In retrospect, disciplinary actions such as fines and imprisonment will decrease marijuana use. However, marijuana users are people that are not a menace to society and are minor criminals. As a result, imprisoning the users could be taken to mean as an excessively waste of federal funds along with over-populating the prison unnecessarily. Government is created to set good examples and educate children that drugs can corrupt anyone under the influence.

Kurt L. Schmoke called for the debate on drug control and strategies. Schmokes’s argument was that for generations the United States has been pursuing policies of prosecution and repression that resulted in little more than overcrowded courts and prisons, increased profits for drug traffickers, and higher rates of addiction. There are two main view points on the changing of drug laws. One is the Prohibition view point which is against drug legalization. Prohibitionist believe that laws that are set in place are enough and that the legalization of drugs would further disrupt family structure and imply drug use to American youth that would lower perceptions of harms and risks, as well as failing to eliminate drug addiction.
Many of us who do not smoke want to legalize it because we see that if it is illegal, it does not support what marijuana can do for the economy and for medical reasons. Marijuana should be legal because it would have a much more positive affect on society, rather than keeping it illegal. The legalization of marijuana would help get the economy. The war against marijuana is doing nothing and is just widening our debt. If we were to legalize and tax it, the government would make tons of money and we could reduce the debt we now have.
Legalizing drugs may even reduce the crime because the drugs will be easier to get. People won’t have to buy the drugs on the street which can reduce the black market, because most of the gangs and cartels will have to either quit selling the drugs or open up a legal business. Another reason legalizing drugs is beneficial is that the prisons are overcrowding with people who owned or sold drugs. If we took everybody out of the prisons that are associated with drugs, our prisons would be less crowded, rather than way over the maximum. This would also save many tax dollars because they won’t be spent on trying to keep people in prisons.
Legalizing marijuana would increase our economy's revenue. During Prohibition alcohol use was still sold and used, but people were doing it illegally. The 21st amendment repealed prohibition and alcohol taxes were increased. The same thing should happen with drugs. Marijuana should be taxed heavily to increase our revenue.
Making the use of marijuana legal everywhere will more than likely help stop the chaos between the smokers and nonsmokers and reduce the outrageously high total of 858, 408 who are arrested annually for marijuana possession and use. So why exactly should marijuana be legal? Well, there are many reasons both opinions and facts, but why does it need to be legal? According to many of my sources, marijuana has been found to be less dangerous than both alcohol and tobacco products. “Marijuana is safer than many over the counter drugs.” (Young, Francis L. 2) Judge Francis L. Young, from the DEA, declared that marijuana is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man.
Thus reducing crime that was once committed to support illegal drug habits. Another drug that has played a large role in American society is Nicotine. For hundreds of years, cigarettes have been a very popular and legal drug within the United States. Only through research and education has the popularity and the use of cigarettes declined within the past decade. Physically, the actual consequences of using illegal Narcotics are much less than those of commonly used drugs like alcohol or cigarettes.
