Many argue the legalization of marijuana, so I ask you why you would not want it to be legalized? It helps slow the growth of cancer cells and it is helping places who have already legalized it gain money from being able to sell/tax it.

Marijuana also has negative effects on the brain, and if you are trying to give an economical advantage to legalizing marijuana than wouldn't legalizing heroine also bring more money into the picture?

What negative effects does it have? It may put your brain cells to sleep but it doesn't even kill them. Heroin has a LOT of negative effects which is why we shouldn't condone it. Someone who does heroin while pregnant then makes the baby addicted to it where if you smoke weed while pregnant, there are no known negatives to it.

PRO. If it is to be legalized it should be taxed and only for health purposes. I don't want to be on the roads with someone high but I rather it be a high person than someone who has alcohol in there system.

Con, studies have shown that marijuana decreases an individuals memory after smoking it for 27 days. This leads to students having trouble with school and keeping their grades up.

Con, the government already have two heroin substitutes (methadone and buprenorphine) that it treats heroin addicts with which can be legally obtained through local health departments (at least in North Carolina).
