CANNA-FACTS | Why Marijuana Should be Legal?

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:

  • Stop terrorists from smuggling it into the USA.
  • Give us another option to cutting down millions of trees every year to make paper products, that could be produced even better using hemp.
  • Hemp has thousands of uses that we are unable to exploit because of its illegal status.

Did you know?

  • During WWII hemp was used for the rigging on parachutes, as well as for rope and material for uniforms.
  • Marijuana is commonly used to relieve pain and some of the negative side effects of cancer treatments and old age.
  • Marijuana has been proven to slow down the spreading of Alzheimer’s, relieve the pressure behind the eyes from glaucoma. It also helps relieve migraine headaches and the side effect of cancer treatment.

Until the United States realizes how much money can be made from legalizing it, it will remain illegal.

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.
