Beliefs and Values

MArijuana Art 2

“A value is a measure of the worth or importance a person attaches to something; our values are often reflected in the way we live our lives… An attitude is the way a person expresses or applies their beliefs and values, and is expressed through words and behavior.”

Your personal beliefs and values are shaped by family, friends, school, church, your community, and influence how we view the world around us. Beliefs develop from learned cultural and environmental experiences. Values are shaped by our beliefs and are the principles that guide our judgments and how we live our lives. We have a number of values systems regarding, marriage, religion, race, sex, drugs, and the list goes on. And we try to use our best judgment by weighing the pros and cons of a particular situation.

In recent years, arguments have revolved around the legalization of Cannabis. Do the pros of legalizing marijuana outweigh the cons? Is there any harm to society in legalizing this drug? How does your belief and value system influence your decision about this societal dilemma?

Check out my fellow columnists’ opinions on this controversial topic on Conscious Talk Magazine.
