Marijuana certainly has proven medical benefits, so I favor its legalization as a medication available only with a prescription. However, I oppose its use for recreational purposes, particularly when used by young people with still-developing brains. Driving under the influence of marijuana is particularly dangerous due to slow reflexes and short-term memory loss. Society may also suffer from legalization because heavy use often saps motivation and ambition, leaving us with users who become dependent on others for their financial support.

No! We see what it has done to states like CO, WA, and OR. Marijuana is THE gateway drug. It stunts mental maturity growth and effectively creates a welfare dependent class.

Say no to drugs!

Out here in California, illegal marijuana growing operations are harmful in several ways. Pot plants require LOTS of water, and that's water that is desperately needed for other things and plants like food crops - some orchard owners have even had to stop watering 1/3 of their trees (like almonds!) which is a huge investment lost in dead trees, because of water restrictions.

Illegal pot growers "farm" in hidden forest areas so there is the destruction of forest and the possibility of fires starting as well, from makeshift camping.

If that weren't enough, it's been discovered that many of the "workers" are the illegal border crossers (like in Texas recently) brought in by organized crime to work the pot plantations. These workers essentially become modern-day slaves as they do not have any identification/documentation and can't speak English, so they can't choose to simply run away and find other work - they would stand out. They do not have other family already settled here to relocate to. They are trapped and now dependent on their overseers for all their needs.

NO to illegal pot!
