Mary Jane Medical Marijuana
It has been a debated topic over the past decades and maybe even centuries if marijuana should be legalized. A lot of uses have emerged through the years showing what good this weed can do, but there have been conservative people who have hotly and vehemently protested against its use, more so its legalization. Even large corporations followed suit and cried out against its legalization. Why? We could only speculate that they could be blocking its legalization as they feel threatened. Pharmaceutical companies in particular feel threatened for potential loss of sales. We are talking about millions even billions of dollars at stake if cannabis is legalized. Pharmaceutical drugs such as antidepressants and pain relievers may see drops in sales in this happens. And once this happens, Mary Jane Medical Marijuana would win its initial battle.
Having said all the above, let’s look closely at our position and why weed should be legalized. Here are some reasons.
Reduces use of Pharmaceutical Medication
The use of medical cannabis has fewer side effects as compared to that of painkillers. Further, painkilling opioids such as morphine and oxycodone can be habit-forming and could be threatening if used wrongly. Potential overdose of opioids may occur if the suggested doses are not followed, especially for those getting addicted to it as there is the tendency to overuse it. With marijuana, there have been no real incidents attributing weed to overdosing.
Travel Freely with Marijuana
It certainly would be too stressful for a cannabis patient to travel to a state where medical weed is legal to get his supply. This is because, along the way, he will be passing states that do not allow the possession of marijuana at all, even if you are a certified cannabis patient. The Anxiety this creates while traveling to these states with hidden weed in your bag is way off the top! Thus legalizing cannabis is very advantageous to all traveling cannabis patients.
Medical Marijuana is safer to use than Alcohol and Prescription Drugs
It is a fact that Alcohol and prescription drug-related deaths outnumber the death toll from medical cannabis use. Alcohol and Prescription drug related deaths number a total of 200,000 each year in the US alone. For marijuana, it will not kill you, and for someone to overdose with marijuana, it is almost impossible to consume the amount needed for an individual to overdose.
Legalizing Marijuana Could Save your Kid
More than 25 Million people use marijuana every year. A big chunk of these users are teenagers and younger adults. Most of the time, marijuana is purchased illegally from shady dealers. And these dealers not only bring weed with them, but they also have a host of other illegal drugs in their undercoats, thus exposing your kid to the harmful more dangerous drugs. Legalizing marijuana will not stop the proliferation of illegal drugs but it will minimize the younger generations’ exposure to them.
Taxing Legal Cannabis will be helpful to the Community
Being a legal consumable product, cannabis will have to be taxed, this means this will bring in more revenue for the community. Not only will the weed be taxed, but the legal dispensaries and its delivery services, probably the courier services if ordered online, and a whole lot of other taxable opportunities. The added revenues from these taxes could help the community with welfare and community projects which are beneficial to the residents. Thus, legalizing weed will be a revenue generator for the community.
There could a few more reasons worth mentioning but to cut this short, let us show you a few other valid reasons which are helpful to the whole community
- Court costs are lowered
- Population in jails and prison will be lessened
- Hemp has many useful products such as fabric, rope, and even animal beddings
- Marijuana is used for health purposes
With the above facts, it now can be said that medical marijuana will do more good than harm. The community will benefit largely economically and socially. A peaceful and safe environment will exist if medical marijuana will be legalized.
