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.
