Jim Brady This November, Californians will once again be called upon to vote on a potentially nation-changing piece of state legislation: the legalization of medicinal marijuana. And our country will anxiously await the results. While not the first state to seek this legalization, this vote has the potential to forever alter the future of our country for the worse. That’s right, medicinal marijuana should not be legalized. I understand the medical benefits from legalizing this drug, as well as the economic relief that such a bill could offer; yet I believe there is a larger discussion to be had before voting. Dangerous effects of such a legalization would result in the direct increase of stoned individuals getting behind the wheel of an automobile. Yet, for anyone deemed to be under suspicion for driving as such, there remains no on-the-spot test to be offered by law enforcement.
