Maybe artists should have to take performance enhancing drug tests like athletes. After all, we want a level playing field, and druggies get a creative edge and a planned advantage. Artists with sober minds, may not be able to keep up! Sounds silly right?

There is no denying that Marijuana has positively shaped our culture in much more ways then most would think. Marijuana brings creativity, a more relaxed feeling, and like any drug that’s over used, it will harm you.
Here’s my point: Moderate marijuana use, for the right occasion should not be an offense punishable by our government. We should not suggest citizens trick our medical system to have legal access to pot. By Society supporting all the famous, influential folks above, we have already accepted it’s use. Why keep things so grey?
It’s true that irresponsible use of Marijuana becomes an addictive, problematic drug; but if you notice, there is not a single famous death, accounted to smoking marijuana. Leave the decision to the people. Stop the marijuana civil war created by our government against it’s own people. We have much bigger pressing concerns, in which we could use the money for!
