What would the life be like if you could purchase marijuana anywhere and everywhere? The humannhealth website seems to think “If marijuana were legal short-term cognitive impairment would be active in more people.” (humannhealth.com)This would be an extreme risk to the youth of America by acquiring more access to the drug, it would cause them to have the effects including but not limited to; not being able to accomplish a goal they might have had. There are positive things that can come from this like helping people with seizures, arthritis, cancer, and AIDS. The positive effects would help someone to the point where they would outweigh the bad effects on that person. If marijuana is legalized medical patients are the only ones that need access to this drug because the drug then becomes a help rather than a hazard.
