    marijuana..should it be legal?

    Advertisements
    ok so
    we have this debate in our class tommorow, our teacher is going to split us into two groups, for and against and we have no say in which group.
    i need help i know weve done this debate before but i cant for the life of me figure out the new search so i cant find it. i need opinions mostly FOR marijuana being legal. i grew up in a house where smoking ciggs in unacceptable let alone pot (dads a cop and anti anything that has to do with addiction) (please dont judge my parents there families all smoke and they wanted us to grow up thinking it was not ok but anyways)
    i have such a strong opinion and im worried i will be put on the FOR side and i cant figure out an argument other then the use of pain management...
    PLEASE help lets try to keep it clean as well

    Yup. Less dangerous than alcohol or tobacco.
    Shown to be less addictive than caffiene.

    I think the government could make some money by taxing the crap out of it if it were sold like cigarettes.

    I have a few friends who have smoked pot ( I have not) and say that they were way more likely to eat some food and go to sleep than get obnoxious like they do when they drink.

    I also dont believe that pot is a gateway drug, it leads to eating (or so I have been told ) *if a person chooses to do other drugs, it is not b/c of marijuana.

    And maybe if the average joe schmo who liked to smoke pot and could by it in a minimart would be less likely to get involved with less than innocent people who are into worse stuff when he needed to buy it.

    Not saying I am for legalizing it, just trying to make some points for you.

    My thoughts EXACTLY. Also I think putting people in jail for pot is a total waste.

    how is it less dangerous then tobacco...ive always seen statistics such as this

    "In fact, the average joint has been estimated to contain 0.4 grams of pot, a bit less than one-half the weight of a cigarette, making one joint equal to two cigarettes " "Marijuana Health"
    i cant fathom how two is better then one...please dont flame me i just honestly dont know.

    consenting adults in their own home...haha should have informed the dude with his four kids in cistco the other day he walked by and my roomate and I about fell over from the strong stench of pot.

    pot is not as addicting as smoking. There are less chemicals in a blunt

    I am not 100% on this, but I gather that is what it is.
