Marijuana isn't really the appropriate name, look at the history of CANNABIS and how propaganda was made in order to illegalize it.

I suffer from MS,glaucoma,PTSD, pain etc. and this is the only thing that helps me move forward.  It is ashame that it gets such an aweful reputation especially if you were to compare to alcohol and the MAN MADE drugs.  Please reconsider how represent this.  I wish it was legal like alcohol so I wouldn't have to feel so damn guilty!

I would like to let you know that this program is misleading in regards to Marijuana! I have a personal issue with how things are represented.   Marijuana has a lot of medical benefits!  This, if not tampured with, is a naturally grown HERB!  Please explain how marijuana is considered a DRUG vs alcohol that is NOT considered a drug.  I have to tell you I would much rather a thousand times be beside someone driving that has smoked marijuana vs someone that has been drinking!!  If appropriate use of this herb is utilized and it is NOT tampured with the MAN MADE CHEMICAL DRUGS such as heroin, crack, meth, oxycontin, morphine etc etc.  That is where the real problem is... the man made chemicals!  If we as humans did not produce and introduce the chemicals into this world we would not have a DRUG PROBLEM.

I found this show to be interesting, which is why I'm on this page. I'm learning on how drugs affects people and the parts of the body as well. At this time I'm watching the Philly Dope.

Porque si causa tantos trastornos para la salud del cuerpo humano, los gobiernos alrededor del mundo quieren legalizar su uso ?.- Sera por las ganancias monetarias -millonarias- que pueden obtener por su venta ?- O de verdad tiene propiedades curativas para algunos males que padece la poblacion mundial ?- Sera porque quieren acabar con la venta ilegal que beneficia solo al crimen organizado ?.-= Sera que ya estoy loco y me hace falta experimentar con esta y otras drogas para ya no seguir preguntando ? =
