Ok, I have been seriously looking up on this. Here’s a list of the pros and cons that I have gathered from a particular site.
If marijuana is legalized, we would severely cut the sells in the black market and the violence associated with the drug. But by legalizing the drug, there is a chance that more people will start using the drug and become addicted.
If marijuana is not legalized because of the health risks that accompany its use, then the sale and use of marijuana is tougher to purchase, thus potentially decreasing its use and frequency of addiction. A decrease in the use of marijuana means decreasing the health risks such as slow brain function or cancer. There are fewer risks for those that are indirectly involved with the use of marijuana; second hand smoke, being injured due to the influence of the marijuana smoke. The one negative is that people who use marijuana for treatment of pain associated with diseases such as cancer would be unable to use them.
Marijuana could be legalized for the people who need it for medicinal purposes, and with a doctor’s consent. One positive is that it insures people who need it for pain relief have access to it. It limits the legal sell to people who are using it for medicinal purposes rather then personal use. The sale of marijuana as a prescription drug would serve as a source of income for the government. But there is a chance that doctors will become part of the black market and sell the prescriptions to people who want instead of just the people who need it. The use of marijuana as a pain treatment may cause the patient to solely depend on it rather then the medical treatment.
Marijuana could not be legalized because of the societal implications that accompany its use. One positive to this aspect is that some addicts of marijuana are willing to put their whole life savings into buying the drug. If the drug stays illegal it will decrease the amount of money the government will pay for the social assistance of these addicts. The one negative to this reason is that some individuals are not able to function without the assistance of marijuana. If it is more difficult for them to obtain the drug, they might not be able to function effectively in society.
The government could legalize marijuana since people are using it anyway. The government could use the income of marijuana to lower the national debt. There may likely be an increase in people having to go to rehabilitation facilities which come at the cost of taxpayers and the government.
Marijuana could only be legalized for individuals that are the age of 21. This would decrease the likelihood of marijuana being bought by young children. These individuals are considered adults and are able to make their own decisions pertaining to the drug use. One negative is that in the Christian faith the body is considered to be a temple of God and it is unholy to fill the body with toxins of any kind, regardless of age. Health risks related to the use of the drug is a factor.
But when you smoke pot you don't care whether or not you are abusing it, its the fact that you just want that sensation so you can please yourself for so long of a time.
like the guy in ur sig with the scyte.
ull get so addicted ull end in the stop light asking for quarters.
I think the marijuana should be band
another reason is because the goberment help's mre for those that sell drugs and use them and does who are not the gotta work hard.
Besides it only makes more death evry day.
People die more from eating fast food than smoking pot and getting cancer I promise you that. So why is marijuana more dangerous?
Marijuana has been shown to be effective in reducing the nausea induced by cancer chemotherapy, stimulating appetite in AIDS patients, and reducing intraocular pressure in people with glaucoma, and will effect ur mind(loco). In other words ull die slower but with more pain and u say that marijuana is not bad but some day u'll get tired of it and try a stronger drug am i right?
Marijuana is just the started for addictisy in AIDS.
When you smoke pot so much a day and can't control it, this is when you want to move to bigger and more dangerous drugs to get that super high; that is the only side effect I consider dangerous when using pot moving to a stronger drug.
if you really think about it if they Legalization Marijuana people with extreme pain that could be caused by almost anything can get some f****** medicen that dosnt take so long to kick in
