Georgians vs. drugs2013-05-16 19:27
Is the legalization of marijuana in Georgia possible? This idea has both supporters and opponents. Supporters are planning to hold a rally demanding the decriminalization of marijuana. But the vast majority of the population of Georgia believes that in a country with a great number of other problems the legalization of marijuana will increase its consumption and increase the number of other crimes committed under the influence of drugs.
"When I just got married I had no idea that my husband was engaged in "it," says Marina. "One day he brought home a plant in a jar, he told me to water it every day and taking care. So I took care of this "flower," wiping leaves and watering. Once, I remember, I went to the store while my husband was watching TV. My daughter was 2-year-old. Returning with bags from the store I saw Lenka and eating the flower. My husband was in the other room watching a movie. I told him: "Why can't you look after a child for 10 minutes?" And he said: "What happened?" I showed him that our daughter had a lunch of his favorite plant. He started shouting: "What have you done, do you know what you have spoiled? "He grabbed the flower and took it to my room, and I felt that at that moment he hated everyone
and everything in the world, especially my daughter and me. He even did not think that my 2-year-old child could get poisoned or choke. Just a few days later, when I told his closest friend this story, she told me: "You are stupid, don't you know what hemp is?" I shook my head. And she told me what that "flower" growing in our apartment all the time was."
Recently, in Georgia the people again started talking about the need for exemption from criminal liability for the use of marijuana. In the social network Facebook there are even multiple pages with the requirement of legalization or decriminalization of marijuana. There is also a view that in the case of use of marijuana criminal penalties should be abolished.
Supporters of this approach have several arguments. According to them, marijuana is not addictive, as, for example, other drugs and alcohol. It doesn't cause death, as alcohol. For example, only in the U.S. for one year the diseases caused by alcohol resulted in death of 20,000 people, and the use of marijuana - not a single. The legalization of marijuana can and will increase number of consumers, but only initially. Marijuana can cause a decrease in efficiency, but it happens for many other reasons.
