Lately, the social movement to legalized drugs, specially marijuana has been growing. Many arguments are used in order to support the legalization of marijuana, one of them is that it will end the “War on Drugs”, it will decrease the use of marijuana(Just as how Portugal and other countries ‘supposedly’ show). There has been an increase on liberal media for the support of the legalization of marijuana, not to mention news articles on many websites.
I believe that the legalization of marijuana will occur in the future, and perhaps within the next 5 years. I do agree that many states have irrational legal punishments for people caught in possession of marijuana, however I do not agree that legalizing drugs, even marijuana is going to decrease the use nor end the ‘War on Drugs’.
