Dear Future President,
Medical marijuana should be legalized in all 50 states. I say this because marijuana can be helpful. Over the last two weeks I’ve done some research and discovered facts as well as real life testimonies on why medical marijuana should be legalized. I am not saying marijuana should be legalized all in all. The point I’m trying to make here is medical marijuana can be very helpful with bringing money in our country that is very much needed and “it can cure many illnesses and symptoms.” Although many people feel as if it is dangerous, I have been informed that medical marijuana is in fact, less dangerous than tobacco, which is actually legal in all of America today. Medical marijuana can be used to cure many illnesses. It is said that it is used to cure diseases like AIDS ,cancer, glaucoma, epilepsy and many others. The plant has two main cannabinoids scientists are interested in. These two cannabinoids are, THC and CBD. “THC can be used for decreasing pain, inflammation, and muscle control problems.” CBD on the other hand is used to control seizures. Scientists say it may even cure mental illnesses. For example, people with insomnia tend to use medical marijuana. “Medical marijuana is a desirable alternative to addictive drugs …” . If the plant is containing these cannabinoids that help with these illnesses, medical marijuana should be legalized.
Medical marijuana also bring in lots of money. Sources have shown that medical cannabis can bring in about $28 million dollars in taxes each year. “In Colorado, cannabis brought in about $270 million dollars in the beginning of 2016 alone.” In Washington State, they’re expected to make about $154.6 million dollars in taxes this year. In about 4 years the expected estimate is $1 billion dollars. Some people might think it could get too far, but there are ways to prevent things from getting out of hand if medical cannabis was to be legalized. For instance, if you don’t have a prescription for the marijuana, then you won’t be able to purchase it. Basically, I am writing this letter future President to inform you on the fact that medical marijuana isn’t as bad as it seems; in fact it can be helpful in many ways.
