  1. If Cigarettes and Alcohol don’t help the economy, how’s legalizing weed gonna help? It can pacify their stress due to their current economic situation but that’s about it. Lot of people smoke weed but it ain’t the majority of Americans…. But they should still legalize it. That’s my 2 Cents.

  2. The thing about legal alcohol and tobacco is that the money gleaned from taxing them is already accounted into city and states’ budgets. When officials make budget projections they already have an idea of what they’re going to make from taxes, parking and speeding fines, etc. Legal marijuana would inject a brand new stream of income into their coffers. That’s not to say that it’ll fix the economy, but Massachusetts estimated $300 mill in new money from regulating and taxing the sale of marijuana- not too shabby… that could save a whole lot of jobs and/or programs.
