Why Marijuana is Illegal in five words: Republican Fake Moral Christian Outrage
E Beth (16 дней назад)
i feel that weed should be legal, like, cigarettes are legal, but big companies dont care about the side effects, though weed is natural, cigarettes arent. same thing for alcohol. such bs

Why marijuana is illegal in one word. Racism.
Curved Papers, Inc. (24 дня назад)
No. Money is the one word. Did you watch the video? It's all about paper and industrial fibre magnates trying to eliminate the wonder plant as competition. Race is just a tool to gin up popular support, like what Trump is doing now to keep his votes.

Curved Papers, Inc. (24 дня назад)
Not really. Greed. As usual. They just use racism like Trump as a tool to make money and get votes. They don't care about race or anything. Only money. The Hearsts and the DuPonts. Original Fake News and Capitalist Pigs.

it was a fact that alot of the reasons behind it being illigal was race driven, its not something thats up for debate.
Curved Papers, Inc. (24 дня назад)
Not so much race driven, money-driven, but using race to demonize the plant among common people. It used race, but it was about money. Nixon did the same thing, for political gain, pitted the people whose votes he wanted against people of color and hippies.

I live in sweden. I have a good freind who risks going to prison because of marijuana. Im 20 and been smoking since ive been 14 and i have been doin okay in my life. I will say it have helped me with depression and sleep. I have never been exposed for marijuana and my mom talks really bad about my freind. I mett him at the bar today so im a bit drunk and its late now, she know nothing about drug laws but still she hates it for reasons the media and american cop shows have told her. So im gonna debate her tomorrow cause im mad. If she says something like "but its obvious all weed smokers are fucked up", then i will reveal myself. Too mad about this bullshit.

Dude if you are going to use the race card game why marijiuan was illegal then you are not helping the cause. Just llike trains have been outdated because cars its all about power with money. If you use race for reason you wont get many people on your side.
Jaron Martin (6 месяцев назад)
@Bubba Fights. No that was an excuse to ban it after blacks commited crimes in the south. Violence against white women when hopped up on cocaine. It became a federal prohibition act, not all states banned it before. If it was directly race related then how come they would still arrest any white person with possestion of these drugs? Harrison act was a federal act against hard drugs way back in 1914 long before the Nixon admin. By the way US banned LSD in the 60s and that was almost all white middle class people taking that drug as US seemed to think it was a crisis. The US banned Marijiuanna in Japan after WWII. I guess that was race related as well? Oh nope they are not black. Alex Jones makes sense half the time right? Then he goes off on a rant about elites marrying horses and dressing up like werewolves and tearing childrens throats out. And now he thinks there are now spider goats and stupid stuff like that, discreating his news channel. Alex Jones is just for entertainment purposes.
Bubba Fights (6 месяцев назад)
Jaron Martin Lol the reasons for banning drugs IS race related, stop trying to deny it. Wanna know why they decided to ban heroin? No, not because it was dangerous as it is, but because they wanted to arrest black rights activists as said by one of nixon’s cabinet members. Look it up. Same with weed as it was with hippies, they wanted to arrest them. The war on drugs didn’t begin with good intentions. Don’t deny facts... *looks at subscriptions* Ah, alex jones. Makes sense.

I usually smoke multiple times a day. I’m a sophomore in college, and i ran out of weed last week. I have experienced absolutely 0 effects in the last week. Pretty sure if i used heroin daily and i was cut off, i would be freaking out. It’s absolutely insane that these drugs are put in the same category

