If marijuana were to be viewed from a philosophical point of view, it could be stated that individuals deserve the right to make choices for themselves. According to Rosenthal and Kubby (1996), The government only has the right to limit those choices if the individuals actions endanger someone else (p. 88). Furthermore, it could be stated that marijuana is far less dangerous than some drugs which are legal, such as alcohol and tobacco (Rosenthal, & Kubby, 1996). It could be implied that individuals should have the right to use marijuana if they want to and not let the government tell individuals what to do as long as their individual marijuana use does not harm others. No other law is both enforced so widely and harshly and yet deemed unnecessary by such a substantial portion of the populace (Nadelman, 2004, p. 28). Another factor that should be analyzed, why marijuana should be legal, is that it would save the government lots of money. According to Nadelmann (2004), in an article published in the National Review, police make about 700,000 arrest per year for marijuana offences, and enforcing marijuana laws costs and estimated 10-15 billions of dol
