Legalizing Marijuana

Kayla HammondLegalizing MarijuanaMarijuana comes from the cannabis sativa plant. This psychoactive drug has the reputation for causing hallucinations, disorientations, and also feelings of exhilaration and anxiety. Aside to the fact that it helps medically it would help out the government tremendously. They could use it as a gateway to get money and d help decrease out 14 trillion dollar debt hole that we have gotten ourselves into these past few years. Last but certainly not least, it would keep the crime rate down and keep citizens out of jail alongside with that the cops that we use to catch all of these drug crimes could be used doing something else rather than busting people for marijuana. For these reasons, I believe that Marijuana should be legalized in the United States.
Medically Marijuana does so many positive things for the human body; I do not know how it has not been legalized in every single state already. It’s only legal for medical purposes in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, D.C, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington. That is only 20 out of the 50 states in this country. This same drug has been found to relieve symptoms of diseases of serious magnitude. Asthma, glaucoma, and muscle spasms are just a few. It has also been found to relieve a loss of appetite and nausea due to AIDS wasting syndrome and chemotherapy treatment. Although this drug has a bad reputation, it has become a major source of relief for many terminally ill patients, as well as people with mental disorders such as depression and Bipolar disorder. Having it be illegal in those 30 states makes it so much more difficult to get ahold of it for medical purposes because Doctors are so careful who they give it out to, and the prices for medical marijuana is off the charts. Marijuana helps the terminally ill lead better quality lives….
