Many states in the U.S. have already decriminalized marijuana use including: California, Colorado, and Oregon. Yet, there are many states who say they will never follow suit across the midwest, citing health concerns. Still, it is hard to imagine marijuana being illegal, when cigarettes and alcohol are both legal to purchase if you are old enough.
Should marijuana use be legalized nationwide or are states like California fall under federal regulation? Ultimately, this is a decision that will affect all of us at some point. There is also no doubt that marijuana is a massive industry, with billions of dollars in profits at stake.
