im for legalizing marijuana because it will bring lots of money into are government. plus were always told we have a free country so why are they telling us what we cant it in our body. right now since they say it is illegal i don't think we have a free country

Legalizing marijuana would cause a lot of pain to people around the world. Having this type of drug legalized would cause tons of more deaths and illnesses. Marijuana is a dad drug that should never be legal anywhere.

You should check your facts before posting because there have been no reported deaths from marijuana

I never said that people died from it. I just said that there were alot of people who can not stop using it. Marijuana is one of the most smuggled drugs in the world. people can take drugs into any country and that country is now broke because of the amount of marijuana smuggled in.

what you dont realize is that if those countries would legalize marijuana look how much money they would be bringing in. they wouldn't be poor anymore.

If the countries legalized marijuana it would make alot of country's rich by selling them, but it would cause the countries to go bankrupt and it would shut down all of the places that are trying to help stop the use of drugs.

'Legalizing marijuana would cause a lot of pain to people around the world. Having this type of drug legalized would cause tons of more deaths and illnesses. Marijuana is a dad drug that should never be legal anywhere.' There has been no documented death out of Marijuana use and in fact Marijuana can help cure illneses for example brain tumours , also even if it was highly harmful which is not it is the decision of the person taking it , who are we to impose our own morality onto what people choose to put inside their bodies ? . Last thing , Cannabis legalization would destroy or at least reduce the black market therefore purifying the drug and it would be of higher quality making it even less harmful than it already is .
