After the legal sale of marijuana, not only can tax increase be increased, but also the employment rate can be increased. Legal cannabis factories produce sesame oil, sesame oil and the like (concentrated cannabis oil products without any taste).
Can also effectively prevent minors from exposure to marijuana, because marijuana is harmful to undeveloped brains.

In some counties that there are good possibilities that happened when they legalized the marijuana but not all the countries in the whole world. Why? Because its community some of them they abuse using marijuana. They using it a drugs and some them are minors.

Marijuana is illegal in my country, how come minors are still able to abuse it? It is a matter of choice of the person himself/herself if they are going to abuse marijuana be it illegal or legal. I think the only thing that changes when it becomes legal is the economy of it. It's actually a lot cheaper while it's illegal because once you've made that legal, people will be selling it everywhere and people will all be buying it. The supply wouldn't last and at some point, stores will be left nothing but high quality weed which is a lot more expensive than the usual ones. Funny how people be thinking that they can abuse drugs once it has become legal. The truth tho, it will be a lot more expensive.

Nonetheless, this will increase the overall collected tax. It's good for the economy of a country. People have another thing to consume and get addicted to just like beers, liquors, and cigarettes. Add a sin tax to that then bam! in a couple of years, the economy is booming. FYI, though, there wouldn't be as much casualties if people do get hooked on weed because it doesn't make you do bad things. It helps you relax.

The legalization of marijuana has brought in millions (maybe billions?) in tax revenue to those states that have allowed it. Just imagine what each state and even the federal government could do with such extra money. Rather than wasting millions in tax money on a fight that can't be won ,right??

Or maybe you guys got another opinions??

Canada has legalized it on a national level and reached a revenue sharing agreement with their provinces to split the tax revenue. Because of this, there has been an explosion of investment in the industry there and Canada will soon lead the world in this industry. Such a policy is creating new jobs and the legalization will free police and courts from enforcing or otherwise dealing with pointless and harmless violations. Republicans in this country are far too concerned with legislating morality (and doing a poor job at it for having stupid and arbitrary priorities) for the US to seriously consider following in Canada's footsteps and so is ceding the development of an emerging industry to other nations.

Legalization of marijuana not only saves the money of the government by fighting it, it also made money by opening new jobs, new businesses and such. I know people use marijuana as a recreational drug, but if the government is able to regulate it and be strict about it then it will not be abused (not that it's addictive, or so I've been told).

for a country that takes taxes on marijuana, can be profitable. but for users and addicts, it is a big loss. because we know that marijuana is very expensive. and marijuana if in excessive consumption is also not good for health.

War has never been meaningless for governments because they know this is the best way to become more prominent and have a say in the world. In particular, the war would be a gold mine because the government could sell weapons for a fight at a high price.
I could not agree more with you. The war on drugs is a business, some people are profiting a lot with it, and that's only the major reason that we won't see legalization in some places at least for a long time.

Yes, maybe legalization of marijuana might bring million of tax that can be used by the government in the nation building.  But how about if the people became addicted to it and the tax that the government will collect will just proceed to the rehabilitation of the addict.

 Legalizing marijuana might help many patients as well with an exceptional medical condition to ease their sufferings. So, it is a good basis for legalization. But I guess the government should look for the wider picture of this topic.  If this will gonna implemented by the government, strict rules and regulation must be formulated, observed and implemented.

I think he was referring to the lost "war on drugs" that the US has been fighting for decades now, not that I would expect you to read this reply or understand it if you did.

Regardless of whether legalization of marijuana (or any other drug) would be good for the economy, I support people's freedom to ingest whatever chemicals they wish to--with restrictions like alcohol has.  I most definitely see the drawbacks of substance use/abuse, but the crime that has been manufactured because of drugs being illegal has harmed society more so than if they were legal.  Anyone seen any of those Mexican cartel torture videos?  That shit is brutal and is a direct result of US drug policies, and Mexico's as well.

As to economic effects, it certainly couldn't hurt.  I have a hard time believing the gain in tax revenue and jobs associated with the marijuana industry would be undone by its harm to health or society.  I think a lot of people have known that for a long time, but trying to get a government to change its idiotic ways is very difficult.

Marijuana bole is legal, but there must be an agency that regulates the circulation of this item, because if marijuana is circulated by human who likes to criminal, it will be an extraordinary social problem
I am also monitoring the progress of this regulation, since the legalization of this marijuana

legalize marijuana can indeed give a very big profit for a country, but will be many negative things that will happen in the country, maybe criminality will increase also because of the effect caused by consuming marijuana.
so the government must still limit and keep monitoring the circulation and consumption of marijuana in order to avoid something that is not in want.

I think if we would speak on the in terms of the community and economic positiveness, maybe it is it. But I'm concerned about the health of the people who gets an actual right to smoke.

 I'm not supporting the legalization of marijuana, but I can say that bitcoin and blockchain would be very useful for the country government, if they would be able to handle and regulate it.

Some people says that marijuana is good for our health and if it's really true then it's ok to make it legal. But many people can abuse using this if it will become a legal and I think that's not good because excessive marijuana use is not good in our health and maybe that is the reason why in other country marijuana is not legal.

We know what are the positive and negative effects. Marijuana in some countries are legal. We know how marijuana affects our own economy, but there are positive effects also. We know what will be the cause and effect of legalizing drugs.

Only drug addict are favor on this one,not because government will gain taxes on this illegal drug meaning they will accept it,no matter how much they will spend the important thing is they will continue the fight against this,and you didnt mention the damage that may cost when drug addiction becomes rampant because of legalization of this one.marijuana can be use as medicine for thos specific cases and thats the only thing this might possibly allowed by laws

I do not refuse but do not agree that marijuana is legalized.

In my opinion it can damage the order of life that has been running because children from childhood are familiar with the cannabis environment, regardless of consuming or not. They can also be couriers or sellers with big profits making it forget the danger for everyone. Because they are forbidden to remain brave, let alone legalized more crazy

I completely agree with what The Pharmacist said.

Quote
I support people's freedom to ingest whatever chemicals they wish to

Even without considering whether or not legalising marijuana is really going to benefit the economy, I believe in the freedom of choice that people has when it comes to these substances. It does not cause any harm to the general community, and even if it was illegal, it's simply a futile thing to regulate as people are going to continue to cultivate and smoke the substance regardless of its legality.

Coming back to the economic impacts, there could definitely be tax revenue made from legalising marijuana, with less taxpayer money spent on trying to police the consumption of it (which is absolutely ridiculous imo). Also when you take into account that marijuana is probably less addictive than tobacco and perhaps even alcohol, it's more the reason to do it.

I disagree, I know some types of drugs can be used for certain things, but not for public consumption right?
because in my opinion, legalization means the government allows anyone to use it, I think many people will abuse it...
