Why Marijuana should be Legalized

301 posts in this topic

Yeah, they are goofs with their own body shops and various businesses.

Chronic marijuana use creates issues with your memory period, whether you believe it or not.

Keep on puffing, you will realize it or forget in time anyways. :lol:

Why marijuana should remain illegal:

People over use it. There is no control or moderation any more.

I used to think it should be legal now I am not so sure anymore.

Medicinal reasons for sure, but for recreational use, not sure I like the idea of young kids smoking weed and burning brain cells.

Where's Tommy Chong when you need him? ;)

Seriously though, as one poster already pointed out, there's not been a single death, other than an allergic reaction attributed to the use of marijuana...but the reason it will NEVER be completely legal, is too many people would lose too much money (from kickbacks and other sordid ways) and they simply will never allow that to happen.

It should certainly be legalized for three reasons:

1) To control distribution and prevent underage usage.

2) To generate revenue from taxation.

3) To eliminate illegal trafficking rings (most consumers would shy away from illegal activity if it's easier to obtain by legal means).

That said, I support the legalization of marijuana because it would be, in fact, a slap in the face to a certain portion of the marijuana-smoking demographic.

I like the backhanded points made here by CollegeHumor:

Legalization would change the culture of marijuana consumption, perhaps make it less desirable or illustrious to some, and would feed the economy. Tax it, control it, dilute it, and eliminate the pothead culture.

I wouldn't say never, there's more of a chance of it happening in Canada. We are allowed to smoke, regulate and sell the plant on April 20th in downtown Vancouver, buy seeds and glass from hemp shops, yet it is strictly illegal to grow it? How stupid does that sound.

One of the main reasons it will be pushed to remain illegal is billions of dollars would be lost in pharmaceutical companies. Why legalize this plant that can treat over 250 medical conditions when we're making more money this way.

Edit: Awesome sig btw, is that Alexi? B)

Burning brain cells? Really? Look at any scientific study and the worst thing that happens is reversible change in the hippocampus to inhibit the conversion of short term to long term memories. Stop, and it goes back to normal. Why it's not legalized.... prisons make too much money and lobbyists (is that how you say it?)are throwing at the money at the government (In the US, anyway) to keep it illegal.

CollegeHumor makes all these same points in a pretty humorous way:

Amen, I absolutely hate the smell of it if nothing else. And while there are high people that can function alright, just as there are "happy" drunks, for the most part both turn into complete idiots you just can't stand to be around. Although maybe I just live a very fulfilling life where I get high and drunk from it in a figurative sense and see absolutely no need to waste my time being impaired by any kind of drug.

All that junk is like a rocking chair, it keeps you busy and gets you nowhere.

I added a third reason while typing my post, and didn't edit that sentence. Apologies. That typo is humorous in our current context of discussion, I must admit.
