Legalize Marijauna

Target: U.S. Government

Petition Background (Preamble):

The legalization of marijauna must be done. The legalization can benefit the economy especially in its' latest recession.

One in six people are incarcerated for marijauna related charges. There are at least two million people in jail today. That makes for about 333,333 people in jail for marijauna related charges for life.

There is something wrong there. When there are murderers who get out of jail instead of harmless marijauna users and sellers.(Learn more from Eric Schlosser) It costs anywhere from 15,000 to 30,000 to keep one person incarcerated for one year.

Legalize marijauna for the economic health and use it for something more productive.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on the U.S. government to legalize marijauna.

This will help the economy by getting much needed money used elsewhere besides to incarcerate harmless peoples and use it to regulate marijauna like tobacco or alcohol.

People will always abuse things like they do alcohol or over the counters. It's just the fact by giving a privilege they won't abuse it and are more likely to use it in a mature matter.
