Instead of spending money arresting marijuana smokers, this society should build institutes in which scientists could study the medical use of marijuana. The actual health problem which prohibition is supposed to solve is lower in comparison to other health problems. Tobacco causes 6 percent of all deaths in the world. In Slovakia, 11,000 people die from tobacco each year: 4,000 from alcohol. Society tries to solve the health problems caused by tobacco and alcohol by regulation and education. This is the best solution for health problems related to drugs as well. Prohibition can never solve the drug problem as well as education. If marijuana is not be legalized for common use, it should at least be legalized for medical use. Marijuana is a big and very often sole help for treating some serious and painfull illnesses.
This paper deals with the advantages which legalization of marijuana could bring. These could help the Slovak economy, health, medicine, reduction of crime. These could positively influence life in the whole society and influence the life of all individuals. Marijuana smokers put leaders of countries under pressure by asking for your rights and legalization. And they should not end till they get what they want. As Thomas Jefferson said in 1776
"The oppressed should rebel,
and they will continue to rebel and raise disturbance
until their civil rights are fully restored to them
and all partial distinctions, exclusions and incapacitations
