Fellow Californians…yes, I’m from California. I’ve been hearing more and more individuals speaking about the entire “Marijuana helps you to save our economy”, and frankly, I really could not DISAGREE MORE! Call it opinion, but I call it fact. Marijuana is not going to save lots of our economy. We’re in a recession, face it. It looks like some people out there are attempting to make use of this economy to produce something that is outright ridiculous seem reasonable.If you watch the headlines, or have any kind of social life, you’re aware of all negatives which can be carried alongside drugs, especially marijuana.
Furthermore, all the problems are going on in California. Making the drug legal cause all hell to break loose. Recently, I was watching a video of violence at the border of California and Mexico. Could you you know what the violence was over? Marijuana. I don’t mean to sound prejudice, but if marijuana is manufactured legal, the amount of crime at the border will probably sky rocket. Is it well worth it? Making this drug legal so our economy can improve somewhat? Heck, we are not really sure if the master plan would work! Our economy is bad enough, and the last thing we need is a drug war going on in our country, or state for that matter. California marijuana The main reason I say country is that if California does it, other states are sure to follow.
Marijuana activists claim that there has been ZERO deaths from marijuana, and they then compare it to the many deaths caused from alcohol. Sure, this can be true. Marijuana has not caused any direct deaths, meaning no one has actually died because of health problem from marijuana. Nonetheless, marijuana leads people to complete items that they’d never do when they were in their right state of mind. Marijuana DOES cause deaths.
So for each of you all Californians who think this idea is a good one, please sit back and deeply reconsider what you’re saying. The economy is horrible, and let’s not ensure it is worse. Obama is in now, and we could count on him to fix things. I’m sure he too would believe that the marijuana proposal is a horrible one, and provides just negatives to their state of California. Just my two cents though! Feel free to state everything you think, as I’m sure there are numerous individuals who are on the opposite side of the spectrum as me.
