Marijuana Legalization in Canada
Debate Rounds (3)
Where would you buy it? The local drug store. They would need to I.D you. The marijuana (now legalized) would be grown, and manufactured safely. It wouldn't be laced with any crazy drugs like fentanyl or something dangerous like that.
After hundreds of years of use of the marijuana drug there's been a perfect rate of absolutely zero recorded deaths. There are very few (less than alcohol) risk that are taken with recreational use of marijuana.
I will wrap this up saying that if you think that it wouldn't be fair not to legalize it, try to see the other side in that it could hurt the picture of our nation (just like alcohol and tobacco do!) Try using the cup analogy for this conflict. Is it half empty, or half full? Is it not fair for it to be legal, or will it just hurt us even further. In reality, it depends on how you look at it in a way.
P.S. This debate only concerns the use of marijuana for the public legally, not for medical uses in hospitals.
But the thing is... marijuana is still being abused no matter what we do. Even if we take extreme measures against marijuana use, people will still continue to use it. Also marijuana isn't addictive so it doesn't really affect our decisions when we aren't high. Also another common misconception that is made is that when people smoke weed they go out of the house and get into trouble and put other people in danger. But that's not the case. When someone smokes weed the only thing they want to do is sit at home, eat a lot of food, and watch movies. Yeah that also intrigues the argument that people are much less productive when they're high. When someone's high they are much more creative. They come up with come with some very useful product and ideas.
http://www.drugabuse.gov...). The article also contains other good points about the drugs affects (I won't site all of them, you'll have to read them yourself). The article uses the word "dependent" and this usually refers to an addiction. It also causes permanent damage to the brain during adolescence, and if we legalize it, than it will allow more adolescents to obtain it more easily. And a concern I have been thinking of is how parents won't be able to stop their children from smoking marijuana when their children grow up. It will be perfectly legal, so the poor parents have to watch their child become an esteemless wreck, and they can't do anything but weep. Is that so great for society? We need to at least consider that. And make sure you read the article, because it has some good points that work great for evidence. (At least for ME!)
