  1. Time and time again, scientific studies show the multitude of benefits marijuana provides. It’s time for the government to wake up and legalize this wonderful medicine.

  2. If we were made to smoke we would all have little chimneys on us. A few days ago some man in the park was smoking something awful strong in a pipe and there was blue smoke coming from that pipe.
