Drug enforcement in these states is extremely vigilant, and penalties for illegal possession of marijuana are strict. However, it is possible that this strict policing of possessors of marijuana are making prescriptions more acceptable in the eyes of the law. Movements to legalize marijuana for general use may be less effective in the current conservative cultural atmosphere than efforts to restrict illegal marijuana trade combined with increased interest in the medical benefits of marijuana use. Studies that reveal these benefits are plentiful, and readily available to the medical and scientific community. Pharmaceutics researchers should take marijuana more seriously as a source of new treatments, especially in the field of AIDS research, where promising treatments are few and far between.
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.

Any drug one uses has a high potential of becoming addict status. Its how one decides to use the drug that dictates if he or she will become an addict. If one were to observe the trends of drugs he or she would see that the effects drugs have vary. According to GetGoing (2011) marijuana is a highly addictive drug but with few ill effects.

Sure, using pharmaceutical drugs are safe when they are being used by the doctor’s prescription. However, when these drugs are being crushed and snorted, or being cooked down to a liquid form to be intravenously used or taken orally in very high doses these pharmaceutical drugs can be very fatal.

The death penalty is an inhumane way to get rid of people that have committed serious crimes but that doesn’t mean that they have the right to do that. Some people say that the death penalty is much cheaper than keeping criminals in prison. Does this leave u perplexed? Well it shouldn’t because it costs a lot of money to create those lethal injections and electric chairs and other tools used to give the death penalty.
