It's just a plant?

Baloney!

(Possible) Immediate Effects of Marijuana

restlessness
excitement
hallucinations, paranoia, psychotic episodes
impaired coordination
impaired motor ability
mood swings
increased appetite
impaired ability.

(Possible) Long Term Effects of Marijuana:

loss of brain cells
lung issues
chronic bronchitis
energy loss
slow confused thinking
apathy
blood vessel blockage.
Use by adolescents can disrupt emotional development, delay puberty, and can delay the monthly cycle in females.
Marijuana may produce a mild physical dependence that causes minor withdrawal symptoms when discontinued, including nausea, insomnia, irritability, and anxiety.

However, it is just a plant. Dr. Ron Paul may support legalization and/or freedom to use but to suggest it is just a plant is ridiculous. Marijuana is truly a DRUG in every sense of the word.

This was profiling whether racial or because of what he sold, not cool by any means. But, marijuana is a drug plain and simple, stop sugar coating it.

Shoot the messenger, let the down votes begin.
