今天论文代写机构Fanessay小编整理了一篇Paper代写范文--Legalization of marijuana，本篇文章阐述的内容关于大麻合法化。早在1937年，美国人民就开始实施《大麻税法》，要求人们在出售前获得许可证，但很快就通过了，几乎没有任何争论。2012年晚些时候，科罗拉多州和华盛顿州的选民开始将21岁及以上的人使用和销售大麻合法化。然而，在法案通过后不久，在这个问题上出现了一些法律争论。有人认为大麻在宗教、社会、医疗和政治等方面不适合娱乐使用。该法案通过后，世界各地的大麻地位发生了法律上的变化，从完全禁止到允许个人使用某种剂量的大麻，导致了世界各地的各种战争。然而，尽管有一些支持者，但同时也有许多反对者。
The American people initially introduced the Marijuana Tax Act as early as in 1937, which asked people to attain a license before selling, was passed quickly with little argument. Later in 2012, Colorado and Washington’s voters moved to legalize the use and sale of marijuana by those who are 21 and older (Hickenlooper and Governor, 243). However, some legal squabble on this issue emerged shortly after the act was passed. Some people think that marijuana is not suitable for recreational use in many aspects such as religious, social, medical and political aspects. After the act was passed, the Marijuana’s position has changed legally all over the world from a total prohibition to allowing a certain dose used by individuals, resulting in various fights throughout the world. Nevertheless, while there are some supporters, there are also many opponents at the same time.
The supporters support the legalization of marijuana for the following reasons: firstly, the whole prohibition is against the individual freedom to some extent while all countries should defer to its citizens’ self-determination as well as personal freedom. Secondly, the whole prohibition will not prevent customers from purchasing the weed, nor will it prevent business man from producing and selling it. On the contrary, it will increase the marijuana medicine’s final price due to the condition of black market. In addition, it will cause users to commit crimes the marijuana adductors want to fulfill their addictions. Thirdly, the legalization of marijuana will assist in reducing expense in health care by abating the probability of casual ingestion or overdoses of an intended drug by adhering to the drug purity’s normalization that put forward by the state during manufacturing and selling. Fourthly, taking marijuana will do no harm to a third person. Thus, a whole prohibition is unnecessary. While the legalization of marijuana has no harm to a third party, the war on drugs, which will put non-users’ family members or friend into prison, will bring about serious effect on third parties. According to a relevant research, legalization was more preferred to by physicians who themselves had used marijuana, cocaine, and amphetamines while had not used alcohol, cigarettes, or tranquilizers(Linn, Yager and Leaker, 714)..
The opponents also have their reasons. Firstly, the legalization of drugs will increase the number of drug adductors instead of rescuing those existing users. Secondly, drug will bring about harm to third parties, such as raising the risk of health care cost, bringing about violence linked to the use of drugs, neglecting the children due to those drug-addicted parents and so on. Thirdly, drug salesman will sell the drug to children. Many students in high school say that drugs are easier to attain since the legalization of marijuana. Besides, it will give child wrong implication that the use of drug is acceptable (Joffe, Alain and Samuel, e633).
As for me, I am an opponent of the legalization of marijuana. Apart from the harm to children, it will do great harm to people’s health condition. Just as the saying goes, each medicine has its side effect, let alone addicting to the drugs. Worse still, the use of marijuana not only does great harm to the users’ health condition, it will destroy their ability to think logically (Friedlander, Arthur and Robert, 179). Besides, the legalization of marijuana is of no help to disseminate themselves from taking other drugs.
