Marijuana Points

Introduction:Many states are balloting for marijuana use. These points might help you to intelligently know some points about marijuana if you are asked to vote about the legalization of this substance whether it is county or state ballot.

  • 01

    Legal Use

    Marijuana is available in some states for medical use under a doctor's order with permission granted to buy and use for the management of pain. The doctor does not always give the patient all the marijuana they request. It is quite often the terminally patient who is granted marijuana use by the medical professional.

  • 02

    Marijuana Use

    In most cases marijuana is smoked as in a rolled cigarette paper. The weed is purchased either illegally from a dealer or from a designated state official source. When the patient acquires the permission to use marijuana, that medical permission can be shown to officials should there be any questions about the possession of that drug. Selling to any person is not permitted by the person who is legally using marijuana for themselves.

  • 03

    Growing and Detection

    Marijuana is easily grown under specifically designed grow lights so can be actually grown and harvested without being detected. It is the bulk suppliers that get discovered when a home is raided for other reasons. Many homes are rented just for the sole purpose of growing marijuana, then are uncovered when usual household duties are not performed as a family would take care of everyday or weekly. Neighborhood watches will sometimes be aware of unusual inactivity in a home, which will have them alert officials of the statistics of a home or building..

    Marijuana Olfactory Properties

    Marijuana is sweet smelling, so the odor is unique when it is smelled. People who are not familiar with the odor question the source since it is not a familiar one. Once it is smelled, it is an unforgettable scent. Even when mixed with regular cigarette or pipe tobacco, the pungent odor is known because it is so unusual.

  • 05

    Marijuana Down the Road

    Marijuana use could require other tax payer revenues. The habitual use of marijuana quite often leads to more hard core drug use in some individuals. This creates social and economic difficulties both in families and neighborhoods requiring professional assistance and facilities for the drug users who have graduated from marijuana to more expensive and harder to acquire drugs. Check with your local Police department for information on marijuana related arrests and complications from its legalization before casting your personal vote on any marijuana ballot. Ask your medical doctor the long time ramifications of marijuana use so you will know more points when you vote on marijuana.

    I'm not decided...unfortunately, I think medical marijuana has the potential to also enlarge illegal use. No easy answer for sure.

    Very well written list, thank you.

    Nice, even handed look at the subject. I would have to disagree with the point about it leading to other drugs however. The simple fact of illegality keeps the distributorship in the hands of black market dealers, who might just be vending other illegal substances. Other than that, it is no more a "gateway drug" than alcohol or cigarettes (and form all I've heard, no more harmful than either of these substances, either).

    Thanks for the info on marijuana! H5!

  • JennyHeart 1/27/2011 Flag This Comment

    I agree with Bossypants totally. It may indeed help terminally ill with their pain control. I would hope their doctor would be sure before giving this to any of his patients.

    Hard to say but I just don't believe there are really medicinal advantages for this substance, and yet I don't know. Many say that it enhances the appetite so for people with illness that require good nourishment, okay. You outlined some great points that I will not forget from you wealth of knowledge. Thanks and H5!

    Wow, this is a hot topic. I guess I could get my head bit off by some people here if I dared say "Gateway Drug." Your list is well written.

  • ListMaker 1/24/2011 Flag This Comment

    Agree with workhomeunion; marijuana use doesn't necessarily lead to stronger drugs. Now, that said, I feel it should be legalized all the way across the board. Making it legal would give needed taxes to the states and take away the allure of an illegal drug. It's really not all that different from liquor except you 'sober' up quicker.

  • jseven 1/23/2011 Flag This Comment

    I have seen both sides of it and do not think it should just be an everyday recreational thing for people to do. But, I do see the medicinal purpose for it as it is an herb and many herbs are for natural remedies. I think cannabis much better than suffering with chronic pain and using heavy narcotics for it. I also think it's much better than Prozac and all the narcotics used for depression and tons of other illnesses. As far as smoking it, I would think a tea or eating the herb would be healthier. As with anything, people will abuse it, regardless of it being legal or not.

    Thank you for the informative list. Nice thoughts that were brought up here. H5.

  • BonnieDossKnight 1/23/2011 Flag This Comment

    Never having used Marijuana, I'm on the fence about its potential benefits for (my) chronic pain. But, you've written a comprehensive list about its legalization, which will help to inform voters. Thank you. HI5

  • PriscillaBenfield 1/23/2011 Flag This Comment

    Very interesting overview. I do not believe that smoking marijuana leads to abusing more serious drugs. I do believe in its potential to ease the suffering of those who are terminally ill or for the management of the side effects of chemotherapy. As far as legalization goes, there are many pros and cons. Good list!

  • gerrielynn 1/23/2011 Flag This Comment

    Thanks for bringing this important topic to light for both information and discussion. Another very helpful article/list. High 5 to you my friend!

  • workhomeunion 1/23/2011 Flag This Comment

    Really good points on Marijuana .. however, Marijuana use does not really lead to other drugs. Most people who use more addicting drugs had already tried the drug b4 using Marijuana, or wanted to try other drugs. Saying Marijuana leads to more potent drugs is equivalent to saying that smoking cigarettes leads to other addicting narcotics, and certainly cigarettes are addicting but don't lead to the use of other drugs.

  • bossypants 1/23/2011 Flag This Comment

    Comprehensive information about this thorny topic! I find it interesting that some of those who oppose legalization are current users (who fear regulation) and those who support it are mothers (just as in the repeal of prohibition). As you say, we need to be well informed before voting.
