There are so many reasons why cannabis and its products should be legalized, and it goes beyond making music sound great and making the pizza taste better. The reasons goes deeper than these. Recreational marijuana is now legal in many states and countries, and many people are hoping that the others follow suit.

We are now seeing experts speaking out in favor of the idea of legalization, hoping that this will push other places to relax their anti-drug laws. Below are some of the most persuasive reasons why experts believe that it is time to legalize cannabis.

  1. Cannabis is safer than alcohol. Marijuana might just be one of the safest drugs today, after a study showed that it is 114 times less deadly than alcohol. This report studied the effects of alcohol, cocaine, ecstacy, heroin, crystal meth, tobacco and cannabis.
  2. Legalizing cannabis will not lead to an epidemic on crime. Some people believe that it will, but places in places where marijuana is legal, no epidemic of crime was noted at all. In fact, crimes in this places have fallen by 15 percent, with murder crimes dropping to 50 percent.
  3. Cannabis can kill cancer cells.Studies from the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) have proven that marijuana can kill cancer cells, and shrink serious types of brain tumors.
  4. Cannabis is less addicting than coffee. Experts believe that the addictive effects of coffee means it can be harmful than weed. Caffeine ticks off the same number of boxes as for drug abuse as THC, which is the active ingredient in marijuana.
  5. Legalizing cannabis can improve the economy. If cannabis is legalized, a significant amount can be raised annually in taxes. Places where weed is legal have seen an increase in their tax revenues.
  6. Many people now believe that smoking cannabis is safe. A majority if people no longer worry that puffing marijuana will kill them. In fact, in the past decade, there has been a huge shift in public opinion.
  7. Legalizing cannabis creates jobs. In many states and countries where marijuana is legal, hundreds to thousands of jobs have been created. Today, there is about ten thousand people working in the weed industry.
  8. Legalizing cannabis does not encourage the young to use it.Despite the concerns of many naysayers, in places where weed is legal, there was a marked drop in the number of young people consuming it.
  9. Most people now support the legalization of cannabis. The people in Britain and America, in particular, now support weed being legalized, according to opinion polls. The same can be said in many other countries.
  10. Political heavyweights are going behind its legalization. Barack Obama freely admits that he smoked cannabis in his young, and has openly showed his support in the legalization of marijuana use.
  11. Some people believe that cannabis oil can cure cancer. Some cancer patients have claimed that cannabis oil cured them from cancer and other debilitating diseases, extending their life and making them feel healthier.

With all these arguments, there surely is no reason to governments to not legalize the use of cannabis, whether for recreational or medicinal purposes. Numerous studies and research have backed up the claims above, and just might be the final push to finally allow its use.

Cannabis can greatly help improve your health and wellbeing. If you are considering incorporating cannabis into your lifestyle, it is best that you consult your health care provider before doing so. Take note that cannabis can interact with some medications you might be taking, so it is best to stay on the safe side just in case.
