Student’s name Instructor’s name Course Date Legalization of Marijuana Should Marijuana be legalized? The debate on whether marijuana should be legalized or not has remained unsolved in many parts of the world. This debate has not only been discussed on a local platform but also on a worldwide platform and up to now there has not been a unison conclusion. In fact in America alone some states support the complete legalization or decriminalization of marijuana while others are completely against it. The interesting bit about this is that some states in America only allow one to have a maximum of six plants (Adam n.d.). This is what has prompted the need to go deeper into this debate with the aim of uncovering more facts on the same. Therefore this research paper will look at both sides of the debate but will lean more on why marijuana should not be also comes with its risks such as brain damage and an increased risk to some types of cancer. This is why I can confidently conclude that marijuana should not be legalized or decriminalized because the risks involved are greater than the benefits reaped if any.
