Don’t give in to the ganja crowd
I am 16 years of age and I disapprove of the suggestion that marijuana be decriminalised or legalised. Why would anyone even think about doing that? Did you people even think before making that statement? Knowing the people of this nation, you give them an inch and they take a yard.
You think allowing them to have a certain quantity of marijuana would make them ease up on it? No. They would think to themselves, “The Government has made it LEGAL”. They’re not going to accept that only certain quantities are permitted. Did you people think about the repercussions of legalising it? I don’t think so.
I have heard so many youths saying they can’t wait for the legalisation of weed so they could use it. Is that what you people are encouraging? The promotion of youths trying it? Making them think it’s something “cool”?
Yes, marijuana is an ongoing problem but when a statement like that is made, the authorities are showing they have given up the fight against it. They are showing the nation that these criminals have overpowered them.
Take a stand and show these criminals that smoking and the selling of weed is ILLEGAL and it will continue to be so.
Show them that anyone caught with marijuana will be punished. Show us you’re a working Government and not one to give into these criminals. Why must people work hard in life to earn what they need and these criminals earn their way illegally? Rehana Ali
