Fellow Californians…yes, I’m from California. I’ve been hearing more and more people referring to the entire “Marijuana will save our economy”, and frankly, I possibly could not DISAGREE MORE! Call it opinion, but I call it fact. Marijuana is not going to save our economy. We are in a recession, face it. It seems like some individuals out there want to utilize this economy to create something that is outright ridiculous seem reasonable.If you watch the headlines, or have any sort of social life, you’re aware of all of the negatives which are carried alongside drugs, especially marijuana.
Furthermore, all of 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 if marijuana is made legal, the degree of crime at the border will probably sky rocket. California extracts Is it really worth it? Making this 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 past thing we truly need is a drug war going on in our country, or state for that matter. The reason I say country is that when California does it, other states are sure to follow.
Marijuana activists claim that there have been 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 because of health problem from marijuana. Nonetheless, marijuana leads people to do items that they’d never do when they certainly were in their right state of mind. Marijuana DOES cause deaths.
So for each of you all Californians who think this idea is a superb one, please sit down 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 are able to rely on him to fix things. I’m sure that he too would believe the marijuana proposal is a horrible one, and will bring only negatives to their state of California. Just my two cents though! Feel free to say everything you think, as I’m sure there are numerous folks who are on the opposite side of the spectrum as me.
