Assignment 3 – Report about the Legalization of Marijuana
In April 2017, the Canadian government made an act that tried to legalize the
marijuana, and this act had passed in the following year in October. Which makes the
Canada becomes the second country after Uruguay to legalize recreational marijuana.
This means that Canada’s legislation allows it to create a large market for marijuana
throughout the country and to sell recreational marijuana legally. There is no doubt
that marijuana is a kind of drug. In many countries around the world, attitudes
towards marijuana are prohibited in both medical and recreational aspects. Such as
most of Asia counties, China, Japan, Singapore and so on. However, under this
situation, why can Canada pass laws to legalize marijuana in Canada? According to

of marijuana in Canada: 1) The harm of marijuana, 2) the medical effects of
marijuana, 3) Whether the legalization of marijuana can reduce unnecessary public
resources? 4) The influences of marijuana legalization on teenagers and 5) the results

the drug for both medical use and recreational use. However, in the most countries in
the Americas, recreational marijuana is illegal, while medical marijuana is legal in
most countries to use. This means that most of people in America’s countries have
accepted or got used to use marijuana to treat their diseases, which includes Canada.
Also, that is one of the reasons why it has been so quick to legalize marijuana within
Canada. But, even if marijuana is legalized in Canada, that doesn’t mean it is safe to
use. According to the research from German Association for Psychiatry,
Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics (DGPPN), which indicates that “one in ten
marijuana users has a treatment-dependent addiction. And marijuana use is the major
reason of intoxication in drug-treated addiction.” (Reinecke, 2016, 3) And, according
