Should marijuana be legal?

should weed be legal in the states as most people smoke it anyways

Answer #1

dont even know what reefer madness is I know how marijuana effect people not only does it impare there judgement but having dealers everywere selling drugs and marijuana will increase crime and violence despite what most people think, it doesnt make everyone calm and relaxed because it effects everyone differently and if drugs were legal, people inhibitians are going to be greatly decreased if we make drugs legal, people will think that gives them the right to do other illegal things and when chicks smoke a lot, they dont always make the best judgments and there more likley to end up with regrets …it not just something that everyone smokes too much and there going too sleep other things happen also little kids are going to think its okay to get into

Answer #2

I think it should stay illegal. And smoking should become illegal too. Just watching my mother cough her lungs out every night is not exactly nice to see.

Answer #3

ecstasy used to be legal before 75 and it only became illegal because people were stacking (taking more and more of it) and at that time people werent involuntarily killing people just because of the drug…

Answer #4

O_o make it legal already im getting sick of hanging out in corners and having to walk 30 mins to get to the “zone” as id call it… jaz marijuana doesnt make you violent on the other hand it actually makes you LESS…

people would be too stoned to get off their asses not to mention violence

Answer #5

jazlovestoskate Hah, wow how would marijuana being legal cause rape and violence to increase. Have you ever smoked marijuana seriously, because you seem to know nothing of how it effects you. I think you’ve watched reefer madness too many times and been misinformed.

Answer #6

no just because “most people” do something illegal doesnt mean it should all of a sudden become legal and if it did things like rape and violence will greatly increase

Answer #7

About the cancer causing properties of Tobacco and Marijuana: Marijuana HAS got more cancer causing properties than Tobacco. HOWEVER the THC and CBD are very very powerful anti cancer agents, cancelling out all the cancer causing properties of the herb itself, and then cancelling out other toxins you inhale.

Legality: I would like it to be legal. However I would not like the prefered method for ingestion to be smoking; food, vaporising, drinking and other methods being much more preferable in my opinion.

Answer #8

I think it should be legal but there has been no studies on long term marijuana use causing cancer. so we don’t really know if that is true yet. I think marijuana smoke is potentially as bad for your lungs as tobacco smoke because cigarette smokers do not normally hold the smoke in their lungs for extended periods of time like a large majority marijuana users do, probably raising your chances of emphysema later on in life. but ya there are plenty of legal things that are unhealthy for you including different over the counter medicines on the market doesn’t really make sense why weed isn’t legal.

Answer #9

hollywoodundead1 Caffiene is a mind altering drug also, yet we let our children have that at any age.

I would not mind if my son decided to smoke marijuana when he was older. It does not cause cancer, like ciggarettes do, it does not kill people, like alcohol does. People say it’s addicting. I have been into drug and alcohol counseling and still go to meetings twice a week (for other substances), addiction is a disease that not everyone has. If you have an addictive personality, you can be addicted to ANYTHING, not just drugs. If you dont have an addictive personality, you can simply put down things no problem. People try drugs every day and dont get addicted to them. It all depends on if they had that in them to begin with.

Answer #10

In my honest opinion, I think It should stay illegal. Too many children are getting into it, and for them it’s just way too easy to get a hold of. Yes, it’s true, there is worse drugs out there. And alcohol too. But believe it or not, marijuana is a drug too. Would you want your children smoking weed? I didn’t think so.

Answer #11

Yes. It is a natural herb that is not man-made. There are far worse drugs out there that are legal. Alcohol - kills millions of people a year. Marijuana - None. The reason’s why it’s illegal have nothing to do with health, and everything to do with corporate america and the government not being able to tax it because it can be home grown so easily.

Answer #12

easy way to fix that make it for 18 or 21 years of age

Answer #13

there has been no studies on long term marijuana use causing cancer, so we don’t know that yet

Answer #14

hollywoodundead1 Also you dont seem to understand what a drug is. Yes marijuana is a drug, so is alcohol, and so is caffiene.

Answer #15

its legal in amsterdam

Answer #16

There are more toxins in ciggarette smoke however, that is why it causes lung cancer and marijuana does not.

Answer #17

it should be legal for every reason it helps regulate everything in the human body

These are some of the comments I have copied from a forum

-pharmaceuticals are known to kill more people than illegal drugs

-marijuana is the number 1 cash crop in the world it serves as a natural medicine and has many other uses thats why they prohibited it so big companies can make more profit thanks to “bad journalism”

-can also help aids patients, aids diminishes appetite have them smoke a joint and they regain their appetite counteracting the illness

-no one can die from smoking cannabis and has been no known deaths compared to everything else including alcohol, tobacco, etc..

I myself have asthma and smoking opens up my airways making it easier to breathe with no side effects when medically legalized in my state I look foward to becoming a patient for prescription marijuana. 12 states have already legalized it along with other countries in the world and more following my job is to educate people that are not aware of the plants uses


-I did most of my research through websites, books, magazines, and the news high times magazine etc..

  • theres more to it than just getting high and I believe legalizing it would make this a better world to live in

-God bless the whole crop!

  • and for people that dont smoke, you dont need to smoke it to support it

-all the better reason for the government to legalize.. couple reasons why it should be legalized: -will be removed from black market and stop empowering gang members -medical reasons -would be sold like alcohol, remember alcohol was once prohibited too (in stores away from children, have to be 21+) -would be a law that you cant drive while intoxicated on weed -prison population would lower (prisons are overcrowding with nonviolent offenders) -keep patients from being convicted -would provide millions of jobs for people -would make us an independent country (fuel, etc.., debt free america)

people with an addiction (including hard drugs) shouldnt be thrown in jail, they need help theres more people in jail with mental illnesses than there are in mental institutions

the list goes on

  • the War on Drugs is a failure, its a war on its own people. policies need to be changed we pay billions in taxpayers money to keep the war going and neither side is winning thats just a waste of our tax money I wonder what they do with all that money.. those greedy bastards just sell drugs back onto the street, you can even check urself on that there was a time when there was a cia operation transporting drugs overseas into america the government also provided Rick Ross with plenty of heroin to go around, course making money from it

the truth must be exposed, theyre dirty work must stop!

-Of course we can do something about it, we all just need to unite screw the federal government remember slavery? if no one stood up im pretty sure it would still be going on people were tortured, beaten, killed and thrown in jail but that didnt stop them standing up for their rights eventually slavery was abolished same with alcohol prohibition eventually became re-legalized

  • its like theres some kind of conspiracy going on I sense the government is up to no good and trying to control us. credit cards, money, and now they have chips that can be implanted in skin for uselful reasons but if in the wrong hands well were pretty much fuct they hiding the truth from us its dangerous to be right when the government is wrong they got theyre privacy but we dont. they want to know everything were doing on our leisure time

get up stand up!

  • marijuanas not anti-establishment because its illegal, its illegal because its anti-establishment

all facts stated have been double-checked and confirmed what more info? lets all make this a better place to live in!
