My stance is that marijuana should remain illegal because weed is addictive, damaging to mental and physical health, and can ruin people's lives.

Weed should be legalized because it is a person's choice. Also If cigarettes and liquor (which are tons wise than weed) then I definitely think weed should be legalized. I think the age legal age should be 22 but still weed shouldn't be considered as bad as cocain. I still think it should be highly discourgaged @ schools and on tv. I await your responce.

By legalizing this addictive drug, we are allowing it to become increasingly more accessible - especially to young people. When children are exposed to this drug, they become completely different in a negative way. School is out in the very back if their minds and at the bottom of their priority list. This leads to bad grades, not getting into college, not getting a good job, and not living a good life. "Heavy cannabis use in adolescence causes persistent impairments in neurocognitive performance and IQ, and use is associated with increased rates of anxiety, mood and psychotic thought disorders." "...Students who use marijuana have lower grades and are less likely to get into college than nonsmokers. They simply do not have the same abilities to remember and organize information compared to those who do not use these substances." In conclusion, weed will damage the new generation of adults, and our society as a whole. Source : http://townhall.com...

Banning it isn't going to stop people from having it. However, de-banning it, will cause it to be more available, especially to impressionable, young children

Don't you know, weed is marijuana, and it is being legalized slowly in the States. There's one state that has legalized it, and no ones complaining, and the governments getting more profit.
