The uproar of controversy for the battle of legalization for marijuana has become upheaval topic. West coast states have adopted the legalization of marijuana for recreational and medicinal purposes. However, this has sparked major conversation in regards to if this is a good or bad thing.
Now we must wait and see, will the east coast slowly adopt these laws as well. Upon the presidential election states such as Arkansas, Florida and North Dakota have initialized a law for using marijuana for medicinal purposes. This could potentially benefit the U.S or be detrimental to our society. This raises a lot of conversation about people who have had criminal charges for the use of marijuana.
With many more states pushing for the legalization of marijuana in recreational or medicinal purposes, this puts major pressure on the federal government. This epidemic is moving rapid, and is much closer than American's think. Therefore in the next year or so, it may be common to see someone walking down the street blowing potent trees, only time will tell.
