Marijana should be legalized
sms767

Con

Marijuana must be illegal because we as a society have decided that we don't want drugs in our society. It doesn't matter if some individuals disagree with the law. SOCIETY ultimately determines what constitutes acceptable personal behavior. Pepole need to learn to suboordinate their personal opinions to the will of SOCIETY, not the ther way around. Remember that rights are social constructs created by society, and only society has the right to create rights.

Another thing, Drugs are bad, m'kay?

Pro

One thing drugs are man made and you can overdose from them. Marijuana is an herb from earth and you cant overdose from it. Also you said that "society" does not want drugs but why is alcohol and cigarettes legal? They are both drugs in society but yet it is legal.

If Marijuana was harmful to peoples health why would some states have medical marijuana to give to a cancer patient.
Marijuana slows down the cancer growth, not only that but, it also help curve the appetite of somebody who has HIV/AIDS, it helps people with chronic pain, and helps vision with people who have glaucoma.

Marijuana can also help cigarette smokers stop smoking cigarettes.

And if somebody want to have a good time and actually know what they are doing the whole time instead of blacking out, throwing up, getting into violent confrontation, and/or wanting to drive home under the influence I would prefer marijuana (if it was legal).

Some people say that marijuana kills brains cells but that is not entirely true. The lack of oxygen from holding the smoke in is killing brain cells. Like swimming, swimming does not kill brain cells but the lack of getting oxygen while holding your breath is.

Marijuana only gives you short time memory loss when you are under the influence. And only certain types of strains will have the effect. 'Skunk' type strains will give you short term memory loss while, "Hash or herbal cannabis blends performed equally well whether they were stoned or sober," according to http://www.nature.com....
