I'm a 19 year old "stoner" in Texas and couldn't imagine living my life any other way. When I smoke I feel normal. I have type 1 diabetes, and when I'm feeling the nausea and chest pain associated with some of the problems with my sugars, I smoke and feel great! It helps me deal until my insulin kicks in. I also smoke to help with emotional problems. I can get stuff done and not have to feel so down. It's an instantaneous change. Marijuana doesn't make me angry or want to go out and cause trouble. It SUCKS living in fear of getting in serious trouble because I'm using something that makes me a happy, better person. I'm 100% behind Ron Paul on allowing the states to decide, but why not just decriminalize it nationally? Those who oppose, does me smoking pot really affect your life?

If I could vote it would be for you man, I hope you win. But you never mentioned an age barrier for marijuana.

Ron Paul just got my vote.... probably had it anyway, but this ensures it. Im an 18 year old male from Massachusetts and I completely agree with what he's saying. SPREAD THE WORD!

This guy is excellent, we've been watching the medical marijuana scene in the USA and Canada for several years now with huge interest and its good to see that prohibition itself is still well and truly in the political limelight with guys like Ron fighting the corner.

Ron Paul, you have my vote.
I come from the small city of Alze, Tx.
I can literally walk across my street and get marijuana.
And I do.
I don't drink often.
I believe that alcohol and marijuana are a fork in the road.
Marijuana opens your mind in the way that alcohol does quite the opposite; it shuts you down mentally and physically. Therefore, I see marijuana as the bunny and butterfly engulfed meadows through the pretty trees.
Alcohol, on the other hand, destroys your liver, gives you nausea, and in some minor to major abuses of alcohol cause vomiting. So I see the alcohol side as the dark and dreary leafless tree filled wasteland.
Not only that, marijuana has medical uses that alcohol could never have.
Long story short, Ron Paul has the sensible view.
I'll be waiting at the poll.

Yea Im in highschool right now and I could go get some weed in about 10 minutes. But alcohol that's a different story. Alcohol is a hundred times harder to get because you have to go through the trouble of finding someone who is old enough to get it or has a fake ID. I do smoke weed though about 3 times a week and all I have to say is that it relaxes me and makes me happy. I really don't like alcohol that much because I cant control what im doing and feel sick. With marijuana I just feel happy and motivated. And you can not Overdose on marijuana. You would have to smoke like 3 pounds of weed in an hour to overdose and hotbox that room. And 3pounds cost over 10 thousand bucks. And no one can smoke that much. you smoke a joint or 2 and your high as heck. And no I do not plan on using harder drugs in my life because IM not a dumbss and don't want to die or go to prison. I actually plan on going and getting my bachelors in mathematics because I have all A's. Ron Paul You have me and everyone else s vote at my highschools vote. I hope you win and not that pos Gingrich. And I hate him for his foreign policy as well as his domestic. And the man is just not a morally good person. He will be impeached if he becomes president.

Think about how many lives are taken because of the smuggling required to bring cannabis to the us because of the prohibition.. And all the tax dollars we spend to house people in jail for such a harmless plant. Prohibition of alcohol didn't work and prohibition of cannabis won't either so lets end it now people! Ron Paul!

Wake up, he isn't saying it should be legal, just up to the states. So if the states want to give you 20 years for smoking a joint, he'd be happy with that.

vote for Ron Paul and lets stop the ignorance that has gone on for way too long, this fail of a war on drugs started by Nixon needs to be revisited because like Ron Paul said marijuana prohibition causes more hardships and problems than it solves...it solves nothing...it just makes the people in office look stupid for arguing points they know arent true, all scientific evidence points to marijuana not being harmful, yes smoking it can potentially be harmful but thats only because smoking ANYTHING is harsh on your lungs, if you ingest it orally or vaporize it then you wont have any lung problems, and you might just achieve a greater quality of life and open your mind to other possibilities instead of just sticking to what was wrongfully taught many years ago

thats stupid to say marijuana is a dangerous drug, anyone who thinks marijuana is a dangerous drug or should be illegal just doesnt know what theyre talking about, DW danger you clearly have no education when it comes to cannabis and neither do the people in this video who are arguing that its illegal...did anyone notice that they bring in two people against it and one person for it in this video? perhaps to outnumber him and lead us to believe the two over the one who actually knows what hes talking about, he actually had facts to support marijuana legalization and safer ways to ingest it or inhale it, the two fools just kept clinging to the fact taht smoke is harmful for you, think about it anyone with half a brain can tell you that a plant is healthier than smoking jet fuel and the other garbage used to make cigarrettes

This is unbeleivable! We spend millions to help just onne person get cured from addictions that in most cases started with using marijuana to mellow out. Harmless, hardly! People sell their bodies, sell dope, hurt their families, get their families involved in selling dope, steal to fund their habit and lose their jobs because of weed! Addictions are killing our country and YES marijuana is the door through which most enter to get there. I work with addicts who tell their life stories and weed is addicting. Say No to marijuana legalization and No to Ron Paul.

