Crime declining would be one of the most infinite answer as to hat would happen if marijuana was legal. Drug cartels would not be able to operate because they couldn’t sell something that is already available in the market already. Its simple economics,in a free market state you create the supply and demand. With the demand of marijuana users being met there would be no point in the cartel even existing. Legalizing the drug would upset few but in particular drug cartels with a control in the market.
While some do not believe the theory that drugs are used for the risk, it is an interesting way to look at the reason people do drugs. People who are pro drugs promote that drugs, such as marijuana, are used for medical use as well as recreational use, because they enjoy the effect drugs have on them. Prohibitionists state that if drugs were legalized they would be only consumed for recreational use or to escape from reality instead of dealing with issues (Marijuana Abuse, 2012). Some prohibitionists do not even believe that drugs help in medical ways. This controversial topic is one of the reasons the drug reform is such a debated movement of today.
Those are our unalienable rights as an American.” Enoch Easter’s opinion was, “Why not legalize marijuana period? If you use it then good for you; if you don’t then that’s your decision. Some people actually might need medical marijuana for medical conditions, but hypocrites say bad things about it and try to make it seem that it’s morally wrong if you use it. If using medical marijuana or recreational marijuana is ok by your moral beliefs, then I believe you should be able to use it. It’s not the
Many believe marijuana is a stress reliever and a way to forget all their problems, but if one would realize the actual effects and the difficulty to be able to “cut back” on smoking/eating it, the drug lobby would not be trying so hard to con voters into believing marijuana is completely safe. To face this problem the organized participation of society is required through actions that put the health of individuals and communities before other interests. Including being worried about the number of marijuana consumers among children and adolescents in the world, and particularly worried about the age decreasing for first timers. More importantly get closer to decision makers and ask them to develop well-balanced national policies for supply reduction and demand reduction by initiating prevention programs, and offering rehabilitation as means too face this social phenomenon society calls the drug
For this particular argument it would have to be “Circular Reasoning”, it’s a fallacy that in which the premises include the claim that the conclusion is true or (directly or indirectly) assume that the conclusion is true. We can assume by the premises that the argument would have to be true, due the subject, marijuana is a universal and cheap drug that can be used by anyone. In fact, there are laws that prevent the use of marijuana, so when the law tells society you can’t smoke marijuana, this only puts out a message of restriction and that doesn’t go well for listening. In conclusion, Blakeslee arriving on the conclusion that severe laws will only put more danger on those who use marijuana than
I still feel as if trying to make a fair tax law for everyone is impossible. To me it would seem that some one would always be ending up getting the short end of the stick. From the company to the government it would not work out. I feel like some taxes could and should be modified to make things better but I do not know if it could ever be fair. I do find it interesting what will the new tax laws will follow with the legalization of marijuana.
People who can legally purchase marijuana should not be allowed to be around anyone under the age of 21 while the are under the influence or have marijuana in their possession. Putting a law like this into affect will either cause a drastic decrease in the amount of teens that smoke marijuana or eliminate the ease of accessibility. Most people, especially those that are addicted to drugs do not want to go through complications when buying or using the drug. Age restrictions on whom they can be around while intoxicated or in possession of drugs will lead to a decreased percentage of teens using marijuana because many of them will lose their
Legalizing marijuana throughout the country would bring less “crime” as well. Tourists who go to the legal states would go back to their own state and could be arrested and even fired from their job for marijuana use. Why allow two states in America go against the federal law and have the other forty-eight stuck in the unethical
My answer is no I think it would just cause more problems than it would solve. I believe marijuana is a good use for medicinal purposes but if it was legalized very few people would be using it medicinally. I believe the majority of people that used marijuana would be using it to achieve a high and in the repeated process would become addicted. I also believe that if marijuana was legal it would become a lot easier for teenagers and young adults to get their hands on marijuana even if your suppose to be 18 to get it there will be the sellers that don’t care about the age group their selling to. There are some teens that will stop at nothing to get their hands on any drugs but if marijuana was legalized it would be just that much easier.
An individual’s desire to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes has led them to a new controversial device known as the electronic cigarette. The users of the E-cig do not know the long-term effects of second hand vapors, nor is it evident if it is a healthier alternative to tobacco products. According to Christensen (2014), “Smoking is still the leading cause of avoidable death in the United States. The devices are not one of the FDA-approved methods to help people quit, but many people are using them this way. A growing number of scientists are studying them to see whether they may be a way to end an epidemic.” The public is in need of this clinical research in an effort to clarify whether the vapors from these electronic devices are harmful to themselves and others.
