LEGALIZE MARIJUANA?
LEGALIZE MARIJUANA?
Stanimir G Stoev
Three states currently allow the legal possession of marijuana for recreational use (Alaska, Colorado and Washington); Oregon will allow it in 2016 and Washington, D.C. just approved restricted recreational marijuana possession in February 2015. Conservatives are generally not happy that the federal government is not enforcing its laws against marijuana possession and use, while liberals claim that the drug is not harmful and people should be able to use it if they want to. Proponents of legalization argue that people are going to use it no matter what so the government might as well regulate it and get tax revenue. Opponents say that legalizing it creates more consumers, makes it more readily accessible to children, and might teach that other drugs are not harmful. Legalization could also take it out of the hands of drug dealers which motivates them to distribute other, more harmful drugs.
