Is legalization of marijuana becoming a new world order?

In August, 2013, a group of youth in the central province of Kenya petitioned the government to legalize the use of marijuana in this country. The group which stated that they were fighting for their rights argued that marijuana has some medical benefits for them.

Whether that is the main reason why they are calling for the legalization of the stuff is anybody’s guess. But consumption of the drug has been known to be  for its psychoactive and physiological effects, which can include heightened mood or euphoria, relaxation, and increase in appetite. It is also known that unwanted side effects sometimes can include a decrease in short term memory, dry mouth, reddening of eyes and feeling of anxiety.

The reasons given to support legalization of the drug, said to be no more pernicious than alcohol or tobacco, and that corruption and crime associated with the drug trade can be significantly reduced by legalizing it is not enough.

It is obvious that legalizing the use of the drug will encourage many more people, especially the youth to try using it. This can increase the probability that users will turn to harder drugs.

The psychoactive and the physiological effects when the drug is consumed, and other various mental disorders are of more greater concern to the public than any other single reason.

Please say what you think about this argument I have put.
