Weed Should Be Legal And Here's Why

"Weed is highly dangerous"-sarcasm.

Weed Should Be Legal And Here's Why

I think marijuana should be legalized everywhere in the United States. We are called the United States, yet weed is only legal in some of the states in America… It should be legal everywhere, in ALL states.

As far as a gateway drug, I think it depends on the person for marijuana. Especially if the marijuana they have been purchasing is laced with bad stuff... that is when someone buys their weed off the streets. That's another reason right there why marijuana should be legal everywhere. If there were dispensaries in every state no one would have to worry about buying it from someone and not trusting them. Dispensaries are professional, legal offices that usually look like doctors' offices.

Let's be honest, alcohol is so much worse than marijuana. Don't get how marijuana isn't legal everywhere for people 21 and over but alcohol is. So many people have died of alcohol. No one has died of marijuana and no one can. You cannot overdose on marijuana. But you can have alcohol poisoning and die. In my opinion, alcohol is more of a gateway drug than marijuana by far. How many times have you heard of stories where someone drank a lot and then they ended up doing Coke, meth, heroin, etc. Marijuana should be recreationally legalized everywhere in my opinion.

The benefits outweigh the detriments. The country and its people need to be educated on this topic far more than they are now. When someone says, "weed is dangerous," I think they sound ridiculous and immature. South Carolina's attitude about marijuana is horrendous- the governor himself said it is the most dangerous drug.... *face palm*. We as the state of SC are way behind, and we need to get on board with the legalization of marijuana. People are going to jail for possession of a couple grams of weed while meth addicts are roaming the streets. Come on y'all. Get a grip.
