DRUGS & SOCIETY

The author of this report has been asked to offer an opinion on what should be done in terms of marijuana and the laws that surround it. The four general options are keeping the status quo, decriminalizing its possession or legalizing possession and controlled distribution (e.g. Colorado, Washington, etc.). The author of this report has been asked to define what "decriminalizing" marijuana would mean. Basically, it means that people that possess marijuana would not be arrested although fines might still apply. An exception to this would be if someone is possessing enough marijuana that they are ostensibly into trafficking or dealing without a license or in a state where it's not legal to sell weed as a business. Of the three options, the status quo is certainly not a way to go. Indeed, the federal and state/local laws relating to marijuana completely conflict in many instances. This would generally mean that the Supremacy Clause would overrule the states or localities.

On the other hand, the effects of heroin, methamphetamine and crack (just to name three of the nastier ones) lead to a real and physical addiction, lead to crime from people feeding their habits or dealing on the streets and so forth. When it comes to marijuana, so long as children are not being abused and drivers are not stoned to the gills, the legalization and controlled sale of marijuana is the way to go. However, one major caveat is that the practices mentioned should be legalized at the federal level or at least left to the states. It would be nice for all of the states to be consistent but that simply will not happen unless forced by the federal government and even that would be hard to pull off. Perhaps allowing states to regulate marijuana on their own accord would be a middle ground.
