The Logical Set up
The effects of marijuana on the body have been proven to be not as severe or addictive as cigarettes. The question arises: Why are we still allowing distribution, use, and taxation of cigarettes and not marijuana?
This cartoon mocks the use of medical marijuana. The cartoonist obviously is not informed about the benefits it has for cancer patients, people with althimers disease, and patients who regularly have to endure extreme pain and nausea.
This cartoon shows the misconception that many people have about legalization of marijuana. They see it as just a drug for hippies to get doped up. They do not consider the massive amount of economic benefits, the medical benefits, or its history throughout civilization that marijuana has. People like this artist need to be better educated about marijuana.
This cartoon shows how easily accessible marijuana is, even after the government spends billions a year trying to get rid of it. It would be much more beneficial to tax and regulate it rather than outlaw it. This way the money would stay out of the drug dealer's pocket and be used by the government for beneficial programs or reduce our national debt.
