    Weed legalization

    Weed was officially legalized here in Washington for people ages 21 and up. During history my teacher had asked the class whether they thought it was a good idea to legalize marijuana I had an answer for all of them

    "marijuana kills brain cells and causes damage to the body"
    -Alcohol and cigarettes are both legal and they both cause more damage to the human body as well has kill more brain cells than marijuana.

    "marijuana can cause people to do stupid things like drive off cliffs and whatnot"
    -The police are going to crack down on people for driving under the influence of marijuana. And even though marijuana is a gateway drug. It wont cause you to make irrational judgments as extreme as jumping off a cliff...

    Do you think marijuana should be legal. Why or why not.

    I guess if people really did want to smoke pot, it's their wish so they should be able to do so. But I personally don't think they should. It would ruin a person's life even more than drinking or smoking because it makes you go a bit off the cliff side (HA), and you'd stink even more than a smoker and a drinker put together. That was all over the place but whatever, you get what I mean.

    I guess it depends on how you treat the situation. Smoke it once or twice a week. And keep it below the radar. Shower regularly (personal hygiene bullshit) just keep it to a minimum and don't make it a habit. Cause it will then escalate into an addiction. But thats really the only thing that could ruin you. an addiction.

    Thats honestly the only thing I could think of that would have an extremely devastating effect on your life. Developing an addiction to it.

    marijuana is not addictive. people who develop a dependency on it are just the same kind of people who develop a dependency to coffee.

    and i don't feel that it should be necessary for me to point out all the things that are wrong with this sentence: "It would ruin a person's life even more than drinking or smoking because it makes you go a bit off the cliff side (HA), and you'd stink even more than a smoker and a drinker put together"

    Yeah I didn't phrase that properly lol. Plus I was sleepy at the time. Anyway, why would you say marijuana isn't addictive? Dependency on something like that is being addicted. That's what it means doesn't it? Or are you just messing around?

    no. the drug is not chemically addictive. you cannot become physically addicted to marijuana.

    weak willed people become mentally dependent to the effects of it. and again, i will compare this to caffeine. ever heard someone tell you that they can't function until they have their coffee? it's the same shit. "i can't relax until i smoke some weed"

    And governments are doing everything practical to reduce consumption of both.

    I don't really know enough about marijuana to have a stance either way on this issue (leaning towards pro-legalisation just for the tax revenue), but I don't think this is a good argument.
