I believe marijuana should be legalized for medical reasons, but what
sense does it make to have patients find their own dealers and then
bust them with a felony? That is stupid. I think weed should be legal
for anyone over 21, like alcohol. Alcohol is a legal drug which kills
people. You never hear of someone who is high on marijuana killing
someone else. The jails should be less overcrowded. Cigarettes are
also a drug that is legal, and people die from lung cancer all the
time because of cigarettes. So what is the difference between
cigarettes and marijuana? There is no difference except marijuana
affects the brain. Marijuana shouldn't be allowed in the workplace, or
while driving, because it blurs your vision and also slows your
reflexes. But if you are going to bust their dealers, then why
legalize it? That doesn't make sense.
