I read an article today called "Silverthorne approves rules for pot dispensaries" which was made by The Associated Press; this was speaking about the new laws for the production and sales of marijuana which can affect many of us because marijuana is a powerful drug and if someone was to get cancer, they would probably get a medical marijuana card. The laws are now changing. A few years ago, the thought of marijuana being legal was totally out of the question. But now, it is becoming legal. We are living in a new world that is becoming worse. Marijuana may be becoming legal, but it's still a drug. I believe that alcohol is more intoxicating than marijuana though. Maybe marijuana should be legal instead of alcohol though. Alcohol can get you hung-over, it can give you alcohol poisoning, it can have affects on your liver, it controls you. It can kill you, it makes you more daring. When was the last time you heard about a driver that crashed and killed someone but the driver was stoned? You don't. Because marijuana just makes you want to sit around and watch Ren and Stimpy all day. When was the last time you heard of a drunk driver killing a family? I don't know maybe... a week ago? Marijuana is now basically legal but I believe the alcohol laws should be relooked.
