YES. Decriminalize the weed. It is so much less harmful than ALCOHOL and prescription drugs ( which ARE legal ). The stigma of a pot conviction ruins many young lives for no real reason. Anyone can get it anyways. ( prohibition does NOT work ). My Sister uses it for Cancer and it helps WITHOUT killing her liver. It frees up cops to do REAL police work and catch real criminals We would SAVE BILLION$ in prosecution and incarceration PLUS the TAX BASE !!! Lots of reasons people !
