Marijuana Should Be Legalized for recreational purposes , people do it either way , might as well make it legal . I believe sentencing someone to life in prison for something as minuscule as marijuana is ethically and morally wrong. it violates our rights as humans and actions are taken due to racial profiling, and may target one certain group, thus bringing us back to inequality. not only that , but it is unjust to sentence some one for life , for using marijuana, when there are murders and rapists whom only get some years. they are the true criminals, not the marijuana users!
