Prohibition of cannabis has time and again proven to cause more harm than good. We have seen what prohibition has done to our communities, families, and lives. The prohibition of alcohol backfired on itself. History recalls that it had caused more people to drink, the crime rate to skyrocket, and pointless deaths of both citizens and law enforcers alike. History will judge this prohibition, potentially to an even higher degree of disapproval, due to the longer duration it has lasted; which has resulted in an even larger amount of cases similar to those listed above. This has been going on far too long. It is time for our government to end prohibition of this plant that has been proven to be less harmful than alcohol, let alone, proven to have many health benefits. Doctors today even use a synthetic THC. As many states slowly make their decision on allowing citizens of legal age to use and cultivate this plant, it has opened opportunities for research. We have now seen the true nature of the cannabis plant to be not what was told to Americans when it was first criminalized, as an “evil plant of the devil”. In fact, it has proven to be the opposite; helping people with many different ailments. It is human nature to fear the unknown. We cast no blame on anyone. We simply ask that this senseless prohibition be put to an end.
