poll:should marijuana be legal?
the reasons why marijuana is illegal is because:
1. It is perceived as addictive.
2. It has “no accepted medical use.”
3. It has been historically linked with narcotics, such as heroin.
4. It is associated with unfashionable lifestyles.
5. It was once associated with oppressed ethnic groups.
6. Inertia is a powerful force in public policy.
7. Advocates for marijuana legalization rarely present an appealing case.
ok for #1
alcohol is legal, yet it is addictive and has high potential abuse.
alcohol has same reason
its saying that its the “getaway drug”
i see people drink to “getaway”
hippies and losers smoked it. saying that the normal man wouldnt. well ummm, actually hippies and losers drunk, did they not?
that african americans used it. so racism? they drink also. make beer illegal
no idea lol, but i bet alcohol has same thing
cause they are high when they are trying to appeal a case lol
so yeah should marijuana be legal? alcohol has same effect.
alcohol kills your liver. it makes you unaware of the actions you are making. it makes you do wrong things, yet its still legal
i will never understand why. o well. anyways amsterdam rules cause they let you smoke lol
for cancer and other medical things-
Marijuana seems to yield considerable medical benefits for many Americans with ailments ranging from glaucoma to cancer, but these benefits have not been accepted well enough, on a national level. Medical use of marijuana remains a serious national controversy.
In order to fight the argument that marijuana has no medical use, legalization advocates need to highlight the effects it has had on the lives of people who have used the drug for medical reasons.
i have smoked it for about 8 months straight. i mean like a joint aday, and i am in no way addicted. i have not touched it for about 3 years and i am not dieing for one.
i have not tried drinking but have seen my friends drunk, and i would actually prefer them to smoke then drink.
also, when i have a headache or just in pain, i smoke so i do not feel the pain. it actually works, and it wares off about the same time the pain is gone.
whether a tooth ache, headache, or just plain stomach ache, marijuana helps it all
