Still, how come marijuana is forbidden for use and other dangerous prescribed drugs are not?
As with any other important subject, marijuana legalization also comes with many pros and cons, the biggest con being the negative impact this drug has on the health of people.
Many legal things are a much more common cause of death than marijuana.
It is actually estimated that 38,329 people died from drug overdose in 2010, out of which 60% were related to prescribed drugs.
Aside from helping us save money, some say that legalization of marijuana can actually make an upwards of $7 billions!
The legalization is not only predicted to do this, but will actually create a taxable industry and create thousands new legit job positions.
The second reason why marijuana should be legal is the cost.
According to official estimates, over 700,000 people were arrested 2014 for marijuana offenses and this is only on the area of the United States.
According to this belief, smoking any substance can have a bad effect on the IQ, memory, problem-solving skills and increase the chances of mental illnesses.
However, there are very few facts that confirm the latest claim.
