I Think Marijuana Should Be Legalized

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 12,782 People

    Of course it should be legal!

    It has many medicinal uses and for many (me included) it's recreational use is way safer than alcohol.

    Just Do It.

    In my opinion , weed just isn't that big of a deal . I do not understand why it is illegal . It's not like its a dangerous drug , I've never seen someone get high and say " hey let's go massacre a bunch of people" or " lets eat someone face" . Have you ever heard of someone...

    Does Weed Make You Horny?

    I don't know if you've ever seen the 1950-60s movie called "Reefer Fever", but it's hilarious. The theme behind it is all of the terrible things that people will do if they smoke grass... like turning into murderers, rapists, robbers, sex addicts, and generally horrible people...

    There are pros and cons to the legalization of

    I think that alcohol is addicting,

    can consume your life quite easily, can make you hung over, throw up, or get alcohol poisoning. I definitely don't condone alcohol, but many of my friends have gotten alcohol poisoning and many of their parents are alcoholics. and as for hard drugs, we all know the dangers of...

    Without pot I could never get through any

    It Doesn'T Even Make Sense...

    Liquor is legal. It can completely alter your personality. Weed is illegal. It makes you sleepy, hungry and happy. I like weed better. Nuff said. Legalize.

    But I Don't Smoke.

    It's just something that I feel is eating up resources without reason. I like the idea of taxing it a bit - cover the medical fee end if it raises risk and fund the police to make sure people aren't driving under the influence. That sort of thing. (I'm Canadian in case you were...

    I believe it should be legalized.

    If cigarettes and alcohol can kill you and they're legal then a plant that makes you happy and has never killed anyone should also be legal. Ignorant people are the ones against it, and in my opinion they should just stay away from things like this.

    I really try to keep this argument simple.

    We can go into all the details regarding marijuana's positive and negative effects, but I say that none of that matters when it comes to law. According to my philosophy, a crime is not committed until the life, liberty, or property of another individual is infringed upon...

    I do not agree with legalizing marijuana!

    If you can drive drunk, what happens when you drive high on marijuana? I believe opinions will change when someone stoned out on pot gets behind the wheel of scar and kills a bunch of people,

    The scariest thing about marijuana is what a

    neophyte culture America is. Weed alone is not dangerous, but access to weed without discipline, priorities, and goals leads to a wasteful life.

    that marijuana is not federally legal. Yes people will abuse it, but I am tired of hearing that excuse. I am tired of hearing it because there are people who will use it responsibly like alcohol and medication now.

    It's coming in strong in the US.

    If Colorado can get it legalised then sure others will follow. Especially when the states realise how much money can be made from it. Let's hope the UK follows suit. It's 4:20 somewhere ;-)
