The effects of the U.S. government’s reluctance to end the prohibition of marijuana run far and wide.
It affects the thousands of people who are still behind bars due to possession, as well as their families and friends, and it diverts the attention of our law enforcement agencies from issues that are far more significant.
Things have slightly improved over the last decade thanks to the states who have legalized weed, but there is still a long way to go before marijuana users across the nation are free to possess and use cannabis without repercussion. It’s time to come out from behind the smoke and make our voices heard.
MERRY JANE is using this 4/20 to energize our community into fighting for legal cannabis. The medical benefits of marijuana are some of the most powerful reasons for legalization. For those who are still not convinced, there are substantial economic and social reasons to legalize it as well.
MERRY JANE News has gathered the most important arguments for the legalization of marijuana in the video above, so study up, talk to your family, neighbors, and local politicians, and let’s fight for a greener future together.
