Many Americans are fine with the use of prescription drugs,alcohol and cigarettes, which can be physically harmful to the human body. Why is it not legalized right now? Many Americans also like taking part in recreational cannabis use, which have no proven harmful effects to the body. Why exactly is the government delaying the legalization of even medical marijuana in the country? I.nvestigate Why should medical marijuana be legalized? CONS CONS Medical marijuana is not a legitimate medicine. The brain is not fully developed until were 25, and using any kind of mind-altering substance impacts that development and needs to go through the FDA process.

There is a higher chance of Americans who are prescribed opiods to become addicted to their medications. S.peculate Speculations Many people believe that Marijuana can do more harm than good with daily use. How can we change the stigma on Marijuana? The FDA has approved of many medications that have negative side effects How can the FDA not approve of medical marijuana, but approve of drugs that have negative side effects, and can be potentially worse for your health overtime? According to mic.com, “marijuana is still considered a schedule one drug, meaning that it’s the DEA’s most serious category of illegal substances”. How can marijuana be considered a schedule one drug, when there has been a lot of research that proves it has many benefits? According to a report from THE HEALTH EFFECTS OF CANNABIS AND CANNABINOIDS, the report states that “The evidence suggests that smoking cannabis does not increase the risk for certain cancers (i.e., lung, head, and neck) in adults.” How can tobacco be approved, when it has been proven that tobacco is a huge reason people get lung cancer?

The party has lost influences, funding has decreased and support in general towards the party has decreased. With the arrival of legal recreational marijuana market in Canada it could potentially end up diminishing the party that has been campaigning since 2002. Since the party's only policy has been passed in some places the odds of survival does not look good.
