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.
