Or will it ever be legal? I love America. I've lived here my whole life. I've discovered beautiful things, and it's sad that one of the most beautiful things, marijuana, has to be illegal. My main reason from smoking regularly is the fact that I don't want to get caught and get a criminal record. I am 22 years old, a pretty young guy, with a future ahead of me.. I don't want to ruin it all because I got caught with some pot. I feel, as many others do, that if marijuana was legal, it would be a much better world, and would eventually become more socially acceptable. People will realize it has many valuable uses, other than reactional smoking. In America, anytime soon, will marijuana be legal? Is it a losing battle to try to get our government to legalize it? I know some states support marjuana for medical purposes. Is this a big step forward to full out, legalization? Any thoughts?
