If weed isn't bad, then why is it illegal in the first place.

At first, it wasn't illegal. Marijuana became illegal in the united states in 1970. The Controlled Substances Act of 1970, a federal law, classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug, implying that it has a high potential for abuse and has no acceptable medical use, and thus it prohibits the possession, usage, purchase, sale, and/or cultivation of marijuana.

However, in recent studies, this has been proven incorrect. Marijuana has many medical uses. For cancer, the chemo therapy makes cancer patients have no appetite and not be able to sleep. Pot tends to make you hungry [give you the "munchies"  Laughing] and also makes you physically tired after its use.

As for abuse, people do indeed abuse the herb. But people also abuse tobacco, alcohol, soda, coffee, you name it, it's abused. Do you think soda should be outlawed since if you drink a lot of it, it makes you fat and lethargic?  Razz Or if you abuse tobacco you get cancer. It's just how things are.

This is not a well thought out question. It's just like saying "If god doesn't exist, how did we get here?" The only difference is there is proof that pot is not as harmful as once thought were there is no proof of god existing (don't get me wrong I believe he exists, I just know there is no proof of it). We know pot is not as harmful anymore as stated in the last post by Set.

We also know that no one drives wild or crazy or kills while on weed as they do on alcohol and that is legal (alcohol not driving on it or whatever). So you can use that same question to alcohol, if alcohol is so bad why is it not illegal? See. No offense, and no one here is trying to recruit you to the pleasures of the bud, please don't take this post as a slam at you personally. It is not meant to be that.

alchol actually was illegal at one point but the people kept fighting for it not to be soo eventually it became legal,soo therefor your argument is pointless,alcohol was illegal,now though it should be it's not. same with weed,it's illegal and it should stay that way.

The main lesson learned was that the Government could not write laws on the morals of the people. at that time weed was not illegal.  (this is in the history books ppl nearly word for word)
But as you know in politics, history to be used as a reference is thrown out the window. Therefore the walking talking hypocrisy that is our law system gets away with holding Weed as an illegal narcotic.

This also makes your statement invalid as well.

Alcohol was legal first than illegal than legal. So actually my statement still has merit. But if you don't want to smoke it than don't. Again not trying to turn you just trying to let you in on the REAL facts, from first hand experience (and not just my own). Since it is not an addictive drug nor a gateway drug like the idiots at DARE try to make you think (they can't prove it cause too many people are like me and not addicted nor go on to harder drugs, yet they still insist it is a fact) it should be legal. And as with alcohol no one HAS to do it. I have friends who do coke and other hard drugs and I still like them even though I detest those types of drugs cause it's there choice not mine, same with you you don't smoke fine but you shouldn't alienate yourself from pot heads who are cool.
