the only reason weed is illegal is because it will destroy our economy, think about it, timber companies will go out of business, if its legal to grow people can just grow it at home and the government wont profit off of it because people will grow it at home instead of buying at stores, so the government would be wasting on growing something people grow at home and lots of money will be wasted while its legal, thats why

I'm sorry, but none of this makes any sense. How would growing marijuana destroy timber companies? Several countries around the world have legal marijuana and intact economies and timber companies. And people growing stuff on their own (agriculture) is extremely good for the economy, because instead of dumping more money into those huge industrial companies where the majority of wealth already lies, you're helping circulate money around the middle/lower-classes. And the government could actually get a pretty penny out of legal marijuana by putting a small tax on marijuana similar to the one on cigarettes.

your half right. weed is illegal is because the pharmaceutic companies would go bankrupt, and pharmaceutics control the government. If everyone in the country could be allowed to grow weed, a proven treatment for almost every pain ache and disease known to man, then no one would ever buy advil or any other drug agian.

Make it illegal to grow unless your a "weed farmer" that sells it to the government, then the government can sell 10 packs of joints in corner stores and liqour stores just like cigarettes.

I'm sorry, but that would hurt the economy even more. It's called a monopoly, which are never good, especially if controlled by the government.

i'll bite.

The reason why it's made illegal is because the papermonopolydude would go out of buissness, and you can't control stoners

and how would you suppose the government control the production of weed u idiot, yes people grow it at home, and the number of people growing at home would increase alot if pot became legal, if the government made it illegal to grow pot, how would they exercise that law? cant really accuse them of growing it if they smoke it since its legal to smoke it
