Why you may ask Independent studies have shown that Marijuana is less addictive than tobacco if addictive at all. There has never been a death contributed to an over-dose of marijuana either. Many states have made medicinal (by prescription) use legal. Now why is that Its more than a treatment for just glaucoma. Independent studies show it can help treat Asthma, Arthritis, Alzheimer's, A.D.D., Depression, even some Breast, Brain and Lung cancers among many other things. It can also promote the growth of Neurons in the brain. The list just keeps going. The legalization of Marijuana would boost the economy. Making many new jobs all over. Taxing the substance would also bring in funds for the state and federal governments. Along with that, crime rates all over will fall. People take medicines all the time which have a long list of side effects, some worse than the current condition, some even life threatening. If all Marijuana does is give u the "munchies" and sometimes a state of paranoia, wouldn't it be a better option In all, think about it.
