The reasons that marijuana should be legal

Before you dismiss me as some pothead just take a second to read what I’m writing. I do not use marijuana or any other illegal drug. Budweiser and Marlboro’s work just fine for me! The line of work I am in requires random drug testing, and I like money more than I like getting a buzz.

The fact that our government is spending billions upon billions of dollars to chase after people who like to smoke a little dope before they hit up the taco bell drive through is ridiculous. If a grown adult chooses to smoke their braincells away why shouldn’t they be permitted to do so? It’s their brain and their problem. Alcohol also destroys brain cells. It also destroys marriages, friendships and alot of people’s lives in general but they can have commercials on TV!

You may be yelling at your computer screen by now “WHAT ABOUT OUR KIDS DIPSHIT!!” “MARIJUANA IS A GATEWAY DRUG!!!!” To that I would say, You’re right. It is a gateway drug. 

Do you know why so many teenagers use marijuana? Because it’s easier for them to get a bag of weed than it is a wine cooler! If you go to any high school, public or private I guarantee 90% of the kids know who to go see if they want to buy some pot. While maybe 20% of the kids may have a connection to get alcohol. These stats are simply based on my memories from about 10 years ago when I was in high school. And I went to school in a good neighborhood also.

If you legalize marijuana and sell it at 7-11 who of legal age, be it 18 or 21 is going to buy it from the dealer on the corner? No one! The corner dealer makes a high % of profits on weed, and benefits from marijuana being a gateway to other things. But if marijuana is sold in the store, HE GOES OUT OF BUSINESS! He’ll have to get a real job. That guy on the corner won’t be able to survive without selling marijuana, he’ll be done for.

The government needs to quit wasting our tax money and reevaluate the laws on the books.
