Marijuana use is extremely prevalent in todays society, and factions have long debated whether it is helpful, harmful, or both. With the legalization of marijuana in some states, this debate is more heated than ever, making it crucial to give young adults as much information as possible. This volume presents readers with both sides of the issue, encouraging them to think critically about whether or not marijuana should be legalized nationally.
