The topic of legalizing marijuana is a very controversial issue in American politics today. Marijuana has been vilified in America for over 70 years. Despite it’s many practical uses, medicinal and industrial, our Federal government insists on maintaining the status quo that the growth, possession and use of marijuana is criminal despite the evidence that the legalization of marijuana would have a positive influence on America. The illegality of marijuana has hurt society more than it has helped, legalization would benefit America both economically and medically. Twenty years ago, only 16% of the public said the use of marijuana should be legal and 81% said it should not be legal.
The Prosperous Legalization The use of marijuana in America is often negatively regarded as a foolish activity for the reason that Americans only tend to observe the improper uses of marijuana. It is very important for our constituents to note that the legalization can bring prosperity to America. In the interest of salvaging America’s degraded economy, the legalization inherits the capacity to solve the nation’s economic issues, introduce new job opportunities to our nation’s workforce, and discover new medicinal treatments for malignant illnesses. Despite anyone’s opinions on marijuana one solid fact is undeniable, legal marijuana is vested with the power to solve our country’s depraved economic issues. Once regulated, marijuana can start putting big figures in the industry’s appraisal.
