Marijuana always has raised a very big eyebrow in almost every American home. Those for legalizing the use of the cannabis most believe its use is to smoke it, but those who do not choose to use marijuana are thought to be in favor of keeping it illegal. Opposing views on the subject of decriminalizing the plant has caused much controversy over the past twenty years and still remains an important issue. The legalization of marijuana in the Unites States would drastically reduce crime in cities and form a more productive society through its positive uses. The ongoing war for drugs deals with every people of society. Every year, the United States government is spending large amounts of money to control drug use and to enforce laws, which are to protect society from the hazards of drugs. Some concur that the war against drugs is not needed and that we have already lost the war on drugs, and the only way to fix the problem to end most of the fighting altogether is by decriminalizing the use of marijuana. William Buckley said, "Pot is harmful, but people should not go to jail for smoking it" (Buckley 1A). Buckley a college professor at Columbian University has come forward to say he smoked marijuana on a worldwide televised show in 1973. Buckley was quoted as saying, "There were a half-million arrests due to pot use in 1973 respectively this makes the realization that there has been a breakdown in communication between the public and the police" (Buckley 1C). Over decades later, Buckley's words still come in today. Eight years later, an author covering on the legalization of marijuana had these feelings of "anti-pot laws activists" by stating; "Decriminalization is supported by an increasing number of responsible persons who are seeking a rational and humane solution to an issue too long dominated by myth, emotion and misunderstanding" (Price B5).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
