Normally this is where I'd step in and give my opinion on whether pot should be legalized or not.   
But I'm not going to talk about that, what I am going to ask is why people assume something is bad based on the sole fact that it's illegal. I'm not asking regular people to start smoking pot nor am I asking the stoners to quit smoking.   
What I am asking however is for everyone to get their facts straight. That's it.   
(Okay I'm done you can all thumb me down now...)

Yeah, by drugs

weed is a 100% natural plant that is older than any human civilization

Unproductive?
You can search a long list of VERY successful people who smoke(d) pot (Steve Jobs, or Bill Clinton for example)

-you smoke weed
-you care less
-you are happy
-people call you lazy, too high to care
-people laugh at you cuz you are poor, too happy to care
if someone else smokes weed it does not affect you, they are happy and you do what ever you want no one is getting hurt so why try to stop them?

Regardless of whether or not it SHOULD be legalized, breaking the laws of the country we live in is a bad thing. Try to change the laws, sure, America is all about that. But breaking the laws is a bad thing. You need to have some respect for the authority to maintain a healthy nation.
America has many more murderers and criminals than most other "civilized" countries because we are impatient and have little respect for authority.

what makes these authority figures different from murderers and criminals? it's not like they breed them to be perfect and nice, they grew up just like everyone else, the only difference is that they have a job, the only way to get people to obey is if we have less freedoms.... **** that

Assuming you mean politicians:

The "job" they got was decided on by the people who have less freedoms, while fully knowing and following the system that gives them less freedoms. They strive to prove themselves to the average human, the voter, who will be affected by them. Our country gave them their job and they're doing it for the amount of time pre-decided.

What makes them different is that they've earned the approval of our society as a whole enough to be voted for above others. We're not all identical bags of walking flesh.

They earned their authority and they don't keep it if they lose that trust.

Assuming you mean policemen:

Their job is to enforce rules made by their authority, the politicians. They make sure these laws are being followed, as the politicians, with the approval of the people, have decided that following these rules is the safest/best choice for us as a whole.
As long as these enforcers are enforcing the actual, real law, they are not responsible for what those laws are. There is no reason to hate someone for doing a job predetermined for them. They maintain peace by enforcing the laws.

You want laws changed? Try to change them! America is a land where laws CAN change if it's something a large enough amount of people want. But breaking the law is disrespecting the authority, and having authority figures prevents anarchy, and anarchy is incredibly dangerous for most people. Absolute freedom is NOT a good thing in the hands of man.
