Should cannabis be legalized?
Yes. If cannabis were legal, a whole revolution in society would
come through. We can start buy saying that cannabis is a completely
non toxic substance, minus the inhalation of smoke (no matter how
you cut it, your lungs do not enjoy sucking smoke). In fact, no one
has ever died, and has had cannabis as the direct source alone. Now
if one were to drive, operate heavy machinery, etc, while
intoxicated is a risk made by the user, not the substance. Since it
is blended in with other illegal narcotics in the underground drug
trade, the 'gateway theory' comes to play when a cannabis user is
tricked into buying a different product for profit of the dealer.
now if legal, dealers would lose money. How? Well if legal and
taxed like alcohol, it is specified, leaving the 'gateway theory'
debunked as they would only sell cannabis in there stores. As well,
it would require ID, ergo leaving it out of the hands of children(
because dealers could care less if a four year old wants cronic, as
long as he has $70 and nice clothes, he'll deal.). If treated like
alcohol, it would reqire new jobs to be created for production and
transportation, and evening out the statistics of distribution. Not
to mention the medicinal benefits (of whitch are being ironed out
in canada as we speak) that would be included. The whole industry
is a multi billion dollar industry,and its in criminal hands. it
could be as easy as legalization and that would show that cannabis
is safe,does not cause harm,and would have benefits on thee whole
nation,as well as spreading new pop culture and stimulating the
media, and society in general.
