My choice is what I choose to do,
And if I'm causing no harm, it shouldn't bother you.

Your choice is who you choose to be,
And if you're causin' no harm, then you're alright with me.

If you don't like my fire, then don't come around,
'cause I'm gonna burn one down.
Yes, I'm gonna burn one down.

Herb the gift from the earth,
And what's from the earth is of the greatest worth.
So before you knock it try it first,
Oh, you'll see it's a blessing and not a curse.

President Jimmy Carter:

“Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself”

Volney Brown Jr., Federal Magistrate-Judge,(retired)., Los Angeles. At the DPF Conference, November 1996:

“There is only one thing wrong with drug law enforcement, just one – it doesn’t work. And when I tell you this I want you to believe me because I have done it”

Sir Paul McCartney, Independent on Sunday, 28th September 1997:

“I support decriminalisation. People are smoking pot anyway and to make them into criminals is wrong. It’s when you’re in jail you really become a criminal.”

Ontario Justice John McCart, 1997, (R. v Clay)

”Cannabis is not an addictive substance; does not cause a motivational syndrome; and health related costs of cannabis use are negligible when compared to the costs attributable to tobacco and alcohol consumption.”

Professor Lester Grinspoon, Harvard Medical School, USA:

“Marijuana is one of the least toxic substances in the whole pharmacopoeia”

Edward Ellison, former Head of Scotland Yard’s Antidrug Squad

"I say legalize drugs because I want to see less drug abuse, not more. And I say legalize drugs because I want to see the criminals put out of business.”

Judge James Pickles, UK:

“Cannabis never killed anybody and it’s use is widespread. You can’t stop it. The law defeats itself because all the efforts to stop drugs coming in only drives up the prices and then gangsters move in to push the drugs. If they legalised there wouldn’t be gangsters and huge profits…

LaGuardia Commission Report, 1944

“Cannabis smoking does not lead directly to mental or physical deterioration… Those who have consumed marijuana for a period of years showed no mental or physical deterioration which may be attributed to the drug.”

Henry Ford:

"Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?"

Ronald Reagan, U.S. President (1980-198 cool :

"Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves."
(MOTHER ******** RONALD REAGAN SAID THAT!!)

"I’d always done a lot of sniffing glue as a kid. I was very interested in glue, and then I went to lager and speed, and I drifted into heroin because as a kid growing up everybody told me, ‘don’t smoke marijuana, it will kill you’."
- Irvine Welsh, author of "Trainspotting"

The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.
-Carl Sagan
