Download for huge size! Print it out and share it with everyone you know. ;)

I'm very glad to see more and more people taking a more calm and rational approach to cannabis. As the older generations die out, I wish they will take their outdated laws and ideas with them.

That's probably what it will take, waiting for the older generations to die. *lights up and waits* ;)

You're right, I should do an inforgraphic on the uses of hemp. We'd save so many trees!

haha thanks man! You live in Germany? I think it's legal to possess but not to purchase there, right? Or maybe it was they're lenient about possession...

I don't even think Ecstasy or LSD should be classified as Schedule 1 drugs. You're more likely to die choking on a peanut than to overdose on pure MDMA. They're certainly less harmful than alcohol and tobacco, and neither are physically addictive.
But great graph! Being a frequent Marijuana smoker myself, it makes me sad to see so much hate on a plant no one even truly understands.

I agree! Ecstasy is way on the bottom of the dangerous list.

Thanks for the kind comments! *stares at your icon for hours* xD

Thank you.
I get into debates all the time about this. I'm completly for the legalization of cannibus, the funny thing? I've never even smoked it.

There was a recent study that showed unhealthy foods are far more addicting and in my opinion much more harmful.

is this the article you saw? [link] I believe it. These last couple of generations have been exposed to more fat and sugar than any other humans in history. Ahhh! Must not preservatives! >_>

Oh no, I saw it on TV but it was very similar study with the same results.
I beleive it too.

A lot of my family is fat, and my dad is obease. He used to be into drugs but he was able to quit them, and oddly enough has a really hard time sticking to a diet, if that speaks for anything.

You know they crack open graves and the humans barely decompose? They've eaten so much preservatives.
Flies will not eat margerin(sp?).

I'm really glad you feel that way! Even people that don't smoke it should be for legalizing it. It's unfair that it's a Schedule I drug when alcohol is much more dangerous. We also need the tax revenue. It would also cause some Mexican drug cartels to dissolve! I think any of those reasons is good enough. xD

What annoys me the most is the complaints against the current economy. I think we could thrive with legalization.
You know it grows like 4x faster than trees and makes a more durable paper? Takes up less room too.
Oh and you can make plastic,cloths, etc with hemp.
You may have to fact check me as I'm just going off of memory but yeah, it's a very valuable plant.

Also, Hemp makes a very good milk alternative! It's delicious, not cannabis tasting, and no it doesn't get you high.. Better than cow's milk though.

you can sell alcohol at 18 but can't buy it until you're 21. LOGIC GOES WHERE?
