Now Reading:legalization | Is Ending the War on Drugs the Same as Ending the War on Poverty? ‘Moving Beyond Legalization’ Hits All the Points!
‘Weed Nation: Moving Beyond Legalization’ is a fantastic debate that brings up some compelling arguments both for and against cannabis legalization.
We are quick to get swept up in the blatant logic behind cannabis legalization — but what happens after?
Cannabis is commonly compared to alcohol, harnessing its regulatory framework as a model for developing cannabis policy.
But marijuana is markedly different — in fact you could say it’s contrary to alcohol. One is an upper, one is a downer; one increases aggression, one reduces aggression. This means that the future of America with a prevalent cannabis culture is hard to predict and heavily reliant on our imagination.
Watch this awesome debate that investigates the War on Drugs in America. One thing is for certain: legal or not, cannabis not going away anytime soon.
