Why Not Legalize Marijuana?

Isn't about time we stopped being so righteous and admitted that a big mistake was made when they legalized alcohol and made marijuana illegal. How many lives have been lost to the bottle, while there still is not significant evidence that marijuana kills. From studies conducted, they have found that marijuana actually makes you slow down, so you can actually respond better. And this is not to mention all the medical benefits.

There are so many articles out there that prove this "plant" has more positive properties than negative ones. The only thing we have to do now is to get those conservative minds to accept it. It is always hard to admit you are wrong, especially when you have been at WAR with what you thought were drugs. Think again. Marijuana is not a drug, it is a medicinal plant. I can not find or think of one instance where someone reported a marijuana overdose. At worse case scenario, you smoke yourself into a stupor and don't want to get up. But if moderation is applied, it can be a very creative experience.

Just think of all the products that could be made from legal marijuana crops. Fabric, paper, oil, and many many other "cash" crop products. Of course this would mean that taxes would be applied, but I would rather pay taxes than fines.

I heard on a video today that the government could gain over $17Bil by legalizing marijuana. That should bail out somebody. It is legal in Holland and they have no more crime that when it was not legal.
