The Case for the Legalization of Marijuana

 

The priorities and methods of this great nation have seem to run askew. We elect legislators to make more laws.

How many do we need? If this great experiment in democracy continues on it’s present path, it is conceivable that by 2050, it will be unlawful to exit your home after 6pm without a government, “Seeking entertainment pass”, or a “Work pass”. Jails and camps will abound.

Hell, if we wanted this, we should have just let Hitler, have it all in 1939. We could all enjoy , “security” as a satellite of greater Germania.

It really is true, that those who sacrifice liberty for security, DESERVE NEITHER!
The Marijuana issue, is just a microcosm, indicative of a greater problem. Marijuana has been around a long long time.

it is the most benign, of all the currently illegal drugs. Perhaps even less harmful, than some legal ones. (ie) Tobacco,alcohol and countless others, available by prescription. So why all the fuss? How many of you reading this, know someone who tried it?, arrested for having it?

Maybe you even tried it. If your a Doctor or lawyer or perhaps another professional, would you have a problem, having that on your record? Maybe, maybe not?

The point is, that it’s a needless prosecution. Most people that have tried it, grow out of it. They grow up.

Then theirs the group who for medical reasons, find it truly beneficial. You know, like increasing appetite after “chemo”. Maybe you just like to relax and smoke a joint while listening to, The Beatles White album or perhaps some Beethoven. The hypocritical prosecutors have tried it. ( college is a wonderful time)
Presidents now admit it. Oh, the hypocrisy that runs rampant.

How many times have you read in the paper, “He smoked Marijuana and then killed his family”? or “He smoked marijuana and then beat his wife”? No, these are most likely alcohol fueled incidents. Marijuana’s primary properties are a preponderance to docility, introspection and thought.

You would think the government would prefer these qualities in the general populace. So why is it policy, to outlaw and jail people? If not to
protect us from ourselves, then what is it? As usual, the common denominator is money. Money and control. It’s certainly less harmful than the legal alcohol.

If the criminal justice system, could not prosecute Marijuana possession, and sales, it would be a blow to the solar plexus, because it indeed, is the gateway to the criminal justice system. A system that once its hooks are in, are extremely difficult to remove. Through probation, comesprobation violation. Look at the statistics. What gets you in jail? A missed curfew, laid off?, a missed appt?.

It doesn’t matter, few people on probation,make it through unhindered. This is especially true of our adolescents. Why do we want to make criminals out of our youth, that for the most part, are just in reality, enjoying, the folly of youth. A passing phase.

Marijuana needs to be taxed and sold in much the same manner alcohol is. Doing so (a) Would take money out of the hands of the criminal justice system (b) take money out of the hands of some truly bad people that use marijuana as a gateway to real problems, (c) the revenue generated by taxing this, is to say the least, astronomical. This is a win -win situation.

The end result? An America that deals in reality.

Weed legalization in Canada

The minimum age for taking this bill is set as 18 but however just with the alcohol, territories and the individual provinces have set the higher age for taking this bill. The Canadian psychiatric and the Canadian medical associations have together recommended that the legal age for taking this bill will be 21 or above because the use of the bill by legal age people will not exhibit any harm and when it is used by the lower age people it cause the harm in the development of brain. The people are strictly recommended to use only 30 grams of the dried marijuana for getting the better results and the over dose will be resulting in the serious harm to their body health. This bill also permits the people to cultivate on their own weed and there is a limit on the residence.

Much like the sale of the liquor it will be up to the each jurisdiction to figure out how to sell the stuff where some of the provinces may choose to sell the weed only through the government owned businesses while the others may be embracing the private sellers. It is very unclear that at the instant how the bill will have an effect on the plenty of the illegal medical stores that have increased around Canada in the anticipation of the weed legalization. The government also wish to grant the police more freedom to do the on road call girls investigation for alcohol and many other drugs usage in which the bill also prohibits marketing the youth and depending on the regulations the weed could become a mandated one for the human use. The use of the weed provides many benefits in the medical field and when it is over dose it will not make any harm to the health of the human body.
