There are not many countries in the world where marijuana is legalized. However, there are several regions in the United States where this substance can be used. California wants to join them and this could come true if voters pass a new proposition in November.
We are not talking here just about medical research. You will be able to smoke marijuana just for fun. If weed is legalized, its industry could grow to 6.5 billion dollars in 2020. Researchers said that sales will climb by 1,5 billion dollars in the first year. John Kagia, executive vice president at New Frontier thinks that the activation of the market in California will make it the new epicenter in cannabis. Moreover, California is one of the biggest states in the U.S. and its economy will help the marijuana industry develop.
They think that the industry will be different from the one in Washington and there will be more benefits due to it.California is expected to be a leader in creating rules of how people should use marijuana. Moreover, there will more research in how to stop the drug abuse and what effects it will have on the other industries. The Adult Use of Marijuana Act is going to spend 10 percent of sales tax collected to find out all these things.
What is interesting is that California will apply greater pressure on Mexico to legalize cannabis. This could be a huge event for all those who want to consume marijuana and also for those who want to sell it. There are already people trying to get in the United States with drugs using illegal ways. This could happen because the president of Mexico became a proponent of medical cannabis use. If the law will pass in California, there will be other countries doing the same.
Is marijuana good for us? It has its advantages. First of all, many people used it against chronic diseases and it seems that this substance can really help. Medical research could prove that marijuana is good for our health. Moreover, it is said it gives you a great mood and there were no deaths because of it. There are some disadvantages also. Every drug can create addiction. If you consume too much marijuana, you will start to lose your memory. You will not have control over your body.
We will see what the voters will decide in November. If marijuana is legalized, there will be a lot of people interested in using it which means that its industry will make more money than ever before.
