  1. i'd also like to mention that cannabis under its current federal scheduling is being screened for on federal background checks, effectively infringing on the second amendment protected rights of individuals who choose to use cannabis either recreationally or medically, regardless of how it's viewed from state to state. if the constitution means nothing, gov officials should at least be honest about it… they sure find some sneaky ways to violate that shall not be infringed part of the law.

  2. But weed can be used medically! And tobacco products and fully be abused and that shit kills people but it’s legal….. I don’t get why the FEDS taking so long to make weed legal after all the damn evidence about weed like it blows my fucking mind that tobacco and alcohol is legal and they kill you but weed is illegal, is a schedule 1 drug, and it’s illegal🤦‍♂️ American logic

  3. Marijuana should not be legalized for any reason at all. And we need to bring back prohibition on alcohol while we're at it. A grey boring sober society with no chemical release, everyone should state at themselves completely sober at all times. No questions no exemptions.

  4. NO MEDICINAL USE???
    Go watch an M.S patient smoke 2 hits of a bowl and tell me it didnt cure them for an hour or 2. Or maybe go watch your friend have only 2 seizures a day instead of 8 cuz he smokes high cbd stuff. Maybe youd like to watch your mother have an allergic reaction to Ibuprofen instead of watching her smoke part of a bowl and do work all day. Or maybe watch depressed zombie people commit suicide because of anti deppresion pill instead of happy smokers that live normal lives. Oh how bout watching someone not eat untill they weigh 105 pounds at 6 foot 3, or maybe smoke them up and they eat the whole house gaining 10 pounds in a day or 2. There is an uncountable forms of medicinal use for this plant and there is uncountable proof of this on this very platform. Go watch a video on any of the examples I've left.

  5. Im a yard driver and smoke all day. Im there best driver on the yard, they couldent fire me if they wanted to. Zero accidents zero issues with safety in the 8 years I've been driveing. I've smoked every day a 8th the whole 8 years.

  6. It pisses me off to think about how many lives have been ruined because of the abolition of marijuana. Not only that but the countless people who could have benefitted from its use.

  7. The old gray is under informed and totally biased. If he was crippled with pain from arthritis or any of the numerous conditions that qualify patients in MMJ states he would quickly adopt a drastically different point of view

  8. Q : GOD DID NOT CREATE PILLS. BE WISE TO KNOW WHO DID MY FRIENDS.
    **CBD IS NOT PSYCHO-ACTIVE** ; created by THE ALMIGHTY CREATOR = VERY GOOD
    Documented servants of corruption = BIG_PH [F] ARMA ? ARE WE PIGS TO THEIR EYES ?

  9. Q : ALCOHOL HAS MASSIVE MEDICAL BENEFITS BUT IS SUPER DEADLY AND A DEVIL CAN RIDE IT.
    DON'T SEEK SPIRITUAL THINGS FROM THINGS SEEN MY FRIENDS BUT CALL UPON THE NAME OF JESUS. YOUR HEART IS SAFE WITH JESUS AND WISDOM IS YOURS FOR THE ASKING; BE WISE. AMEN?

  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. The government not only knows of medical benefits for cannibus, they have not one but two patents on medical marijuana substances- one of which is marinol….. This guy is completely ignorant of modern knowledge regarding cannibus and it pissed me off that there are still people that uneducated on the subject making arguments against it!!

  12. Cannibus has the lowest rate of addiction among every other illicit drug there is, including alchohol.

    Cannibus has proven time and again to competently suppress epileptic seizures, and is considered to be the only drug to successfully treat PTSD.

    The fact that the federal government has even considered to classify cannibus as a schedule 1 is highly suspicious, and creates many questions on the intentions behind such an irrational act.

  13. Whether cannibus is addictive or not (its not) really has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a free adult individual and am capable of deciding for myself what I consume in my own body! I dont need approval for decisions I make. Oh and as far as "how we would control cannibus coming in to the country from canada or mexico" … I imagine that way we control it now!!

  14. 5:33 This guy is a throwback from the ‘70s. Worse, he talks about controlling illicit cannabis coming over the border if the federal government de-scheduled it. Now think about that, why in the world would the cartels or smugglers in general smuggle a LEGAL SUBSTANCE? His logic is patently backwards in this case. Nowhere in his talking points is the idea of constitutionality or not. He is all about respecting the regulations and international treaties from the 60s with the UN but the U.S. Constitution? Nope. He is a regulator of the highest order.

  15. prohibition, as shown throughout history, creates black market profit motives for criminals, gangs, mafias, cartels etc. these groups use the sale of such prohibited goods to fund other criminal operations. prohibition not only makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding people, but also gives the government an excuse to further infringe on liberty due to the rise in newly emerging/manufactured "criminal activity" as a result. it not only promotes black market sales and funds criminal enterprise, but also puts otherwise law abiding people in danger by giving them no alternative besides dealing with potentially violent gangs and others of the like. since the beginning of the war on drugs the population in american prisons has sky rocketed. private for profit prisons arose as a result and currently the US has the highest prison population in the world. the war on drugs (especially cannabis) is not a war on drugs, it's a war on people. it's a war on the ability of an individual to make choices for him/herself about what goes into their own body. prohibition and similar legislation provides government a higher claim over the lives of individuals than the individuals should have themselves. simply put, it's just more evidence that the american dream is not reality, and the current reality of government in the united states is far from the reality intended by the founders of this so-called free country.
