    I don’t understand… people getting sentenced for 7 grams of weed…

    Weed needs to be legalized. People say its a gate way drug, it is only a gateway drug because you make it a gateway drug. People try the illegal weed and say, “oh its not bad no wonder half the people I know smoke it”… couple years later “I’m still ok weed is fine, maybe i’ll try something else can’t be that bad” they try other **** and than its all over.

    If you legalize weed you can focus all your energy onto the unnatural and processed drugs which are dangerous because of the **** people mix it with. drugs are no joke, the first step to fighting them is to make weed legal and differentiate it with the real killer drugs crack cocaine heroin ecstasy meth etc.
