I think that marijuana should be legalized, because if you look back at the great depression, once alcohol was illegal people did it more than they when it was legal. Once alcohol was legalized again, people cut back. Even though marijuana is not very good for you, it should be legalized. Cigarettes are legal, but yet they have cancer causing tar and addictive nicotine (and many other harmful toxins) which put citizens all around the world into the hospital. Cigarettes put people to death or other bad situations. Marijuana can cause health issues, but nothing so horrible that you will die. The only way you can over dose on marijuana is if you intake 15 pounds of it within 1 minute.

Oh no, I DON'T think it should be legalized...
As you can see, the world is currently affected by this so-called organic herb, that particularly can ruin a life.
Yes, it does have some positive effects than the normal cigarette, but exchanging a slight breather for something that can ruin you?
It can damage a person both mentally and physically, and still you want it to be legalized?
Well, we might not know, your facts can be wrong, how about if you'd intake in large numbers? and you said a person cannot die from it, psshh...
How about you try that. And let's see what the results are!

If marijuana was so bad for you, then why do they prescribe it to people for medical purposes. Even though your opinion may look at just the negative side of things, if you take a look at the positive things, people can benefit from it. IT can help people calm down, it can help with glaucoma, and it is a pain reliever. People don't always use it for those purposes yes, but if it were to be legalized people probably wouldn't do as much. People like to be rebellious and not listen. That's how I was when I was younger, and I'm sure that's how you were too. If you take the average stoner and put it up with a little kid, they will most likely do what they were told not to.

Just because you're troubled doesn't mean you can "inspire" us to be like you..
Yeah, it's prescribed by doctors for their patients, but remember the consequences..
Because too much of a good thing is bad.
Do you even watch the news? People using marijuana is very hazardous, it can make them delirious and such.
And you still brag about it being medicinal, it might have some positive effects, but it has A LOT of negative effects
