Even worse, ideas that the use of marijuana fuels the involvement of the user into other heinous crimes has even been argued. According to a Human Rights Watch report, 30,000 New Yorkers who were arrested for possession never had prior convictions or felonies (New York Times, 2014). Legalizing marijuana would be beneficial because it can be controlled. The government has controlled alcohol and tobacco exceptionally well. With the use of underage drinking laws and tobacco taxation, the number of underage drinkers and smokers has dropped.
The reactive oxidant substances generated by smoking induce inflammation in the lung and its airway (61); cigarette smoking causes an inflammatory process in the central airways, peripheral airways, and lung parenchyma, which is present even in smokers with normal lung function (62). In general, the inflammatory and structural changes in the airways increase with disease severity and persist despite smoking cessation. Cigarette smoking contributes to remarkable risk factors of noncommunicable diseases, including coronary heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, peripheral vascular disease, peptic ulcer disease and tuberculosis. Cigarette smoking is strongly associated with lung cancer, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, cardiovascular disease, and other serious internal diseases and cancers[50–54]. The non-stop chronic inhalation of cigarette smoke alters a wide range of immunological functions, including innate and adaptive immune

The U.S. has a problem that needs to be fixed, the problem they are currently facing is underage drinking. This problem has been going on for a few years now, but there just hasn’t been an effective solution to stop it.

This is a problem because it is a safety issue and when teens are drunk, they tend to make stupid decisions.

In the “Marijuana: A Continuing Concern for Pediatricians” article the author points out the fact that marijuana is in fact “an addictive, mind-altering drug capable of inducing dependency” (Marijuana: A Continuing Concern). After some research this statement has been clearly supported. According to the author of “Marijuana: Breaking Down the Buzz” being under the influence of the drug has led to very poor decisions. Some of the poor decisions teenagers make while being under the influence include; people not completing high school, having failing grades if they are still in school, and doing reckless things while behind the wheel of a vehicle.
