curse, even though thats agenst my topic compleatly, i agree with. i also dont really think weed is bad and have smoked quite a bit in the past and probably will smoke quite a bit in the future. i can sortof back up what you say about the alcohol companies with no hard core evidence. i think i read somewhere that weed was made illigal after prohibition so people would stop smoking and start drinking again. i cant baqck that up though, dont know where i heard it. of corse weed back then was grass, unlike the improved, more potent version of today.
