The Good and Bad of Marijuana

In my personal opinion I don't believe that marijuana should be legalized. Reason being it is not being used for the right purposes by those who use it.
On the other hand,Did you know that persons who use marijuana are more active when it comes on to sex?
Not speaking from experience though, this is what I heard from persons who use to use it :-)
On the contrary, there are potentially many negative effects to the user.
Some of the short-term effects of marijuana can include problems with memory and learning, distorted perception, difficulty in thinking and problem solving, loss of coordination and increased heart rate.
Research findings on long-term marijuana abuse indicate some changes in the brain, similar to those seen after long-term abuse of other major drugs.
For example, cannabinoid (THC or synthetic forms of THC) withdrawal in chronically exposed animals leads to an increase in the activation of the stress-response system and changes in the activity of nerve cells containing dopamine.
