      This article definitely caught my attention because it was a viewpoint I haven’t had the chance to hear from before! Your article was overall logical, detailed and persuasive. I was especially surprised at the part where you mention “This is “power compounded” because it give power to the people with power and it also gives power to the powerless. By legalizing weed it will decrease the crime rates and war on drugs with policies. Legalizing weed will increase the population of people that use it. Looking at the Government, the local or state legislative branches can legalize weed for smokers that’s 21 and smokers that’s above the age of 21.” Not only would legalizing weed help benefit the economy but also decrease the crime rates. You might find this article interesting “https://www.heritage.org/crime-and-justice/commentary/why-we-shouldnt-legalize-marijuana” because it provides a different viewpoint. I am excited to read more of your work!
