INFOGRAPHIC: Legalizing Marijuana is the Best Thing for America

 by lucy

Currently, the DEA and some federal officials are working diligently to stop both medical medical and recreational marijuana through raids, busts, and legislation.  However, this is both counter intuitive to the wishes of the majority of Americans and potentially harmful to the economic and social development of America as a nation.

Should marijuana be legalized, the country stands to see drastic decreases in crime and increases in revenues which could be put toward decreasing state and nationwide debt.  It has been estimated that marijuana legalization in the US could bring in over $20 billion for the nation’s economy.

The following infographic demonstrates some of the financial and social changes that could come about were marijuana legalized.

    The government can't control something that someone can be self reliant with. It will never be legal.

    What a great short info-graphic that every american should take notice. It's actually sad to see this that America the so called free country wastes this much time and money on such a dumb thing. The economy could get so much better if we legalized this miracle plant.

    Big pharma is trying to, or already has, patented marijuana extractions and plans to sell them as medicine. They don't want people to be able to grow or buy marijuana because they can't do anything to it that you can't. Home made medicine scares them shitless. Trouble is convincing Congress takes a lot of money, and they use the DEA, IRS and cops to make sure you can't make that money selling marijuana. Our government is bought and paid for by the anti-marijuana industry. Until we become the politicians, it will not be legal.
