Legalizing Marijuana By: Cody Pittman
So we all know marijuana is illegal in most states but honestly it’s like the prohibition of alcohol; it didn’t work. For most this is true “If your parents tell you not to your going to”. So if the government tells people not to do something, they will do it anyway.

However there have been plenty of deaths reported by pain killer over dose so marijuana has them beat in this point of view as well. Now we all know marijuana is 100% natural its comes from the ground we step on the earth we live on and god put it here as a natural pain killer so why not take advantage of it. The only problem is people abuse it way to often I mean I guess it’s okay because people abuse pain killers each and every day .In clinical stance marijuana should be legalized however people should only use what as needed.
