Marijuana is a substance that is consumed by many individuals. It is described as dried leaves and flowers of hemp plant that are smoked as a drug. Many individuals use this drug for many purposes, some may uses may be for a good cause and some may be detrimental. I believe that Canada should not legalize marijuana keep the way how currently is. I have 3 points to explain why I am against on legalizing marijuana.
By legalizing marijuana in Canada, it can increase the crime rates. If this drug is legalized, it can cause severe violence through the distribution of marijuana. For instance, it can surely increase the number of break-ins and robberies because people’s eyes will on be marijuana specifically. In addition, drug dealers will sell marijuana for a different price, and therefore the distribution will be very high from the access through friends and strangers.

By legalizing marijuana, it can surely be detrimental to smokers. It can make them loose their motivation towards their goals. From that, this will make our society look more unprofessional because by that time when it is legalized, almost everyone will be depending on the drug, rather than themselves. Marijuana is usually considered a gateway drug, meaning it opens a path to other or more dangourous drugs. People who use marijuana for recreational use, they begin testing out other harder drugs in search for bigger high, and harder drugs will severely impose negative impacts to proven addictive qualities
Marijuana can be severely harmful to an individual’s body. This can affect an individual cognitive function, where it can harms the verbal fluency, working memory and possibly kills developing brain cells. It can also lead to schizophrenia which is a long term of mental disorder where an individual will face a breakdown between thought, emotion and behaviour in people who are genetically inclined. According to statistics, ages from 11-17 can experience schizophrenia, chronic marijuana smokes can develop bronchitis, where an inflammation accompanied of airways that give oxygen to the lungs with stacks of mucous.
In conclusion, marijuana is a substance described as cannabis, especially as smoked in cigarettes. By legalizing this drug, it can effect our society in 3 ways such as the increasement of crime, the downgrader to our society members and lastly health affects. Crimes can surely be increased if the drug is legalized, e.g break-ins, violence eruption etc. People will loose their motiviation towards their prosperous goals and will be labelled as “unprofessionals” in our society because they will be constantly be depending on the drug rather than themselves. Lastly the most important part, it can effect an individuals body, where it can affect the cognitive function, such as loss of memory and causing deviant behaviour. Therefore this is why I think Canada should continue to keep the marijuana policy legalized.
