♥ It will be an advance to fight assassinations caused by drug wars in the island.

Cons of the legalization of marihuana
♥ Some people can pretend to be sick just to get weed.
♥ Some people will use this as an excuse to smoke weed around.
♥ Instead of growing the correct amount of weed in their houses, some people can grow more canabis plants to sell them to make money.
This issue of the legalization of marijuana has been aroun for more than 40 years all over the world. There are many contries where canabis has been legalized like Egipt, Paraguay, Canada, Holand, Beljium, Mexico, Australia and some states in the U.S. like Mexico, New, York, Alasca, Oregon and many others. Back in the 1930's, was created the "Federal Bureau of Narcotics" in the United Stated by Harry J. Ansliger. This department created some laws to penalize the distribution of Marijuana. One of this law was the "Marihuana Tax Act" created in 1937 which was against the recreative use of weed, not the medical use. This has repercussions in the island since now a days it is ilegal in the island,
My oppinion on this issue
I think that the legalization of marihuna in Puerto Rico will have more negative effects than positive among the population. People will start faking diseases just to get the permits to grow this drug on the facilities of their homes. Also, this people (the ones faking diseases ) will take advantage of this situation and will start to grow not just one ounce of canabis, but more to sell around creating a bigger problem makingthe administration of this drug get out of hand making more difficult to stop the traffic of this drug. Furthermore, this issue will be one of many that people will want to be legal like the legalization of other drugs and even prostitution. If we continue like this, soon we will have the Puertorrican Red Light Distric just like the one in Amsterdam.
