Marijuana is a drug that is always being talked about globally, even though the media. There is a constant debate on whether it should be legalized or not. Although debating about weed being legalized, there have been studies on how to make weed work in the economy. All these questions are things the government talks about daily. There is a big divide between people that believe weed should be legal no matter what. Some people also think that it should stay illegal. Some think there should be some changes to the use of weed. When you look at the benefits, there is no question that marijuana should be legal throughout the entire country, but there are more positive things that could come out of it is legal than illegal.
Weed should be legal because It helps with a lot of diseases, it helps to keep kids off the streets, and weed sales can help the money situation by giving back taxes to the people. The health and comfort of the people should be the major concern for the government. Marijuana has many positive ways that could help people with their everyday life. There are many Americans that are suffering from some problems that could be fixed by using this drug. Marijuana could be used to help with pain, nausea, Alzheimer’s, etc.; and other symptoms that normal drugs just simply can’t cure.
Also, it could be a great way to allow people to relax on a normal basis. For most parts, the symptoms of marijuana are very mild and can be easy to deal with. Not very often people can controllable a state from the danger of using this drug. Marijuana is a drug that easily builds tolerance and allows people to handle the symptoms better. If people can handle the side effects of using the drug properly, then I don’t understand why it shouldn’t be legalized in the first place. Many Americans will tell you all the negative stuff about marijuana, but no one ever sat down and talk about the positive ones. Today, medical marijuana is used to treat several symptoms caused by diseases or by the drugs used to treat them. Medical marijuana can be used to treat patients with common illnesses such as cancer, aids, and multiple sclerosis. San Francisco General Hospital conducted a study on aids patients using medical marijuana and patients using medical marijuana were better off because the patients using medical marijuana were twice healthier than the ones that didn’t use it.
The next reason marijuana should be legalized is because it would keep kids off the streets and away from drugs that are way more harmful than weed. Marijuana in many cases could be sold from dealers on the street corner who is also selling hard drugs like crack or cocaine. Therefore, if marijuana was legal and sold in a store the correct way, kids would stay away from the other drugs that dealers have to offer them. Also, it would stop kids from getting into the drug dealing with business. They would have fewer motives to want to sell to their friends and other people to make money. If the policy was to change and it could be sold in stores and kids would have no way of getting the product for selling so there will be no way for kids to get a hold of it and selling will stop altogether. Being a dealer would be way less effective because most of it sells come from weed buyers if weed buyers stop buying from them, then they can’t introduce other harmful drugs to them, so many drug dealers will stop selling and the streets will start to clean themselves up. Marijuana is going to be sold, either way, So, it might as well be sold legally. If the law was to change and is sold legally it would keep kids staying out of danger and stop a lot of kids from getting killed.
Another reason marijuana should be legal is that with the extra tax money the state will be able to hire teachers that want to teach the kids and make them see there is more to life the selling drug and gives them a positive outlook on life. Most people then will have a good job, so they won’t lead in going down a path of need to sell drugs to kids. Another very good reason to legalize marijuana is how much it could save our government with their money problems, and maybe even make money out of it to give back to taxpayers. Marijuana is very hard on our justice system financially. If the law was to change and weed was to become legalized it could be taxed and used for government funding. It has been studied and many studies showings how weed could create very well revenue for taxpayers. Not, only can legalizing marijuana help with our money problems, but it can also help the court system. There are over 750,000 people arrested for having marijuana. This number is large, and for what selling something that can help this world instead of bringing it down. 750,000 people are arrested for something that the world could make millions from. Also, not, only does enforcement have to arrest these people, but as taxpayers, we still have to pay in each case. Another way it could help out the court system is by opening up jail spots for people that deserve to be in jail.
All in all, legalizing marijuana could help out the court system in so many ways, and we should change this law immediately. In addition to cannabis being legalized, it would help regulate taxes like any other commercial good, it would bring in huge amounts of money to the federal government. It’s estimated that the tax revenue will generate greatly from the medical marijuana it would be up to $2.4 billion annually if it were taxed like every other good, and the higher it is up to $6.2 billion annually if it were taxed like alcohol and tobacco. All in all, marijuana should be legalized, and the policy should be changed immediately. There is too much good that comes from this law change not to do it at all. Some so many people agree this law needs to be changed and the government needs to be on the same page with us. Marijuana can help make this country better for many people that can’t help out in many ways. Health is one of the major concerns for the government and with that said they shouldn’t hesitate in saying yes to making weed legalize it. But, from what studies show few health risks come from smoking weed and even more positives health factors that weed could give to this world. Also, how much legal marijuana could help out our government funding problems and the court system is there another reason, the policy needs to be changed now. Keeping kids off the streets and drug dealers from selling to kids are also more proof of how bad our current policy is.
Legal marijuana could help stop hard drugs from spreading to the wrong people and getting into the wrong hands. Also, it will keep the number of drug dealers down and the number of legal shops up by also providing more jobs to people that need them. All in all, marijuana would do many more positives to the country than it would negative if it were to be legalized. The law prevents the legalization of marijuana must be changed by now. Legal marijuana can be a great help and a better benefit to others. The government needs to see these facts and know what good it could be so would you stand with me and makes these changes possible?
