Should weed be legalized? Not for recreational use, per say, but for medical and substitution uses. Hemp instead of wood, instead of Chemo, instead of cigarettes?
AuthorAndrew

Recreational use of marijuana should be legalized, but as a privilege. There should be three requirements needed to allow someone to legally consume marijuana.

First, the consumer must be over the age of twenty-one. This rule would be in place to protect the school-aged youth. Early usage of marijuana and other drugs can alter the development of the body and brain of a child or teen. It can result in the stunting of growth, mental issues, and even retardation.

Second, consumers must, just like driving, take an informative class followed by a test to see how well they learned. At many college campuses across the U.S. there has been programs put in place that teach students of drinking age the science and consequence of the consumption and over-use of alcoholic beverages. The results showed a significant decline in alcohol related incidents in students who had taken the class.

Third, the consumer must not have a past in substance abuse. If here is even one offense the consumer will not be allowed to legally receive marijuana. If the consumer has a past in substance abuse the producer runs the risk of being held responsible for allowing the consumer to have the drug. Allowing a consumer with a history of drug abuse may also endanger those surrounding.
