Okay I am serious about this question on cannabis, I would like to know all the reasons why Cannabis is bad for you and shouldn't be legalized and also why it is good preferably I would like to see a debate on this and see which one prevails to the winner ( I am not against it though I want to become more enlightened to ways to prove it to other's when they be downright pigs quoting failed tests from the 70s and such, So please debate on this matter whether it is good and made illegal cause it would put alot of things of of business or it is bad and should be still illegal.

I don't know how bad cannabis really is for the consumer, only that inhaling smoke is never exactly healthy and it apparently can potentially mess up your long-term memory.

I don't rightly care, though. In my eyes, everyone's free to do as he likes with that kind of thing. Putting people behind bars for possession of the wrong kind of vegetation is ridiculous.

It's not worse for you than alcohol, or tobacco, the main reason it's not legal now is because legalizing would mean the government admitting it was wrong to ban it in the first place, which would put into question all of their decisions. You've seen how arguments go down when people are already prejudiced toward one side "If they were wrong about weed, what else are they wrong about?" However, I'm all for legalizing it now that the idea's been thrown around for several years. Of course, I'd like a restriction on it, like 18+ or something, (since it affects minors a little more than adults) but marijuana honestly is not that bad for you. The biggest reason I stay away from it is that I'm an average athlete, I need all the time and motivation I can get to keep up with school and my sport. I feel like I'm rambling, but I have quite a lot to say on the matter.

I figure that weed should first be decriminalized then legalized, in order to relieve the prison system of about 40-60% of their population. Once the people who are in jail for marijuana use are repatriated, and there is no problem, then the legalization should take affect. And after that, we can tax the shit out of marijuana just like we do Tobacco. Keep in mind that this is all my opinion.

We would have to factor in the loss of taxes due to people growing their own.

But all together, the gross gain from taxing them would be better than nothing at all.

True. Economically speaking, it would be good to reduce spending on prisons as well as introducing new taxes. Undermining profits for criminal organizations through the legalization of marijuana is also another big reason. But where is the opposing opinion?

Californian here. I'm all for legalizing, but I think the main argument against it is that it's a gateway drug to others like cocaine, meth, etc. But IMO weed is no worse than tobacco or alcohol

I know Thank you I just wanted to see if at lease someone could give a proper valid argument about or at least give a pro cannabis argument against those who blurt out all this crap kinda like the person turning around and saying it makes you stupid and burns your brain out along with etc etc I just wanted to see who could at least give me a nice way of telling them that what they are saying as what you said is shit but not just to go as little as to say its shit but to more plant logical knowledge into which they cannot retaliate from you know what i mean like. Its like I know it i just want a proper way to convey it when in one of these discussions cause I'd be just as bad as them if I myself didn't have factual stuff to place with my points, Thank you for your reply
