Through the past several decades, Kentucky has depended on the coal mining industry as one of their largest sources of revenue and employment. However, recent federal and state regulations have reduced the amount of coal that can be mined and used as an energy source due to the rising amount of concern towards its environmental effects and contribution to global warming. This has left Kentucky’s economy declining, with thousands of jobs and millions of dollars of revenue lost. This is why it is critical that Kentucky finds a new source of revenue and employment. Through various studies, it has been found that the legalization and production of marijuana has helped numerous states (such as Colorado and California) economically and environmentally. In just the short amount that marijuana has been legal in Colorado, the state has already brought in over a billion dollars in tax revenue and have created up to 18,000 jobs. Colorado has also been able to use this large amount of tax revenue to help fund numerous programs such as education, the funding of schools, and opening rehabilitation to help those with drug addiction.
