Oh course they are. And they have a president right behind them, giving them all the cover they need for this dangerous pursuit.

More harm than good is being done by keeping marijuana illegal.

Has prohibiting its use actually prevented its use? NO!

Is the reason behind why it was made illegal in the first place based on falsehoods? YES!

Does medical marijuana pose a threat to the pharmaceutical industry? OH you betcha!

HA! LOL! Pharmaceutical companies hate homegrown natural remedies!

They use their money and influence to get natural remedies labeled untested and unsafe (while somehow here and there putting out dangerous "remedies" of their own with little to no oversight and small pipsqueak repercussions).

So calling this a dangerous pursuit is laughable. To the extreme.

Don't think so? Ever heard the fast speak on drug commercials outlining a book's worth of side effects?

Thats totally safe right?

We asked the leaders of The Ohio Rights Group to come to Marietta to help get the signature drive started. They would not come because they were afraid of being arrested. No way will they get the signatures to put this on the ballot any time soon.

If it can help someone in chronic end stage cancer, renal disease, or any painful condition where nothing else has helped control the pain , then legalize it for medical purposes. I really can't see it would matter much if it was legalized for recreational use, either.

Sarek calls this a dangerous pursuit, and bigfoot mentions the dangers of synthetic, man made medications. Weigh the "evils" people!!

Medicinal, or recreational "Mary Jane" does not have to be smoked to have the medicinal effect, it can be injested, thus removing any risk of causing another disease. Take synthetic drugs and risk hepatitis, lymphoma, liver disease, stomach ulcers, and the list goes on and on.......

I think the choice is simple, it is a weed that occurs naturally and the government should leave it alone and regulate the man made substances, and the class action law suits that go along with them.

I think it is funny some of the people who are against smoking but are for making marijuana legal. Is marijuana smoke somehow better?

For the love of God, legalize it! Bigfoot hit the nail on the head with the pharm companies comment. There is more money for drug manufacturers/researchers if marijuana remains illegal.

Get the government out of our lives and legalize "the pot" for recreational use.

I think it's funny that, although I previously spelled it wrong, jacsm1217, paid absolutely no mind to the comment that it can be ingested for medicinal or recreational use. It does not have to be smoked!

Newworld appears to be living in his or her own little world.

I can understand the state leader not wanting to come to Washington County. I was planning to be involved in this movement until I was told my name came up among some law enforcement people. BTW, I don't use marijuana but would if it was legal for me to do so by using a vaporizer or as an edible. It would be more effective, cheaper, and allow me to discontinue the use of several prescription medications. Might even make me more pleasant to be around.

Tessie, Why do you say I live in my own little world? I know who a lot of posters are.

Who would support the wording of the Ohio Rights group? All it is is a law to make a commission to make the laws. Who knows what those laws will be and what the price it will cost the people of Ohio. It was set up to fail from the start and it has!

Ohio is very easy going on pot as long as you are not selling it. You can have up too an oz on you and it's only a ticket.

If anyone is against legalization you are ignorant. Legalize it. I've have seen the powers of the cannabis plant it is the miracle herb, it was on the earth way before the corrupt governments made it illegal.

I don't recall any recent news stories about deaths from overdosing on pot. However, there are many instances of ODing on prescription pain killers. Why the stigma on marijuana? Because it's now illegal or is it because of the loose prescription writing that goes on in states that permit it? It's just another drug-if it really helps some people let them have it. Worried about side effects? Just listen to all the possible side effects for ANY drug advertised on TV. Seems to me that pushing a particular drug on TV is more of a problem than the pot. How many people go to the doctor and ask for a drug they saw advertised? Isn't it the doctor's job to diagnose and determine IF you might need medication? If the state does legalize it they should make sure that the prescriptions are valid--maybe check on some of the pain pill pushers why they're at it....
