Pro

It is in the same class as cocaine, yet has the lowest amount of deaths of any drug- 0
zackjo

Con

No because it is a gateway drug, which means it leads to other drugs, and everybody will be high all the time and society will go down.

Can you prove marijuana is a gateway drug? Besides, even though something is bad, does not mean the punishment sould be what it is. Cigarettes are legal and they kill millions per year.

http://www.jstor.org...:

"Since the use of cocaine is associated with problems such as crime, child poverty, poor neonatal health, and the spread of HIV, a gateway effect of marijuana on cocaine could signify a sizable social cost on marijuana." Marijuana itself may have not killed anybody, but it has led to some deaths from other drugs.
