Legalize Drugs? Not a Solution

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’.

The video is from CNN News. The video has caused many controversies, specially because it might show that Zimmerman might have lied that night.

Recently, I reviewed the article “The White Privilege” by Peggy McIntosh which is an article featuring a list of all the “privileges” White people unconsciously have. For the article click here. Being a curious young adult I decided to look for more information about the article, however I was distracted by another article that was inspired by McIntosh’s article, the title of the article was “The Straight Privilege”. The article is very similar to McIntosh’s article, it features a list of “privileges” straight people unconsciously have. The list goes from TV characters, bed time stories to having to explain why people are straight. The article can be found here.
