The legalization of weed has been discussed for over 5 years. The topic of weed however has always been discussed for over 50 years. In CNN’s latest reports and findings from research, it has now been proven that marijuana does not negatively affect you, instead it is used for medicine. It produces THC within the body, which is why the muscles get so relaxed, then after the THC is developed the body sends dope-amine, a hormone that gives pleasurable shocks throughout the body. After these facts have been proven there have been a couple of places where weed is now legal, which includes Washington DC. After a 7 to 3 vote, the people of DC are allowed to carry up to 2 ounces of weed, grow it, and give it to someone who is 21 and older. This is huge, “pro-weeds men” have been pushing for something like this for a very long tie and they are finally starting to see progress within the movement. Already being legal in DC, Colorado, and some parts of California, it is inevitable that in the next five years we will see the legalization of weed come about in more and more states. Because of this movement not only for recreational purposes, but for medicinal purposes as well, the federal government will have to make it legal. In order for the federal government to make the money that is already being made by dealers everyday, they need to make it legal across the country. Although there will be a lot of backlash from the country and conservationists, there will be even more celebration. The legalization of weed will happen, it’s just a matter of when.
