The media has reported that a great number of citizens of this province are in favour of legalizing the use of marijuana.
I am rather ‘sitting on the fence’ regarding this matter, because I have little knowledge of the pros and cons on this subject .
One thing I can’t understand, though.
People are constantly being advised to kick the cigarette habit because of the damage to the lungs from smoke.
Therefore, why should marijuana be made legal, since it, too, elicits smoking and therefore polluting the air and perhaps even harming others from second-hand smoke?
Smoke is smoke, isn’t it, no matter what one is smoking ?
