Should Marijuana be legalized?
“Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit . . . unnatural?”― Bill Hicks
Marijuana was naturally grown on the earth, so don’t you think that should be legal to use? If your thinking no then there are some reason that will help you change your mind. Most people think Marijuana is just used to get high and do stupid stuff, but really Marijuana back in the day was used to make fabrics and fiber, it wasn’t just used for getting high. There are different names for marijuana its weed, pot, and dope, these words are most used by the drug abusers that do it and sell it.
