When will the people of the state of Virginia wake up and decriminalize cannabis? It's draconian and wasteful to persecute and prosecute people for possessing and consuming marijuana when we're hurting no one. Marijuana use by responsible adults should be regulated, because prohibition doesn't work and it harms the wrong people mostly. Legalize and regulate Marijuana. Too many lives have been adversely affected by wrongly being labeled a criminal. If you know you're history then you'll know the evil reasons marijuana was made illegal to begin with. George Washington, our first president even grew cannabis and separated the male plants from the female plants for possible consumption. He grew it at a place called "Muddy Hole" on one of his 5 farms near Mount Vernon. My Grandmother, a Washington from the Northern Neck, was his fourth great niece and I've been through too much crap due to senseless marijuana laws. End marijuana prohibition. I am not a criminal.

The case for marijuana legalization was very strong in 1971 when I got interested in the issue, even though I have never tried it, because it is much safer than alcohol or tobacco. In 1972 the National Commission on Marihuana voted 13-0 to decriminalize it, even though nine of its members were appointed by Richard Nixon, who chose to ignore the findings of his own commission. Unfortunately since then more than 20 million people--disproportionately African-Americans--have been arrested for using it, over 10 million have died from alcohol or tobacco (vs. zero known deaths from marijuana), police have been diverted from going after real criminals, and "weed" has become a major source of income for for the Mexican cartels and other evil people.
