Default Re: Should Marijuana be legal?

I forgot to cover the medical benefits from it. Now I do agree with it for medical reasons. Legit medical reasons. If doctors can prove that it can help a patient then it should be given to them. I feel though that it should be done the same policy of prescription medication. Yes, pills and prescriptions are beneficial, but they can be abused hence why they need to be controlled. Just because prescription medication is beneficial doesn't mean we give them to everyone. I feel that for your argument you say "oh since its beneficial for the ill, we should legalize it for everyone." That shouldn't be how it works. It should be given to the people who need it. You shouldn't use another's need for it as an excuse for you to have it. I really doubt you're ill and are in need of it. You're just arguing for that reason because its convenient and works in your favor even though it doesn't apply to your personal need or requirement.
