Abstract

Marijuana is a psychoactive drug used for both recreational and medical purposes which can be smoked or consumed. It is a term for the dried flowers and leaves of the plant Cannabis sativa. This drug is used by millions of individuals across the United States, both legally and illegally. While some of these users are smoking prescribed medical marijuana (CBD-based) to treat concerns such as anxiety, epilepsy, and pain, the majority of marijuana usage is recreational (THC-based). Within the past several years, more and more states have been continuously legalizing this drug in both its medical and recreational form. These decisions have created several controversies and issues regarding whether legalization is beneficial to society. Marijuana should not be legalized because it negatively impacts the public health, is unethical and unmoral, and contradicts the federal law.
