Question and answer
What assumptions interfered in the critical thinking process of people like Albert Einstein, Helen Keller, or Saul Kripke?
Many thinkers in society have played various contributions through their creativity. Bill Gates, a self-made person from the USA, has contributed immensely in the software development industry. [ After initiating his company, Microsoft in 1975, he has relentlessly worked to make it a multinational firm. As a result, he has earned significant amounts of profits, which have enabled the company to
provide corporate social responsibly and numerous benefits to the employees. James Cone, an advocate of the black liberation theology, has contributed to the shaping of Christianity by discouraging the disparity that existed between the whites and the blacks. Daniel C. Dennett is a philosopher from America who has made multiple contributions in the field of psychology regarding biology and cognitive science. His contributions have been immense through support of the Brights association. Peter Singer is an Australian philosopher with specialization in applied ethics. His perspective of handling ethical matters on material, predilection, and functionality has contributed to the improvement of humanity. Jean-Paul Sartre was a French philosopher who contributed to the political activism and criticism. In this regard, he influenced sociology, critical studies, and literary education. Nelson Mandela was the former president of South Africa who despite his detainment during the struggle for independence never created any rift among the whites and the blacks. In addition, he advocated for reconciliation through the introduction of policies that mitigated poverty and inequality. Albert Einstein, in his efforts of creativity in the field of physics, experienced multiple challenges. The assumptions he made while undertaking his role as a physicist entails the effects of war and pacifism. In this regard, he put a lot of effort to ensure that all his undertakings were peace oriented and affected people’s life positively. Due to the fear of the anticipated dictatorship of Hitler, he immigrated to the USA, where he made multiple contributions in the field of science. ]

What is the best decision for the legalization of marijuana?
Weegy: There is no question that if marijuana were any other drug, decisions about its medical use would be up to doctors and patients. Instead, today, the politics of the drug war intervene. [ Patients and doctors who get involved with medical marijuana face potentially grave risks. And government seems committed to maximizing the fear and uncertainty faced by those who might benefit using it. It need not be this way. Scientific and medical texts going back thousands of years point to medicinal properties for marijuana. Modern scientific studies, including six sponsored by U.S. states in the 1970s and 1980s, demonstrate that smoked marijuana reduces nausea and reduces pain for many patients, especially those facing cancer chemotherapy and glaucoma. More to the point, thousands of patients and their families and doctors have experienced and witnessed the medical benefits of marijuana. They have told others. They have testified at public hearings and appeared in the mass media. They have contributed to books and research studies on the drug. The phenomenon is real. ............. ] (More)

What is the best decision for the legalization of marijuana?
Weegy: With legalization, the marijuana production sector would shrivel in terms of revenues and employment even if consumption increased. [ If legalization were to triple and the number of users and the quantity per user remained the same, all of the resulting demand could be satisfied by less than 30,000 acres of farmland—about three dozen mid-sized farms. Contrast that with the 75 million acres of American soil planted in soybeans. Whatever else nationwide marijuana legalization would do, it wouldn’t create a big production industry or have much effect on the farming sector overall; the logic of mass commodity agricultural production is relentless. Indeed, specialty strains (the equivalent of organic vegetables) and “bundled products” (such as marijuana-infused beer and brownies) would probably become a bigger industry than primary production. Legalization would create more unemployment than it would legitimate jobs for those who are now producing and trafficking illegally. The trade-off of abuse vs. illicit markets applies to all drugs, but each drug has its own special characteristics. For marijuana, three are most important. Marijuana is by far the most widely used illegal drug in the United States. Marijuana markets are not associated with much crime or violence and account for only a small share of incarceration for drug offenses. Compulsive marijuana use is less debilitating than is compulsive use of heroin, cocaine or alcohol. - See more at: ] (More)

What is the solution for legalizing marijuana?
Weegy: The problem though with that system of decriminalization is that you still have all the attendant problems that come along with prohibition. Without a legal method of sale and distribution people will still be forced to buy it from the black market. [ It will still be a chaotic, underground, unregulated, untaxed market controlled in many cases by street thugs, criminal gangs and large cartels. Plus, the state will be deprived of potentially 200 million dollars a year in potential tax revenue, That's not peanuts, that over 2 billion dollars a decade. Not to mention 3 1/2 billion dollars in law enforcement savings over that same decade. Add to that the tens of thousands of jobs created and growth in all sorts of related industry, such as indoor garden supplies, etc. A legal, taxed, and regulated market will always be superior to an illegal market. It won't be perfect but whatever problems arise from the use of cannabis socially can be best solved under re-legalization than prohibition. Basically, responsible users will be left alone. Those who act irresponsibly, criminally or dangerously will be penalized according to the severity of the crime. Those who chronically abuse it and want help... ] (More)
