Cannabis Laws: Just or Unjust?
According to the cannabis law, people are allowed to smoke medicinal marijuana if they carry a medical marijuana card. Now this is good and all, but not everyone will be issued a card and they may need one. On the other hand, people who regularly smoke cannabis and don’t have any physical or mental ailments that cannabis helps with, could be taken into custody if caught in the action of smoking marijuana.
It’s kind of ridiculous that one person can smoke cannabis but another cannot due to the cannabis laws. Cannabis actually has no negative results after smoking it, unless you count the terror some people reek on stockpiles of food within refrigerators a crime.
Even though there are dozens of states within the United States saying it is legally ok to smoke cannabis within their state lines, there were over 653,000 people arrested in the United States for cannabis related offenses in 2016. These estimates were figured out by the Marijuana Policy Project and are pretty accurate.
