Fellow Californians…yes, I’m from California. I’ve been hearing more and more individuals speaing frankly about the whole “Marijuana will save our economy”, and frankly, I really could not DISAGREE MORE! Call it opinion, but I call it fact. Marijuana isn’t going to save our economy. We’re in a recession, face it. It seems like some individuals on the market are trying to utilize this economy to make something that’s outright ridiculous seem reasonable.If you watch the news headlines, or have any type of social life, you are aware of all negatives which are carried alongside drugs, especially marijuana.
Furthermore, all the problems are getting 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. Would you guess what the violence was over? Marijuana. I don’t mean to sound prejudice, but when marijuana is created legal, the amount of crime at the border will probably sky rocket. Infused Cannabis Is it worthy of it? Causeing the drug legal so our economy can improve a little? Heck, we’re not sure if the program works! Our economy is bad enough, and the last thing we need is just a drug war going on within our country, or state for that matter. The reason I say country is when California does it, other states are sure to follow.
Marijuana activists declare that there were ZERO deaths from marijuana, and they then compare it to the many deaths caused from alcohol. Sure, this can be true. Marijuana hasn’t caused any direct deaths, meaning no one has actually died due to a health problem from marijuana. Nonetheless, marijuana leads people to do items that they would never do when they were in their right state of mind. Marijuana DOES cause deaths.
So for all 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 depend on him to correct things. I’m sure he too would believe that the marijuana proposal is just a horrible one, and brings just negatives to the state of California. Just my two cents though! Feel free to state what you think, as I’m sure there are lots of people that are on the opposite side of the spectrum as me.
