Marijuana prohibition is the most destructive force morality ever forced down Americans throats. Here in Texas it's racist in it's implications and yet a number of Texans see no problems with this.
The problem stems from the fact that prohibition is all that most Americans have ever known. However before the first laws banning marijuana, there was no such thing as an illegal substance in this country, period.
It's insane to continue arresting people for ingesting a plant, a vegetable, simply insane. The cruelest part of this mess is the fact that medical use of marijuana is being denied to very sick people who can benefit tremendously from its use.
Please lets stop the insanity and at least legalize marijuana use for medical uses, as it could be your brother, sister, mother, farther, grandmother, grandfather or other relative who could be made to suffer needlessly.
In closing, I myself has had to suffer from the ravages of cancer, seven years of serious pain and suffering with the appearance of no end in sight. Let me tell you it got so bad at one point a prayed to god for just one day of relief, just one day suffer free and you can take me. I am not a seriously religious person, but let me tell you, there are no atheist with cancer. Knowing what I know about marijuana now, really angers me for having to suffer so much because of Texas insane marijuana laws. Lets get real Texas and legalize medical marijuana usage.
