CANNA-FACTS | Why Marijuana Should be Legal?
, updated on Canna-Facts
First off, let’s think… why is Marijuana illegal? In the 1930′s William Randolph Hearst, who had significant financial interests in the timber industry testified to congress on the evils of marijuana, saying things like it make people insane and commit acts of cannibalism. At this time very few people were even aware of what marijuana was, so to stop people from going insane Congress decided to make it illegal.
The truth is many paper manufacturers were thinking of changing from using trees to make paper to using hemp because it was cheaper, easier to grow and better for the environment. If that were to happen, Hearst could potentially lose millions. Instead of letting this happen he used his influence and testimony to help get marijuana banned in the USA.
So now that we understand the ulterior motives behind the criminalization of marijuana, we should be able to come to the realization that making it legal in the United States would:
Did you know?
This is much like the situation with online casinos in the USA. America was sending billions of dollars out of the country and the government needed to do something to keep the money here, so they banned Online Casino and just like online casinos and online gambling I believe one day the government will learn to take advantage of these things instead of just banning them.
Eventually the USA will realize that the best way to stop the flow of money out of the country is not to ban marijuana or online casinos, but to enter the market and compete.
If the USA did what Amsterdam has done the government would make not only billions in Taxes from the sales of Marijuana, but the economy would boom from all the tourism that it would bring in from all over the world.
The truth of the matter is that legalization is inevitable. The attitude of people has changed so drastically over the last 30 years, that eventually when the younger generations start to take over marijuana will eventually become legal because they understand the truth. What is that truth? That banning something only makes the market for it stronger. We can only hope that one day the government will learn to take advantage of these things, instead of simply banning them.
