While we still enforce Cannabis prohibition under penalty of death here in Singapore, the rest of the world is attempting to legalize it, decriminalize it, use if for medical purposes, etc.
The largest group form around legalizing Cannabis is NORML which mission is to legalize Cannabis for all uses in North America.
From research all over the internet, Cannabis was made illegal for all the wrong reasons by America's first drug Czar, Harry J Anslinger, by promoting Yellow Journalism, misinformation, corruption and racism.
The Cannabis plant itself is a wonderful plant used for thousands of years by many cultures for recreation, medicine, food, fuel, textile, paper and many many more. Popular mechanics back in 1938 dubbed the Cannabis plant to be "The billion dollar crop" with over 26000 possible uses.
Some even have quoted that the Cannabis plant itself may have the cure for Cancer.
But the most glaring of all,
many independent scientists have classified Cannabis as less dangerous, less addictive and less intoxicating than alcohol.
What is the government's reasoning for enforcing the death penalty on a substance less dangerous than alcohol?
