Legalize Cannabis: Reasons to Support Legalization

Cannabis legalization is sweeping the nation! On November 8th, 2016, California became the most recent state to legalize cannabis when Proposition 64 passed. With this in mind, we mustlook at how prohibition has impacted our society and what will happen now that cannabis has been legalized for recreational use.

This blog post will discuss the history of cannabis and why legalization was necessary and tips on using cannabis responsibly so you can enjoy all its benefits without suffering any of its negative side effects.

Why is legalization important?

Legalizing cannabis is one of the most important steps to take to encourage responsible consumption. By giving consumers access to legal like Mountain Annie’s Cannabis dispensaries, we are no longer allowing them to purchase their product from unregulated sources that may be growing or selling contaminated products. It’ll also make it easier for law enforcement officials and regulators to monitor sales and consumption rates and enforce any policies against underage use more easily than ever before.

Legalization for medical purposes:

Legalization would allow states with medical programs like Florida’s Amendment Two, which was voted into effect on November 08th 2016, better opportunities at providing legitimate relief that meets patients’ needs while not breaking federal laws (Garcia &Burkeland,). Finally, legalization has allowed states to collect millions of dollars in tax revenue invested into the communities.

Prevents black marketing:

Legalizing cannabis has many benefits for both users and non-users alike. By legalizing cannabis, we can reduce the risk of exposure to contaminated products while also reducing black market sales by providing consumers with access to regulated dispensaries throughout their cities.

Relief to patients

Legalization will allow hospitals like Florida’s Amendment Two, which was voted into effect on November 08th 2016, better opportunities at providing legitimate relief that meets patients’ needs while not breaking federal laws. Finally, legalization has allowed states to collect millions of dollars in tax revenue that is being invested into the communities.

Conclusion:

Not only has legalization been a huge success for those states that have done so, but it’s also time to push the issue here in America as well. With the prohibition of alcohol, we saw what happens when we ban substances, and now it’s time to stop doing that. Not only is cannabis safer than many legal items like cigarettes or prescription drugs, but it also has many benefits for those who choose to use it medicinally or recreationally.
