    Yaqui,

    This is a great poem! I love how you talked about how people can make a difference in the world, but they have to put their mind to it. You can’t just believe in change, you have to become the change if you want to make a difference. I liked this a lot! Keep writing more!

    • Koji,
      This is a really interesting post. I have obviously heard about the debate over legalization but I never thought of the connection to the opiate problem. That is a very interesting idea and I personally think that if it would relieve the pain of people in need of opiates then it would be a very sensible idea to use medical marijuana. Do you know if there has been any testing in this matter of marijuana in place of opiates?

    • Koji, your post was very well written. I have also read a lot about the emerging and controversial legalization of marijuana within the United States. I found the article that I included in the bottom of my comment quite compelling. It shows the social and physical preference for marijuana as a pain killer as compared to opiates. This article examines some of the positive ways the legalization of marijuana could affect the current opiate crisis. I find your topic very intriguing and I look forward to reading more of your research. All the best my friend——

    • Hi,
      I thought your post was very well written. I am just as curious as you about this topic. It always puzzles me because if we have a potential way to solve a scary problem why wouldnt we do it. Im sure marijuana could have its downfalls just like any drug but through all its research it seems way less harmful then cocaine or all the scary drugs. I hope eventually people will stop getting addicted to any sort of drugs because they do ruin lives of the users and those around them but that seems unrealistic to ask of people so for now if theres a better solution by replacing with marijuana I say we start trying to switch people.
