I feel like the big thing that people are talking about is legalizing marijuana. A lot of people are up in arms that this plant basically will become the gateway drug to harder substances. I really don’t think so. I feel marijuana is just too useful to ignore. Also if marijuana is treated like alcohol, then the younger generation will react accordingly. Marijuana should be legalized, have regulations and laws associated with it. But, medical marijuana should always be accessible in any state, age and location. There are too many benefits when it comes to medical purposes. I suppose that is the point I don’t understand. We allow alcohol to be legal when all it does is cause problems. People die from it and it hinders your mind. Cigarettes are legal and they can cause lung cancer and other health concerns. Marijuana is not legal and there is a ton of benefits in taking it. Now there are chemicals in marijuana that causes problems. The cannabinoids in marijuana is what gets you high. That is the ingredient that alters the mind. The ingredient can be breed out of the plant. You can use the medical plant without getting any of that. The plant can only help if you want. But, cannabinoids also has health purposes too. So even the ingredient people are worried about is quite useful. Cancer, epilepsy and more health cases have shown that different ingredients marijuana is helping them. So why are we restricting this miracle cure? If we need to ban anything ban alcohol and cigarettes since they have no benefit.
