I find it ironic that some of the same people that want to ban cigarettes are the same people that continue to push for marijuana legalization. There is absolutely no good that can come from making marijuana legal. Already there are stories coming out of Colorado about the increased problems it’s causing. Hollywood as with most other issues make it seem as if it’s totally safe to use, which it is not. Study after study shows that there is no positive health benefit to using the substance. In Colorado teens use has increased and so has marijuana related DUI’s. This trend will continue as it becomes legal in other states. Some would argue that people should have the right to choose what they do in their life with their body, but this isn’t a liberal versus conservative versus libertarianism issue. This is a common sense issue and common sense would tell you that you must be high if you believe making marijuana legal would be beneficial to our society.
