Marijuana Should be legalized. most Americans deal drugs because they are Illegal. Removing laws to make Marijuana illegal would make most Americans feel bored. They would feel that the fun of illegally dealing drugs had passed and that they would have to find other ways. This ends my first argument in the 72 hour debate.

I. Brain Damage
i. Jobs
Who will do the jobs? The marijuana addicts. They develop short-term memory loss, and "random thinking." This would affect the entire society if no one was able to get their jobs done.

ii. Withdrawal
One of the arguments pro-pot people use is that marijuana isn't addictive, 1 in 12 light marijuana smokers go through withdrawal. This could cause violence.
II. Drug Trafficking
Due to drug legalization this could become a hotspot for drug trafficking because drug traffickers could store marijuana legally and then ship it out illegally.
Note: Where is your source that Americans deal drugs because they are illegal?

Marijuana should not be legalized because that would be an open door for criminals to get drunk and smoke which would most likely lead to the cops letting the people out of jail for being on marijuana and maybe they think that once they get out of jail they will do the crimes that they did before they legalized marijuana. SO my standing cause would be No no legal marijuana in oregon.
