  • Should we illegalize social media because some people decide to be idiots with it?

  • There are many reason for pot to be illegal. Giving one reason by itself is not enough. But if you combined all of the reasons, you find that it should be illegal.

  • Its here on this planet to be used not abused by a minority . Everyone in the USA should have the right to smoke the stuff once they reach a mature age . not 18 and not 21 id actually like to see a national drug policy that allows people 30 and over to use any illegal drug. With respect to medicinal use of an illegal substance a doctors prescription would be just fine . Peace

  • For essentially everything, whether it is social media, or the internet, or marijuana possession, there will always be a small group of people who abuse the usage. Therefore, is it reasonable to ban everything because of that small percentage? Of course not. If a medical drug has very rare side effects, should it be banned from its usage? No.

  • I'm actually very anti-drug and would never do drugs unless it was medical, but I have no problem with them being legal and they at least need to be decriminalized.

TBR: It implies that the main reason pot is made illegal is because "a small percentage are reckless".

Well it is true, a small percentage abuse pot and then we decide to criminalize it over those few idiots.

"a small percentage abuse pot and then we decide to criminalize it over those few idiots." Equally though you are only criminalizing it for a few idiots more. Most people don't smoke it. That makes the few idiots a much larger percentage within the whole of the idiots using it.

I mean, knowing it damages and then using it recreationally at all can be construed as reckless. But you should have the right to be reckless, so idk.
