BERKELEY, CA – Marijuana. One of the most dangerous drugs that exists. And now the lawmakers in Washington are considering making it recreational. The effects of legal weed would be devastating. Imagine, a US where a person could walk into a gas station and behind the counter, revolting weed is available near fine tobacco products. Think about the business ruined by legalization. Gang culture relies on the distribution of marijuana for income. Legalization might take the proud culture of gangs out of America. And the poor corporations! They have spent years developing medications to sell to consumers, which albeit having some minor side effects, are undermined by cannabis. Having no side effects whatsoever, corporations will lose money that they worked so hard to earn because people will use marijuana. In addition to this, overdoses on weed may skyrocket. While there has been no recorded deaths due to marijuana, even one is too many. Marijuana is unacceptable and its usage should be prohibited since it is so detrimental.
