If marijuana is legalized, and there are no more special treatments for marijuana overdose, then what will happen to those that are in need of a treatment? Is it ethical for the government to give up one’s well being just for the sake of money? There are many ways for a government to earn money other than legalizing marijuana.

Cannabis also can be a curable and more natural drug to help people in pain. Marijuana can also raise economic struggle, lower crime rate and make more jobs for many jobless people.

Cigarettes ruins lives it never makes lives better there are some cases where it may, but there is way more cases where it may ruin a person 's life. There may be some negative parts about Prop 56, but there are way more positive things that will happen if Prop 56 passes.

In today’s perspective, California has 39.25 million people, so they would then have an additional 16.95 million added onto it. California would then have 56.2 million people. The population in California keeps on growing and growing until there is no more gold. “By August 1848, 4,000 gold miners were in the area, and within a year about 80,000 “forty-niners” (as the fortune seekers of 1849 were called) had arrived at the California Goldfields. By 1853 their numbers had grown to 250,000.
For decades marijuana was considered to be a dangerous drug, leading to criminal behavior and personal disgrace. “It is time to tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol. It is time to end the arrests of so many people and the destruction of so many lives for possessing marijuana”- Bernie Sanders. However, by now most of these beliefs have been discredited – there is little to no proof that cannabis in and of itself has any conflicting effects. Some studies even show that it is far less dangerous than many completely legal prescription drugs, both for its users and those around them.There is proof of marijuana’s positive medical effects.Marijuana is beneficial for epilepsy patients, it eases nausea caused by chemotherapy and shows good results when used by people suffering from AIDS and a number of other conditions.
Currently the intake of recreational drugs can lead to a fine of $1 million or imprisonment up to 7 years. However these harsh laws are not proving to be effective at deterring drug use. However what could possibly help Hong Kong reduce the amount of drug users, is the decriminalization of drugs. ‘As long ago as 1994, justices Neil Kaplan and Gerard Godfrey said they supported the decriminalisation of cannabis, saying drug laws were failing to curb drug use.’ (Christy Choi). In my personal opinion, I believe that the decriminalization of drugs in Hong Kong would bring more benefits than disadvantages.

From 1920-1933 alcohol was banned in the US but before that time it was legal and then after that time they decided to legalize it again. Legalization of marijuana has no connection with my life since I don 't live in the US and also I don 't use marijuana. In conclusion Marijuana is something you can prosper from in its search.
Each year, the overall prison population surpassed the 1 million mark (Lurigio & Loose, 2008). As a result of the war on drugs, the total number of individuals incarcerated went from 581,000 in 1980 to 1,584,000 by 1997. Strict drug laws have caused incarceration rates to escalate at an alarming pace over the last 40 years. According to the Bureau of Justice Statics, in 1996 the African American incarceration rate was 1,574 per 100,000, seven times higher than the rate for Whites. Researchers have discovered that the war on drugs has led to the overcrowding of African Americans in the prison system (Lurigio & Loose, 2008).
