Anyone against legalizing marijuana, please help

I need help understanding why people don’t want to legalize marijuana. This is a legitimate question. I’m willing to discuss or debate, but only if anyone feels comfortable doing so.

If you are against it, and still reading this, please post in the comments why you feel the way you do about it. I just need to know. Thank you.

I’m sick. Yeah, I have all the regular disability crap, I also am sick, sick. You know, throat sore, coughing, weakness, runny nose, and nausea and the loss of appetite that comes with it.

I could take some OTC anti-nausea liquid, but has anyone tried that stuff? If you aren’t already throwing up, you will be if you taste that.

Of course there is a palatable alternative, which not only reduces/eliminates nausea, but also stimulates appetite, but unfortunately it’s illegal in my state. Is there anyone out there who can tell me why?

So, legally I can, and do take Ambien. This is a class 4 medication. For more information on drug classifications, see this link: http://www.justice.gov/dea/druginfo/ds.shtml.

Side effects include:

Headaches
Nausea
Vomiting
Dizziness
Anterograde amnesia
Hallucinations, through all physical senses, of varying intensity
Delusions
Altered thought patterns
Ataxia or poor motor coordination, difficulty maintaining balance
Euphoria and/or dysphoria
Increased appetite
Increased or decreased libido
Impaired judgment and reasoning
Uninhibited extroversion in social or interpersonal settings
Increased impulsivity
When stopped, rebound insomnia may occur

Some people including myself experience various things like eating, driving, or performing other daily tasks while asleep.

One night my kids were brushing their teeth, and being silly, funny, fun. I made a cell phone video of it. The next day I watched the video.

I did not remember anything my beautiful, wonderful, silly kids had been doing. I would have passed a lie detector stating I did not make that video or see any of it, had it not been for my out-of-it voice in the background of the video.

I have lost many hours of my life, not to mention the fact that I’ve woken many days to trails of coconut, or other snack /weird food crumbs, which I’ve produced during episodes of sleep eating.

There are many other negative effects, and of course the addictive/dependency issue, plus the increased risk of cancer; but this drug is completely legal and okay for me to take every night.

Marijuana is illegal. It makes me sleepy, helps my spasticity (which frees me from taking additional medication), and doesn’t create complete time lapses in my memory. Explain that…
