Cannabis legalization could stop the economic crisis


Supporters of legal marijuana from California argue that legalizing cannabis could end the state of deep economic crisis we are passing. The amount of fees collected could reach 1.5 billion dollars, money that would be extremely important for the administration led by Arnold Schwarzenegger, with a current deficit of several billion dollars.
Oakland is the first city in California that has legalized the so-called medical use of cannabis, under the incidence of certain rules. Cops do not agree with this law and say that the evil created is more important than the money raised from taxing the drug, because marijuana could be a gateway to stronger drugs.
A referendum will be held next year to decide if “weed” should be legalized or not. It is clear that cigarette manufacturers are in the block-starts and look forward to an affirmative answer.
