Marijuana Legalization Measure Introduced in Pennsylvania

Recently Senator Daylin Leach introduced Senate Bill 528, titled the Regulate Marijuana Act. If passed, the measure would legalize the possession, cultivation, transportation and retail sale of marijuana, to adults 21 and older.  Adults pennsylvania_flag_slide_showwould be authorized to grow up to six plants, three of which could be mature. In addition, the measure would make it legal for adults to give away up to one ounce to other adults.

The bill would direct the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to license and regulate the sale of marijuana through retail outlets, and directs the General Assembly to enact an excise tax on marijuana that’s either sold or transferred.

Senate Bill 528 has been referred to the Senate Law and Justice Committee.

    I heavily believe Marijuana should be legalized, not for several reasons such as:
    The Facts:
    Not only would it save us, the taxpayers, billions a year from throwing minor offenders in jail, it would actually increase the revenue the US gets each year, by taxing Marijuana. Instead of losing 3.5 Billion a year to put these minor offenders in jail, we’d gain hundreds of millions, and maybe eventually billions by taxed sales. Also, the Mexicans who make billions from the Marijuana trade wouldn’t be making nearly as much if we could grow it in our own country legally. This would also mean safer Marijuana and more studies with it to find additional benefits that Marijuana gives.
    Health: Marijuana can cure or fight cancer, help sleeplessness, aid people who are unable to eat correctly, lessen the effects of epileptic shock, increase blood flow (which, in some cases, prevents paralysis) and many more positive effects that either i am unaware of, or have not been discovered.

    I firmly believe all positive effects of marijuana HEAVILY outweigh the negative
