In this essay I will be stating statistics, facts, and opinions on why weed should be leagal. I am not saying I use weed, but I do think that it would help America economically and medically.  
 
In the USA there are many drugs that we are allowed to use. We can use alcohol and tabacoo products. One drug that I would concider harmless would be Marijuana. In the year of 2008 there were a total of 12,318 deaths related to alcohol. The number of people killed by tabacoo should not surprise you since you pretty much see it on TV commercials every day. There are a total of 5.4 million deaths related to tabacoo, per year! Even though we always hear how tabacoo can kill people, no one expects it to be more then a few thousands per year. The only way that you will be hurt smoking weed is by accidents. A big part of the accidents come from drug dealing, drugs gangs, etc. If the use of weed were leagal, there would be no need for gangs such as these. 
 
Also, since the United States have such a huge national debt, the leaglization of weed would help. Weed is the United State's leading cash crop. America is a farming country. Our country was pretty much founded off of the growth of drugs. Tabacoo is the drug that started this country's economy. With all the tabacoo talk about how it's bad and hurtfull to your health is damaging its sales. There are more positive talks about weed then there is any other drug out there. (unless you are talking to a huge "druggy," then they will say anything that gets you screwed up the most is the best).  
 
When it comes to health issues, there are two types of weed. There is street weed, then there is medical weed. Medical weed is leagal in California. You are allowed to carry around eight oz of weed. You are allowed to grow six mature plans, or 12 immature plants. When it comes to medical weed it is not like other cancer medicines. 
 
 Weed DOES NOT cause the following symptoms most cancer medicines cause: 
 
Nausea, 
 
Vomitting, 
 
Lack of wanting to eat.
