I probably have a slightly uncommon opinion on this. I think it would make sense for a lot of countries to decriminalize marijuana.
The scam of medical marijuana should be exposed though, and it should not be allowed to market marijuana as medicin or prescribe it as such. The medical use is severely overrated. If someone came up with a pill that had identical effects to marijuana, never in a million years would it get approval by any drug agency. Too many drugs outperform marijuana and with far less side effects. The idea that something is natural should not lead to an easier path through the drug approval system.

The drug should remain illegal, due to effects such as psychosis and anxiety, as well as deaths indirectly caused by the drug (car accidents, suicides etc). But I support either a decriminalizion or reduction in punishment to a small fee for the user. A legalization can also make sense in the case of a national emergency, to remove the market for drug cartels.

Oh yes, a drug that doctors prescribe to people for treating all kinds of conditions and this doctor uses to cure her daughter’s rare condition (which anti-psychotics haven’t worked at all) totes doesn’t have any real medicinal value:

God bless that man. 

Oh, and if they really cared about curbing drug-related car accidents, they’d ban alcohol because I’ve got news for you: it causes way more accidents than weed. It’s not even close. And it only causes psychosis if you already have a predisposition to it before using it which newsflash: so can alcohol, AIPD is actually a real thing, and it actually kills people directly and causes liver failure and heart disease and contributes to domestic violence while marijuana does none of those things (guess what doctors say is worse for you) and that’s totally legal.

Back when I was a teenager, I was stupidly in a car where the driver was under the influence of cannabis... we were such idiots, because we could have fucking walked to our destination faster than the 3kmph he was driving!

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
