  1. "“In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. For example, eating 10 raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death. Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man."

    – Francis Young (DEA Administrative Law Judge – 1988])

    "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use…”

    – Jimmy Carter (U.S.President)

    “Congress should definitely consider decriminalizing possession of marijuana… We should concentrate on prosecuting the rapists and burglars who are a menace to society.”

    – Dan Quayle (U.S. Representative & Vice President)

    "Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could."

    “The anti-marijuana campaign is a cancerous tissue of lies, undermining law enforcement, aggravating the drug problem, depriving the sick of needed help and suckering well intentioned conservatives and countless frightened parents.”

    – William F. Buckley Jr. (American conservative author & commentator)

    – Kofi Annan (U.N. Secretary General)

    "Pot is a better drug than alcohol. I'll prove it to you. You're at a ball game or a concert, and someone's really violent and aggressive and obnoxious, are they drunk or are they smoking pot?"

    “Why is pot against the law? It wouldn't be because anyone can grow it, and therefore you can't make a profit off it, would it?”

    “…It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit … unnatural?”

    -Bill Hicks (Satirist, Social Critic, Stand-Up Comedian)

    "If the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."
