This is an analysis of legalization of marijuana.Im writing in "for".. that it should be legalized.
In 1930, the U.S public was deceived intentionally by the government with “Reefer Madness”, a movie about the tragic events that ensue when high school students are lured by pushers to try "marijuana": a hit and run accident, manslaughter, suicide,rape, and descent into madness all ensue. The simple truth is that humans have probably been smoking marijuana since the discovery of fire, and we have been eating it since before then.
Your argument is good up to here.
Even though I have never consumed any drug or never will, but I believe that anything that alters any part of our body is technically considered a drug, so why is high fructose corn syrup,sugar,tobacco and alcohol is legal.
This paragraph is very uneven, and probably irrelevant.
You can define "drug" however you like, but if you are going to use the term to include sugar and coffee, etc, then why the protest that you've never consumed any drugs and maybe never will?
Further more, the pharmaceutical industry, Vioxx(Rofecoxib) etc. have never faced any charges in-spite of its consumption outcome.
The pharmaceutical industry has certainly faced many legal charges over drugs that have caused damage. The sentence is factually incorrect. Vioxx is one pharmaceutical drug out of tens of thousands, and while I don't know this specific case, the phrase "the pharmaceutical industry, Vioxx(Rofecoxib) etc." is meaningless.
That being said, how does this apply to the legalization of marijuana?
I think your argument here is that, since pharmaceutical drugs are legal and can harm people, marijuana should also be legalized even if it harms people. If so, you probably should make it a bit clearer.
Marijuana is now completely legal in some states but Federal law still over-rules the state law. So I think if
drugs aremarijuana is legalized,
Hang on. You are arguing for the legalization of marijuana, not "drugs", many of which are already legal according to your definition.
it would decrease the crime rate and it will also take away the power from the drug lords, who sell it illegally.
A good point, but I don't think drug lords make much money from marijuana.
On the contrary, people are any way going to consume
drugsmarijuana, whether or not they areit is legal.
You start your argument for legalization of marijuana very well. You then start arguing about something else, and forget about marijuana completely. To pass this essay, I would have to ask you to rewrite it and stick to the topic.
