Why: It is another quote from a famous figure once again reiterating that marijuana is a natural substance.

Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction.

- Bob Marley

Why: Not only was this quote said by one of the most iconic musicians and advocates of peace of our time, it hits the nail on the head when it comes to comparing marijuana with alcohol.

Marijuana is quite possibly the finest of intoxicants. It has been scientifically proven, for decades, to be much less harmful to the body than alcohol when used on a regular basis. Google 'science'.

- Nick Offerman

Why: It is another plain and straight forward recognition that cannabis is safer than alcohol. There is no denying it.

Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.

- George Washington

Why: Even one of the founding fathers of the US recognised it’s potential.

I now have absolute proof that smoking even one marijuana cigarette is equal in brain damage to being on Bikini Island during an H-bomb blast.

- Ronald Reagan

Why: It demonstrates how far some politicians and media outlets will go to spread fear mongering and propaganda with blatant lies. Ronald Regan was the man who started the War on Drugs.

The legalization of marijuana is not a dangerous experiment – the prohibition is the experiment, and it has failed dramatically, with millions of victims all around the world.

- Sebastian Marincolo

Why: It emphasises the point that it is prohibition, not regulation, which is causing untold amounts of damage to society.

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]

Why: It highlights how pretty much anything in excess is bad for you, yet no matter how much marijuana you have, it can never cause you to overdose.

When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point.

- Barack Obama

Why: Although this quote is simple, it is our favourite. It is refreshing to see one of the most powerful politicians in the world say “yes, I smoked cannabis”, and at the same time emphasise the stupidity of other politicians, such as Bill Clinton, who grudgingly admit to using it, but deny ever inhaling it.
