This paper argues in favor of the legalization of marijuana. The author provides a detailed discussion about the positive aspects of legalizing marijuana and supports his argument by comparing the side effects of marijuana to alcohol and tobacco that are legalized.

From the Paper:

"Although many people might believe that marijuana is harmful to our health, marijuana is non-toxic and never harms your brain or other organs ("Marijuana"), and, substantially, the only heath risk of marijuana is respiratory damage from smoking it (Zimmer 172). But, the damage from smoking marijuana is probably much less harmful than from smoking tobacco since the effects of marijuana last longer than that of tobacco, and marijuana smokers don't smoke as much as tobacco smokers do ("Marijuana")."
