    “One's condition on marijuana is always existential. One can feel the importance of each moment and how it is changing one. One feels one's being, one becomes aware of the enormous apparatus of nothingness -- the hum of a hi-fi set, the emptiness of a pointless interruption, one becomes aware of the war between each of us, how the nothingness in each of us seeks to attack the being of others, how our being in turn is attacked by the nothingness in others.”
    - Norman Mailer

    “They lie about marijuana. Tell you pot-smoking makes you unmotivated. Lie! When you're high, you can do everything you normally do, just as well. You just realize that it's not worth the fucking effort. There is a difference.”
    - Bill Hicks

    “Marijuana is self-punishing. It makes you acutely sensitive, and in this world, what worse punishment could there be?”
    - P.J. O'Rourke

    “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.”
    - William F. Buckley

    “Whenever the people are for gay marriage or medical marijuana or assisted suicide, suddenly the "will of the people" goes out the window.”
    - Bill Maher

    “Researches tested a new form of medical marijuana that treats pain but doesn't get the user high, prompting patients who need medical marijuana to declare, "Thank you?"”
    - Jimmy Fallon

    "I used to smoke marijuana. But I'll tell you something: I would only smoke it in the late evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening - or the mid-evening. Just the early evening, midevening and late evening. Occasionally, early afternoon, early midafternoon, or perhaps the late-midafternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning. . . . But never at dusk."
    - Steve Martin

    "Casual drug users should be taken out and shot."
    - Darryl Gates, Head of Los Angeles Police Department, United States Senate Judiciary Committee (1990)

    "Make the most of the Indian Hemp Seed and sow it everywhere."
    - George Washington

    "The drug is really quite a remarkably safe one for humans, although it is really quite a dangerous one for mice and they should not use it."
    - J.W.D Henderson, Director of the Bureau of Human Drugs, Health and Welfare, Canada

    "How many murders, suicides, robberies, criminal assaults, holdups, burglaries and deeds of maniacal insanity it causes each year, especially among the young, can only be conjectured...No one knows, when he places a marijuana cigarette to his lips, whether he will become a joyous reveller in a musical heaven, a mad insensate, a calm philosopher, or a murderer..."
    - Harry J. Anslinger, Commissioner of the US Bureau of Narcotics 1930-1962

    "Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn't the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit... unnatural?" -Bill Hicks

    "Researchers have discovered that chocolate produces some of the same reactions in the brain as marijuana. The researchers also discovered other similarities between the two but can't remember what they are." -Matt Lauer :rofl:

    "The only dead bodies from marijuana are in the prisons and at the hands of the police. This is ridiculous." -Jack Herer
