“We live in a time where things are changing. I’m proud to be in this age. Race doesn’t matter, weed won’t matter. We are changing as people. Acceptance and understanding are sweeping over us. It’s our time, and I couldn’t be happier. 2014.”

“Why not?”

“I don’t smoke much, but I think it should be legal. A lot of my friends smoke and I don’t see anything wrong with it. If cigerette’s [sic] are allowed, so should weed! I think it’s banned for the wrong reasons.”

“Legalize. This isn’t something to worry about.”

“Doesn’t kill people. It’s mellow. Helps with anxiety.”

“Opens your mind.”

“Way too stoned to answer this right now.”

“DON’T PANIC IT’S ORGANIC.”

“GRANDMA DOES IT. Why shouldn’t I?”

“I don’t even smoke often, but I have friends that do. It is enjoyable and I really don’t see bad side effects.”

“Just because it’s not for everyone [doesn’t mean you] should TAKE it from everyone!”

“Safer than other drugs.”

“Herb sets you free.. America sets herb free?”

Naomi Zeichner / BuzzFeed

“I don’t see much harm in its presence in our generation. I don’t smoke often, but it is very relaxing when I do.”

Naomi Zeichner / BuzzFeed

“Anything in moderation.”
