The legalization of drugs has always been a problem in the United States Some people agree with the Idea of legalizing drugs such as marijuana cocaine heroin and many others These people argue that with the legalization of these drugs the crime rate and other social problems would reduce While their opponent argue that the legalization of drugs would only add to the already high crime rates and many social problems we have in the United States Both sides both have very good arguments as to why drugs should or should not be legalized in the United StatesThe battle between the government date back as early as the year 1914 This is the year in which the government passed the Harrison Narcotic act This act asked for the punishment of those who were illegally in possession and use of marijuana Penalties for the sale and or possession of illegal drugs were established by the Drug Abuse Control Amendments of 1965 Surprisingly enough through all of these drug laws marijuana remained legal until 1970 Even though most drugs were now illegal in the Untied States more than fourteen million Americans used drugs at least once a month in the late 1980sWhat would be some of the benefits from the legalization of drugs Well for the actual user there would be numerous benefits from the legalization of such drugs as marijuana First would be the price of the drugs Drug costs would dramatically decrease by ninety percent if they were made legal Also the availability of them would increase Heroine at one time was close to becoming legal would have been available at any corner market and even treated like aspirin without any restrictionsAlong with the benefits comes the obvious dangers that would rise from the legalization of drugs One of the first considerations that comes to a persons mind when thinking of the possible dangers drugs is the thought of children being able to obtain marijuana
