The federal government should legalize and tax marijuana as it’s a substance no more harmful than alcohol or tobacco that would stimulate legal economic activity and reduce the strain on law enforcement resources. States should be able to regulate marijuana how they see fit without federal overreach.
Marijuana is a harmful substance that serves as a gateway to harder drugs — the federal government shouldn’t legalize it. Letting states make their own decisions about legal marijuana would be a mistake that’d be seen as a public health mistake as the impact of marijuana use becomes clearer.
