Reasons to Legalize Hemp, Cannabis, & CBD

Reasons to Legalize Cannabis, Hemp, & CBD:
(this article is not to be taken as medical advice)
* Creates paper in place of trees. Trees take a long time to grow while hemp can be grown quickly.
* Hemp grows in just about any environment (tundra and desert it may have problems)
* Due to hemp's growability any nation or state can reap the benefits of it's crop
* Hemp contains chemicals which could be used in place of fuels that destroy the environment to secure (e.g. fracking, oceanic oil spills)
* Hemp can be grown by a highly reproducible natural seed, which eliminates industry monopolization
* Hemp can replace "fossil fuels" for cars & plastics (very likely to be better plastics for the environment)
* Hemp can potentially replace "fossil fuels" in the pharmaceutical industry
* Hemp needs less toxic means of securing production (e.g. more pest resistant[9])
* Hemp is known for having effective bioremediation/phyto-remediation qualities - meaning it can be used to cleanse the soil[7]
* Hemp is reported to produce several times more paper per acre than trees[9]
* Hemp is reported to be beneficial for the soil, other products such as cotton are reported to ravage soil[8]. This provides the logic that hemp does not need crop rotation as intensely as crops such as cotton and yield a higher benefit per acre.
* Hemp can be used to create thousands of legitimate products (many appear to be superior to current options in society)
* Hemp can be used for products like hempcrete[6], which is said to be superior to concrete for certain jobs
* Hemp is known to harbor every essential amino acid & essential fatty acid our body needs[3]
* At least one founding father of America is reported to have grown hemp
* Hemp has been grown for thousands of years on our planet as a highly productive crop
* Hemp appears to be ideal for eco-sustainability and offers many highly beneficial upgrades for society. Industry profits and government bias are key components behind keeping hemp and cannabis illegal.

The illegality of industrial hemp shows negligence of government to do the right thing.
Medical Cannabis:
* CBD & THC have been shown in numerous scientific studies to effectively fight cancer, tumors, and other physiological ailments (however it is shown to be incapable of curing some terminal stages of cancer)
* Studies show that CBD & THC are preventative against cancer[10]
* Cannabis is a viable and often superior alternative to opiate pain killers
* Cannabis is the best anti-depressant this author has experienced
* Medical cannabis treats a multitude of illnesses with much more acceptable side effects than typical pharmaceuticals
* Smoking cannabis can be incredible with stress relief
* In my experiences CBD edibles generally taste good while offering nutrition, with increased health benefits that are evidenced further by science every year
* Legal medical marijuana provides a non-illegal environment for medical application of cannabis. Cannabis is the apex cure known for several symptoms in many medical survivor's experience based opinions (which the writer of this article has witnessed first hand)
* Scientists found that chronic low doses of cannabis assists age-related cognitive impairments[4][5]

The medical benefits of THC & CBD are a threat to corrupted pharmaceutical agendas due not being able to patent nature. Anyone with the right conditions (such as legality, money to do it, space) could renewably grow their own medicine in their own home. This is a threat to a powerful multi-billion dollar industry and thus has been attacked unfairly with biased research and deceptive and/or skewed propaganda.
Recreational Cannabis:
* Helps eliminate black market dominance of sales - suppresses crime syndicate profits
* Cannabis can help deconstruct the opiate epidemic
* Helps eliminate a scenario of non-criminals associating with criminals - those that smoke cannabis need access to illegal trade and trafficking to obtain their preferred past time (this can lead to harsher drug use when the black market offers unregulated harder drugs instead of a regulated dispensary)
* Legal cannabis frees up the judicial, jail, and prison system to handle much more threatening or grievous law offenses
* Legal cannabis eliminates non-violent/non-criminal smokers from jail and prison (a human rights equation)
* Legal cannabis allows for tested cannabis so toxicity is prevented in consumers
* Legal cannabis is a tourist attraction
* Legal cannabis generates tax money for countries & states that legalize
* Legal cannabis provides new jobs and economic growth
* Gives people a relatively healthy alternative to harsher & more deadly drugs
* Reduction in crime has been attributed to legalizing cannabis[1][2]
* Reduction in alcoholism can be achieved by providing people a better option - in general alcohol is detrimental as a poison to the body, both physiologically and psychologically addictive, little reported positive physiological effect, impairs judgment, increases aggressiveness, impairs dexterity, is hard on body organs, and is currently legal in all 50 states
* Despite biased government propaganda framing cannabis as a substance that enhances aggression, the apparent pervading effect of cannabis is the opposite.
* Gives fully moral and ethical smokers a breath of freedom, instead of sensing a police state in their own homes
* CBD & THC (together) are known as powerful anti-cancer and anti-tumor agents, to this writers knowledge there is no other known drug that allows the euphoria people seek that doubles as such a powerful healing agent
* A wide range of new science, new medicines, and new products come from hemp, cannabis, and CBD
* It is traditionally noted to be impossible to die from a cannabis overdose, one cannot consume enough of it in a practical environment to reach fatal toxicity levels

"The day of legalization of recreational cannabis in my state has been the
highest feeling of freedom I have experienced as an American." ~Phillip Walker
Some of the Cons of Legalized Cannabis:
* A rise in cannabis consumption is likely to be typical of legalization. With everything considered this is not entirely a bad thing.
* Cannabis can temporarily impair judgment and dexterity (this is different depending on the person, dose, type of cannabis, method of consumption, etc). Cannabis can also have the opposite effect for judgment and rarely for dexterity (e.g. a more calm mind for judgment, more empathy or sensibility after smoking has been experienced by this writer)
* There is not yet a perfect way to judge if someone is impaired to drive on cannabis, this can yield a perfectly capable driver who smoked in days previous being persecuted with a DUI. The blood levels of cannabis appear to not be an accurate way to judge if someone is impaired enough to not be able to drive safely.
* Chronic cannabis use can lead to psychological addiction - through the normality of the positive conscious effects of cannabis life can become lesser without them. Psychological addiction to cannabis can be eliminated after enough time of sobriety. In comparison to opiate, alcohol, or cigarette addiction cannabis is on the moderate side.
* Cannabis can have a bad effect on intelligence (it can also have the opposite effect - for example musical inspiration)
* Chronic use of cannabis from a young age can inhibit one's vocabulary, due to consistent memory loss
* One's ability to learn new things is temporarily suppressed while smoking due to memory loss
* Cannabis consumption can cause anxiety or apathy as an extreme side effect, in contrast to other drugs both pharmaceutical and conventional vices, these are moderate side effects and are assumable to largely be experienced by people who do not further consume cannabis. (examples of extreme alcoholism or opiate side effects: death, severe addiction, severe physiological dysfunction, intensified body aging)

While it is patently true that legalized recreational cannabis has downsides, it is obvious the public has an inevitability of some sort of vice. Cannabis is a viable and much more healthy alternative for drugs like alcohol, opiates, and cigarettes. As a consumer of cannabis I can say that it has been one of the best therapeutic and stress relief medications possible under harsh conditions.

It should be also said that cannabis consumption is not for everyone, similar to other forms of consumption...
