Legalization and Taxation of Marijuana
Every thirty-eight seconds, another person is arrested for marijuana type purposes. Most fail to see that this plant has many capabilities besides getting one high. In the past, humanity has used the hemp plant for paper, ethanol, and rope.. But because of big corporations in the early twenties, hemp was illegalized to save the profit being made from oil and trees.
If we were to use this plant once again, no doubt would it reduce our carbon footprint, as it is a fast growing plant, and we could easily mass-produce it, increasing our possible profit margins by a decent amount.
Now, if we were to go the whole ten yards, and legalize it and tax it, we could be looking at nearly 700 million dollars in revenue every year, -just- from marijuana sales.
Now, of course there would have to be an age limit on such a thing, and it could easily be set to 19.
Marijuana has proven to slow the growth of cancer cells, and helps cure glaucoma.
Think about it. One day, we could live off an environment that was completely green!