A sane viewpoint. Why make otherwise law abiding tax paying adults criminals in our own homes. Why should we allow one more dime tax payer monies or or one more minute of time from our law enforcement agencies on this issue? Who does it benefit to continue this practice, jails, the
justice system, society? ? Tax it, legalize it .

Ohh man, I really hope heroin gets legalized! I got some with me right now, but I am just waiting for it to be legal! Come on baby....

Dr. Paul hit this one on the nose! It is a medical problem if you are addicted to drugs, not a legal problem. Are people doing drugs to maliciously attack society or infringe on your rights? Nope. Therefore it is not a legal issue!

Now where is my energy drink, I need some caffeine!

It's not enough to say "Vote Ron Paul"

PEOPLE NEED TO SWITCH PARTIES 12 WEEKS IN ADVANCE OF THE PRIMARIES IN MOST STATES.

IF YOU DO NOT SWITCH IN TIME YOU CANNOT VOTE IN PRIMARY.

IF YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED REPUBLICAN YOU CANNOT VOTE REPUBLICAN IN PRIMARY. You still may vote however you like in the final election, but not the primary.

IF RON PAUL DOES NOT WIN PRIMARY, NO GENERAL ELECTION! REGISTER AS A REPUBLICAN. FIND OUT WHEN YOUR STATE HAS PRIMARIES. FIND OUT WHERE AND VOTE.

Why the hell wouldn't someone vote for him? He's legalizing weed! And everything he says makes sense... People make their own choices.. if you choose to do drugs, do them. if not, don't. Its that easy. and hes right, people shouldnt be sent to jail for doing drugs because it's their own personal choice.

Listening to Ron Paul speak, here is one of the ONLY candidates who truly understands the Constitution and how our country is meant to operate. I may not agree with every opinion he has deployed yet, I understand within my own mind that this man is the ONLY chance this country has to return to it's once great position amongst nations. He has the vote of our entire family!

He said it should be up to the states. That would apply tot he age barrier as well. If Texans want you to be 18 to use it, you'd have to be 18 there. But if New York prefers 21, then New Yorkers would have to wait a bit longer.

@DWagner You have got to be kidding me right? I'm so annoyed with people claiming that marijuana is a "gateway drug" I smoke pot, and occasionally drink. Don't get me wrong I did some experimenting with other drugs after I tried smoking, but I am in no way addicted to those drugs. Anyone who is against legalizing pot should also be against the sell of alcohol because EVERY study out there will tell you that more people die from alcohol related deaths in a year than people who JUST smoke pot do, actually there has not been one reported marijuana related deaths. AND to your "we spend millions" argument, yes millions of dollars are spent to send people to rehab to get help with their addictions, I can almost guarantee you that not one of those people are seeking help for their "marijuana addiction" simply because an addiction to marijuana doesn't again. The government spend millions on trying to end the war on drugs, but marijuana should not be included in this so called "war." That money should be spent on the drugs that are actually causing problems to the country like, meth, cocaine, heroin, etc. Legalizing could actually benefit this country and think how much profit would be made off of it, helping the economy tremendously. People who disagree with legalizing just sound ignorant to me. To be against something that will actually benefit this country and not harm it in anyway makes absolutely no sense to me.

You clearly know nothing about cannabis. Everything the media portray are lies, funded by the government and corporations. Cannabis is not just for recreational or medical use, the plant can be used as food, clothing, paper, building materials and numerous other things. Many people start smoking cannabis at a young age because it's so readily available to them on the black market, and this is a product of prohibition. It can lead to harder drugs, but this is based on the individual person's attitude and susceptibility. I've smoked cannabis for 6 years, always had the opportunity to try harder drugs, but had the maturity to stick to the least harmful psychoactive drug available.

I also don't drink alcohol, as this is a lot more harmful to myself and others.

On average, alcohol accounts for 3.2% of annual deaths. Tobacca is responsible for around 5 million deaths per year. Cannabis has NEVER killed ANYONE, ANYWHERE. Yet, The U.S. federal government spent over $15 billion dollars in 2010 on the War on Drugs, at a rate of about $500 per second. Nobody can say this is efficient, sustainable, effective or at all beneficial to anybody besides the alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceutical industry.

Also, if you were an ACTUAL addiction worker, you would understand than cannabis is very effective in the treatment of the addiction of alcohol and harder drugs.

You can't argue with science, and soon ignorant, gullible people like yourselves will understand.

@420bencarr I agree with everything you just said, okay, so everyone that does heroine, coke, meth, etc. smokes weed, but whenever they try to use that as a fact, they never show how many people JUST smoke marijuana. And if marijuana became legal and was sold in stores, there wouldnt be dealers, and a lot of times the harder drugs are introduced by the dealer.
