Some states have already legalized marijuana for recreational and medical purposes. The government in the USA keeps fighting this natural product and destroying lives on account of this drug. It has been proven to be even better than alcohol and many other things in this world. Weed being a natural product has many advantages and disadvantages but the good outweighs the bad. Marijuana is not as harmful to the body as other intoxicants like alcohol, cigarettes and many more.
These people claim that smoking marijuana is harmful to the lungs and brain development of teenagers. Cigarettes have the same, if not greater, damaging effect on human lungs yet the government does not infringe upon Americans’ right to take such health risks. Although there have been no scientific study to validate that smoking marijuana damages brain development, a simple resolution would be to make the legal age for smoking and possessing marijuana in the mid 20’s when the brain is completely developed. The argument of the dangers of marijuana can also be made for the opposing side. Illegal and unregulated marijuanna posing far more dangers to people than if marijuana was regulated by the government.
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.
In this way, marijuana legalization in Colorado could hardly be concluded as a success. Marijuana legalization has caused social corruption and damaged the youth with a wrong educational environment. The use of marijuana had grown more through the legalization and become more common and familiar to adolescents. As Hopfer (2014) states marijuana legalization arouses a growth of marijuana use and associated issues, as it has been proved and therefore, the rest states should continue to prohibit
I think that if it were to be legalized here in my state of Illinois, then there should be a limit on it, like there is with alcohol, for driving purposes. Obviously, marijuana stimulates the body by sending it into a relaxation mode and this could be dangerous depending on the dosage you use. So, I think that it would be beneficial to have some sort of testing device just to be sure we are keeping everyone safe. But in the long run, helping people with severe medical related conditions, being able to free up jail space, and bringing in a larger revenue to the states would benefit everyone. In my opinion, every state eventually is going to have marijuana legalized because I am sure that all of this information has been brought to their attention before, but this is just a time taking process as the population grows and they begin to see a huge change in the total United States
The legalization of Marijuana Desmond "I think if you actually look at the sort of marijuana on sale today, it is actually incredibly damaging, very, very, toxic, and in any case leads to huge mental health problems" said by David Cameron, Former British Prime Minister. The rising concern about the use of marijuana is severe recently. There are numbers of objections about the legalization of marijuana that people are concern about the negative influence of it. But the Canadian government insists despite the counter opinion from the public that made marijuana legalized. There are 3 main reasons why people objected to the legalization of marijuana.
Unconstitutional meaning that it violates the welfare patients human rights. The reasoning behind drug testing the welfare patients is because they suspect something that is unfair to the welfare patients.One of the federal governments in the state of florida required that welfare patients some unwillingly to do mandatory drug testing. Doing this will affect many people all throughout America (Robles). Based off of the evedine many welfare patients in florida felt intimidated by this because there human rights are being violated. This shows why drug testing welfare patients is unconstitutional.
In recent years there has been a debate on whether or not to legalize marijuana for medical use. People fear that it might be abused by others claiming to need it while those that truly need it, get put on the sidelines. Marijuana can be a hot topic, but with research people can come to understand why it should be legalized for medical use. For example, Amy and Lou Weiss are new marijuana entrepreneurs and they believe that their business can help those in pain. In their article called, “We Got into Medical Marijuana to Help People, Now We’re Under Siege”, in the Washington Post they prompt the idea that medical marijuana is needed to help ease pain, but major flaws such as logical fallacies can make it harder for the reader to comprehend
It is known that there has been an ongoing debate about legalizing marijuana for medical use, but why? Is it because legislature has not given this problem as much attention as medical professionals? Many who are for it says that it is not addictive, hard to overdose on unlike other illegal drugs, and is very useful medicinal wise. Although, those who are against it say otherwise, calling it a gateway drug. The fight is over how the state and federal laws differ, what the rules for physicians prescribing it would be, and where to get it.
Some believe that this is a terrible amendment to have our country live by, this group supports enforcing gun laws or even abolishing guns all together. This is not the only side of the argument though, there are opposers to enforcing gun laws that believe that there are already enough laws for buying guns and what you can do with them. The opposers also believe that we should focus more of our efforts on the mental health of the people instead of the guns they use. The debate on gun control is a very pressing matter. Some believe that the laws on gun control should be stricter, while others believe the laws should be looser for self-defense and hunting.
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.
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
