Default Legalization of Marijuana

I hope this doesn't get locked because it's a completely serious topic. Although this will include a discussion about an illegal substance (in certain places), it's simply getting into a bigger idea: should this illegal substance (marijuana) be legalized?

If so, why?

If you don't advocate the legalization of marijuana, why?

Don't know enough about it to be honest, but I'd be okay with it being legal.

Never met a smart person who smokes weed though, just sayin'.

Yes, so that when you are going to buy it you won't buy it from someone who also sells hard drugs like cocaine.

And no, because more people will use it. (Half my class on school smokes it)

You just said half your class at school smokes it...and it's illegal, amirite?

Most people only do it because it's the cool thing to do, like cigarettes used to be. If it's legal, it's not as cool.

I live in the Netherlands, it isn't fully legal here, but you are allowed to buy it in certain stores and you can have some of it with you, and you are allowed to smoke it.

But you aren't allowed to farm weed for example.

It shouldn't be legal, because drugs make you stupid

We don't need more stupid people

yes

it's awesome
The intoxicating effects of marijuana include relaxation, sleepiness, and mild euphoria (getting high).
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/e...cle/000952.htm

keeping it illegal is not stopping anyone who wants to use it from using it


prohibition is expensive (and pointless)

http://norml.org/marijuana

750k people arrested per year for something consistently proven to be less harmful than alcohol and tobacco. no one has ever died on marijuana without another drug in their system.


http://www.oregon.gov/pharmacy/Impor...17FDAdrugs.pdf

since it is illegal it is unregulated meaning a drug dealer can add in harmful substances

No.

1 - Weed smokers are wastemen, if people go to the effort of obtaining it then that's their choice but making it publicly available is going to result in a lot of people failing to reach their potential in life.

2 - Legalisation will force the price up.

3 - It can be a gateway drug. The internets will not agree with this but I have experience with drug taking crowds and weed smokers are more likely to move onto cocaine etc than drinkers
