Legalize Marijuana In Illinois

Prohibition of marijuana is unwarranted government intrusion into individual freedom of choice.Marijuana is no more harmful to a person's health than alcohol or tobacco, which are both legal and widely used, and regulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.Marijuana has proven medical benefits for cancer, AIDS, glaucoma and other patients.Crime and violence, both within the U.S. and at the U.S.-Mexico border, are greatly increased due to illegal selling and buying of marijuana. Legalization would logically end the need for such criminal behavior.

  • sean oneill Marijuana helps people in so many ways..even tho you cant smoke hemp, hemp if legalized to grow throughout the states can completely change the process of making clothes,gas,oils,paper, etc..Plus, speaking for myself, it helps me sleep because i have bad anxiety and cant sleep until 3-4 a.m. if i dont smoke. People are allowed to go into work/drive while on multiple painkillers because tey are prescribed them, yet marijuana is illegal even tho painkillers have more of a "high" effect on you. its bullshit & illinois needs to legalize. One of the top stated in debt & the marijuana business is literally a never ending money maker....why dont people see this!!!

  • Shane Whitaker Reasons why marijuana should be legalized :

    1. It is impossible to overdose on marijuana whether it is edible or not.

    2. Marijuana Has been scientifically proven to improve cancer recovery and may even have cancer-killing properties.

    3. Marijuana has been used as a herbal medicine since the ancient China which dates back 5,000 years.

    4. Negative side effects are minimal.

    5. Improves appetite and metabolism supporting weight loss and putting an end to our countries obesity epidemic.

    6. Unlike alcohol, Marijuana users are usually non-violent and are calm and creative.
