legalize marijuana, if you want to know stuff about weed… well, its gonna take me forever to type, so i will ling you to 2 movies that tell you the truth about pot…

movie one… the union: the business behind getting high

movie 2… Grass (narrated by woody harrelson)

i can’t say where to find the union online, but it is out there, but if you want, you can watch the entire movie of grass online, it isn’t so much about the truth about weed like the union is, but it shows the history of how it was made illegal and how it was done.
