Why is Marijuana (Cannabis) not legal for recreational purposes in the United States?
Not physically addicting.
Negligible physical harm.
Could be regulated and profited from.
The same reason stem cell research isn't fully legalized. People on their high "moral" horse.
Becuase federal law enforcment has labeled it a schedule 1 drug meaning that it has no medicinal value.
Also it blackends the brain and there are studies that suggest that the drug is linked to certain brain disorders you could get later on in life. Ones that get you hospitalized for the rest of your life.
There's a movie out called the Marijuana chronicles it shows how hemp was a leading crop in the US until some people in our government wanted to make it illegal because some blacks were smoking it, so it was just another way for them to throw blacks in jail back then, making it illegal just made more young people at the time try it as a way of revolting against our government. The movie is very educational
Marijuana is not legal because it causes a "high". The pharmaceutical companies will not allow the drug to be made legal, they will withhold fundraising campaign dollars if any party were to start a bill to legalize it because they would lose too much money - marijuana can make a person's medicine cabinet lose more than half of the pill bottles. It alleviates the symptoms of hundreds of diseases and ailments, from pain to cancer, radiation and chemotherapy side effects, ALS, MD, you name it, pot has some beneficial use!
But, for recreational use? It will never be legalized because the government would not be able to control who sells it, just like it is now
