By legalizing marijuana, substantial taxes could be added to specific purchases. Though the particular price of pot would be more or less close to the existing cost in the market, the revenue that can be generated from this could be re-channelled to the state and local businesses through taxes instead of profit for drug dealers. This would, of course, translate to the creation of jobs and other programs necessary for nation-building. Aside from this, marijuana legalization would also help decrease if not totally eliminate crimes that are related to drugs. Marijuana has long become a multi-million industry which involves the participation of thousands of young people. Making pot legal can help get them stay out of criminal acts.
