MArijuana should be legalized. It doesn't hurt many people and if we were to sell it in stores, there won't be a high chance of people lacing it. We could also make it harder for kids to get it if you have to be a certain age to buy it. People are gonna smoke it either way, so might as well give them what they want.............

To start with my First Pillar. Marajuana should not be banned because first of all if it were to be legalized it would poison our crops. This will pollute the facilities and homes around us. Now, are you stating this is for medicinal, or another thing.
Drug-impaired driving will also increase if marijuana is legalized. Marijuana is already a significant causal factor in highway crashes, injuries and deaths. In a recent national roadside survey of weekend nighttime drivers, 8.6 percent tested positive for marijuana or its metabolites, nearly four times the percentage of drivers with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 g/dL (2.2 percent).

Marijuana is safe. Many people who do it do it for coping,not just for fun or to get that high. Many people use it for medical uses and/or coping. It can keep people from committing suicide from depression. People feel giddiness,and happiness from it. It is the least dangerous of all drugs....... Would you rather more people die from suicide, or selling crack or cocaine on the streets than people doing marijuana legaly? i know I wouldn't.
