"Herb is the healing of a nation...

...alcohol is the destruction."-Bob Marley

The legalization of ganja has been a hot-button issue for some time now, and with Proposition 19 (the initiative to legalize marijuana in California) coming up, the conversation is becoming more candid than ever.

Well it looks as if former U.S. Surgeon General, Joycelyn Elders, has joined the discussion and she's now speaking out as an advocate for the legalization of ganja.

I don't know about you, but I think that's pretty rad.

I have done alot of research on the pros & cons of marijuana use, and Ive always been an advocate for legalization (even without smoking it).

Like many other decent people, Elders believes:
-marijuana convictions are making young people criminals
-it's a non-toxic substance
-our resources could be used in a smarter way
-alcohol is more destructive
-ganja is not physically addictive
