Maybe he should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for legalizing marijuana because he probably helped so many sick people who needed it for their health issues and if I might add all the world leaders should do the same because there are so many cancer patients out there who need it.
José Mujica is a great leader. Not only has legalized marijuana in his country, which will provide a new industry for the country, he also donates about 90% of income, because "he doesn't need it." I think this man is very deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize because he represents what humans should be like, but often are not.
No, Uruguay's president should not be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for legalizing marijuana, because he did not do anything to further peace. Legalizing a drug only promotes more drug violence among producers and distributors, because demand for the drug will increase. In this way, Uruguay's president has not done something to promote peace, he's done something to promote violence.
To give the peace prize to someone who legalized marijuana in their country is a joke. If they have done a lot of other stuff to get them nominated that is okay, but just for marijuana it is wrong. There are other countries who already have it legalized so it is not groundbreaking and it does not change anything long term. Not peace prize worthy.
There is no way this can be a serious question. Legalizing Marijuana does not count as Peace Prize worthy and never will count. I don't have a problem with people smoking pot, but really that's like saying banning Red Bull is worthy of a Nobel Prize in Medicine as excess caffeine is not good for you. Please tell me this is a joke.
No. Uruguay's president should not be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for legalizing marijuana. Making a puff on the peace pipe isn't exactly all that groundbreaking these days, it's more of an acknowledgment that the global war on drugs is a dismal failure. Their president is a pretty nice guy, though, and worth commending for other things he's done. Just not for this.
