This is a hot debate that is discussed frequently.

Should cannabis be legalized?
Personally my views on the matter is absolutely yes. I was recently directed to a marijuana campaign currently in development which was campaigning for the legalization of the drug.

Why? Because we are uncertain as to what we are actually smoking, how many of us are smoking it and why we smoke it. There is no way to govern it’s usage because it is part of the black market. The government is loosing out on a taxable resource, it’s users are loosing out by not knowing what pesticides are being used or even the strength of the harvest.

We just don’t know what we are smoking/eating/consuming!

When it is put like that, it is so true. How many of you can remember having a bad smoke? Some brown looking weed? Something just didn’t taste right or normal when you got your last bag off of your dealer. This is frequent occurrence and something that I would like to see change. Dealers generally don’t care and don’t know where the marijuana is coming from, they don’t know how it was grown, what level of pesticides were used and what conditions it was grown in. There could be anything in the soil for all you know. And because there is a huge market for marijuana, the drug dealers just couldn’t care less for your health! As long as they keep making their bucks that is all that matters to them.

Think about it for a moment. Unless you grow your own supply do you know exactly what the history is of those buds you possess?

I think that marijuana should not only be legal, I think it should be a cottage industry. It would be wonderful for the state of Maine. There’s some pretty good homegrown dope. I’m sure it would be even better if you could grow it with fertilizers and have greenhouses.
