should have never been violated

  10. They should just legalize it nationwide and tax it. It would make millions of people happy and provide for extra funding toward everything. Win Win

  11. As a severely injured disabled veteran's wife, I think legalizing marijuana nationwide is quite an important issue to someone like my husband. we go to the VA hospital every other week and talk to fellow veterans in the waiting room. Most of them agree marijuana could ease their physical pain when any other pain killers can't fix anything anymore.

  12. I am ONLY voting for candidates that are FOR legalizing marijuana. Now that we’ve finally legalized in Michigan I’m voting every chance I get, for pro legalization candidates. So many people became law abiding citizens as soon as we legalized, national legalization should be next.

  13. Just legalize it already, and stop testing us federal workers! I don't understand why this issue is so hard for lawmakers to understand. They'll vote on a budget increase in 2 days but God forbid the American people legally smoke a plant without repercussions.

  14. Once it becomes legal, you will know it's unhealthy for you. Doctors only push what causes health effects so that you can "pay" them a visit.

    Example: Alcohol leads people into debt to emergency rooms very quickly. 19% of my family has died to this.

    I am smoking weed while typing this, so I am not against it, but I am having concerns on what the governments motives look like.

  15. I hate to tell you their champ but those of us to do smoke marijuana and I have smoked marijuana for over 40 years we never paid attention to the law because the law is fake it doesn't exist it's not real and there are only 11 laws that matter the ten commandments and the greatest commandment of Jesus Christ after that it's all just made-up nonsense and I'm going to smoke some pot in your honor right now.

  16. I got SO much free stuff from a couple of Cannabis stores in my town today for 4:20 and a half gram oil cartridge for a dollar.
    Come on, America… this fight is over.

  17. Mankind should not ever take away God given rites nor tax what belongs to God. May God tax you for all the wrongs mankind does.

  18. This issue is very important to me. I have chronic pain and am opioid resistant. Cannabis is the only thing that works. My state doesn't even have medical. The last time I bought some it was laced. I don't have the resources to move my family where it is legal. I'm stuck between a rock and a very hard place.

  19. That's because the elderly are using Cannabis for their ailments and people are realizing it's Safer than ALL drugs including safer than pharmaceutical drugs and alcohol
    Looking for a OPEN MINDED candidate for President and competent and will uphold his position as President with ethics and morals and values the American people over party and big Money and corporate influence to do what is right for America and it's Lands!

  20. A natural herb from the earth, unlike opoids chemically made true "drugs". The greedy pharmaceutical companies now see the money even though they don't give a f*ck about the healthier for human consumption aspect. I'll take it anyway we can get it.

  21. Fully legalize it and get Andrew Yang in office for that $1000 UBI, American happiness would be at an all time high.
