    First of all, marijuana is much safer than alcohol.. Well, that's really all you need to know. I'm willing to bet at least 75% with negative comments go out or have a few drinks at home on a regular basis. Yes marijuana is still illegal. Should it be, no. If anything alcohol should be illegalized before marijuana. Marijuana was made illegal in the early 20th century for reasons unrelated to it being a danger. Are you still risking your job, yes. Are you wrong for wanting to, no. Nuff said.
