Puntos Negativos De La Legalizacion De La Marihuana
While the PAA does not believe marijuana use should be legalized, we believe it should be decriminalized in order to reduce penalties for marijuana-related offences to criminal charges or civil penalties. Our efforts must focus on prevention and treatment, not on their imprisonment: we want to give our young people a bright future, not deprive them of their future. We`ve seen a lot of marijuana in the news lately, as several states legalize it for medical reasons and other states for other reasons. And while there`s a lot of disagreement about these laws, there`s one thing we all agree on: marijuana has also been linked to an increased risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, and transient ischemic attacks during acute intoxication. The direct effects of cannabinoids on various target receptors, CB1 receptors in arterial blood vessels, and indirect effects on vasoactive components explain marijuana`s harmful effects on vascular resistance and coronary microcirculation. When it comes to the risk of mental illness, regular marijuana use is associated with an increased risk of anxiety and depression. It is associated with psychosis (including schizophrenia), especially in cases of genetic susceptibility where marijuana can negatively affect the course of the disease. It is difficult to establish a causal link in these studies because factors other than marijuana use (psychosocial) may be directly related to the risk of mental illness, predisposing to both marijuana use and mental illness. Smoking marijuana is associated with airway inflammation, increased airway resistance, and pulmonary hyperinflation, associations consistent with the fact that regular marijuana smokers are more prone to chronic bronchitis.
Respiratory immune competence may also be compromised by increased rates of respiratory infections and pneumonia. In a column published on his website, presidential candidate and leader of the Futuro Nacional, Jorge Larrañaga, said before the vote of the Senate of the Republic on the bill “Marijuana and its derivatives: control and regulation of the state of import, export, cultivation, cultivation, harvesting, production, acquisition, storage, marketing, distribution and consumption”: “You are not dealing with drugs. Drugs are harmful, they have a negative impact on society, families and, of course, the individuals who use them. Faced with the state`s inability to respond to the fight against drug trafficking, the government proposed nationalization and legalization. Exceptionally, we try to solve the problem by offering hostages to our boys. This is unacceptable. The government is opening a door in the void. And he listed 20 reasons why he did not vote on the aforementioned bill, ethical, operational, legal and future objections. “We need to legislate about new schools, about how we improve education. We proposed to discuss the creation of 500 full-time schools, the inclusion of English, etc., etc. We want to work on what`s important, not marijuana. The drug is not exchanged.
20 reasons not to vote for marijuana legalization Drugs are harmful and negatively affect society, families and, of course, the people who use them. Faced with the state`s inability to respond to the fight against drug trafficking, the government proposed nationalization and legalization. Exceptionally, we try to solve the problem by offering hostages to our boys. This is unacceptable. The government is opening a door in the void. We did not vote in favour of this project for the following 20 reasons: On the other hand, heavy cannabis use can cause psychosis, especially among young people. Those who smoke marijuana on a daily basis are three times more likely to experience psychotic episodes, according to a study conducted at the European level in 2020. Among the arguments in favor of legalizing marijuana are people who give examples of countries where recreational use is allowed. Some brain regions are more sensitive to the long-term effects of marijuana than others, and this negative effect on brain connectivity is more pronounced when initiated in adolescence or early adulthood, which may help explain the finding of a link between frequent marijuana use and a significant drop in IQ. The vulnerability of the adolescent is neurobiological, psychological and social.
A cohort of adolescents under 17 years of age using daily or without marijuana use, observed and compared up to age 30 (n = 2537 compared to n = 3765), found a lower probability of obtaining a high school and college diploma, a high probability of marijuana dependence and subsequent use of illicit substances, and a higher likelihood of suicide attempts among the consumer group.6 For this reason, it is of utmost importance that laws prevent young people from buying marijuana. In addition, we must do everything we can to prevent them from consuming or being exposed to it. In Chile, a major controversy was sparked by the initiative to legalize “the medical, recreational and sacramental use of marijuana and other plant species and fungi with psychoactive effects.” It is no coincidence that the national medical-scientific community opposed it. In Chile, personal consumption is not punished (Law 20,000, 2005), as is the case in many parts of the world, making it difficult to understand efforts to further liberalize its use.
