More Americans are smoking , eating and drinking marijuana and they now ,more than ever support full legalization of the long banned plant.
A Gallup poll published on Wednesday shows 58% of American people think marijuana should be legalized , last year this was about 51% with just 40% believing it should be illegal.
The trends appears to be reinforcing each other, experts say who have noticed that border marijuana doesn’t brings the forth abusive behaviour. Young people especially are concentrating marijuana into wax and oil that give a far more potent hit than smoking a joint. Prohibition advocates say that highly concentrated marijuana products ,which can also include pot brownies can cause extreme insanity and hallucinations, which are considered a form of madness.
The 23 States and District of Columbia have all legalized some form of medical marijuana use .Alaska , Colorado ,Washington ,Oregon and Columbia District also legalized recreational marijuana sale and use. Marijuana remains entirely illegal at the federative level although Congress has ordered the Justice Department not to meddle with medical marijuana programs.
The belief that marijuana is safe is increasing and so the landscape is changing .We know there are a lot of harms that are related to it said .JAMA paper co-author Bridget Grant.The laboratory chief of the epidemiology and biometry lab at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
Advocates of legalization say concerns about marijuana particularly the reefer-madness style scare spec long used in American War on Drug are overblown and say the vast majority of users enjoy it responsibly . They say the increasing assumption, of marijuana legalization and use meditate the reality that marijuana is far safer than many other accepted drug from prescription opiates like OxyContin to alcohol.
According to Mason Tvert of the pro-legalization Marijuana Policy Project. ” Theres more use collectively because people are recognizing that marijuana use is not noxious.”
According Dr. Scott Krakower, the assistant chief of psychiatry at Zucker Hillside Hospital in Glen Oaks, N.Y. Two wrongs does not make a right he said citing enhanced youth use and hospitalizations for lunacy, and hallucinations from marijuana .”There are people are out there who get into a lot of difficulty because of weed.”
Expert of Health say that marijuana use risks harming the developing brain of younger people. Damaging growth now could lead to problems a decade from now they fear.
