My research question is: Will legalizing marijuana in the US cut down violence mainly within distributor robberies and distributor scams and will it enhance it or cause an uproar in society?
Recently I read an article on legalizing marijuana in the US and how the government felt on this issue. Some government officials really didn't care for the legalizing of this drug. In some ways the drug was more of a pro than a con. Other officials felt otherwise, they felt that society would abuse the use of this drug, and cause more violence in society, now that there was actual laws to have possession of this drug. Their main problem was that the drug numbs your senses, which can result in a negative outcome and/or result in harm. Another dominant point described is the violence that occurs with just the distribution of the drug is pretty crucial. I picked this topic because I know that the legalizing of marijuana is a topic constantly mentioned in the news. But the violence that come hand in hand with the drug isn't. I mainly wanted to learn more so, I can inform others on the pros and cons of the of legalization of this drug, the different views on the violence behind the drugs, and the harm that be caused by the abuse of this drug.
One thing about KBCC students is that we have a desire to want to learn. Although we juggle the life complications of family, jobs, and other personal problems, we push to strive to greatness. We want to better ourselves not just for ourselves, but in general for our families and children. Personally I am beginning the next step in my life as a freshman, and I am driven to be successful. Here at KBCC many of my professors push me past my limits. Limits are crushed and my path of success becomes clearly visible. Now that I am continuing my career in a higher level of basketball, I only see the means to make it.
