I know many people that have smoked cigarettes or marijuana for many years and who have failed to quit. They believe it helps them to relax, calm down, and release stress. Thus, It becomes a very strong addiction for many people and for young adults it can create stress and violence as well as mental illnesses. There have been many researches done to see if one is more damaging to the health than the other. Even though, marijuana is used for some medical purposes there is still need for restraint and self-control when marijuana use is considered.
If this is true than cigarettes would be the number one gateway drug because many more people smoke cigarettes than marijuana. So why are people not so readily to make cigarettes illegal? People are more unwilling to ban cigarettes because it is more socially acceptable than the use of marijuana. Many people often believe that marijuana affects the user’s decision making process by slowing down the neurons in their brain. However The Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology has recently published “experienced marijuana users perform tasks as accurately after having smoked cannabis as they do sober, according to clinical trial data.” This disrupts the argument that smokers will inevitably go down a hard road filled with the use of harder drugs.
The Menacing Effects of Marijuana The intake of marijuana can have several different effects. The user may experience a feeling of euphoria, increased laughter or happiness, as well as a relaxed passive mood. The user may experience difficulties with short-term memory, attention span may be decreased, and senses may be distracted. Many users also report losing track of time, experiencing paranoia and anxiety, and having hallucinations. Their eyes may become bloodshot because of the dilation of blood vessels in the eye whites.
Marijuana has been the center of debate for several years now. There are many opinions on the subject, some believe that marijuana will be a “save all” that can help with medical advances, is less harmful than alcohol along with the taxability, so they push extremely hard for it to be legal. Others believe it will cause the world to collapse starting with it being addicting and moving to the detrition of our mental health, and want to do all they can to keep it illegal. Even though some believe it is bad for your mental health and can be very addictive, marijuana should be legal because it has positive medicinal and recreational uses and is taxable and safer than alcohol. Some believe marijuana is bad for your mental health and can be addictive.
There is a wide variety of marijuana, but they are all based off of two marijuana plants, Indica and Sativa. Marijuana is very popular in America, and all over the world. Marijuana affects the body, it can be used as medicine, and marijuana can be addictive. Marijuana can simply increase the user’s happiness, but it can also mess with the brain in some ways. Marijuana is a hullicinogen which is a substance that deceives how the mind perceives the world.
Another reason why there is not much information on legalizing marijuana is because test have been done already. Most individuals believe that legalization of marijuana will make it cheaper and easily accessible. The laws have been argued to reduce the perception of the harmfulness or toxicity of marijuana thus increasing its use. On the basis of such presumptions, legalization of marijuana is expected to increase nonmedical use of marijuana. However, labeling marijuana as a medication for the terminally or severely illness may potentially reduce its use for recreation purposes.
Marijuana is one of the cheapest yet most effective drugs that can be used. Marijuana should be pursued since it is a cheap and effective way to treat illness. The legalization of marijuana can also open up a tremendous amount of jobs. Marijuana has many benefits if it should be legalized, it is only the bad reputation that it has built up over time that makes people hesitate from legalizing it. Marijuana has several healing effects that people hesitate to accept due to it’s bad reputation.
According to adai.us.edu, “If you use marijuana daily, there is a 50/50 chance that you will become addicted”. Cannabis Dependence is a psychological disorder in which people rely on weed to just feel normal, which is not healthy. This disorder will only increase over time if marijuana is legalized. Also if legalized people will build up a tolerance to pot and to reach their desired high they will have to use it more and more. Marijuana is classified as a gateway drug and if legalized it will lead people to use more hardcore drugs like heroin or methamphetamine, which in turn they will want legalized.
Although the effect it has as an ingredient isn’t as strong as it would be if you smoked it. It all depends on how long the person smoking it holds in it their lungs. The more you hold it in the more the drug gets into your bloodstream. Marijuana is not just a drug to be used as to get “high” with. It is a drug that needs to become legal so it can help heal people with certain diseases and it can be useful for industrial reasons as well.
The government can take over this market and regulate it to make billions of dollars and decrease the amount of underage smoking at the same time. Many people look at marijuana as a bad thing, but alcohol and tobacco is no better and is actually worse. One could bet that, in a few years, all states will have a market for marijuana and many other countries, if not all, will too.