Feckless Records with that logic anything could be illegal or a drug because we all get addicted to some sort of activity
Christoffer Rasmussen (8 месяцев назад)
Feckless Records, you're horribly wrong though, contrary to nicotine (cigarettes), cocaine, heroin etc. which are all PHYSICALLY addictive, THC (weed) is PSYCHICALLY addictive. Ie. if you know that before you smoke for the first time ever, unless you have prior mental health issues or your brain is not fully developed (which is why you shouldn't smoke till you're in your twenties), you literally cannot get addicted, and if you do, it's your mind that's addicted, not your body as compared to pretty much all other drugs, even legal ones like most medicine. There's scientific proof of this if you care to look, i'm not gonna do it for you :) also less important, but anecdotal evidence supports this fully. I've always known this, and i can rip the bong all day long for years, then take a break however long i feel like and suffer no ill effects, zero withdrawal, done it multiple times for different reasons. The fact remains that you're spreading misinformation. And i'm not saying that those who experience withdrawal are lying, but they all belong in either of the categories i stated earlier. Just like how the placebo effect makes useless medicine wonderdrugs as long as the patient believes in it. The mind is a curious thing.
Feckless Records (10 месяцев назад)
Jordan Buchacher Hmm well there is a difference when it comes to recreational use and medical use, and everybody's body is different. The main solution is still to smoke more lol xD Anyone reading this I am not a doctor so don't quote me on this or take this as a prescription xD
Jordan Buchacher (10 месяцев назад)
Feckless Records i’ve stocked up, and really had no side effects without it. If anything, it makes me play too much video games and fucks my sleep schedule when i am smoking
Feckless Records (10 месяцев назад)
Jordan Buchacher although you may not have experienced anything cannabis or more specifically THC withdrawals are very much real just as real as withdrawals with someone you were in love with or giving up soda or coffee. The body gets used to it, craves it or becomes dependent on it. But like I said before it's no different from the feelings you get when you give up watching cat videos, mood swings, inability to sleep, cravings; some of these effects probably went unnoticed as simple irritability or playing too much video games and messing up your sleeping schedule. The cure? Either never smoke it again or get yourself another dime bag and light it up! XD

The prohibition of all intoxicants in the 20th century is linked to racism (e.g. cannabis > Mexicans, opium > Chinese, cocaine > African Americans) and have become a scapegoat for governments' inability to address inequality (i.e. If we get rid of drugs, we will get rid of many of societies' problems). Different reasons have certainly developed since then (e.g. big pharma, big alcohol, prohibitionist politicians supported by scared parents who want to protect their children and law enforcement lobbying. But the tide is changing, and many prominent people are starting to realise that prohibition is the abdication of regulation, just like alcohol was (1920-1933). Legalise, regulate, educate, and don't advertise (surely society has learnt from tobacco and alcohol...).

I still don't get why? Like why? Like I smoke pot sometimes and see nothing wrong with it. Like why is it illegal I don't understand?
Curved Papers, Inc. (24 дня назад)
It has to do with paper and industrial fibre, nothing to do with drugs or behavior or race. All about money and competition with trees and cotton.

People over 40 just dont get it. When they die, weed will be legal everywhere.
Thought Monkey (1 год назад)
In the early 1900s a few ultra conservative Christians basically didn't like that African-Americans and Mexicans smoked pot and made it a goal of there's to cleanse the country of it. In other words it was made illegal because of racism and ignorance. It still has not become completely legal because we are still trying to unlearn all of the propaganda that has been taught to us over the past 100 years.

yes if that agree with Thought Monkey. The way the Federal Gov't will take away your weed is from Drug Enforcement Administration making raid team come to where ever your weed is at
Thought Monkey (1 год назад)
Weed is illegal by Federal law. But by some States law it is legal. It's a contradictory situation. Under Obama the Federal government chose not to intervene with the states that chose to legalize weed. But that doesn't mean future administrations will continue down the same path.

so there's a bit of misinformation in this video. cannabis has grown all over the world since time indefinite. The only reason it doesn't grow in north america now is because of it being illegal. Cannabis grew in the Americas before European settlers. Other than that I have no qualms with it.

I kind of hope Weed doesn't become legal because it would just take the fun out of doing it. Also, I consider myself to be in the stoner group in school and it wouldn't be the same if everyone was doing it like it was alcohol or something. Sure everyone can drink, but I don't want stupid ass bitches smoking pot too, it's not for everyone.
Sulfuric Sigil (5 месяцев назад)
Illegal, therefore "cool".
GoatPixel (6 месяцев назад)
The fact you say the reason why weed is fun is because it is illegal? Are you implying you only smoke this because it is against the law? Seriously? Also you would rather give your money to a drug dealer SOMETIMES going to buy things like guns and other hard drugs instead of the tax going to your economy so your country can develop? Coming from someone who smokes weed.
Stewart Kennedy (6 месяцев назад)
Joe Ketchen your a fucking idiot, "it's not for everyone " what makes you think you have more of a right than anyone else, it would also be alot more fun if it was legal, it's not fun because your breaking the law or because only your little dumbass group does it, it's fun because you get high

Well I live in Washington DC and it is legal to grow marijuana here and to possess it, but you go to jail if you sell it. So the dispensaries here "give away" the weed for free.. but you have to buy a sticker from them for whatever the price of the weed would have been. So they will give you an bag "for free" but then you have to pay them $100 for a little sticker with their logo lol. Just make this shit legal already!
