Marijuana law has come a long way in the past few years. We now have 28 states where marijuana is legal, and more facing pressure to legalize all the time.
It is about time that marijuana is recognized for it’s many benefits. Of course, it is not for everyone. Many people’s lives will not benefit from marijuana use, and it many cases it can be a detriment to happiness and productivity. However, this should not be left up to the state to decide, especially when it is less harmful than other legal drugs, and when it can be taxed and make a massive profit for the state.
As more conservative politicians retire and the younger, more liberal generation makes up more and more of the population, it is inevitable that the entirety of the United States, and many other countries, will legalize pot. It is just a matter of waiting a few more decades. Incredible progress has been made already, however, and it is an exciting time to be part of the Culture!
