Why Marijuana Should Be Made Legal In his article, “Drugs: Case for Legalizing Marijuana,” in the September 26, 1970 issue of the New York Times, Gore Vidal argued why marijuana should be made legal. I agree with Gore in his opinion that marijuana should be legal, but don’t agree that it should be sold at cost, that all drugs should be legal, or that it would end most drug addiction in the United States. First, I don’t personally believe that drugs will ever be sold at cost in the United States.

These jobs would involve the production of marijuana and distributing it.
In American society, the use of marijuana, whether it’s medical or recreational, is a highly discussed topic. There are arguments for and against both recreational and medical marijuana. Between the arguments of safety and practicality, the truth about this drug has gotten mixed around and changed. Although it is believed that marijuana would only negatively affect our society, the use should be federally legalized, at least medically, in all 50 states because it has a very low risk when it comes to an individuals health, would improve the economy, and aid medical advances.
