The purpose of this petition is to help legalize marijuana in the state of Louisiana. Since 2012 states has begun legalizing marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes.So far only 8 states have accepted both purposes in there system.30 states chose to only accept it for medicinal purposes.In 2015 Louisiana legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes yet wouldn't for recreational purposes. This choice is absolutely absurd due to the fact that alcohol has been legal since 1933 and is the forth leading cause of preventable death. Excessive alcohol led to 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost each year on the U.S from 2006-2010.In 2014 alcohol impaired driving fatalities accounted for 9,967 deaths. From 1933-2017 we have never heard of any man or woman to overdose or die from marijuana use.At 21 we are able to purchase and indulge in alcohol whenever we please. And what do we use it for? An aid to cure our depression and internal emotions or just to party.In doing this it does except cause violence and gives you no control over your body. It also make you think irrational and make unwise decisions.Marijuana on the other hand is a thinking enzyme. It relaxes your mind and help you notice everything. It also help you get over petty stress, depression, and relieves anxiety.Using marijuana for recreational would be the perfect way to claim your nerves resulting in less Street violence in Louisiana. Especially in problem cities like Baton Rouge and New Orleans.Legalizing marijuana in Louisiana with the same rules as alcohol (21 or older to buy. No smoking and driving) would only cause less deaths and more people to work and go home to nice relaxation and creative thinking. Unless they just want us to legally kill ourselves because we don't have a safer alternative.At least that's what I'm seeing.
