Legalizing marijuana will increase crime rates. Local demand for it will increase. People who consume drugs become troublesome. It will increase accidents due to motor impairment and will deplete prison space.
Individuals hooked on marijuana are most likely to do terrible in school and have dysfunctions. It is usually consumed to the point of intoxication. It impairs short-term memory, slows reaction time, increases rate of heart attacks, strokes, birth defects, and damages respiratory system and brain. It doesn’t have any known healthful properties.
Marijuana use is a waste of money. Instead of parents buying clothing, shelter, food, and school supplies for their children, they waste their money on useless things such as drugs. When people can be supporting their kids, they buy things for themselves. People without kids shouldn’t buy drugs either because they can use their money for greater benefits.
I believe marijuana shouldn’t be legalized in the U.S. because it can lead to the use of other harmful drugs such as cocaine, heroin, and meth. People who do drugs tend to have lower IQ points. Individuals who use it are most likely to increase crime rates and have bad behavior. When adults are seen using drugs, children tend to think they are safe and harmless for them to use it! Yet proponents of legalizing drugs deny the effects of marijuana. This is my opinion on the dark side of legalizing marijuana in the U.S.
