The prohibition of marijuana does not stop Americans from obtaining the drug, but simply intensifies the unnecessary criminality and danger surrounding its use. Marijuana should be legal to obtain because statistics and scientific studies throughout the world prove that the legalization of the drug would not only make the United States safer, but also benefit the country financially. The criminalization of marijuana has dramatized a violent image of the drug which media outlets exacerbate by using scare tactics and myths. Legalizing marijuana would eliminate any unsafe or uncomfortable means that the over 100 million Americans who have admitted to using the drug currently have to go through to obtain it. This would separate violence, murder, and the sales of other deadly drugs such as cocaine or heroin from recreational marijuana use.
They say that if guns are taken away than it will stop mass shootings. This is wrong however because the guns criminals use most of the time are bought illegally or bought by someone else and given to them. They also may say that the background check needs to be more through. But even if they change the background checks and make them better, these people have been thinking this over and are probably going to be able to get past without being noticed. Since there is no real middle ground than they say that guns should just be taken away for good.
These jobs would involve the production of marijuana and distributing it. Also, legal weed may even be a way to get rid of a good amount of international drug trade. American marijuana distributers have been able to make their own unique strains which could help get rid of drug trade because there would be no more reason to bring in cannabis from other counties
Ecstasy Rising Reflection Paper Shahbaz Khan The University of Georgia Ecstasy Rising Reflection Paper ABC News special “Ecstasy rising” first aired today 13 years ago; the main message of this documentary was how ecstasy has become the second most used illegal psychoactive drug for new users. Ecstasy use has grown at an alarming rate but still, there are many people who believe it can be beneficial. Due to the unpredictable rate at which ecstasy has grown at the government had no control over it, so they radically overstated the health risks in order to stop young people from turning their brain into Swiss cheese. The information provided by the government about ecstasy was totally wrong and it may have caused a bigger problem. The facts about ecstasy use are shocking according to the DEA 100s of millions of ecstasy pills are taken every year and nearly 2 million new users are recruited every year.
Another aspect that is historically significant is the fact that this law did not criminalize the use of narcotics, but only taxed the drugs. Throughout this time period the government believed that Congress was not legally capable of monitoring possession and use because of the Constitution. However, they did believe that they had to power to impose taxes to decrease drug use instead of imposing federal criminal
Where the weapons were obtained in the sandy hook shooting and the Orlando shooting were dramatically different. Lanza took the weapons from his mother who owned them legally, but Lanza was unable to have firearms because of his mental illness. Mateen was cleared by the federal background check even though the FBI did some monitoring on him. His radical beliefs caught the eye of the federal government, but someone 's religion can not be used to stip individuals of their rights. Lastly he explains that, “cultural beliefs are significantly related to people’s opinions about gun control, but the strongest, most consistent predictors of people’s gun control preferences are their political beliefs and affiliations,” (Wozniak 2).
I believe that marijuana should be legal for recreational purposes in the United States. This is because it would provide the United States many benefits if we were to make it legal, and the fact that it actually hurts us as a country by having marijuana illegal. If we were to make it legal, it would make the economy better. It would also bring down crime and get many people out of prison. In addition to this, it would also undo injustices done in the past.
The only reason it was banned was because of a man named William Randolph Hearst wanted to eliminate a textile competitor because he was using hemp to create his textiles. Hearst was big in the media so he launched a marijuana prohibition movement and later got marijuana banned in Congress. Marijuana is easy to cultivate. It is illegal to cultivate a lot at once because even though the state allows it because the federal government never legalized it. In the end, it would greatly help the country and we would
If the government made all illegal drugs legal for recreational use for adults all those criminal organizations wouldn’t exist because they wouldn’t be making any money. Some people may think legalizing drugs well increased the use among teenagers but that wouldn’t be the case. For example in Washington, where marijuana is legal, the number of teenagers smoking marijuana did not increase. The legalization and decriminalize of drugs will decrease the fear teenagers that do drugs have. Which is actually not that bad because the would feel safe.
Prosecutors also say that he was engaged in a scheme to conceal his earnings that amounted to millions of dollars from the IRS. They reported that DMX received millions from the songs he produced. He was able to avoid paying his taxes by creating accounts under different names and often paid large amounts of his expenses in cash. DMX planned on evading his taxes by not setting up any personal bank accounts. According to U.S. Attorney, Joon H. Kim, DMX even declined to tape the TV show, Celebrity Couples Therapy until they issued him a check without withholding taxes.
Marijuana is a much safer and more naturally occurring substance that can be used for all of the previously listed purposes. The federal ban on medical marijuana should be lifted so that patients can have access in all states in the US. Perhaps the largest concern regarding medical marijuana is the question of its medical value, although it is now recognized as a medicine in 28 states. Many among the opposition of the marijuana movement argue that marijuana has no medicinal value and is strictly being used to get people high. This concern is
My party however believes that it should be legalized all round no questions asked even if they can or can 't afford it. This is unmoral and allows people who are sexually active but with no intent to keep a kid to do what they want with no consequences. Being a unreligious person to me, having a child is a spiritual yet soul bonding experience. That shouldn 't be thrown away by legalizing abortion even when they can 't afford it. My personal view on Gun Control is as simple as the last.
