I believe with all of my heart that Marijuana should be legalized in the United States of America. Marijuana is often used for medical purposes, such as a temporary solution to depression.

Living in Colorado, I have seen the effects of Marijuana firsthand. Marijuana legalization is a dangerous action, and could cause many cases of under legal age Marijuana usage, further addicting the kids of today.

Under federal law marijuana is still illegal. Colorado's taxes can be spent how the state sees fit.

missmedic, you are going back on yourself now. the money goes to a good cause, you say, yet it isn't because the banks can't take money because it violates laws. so then what good is the money going to?

This is because the banks won't take the money as violates federal law. The reason the banks do this is because marijuana is still illegal.

missmedic, the problem is that in Colorado, where is the money going? Coloradans don't know. So to say it goes to good causes doesn't work. Money from Marijuana doesn't go to the schools, which is one reason people voted for it! When people get money, they will fight over, and the money will slowly waste away or not go anywhere. that is the basic idea of greed.

When something is made illegal, the control of the something is put in the hands of the criminals. Marijuana legalization will make money. Making it illegal will cost money and lives and fill the prisons with nonviolent people. The greatest detriment to the individual and the family unit concerning marijuana use, is law enforcement.
