Should marijuana be legalized for recreational use?

  • Marijuana should be legalized.

    I believe the legalization of marijuana would be good for not only the people who already use it but the community and state as well. The legalization of marijuana could dismantle the black market, tax revenue, and open the opportunity for police to focus on more violent crimes. I am a college student who is majoring in psychology to become a drug and alcohol counselor. I see a lot of debates saying it makes you loose brain cells, or it makes you lazy however I smoke marijuana daily work full time as well as go to school full time and hold a 3.9 GPA. Also people say it is addictive which is false. I can stop at any time I choose and have no withdraws (I have done it multiple times) I have anxiety and use marijuana to help that way I dont have to take multiple pills everyday that just puts me out of it.

  • It's great for you mental health

    It helps you if you have Anxiety or any other mental heath issues, marijuana helps fight cancer cells, it's better than criminalizing it. Reduces diabetes and obesity. It better than cigarettes and it helps you for if you have a panic attack you can take some and calm down be chill

  • It should be legal.

    There have been no marijuana-related deaths. It has no addictive properties. By legalizing marijuana Colorado has gained over $200 million dollars in taxes and fees. This can reduce the overpopulation in prisons, the funding can be raised to make the facilities better even. Marijuana is not a dangerous plant. It is safer than peanuts. Peanuts kill around 100 people annually.

  • Say yes to pot!

    It is ok to get drunk and act like an idiot, but is frowned upon to smoke a blunt and eat a pizza. Alcohol damages the liver and cigarettes kill you slowly and lead to cancers while marijuana fights those cancers with little effect. Its time for the age of mother nature to take over.

  • Its A Major Health Benefit for All

    Marijuana in its purest form is one of the best healers to this date. Not only does it make you feel ten times better but it can cure things such as anxiety, cancer, sleeping problems, autism, ALS. There have been 0 results of deaths from straight , good, and not ruffied pot. If we do legalize the one thing I would say is if you are driving with it and you are high the cop has a right to take your privileges away because that is not safe, but just walking around, in your house, and socially has never been an issue In the 100 years that we have known of this amazing drug.

  • The only reason why i would legalize it is because of its health benefits

    I like toasting waffles and then getting a frozen banana out of the fridge and put it on the waffle. I may sometimes get sick and occasionally poop mu pants but its still great. But after i started doing this my parent think i should take marijuana because ui have some mental diseas or something

  • Benefits Everybody, including government

    Medical cannabis has health benefits for people with diseases such as autism, cancer and tourettes, because the CBD oil calms the nerves and shrinks cancer cells. As far as recreational use, everybody should have the right to smoke cannabis if they choose to. Smoking marijuana its self has never killed a single person. The only way it could kill you is if somebody dropped 500 pounds of it on your head from up in the sky. Taxing the plant could pay off the governments debt, and create jobs and grow the country overall. Also, marijuana is classified as a schedule one drug, up there wit heroin and cocaine, which are both addictive and deadly. Those drugs are man made and unnatural, while marijuana has been on this planet forever. Many famous people smoked marijuana, such as Barack Obama, and Abraham Lincoln, AND George Washington grew hemp for a cash crop. Hemp, which can be used to make paper for schools and clothes for stores.

  • It is good

    It is good because if helps with a lot of things such as sleep if you have problems going to sleep just light up a bowl and see for yourself. But not just sleeping there be studies were it has been proven to help pains or ache in you bodies all the way to making paper for schools. So my question is why? Why would you make a plant illegal if it has so many good benefits and could help the people of this world ?

  • Yes marijuana should be legalized for recreational use.

    There are many cases that show that marijuana helps with cancer, and can help it from not coming back. Marijuana helps with depression, and your mental state. Marijuana is not addictive, ask any user. Also marijuana is taxable and can help the united states in many ways. So yeah that's my argument

  • Marijuana is bad

    =Marijuana Sales: Bad or good?
    Marijuana sales in Colorado skyrocketed after the government changed the law about recreational use of the dangerous plant, Marijuana. Marijuana is the drug usually used in a cigarette that people smoke, commonly known as Pot, or Weed. It is one of the most recognizable plant in the world. It has a drug inside the cigarette called THC which is causes the “high” feeling. This drug has been around for a long time, since ancient Egypt. It is known to damage your short term memory. The law changed so that you may buy Marijuana for recreational use. Many people like the idea of this change in law and some don’t. I think that this was a very horrible idea and say that Marijuana sales of recreational use is a very dangerous idea and could get many people killed. People could get high on Marijuana and cause a car crash and several people could die or get injured. People also get cancer very easily from smoking pot. Drug dealers could sell it in states where the law still stands about non-recreational use of Marijuana. Officer Susi came in about the DARE program and talked to us all about how dangerous it is to use Marijuana and other drugs in abusive ways. It deforms your cells which might kill you. It is very likely to get in the hands of experimenting teens. This could ruin their entire life. There is a very high chance of getting addicted and you could get an overdose. Some people think that smoking Pot can help you and is totally safe. Who would smoke a very dangerous drug that could kill you very easily once you are hooked? Who would put there life at risk for just a good feeling? I think that any state like Colorado that accepts recreational use of Marijuana is in for a big, bad, dangerous surprise.

  • Say no to drugs

    All my life I have seen the phrase " say no to drugs." With saying that I've always seen drugs as a bad thing. I understand legalizing marijuana for health problems, but legalizing it just to do it for fun is what I don't understand. If I was to smoke a few joints with some friends I would become "high" and mentally impaired for some time. Then if I was to get in the car and take a drive I wouldn't only be putting my life in danger I would be putting the lives of loved ones in danger.

  • No medical use only

    There is no need to legalize marijuana for recreational use other than a certain group of people would like to use it legally. There are no benefits to our society if we legalize it. Medical marijuana should be available for anyone who truly needs it but that is where legalization should end.

  • Marijuana shouldn't be legal

    Marijuana should not be legal since it has been deemed a drug and can be cut and mixed with anything. For one if i smoke a pack a cigarettes and get into a car i can drive absolutely fine and not be impaired but if i smoke a couple joints i will be impaired mentally to drive and now you are putting others at risk and with alcohol its a controlled substance i know what is gonna happen if i have a beer or two i know the affects it will bring and if i smoke some pot i don't know what it was cut with and also it can have different affects every time and with alcohol and cigarettes its controlled and has been around a lot longer than people smoking pot so pot should not be legal.
