Why Marijuana is Illegal and Tobacco is Legal
This is a very interesting viewpoint on the subject. What if this was the case? Have we not done this same thing in the past (prohibition)? Now alcohol proves to be a terrible substance. It is legal to produce, but not without strict regulations. As Chomsky says marijuana will grow anywhere so it can’t be regulated – profit would only go to the dealer and not to the government. A counter for this argument would be the high achieved from someone using marijuana is different from that of tobacco. Everyone reacts differently, and in my opinion, until there is a just way of testing if someone is high at work, I would rather it remain illegal. I operate cranes for a living, and if another operator is high, nobody will know about it until after the accident happens.
