    If you only had one point to make

    If you only had one point to make to enhance the case of a federal trial to legalize, tax and regulate Cannabis, what point would you bring to the courts attention?

    I would bring to their attention that Cannabis is a lot better for you than alcohol and/or tobacco. And if they can sell those to Americans, why is Cannabis still illegal? I think that would hit them hardest.

    By using 6 percent of the United States current grow-able farmland, we could produce 90 percent of it's energy needs by growing Cannabis Hemp.

    It's non-lethal. Unlike the hundred's of legal pharmaceutical painkillers that can kill you....

    I smoke weed, I live in the hood and sell drugs. But I was doing that before I started smoking weed so what difference does it make?

    If it's legal to go to a tanning bed, which is known to cause skin cancer, for even young teens, why is it illegal for adults to possess and use marijuana, which carries similar risks of causing cancer in the lungs?

    I think pushing the issue that marijuana is just as or even less harmful than other substances/activities that are currently legal is really the only way that we have a chance to legalize it. Because the reasons it is illegal have nothing to do with how harmful it can be to the body and that needs to be exposed over and over again.
    I would love to hit the pipe with you while contemplating if solipsism is real or just another way to be self-centered in today's society. Nothing more selfish than thinking that the entire world is an extension of your imagination.
    I have more than an opinion; I have an argument. I suggest you get one as well - the important things in life deserve reasoned thought to support belief.

    Legalization would remove the need for contact with dealers who may deal in more than cannabis.

    One & one only? Forget the medical aspect. This is "civil liberties" and under the heading of "cite legal authority" remove from "them" "any & all" authority to regulate, police, or tax marijuana in any form. Period. Everyone ever convicted gets a clean slate and even prisoners in State and Federal lockup can legally smoke. Remove their "legal authority" and let men and women decide for themselves.

    Maybe the fact that marijuana is the number one cash crop, and point out all the money that they're missing out on. I figured money would catch their attention the best.

Grand pa and grand ma gen. were dumb as dried dog shit!! and the people and the time running the show knew it!! thanks grandpa ?
    I will congratulate you when the task is done! If you have such knowledge to change years of oppression, why wait "about another two years?" I would suggest you share your golden ticket for legalized cannabis with all and get a spell check. Yes it is true that the feds have stolen many rights from states, but knowing and proving the facts doesn't necessarily overturn their faulty rules and regulations.

    The only way the Feds will turn is under the eye of the camera. They will deny press coverage, so even when they hear the truth, they can call you a liar to your face, slam the gavel, and set the rich man free.
