The legalization of marijuana
is a very debatable subject, some people think it is bad and should be illegal, and some people think it is good in some ways if used properly. It should be legal because it has few negative effects, it serves other purposes than getting people stoned, and it is better than other drugs.
Many advocates say ? Marijuana
is a common drug used by many people.?(Sandra) A lot of people think marijuana
has numerous amounts of negative effects on the body. Marijuana
helps the body in many different ways. It relaxes and relives stress from many people. It has been proven that marijuana
does not kill brain cells, like most people seem to think it does. Marijuana
also helps the creativity of people. It gives people new and creative ideas. The only negative effect it has on the body is that it speeds up your metabolism which makes you hungry and it causes people to eat a lot of food, which could be bad for
people on a diet or that are overweight and should not be eating a lot. Many advocates say, ?some of the greatest books and movies were wrote by people that were on marijuana
while they thought of all their ideas.?(William Dudley) ?The U.S. Army released a study about the effects of marijuana
. The report concluded that the drug was neither habit for
ming or dangerous; La Guardia?s report concluded that marijuana
was not a gateway drug and that its potential, social, medical
, and psychological dangers had been vastly over estimated.?(William J.) So if marijuana
does not have many bad effects, and it is not a gateway drug, or it is not dangerous, then why is it prohibited?
