Transcript of Legalizing Marijuana

Pro Legalization
http://vodpod.com/watch/2889164-video-more-states-legalizing-medical-marijuana -would save tons of money that we use trying to keep marijuana off the streets -would help the US make money by being able to put a tax on it -has many medical purposes -no more harmful than alcohol or tobacco
