The debate is on in my country right now. Government ministers are in parliament debating a law for the right to have individuals legally having small quantity of marijuana in their possession. I know that this is going to harm us as a nation if such a law is passed and I just do not want it to become a reality. The smoking of marijuana is not something that should be glorified or publicized in any way. I know the negative effects that marijuana can have on someone first hand and to have a country filled with persons going around in this state legally, is just something that really scares me. I know that the drug is one that possesses medicinal properties and this should be tapped into by trained individuals only. It cannot be harnessed just by smoking. I would want to see people gaining access to it solely for medicinal purposes and through prescriptions only, not through the smoking of it.
