    SMOKING DAMAGES THE LUNGS! ALCOHOL YOUR LIVER. TAKE YOUR CHOICES! HOWEVER I DON’T LIKE THE IDEA OF YOUNG PEOPLE GETTING A HOLD ON MARIJUANA TO USE INDISCRIMINATELY. WE HAVE WORKED SO HARD TO KEEP SMOKING OUT OF VARIOUS PLACES TO REDUCE LUNG CANCER. NOW LEGALIZING MARIJUANA WILL CONTRIBUTE TO CHROMOSOMAL CHANGES IN THE GENES & HARM THE LUNGS. . MARIJUANA SHOULD BE LEGALIZED FOR THOSE WITH MEDICAL CONDITIONS THAT BENEFIT FROM IT’S USAGE, NOT FOR JUST ANYONE TO GET HOLD OF. .
    THE CARTOON IS GREAT JESSIE BUT I DO STRONGLY BELIEVE WE WOULD OPEN A CAN OF WORMS WITH LEGALIZATION.

    Young folks will not have indiscriminate access to cannabis. Passing legislature to legalize recreational use of cannabis by adults is actually likely to make it more difficult for young to access the plant. The current measure on the ballot will not allow cannabis use anywhere that tobacco smoking is disallowed. In the state of California cannabis use is already legalized for medical purposes. Passing Prop 64 would help turn the tide to force the United States Federal Government to look more closely into descheduling cannabis, which is currently more federally illegal than cocaine or methamphetamine. Legalizing cannabis in this state and others will help end the broken system of prohibition and pave the way for actually effective drug policy. The criminality of cannabis only serves to protect the profit margins of petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and other industries that would be edged out by more affordable and sustainable cannabis-plant-based alternatives, as well as line the pockets of the highly corrupt Drug Enforcement Administration, and pack prisons with nonviolent offenders garnering high yields for for-profit prisons who make gains off of depriving prisoners of basic human rights. There may be some unwanted effects from cannabis legalization, but far fewer than the status quo of criminalizing a plant the the sole benefit of ill-intentioned profit centers.
