And i have to lead the class in a discussion about it Anyone got any more FACTS that will aid my arguement that marijuana should be legalized? So far i have this.... 1. Marijuana is a nontoxic drug that cannot cause death by overdose and has been proven to not cause lung cancer, compared alcohol which kills 50,000 people a year due to alcohol poisoning as well as cigarettes which kill about 400,000 people a year. 2. Enforcing marijuana prohibition costs taxpayers about $10 billion annually and results in the arrest of 734,000 people each year. This is far more than the total number of arrests for all major crimes combined, murder, rape, robbery, assault etc. 3. A new study from the School of medicine at UCLA shows that heavy marijuana use does not increase the users risk of cancer. anyone else got any other good facts?
