There are so many regular people that smoke pot in America. Smoking pot clearly has far less dangerous effects on other people and on us than legal drugs like alcohol. The prohibition of pot has failed to reduce the production and use of marijuana.
The government has tried to use criminal penalties to prevent marijuana use for over 75 years but that obviously has not helpe. Statistics show marijuana is now used by over 25 million people annually and cannabis is currently the largest cash crop in the United States even though marijuana is grown all over the planet. Marijuana is a lot safer than alcohol and it is an established scientific fact that marijuana is not toxic to humans like alcohol or cigarette are. Marijuana overdoses are almost impossible. Also a very important thing is that Marijuana is not nearly as addictive as alcohol or tobacco. And for these reasons i think that it is unfair to treat marijuana users more harshly under the law than the users of alcohol or tobacco. Smoking tobacco is worse than smoking marijuana and alcohol intoxicates our bodies. Marijuana does not have any affects in our bodies like alcohol and tobacco do so that is why it should not be illegal when far more harming products are available to us everywhere.
