You have heard of tobacco that is a plant. Well guess what cannabis is also a plant. In both cases its dried then rolled up in paper and light at one end whilst being sucked at the other end. Where as tobacco gives you lung cancer over a long period of time as well as to others with passive smoke. Cannabis affects your mind and over a long period makes you dumb or dulls the mind.
Passive cannabis smoke affects others.

Yes decriminalization of cannabis- its happening in many countries - vast amounts of legitimate tax revenue received from "stoners" who apparently dont pay tax- lies cannot be sustained.....
