Marijuana  has been on the scene for years and years in America. I first heard about it during the Beatnik era of the fifties, but it had been around many years before that.

Hey, when i was a kid folks would get thrown in jail for having one joint, or even a partial joint. The point I'm trying to make here is this. It's been around so long already, why not legalize it? Those that prefer to indulge will continue whether it's legal or not anyway. According to an article in USA Today,  American's are overwhelmingly in favor of the legalization of marijuana.  I think it's medicinal use has helped the legalization cause too. Legalize it  and get it over with once and for all I say.
