Legalization of Marijuana

 

THIS ESSAY WAS WRITTEN AS AN ENGLISH ASSIGNMENT WHERE THE WRITER WAS ASKED
TO TAKE THE PRO VIEW ON LEGALIZING MARIJUANA
I, for one, believe that Marijuana should be legalized. I have several 
reasons for this, the main
one is that it would almost completely eliminate the crime and other 
problems associated with
the drug. We would need fewer police officers looking for pot, we could 
concentrate drug
education in schools on the more grievously damaging drugs (heroin, 
cocaine, LSD).

The only long term effects marijuana has on a person are the same as with 
cigarettes. No one
would dare prohibit the sale and possession of those, and pot isn't 
treated with an array of
chemicals. It's just picked, dried, and smoked. Marijuana has similar 
short term effects as
those of beer, but more relaxing. Marijuana tends to mellow a person, 
while alcohol might
make someone violent. Plus alcohol contrivutes to brain and liver 
damage.

I can not say that I completely advocate the recreational uses of 
marijuana, but it nothing else
there are definitely medicinal uses such as the treatment of glaucoma. 
It also tends to increas
the appatites of terminaly ill AIDS patients who otherwise wouldn't have 
the desire to eat.

I think the repercussions of legalizing pot would be almost completely 
beneficial to society as
a whole. The beneficial effects outweigh the adverse. This subject 
should be seriously
investigated by our government.
