Open minds to what?
Don't answer, just think on it a while.
Actually that is one of the reasons Ronald Reagan used as to why MJ should be kept illegal. He said it caused young people to sit around read books and discuss what was going on in the world. A person expanding their mind shouldn't be feared.

Your post gives me a great idea. I want to move to Colorado, and go into the chocolate chip cookie business. I could be the Steve Jobs of cookies within 5 years.
Not sure about how accurate that Cheech & Chong video is but on Sensible BC facebook page, you can find articles that talk about the history of cannabis. It is in a 12 part installment but it is a good read.
Cannabis has been a medicine for the last 3,000yrs and only illegal the last 100yrs. The only reason it is illegal is not because of the THC aspect but because of HEMP. Hemp is a million times better than cotton & trees but the cotton industry & forest industry wasn't about to give up all that cash. Then the lies started in & cannabis was made illegal.
My Mom educated my sisters & I about drugs. I am the only one who didn't use drugs in high school but now I use cannabis medically for my undiagnosed illness(es). It makes such a world of a difference, as I stated in one of my earlier posts) When I was healthy enough to keep working, my co-workers were shocked when they discovered I was high at work. I was functioning just like I do when I'm not high. I was operating the cash register & had energy to burn. I told them that the brain can learn to function when you are high & do most tasks to the same degree as when you are not high.
My main argument is this:
How can cannabis be illegal when you can NOT over dose from it & it does no harm to your body yet Alcohol & cigarettes, which is very harmful, is legal. How is that logical? It isn't plain and simple.
Weed is a gateway drug. Most weed smokers also smoke hash, hash oils
