Marijuana is always a much talked about subject, and ever since the United States government had gotten interested in the possibility of legalizing it in their country the discussion on this drug has increased by a factor onto itself!
Why was Marijuana illegalized in the first place?
Protection of Corporate Profits
Ignorant, Incompetent, and/or Corrupt Legislators
Personal Career Advancement and Greed
Many people think Marijuana was illegalized simply because of medical studies proving its an unhealthy drug which should be outlawed, or even the fact that its just something that most governments around the world (except for the Netherlands – go Amsterdam!) have wanted to heavily control. There is no doubt in some uses of the drug it is definitely bad for your health, primarily if you smoke it as lung damage can be seen similarly to a cigarette smoker, but usually a lot worse.
Is Marijuana a harmful drug? Perhaps, but cannabis has been proven to provide many medical benefits to patients of experiencing unexplained nausea and vomiting and some with anorexia, and weight loss.
What do you think? The US are currently in debate on this one wether or not to legalize it. What would happen if it does become legal? What are the social implications of legalizing it? Would it help the world’s economy (wishful thinking), would it really be that bad? I don’t know.
