The recreational use of marijuana is, in most states in the USA, illegal. This rule is outdated and has no real purpose. I think that we should make the recreational use of marijuana legal

I know when looking at all the other nations in the world some might think that we're missing out. But the truth is that marijuana is a mind-altering substance. We don't need to encourage this kind of activity. More likely than not, this would get into the hands of high school teenagers. I'm not saying that they don't already get it, but its availability would be a disaster.

Just because something degrading is happening in society that is trying to push the law a certain way, it doesn't mean we should let it happen and call it "progress."
