They don't hate the weed, they hate that their pharmacutical campaign contributions would end. I'd bet that there are a ton of politicians that have and do smoke marihuana.
Marihuana has medicinal value.
They just want you to continue pumping your bodies full of pills that then cause you to have to take another pill to remedy the side effects of the first pill and so on.
Marihuana is natural. Sure it's been souped up abit with strains resembling a '57 Chevy, strong and beautifull but essentially it is still natural.......Rockin'
