On The Marijuana Issue:
Marijuana, and its derivatives, is used in varying degree and for numerous reasons by people throughout the world. Marijuana, however, is illegal in many parts of the world, including the US. The subject of whether or not it should be legalized, and/or decriminalized is raging in the US. Supporters for both the decriminalization and the legalization of marijuana are growing in number. The number of people in jail for crimes involving drug use is high, taxdollars used in the drug wars is also high. Other countries have successfully legalized and/or decriminalizing marijuana and other drugs but there is a diversity in laws and restrictions. The debate over the two terms used: legalization and decriminalization, also play a role in the marijuana debate. What opinions exist among the Secular Community? Should marijuana be legalized? Decriminalized? Or would these actions be harmful to society? Here we hope to debate the issues involved in the marijuana debate, presenting two sides of the subject.
