Also there has been no medical use accepted by the FDA. And even though some physicians recommend its use, they could still be arrested and prosecuted for “aiding and abetting” (Hoffman & Weber, 2010) against the federal law. But for those states that have legalized it, patients could qualify, with or without a card, and be able to use marijuana for certain medical conditions. Many physicians do not know what stance to take on this issue because even if it is legal within the state, they do not want to risk getting their license taken away
There are 3 main reasons why people objected to the legalization of marijuana. First, people who hold the against opinion believed that marijuana has completely no acceptable medicinal use. Second, legalizing marijuana might lead to the rising number of treatment and addiction in the world. Finally, people believed that the injuries and deaths rate from impaired driving might increase because of marijuana legalization. Marijuana should not be legalized because of it lack medicinal use, it encouraged addiction, and it increases the risk of driving accidents.
Either from other countries, or manufacture weapons themselves. For Example, in the article, “The Assault Weapon Ban Should Not Be Reinstated”, the author states, “ Mexico has some of the strictest gun control laws on earth, yet a large number of weapons are smuggled in from other places.” Take this quote for example, mexico has strict gun laws, but there is still weapons getting into Mexico. People in America would do that. Another example from the article “Argument Against Gun Control”, the author states, “This is the newest iteration of the popular talking point that gun laws cannot work because criminals won 't follow them. As Marco Rubio often proclaimed during the primary campaign: "My skepticism about gun laws is criminals don 't follow the law.” People won’t follow laws.
This means, that the first amendment ensures that the United States does not have state endorsed religion, nor does it write its laws based on religious edicts. This clause in the constitution deals with religious monuments and school prayers. It also forbids the government from preferring religion over non-religion or non religion over religion. Furthermore, the free exercise clause in a way is more straightforward; which means, that one cannot pay for exercise. Simply, it means that one cannot be prohibited from being part of a certain religion, although it does not mean that any religious practice is
A public school is a government institution. The government and government institutions are unable to endorse a religion as it is a violation of church and state. Therefore, public schools are unable to have school officiated or led prayer, as that endorses religion. There are also laws against prayer in schools. School prayer is illegal, so having a school officiated prayer can lead to fines and other litigation.
Over the past ten years the topic of marijuana legalization has been very controversial and people have had very strong opinions about it. In the early 1900’s marijuana actually became associated with immigrants, turning people away from the substance because they thought it was “dirty”. During the Great Depression people began associating immigrants with crimes and violence, therefore associating marijuana with crimes and violence (PBS). However, in todays’ society many people believe that the drug could be beneficial for treating cancer, anxiety, and chronic pain. Some even think that recreational marijuana should be legalized.
The main ethical challenge about the use of medical marijuana is the fact that many people are against drug use and marijuana is an illegal substance in many parts of Australia. Being a new topic there are very few philosophical events/report that analyse medical marijuana, however, the rule of utilitarianism can still be applied. Utilitarianism is a theory where the pros and cons are evaluated on the outcomes of choosing one action/policy over other actions/policies, it takes the action and interests of others into account (na, 2003, Online Guide to Ethics and Moral Philosophy). The use of medical marijuana obeys the theory of Utilitarianism as it benefits the minority of people that require access to the drug and does not cause any harm to those who do not require the drug. It has become clear that the position of ethicist must be with the use of medical marijuana as it provides the most favourable outcome for the entire
In the end, a majority of the judges ruled that the section 2 of the VRA is too ambiguous, thus the section cannot be applied to the felony disenfranchisement laws in New York, as the original intent of the VRA was not focused on felon disenfranchisement laws (“Key Issues in Hayden v. Pataki”). However, based on the dissenting opinions of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, the second section of the Voting Rights Act clearly states that no state should be able to pass a law that emplaces a “voter qualification”, which bars a certain racial minority’s ability to vote (Goldstein
Not only does the state of Florida not restrict who can buy a gun, but it is illegal for them to keep a database of all the people who own guns, according to USA today. This needs to change. There is nothing protecting the citizens of Florida from tragedies like the shooting at Majority Stoneman Douglas High School from occurring again. People need to realize that this is not an either gun or mental health issue. It is the fact that gun control laws do not stop the mentally ill from obtaining a dangerous firearm.
America was not to be considered for future colonization by Europe, because it was the land of the free. The speech was meant to cast light on the independent condition of the United States. For this reason, American was not going to take part in any European war. Only in the event in which the United States were to be threatened and put in danger, a war could be considered in order to protect America’s rights, peace and safety. In addition, the events in Spain and Portugal had shown the instability of the European system, and Monroe didn’t want anything to do with Europe internal matters.
It stated “Every person who imports, manufactures, produces, compounds, sells, deals in, dispenses, prescribes, administers, or gives away marihuana shall...pay...special taxes”. “ Rather than making marijuana possession illegal directly, the law required you to purchase a tax stamp in order to possess marijuana legally. Because the taxes were set prohibitively high, it discouraged compliance, creating de facto prohibition”. Prior to the implementation of the tax act, there was much discussion within the American government over the use of cannabis. Although the industrial use of hemp was common prior to the implementation of the tax act, recreational use was not and many people did not approve the use of the
Marijuana is a controversial topic in America leaving everyone wondering, should it be or should it not be legal? Myself, having the similar question, looked at two different viewpoints regarding the issue. Only instead of primarily focusing on strictly marijuana legalization, I chose to specifically search for legalization of cannabidiol, oil that derives from cannabis. With using cannabis oil, or any drug, there is a risk that the product will give side effects, whether good or bad. According to Professors Wayne Hall and Louisa Degenhardt, they argue the latter: that non-medicinal use of cannabis has negative effects on a person’s health.
Should the right to bears arms be more restricted? The governments primary role is to protect the right 's of law abiding citizens, so when did restricting those rights become so popular? The school and mass shooting 's that have plagued our country over the recent years have been the result of mentally disturbed criminals. The fundamental problem with gun bans or further restricting gun rights is that it only works on citizens that are already predisposed to obey the law in the first place. Criminals, which by definition have no regard for the law, will not be phased by the governments restrictions with such laws.
to its present situation in the United States, the contrast between the accusation of marijuana abuse from politicians and the notable amount of people involved in cannabis use during their life time.
