We need to protect our future and solidify a time where the prohibition of marijuana is no more. For decades this country has stood strong on the fact that Marijuana is a disservice to society. Even after evidence intangible and tangible comes out about the polarizing plant, our government still proceeds to unjustly incarcerate millions of Americans every year on charges of possession of marijuana.
We have a broken criminal justice system that seems to serve an agenda larger than getting drug abusers and offenders off the street. The number of black and brown men being incarcerated for this plant is proportionally larger than any other race and ethnicity. It has become a perfect way to restrain the poor, and populate jails and prisons to initiate free labor and depopulation in this country.
These claims are all backed by facts and credentials, and many Americans have no clue on how the government has dealt with this epidemic of criminal injustice. According to DrugPolicy.org, over $51 billion is spent annually on the war on drugs. In a country that struggles to compete globally in education, innovation and other areas of interest this is a bit discerning. This also includes a 57% incarceration rate for Blacks and Latinos, which was the case in 2014 alone. These problems have been going on for over 30 years now and it is time for a generation to step up, and help reunite crumbled families.
Here are 10 dynamic reasons why legalizing marijuana will change the world and set our society on a new course of achievement. The millennials will make a change:

After reading all of the previous post, this one may be a bit vague. (So to ensure you I was NOT high when I wrote this, I will explain.) Marijuana has been fueled by outside perception. When in reality prior to 1937, people throughout the world for nearly 5,000 years consumed and utilized the plant for its medicinal and therapeutic effects. The consumption of the plant as we know it has led to the separation of families through incarceration and have placed countless of people in circumstances that they otherwise may have never been in, due mostly to being wrongly stigmatized as a gateway drug.
Cannabis can truly be the crop that transcends our generation. Opening opportunities for the PEOPLE to take over an industry that hasn’t been gutted by corporations and big businesses. The opportunity to offer products, infrastructure and a system that holds the value of the people as first priority. The marijuana industry is one that we have to take as our own and this alone will set the United States society on a new path. Where we build businesses and business owners, subject our tax revenue towards education and we treat every human with decency no matter their condition. Time has come to ratify our war on drugs and legalize Marijuana for good.
