  1. I’m confused…how is making a drug that is harmful to you and others illegal racist? And how is saying that minority groups more specifically black ppl are using the drug more than any other group of people racist?

  2. "Weed with roots in hell…" LOL Oh those foolish Christians cannot even read their own bible. Genesis 1:29 "Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food."

    Granted we do not always just eat weed like fruits and veggies but this means God created ALL PLANTS on Earth according to their precious bible.

  3. I'm disappointed that this video only reached 31K viewers.
    YouTube's algorithm systematically hiding this truth.
    They can't remove this video because it's educational and doesn't violate any guidelines, but, they don't let this video get to people's recommended section nor in the main page, despite Business Insider channel having OVER 2 MILLION SUBSCRIBES.
    Coincidence? I think NOT!

  4. To legalize it, into a society who's standards to a balanced life style, have been so severely compromised by the cultural engineers.Take into consideration the history of prohibition, the legalization of alcohol, look what it has done to an UNSTABLE society.Cannabis in its recreational use and its spiritual use is both harmless and beneficial, but to mix it with synthetic drug shit, that's being sold and feed to the brain washed youth within the inner city's isn't a good idea.Those who are ready to legalize it, are also ready to cause chaos, they have already systemized it, and have added to candy, goodies and foods that are attractive to the very young.I say this, they have an agenda and its to their benefit, not yours. Be-wary, what you think is a blessing could be a scourge, everyone has a different response to a substance than everyone else, especially if their mixing it.GuRuE

  5. Im sure the Democrats were the ones who made it illegal. Always have had a racist history, want total government control, and dont embrace capitalism that comes from the legalization.

  6. Pot causes schizophrenia. Want to spend a life-time in a psych ward? Most people can smoke it without trouble. The risk is not worth it, though. How do you know if you are "most people." @ You cannot smoke pot with a person in a psyche ward who has pot-induced schizophrenia.
