Legalization Of recreational Marijuana in Florida

1,192 Signatures Goal: 5,000,000

With Colorado and Washington both Legalizing recreational use of Marijuana: Florida could expect to see an estimate between 250 - 600 million dollars in tax revenue. Florida could also see anywhere between 30 to 75 million dollars in tax savings. With Florida being a major tourist destination: tourists may want to take part in buying marijuana at various "shops" where they can purchase, and consume. Therefore boosting the states economy. With Florida Prisons Florida could expect to see anywhere between 500 million to 2 billion dollars in savings for prosecuting the plants legalization. The prohibition of marijuana costs tax payers an estimated 42 billion dollars annually. In California alone: marijuana growers account for 14 billion in sales. Florida could easily double that, while putting a consumption tax on the drug (like cigarettes).While the marijuana industry accumulates 36 billion a year in the selling of it illegally: people could expect to see that number double if it were legalized. Bloomberg estimates also that marijuana legalization could be a 45 to 100 Billion dollar market. therefore boosting local economies. where the extra revenue can be used to create more jobs, provide government assistance to those in need, housing assistance, and medicare to the elderly in need.
