There are those that believe that law enforcement resources are being wasted and statistically speaking most drug users never get caught. In the efforts of wasting less resources on drug trafficking the government should spend more money on those in need of treatment, rehabilitation, education and training programs. Enforcement of marijuana laws are expensive, 6 years ago 500 economist supported for legalization of marijuana because prohibition costs $7.7 billion per year. Taxing marijuana could prove to be profitable. "The federal government should decriminalize marijuana and tax the revenue" A study done by Fraser Institute found that both legalizing and taxing marijuana can produce a considerable amount of revenue. Which is quoted by a reporter from Fraser and Institute.
Furthermore, needless to say the enforcement of marijuana laws are just cruel. First offenders who are among the 700,000 Americans arrested for possession yearly who are fired from their jobs and taken away from their families then placed in to the prison system, that turns first time convicts into harden criminals. Research has also shown that marijuana a drug that is not legal is far less harmful then alcohol and tobacco, both legalized. Marijuana has been repeatedly proven not to cause cancer, heart disease, brain damage, liver disease, emphysema, or any other health issues. It is not harmful to the body. In fact it has been proven to be less harmful then legal drugs. Both tobacco and alcohol cause over 700,000 deaths per year combine while marijuana has never been responsible for a documented death. There is evidence that suggests marijuana causes impaired short-term memory loss, however new studies show that the impairment is caused by THC's link to a previously misunderstand enzyme in the brain. New studies on how marijuana interacts with the brain may help to treat Alzheimer's disease and Epilepsy.
