Andre Dominic Legalization of Marijuana in Philippines would reduce crimes.
Legalization of marijuana Just because something is Illegal does not mean it is bad. There is evidence of a link between alcohol abuse and violent crime, including domestic violence (Carpenter & Dobkin, 2010; Markowitz, 2000, 2005; Markowitz & Grossman, 1998). Therefore, if the legalization of recreational marijuana leads to reduced alcohol consumption, we expect violent crime to fall. It is also possible that nonviolent crime will fall as policing resources are freed up and reallocated (Miron & Zwiebel, 1995). This paper will propose the moral right of legalizing marijuana on our Country. Many people go against the legalization of marijuana simply because it is “bad” without even actually knowing both sides of legalizing marijuana. That is the reason in spite of the fact that the legitimization of Marijuana can bring about injuries, create addictions, and cause wrongdoings, it can diminished crimes. This paper will discuss the pros and cons of legalizing Marijuana.
