Discussion Board Question
The issue of marijuana possession and consumption is increasingly becoming a struggle for policy control between the federal and states governments. Many states, including Texas, Florida, and Wisconsin abide by current federal laws, making the possession and consumption of marijuana a federal crime. However, many states such as California, New York, Arizona, and Michigan are ignoring federal law by decriminalizing marijuana possession and/or legalizing the use of medicinal marijuana. So here are the questions:
1. Should the states have the policy jurisdiction to determine marijuana laws within their territories, or should marijuana policy be solely within the jurisdiction of the federal government? Explain your reasoning.
2. Additionally, regardless of who has jurisdiction over this issue, explain your position on the consumption of marijuana, providing reasoning on why you hold the position that you do, and what impacts your position would have on society.
