If we make marijuana legal, then what's stopping us from making similar drugs legal?
Made legal would make it more available to children. Think about the children!
Think about the children affected by alcohol, cigarettes, fast food, unrestricted television.
I would argue that marijuana should be legal before any of those things.
In fact, most of the problems associated with weed are due to the prohibition of weed, not the use.
When my stomache hurts, I smoke some weed and it fixes it!
When I have a headache, instead of taking aspirin, I smoke a little bit of weed and drink a little coffee, and it fixes it!
When I'm simply bored on the weekend, without any work to do, I smoke some weed and it fixes my boredom!
I actually think that all substances should be legal. Paint isn't illegal, but you can get high from it. Cleaning products should be illegal by the same rationale that weed is illegal.
Responsibility lies with the individual. Education about responsibility lies with parents. I think the government should not be involved to the extent that it is right now.
California will have the legalization of weed for adults 21 and over, just like acohol, on the ballot in November for the first time since the 70's!
I hope it gets enough votes to pass, it would be such an improvement.
